Title: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on June 22, 2015, 01:23:51 PM
Hello everyone,

We would like to introduce our new FOREX robot - Forex Trend Detector.

http://www.forextrenddetector.com/

This is an impulse following EA, designed to follow the "Smart Money" on the market.

At the moment we have 6-month verified REAL money account with 300% (2122 pips) gain:

http://www.myfxbook.com/members/fxtrenddetector/forex-trend-detector/1280220

As well we have tested this strategy more than 2 years on different real money accounts with excellent results.


Our official launch is today and the price is more than affordable.

Here is how the trading of Forex Trend Detector looks like:

Hi people, I made some backtests this weekend and it look great... 99% tick data backtests looks better than in their website. I already started a demo test and will do more backtests to compare with demo trading.

Until now my backtests match very well their live account... but they have some "experimental" trades that would not happen now.

Regards

Yes this EA looks interesting. Please share your backtest results. Looking through the BT on vendor site creates questions since lot sizes increase dramatically suddenly a few times in the BT.

Hello,

This is just the "RecoveryMode" draw-down compensating algorithm in action. If you disable the "RecoveryMode" the results are also good with Profit Factor greater than 2, lower draw-down and smoother equity curve. The recovery option works great with this EA, because when it loses it loses only 35 pips per trade, but when it catch a good market impulse it can make several hundred pips with the increased lot size and the profit would be great in this case. So this is just a great option for traders which are ready to deal with the risk and unleash the greater profit potential of Forex Trend Detector. Actually we have reports from several our users performed 99% tick tests with results even better then ours.

Good question, I just checked Trend Detector website. Why your backtests have one of the dates with 2016 ?  :D

My tickdata backtests made for IC Markets feed:

From 2007 to 2015
http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/trenddetect2007/82852
Rom 2011 to 2015
http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/trenddetectoreu/82841

From 2007 to 2015 I added slippage.

Thank you

We appreciate your tick data backtests. The end date in our backtests is just set forward, because that way we do not need to set the exact date every time we perform a backtest. The backtest just ends when the history ends - it is that simple. You can put as an end date 2050 if you wish. Of course only a small part of the traders are familiar with the backtest specifics so we do not mind to answer naive questions like this.

This EA is made for trading in turbulent conditions so keep it running. Though I would not keep any open positions over the coming weekend, big gap risk on Monday

Running this on live account the day of the release and not impressed with it. Ran it through the Greece turbulence and not much happened. Anyone else running this with any success?
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: gillybet on July 24, 2015, 06:05:31 AM
Ran it live and gave up after quite a few losses in a row with no sign of a positive trade - not what I expected, got refunded already. Disappointing. Don't usually like to bag stuff but I am fed up with things not performing as promised -incredibly precise entries?..not.

This EA just took two profitable trades. I think what this EA good is not accuracy. Strategy that involves good risk:reward tends to have less accuracy because it wants to catch the home run.

This EA based in myfxbook has RR 1.7:1 with average winning rate of 52%. Added money management recovery should bring it to profitable over longer term. That's how i see it. I will let this EA run at 0.5 risk as part of my portfolio of EA.

Abolutely agree with you. I run at risk 0.5 with Recovery ON. It has a good risk reward ratio and the winning rate is good too (usually these EAs has a winning rate of about 40%). I think it will be profitable in the long run

When you buy an EA u should understand what are u buying: this is not a scalper with 80% accuracy and a risk reward ratio of 10/1, where with one stop loss u lose many months of gains. It has a solid startegy based on volatility, a good risk reward ratio and also a good winning rate compared to the average of volatility based EAs. For the time the ref account of the vendor is running this has showed much better results than 2 of the mostly well knows volatility based eas aand is very close to a new equity high:
Fx Monetizer is in DD from months
Keltner PRO on EURUSD had negative reults

Just compare the results on the attached screens

Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: Byte on September 02, 2015, 07:48:07 AM
Hi,
to me the only "issue" is, that it is not trading a lot, but it took pretty much the same trades as on the official account (except for two when my MT4 froze due to another EA). In the end this is an EA that does not have a high win rate but much higher winning than losing pips.
So far I feel comfortable with the EA.
Since June 30, the EA made me 35 pips, which in the currently difficult market is not so bad, I think. And it would be significantly more, if I had not missed the two win trades.
At the same time, I have to admit when I see the adds I still dream of becoming reach quick .. something that obviously is not that easy ;-)

NOT ONLY DOES IT NOT WORK, BUT THE VENDOR REFUSES TO GIVE A REFUND EVEN THOUGH I ASKED FOR IT, CITING CLAUSES IN THEIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS THAT I DID NOT REPLY CONFIRMING I WANTED A REFUND.

