Please welcome HansTrend v2 to the forum. Hans is well known in fx so you may have heard of him previously.

I'll leave him to introduce his new service.... as always, if you have traded with him or have any feedback or questions, please leave it in the topic.

Thanks Donna for introducing me :)



Hi all !

I'm Hans Bowles, you might heard of me from MT4 Stats (the predecessor of MyFXBook) or from signals/mams known as GoldStar and HansTrend. In the forex industry for 10+ years now.

I'm a good friend of Donna herself and I'm here to discuss my strategy HansTrend.

I'm currently testing the latest BETA versions of HansTrend v2-beta on 8 different brokers, different leverages (including the new leverage limit of 1:30 set by ESMA as well as for US-citizens 1:50 at Oanda) and different VPS providers.

Thank you all for helping me with this test!
NOTE: No additional positions are required anymore, sorry.

Significant changes between HansTrend v1 and v2:
Risk/Multiplier Guide

x1 = 0.01 per $400 <-- recommended for long-term investments (take loss = 10%)
x2 = 0.01 per $200 <-- beta test (see www.hanstrend.com (http://www.hanstrend.com)) (take loss = 20%)
x4 = 0.01 per $100 <-- high risk  (take loss = 40%)

My AIM:
My AIM with HansTrend-V2 is and has also been before to be the best "LONGTERM" and "STABLE" and "CONSISTENT" System out there which is suitable not only for people with a 100k budget, but also for the ones who want to start with only $400 or less.

What I will charge:
I'm not thinking about this at all to be honest with you. First let's do some proper beta testing first.

SOME INTERESTING NOTES AND FACTS:

Thanks for reading, cheers!

PS. This image below illustrates that if I had continued with HansTrend v1.1, I would be in profit again. I see this as a success, as developing an EA making profit or breakeven over a period of 6+ years is more difficult than an EA making only losses or blowing up. So no wonder I want to look at it again myself as well, to improve the original EA and specifically, not the initial entries, because those I believe are great, but the exits are not optimal, so I'm working on that now with the help of great beta testers! :)

Hi Hans,

Welcome to DonnaForex. I'm very glad to find that you are making this great Forum your online home.

I am one of the Beta Testers for HansTrend 2 which is the first time I have ever done anything like this. My experience with Hans during the process has been exemplary. He has treated me with respect and concern and I find him to be a real straight shooter.

Really looking forward to the restart of the Beta testing and to find out how well the changes you are making will work out.

Cheers,
Rod

UPDATE 22SEP2018

Currently working on HANSTREND V2 BETA 2 for a few weeks already actually.

Busy with different exit strategies, to see which one works best. I have decided to go either for a single pair hedge exit or a form of martingale (not a real one, just add +0.01 for additional orders). As both exit have potential to get in huge DD quickly, I'm forced to live with a max DD of 10% which will automatically close all open trades instead of using individual SL settings for each order.

That being said, I want to welcome all the helpful BETA Testers also on DonnaForex. Some are already a member on DonnaForex, others aren't.
Please welcome: Oportunis, Westie, Ktyong, Fabx, Kappuhh and Nwboater

Some results I have (using the hedge exit method, do look promising, but are not finished yet) and are able to not only keep profit on track, but even reduces the drawdown. As an example I'm showing a simple backtest (please be aware that one should NEVER trust a scalping EA backtest, as the distances are so small, that backtests become very unreliable, and since my EA is not a scalper, it is maybe not perfect, but "good enough" for simple analyzing purposes.

First I recoded HansTrend V1.1 from MT4 to MT5, as I believe it is much more stable, uses all my cores, even can use agents for backtesting and the coding is cleaner, see below:

(https://donnaforex.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hanstrend.com%2Fmt4-vs-mt5.jpg&hash=5e6de8b17407ef9c68ae8cebd71128a2)

and after that, I coded the hedge exit (single pair, no idea how this will affect people in the US), and the following comparison can be shown between HansTrend v1 on the right and the "better" one with hedge exit on the left. Note the equity/balance curve, but also the D between the two.

(https://donnaforex.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hanstrend.com%2Fhedge-boom.jpg&hash=5dea1b24aa60780c0eccc3e901a9a979)

So that it for now. I'm using the weekend to look further into both exit methods but obviously many things need to be coded first.

Have a good weekend all!

