Title: Best Scalper
Post by: kjen17 on April 02, 2014, 09:39:05 PM
Couldn't see a thread on this, website design reminds me of Wall Street FR

Yeah, the site design reminds of WSFR team.
But this EA only trades asian session, and it is very active in comparison to the WSFR which trades not so often.

Have been running Best Scalper live for about 3 weeks alongside Forex Scalpino, looks ok so far.
Might try on GU also with fixed 0.01 lot size.

It looks very interesting and yes from the style of the website it looks from Fxautomater! If it is like this it would be a good guarantee that the product will be well supported! I will watch closely! :)

But the price is cheap for them and also I didn't receive 2000 advertising mails.
 I remember the launch of diamond the spam was insane.
Why should they keep this one silent? Looks good though.

I bought it today and i dont think its from the same guys. Member area is totally different.
Think vendor is only using the same style for the web. Anyway looks very good and a short bt confirms that. Running now and waiting for the first session this evening.  ;)

Strange, i do not receive advertising mails from Fxautomater! Only e-mails when are available updates or when they suggest new settings! I wil contact fxautomater and if it is from them i will try it the soonest, and if not inwould wait few more months!

Guys, I asked the Wallstreet EA support about this "Best Scalper" and they answered that this is a bad joke and they will take legal actions against these people, because they steal the whole their design. I would not purchase a chewing gum from a joke-site like this.

What has the website design got to do with the ea? They might have taken liberties with the WSFR website but the ea is completely different to Wally. Best Scalper places pending orders within a 2 hour trading window and has proved an effective and profitable strategy in the time I have been trading it after purchase.

Give them crap for allegedly copying Wally website but credit where its due for what looks to be a solid ea.

If someone can steal once it can steal twice too. I can bet that the system is stolen too. I would never give my money to support a thief.

You are right Jon,

very good results on my live account also since start. Right now its my best scalping ea.
Bad that Scalpino is so silent the last days. Hope it will trade next week.
Today i shut off my scalpers due FOMC and tomorrow G20.

Yes but what is it a copy of? Someone post proof of it being a copy and I will request a refund from the payment processor.
I have to laugh..........I caught a vendor selling a copy of FMNS on another thread AND posted pretty incriminating proof......quiet as in that thread. Best Scalper copies a website design and they get heaps of grief. I do not condone copying of websites but feel it is a lesser 'crime' than reselling a free ea!

Hey Mark  ;)  Yeah, it looks a pretty solid ea. Good results on EU and GU within that 2 hour trading window. Scalpino seems to take trades on new highs of retraces from what I can see, market needs to be just right for it to trade. Having said that, good results on GU, UCad, UChf provides additional trading opportunities. Will fire it up on all popular Asian scalping pairs on a demo and see how it goes  :D

It bugs me that this vendor Im SURE just copied this from a free EA and threw up a wordpress template and a backtest and voila -
hope someone can tell us which free EA it was cuz just like u just said, Im not about to just give free money to thieving scumbags.

Having said that, curious to see how this performs live over some more time.
a pre-asia scalper that actually stays in profit and keeps it even with ninja news and spread widening and rollover nightmares is kinda a "white whale" to me - theres nothing else going on that time of day and it would be cool to put capital to work. Never been able to do it though, all the pre-asians so far have been mirages, a single huge SL wipeout erases 3 months of gains, so its a waste of time (or has been for me)

I have seen a similar system but can't recall the ea. One of Rita Laskers was similar, Forex Fish from memory? Would also be interested in hearing from anyone that recognizes it. Having said that....working a treat for me too date :)

I will watch it too and see how it goes, the truth is that it has been running 2 months. It was 3 months before momods got whacked with ninja news that wiped out all its gains, all the other pre-asians are the same or have been for me, from megadroid to shocker, the list is endless, they can go on making 3 pips a day for 3 or 4 or 6 months and then BAM bye bye to all profits - only one that wins is the broker. Please tell me why you think this one will be any different. I have hopes too, but lets be realistic.

Where there is life there is hope  :D  You are right though, the ones you mentioned I tried also until they took a hit. I am hoping the strictest news filter settings will allow my momods account to continue on its merry way past 100% gain. Ninja news is the downfall of the asian scalpers though as you said. We will see how the likes of Best Scalper and Scalpino handle the inevitable ninja news during their respective trading windows when it happens.

I just get it from a friend here and performed some test just to prove that this is a junk. It is an Asian session scalper which is a complete looser after 2010. They even did not make an attempt to adapt it for the current market. You are warned people - do not give your money for this junk. And please stop promoting this SCAM, because I am getting very suspicious about some of the members here!

Sorry but i get suspicious if i read that you got a copy from a friend. This is mabye a scam but until there is a real proof stop posting such theorys. I am sure that we will get more infos in the near future from a real customer. And btw its clickbank with 60 days refund so not a big deal to test it out.