HELLO, I ASKED FOR A REFUND BECAUSE I WANTED A REFUND BECAUSE YOUR DODGY PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK

Absolutely agree with Anchorpoint, FX Automater is the older EA developer on the markets and always showed to be very fair and supportive: they continue to update also EA released many years ago and from what i know they have always respected their refund policy. Of course, the refund request should be sent in time (60 days).
As for your assertion that it does not work, what you mean: you attach the EA on the chart it does not initialize? they offer very good technical support; or u was expecting the Holy grail with 10% monthly granted with no DD?
I would be very carefull to use the SCAM term

What I mean by the EA does not work is the EA does not take trades, so it's essentially a useless piece of expensive software.

The refund request WAS sent long before the 60 days, I did not know I was required to follow up with a confirmation email saying I wanted a refund, after I had already asked for a refund. So essentially you have to ask them twice. I sent the refund request, I expected a refund.

My perception is my reality, I feel like I have been scammed, therefore in my eyes, its a SCAM.

Your views and experiences and feelings may differ from mine, that does not make mine any less valid.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: TradeNow on September 10, 2015, 10:27:19 PM
if thats true that they didnt send you the refund in the 60 day time frame i would call it scam also.
Hopefully vendor will show up here to clear things. Otherwise this would be realy bad for vendors reputation.

Post by: corre971 on September 10, 2015, 10:38:54 PM
Honestly don't know what to say about refund, but the EA takes trades when it supposed to be triggered. Now for example i am long on both my real and demo account exactly like on the vendor account.
So the EA works. We cannot know If will be profitable or not but it works.

I ran it for 4 weeks out of the 60 day trial, it only took losing trades but most of the time it sat idle doing nothing at all, therefore I decided to request a refund to be well within my 60 day refund period...

I can not comment on how it is performing over the longer term.

Post by: firewight on September 11, 2015, 07:04:49 AM
As an update to this saga, the vendor whilst unable to complete a refund has offered an alternate product to try, so I would like to say at least they have tried to offer a resolution.

I ran it for 4 weeks out of the 60 day trial, it only took losing trades but most of the time it sat idle doing nothing at all, therefore I decided to request a refund to be well within my 60 day refund period...

I can not comment on how it is performing over the longer term.


It could possibly be your broker. Have you tried using another broker (ECN) on a VPS with a fast latency connection? I am getting trades about once or twice a week so far.

According our terms and conditions:

"Our company reserves the right to ask customers to confirm their
refund request. If the customer does not confirm it within 3 calendar
days, then the refund request is considered as invalid and it is
annulled."

Anyway we always do our best to resolve the issue and compensate the customer ... despite of all abusive words that we get.

About the Forex Trend Detector performance and trading frequency we will keep calm and let the time speak.
We have got even harder criticism after WallStreet Forex Robot was released and about 5 years later it is the only one commercial EA with nearly 5 year old fully verified by myfxbook REAL money account with currently almost 600 percent gain.

There is no such thing as holy grail in the forex trading. Every good EA has its bad periods - the only thing that matters is the long-term performance.

Yep - this was the worst case for this EA.
10 trades are the default max number of trades. I got also this full hit - running this on a small account with 2% risk (=moderate risk)
I bought this EA after it was released end of June and up to now each month was a looser

Regarding your question - here is the chapter from the manual:
"MaxTrades Ė maximum allowed trades
The default value is 10 trades, opened in 5 minute intervals in the direction of a
strong market impulse. This could happen during very rare and very strong market impulses, which are the most profitable for Forex Trend Detector EA. The risk in situations like that, even with 10 open trades is minimal, because only a few of these trades could be closed at Stop Loss. In fact in 90% of the cases you will have up to 5 trades at a time."

Sorry but this is only a phrase
From what I have seen up to now this EA does not trade spikes - it needs a little bit more to activate the whole basket of trades. Also yesterday the EA opened 10 trades because the EUR stayed on a high level for some time. Often we have seen after a consolidation further gains and if I have a look to the chart there was also a higher high after a consolidation.
What I did not like is the "exit" strategy

If I have to decide for a volatility breakout EA when I have to switch off then the EA is worthless - I need then a crystal ball to know which news will be a true breakout and which not.

Its not a phrase. Its the result of many years trading eas and watching such events. NFP in the last years was mostly a disaster for any ea.
Its much more safe to switch all eas off at NFP. From the economic point of view its useless for a breakout ea to follow a short trend which is against the major trend. EURUSD is in a stable downtrend. A news like NFP only cause a short impulse as you saw last friday. If the impulse is in the major direction such eas could work. Otherwise its more likely that they will be caught in a semi breakout scenario.
Why the developers decided to open 10 trades simultaneous is their secret. Also i didnt know the parameters they use but the last weeks we saw nice trends and the ea didnt trade. From a trend follower i expect much more than i saw with this system.

This doesnt mean that the ea is not succesfull in the long run. With the next trades the ea could recover and reach new highs.
But NFP is the worst case scenario for any ea i saw the last years and i saw hundreds of holy grails come and go here.

Agree. Patience and appropriate risk level so you can stand the dd periods. Then a few successful big trade baskets a year will make homeruns and provide the good yearly return. I trade on 1% risk with default recovery and made a good new equity high today.

