You're playing against people who would take the opportunities you're going for in microseconds or milliseconds. What kind of latency are you getting with TradeStation? You need to do two things: measure this latency. get tick by tick data and do a real backtest. Probably your opportunities are gone in 10 milliseconds so you need to do this.

I know it's not what you want to hear, but the smaller the time-frame the more limit orders should be focused on (which can change the design of a strategy entirely). Due to the nature of the futures markets, having a gap in liquidity can obviously cause discrepancies with market orders, but can guarantee some nature of being filled using limits.
