Description: Although the maximum theoretical number of trades per day is 100, and the maximum theoretical open trades is 100, they are pending orders so the probability of all being filled is very low. The maximum open orders (all pairs) has typically been 2 to 8 at one time, and perhaps as high as 12.
Monthly and weekly charts used to determine trend. Daily momentum used for entry. This system places targets and stops at time or order placement. Pending orders are used for entry to ensure good spread.