You can catalogue all expert advisors in not more than 6 - 7 categories and each one of these has its "grandfather"  :D

As Wall Street is the "Grandfather" of the huge amounts of trend scalpers retracement, FGB can be considered the grandfather of all the volatility based eas. Both eas are fundamental in the history of automated trading; but while Wally is still running and showing consistent returns with continues updates, FGB was abandoned by its creator and the account is not updated anymore. FX Trend Detector strategy should be more consistent. Anyway as usual time will tell

Check the trade examples in the first page of the thread and you will get the point. I know it is annoying to wait sometimes weeks for a good trading setup, but the more experienced traders appreciate this approach.  Happy holydays to everyone!

Any idea how this EA would have fared in the horrific ForexGrowthBot DD period of around a year where it  pretty much blew all profit trying to trade trends in ranging/ whipsaw market conditions?

Is there a piece of code scanning the overall market to see if it is a good time to be trading trends? As we know, there are times when these are simply unsustainable and you see whipsaws galore which is a nightmare for trend based EAs if they don't have such a feature.

This EA has gone live at a time when trend following is working so hasn't yet gone through such a period yet.

This seemed the biggest omission from FGB, i.e. not working out the market conditions when it should be fully out of the market and not trading or indeed adjusting to conditions.

Thanks

my opinion is :

-opens trades too late. Human would open earlier just have a look at the chart.
-SL is too low with 34 Pips in thes heavy situations, will be hit too often. At leat 50 Pips.
-Trailing too late. A good profit turns still into terrible SL

I quit this version.

Hi there,

I just wanted to provide an update. I have kept running this EA on two accounts:
1. SynergyFX (Gold Account): running since Aug 27, 2015 -> total of 646 pips - for reference but I am running other EAs gain of 22% with DD of 31%
2. TickMill: running since July 27, 2015 -> total of 665 pips - for reference again: gained 29% with DD of 44%

This is certainly an EA with big moves (like today about 200 pips) and some scary losses, but so far it has served me well, when I look at it from a longer term perspective.

Cheers,

Byte

If you have a losing trade open for a week, you're not betting on a trend - you're betting on the market. You're betting on politicians. I do not think any EA has figured out politicians yet. So when you have an EA that takes a few weeks for the trades to enter profit, you're trading a bad EA. With enough drawdown, any strategy can be profitable... it just may take years for the Yen to recover! How much money do you want to tie up waiting for the yen to come back to 60?

I recommend that anyone who remembers the "swiss tsunami" get out of trading GBP. If you don't remember it, look at USDCHF Jan 15, 2015. The USDCHF bounced back in 6 weeks, but would your account survive those 6 weeks to make a few pips profit?

We are happy for your profits. The patience is a key using this robot. Unfortunately most of the people does not appreciate it, as it deserves. This robot is virtually impossible to fail if it is used with AutoMM<=0.5.

But FTD has performed well according to expectations since launch. But mentally hard to trade live since a years profit can depend on just a very few big winning baskets and in-between long dull dd periods that really requires faith in the strategy to continue stay in.

If u run FTD on a well funded account the only thing u have to do is to keep the risk at max 0.5%, so for example 0,3 Mm and with recovery on max risk 0.5 and simply let it work and wait. If ur accou t is a small one, u can rise the risk xonsiderably

Excellent results with FTD. This month alone has made me 1200 pips profit.  Results since EA launch in 2015 have been very good and the key is to run it at low risk so you can stand the the dd periods.

Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: corre971 on December 15, 2016, 05:22:20 PM
Great results with one basket closed yesterday and another one closed today  8)

I run it at risk 0.3 % with Recovery On and MMMAX 0.5%

I have backtested it from 2013 up to know and results are great. The match rate with trades triggered on real accounts is good. Of course match rate cannot be 100%: also on live trading i see some differences between my account, Thne Thinkforex ref account and the Forexgermany account. Also conside that when u run a BT, all trades will have the sl and tp values broadcasted by the vendor server at that moment, while probably these values were different some months ago.

My opinion is that EA is a very good investment and probably the most undervaluated EA on the market today

The trick is that the risk must be selected low: of course if you run a small account can push it more. Am considering to buy another license and to run it on a smaller account at higher risk with a 100% / Year goal  ;)

it turned out that I needed to restart MT4 in order for the activation to occur successfully - the support team did reply back to me after a couple of days.

somewhat related - the EA hasn't taken any trades since the end of January either on the vendor's demo account, my demo account (forward test) before changing to my real account, or running a backtest from Feb 1st 2017 up until today.

Can anyone else on the forum using this EA confirm that it's not taken a trade since January?

Yes, you can set it at .5% or less; lot size to .01.

For large accounts better not go beyond risk 0.5%

Personally using risk 0.3% with recovery ON and MMMAX 0.5%
Using low risk because running togheter with other EAs so to have a smoother equity growth
Atm, i think this is one the best volatility based EA (and with a very low price)

If the account is small you can use also 1% risk. Anyway better to not push too much the risk because if a basket is closed in loss the equity fall down consistently and the subsequent baskets (also with recovery ON) will have much lower size and this can prolongue thw stagnation period.

