Drag Entries and Exits onto the Model surface. Each Entry should have at least one Exit under it. The Exit type (Sell, Cover) should match the Entry type (Buy, Sell)
You can drag one or more Conditions onto the Entries and Exits to define the Model's trading logic. If a Condition uses an indicator, you can choose any technical indicator, or a price component like open, high, low, close or volume.
You can drag a Qualifier onto a Condition to impose different behavior on it, such as enforcing that it occurs a certain number of days in a row.
Breakout model for NASDAQ (other universes have fewer similar breakouts). Looks good as is for past 10 years of bull market. The caveat is this breakout like others is weakest during market retreats, hence a 20-year backtest looks crappy.
Homework: This is where a whole-market indicator (like Death/Golden Cross) is useful. Add that filter to both the buy and sell sides to get a better 20 year record (that beats SPY with lower drawdown) but underperforms SPY over the last 10 years. There are other market filters.
