Hi Barry,

I noticed some inconsistencies with the Dynamic Eights Stop that I have been testing in a 5M HA time frame (symbol ES). The profile has only one strat and TP (a Fixed Loss Stop in addition to the Dynamic Eights Stop). The attached screenshot shows three marked trades. All of them should have been stopped out by the Dynamic Eights Stop, but only the one in the middle was.

Switching to a regular 5M time frame, the voteline shows a trade entered on September 28th that has yet to get stopped out (screenshot #2). The Dynamic Eights Stop is never activated here...

Can you attach the trade plan and/or the strategy you're using?

I do see some strangeness in regards to that stop when using lower timeframes, like 5 minutes, with futures. There must be some issue with the calculation of it. I see it using the Eights stop as well. I will report it.

Hi Barry,

Any news regarding this? As far as I'm concerned this is arguably the best stop routine found in the toolbox...as long as it's working properly obviously.