I think, if I take into account some of which I got so excited that I purchased multiple licenses, I probably have a few more than yours. :'(  ;D

But I will be the first to admit, that in terms of financial loss, their cost was nothing compared to the loss of USD$, which resulted from their failure. But this is the cost of the learning curve over the period since I started trading, way back in 2003.

I have used Ic markets extensively last year and i can say that is a very good broker, but probably Pepperstone is slightly better. But for varoius reasons now sticking with only 1 broker Uk based.

turning FTD off for a while -- we are almost at 1.20 so dont see alot of breakouts happening and more likely it gets stuck 1.1550 - 1.2050 so dont want to be buying at top and selling at lows.

when the market shows a little more then will turn back on .. it has made decent money over last few weeks with a few stops thrown in along the way.

FTD is a good EA and deserves more attention. It is also very cheap.  Important with conservative risk setting - it can be nerve wrecking to trade when it has a lot of open position in sharp market moves. (Or maybe better, just look at you account on a weekly basis).
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: donbon2 on August 04, 2017, 10:24:12 PM
yes I missed those trades as didn't expect the market to move just one way thought it would bounce back more.

I agree with what you guys are saying that it is a good EA .. you look at some of the others around now -- the trades are pretty similar -- this one trades less I admit but the cost of this one is a bargain... it looks for a strong move and if it comes it makes good money.

really happy with my EAS the last few weeks - and went conservative into NFP anyway will turn it on in a week or so.

I think to qualify an EA as being "fair, good or excellent", we need to look at the overall data:

I would call WFTD, a "Fair EA", overall but not exactly a "Good EA". For me, Reiner's EA is an "excellent EA" and Best Scalper is "Good Ea".

What I look for in a "good" EA, is consistent gains with low DD. True, if you compare prices, WTD might be less expensive but with the high DD, you will pay the piper over time. If you were to ask me this question, in late May, early June, about BS, even if the data pointed otherwise,  I would agree with you, the WFTD, would be a "Better EA", then BS.

Compare:

Fair EA, FTD:

Excellent EA, Reinerh's EA: http://www.myfxbook.com/members/fidelitas/axi-signal-coming-soon/2067022

Hello, donbon2, can you please explain the following:

#1, screen, is off the FTD, site.

#2, screen, is the actual myfxbook account showing a great ratio of Monthly: 6.19%
Drawdown: 3.80%.

#3, screen, is after one clicks (a) custom analysis (b) one clicks the "magic" tab (does not touch anything) and then clicks analyze. When this is done the ratio drops to Monthly: 6.16%
Drawdown: 48.29%?


Puzzling. The only explantion I could see is that after a point, the EA was traded without a magic number but that would not work.

Any ideas?

I don't know to be honest.

Yesterday I was looking at the Forex Diamond myfxbook and when I went to custom check that - gbp and yen work but eur doesnt -- not sure what is going on with that either ... funny thing is with all their account statements if I have the same EA running  - my real results match perfectly - or my trades get slightly better prices due to the brokers they use compared to my brokers   ... it is a mystery.

Hi,
here and there over the last pages I read that this bot would be so cheap. But I see about 200 bucks which is okayish for a working bot but Best Scalper and other products from fxautomater have about the same price. Why is especially this bot considered cheap or is there some coupon I have missed?

regards
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: donbon2 on August 10, 2017, 09:25:39 AM
in the members area it is $167 but when it launched it was like $129

they always offer good discounts to people who own their products.

most of the decent EAs now are $500 $1000 or $2000

so $167 is a bargain to be honest.

Best Scalper is a steal as well at $258 .. you can make that back in your first day/week or month depending on your balance.

Hello, Bumblebee.

I have had this happened to me some time ago with recovery on; that is why, despite the temptations from donbon2's successful use of it, I have kept RecoveryMode = False. It only happened once but I was spooked enough not to experiment further to find out a second time; perhaps with a blown account because in such instance trades take place so fast, it is almost impossible to intervene, even if you happen to be at your trade station at the time of the spike.

I must add that this might have nothing to do with the EA; during a time of market high volatility, I have seen stranger things happen: Not too long ago, all my EAs would turn on and off; I think I have posted this event on the Board to warn others.

Best of luck.

HumbleTrader

I use recovery on 0.3 maximum 0.6 .. my account is basically 50k... where you have fixed lots I I put 0 in there.

This is not an EA where I try to generate weekly money - more so insurance style when the market moves it tends to make money .. so it is a good hedge to my scalpers  WS Evo Forex Diamond and Vol Factor 2

Of course you can use it without recovery and it will be just fine, but I prefer a low AutoMM like 0.5 or less and recovery. If I have to put all my capital on a single EA, this will be my EA of choice with very conservative AutoMM value. Its biggest flaw is the low trading frequency, but this is the price of the high level of filtration a good breakout strategy needs.

What % risk is it using and would you consider it to be low, medium or high risk?

The GU trades are all at .03. The EU's vary between .02 & .03. That's why I asked about recovery.

