Why does DaxBot appear on mql5 but with the writing: "The author has been deprived of the right to sell products"?

Hi DonnaF,
We released good trading Expert Advisor DaxBot.eu
DaxBot.eu Trades only 1 time a day, but accurate with good win rate, 60%+
Please check our performance and website.

FREE MT4 DEMO
Please find attached Fully Working DEMO Version of DAXBOT.eu.

This DEMO works on any Mt4 DEMO account until 31/03/2020. It will backtest etc but not run on a live account.
Please place EA in your MT4>Experts Folder and restart MT4.

We suggest to use same broker as us, admiral markets PRIME MT4>>>>: www.admiral markets.com

Use any broker with DAX but do not expect identical results as ours as feed/spread makes difference to signal generation. Admiral PRIME offer 0.2 spread in DE30. Please do not start complain about different results if you decide to use various brokers. Different brokers have different feeds, thats the way it is. A 1.0 spread is 5% of the target, against a 0.2 spread is 1% of target, this has significant impact to broker house margin, it will increase SL and increase missed TP.

Please run on DAX30 Instrument on Chart 5 min. It will detect if you broker calls it DE30, DAX, DAX30, GER30. not matter.

It is preset to 1000 to 1800 (GMT+2), please change if you broker is different than GMT+2
The trading window should begin when DE30 opens at 9am CET. (8am GMT)

Risk:For +25% a month use 2.0 lot per 1000 balance. (2 a point / 40 per win)
For +50% month use 4.0 lot per 1000 balance.

It trades only 1 time a day. Lot size will X2 after loss and reset after win, only 2 layers of risk.

Take profit and loss set to 2000, this is 20 Dax points.
If you use other brokers, just make sure lot size is correct as some use contract sizes, some use lot sizes etc.

Live licence options are 99 month, 499 6 months, or managed account with 25% fee. (no subscription needed)

Its totally hands free, not need to turn off on holidays or news.

Thank you.

Why does DaxBot appear on mql5 but with the writing: "The author has been deprived of the right to sell products"?

Hi LC,
Originally we planned to put EA in MQL store and had uploaded it, but we withdrew because
1. We had to provide an open EA with no expiry
2. It hard to protect IP when its uploaded open source like that
3. We then found illegal vendors selling MQL5 stuff at 10% of cost, so this indicated it not a secure environment.
4. MQL5 charge 20% on sales, we can pass this saving onto client by direct sales.

So, we mentioned it in MQL forum that we left and they said we spammed the forum. Not particularly worried as they don't treat vendors very well and other vendors seem to be able to talk about their products with out issues.
Hope that explains it someway.
Thats the full story.

WOW those double-ups after losses can be costly - with 3*7% losers in a row...BUT nice overall results to date.

To give the bot broader appeal I would add more brokers - traders are VERY loyal to their own broker and reluctant to change -, especially outside their regulated country.

The BT shows declining % returns and just one year - any reason for this? 5 years would be more realistic.

One to watch and wait for another 6 months or so IMO.

Your website 'info pack / free demo ' link isn't working   - please post a working link here.

Where is the payment link?

Your website format/style has a very cluttered and 'user-unfriendly' feel - suggestion - you use larger font and more pages, with less text and more graphics per page - graphics are much more powerful than paragraphs of text. Dark grey font is very difficult to read against a black background.

Good luck!

Hi Peter,
Yes, but max sequence is 4 loss, this happened in Dec but still good end of month profit.
User can set risk to less should they wish.
Bot work in any broker, we suggest admiral but will run anywhere.

Backtest returns look like declining % because account grows but lot size is same. IF you click on PROFIT, you can see its stable each month for producing $$$. (attached image). Longer backtest we can appreciate would be more comprehensive but setting are very good now for the "here and now", if we only have to optimize each 12-18 months then we consider that a success, Range is crucial for robot so if volatility drops substantially need to move to smaller TP/SL but this is only an "if"

We tested our free info pack form, seems to work ok? not sure what you mean there.
We attached a demo of the bot here, still need donna to allow it past moderation.

We offer subscription based, when client want to join, invoice from paypal is emailed to client.
New website coming end of month, we appreciate it is a cluttered wardrobe currently.

Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated and we hope this is good answers for you,
Matts.

