Eli, $1m average dollar volume is very low. $10m is much more realistic. but again it depends whether you trade shares in multiple of hundreds or thousands.

I'm also a new user of SF and curious to know about other's ROI's. My best system has an ROI of 680% for 500 trades with a holding period of 1 day. Risk to reward is 2.06
Trading the open depends on the average daily trading volume olf the stock and of how many shares you want to trade. For liquid NYSE/NASDAQ stocks, an MOO is a very good option. For less liquid stocks, I would still trade an MOO on NYSE, but for Nasdaq I would be careful. Better to work with limit orders in the market. On the NYse, the specialist will provide you with the required liquidity, but you have to pay up for it.
Hopefully other users also will post their trade statistics. By the way, ROI may not be the right profitability measure. My average gain per trade increase as my holding period increases, but my ROI goes down, because ROI is calculated on an annual basis.