I agree with you that the risk seems high. 9 or 10 trades of .02 or .03 on a 1.3k account is a little scary to me for the hours it trades. Most trades don't seem to be during Asian session when the market is more calm. And average trade length is 10.39 hours. It feels a little like its running the risk of an Asian scalper, but is using riskier time frames and duration.

The recommended risk is AutoMM 0.5 to 1. AutoMM up to 5 can be used for small accounts, if you want to try how lucky you are. For example I've started my real money account with AutoMM 2 and when the account grew I've reduced the risk to 0.5. In fact the system is quite good even used with maximum trades 2-5, but the real potential is unlocked with maximum trades 10 or even 15, because in this strong impulses  we have statistically best expectancy, so I prefer lower AutoMM and more trades.

I agree with you that the risk seems high. 9 or 10 trades of .02 or .03 on a 1.3k account is a little scary to me for the hours it trades. Most trades don't seem to be during Asian session when the market is more calm. And average trade length is 10.39 hours. It feels a little like its running the risk of an Asian scalper, but is using riskier time frames and duration.

The recommended risk is AutoMM 0.5 to 1. AutoMM up to 5 can be used for small accounts, if you want to try how lucky you are. For example I've started my real money account with AutoMM 2 and when the account grew I've reduced the risk to 0.5. In fact the system is quite good even used with maximum trades 2-5, but the real potential is unlocked with maximum trades 10 or even 15, because in this strong impulses  we have statistically best expectancy, so I prefer lower AutoMM and more trades.

Thanks for the update. I've been BT the EU default setting and the result is so great and steady for long term, maybe the best BT result from all your EA's I've ever done.
But I have problem here, I can't BT the EU HF and GU because the EA failed to download the csv file. What should I do?

How does recovery identify the trades that hit SL within the session? For example, a signal is triggered and some trades hit TP and few hit SL. In the next session when signal is triggered, how does it calculate the recovery size?

The EA identifies if there is a drawdown on a base of the last 50 trades. In a state of drawdown each new trade is multiplied by a factor of 1.04 (v4.0) until the DD is compensated.

How about the Risk Setting for each?

This is GBPUSD default and EURUSD HF settings.

It seems like risk setting is 3% GU and 2% EU and no recovery mode on the all pairs account

Max no of trades each pair seems = 10

That is quite high risk setting and would think about half that is more appropriate

The GU trades are all at .03. The EU's vary between .02 & .03. That's why I asked about recovery.

Here you go, this BT using default settings..  EU default setting BT (Jan 2011 - today) and EU HF setting BT (Jan 2012 - Jan 2016).
For GU and EU HF setting BT there's some problem when BT it. I'm not uploading GU because the result is to good to be true, I've done everything but still I can't get correct BT. Maybe because my price history for GU is bad, I'm not sure.

In my perspective this EA especially this new version is the best EA from FXAutomater so far. I have all their EA except forex combo system, those EAs fail and suffer big DD because the risk is bigger than the reward. Look at wally and Vola as example, they have great logic behind it but in the long run its still fail at least until today, just check how the R:R from those EAs.

This EA has good R:R and alot of filters and the most important is it has very low trading activity. Low trading activity is the most important key to get nice and steady profit, for example Vola and Diamond is aggressive EA but if you check their drawdown, really BIG and fail in 2017. Look at wally asia, low trading activity but gaining steady income and the drawdown is low even with high risk. But if you using wally Asia becareful of the R:R, and great performance from this EA is only because of GBPCAD. Check on wally asia myfxbook portofolio, if you use custom analysis and exclude GBPCAD the performance will only around 40% until today. If GBPCAD suffer DD (and it will) then the performance will be bad.

So this is what I learn from using EAs especially FXAutomater product, if you want long term profit you need to respect this EA (because of good R:R and low trading activity). Right now I'm using wally asia but next week I will using FTD until this EA dead or FXautomater invented better EA. I just wanna share my thoughts, guys. I know maybe you have different opinion, I hope it will help somebody to gain great result using the EA from this developer.

FXAutomater is the best EAs developer, no doubt about it. I use their EA since 2012 and gaining good profits until today. But nothing is perfect, you still need to do your home work to use the EA even from the best developer. Cheers.. ;)

Thanks for your work anglebird. BT on default look very good and is better than HF settings (profit/DD). You can achieve same profit with lower DD running default (by adjusting MM%) than with HF. So great to know HF is a no go. I also agree that this is a very good EA that is not gaining the attention it deserves.

I would also go with the default settings for EURUSD. On paper the HF settings are more profitable with higher trading activity, but the profit factor is lower and the DD is higher. Anyway some people just does not have the nerves to wait weeks sometimes for a signal and this settings are for them. By the way the backtests on the sales page are 100% correct and the difference between the brokers should be insignificant, so you can rely on them.

I will share a small secret here - the only difference between the default settings and the HF settings is the intensity of the breakout impulse on which the EA initiates a trade. All other filters and settings are identical. So, the HF settings are just more aggressive in the entries.