I don't use this EA and I do not intend to use it but you should be a little bit cautious with your accusations. Considering you are almost exclusively posting in fxautomater threads and praising their products one could get suspicious about you too ;)

What I see on the live accounts of the vendor is, that expectancy of profit is 2.4 pips. And that is small. I guess this EA is very broker and spread dependent

Yes, it would have been a prudent move by Best Scalper to address the issues of copying content. Be a damn shame to lose use of the ea due to an issue that was potentially fixable :(

"Bestscalper.com just experienced emergency  maintenance, we will be back in 24 hours.We are temporary apologize for any inconvenience.
Please feel free to mail to support@bestscalper.com or bestscalper@hotmail.com"

Ive just bought BestScalper yesterday and it makes two positive trades in the first night. The trade logic looks fine.
Which settings do you use? I ran the EA v 1.27 on 4 Charts, 2 EURUSD and 2 GBPUSD with different Trading Times.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: HFT Group on April 17, 2014, 09:49:15 AM
Hopefully they will get it sorted. Didn't get any notification of an updated version, I am still running V1.21.
I run default on both pairs. D
Can't see the point running on 4 charts unless you halve the risk I guess. Might as well just extend the trading time by an hour. Certainly wouldn't trade it earlier but possibly an hour or two later will work.
Ea closes orders at end of trading hours.....including live trades. If you run on more than one account and you close the earlier mt4 platform you have to resister account number again, bit of a pain but works ok on multiple accounts..........one live and the rest demos of course  :D
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: McBain2109 on April 17, 2014, 10:21:15 AM
I used their suggested settings:

"Suggest setting, you may open 4 chart (2 EURUSD and 2 GBPUSD), put the EA on each chart with different magic No. same risk or lots value. Different trading hours (EST 16:00-18:00 and EST 17:00-18:00), make comparing and calculate on your brokers time."

I think the idea is, that in the second hour the trades are likely more accurate, so I can double the risk for one hour. But lets see, I run it on a small live account.

I guess.........why not just run at 16:00 to 18:00 and check trade results? Modify trading times once you have some history...........same difference essentially I guess.

Did they get news filter working in latest version? As per Forex Scalpino, this seems the most difficult thing for the vendors to implement. Source code of FMNS with a functional news filter is freely available as is a good news feed source in FFcal indicator. I actually offered to provide these to Best Scalper vendor but no interest it seems.

No, the complete News Filter settings are removed in the actual version. In the manual, they are available. I also think the implementation of the FMNS News Filter function is easy.

Can't understand why its such an issue to implement news filters into Asian scalping ea's, would make trading them so much simpler and less risky. They told me they were going to get the news filter working but looks like they are going backwards!

Another member has given me details on a commercial news filter ea that can be set to turn off all ea's on the mt4 platform before user adjusted news impact settings. Will be looking into it as a one-stop solution for all ea's requiring news filters  ;)

I agree, not sure why its so tough to have a working one included.
In my own opinion, though, it is irrelevant.
The skewed R:R u get when there is UNNANOUNCED news (Ninja News) is what ruins ALL of these pre-asian scalpers that we have yet tested. Seriously, all of them, I could rattle of 100 of them that I have used live, and I know many of you could as well. One ninja news, and it wipes 4 months of profits, as it isnt just the loss, its the huge slippage that is likely when that happens. So this cannot BE fixed with just a filter for known news releases.

Once again I totally agree. Its really about making the decision to trade Asian scalper ea's and having the best available news filter in place to disable trading and minimize losses through scheduled news releases. As far as Ninja news goes, this can affect most every trading strategy and needs to be taken into account when setting risk for worse case scenario.

Hello Guys,

Someone who use this can make a 99% BT for EU & GU at least from 2011 please? By the way, it seems their site is not available anymore.  :-X

Good idea. It runs very good live so far. I can only find a one year backtest on myfxbook on EURUSD (nothing on GBPUSD).
Maybe it takes only one year to get good results for trading 2 hours asian time?

I would like to see if it can cope a 99% BT from 2011 on both pairs. I could do it but  dont own the EA yet :-)

There is discussions on other sites about this beeing a copy of the free momods night scalper. The HUD display on the charts is very like and so on. To bad the settings is hidden and not open in the EA settings.

I guess the free version could be optimised on the same way, I remember that FMNS had trouble on M15, M30 gave better results.
Bestscalper trades M15, right?

I will start up again some optimising on the FMNS on thoose pairs from 2013.

It looks like Bestscalper is using TP:5 and SL:30 and it can open at least 2 trades at the same time.
RR is bad but over 90% winners is helping.

The only similarities I can find between Best Scalper and FMNS is the HUD and the fact they are both Asian session scalpers. FMNS trades EU on 30 min chart while all other pairs on 15 min charts, Best Scalper places a pending buy and sell order at the beginning of the trading session. Both orders can be triggered or just one or none at all. If a trade is closed another 2 pending orders are placed if still within the 2 hour trading window. All orders are closed at the end of the trading session, both pending and open orders.

If anyone genuinely wants to backtest the ea and post results here for the benefit of interested forum members please PM me.

Here is my EURUSD backtest with latest v1.27.

