Dear Breesean, what you do this way is to guess! And with guessing you will not reach to the end you wish. In order to find the best inputs for any indicator you need professional optimizer to calculate the best inputs for the indicator you want to use. For this purpose you can use EA Stuido in EA Forexacademy. Select BB indicator and all the rest entry and exit conditions and run the optimizer with predefined acceptance criteria. It is important also to upload the historical data from your broker! That is essential! Make sure also to use at least 200 000 bars if you with to trade on M1, 100 000 for M5 and 50 000 for the higher time frames. That way you will avoid your strategy to be over-optimized. I have already some experience with this software, so do not hesitate to write me any questions.