Hi Anglebird,

Hi Anglebird,

Hello nwboater, the best answer I can give is I'm looking for stability in gaining profits every single year. At darwinex the darwin competition is super tight, very talented traders, fund managers, EA developers compete there to attract investors to invest on them. This is really great for investors, because only the winners come up to the surface, whoever lose and can't make a profitable portofolio will sink. And the winner always provide profitable performance for me every year.

With using EA we don't know the secret sauce behind it, if the EA fail and only losing money we only will stop to run the EA, throw it into trash and buy another EA (this circle will always be like this, forever!). I'm tired to do that (buying EA again and again) because it's expensive and frustrating. For example Belkaglazer EA developer, Algotradesoft EA developer and YPY Amet EA developer already join darwinex and their darwins are in the Top 20 Darwin list right now, and you know what? I'm free to enjoy the profit from their darwin, I don't need to buy the EA (I can safe alot of money from this and still enjoy nice income from their EAs performance). About the fee, the fee is paid every 3 months if the darwin generate profit for you and the profit sharing is 80% for you and 20% for Darwin provider, if the darwin fail to make a profit you don't need to pay.

So what is the benefit for EA developers? For example in 2017 the best Darwin provider wich is Darwin THA can make $400.000 to his pocket from only profiding great and profitable trading performance to his investors, It's really good money. You can visit this link if you wanna check TOP 20 at the moment: https://www.darwinex.com/filter/TOP_INVESTORS

Darwinex is not a PAMM, it has safe risk management algorithm to protect your capital, and something like this never exist before. By the way, I have no intention to promoting darwinex here. I'm pure an investor there, I've been there for years now and the profit is really good, so why not to share it here and asking FXAutomater to join too.. :)

Hi Anglebird,

Thanks for the thorough explanation.

I think you have an interesting, and most likely highly profitable approach to invest in the top providers at Darwin. One of them is Thales which I previously had as a very profitable Signal. Unfortunately it's no longer available as a Signal and I think also not at Darwin because the AUM is getting so large.

You make some good arguments for going with Darwins as opposed to EA's. Would you consider starting a thread in the managed accounts section here? It would be interesting to get others involved in the discussion and compare notes and preferred vendors.

Thanks,
Rod

Hi rod, I'm sorry I can't start to make a thread here about Darwinex and Darwin because I think it's not effective (not many people here using darwinex). If you wanna discuss about darwin and darwin investing you can go to darwinex community, here's the link: https://community.darwinex.com/

My strategy is very simple, I just pick 10 best darwin (Diversification purpose) with low divergent and good profit from 20 TOP Darwin and invest equal amount of money to each darwin, the last step to do is let it run for a year whatever happened (you can call it "Set and Forget"). With this approach in 2 years I made 110% profit with DD only 6%.

Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on March 27, 2018, 11:39:32 AM
The EA uses recovery in drawdown, increasing the lot size by a factor of 1.04 or 1.05 for each new trade, until the drawdown is not fully compensated. The idea is, when it catches a good strong movement it happens with many trades with increased lot size, which in a good day brings huge profit. Of course, it can be used successfully without recovery, but the recovery just works great for this type of impulse following systems.

thanks very much wally,

but i am afraid trades dont match your forward demo account. it trades open bar i assume as most all your bots do, so i cant figure out why trades dont match since they should match really close.

for example, feb 16 this year = the demo i refered to had a sequence of losses, backtest shows only 1 loss.

but the demo had quite a number of wins also on feb 16 which the backtest has none, zero zilch.

that does not make sense to me.  why is there such a huge difference ??

I was sure you will ask this :) - Because the final settings of the robot are allays subject of improvement, until it is released. I am doing this to the last possible moment, so even my colleagues are annoyed. You can be 100% sure the final settings are the best from my point of view.

ah ok, so now going forward the trades will match.

meaning on this account

https://www.myfxbook.com/members/fxtrenddetector/forex-trend-detector-eurusd-gbpusd/2466783

you did not trade the final version yet.

but from now on you are and they should match a corresponding backtest down the road.

the pip count of the forward account sure is impressive, your final version is not even close to those results but i assume that this change in the logic was needed to make it long term more stable.

 
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on March 27, 2018, 08:29:12 PM
All your assumptions are correct. If I find a time I will try to show you the difference in the backtest performance between the working and the final version. The profit of the final version is similar but the profit factor is higher.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: reinerh on March 27, 2018, 09:51:50 PM
no worries wally.

i was just stumped that trades did not match so far. whatever settings you ran on your forward account sure must have been optimized for the last year or whatever timeframe. that account sure started with a bang = huge gains.

so now with the final version it will be quite a bit less profitable but longer term more stable.

could you maybe post the set files that you are using to run on the account below.

no worries wally.

i was just stumped that trades did not match so far. whatever settings you ran on your forward account sure must have been optimized for the last year or whatever timeframe. that account sure started with a bang = huge gains.

so now with the final version it will be quite a bit less profitable but longer term more stable.

could you maybe post the set files that you are using to run on the account below.

It must be all default settings except the MM.

Hello, Wallstreet.

