Fabio, this question has been asked numerous times and this is why we write FAQs and record videos. Read the FAQ:

Every time I run a Strategy I get a different result. Why?

I understand that depending on the value per input some operations may be lost, so when I run the backtest again, it will return different results. I was wondering if there was any way of limiting the number of inputs, so that they are always the same inputs and the same results, without changing the percentage per input.

Two accounts to ask the same question basically? I've merged your duplicate topics.

The inconsistent results come from having TOO MANY SIGNALS, not too many inputs.

You can limit this by:
- decreasing position size
- decreasing number of symbols
- increasing margin factor

Another approach is using Transaction Weight like I described in the video.

You can limit the number of signals through Strategy Settings > Position Sizing > Max Entry Signals.

Max Entry Signals applies only to the backtest, not to live trading.

When trading live, you will get all the signals your strategy generates. The only way to limit the signals is to C# code the strategy to do that.