I was going to show it from 2011 with 2.0 lotsize, but backtests takes forever and the USD10.000 account was blown only after a few months in 2011.

So here is a backtest from 2013 with half the recommended lotsize (1.0). If I had gone with the recommended 2.0 lotsize the account would habve been blown even started 2013 January!

Strange with this big differencies between my backtest and Bestscalpers backtest: http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/bestscalper-1year-2hour/58950 (http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/bestscalper-1year-2hour/58950)
In my tickdata there is $7 in commission included and I am using real spread.

v.1.27 is using EST times in the settings instead of GMT. And I am using the default start at EST16 and close at EST18. I hope this is the correct trading time?

I see no idea to spend any more time on backtesting this EA from 2011, unless someone is interested in that.

Feel free to upload the htm file to myfxbook strategy for deeper analyze.

Great job and much appreciated. I am running 16:00 to 18:00 EST as default settings which correspond to the correct GMT trading times so seems right to me. Only installed v1.27 over the weekend so should see first trades in tomorrows' (Tuesday) session. Difference between your back test and vendors' published back test is amazing. Live trade results are really impressive, the ea just seems to nail entries and the rare losers are closed at minimal loss. Be really interesting to see if it maintains current performance long term.

Hi,all traders and other EA vendors, we are here to talk about the thought in BS EA, Bestscalper Forex Robot. honestly we are not other EA who just want to sell , who don't care the benefit of clients. the scalping EA is high complex do developing, design, coding, protect, back test, but we have a success team to do it and we get it. we were working hard and put 100% heart on it. we have 100% copyright from end to end.the EA require RAW spread for EURUUSD and GBPUSD, most ECN broker can provide it, but they may wide the spread during roll over period. it is big things to affect the performance of EA. to the experience traders,if you want to back test it, you have to adjust the timezone , spread , parameter setting. at last Be remember history is only history ,not assure anything ,it just give you the reference . Our EA is just working at current market environment ,testing with long time history is nonsense to us, we will keep optimize with the further market environment .

Hi Bestscalper, and welcome to the thread.

I have some questions about the differencies in my backtest on EU and the one you have uploaded to myfxbook -

In my backtest data I have adjusted the timezone DST shifts with a script, in the same script I have also set the spread to real (dukascopy raw ticks), as you self wrote about raw spread ECN brokers. Then I also added $7 commission since that is what you are paying an ECN broker generally.

So my backtest is not any fake fixed spread test without commission, but as real conditions as possible. Then there is slippage also, that I havent even calculated so expect the backtest to be even worse.

I asume thoose is your settings also when you did your backtest? Could you explain if you think I can have made something else wrong when backtesting your EA? Or is it possible that you can have done something wrong? Your backtest settings is public at myfxbook. I have the same on my backtest.

Really nice to see the EA perform so nice in real accounts  ;)

Hi LFN, my question is OT, but i am very interested in improve my backtest ability and i see you are very competent! I am using tickstory lite which is free and i obtain very good quality BT (99,9%). I have never used Birt's tickdatasuite and for sure is more performing! From what i know the bigger differences between tickstory and tickdatasuite are that you can use also datas bigger than 4 gb and that you can use variabile spreads? Or there are also other differences? Also to use tickdatasuite, after you payed the license, you must also pay the monthly fee for support of 10 usd, or it is not necessary (if u do not need support)? Are u using Walkforwardanalyzer?
http://www.easyexpertforex.com/walk-forward-metatrader.html (http://www.easyexpertforex.com/walk-forward-metatrader.html)
U think this tool (very cheap) could be usefull?
Sorry if i bothernyou u but i am very interested in good BT, because i think is an important beginning point to evaluate an EA and to find the best settings! Also, do you know some forums where people discuss exclusively about BT!
thanks in advance

Guys, I already showed my GBPUSD 1 pip spread backtest which is a crap. Believe me I have experience with Asian session scalpers since 2007. I made 3000% on a real account on EURGBP just for a month in 2008 when the crisis starts. After the first month the brokers increased the spreads from 2 to 3-4 pips during the Asian session and all this dream gone like a smoke. This "best scalper" joke is not optimized for the last several years and the backtest is just ugly even with just 1 pips spread!!!  Remember my words - you will loss your money with this. Do not waist your time and money and give them to an impudent thief. I really can not explain to my self how someone can buy this whit a backtests like this ...

Look man, can you make backtests? Do you see backtest results on the "best scalper" site? Real account is not enough at all. It must be backed up with solid backtests. I have 6 years experiens trading with EAs and I know how important the backtest is, so if the backtest on some EA is a crap the EA is a crap too. The real results can be manipulated with manual interventions or to be just lucky, so if you have a perfect real results with a crappy backtest something stings big time. But if you want to trow your money in the trash it is your choice. I just want to prevent the delusion of the visitors here and safe they money, because I can see when some EA is a scam.

Best Scalper obviously doesn't (A) back test accurately or (B) is just on a temporary winning run. Be a damn shame as I really like this bot.
Was wondering if someone ran a back test from the start of the vendors oldest verified live account and compared results?