Hi did that -27 pips today include any slippage as I got -20 on IC markets demo? Shame as it eventually came back to the TP...
Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: Daxbot on January 20, 2020, 09:26:43 PM
hi,
yes stop was @ -20, slippage part of DE30 trading,
But positive slippage happens regularly also
IF win rate is >60% then it benefits over long run.
7 pips slippage is not typical.
Yeah was a pretty big spike down today before reversing back. Just one day of many :)

-20 pips on ic markets demo - strange entry today - after 100 pip fall it went for another short right at the low.....rather than, say, a pullback. December had 7 losses ( Jan has 'just' 5 including today) and finished16% up. The system appears to be able to produce a string of 5-6 winners so let's see how it plays out...

Hi, my first initial observation is that it is writing a messge to the experts log EVERY TICK, noting that it is not time to trade yet.  That's a little wasteful, no?

I likely won't care if it pulls in big demo dollars with my 20 lot trade setting, doubling to 40 lots gamble following a loss :)

Trying to trade such lot sizes on a live account would likely not work... 
Just to be sure on the comment re lot sizing - you are recommending 2 lots per $1k (and not $10k) account size?

Thanks for posting the demo EA.

Yes, that 10/15 from in January,
However, its all about sequence and how the WLLWW comes, but EA can demonstrate profit month even after a LLLL sequence. Even a month that win 50% can be a 220 pip gain if sequence run WLWLWL etc as bot will net 20 pips every other day.

Watch margin in pepperstone as FCA max is 30:1, margin requirement will be high for 40 lots there, you might not have enough margin, not sure as we use comfortable ASIC broker, don't have to worry about margin requirement with them.

1 DE30 lot on icmarkets = 1 when trading GBP account if that helps :) The SL/TP is 20 pips+ slippage so just adjust the risk accordingly. I agree doubling up after losses is risky especially when it gets to 7%+ risk per trade but there is no reason why you can't trade at 10% recommended risk.

haha unless he's a 16-year-old kid relying on his parents pocket money or someone with a 10K overdraft  - the thing is you never know and that's the risk you take. 2 months is way too short to really judge - even 2-year-old systems can mysteriously stop working. That's the risk you take if you trade real money :)

Yes, my demo is 1:500 leverage.  Thanks both for the clarification on lots on DAX.

No trade today.

What is the idea behind limiting to 1 trade per day (though I see you can change that in settings) - is that optimal to get in and out once?

The EA would be improved by removing the excessive logging and add the key info to the display instead - broker time (market watch), start trade window, end trade window and whether trading.

Of course, the really important thing is that it is profitable  and reliable :)

Hi,
Reinher is correct, its local file only, very small.
We agreed it more nuisance than anything.
In V2 it will be removed along with very nice user dashboard.
We wanted to get people at least trying EA now, code is perfectly fine, just needs some cosmetics on front end.

hi guys,
Well end of week, poor start but 3 winners to finish leaving sequence of LLWWW this week.

Biggest slippage we seen on DAX today nearly 20points, huge stock order creating a momumental long spike:
https://www.myfxbook.com/members/DaxBot/daxbot-admiralprime/3673605

Slippage Swings both ways, overall will tilt in our favour as win rate >60%.

+7% on week and 28% on month. Superb. New equity high.

People ask why sometimes EA take profit is 17.50 and not 20, like today. This is because EA TP and SL are calculate based on the candle open, and not actual open price. this ensures we maintain actual forward trading in line to backtest which always have perfect entry.

Good win/loss ratio this month at 12/17, >70%

In coming weeks we launch:
1. New WebSite
2. EA mods - Remove trade time data scroll that can be annoying.
3. EA mods - Account Dashboard - Show balance, next lot size, account number, demo, live, etc.
4. New EA settings that will target "no loss" days, EA will keep trading until its profitable on that day.

Thank Guys for testing us and have a good weekend.
We 100% appreciate your inputs to make a better product.
I believe we have very good product and with your help will make it even better,

For some reason I did not get a trade today either on Pepperstone demo.  All is setup correctly with live trading enabled, smiley face etc on the GER30 5 min chart.

I adjusted the lots fdown from 20 to 2 and max lots from 40 to 4, but that should not have a bearing.  Also closed the chart first and reattached the EA.  Will see what appens next week.  The EA is definitely running as I'm getting all those expert log messages from it each tick....

