Back-test slow due to 100,000+ trades...

Once an initial trade is placed, if the new stop price is > old stop price, the pending order will delete and the new "calibrated" order (stop, lots and targets) is then placed....

Problem is, We're talking 100k+ as each trade setup may "calibrate" 20+ times, 4 separate trades respectively....