- Hans

PS. It says HansTrend v4, but that is actually an internal version for myself, for you guys it would be HansTrend V2 B(eta) 2 :)

Any idea by the way, if there is a way to auto-shrink (and make popup versions) of my images? They are so width now haha. Shrinking myself I can't do, as it would become unreadable. Thanks in advance :)

note: i found this? --> "Features and Options under Layout, you can force a max size of images. So images will automatically be reduced and become clickable"
meanwhile I am using this for now, [img width=1000], and seems to be clickable

Hi to all, I'm also a beta tester. I've been a member here for a while, so continuing beta testing here is a good decision.

Hopefully we get some nice results as we all are loking for a stable and profitable system with low DD.

UPDATE 22SEP2018 (2)

Currently testing HansTrend v2 Beta2 after having implemented the "Counter Trade Hedge Exit Strategy" I actually wanted to see what it does with the exit.

Ofcourse you could have seen, that when I used this form of an exit, the results suddenly look VERY promising.
However, it still contained a BUG which I worked on today.
The BUG was that it only placed 1 counter hedge trade.

for example:

Similar Strategy has been described by many others, although not as an exit strategy specifically, but as a random EA tradingbot.
See this example PDF to understand the working of it:
http://www.hanstrend.com/hedginglotstrategy.pdf (http://www.hanstrend.com/hedginglotstrategy.pdf) (not by me, and just as example)

To my big surprise (but then again, also not that big) it becomes a crazy rocket, executing orders all over the place ending up with HUGE lotsizes ending with a stop out, margin calls, etc.

Let me show you this here in this image, so you know what I mean:

(https://donnaforex.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hanstrend.com%2Fcrazy.jpg&hash=c15a6870745961daa8a93792c40c7964)

Since I do not plan to make crazy aggressive EA's - I leave that to other people - I will cancel on this, however, because of the bug (an accidental mistake) I did find out, that by using this exit, it basically means, I either have 50% (theoretically) chance of turning the initial trade into profit and 50% of loss (due SL) <--- previous version. Into ---> 50% loss chgance, which can be recovered by another 50% chance. This basically means I get 2 chances without risking more than needed, as the single hedge order in different direction with a doubled lotsize on the same single pair, has it's own SL as well.

So it is very likely that I go for this approach, although more I have to test later, which is just dedicated to where I should start the hedged trade stop order.

So far, this is what I already have, and I hope I'm able to make it even better.

UPDATE 24SEP2018

Nearly equal results between the 2 exit strategies I'm testing, but the DD differences are huge imo, hence it will become a single hedge exit
Illustrated attachement shows the differences. Similar curves, just a 3 time higher DD. Keeping in mind that I will cut off all open order with a loss at 10% DD, the hedge is therefore better.

Now I'm off to spend more days working on the optimisation of the hedge exit.

UPDATE 29SEP2018

I'm done with tweaking, and the first version for the upcoming BETA test of the pair EURUSD is done.

The test itself, including a PDF report as well for the stat nerds has been made available at www.hanstrend.com/version4/eurusd

Other pairs such as AUDUSD, XAUUSD, USDJPY are currently being tested and will be uploaded there as well very soon.

below is a BAD SCENARIO explanation.

UPDATE 30SEP2018

AUDUSD test done, see: www.hanstrend.com/version4/audusd

Please note that the not only the DD is low, but also the gain. But that is how is personally prefer to trade, and eventually also all pairs profit/month need to be summed up.

* I can't wait to merge them all together, and see how it will look overall when trading several pairs at the same time.

UPDATE 6OCT2018

So far this is what we have for this year, and rolling back also 2016 and 2017, which is a significant improvement of HansTrend v1.

Even though all detailed reports are able to be viewed at www.hanstrend.com/version4/ , below the first 4 pairs for easy viewing in 1 combined chart for 2016/2017/2018.

Please note that each pair was tested with each $1000, it means what you see below is basically a combined backtest of 4 pairs, with a total of $4000, which means the draw downs will therefore be heavily reduced.
 
(https://donnaforex.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hanstrend.com%2Fversion4%2Fcombined.jpg&hash=a7b0e2340d92e4c6a06eb1cd925a3dbd)
 
At the bottom, I even did a merged (back to $1000) of all 4 pairs, and the DD looks great compared the the profit!