Found the reason for no trade :-

0   00:14:58.725   '33795': order sell market 20.00 GER30 sl: 0.0 tp: 0.0
1   00:14:58.913   '33795': order sell 20.00 GER30 opening at market sl: 0.0 tp: 0.0 failed [Not enough money]


That was with a $10k demo account and lotsize of 20 (based on the suggestion of 2 lots per $1k balance) - that must be off as I'd initially queried?

Will see how we go next week now that lotsize is set to 2 instead.

Yea.pepperstone demos probably a FCA demo.
So maybe 30:1 or so.
However we have seen high margin requirements on dax on certain brokers.
Best thing is.open a lot on your demo manually and see how much margin was used.
Dax not like FX...big variation broker to broker in instrument name...margin....some use quarterly contracts...some use spot....some use 1.0 lot as 1 per point......in some broker 1.0 lot is a DAX contract and therefore 25 a point. Do your homework.

Again as system developer we urge diligence on broker. Just cos it doesn't work on your broker doesn't mean it's not profitable. We have seen dax spreads.like 3.0 points wide on so called well rated brokers. We can not stress this enough. On top of all this a wide spread will cause latent signals....maybe the bar after ours (5 min late) which is essentially a missed trade.

Have a good weekend folks.

Yea IC pretty straightforward 1.0 lot is 1 point and they dont use quarterly contract just spot.
If they had a all in spread.of 0.7 they would be #1 choice. Good.broker with good service and fast deposit....withdrawal.
They will slightly underperform our admiral due to higher dealing cost but wont be far away.

2.0 lots on pepperstone might be 2 dax contracts...I.e 50 a point. That's a hefty lot size if they work like that.

Hi Matt - how does this avoid low liquidity days  - it appears to trade every day on the short track record to date..although this can be a tricky one as low liquidity can precede news spikes, which this system appears to thrive on..

In German holiday dates the dax.is closed so no problem with trades. Normally if dax is open liquidity is there. Unlike fx where you get real low liquidity around easter...xmas etx.
News not so often on dax....only German data occasionally will move it.
If bot is in open trade.then it's a 50/50. If waiting for signal it will detect.the big move. Again it's rare and not significant to overall performance. Trade.length only 20minute average so its highly rare to have a trade even near US data time.

My Peperstone demo is 1:500 leverage (I have that on my live accounts too).  Will see how we on on demo.  I've also got live IC Markets accounts at 1:500 leverage - I may put it on demo there instead if Pep is bad, or even on both to see the differences.

2.0 lots on pepperstone might be 2 dax contracts...I.e 50 a point. That's a hefty lot size if they work like that.
Got a successful Pepperstone demo trade open and in progress today at 2 lots.  The current margin requirement for this is $1,471.69.  Thoughts on that Daxbot as regards correct trade sizing for a 10k account?

As regards planned cost of the EA - $99 dollars per month is astronomically high for most!

Here's a pic of the trade showing the margin requirement, but also showing the SL level (the TP is the same distance way off the bottom of teh screen).  Is this the daily target - looks quite wide (200 pips, or is it really 20 pips?) :-

The SL/TP levels are wrong - you are showing just one point instead of 20 @  **72.8 SL and **32.8 TP

Margins for an icmarkets demo GBP account are around 80 GBP per DE30 unit traded SO a 20 unit short trade would be just over 1K margin...

Fees on collective2 for mostly rubbish signals start at $120 per month:)  IF a system can prove to be consistent, reliable and low risk over 12-24 months the monthly cost is worth way more than $99 - the thing is 2-3 months is way too short to really judge, and so I would say $99 is about right  - however, I will demo for longer until I have a much better feel for how it behaves.

Hi Peter, sorry, not getting you there - the EA has set those S/L and T/P levels as per the screenshot.  I just put the tool on top to show the distance away from entry on the chart.

Are you noting that the EA has not set the same S/L and T/P today on my Pepperstone account as it did on your ICM account?

Hi, default setfile info for T/P & S/L :-
StopLoss 2000.0
TakeProfit 2000.0

Suspect it should really have values of 200.0 by default?  Yesterday's trade is still open as it did not make TP or hit SL.  I'll set it to 200.0 as I think that is what it should be....

Maybe that is something that should be updated in the EA default parms if most brokers are like mine if the target is 20 pips.
Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: Ruairi OPleurisy on January 28, 2020, 12:15:27 PM
Updated SL & TP from default value of 2000.0 to 200.0 - that should equate to 20 pips on my broker.  Closed yesterday's trade manually as updated SL and TP values are only used by the EA upon trade open.

