I know you are not a fan of backtesting but I have run simone on GU since the beginning of the year (current version that is). The results aren't great but I noticed that she is only trading short despite the settings allowing trade long and short. I know the previous versions traded some long but then the fibs weren't redrawing etc so their backtests are no good. Perhaps you could look into this. I have attached my strategy report.
Joking apart, have you been using the Rsi trend filter?
I do not think there is a problem here. Up until last Friday, Simone was taking long and short trades. Difficulties with various aspects of coding logic have prevented her taking many trades this week; those she has taken have been in the correct direction given my setup and the limitations of the coding logic probs.