TODO:

I will now test a few more pairs, see which one is negatively correlated in order to reduce total drawdown when pair X goes in loss, Pair Y can make profit the other way. Currently looking for 2 or 3 Pair Y's :)

Cheers,
Hans

Ditto that. And yes it can be a lonely live. But you have 4 beta testers I think so that should help. What often frustrates me is that we do all this lovely work on back tests (or do your results include forward tests?) and analysis to develop a strategy and then it all implodes when we go forward testing. Following with interest and hoping for your success.

Thanks Donna, when you look at  https://www.myfxbook.com/members/hansbowles/hanstrend-part-i/1201302 , you will see I have been able to manage this before, and I'm positive I'm able to make an even better version :)

Thanks Diyforexskills, I agree that solely backtesting is not good enough. However, it is based on HansTrend v1, so all entries are perfect already, I'm just improving the exit strategy, and with TP/SL settings of dozens of pips distance, a backtest can be pretty accurate. It would be different when an EA is a scalper trading M1 or even on ticks... that would be impossible.

Obviously, on top of a backtest, and support of few years of forward testing, it still needs to be forward tested again, by myself, or even better with the help of Beta Testers, so the differences can be seen between the accounts in terms of performance as well.

Thanks for your support :D

Hi Rod,

Thanks!! I hope I will be able to run it for 2 weeks myself starting next week, to make sure bugs (if any) are out. Meaning I want each of the 4 or 5 pairs to trade at least 1 loss. And after that start the beta testing. Sorry for any delays, I not want to launch anything if I'm not 100% sure.
But I have been working very hard on it the past few weeks.

Yea, lonely, because I not know if and how many people read the replies/comments. It doesn't say the amount of "likes"  on each individual post of mine, nor does it show the amount of views. I'm not sure if that is something Donna can implement? I'm sure there are tons of forum extensions available? :)
Have a good weekend Rod!

HansTrend v1, was traded live from the beginning of 2012 to the end of 2015. After that I stopped a few years as I wasn't happy with the results, although because of many people sending me mails, I had decided to look into it, to see why I lost 15% (after making well above 100+%). I have shown on ForexSignals as well as in my opening post, that if I had continued, it would have recovered very well. All of this is a reason for me to continue, and soon start a beta test.

Regarding any FUTURE forward tests, I will put a link to all them here (to all verified accounts on MyFxbook) of MASTER Beta2 account, as well as all individual Beta tests account. On top of that, I will make a table and publish this on hanstrend.com as soon as the 2nd beta test will start.

Transparency and being open about everything, is very important for me, and it is one of the things what followers like about me. I'm sure people here can back me up on that :)

*note: Beta tests will be done on several brokers, to make sure myfxbook statement manipulation (or by brokers) is impossible. I'm not one of those kind of developers. I know you haven't said that, but I still like to point this out, for anyone with doubts :)

So yes, expect myfxbook links as soon as the beta test will start  8)

UPDATE 8OCT2018

I Decided to add 1 more major pair USDCHF, so it's more diversified and thus more safe (as IMO any portfolio should be, and therefore also a single EA with several different pairs).
This brings the total amount of pairs to trade with HansTrend V2 BETA 2, to 5 pairs.

I've set up a pre-beta-test account at IC Markets of $200 USD, and I will start trading today Monday Oct 8th 2018.
The pre-test will take approx 2 weeks, as I like to see each of the 5 pairs get a loss, before starting the real 3-months Beta test #2.

MyFxBook link (verified) of the 2 week pre-test will be posted here tomorrow.

Hans

Hans are you still looking for beta testers? Or has that train already left the station?

I have a few beta-testers already, and I will contact them soon.
At least 1 beta-tester place is open, and maybe more, but I will put an update regarding beta tester positions here later on :)

Nice work Hans!  I have been quietly following your thread with great interest.  I can't wait to watch the forward test of v2 as it progresses.  It's exciting to see great developments from non-commercial and trustworthy people.

hey Hans. If you are still looking for beta testers - i am keen to contribute. I havent had much to do with MQL in the last 5years but was actively using the language prior to that so I maybe of some use i can dust up my programming skills

Yes, I would as well, since i can see you really are not requiring a very large amount to beta test. I like the communal and community / team approach you are taking with it Hans.

Hi hans, good the see the progress but would be better to see how this EA hedge kicks in to keep DD lowest.