Should get another trade tomorrow and going forward with correct TP & SL values populated.

Backtest - did try to do a 99% ticka data backtest over last eight years but the Dukascopy data is not being picked up correctly for this index in the strategy tester like other pairs (the instrument name varies greatly).

Daxbot, can you please provide such a tickdata backtest for :-

- settings where lotsize is doubled after a losing trade
- settings where lotsize is NOT dobled after a losing trade

Thanks.

Because pepperstone only quote 1 figure after the decimal point.
Everyone else quote is like 13258.44
Pepperstone is 13258.4, so move to SL/TP to 200.

Well you can only offer it and let investors decide - 3 months of good results is pretty impressive BUT very few bots last the course hence the previous comments - many have been burnt by systems which showed great potential initially... IF this bot continues to churn out winners you will have no issue with subs. Overall I like the fact that it isn't just a breakout strategy which was my initial concern, and the recent performance is phenomenal. No one in their right mind would risk 5-7% per trade on a bot with just a few months history, but a few percent a month is still a massive return these days...

Guys sorry increasing number has detrimental effect.to performance. Dax tends to lull and wane from 11am.uk for a few hours until US open many times. Volume drops off. Then you will get chopped in bits in a range. Price action not same all day long it has distinct periods of higher volatility during the day.
There is special reason only 1 trade a day.
Again please feel free to play with settings that's why we left them in there but we will not be spending our time trying to break an unbroken toy.
Keeping things clear and precise and 1.trade a.day keeps confusion to a minimum.
I hope that makes sense.
Thanks.

Hi peter
Yes fully understand but many bots doomed to fail by the laws of mathematics.
Nightscalper.eg. 3 pips and 40 sl well it just takes a spread widening or asia volatility to kill it.
Grids we all know are a futile exercise...playing with ticking bomb.
And so on.
But yes 3 months is short and it's normal to assume diligence. This why we give fully working demos for a few months so client can get familiar now. In year end if they like to join then at least they have that familiarity with it.

Thanks!! Appreciate the feedback.

Yes yesterday was tight to the TP.
Just a quick one on significance of spread.
As I run a .2 spread and IC is a 1.0 spread. There will be days I will hit TP and IC will miss. In this case it can miss and reverse. So you end up -20 and I have +20.
Then next day you are on double and it lasts.and mine loss.
Now your -60 I'm at -20 DD. 40 pip swing in performance and increase in overall DD should the loss sequence continue.
Something to bear in mind and should you run a 1pip spread in live I suggest to change SL to 2070 and TP 1930 which will nett.out commission costs and keep performance matched best as possible as admiral has .7 commission costs.

icmarkets had a better price than admiral yesterday hence the close in profit on wider spread BUT I agree overall it would be a good idea to adjust the TP/SL if not using admiral to avoid an unnecessary loss. One thing to consider would be set up a simple trade copy service ( vps rental and trade copier costs are insignificant these days and instant using MT4) for a premium price so that subs brokers match your trades precisely, bar differences in commissions and small slippage.

OK. I am just looking at the volatility on your myfxbook (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/DaxBot/daxbot-admiralprime/3673605) and it seems that things are going up fast, and could go down fast if the market changes significantly. For now it is doing very well and the fixed lot size helps to make it a safer once you have a cushion of profits. I would personally prefer to run it at lower risk, maybe a quarter.

Not sure, I understand that, but that sounds a lot like "clear off".  Will leave you to it.

I backtested the demo and it has been profitable since February 2017. Before that the strategy was a losing one, at least with these settings. So it does depend on market conditions (like every strategy), which could change.

As I said, this is true for every strategy. But it is good to be aware of it and not assume current results will be replicated forever.

Of course but 3 years isn't a bad run.
We do watch ATR carefully and if the VIX (vdax) falls out of it Tp and SL need to reduce. That's the only change....logic stay same. But we try not to focus too much on far future...just near future.

I am currently with Blackbull Markets based in NZD. They do not offer Dax30. I took a look at the three preferred brokers and they all do not accept Canadian residents (being GBP or AUD based).

I would like to trade your EA but I need to find a broker that will trade with me and has Dax30.

GBP, AUD based is a no go.

Anyone have any ideas?