I don't like trades being open for a long time. Q:If I were to reduce the number of trades from 10 to 5, would increasing or doubling the risk, give me somewhere near the default results?

Hi Humble Trader,

The best way to see the difference is to perform some backtests with 5 and 10 trades. I almost released the official version with 5 trades only, but then I've changed my mind, because the system performs best when it is allowed to catch the impulse with many trades. But of course - you can use even 2 or 1 trade, but then you should probably increase the volume accordingly.

I have just bought this EA because I want try it and I like fxautomater wsasia, bfs and I also have Forex Diamond (even at this moment i don't use it, in the past gave me only losses but I made the newbie mistake of using too high MM). By the way, I have the suspect that big money makers have understood the logic under this breakout strategies. In the past this eas worked better, now the market tends to go on a direction and turn back, ecc. What do you think about this?
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on April 05, 2018, 12:52:43 PM
It is not about the logic - the market is changing. As well it has its choppy and trending periods. This strong impulse dependency will always work, because the strong enough impulse means the smart money are jumping in. Of course you will always need to withstand some bad periods of false breakouts. I've tried to make the balance between secure entry and high enough trading activity. I can make the system much more reliable, but this will cut significantly the trading activity and the overall profit - so you must trade one for another and you have to accept some bad signals in order to not miss many of the good signals.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: stefanosb on April 05, 2018, 01:04:14 PM
Ok FxAutomater, thank you for your answer. I start with 1% MM and 15 max trades on EUR/USD and GBP/USD, HF OFF.

If there is a signal from the systems logic it has some positive mathematical expectancy, which of course does not mean 100% certainty. I do not see any drama in this.

Depending on the strength of the move, it can usually cause one, two and three continuous drops but as time goes on, the possibility diminishes. I used to give up on such stalls only to discover an additional drop, that is why I am letting the EA do its thing from now on.

Thank you. Things now make sense. I only recently started using FTD and it was with the new version 4.0 that has both pairs (EU & GU). Also the manual I have been using shows both pairs & HFT.

I didn't realize that the previous version only had one pair and that I was using the most recent version.

Also since I started with V 4.0 that is probably why I didn't get the email announcing it.

So everything is just fine! :)

I am somewhat confused about all this chatter; are we talking about FTD and WS's account (See attached)?

If we are, I don't seem to understand my respectful member's remarks about this account being "flat" and his discarding of its gains. As far as I can see, this account has gains an ABS of 14.1% this year ( 4 months) with a max DD of 12.5 % DD. I would think that is quite a respectable return for an EA and nothing to qualm about.
Perhaps I am mistaken and you are talking about some other haphazard account. ;)

I think we need to start being bit more careful about these negative posts in every thread -- otherwise no-one will bother to post anything and it will be just a waste of time.

Also how many authors of EAs are here posting almost daily now ?  1  Wall Street

if you got a legitimate question / issue / thought ... you get an answer ... but there is no reason to just go full 100% negative - that simply isn't fair to anyone.

You think all of these EAs we are currently talking about are no good - ok fair enough - what is your suggestion that is doing better ? I would love to hear it.

It shows the same losing pattern since last year's August. Had the recovery and the auto lot been used, the loss percentage would have been the same too - but it's already repelling enough.

It makes no sense to me to run an EA which worked well in the distant past but has been in the negative over the past whole year. All it's telling me is that the bot's strategy has clearly become obsolete and the market has yet again changed too much for it to survive. The vendor's line of argument "look, it was very profitable some years ago" is hardly relevant - we can't travel back in time and what's gone is gone.

Hi Wallstreetforex.com,

Please be certain that there are many of us here that appreciate your products. Many, many more than the one extremely negative person here that seems to want to trash everything.

We also really appreciate your efforts and time on this Forum. I feel very fortunate to have a vendor of your caliber regularly posting here.

It's too bad this Forum doesn't have the feature that would allow you to 'Ignore' posts from a member.

So I really hope that one 'bad apple' does not damage your Forum relationship and desire to assist us here.

Thanks again for everything you do for us!

Cheers,
Rod

Hi Wallstreetforex.com,

Please be certain that there are many of us here that appreciate your products. Many, many more than the one extremely negative person here that seems to want to trash everything.

We also really appreciate your efforts and time on this Forum. I feel very fortunate to have a vendor of your caliber regularly posting here.
.....................

Cheers,
Rod

Well said Rod,

after all the years of trading eas we saw vendors come and go. Wallstreet vendor is for sure one of those who cares about their clients. They are honest and supportive. Never had any problems so far. The products are highly developed and its safe to put them on a real account. The fact that strategys put into eas fail over time is part of the forex game.
Some vendors run away with your money and others are still here to support.
Thats all what counts for me.

best regards
Mark

I fully agree. I am very happy this vendor sticks around and is working to improve the products. We are all struggling to make money off of FOREX and I am sure it is way more tricky to make a product work if a lot of people are using it. I wish I knew how to build my very own EA but until I get there, I will happily try to get the best out of products like this.

