How exactly does the system tester calculate the profit on a long trade.Supposing I go long when the stochastic oscillator is below 20 and there is a crossover of the %K and %D lines--I exit when there is an exit signal for the Intellisense short term Buy stop.Does the system tester calculate the profit on the highest closing price reached between the signals?

Hello,

This is going to depend on a few different factors, including where you are using the IntelliStop (i.e. using it on the Sell Order tab or using it on the Buy Order tab under the Limit or Stop Price field. Generally speaking, long profit is  ( (number of shares * exit price)  - ( number of shares * entry price ) ) - commission. Entry and exit prices are determined by types of orders used and any stops specified in the system. Slippage will also affect entry and exit prices.