TIA

Blackbull does dax30. 0.94 spread. Acceptable.

Thanks @Daxbot,

I think the broker calls it GER30. Correct?

daxbot,

why are you only running such a small account like $200 equity there abouts ?

the old question comes to mind in regards trusting the strategy, thats why i am asking.

to me it seems to be very well worth running a higher balance, thats why it does not make sense that your master account is so small.

yea heavy sell off and daxbot tried to pick the bounce, wasn't to be.
BTW we are resetting to LEVEL 1 as February new month and we don't carry over the X2 risk.
So, back to base lot now for Mondays trade.
this is just personal preference, Jan and over and Feb start in new slate.

ah sweet, sure appreciate your forthcoming on this.

this will most certainly, a make you profits, and b give you much more credibility sales down the line.

its a good strategy which i been trading dow open 9 30 est manually for some time, its a very interesting concept. actually you might want to look at the dow, maybe your ea can be adapted to trade it as well.

hey Reinerh,
No prbs, thanks. Certainly we will be adding higher high value accounts next week as the product life cycle maturing and we look to really affirm its status.
We are close to a final product on DOW. We have looked at FTSE / CAC etc but correlation is just too high to DAX, end up wins and losses similar times. DOW has its "own" mind. Thing about the DOW the 5 min chart may be too slow, awful lot of action takes place in first 5-10 min, may have to move to Dow 1- min for it. Index often overlooked instrument but offer value due to fixed market open times that FX doesn't have,

Next week we release the DaxBotV2 - removes the trade time scrolling and has a friendly display on chart. logic remains same.

hi daxbot,

sweet, that sure be nice if you can make something with the dow.

its often quite violent at the open, but looking back overnight action is what i base my entries on. so that be great if you can get something coded to whatever method yours is.

Guys we make a strategic change to start time 9:56 from 10:00
This allows the EA time to enter the first bar signal in future.
I will relay this across clients.
Start Hour 9
Start Minute 56

This will help alleviate 10:00 opens issues especially if the signal arrives just as the bar opens and the time clock starts simulanteously.

Hi Matt - are you using 5% risk per trade - note the 3rd has two entries - assume these were partial fills? I had my demo set on the wrong time frame yesterday and when changed back it also took that late losing trade, so you are right regarding trading only the market open - makes sense! It appears slippage is quite a common feature with this pair?...

Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: Daxbot on February 05, 2020, 04:00:30 PM
Hi.
Yes please all change open to 9.56
Means this will eradicate the 10am bar open issue that sometimes can be missed due to a conflict of window time open and signal at exact moment in time.
Move time window to 9.56 will ensure EA is running for 4 minutes and then just seeking signal.
Do not make it earlier than 9.56 as it will take trades before 10am bar.
Let's hope we dont get too many 10am open signals. Not a fan of them but peform better with them.

daxbot,

if you have a minute, could you please be so kind and post a backtest for the period nov 18 to today, your forward run time ?

i am curious how well it matches.

i tried with your demo version last week and i could not get similar results. i think my backtester is broken since it was way of.

since i did the whole year as well and it showed no gains, i used tds and even played around with different start times, all no luck. as i said i think something is wrong on my end.

thanks much.

In your case peter, the SL and TP always calculate from OFFICIAL BAR OPEN not ACTUAL OPEN because in this way it will replicate the way it supposed to run and run in LINE with HISTORICAL TESTING. Same as us, our entry was 7 pips under the open bar price, so SL was like 13 pips today.

Look at 10am picture
BOT send order at 10am to Broker IC markets at 13578.00 CHECK THE CHART. Bot needs to place stop loss, so it take the requested price and deduct 20 points. So, SL is 13558.
In meantime,. order get filled at 13571.00, so now SL is only 13 points from your actual price. SL will always be 20 points from bar open (requested price) not price the trade actually opened.
This is the only way it can work, because otherwise it WILL NOT ALIGN to backtest!!!
Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: laracroft on February 06, 2020, 10:46:40 AM
Since it is an impulsive bot, the backtests will never be perfectly aligned with real trading.
On my account, it opened at 13569.00 and placed a sl at -21.20, that is, at 13547.80
However it would be better to do the backtest with the modeling quality offered by TDS (TickDataSuite): the program is free for the first 15 days (my trial period has expired) and it is very easy to use
@ Matts: your backtes shows 8 chart errors and therefore is not very precise

lara,

his bt does match rather well to the forward results. i dont care about errors if it matches.

my bt are just bad with this ea, some other ea they match forward, then again some others absolutely not, go figure. i used tds and terminal data on this one, no luck. its the weirdest thing which i will never figure out why that is.

todays session open trade was a crapshoot since at the open it often can be erratic on the dow, same goes for ger30.

yes the backtest should be in 90%+ correlation to BT.
If you want to send a screenshot of your backtest, we may be able to spot something, normally something simple.

