EAController Test Stopped
« on: May 07, 2017, 10:22:09 AM »
I have decided to stop testing EA controller. I have spent a LOT of time on trying to get this one set up and working properly and it just isn't working for me. Not in terms of results, i'm talking here about basic set up and running. I did manage to get it work on a separate account for managing other EA's, but i couldn't get it set up correctly for using the provided EA's that come bundled with the controller and therefore my test is of no use.

For starters, i only got one pair out of four working (or which i thought was working); and then i recently find out that the controller isn't controlling even this as it should. I have worked back and forth with the seller, including sending across multiple screenshots of my exact setup and settings (and there are a lot) to try and troubleshoot what is going wrong but no solution could be found and this was costing me a lot of time but more importantly means i do not have an accurate test account to be able to show you.

This is the first time in 8+ years of donnaforex that i've had to admit defeat with basic setting up of a product.

As i have mentioned before, this product is interesting and i believe it does hold value if you have the right EA's to attach it to, but it is definitely not one for a newbie (both in forex and in computers generally) to jump in to. Whether the problem i have had is with myself or with the product i cannot say with certainty, like i said i got it working with third party EA's but just not the ones the seller provides. I do know i put a lot of effort into making sure everything was right and clarifying this at every step of the way - all to no avail.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone else trading this one if you managed to get it working with the provided EA's correctly, please share with us the secret to getting it going ;)

We actually know why three of the supplied EAs did not work - this was because the account size of 400 pounds being used by Donna was too small for those EAs which have an order multiple feature. And hence have a safety feature which prevents a trade sequence starting if it is deemed too risky for if and when the fifth Order Multiple would be activated.

New versions of these three EAs were issued yesterday which overcome this issue. However, $1000 would still be a better starting point. See https://donnaforex.com/index.php?topic=19585.msg365406#new

The issue for the 4th EA, based on the FX Autotrader Elite, is still perplexing for me since Donna's setup is the only one which is not working as far as I am aware.

Issues that have arisen from other users and which have been resolved include:
1. Account History in the MT4 being set to "This Month Only" instead of All History.
2. The FXBlue QuickChannel dll not being installed on both MT4s
3. The ID# field on the EA on the demo account not being left blank
4. The Mode selection on the Controller not being set to Signal
5. The same ID# not being used on the Controller and the EA on the live platform