This is just a lucky period, or the real accounts are manually managed. Check the backtests of the guys here and you will find several nice profitable periods followed by a plunges. The market is quiet with low volatility, but when the big daddy trend comes you will see a different picture ... then your accounts will be gone and you will remember my words.

Guys I would suggest you to try one free EA - there is a thread in the free EA section here. I think it was Dynamic Pro Scalper. Of course it is an Asian scalper and the usage is limited, but at least it is free. If you do not believe me just compare the backtests of this free EA and the backtest of the "best scalper" and you will see the difference.

What is the spread of this backtest? You have expected payoff 1.46, so if the spread of the backtest is 0.5 but in reality you will have 2 pips for EURUSD during the Asian session, calculate the slippage and you will be a total looser with this EA.

Disregard loss on 11th April as was testing Scalpino on other pairs at that time. Scalpino has since been removed from the account.

If you can not make your own backtest then please do not speculate! GMT 2 is the right choice for Alpari. Anyway I tested GMT 1 and GMT 3, just to be sure and the results was best with GMT 2. Make your own baktests and then talk!

I am not speculating. I just pointed out that you have Auto-GMT activated. Usually this setting overrides manual GMT settings. So you might want to try disabling it during backtesting.

Will probably live to regret this but..............here is the myfxbook link to the IC Markets demo master account running Best Scalper on EU and GU. Default settings up until 5 minutes ago when I extended the trading finish time by one hour to 16:00 - 19:00 EST in line with FMNS trading times. Disregard loss on 11th April as was testing Scalpino on other pairs at that time. Scalpino has since been removed from the account. All Best Scalper trades are copied to live account via mt4i trade copier. Demo and live account both hosted on Beeks NY4 vps.

Interesting, if I am analyzing things right on myfxbook, it looks like you have 11/11 positive trades in the 3rd hour you extended trading to.

I suggest you make BT again. 1.28 update
Here is my EURUSD backtest with latest v1.27.

I was going to show it from 2011 with 2.0 lotsize, but backtests takes forever and the USD10.000 account was blown only after a few months in 2011.

So here is a backtest from 2013 with half the recommended lotsize (1.0). If I had gone with the recommended 2.0 lotsize the account would habve been blown even started 2013 January!

Strange with this big differencies between my backtest and Bestscalpers backtest: http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/bestscalper-1year-2hour/58950 (http://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/bestscalper-1year-2hour/58950)
In my tickdata there is $7 in commission included and I am using real spread.

v.1.27 is using EST times in the settings instead of GMT. And I am using the default start at EST16 and close at EST18. I hope this is the correct trading time?

I see no idea to spend any more time on backtesting this EA from 2011, unless someone is interested in that.

Feel free to upload the htm file to myfxbook strategy for deeper analyze.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
- Default settings
- Fixed lot 1.0 (half the risk Bestscalper recommends)

I would say it is pretty normal to have a couple of identical trades with all these nightscalpers. They all trade in a small time window and probably use similar indicators (overbought, oversold) for their entries. As volatility is usually very low during this time you can have similar/same entries even if you coded the ea with different indicators and levels.

Guys I would suggest you to try one free EA - there is a thread in the free EA section here. I think it was Dynamic Pro Scalper. Of course it is an Asian scalper and the usage is limited, but at least it is free. If you do not believe me just compare the backtests of this free EA and the backtest of the "best scalper" and you will see the difference.
Many thanks Phoebus for the advice. I am performing a lot of tick data Backtest on scalpers and Dynamic Pro Scaper and other showed very good results (also with 2 pips spreads) and i will start to try them on demo! I will post the Backtests in the appropriate threads!

Do you see this on your account, or are you looking at the myfxbook analysis?

I am using this EA, and I don't see the large floating gains that myfxbook shows.  In fact, this EA has a limit order to close the position at +5pips.  I'm not sure how accurate the myfxbook data is, but I haven't seen large floating gains on my account and then have the EA give much of it back.  If anything, it closes trades a little early in my opinion.

If you backtest it for several years it never has any trades in more profit than 5.0 pips. So it seems that it is a hard TP of 5 pips.

Should I keep EST_offset at 0, when using tickdata with GMT0 when I am backtesting?
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: swordfish on April 27, 2014, 07:01:54 PM
A general rule of thumb for using dukascopy tick data is to set GMToffset=0. To be sure, you can back test from February 4, 2014 to March 8 for just one month before daylight savings time started (not sure how dukascopy tick data deal with daylight savings). If your back test trades match vendor's live trades, then you are doing it correctly.

Since it is EST offset in the EA and not GMT offset I think it is required to set EST_OFFSET to 5 if I have GMT0 data. Does it seems correct?
I wonder why they switched from GMT_OFFSET to EST_OFFSET in the settings parameters  ???

If I backtest with ESTSTART=16, ESTSTOP=18 and EST_OFFSET=5...it seems to open trades between 21:00-22:59 GMT. That should be correct.
I will start all over with the backtest from 2011-01-01. I will publish it tomorrow evening.