Again, we cant re-iterate enough SPREAD is VITAL and even small margin of error can make substantial difference.

Tough luck this morning.



If the bot is sending a buy trade to the broker @ 13569, as today, the stop should always be @ 13549 (=20 pips) should it not - otherwise we have the bot working against us; whether it is an official trade or not.......?

Look at 10am picture
BOT send order at 10am to Broker IC markets at 13578.00 CHECK THE CHART. Bot needs to place stop loss, so it take the requested price and deduct 20 points. So, SL is 13558.
In meantime,. order get filled at 13571.00, so now SL is only 13 points from your actual price. SL will always be 20 points from bar open (requested price) not price the trade actually opened.
This is the only way it can work, because otherwise it WILL NOT ALIGN to backtest!!!

OK so the actual entry was around 10 pips positive slippage in our favour leaving the SL as per original bot instruction; and IF the SL hadn't been hot the TP would have been around 30 pips taking into account the better entry....

Very strange trade today - stopped out at -10 pips 10.02 @ bar low of **58.50 for some reason...assume others got a win - good job this is demo) TP/SL both set at default 20 pips icmarkets demo.

Our 10am friend again caused some wins and some loss.
In your case peter, the SL and TP always calculate from OFFICIAL BAR OPEN not ACTUAL OPEN because in this way it will replicate the way it supposed to run and run in LINE with HISTORICAL TESTING. Same as us, our entry was 7 pips under the open bar price, so SL was like 13 pips today.
Attached image.
Many got winner today, very very tight on SL, maybe by 0.5 pip.
OPEN on IC was 13578, so your buy was OFFICIALLY 13579, SL 13578.5 (1950 points)
Hit SL exactly.
Had you used 2070 SL as mentioned previous, trade was winner.
Again, we cant re-iterate enough SPREAD is VITAL and even small margin of error can make substantial difference.

Post by: petersurrey on February 12, 2020, 01:17:06 AM
It had a similar sequence in December - the issue with really short term records is you have very little to reassure if things go south - versus a 2 year track record with proven recovery from drawdowns  - so it is way too early to make a judgment on this one as yet.
Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: Daxbot on February 12, 2020, 09:45:29 AM
hi guys
yes set of 3 or 4 (less so) sequence is logical once a month, according to history live and backtest. It typical the way the market want you to disbelieve in system, as you turn it off it rallies.
poor run, but always comes a good streak also. Obviously, a win/loss/win/loss sequence is easier to take than a set of 3.
As Peter mentioned we got hit with a 4 streak in December.
I added 3k account to myfxbook.

hi Matts,

interesting the new account... but i see a difference with mine: you got a TAKEPROFIT yesterday when i hit a STOPLOSS...

same broker ADMIRAL... why difference? see attached grabbed screen

this is little irritating...

best regard

EDIT:

i just see now that you have a STOPLOSS on previous account. you use different set on this new 3k account?

Title: Re: Daxbot
Post by: Daxbot on February 12, 2020, 10:23:26 AM
no same settings
My original reference account got stopped -20, the 3k got better entry so got out for +20. Same broker and SAME server.
It was fractions in it.
But if you run Strategy tester this was officially loss cos entry max pips from bar entry was 19.2
Title: Re: Daxbot

In Blackbull they are closing market in Dax for 9 hours every night, with the result a break in data, a gap open of 100 pips at 9am server time, it creating signals not aligned to broker with constant flow of data and not closing market.
If EA is picking entry based on last 1000 data points, then both brokers have 2 sets of data points.

Hi.
You are better to remove it from blackbull the gaps are giving it false data its out of sync from other data that runs 24 hours
Run the strategy tester and you will see the problem.

Right. Maybe MetaQuotes decide to make some extra money and sold your EA?

Beside, 10$ is still very pricey for an EA what does nothing else than burn cash.  ;)