Also, I would like to remind everyone that periods like this have been around for break out strategies also in the past. They just look much easier to deal with in the backtests, when you see the later upmoves again ... Just a thought, knowing that there are people on this board that are way more successful than I am.

Last weeks FTD is performing badly. Does it make sense to reduce the max. number of trades for now?
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: stefanosb on May 11, 2018, 12:26:09 PM
It didn't so many trades. I prefer low mm (0.5) and recovery on (max5). 10 trades max.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: donbon2 on May 17, 2018, 01:49:25 PM
FTD is the most controversial of the EAs I run -- I dislike that I can lose 8-10% of the account on bad days -- but it also really delivers when the market breaks out a trend .... so of all the EAs I allocate it the smallest amount of money to trade with and I use MM 0.5 - 2

conservative with this is how I use it.

Post by: alstoner on June 14, 2018, 08:08:40 PM
Just when all hope seemed lost and every system was failing, FTD comes in for the win! About 20 closed trades all around the 45 pip mark and with another 120pip floating. Today is a good day :)

Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: donbon2 on June 15, 2018, 01:57:07 AM
I own it - great night .... but it isnt my favorite EA - because we just dont see those type of moves very often and the stops in between are irritating ... anyway well done and I hope sales pick up a little on it.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on June 15, 2018, 08:26:55 AM
I am just curious - which is your favorite EA?
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: donbon2 on June 15, 2018, 12:25:13 PM
answered in the other thread

but martingale trend is the best performance I have seen from any EA ever.

my favorite EA before that was BS -- now I recommend people to buy your VF2 EA -- I think that shows to be best suited to the market right now.

Wallstreet im curious as to what YOUR favorite EAs are that you have? Which ones do you trade your most money with?

that is probably like asking to pick a favorit child. But hopefully you have one that stands out over the others.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on June 17, 2018, 03:03:28 PM

Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector

And why? Because it is not the one with the highest monthly return.
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: wallstreet.forex.robot on June 18, 2018, 01:02:48 PM
It has the highest profit factor with the most reasonable SL. It has the highest average pips per trade profit, plus it is not broker dependent and it can make 1000 pips and more in a good day.

hi fxautomater,

Could you please explain how this bot could trade XAGUSD in the official account?
This pair is even not in the sales page.
Did you intentionally test this pair on the official account and do you recommend to trade XAGUSD using trend detector EA?

Thanks.

If you refer the Forex Gold Investor EA, in fact it is recovering pretty well in the last two months.

guys,

someone know if the EA lost the control of the trade when the terminal mt4 restart?

i accidentally logoff from my server today and many trades are still open... i restart immediately the mt4 but DO NOT SEE the arrow dot of the buy open trade... TREND DETECTOR continue to manage these open trades or lose the control??? better to close all manually???

thanks to all

GBP
https://www.myfxbook.com/members/fxtrenddetector/forex-trend-detector-gbpusd/2254434

EURO is go bad... really very numerous loss sequence (same on my REAL account)

seems that the good period is lost... the actual market is bad for this strategy... BUT PROBABLY the EA need more (and better) optimization for catch more good trade. i see many days WITHOUT open trade, and i am with HF setting...

at the moment i am very disappointed from this EA (honestly also the other EA are disappoint me)

Hello, Nick3232.

We haven't heard from WS for a long  time; I wonder what his group is up to and developing?

That "WINWIN CONTINUATION", you are running, is that a manual or automated system and what is the leverage you are using?

Regards,
HumbleTrader
Title: Re: Forex Trend Detector
Post by: nick3232 on February 22, 2019, 03:21:09 PM
winwin continuation is automated, been running it successfully since the last 3 years ,,at icm for 2 years ,finpro for 6 months and coinexx (was finpro ) since dec 24th or so ,did not keep track of ic market but did for the last 2 brokers,,

this system average a 40 to 50% yearly profit,,

includes soft martingales at very low risk and 2 scalping strategies, mean reversions ,those systems would be perceived as dangerous for conservatives traders  but not by me,need to have win each months (need to wd $$ )so eliminated losing months ,average 3 to 5 % monthly

winwin coninuation cause coinexx migrated my vps and mt4 from turnkeyfx sever to coinexx mt4 sever ,so had to start over again my winwin fxbook acc thus WINWIN continuation came up


you may find it here too

So I gather this is your own EA (developed) and not a commercially available EA; still what leverage are you using in this widget?

Thank you, Nick3232.

Understood. I might have missed it but can you ask Donbon2 to set up a separate thread or you can use, "Re: Eas I am actually using", where you discuss these strategies and EA's, I am sure all of us in the group will be keen in learning more.

Hello cupidsux.

I doubt if Donbon2, will agree to allowing you to join. This forum is for members who have a record of contributing serious discussion on EA development over time.  I would suggest you make an effort to contribute and give us some background information about your knowledge in this subject area.

I will however allow Donbon2,  to have the final say.

so if you can share a bit more then there would be no issue .the private area also provides things that you cannot share in a public environment - more details more information as well as development of hopefully our own EAs