The dst shift is controlled by a script I use that adjusts the tickdata. Learn more at Birts site.

Here is my new EURUSD backtest from 2011 with latest v1.28.

I have no idea if you should set the parameters to EST4 or EST5 when having GMT0 tickdata with DST shift adjusted. But the difference between EST4 and EST5 is very small and does not make a big difference. I am attaching both the EST4 and EST5 backtests in the zip file.

I was going to show the backtest with 2.0 lotsize (recommended by vendor), but the USD10.000 account was blown only after a few months in 2011.

So here is a backtest from 2011 with half the recommended lotsize (1.0). If I had gone with the recommended 2.0 lotsize the account would have been blown quickly.

The EA seems optimised from 2013 because results before 2013 is very bad. Maybe that is enough for an asian scalper?

The DD is between 86-89% with EST5/EST4 with half the recommended risk!!!

The results from 4th February 2014, compared to the PrimeXM live account the vendor shows is similar if we compare the trades under two trading hours. The PrimeXM live account is trading a 3 hour session.

Feel free to upload the htm files to myfxbook strategy for deeper analyze.

Very good work LFN! I have BT other preasian Scalpers and had the same results: good results from 2013 and incredibly bad 2011 and 2012! Maybe this is normal because the A sensitive EA like a scalper must be adapted to actual  market conditions! but it's parameters must be optimized at least every 6 months if not users will blow the accounts like using a martigrid with big lots! Scalpers works on market inefficiencies and these does not last forever! Scalpers are my favourite EAs but results from BT start to worry me!

Here is my new EURUSD backtest from 2011 with latest v1.28.

I have no idea if you should set the parameters to EST4 or EST5 when having GMT0 tickdata with DST shift adjusted. But the difference between EST4 and EST5 is very small and does not make a big difference. I am attaching both the EST4 and EST5 backtests in the zip file.

I was going to show the backtest with 2.0 lotsize (recommended by vendor), but the USD10.000 account was blown only after a few months in 2011.

So here is a backtest from 2011 with half the recommended lotsize (1.0). If I had gone with the recommended 2.0 lotsize the account would have been blown quickly.

The EA seems optimised from 2013 because results before 2013 is very bad. Maybe that is enough for an asian scalper?

The DD is between 86-89% with EST5/EST4 with half the recommended risk!!!

The results from 4th February 2014, compared to the PrimeXM live account the vendor shows is similar if we compare the trades under two trading hours. The PrimeXM live account is trading a 3 hour session.

Feel free to upload the htm files to myfxbook strategy for deeper analyze.

How did you factor in news releases where BS support advises not trading the ea or users disable manually?
I love this ea but it badly needs a news filter!  A commercial news filter ea is receiving good reports so I will be implementing it for Best Scalper this week. Just means running BS on a separate mt4 platform along with the news filter ea as I currently run it with FMNS with its integrated effective news filter and another scalper that runs 24/5.

@ bestscalper..........any plans for an integrated news filter similar to FMNS?

It never worked did it? I would have liked to see them invest time and effort into a working news filter rather than scrap the idea completely. How hard can it be? An effective news filter can be implemented into a free ea (FMNS) but not a commercial ea?

There was never a chance to test the news filter before the version change. Besides, it was advised to set news filter to false and just follow the email alert not to trade.  The way I see it is that only the FOMC scheduled at 2:00 PM New York could have an effect on Best Scalper. This can be easily taken care of by not trading that day.  Can you think of any other news for USD, EUR and GBP around the the trading hours that need to be filtered out?

Maybe it was Forex Scalpino support that replied the news filter didn't work when I asked then. Know it was one of the two as I purchased both with the intention of keeping one and settled on Best Scalper.
Totally understand where you're coming from regarding scheduled news around the time that BS trades. However, experience has shown that the only really effective way to minimise losses is to disable trading on any news releases. Best Scalper trades very similarly to FMNS so for my peace of mind I will be implementing news filtering at the same level as for FMNS trading on EU and GU.

Post by: odysseus11 on May 05, 2014, 02:44:11 PM
What would be REALLY helpful would be a filter that disables trades or closes positions when there is unannounced "ninja" news spike. As was already pointed out, the scheduled news at this time is minimal. It sthe unannounced stuff that upsets the apple cart.

Some kind of a volatility filter might work, I have seen alot of ideas kicked around, personally have yet to find something reliable on MT4, by the time ninja news spikes are detected it is usually far too late to prevent a crazy loss that often blows thru stops and incurs massive slippage while doing so - this has been the achilles heel for all of these pre-asia bots. It isnt the "scheduled" news. That is minimal, occurs seldom, and can be handled manually easily.

I am looking at BestScalper, looks very interesting: on MyFxBook a monthly results much higher than the DD, which is pretty much unique! And apparently with many different brokers.
So I do not understand the reservations about "news filter" etc. Is there a hidden danger?

