Peeking oil volatility

We are currently studding a strategy for CL. Basically it says that if the percentage change in the 22d relative ATR is lower than –3% then a short position must be executed at the close of the session and buy it back at the close of the next day. Also if the percentage is higher than +3% then long position must be established at the close of the session and to be sold at the end of the next day.

So far we got a z-value of 2.8 without stop-loss using our data mine of daily CL prices since 1986. So far this 209 the overall return would be about 60% with a draw down of 20% in march.

What’s the next step?

1) try another percentage changes like four, five and so on.

2) add an stop loss to the system itself for smoothing the draw downs.

3) paper trade it for at least one week.