For additional beta tester, perhaps you can open to those who willing to test on a broker which not the list already. More brokers tested is better endorsement in my opinion.

thats a good idea IFFT. I can easily test 3 different sources at one of my brokers. And I have accounts at MOST brokers (even if not used in a while). So if there is any specific brokers or just different ones you would like to test, I will be happy to help. But it sounds like you probably have enough testers by the sound of it.

Awesome, found out where Hans has been hanging out !

He did Skype me, but I didn't check it for 3 weeks - Lol :)

I was a Beta Tester on V2 - Beta 1 (Westie), but decided to opt out of the next Beta.

In case you have read the thread on the other forum, and are concerned Hans is a scammer / whatever - my experience is Hans as as he sounds - he wants to make all of us rich (and himself in doing so !).

Hans paid for my VPS and even spent a day helping me get set up. After the Beta ended in a loss he even offered to re-inburse me !

I'm sure he has no lack of offers for further Beta testers, but if you were on the fence, think about it.

Can't wait for the next one to start, even though I'm not in it - I'm looking forward to following along.

Good Luck everyone !

ah... Hans is definitely no scammer, i can vouch for him too (and there's very few people i CAN vouch for in this game, especially on this kind of level). I have known him for over 10 years and spent a lot of time getting to know him personally online over the years as well as professionally. He is a great, genuine guy who cares a lot about what he does.

Now, that's not to say he has a holy grail here  ::) 8) so no pressure or anything, Hans  ;D ;D ;D

Very interesting, will you also consider to open a MAM after the stable release for HansTrend?

UPDATE 18OCT2018

Unfortunately we have had no trades this week so far after the 2 USDJPY orders.
It simply did not have good opportunities to open trades.
I hope tomorrow and next week the market will be nice :)

Not yet, First I will be doing this current pre test, and then I will contact all previous beta testers first :)

Yes, I would as well, since i can see you really are not requiring a very large amount to beta test. I like the communal and community / team approach you are taking with it Hans.

Same as above ;)
And thank you, yes... for many reasons I wasn't really able to do it anymore like this on ForexSignals, hence I moved here.

I agree completely, hence all beta testers will trade on a different broker with a different leverage (+ different VPS).

Thank you Westie for your kind words, I was indeed wondering if you were able to find me here, as I knew you know about DonnaForex Forum :)

Thanks DOnna, yeah.. I have no idea if I'm currently developing and testing a future holy grail, but I strongly believe that when doing my best will surely increase my chances :) Futhermore I always think they do exist, and hopefully this one will rock :)

Very interesting, will you also consider to open a MAM after the stable release for HansTrend?

That depends on the results of the current pre-test I'm doing, as well as the Beta test which will hopefully can start end of this month (or November 2018). After that, and that will be early 2019, if everything looks good. I most likely release it as a MAM, as EA's and Signal Copiers are quite a pain. Besides I not really feel comfortable if people pay me fees if they didn't make profit.. so a MAM is most ideal for both investors as well as for my karma :)

With respect to a PAM, another thing to look at would be a Darwin (Darwinex).

The net result is supposed to be similar to a PAM (the Darwin provider gets paid 20% of any profits I think) except without the hassle of signing Limited Power of Attorney etc.

The other advantage for a subscriber being they can sub / unsub at any point with a click of a button.

Not had any success using it myself, but it may be worth looking into.

Something like that sounds better to me.   I've been in a number of different MAM's and PAM's.  I will NOT be doing that again.

Hi Hans,

I'm wondering if you are going to be starting the Beta Test soon as you had planned? Unfortunately there have only been 3 trades in the Alpha test so not a lot to go by there. They have been winners though! :)

Cheers,
Rod

UPDATE 2NOV2018

Unfortunately I had to just close 2x EURUSD with loss, even though they would have become winners if there wouldn't be any DOSS attacks at my VPS @ CNS NY DC.
Furthermore, because the Terminal wasn't open, it missed several good opportunities since Oct 24th. This said, it went up again after a few minutes and unfortunately I did not have set up auto restart options for the beta test on MT5 Terminal so this is also my own mistake, and I was gone for over a week without remote accessibility for this particular VPS.

Right now I have just fixed everything in case of any restart/reboot/error on MT5 as well as the Windows platform as well, as I prefer to have this run 100% solely automatically without ANY manual interference like a TRUE robot.

Looking forward to new trade opportunities .

Hans

It should have performed like this (I just did a backtest of that period)