Anyone making money with this EA? What broker do you use? Thanks. (I am thinking of using LMAX)

The problem with Dukascopy tick data is that you can't use real spread before 2013 because their spreads were much worse than most ECN brokers, specially at Asian session times. You should use FXOpen tick data, it's very good, I'm using it to optimize and test my EA's. Also you have to set an order commission too to make it more realistic (I see you did it, good!)

I like the way this EA controls the trades and gets in and out fairly well - I have made money with it.

HOWEVER -- you must deal on razor sharp spreads to make money as this is getting in and out within 1-5 points most of the time .... so your wasting your money if you don't have that.

for me this is an 8/10 product  .. also you should have some sort of rebate deal when using these scalpers as even a scalper that breaks even is still valuable with that included.

Large differences in results with 'similar' broker types. I just let it run at 0.01 lots for a few weeks and increased lot size where it was profitable. HUD shows running profit/loss which makes things very simple   :D

Saying that my broker (FINFX ECN) is not good for this EA, claiming spreads are to high, which they are not in real life.- being in US this should be one of the best brokers available .... but the EA lost about 10% in 4 weeks trading the real account EURUSD and GBPUSD 4 charts total.

I can only speak for myself of course - but this one is a constant money maker for me - and when they send an email suggesting to stop trading then that is what I do... because it is a scalper not a trend trader.

absolutely I know that this is a broker dependent EA - of that there is no doubt -- it is really scalping for 1-5 points

If I were you and your using a broker that just does not support this type of trading - I would send the vendor a copy of my account statement - as it would be really unfair not to get your money back.

Of course, you should pursue your legitimate entitlement to a refund via Clickbank who will overrule the vendor and issue a refund.

Dear traders, we have mention that on our website,"Scalping in Asia session at ECN brokers". but some of you trade it on Micro and standard account type which mean you make against with the Broker's BBook, the brokers provide you markets maker, high spreads and unexceptionable slippage, those action will prevent the EA to get profit. so you loss your money. Don't play with your money any more. in the other hand, most of our members are smart, who follow our suggestion and get continually gain as ours. cheers up!

Axitrader Pro accounts is true ECN. But your ea don't work at that broker account. Steady losses.
Have you tested Global Prime?

It seems bestscalper objected to my last post regarding the forum member who is a US resident and refused a refund after finding the ea unprofitable.

They decided to send me a PM in response to my post which I will share here with respect and fairness to all parties involved.

Hello, everyone , I am from asia, sorry for my bad English, But I have to say something for BestScalper. I have using the Bestsclper for months, up to now, perfect performance for me. And the author provide good service to me;They even help to install EA for me, and help me via remote step by step, and tell me  when to avoid trading.  I have tried a lot of EA before,What did they give to me? lost and lost, like WallStreet ,not successful. But their monitor account still good, I dont know why.
    I dont know why there are so many complaints to them. I know here there are many EA vendors. They should study from "BestScalper" to make good EA for clients, instead of beat them.

that post above was written by the vendor or one of their friends obviously.

I can tell you I had 1 issue with the Best Scalper and sent an email - and they replied in about 2-3 hours - so for me things have gone fairly smoothly.

also they introduced an update feature that does it automatically - which I really like - you just click accept and it does it itself.

as far as profits go - I'm just going to grab them off the HUD - after commissions.

GBP  $34.44
EUR  $39.53

Before Commissions total profit = $184

I also get a rebate back on the commission paid -- so overall I'm happy to run this EA - it makes consistent profit albeit smallish - plus the cash back.

BUT you gotta use a really good broker suited to the EA.

Cheers

also if they send you an email telling you to disable the EA due to news coming out -- then you must do it ---> this is a scalper with no news filter = so you gotta take manual action to stop it trading

if not I could understand people taking some serious losses.

anyway that is part of using Asian Scalpers you have to be on the ball as far as news goes.

Great results on Pepperstone ;) A few brokers I have tested are profitable on both pairs ( Axi US09 Pro ECN, IC Markets, Armada Markets), while other brokers are profitable on one pair....some EU, others GU. Its good to add Pepper to the list as a broker that is profitable on both pairs. Thank you for sharing your results and broker/vps setup  :) Rep to you  ;)

Best Scalper recommended trying 2 trading windows, 16:00 to 18:00 EST and 17:00 to 19:00 EST. I tested on a 3 hour trading window instead, (16:00 to 19:00 EST) but ended up reverting to vendors initial recommended trading window of 16:00 to 18:00 EST.

According to my experience , news filter is useless, How long to decide before and after the news? Most of times,after the strong move of the trading session , it is a good chance to get profit, because there is high possibility the market will be run in a channel.  So , the basic trading knowledge necessary, but not totally depending on any news filter.

I think you totally misunderstand what I mean, I mean a indicator of any "newsfilter" is useless, instead of do not care about NEWs, on the contrary, I pay much attention to any News in the trading session.

looking at your trades your problem is your pricing

I am buying at 59.4 and 59.5 and selling at 61.6 61.9 and 62

you are buying at 60.7 and 61.2

I am selling at 63.7 and 63.9 and buying back at 60.2

where you are selling at 62.1

so it is the prices your dealing at - you need better broker to trade with .. cheers.

According to the broker's results (http://www.myfxbook.com/members/Bestscalper (http://www.myfxbook.com/members/Bestscalper)), best brokers seem to be Pepperstone, RoboForex and FXPIG.

Hello Jon, so your longer term results for ICMarkets are good? In line with the vendor's results? Since when are you trading this one with ICMarkets?

But icmarktes have tight EU and GU spreads (EU ag is 0, GU ag about 0.5), the authors also recommend it

Very true. My results are good on IC Markets. Your results not good?

Here are my results for the same trades on IC Markets. The ea is profitable on EU and GU on IC Markets, just give it a chance. Make sure you turn off BS for news as advised by vendor.

Hello Jon, so your longer term results for ICMarkets are good? In line with the vendor's results? Since when are you trading this one with ICMarkets?
I am trading it since June 6 and I have made few wins and many losses.  (I am with ICMarkets on vps from BeeksFx)

EU results are looking good, nice profit. I took a hit last week with news as was relying on news filter on FMNS which stuffed up so GU BS  results affected also.

My observations so far are that it is excellent on ICM on EU and brilliant on Axi US09 on GU. A friend trades it on ICM but from CNS and shows better results than mine on Beeks for both pairs........BUT.....I show better results on Axi Pro from Beeks than his results from CNS.......go figure  :-\

So thanks to this thread i probably found what caused my bad ICmarkets results:
I found out that all ICMarkets MT4 accounts are in NY4, and not in London as they said when I took the account. So I will have to move the VPS to NY4. (My ping was now 70ms...)

Also I have asked ICMarkets to give me a new account through HFTgroup, so I can get this $1,50 rebate. The say they will do that. (This info could be added to the HFT site.)

Hi

Bestscalper may or may not work depending on brokers spreads, I think it the conclusion for me. However the customer service of these guys is completely FUBAR ... basically they call their customers stupid to their face or in forums like this and do not honor thier own claim of money back guarantee .....  :o .... oh well on to the next EA ;-)

-tsatsa

It seems bestscalper objected to my last post regarding the forum member who is a US resident and refused a refund after finding the ea unprofitable.

They decided to send me a PM in response to my post which I will share here with respect and fairness to all parties involved.

I have just started trading with this EA since yesterday, I'm also with IC Markets. There does appear to be some minor variation in results, I had a total of 5 trades today (all GU - 4 buys and 1 sell) for a net profit of 3.1 pips (0.08%) i.e. breakeven.

Will continue to monitor and post results here from time to time...


Kiwi Trader,what is your set with the EA,and what is your vps?

I use BeeksFX VPS and am running the "aggressive" set to reflect the vendor's Bestscalper-live1 account.

Yes, a good vps with low latency is essential to these scalping strategies. CNS and Beeks NY both seem great for IC Markets.

Some brokers are happy to let me advertise the fact that they will transfer existing non-IB accounts to HFT Group IB. Other brokers are willing to transfer non-IB clients but would prefer it is not advertised.  ;)

The vendor generally gives several days notice of upcoming news, it certainly isn't a last minute thing.

If that doesn't work, you can always look at a news calendar yourself at the start of the week and plan accordingly, there are very few news events that you have to shut down for.

Hi

Scammed...

Im new here and to forex, but i just want to warn you that BestScalper - has refused my request for a refund with in the 30 days. Saying that my broker (FINFX ECN) is not good for this EA, claiming spreads are to high, which they are not in real life.- being in US this should be one of the best brokers available .... but the EA lost about 10% in 4 weeks trading the real account EURUSD and GBPUSD 4 charts total.

I have a parallel Demo running which is profitable, so i guess another example that demo accounts are roughly a useless gimmick. :-(

- tsatsa

That sucks.........It's not your fault you are restricted in the brokers you can trade with.
You could possibly try the ea on Sensus or maybe Axitrader US?
Of course, you should pursue your legitimate entitlement to a refund via Clickbank who will overrule the vendor and issue a refund.


I am considering purchasing this EA, but I would like to clarify how refund request are handled, before I buy.

If, for ANY reason I want to ask for a refund within 30 days, will it be honored ?  Is refund unconditional ?

Also, the payments just goes through Paypal, I do not see any link with Clickbank ....

Thanks for helping sort this out.

Luca.

Hi all.

I asked to the vendor too, but he didn't reply yet (as usual, their customer care really sucks, it's always in late with the answers and very often their replies are unappropriate, too short and don't match the original question!).

Anyway I tried yesterday adding the new 4 pairs and the EA works fine with them too (despite a warning message in the Experts tab of MT4 that advises that those are unsupported pairs), got two trades on eurcad (winning) and gbpcad (losing).

why would you purchase or proceed with an EA where the developer doesnt even communicate to a level of standard, how will you identify issues and present them while LIVE account is in risk, definitely a NONO for me... I genuinely have no interest in a product if the developer cannot communicate. No matter how GOOD the product is, in most cases!

.. so what I did was add them at 0.5 risk to watch them for a few days to see how they go

this morning so far gbpchf traded for 3-4 points profit and that is it so far.

I really like BS - so hopefully someone gets a definate answer on the extra pairs and we can fine tune this EA even more.

but these new ones I will want to see 1 month of testing before deciding what to do -- ie which ones to keep - which ones to get rid of... and how much % to allocate to them.

As the manual says "It can be used on other time frames and pairs, but others have not been thoroughly tested. In future, we will upgrade new version and setting to support more currency pairs. "  it is better to wait for the updated version to trade pairs other than EURUSD and GBPUSD.

Last week I emailed support asking if the EA can be used on:

1. US bank holidays (after UK session ends)  and
2  during Asian extended trading hours when Australia / Japan banks are closed

I received response (after sending email twice) that it can be used with small lot sizes on US bank holidays but they are not sure about second one.

I tried it on yesterday as US banks closed for July 4, by changing EST Open and Close Hours inputs with different combinations but did not see any pending orders generated.  After some time I disabled EA assuming Thursday's NFP results will be dominant factor on Friday as well.

This EA shows some potential trading other pairs but..............If you look at any closed EU or GU (supported pairs) trades you will see the EA sets a hard T/P of 5 pips. Trade the EA on any other pair (G/Cad, E/Cad etc.) and you will notice the hard T/P is higher. I will personally stick to the vendor recommended settings/pairs until further pairs are officially supported.
Title: Re: Best Scalper

It is making money for me on the other pairs

for example this morning eurcad sold @37 t/p @31.2

but I'm not 100% sold on them as yet .. overall after commissions it is up about 15 points all together.

eur + gbp are really the main money makers for me and my main focus.

well the limit orders

were buy @28.4 and sell @37  with 30 pt stops

hard tp doesn't matter because it will close it before that was 1.4507

The point I am trying to make is that if you compare your trades on unsupported pairs with the trades on the two supported pairs (EU and GU), there is a substantial difference in the hard TP placed by the EA. This indicates to me that there is more involved here than simply trying the EA in it's current form on other pairs. I figure the hard 5 pip T/P placed on EU and GU trades is there for a reason.
Interestingly, the pending orders placed by the EA version on the broker I use have no hard TP or SL. The trade is modified with a hard TP and SL once triggered.

Anyone have same problem ?
Thanks again  8)

Edited: problem solved, probably an incompatibility with others eas and library in the same platfom mt4

this morning I turned off my EA's after I had the gbp buy at 4.2 and t/p @8.8

as I saw it was too volatile for this type of EA to trade.

as far as the extra pairs go

eurcad gbpcad and gbpchf are profitable the others I tried are not.

I like the EA but again -- you have to have to best broker possible or it will be a waste of time for you.

What type of risk you are running?

I had 3% gain (Touch wood) in this month with this EA - IC Market
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on July 25, 2014, 07:03:51 PM
ok

I tested   eurcad gbpcad and gbpchf

all 3 made small profits - but I decided not to continue them - because what tends to happen with these - is they win 4-5 in a row - then the next day they lose 12 pips because $cad or Gbpusd tends to just run in one direction ... so yeah they made a small profit - but it is hardly worth having the extra risk on the days where something goes wrong.

so for me I'm sticking with eurusd and gbpusd.

1 of the few EA's that you can rely on to make you money - if you use it on a broker that suits its style.

We suggest your members use TRUE ECN account type on such Brokers:

Robot works with 4 and 5 digit brokers with low spreads; Since the strategy is a Asian session scalper, it is sensitive with Spread ( EURUSD below 0.7 pips; GBPUSD below 0.8 pips). We strongly suggest you run it with real ECN account. The following list some good ECN brokers we tested. You could tell us if you find other good ones.
BOTFX (PrimeXM Bridge,we use for our account Live1/2/3 )
Thinkforex (algo account type)
FXOpen (ECN account type)
ICMarkets
ROBOForex (Pro ECN account type)
FXPIG (ECN account type)

I don't know about Best scalper because i do not use it, but most part (at least 90%) of scalpers are like this! Broker sensitive and highly market sensitive. They rely on special market conditions which of course will not stand forever. The developers of the famous Number one impulsive scalper, the Steady On FX team, clearly stated on another forum, that scalpers cannot be profitable in the long run (and they was frankly speaking of their product). Only some "scalpers" with higher take profit levels can try to be profitable in the long run, but also with these , when u hit a stop loss, u will need many weeks (if not months) to regain the losses. This is why some traders accepts to risk the whole account using martigrids, not because they are crazy, but because they want more consistent result: you try to double the account before a big DD or a MC will happen. So scalper should be used while they are profitbale, u recover from the amount payed, make some money and after u decide if to continue or not to use it. It can also happen that when most part of the users decide to not use anymore a scalper it start again to be profitable.

BS has had a bad run for about a week

I was up like $200 and now I am only up $40 -- not including rebates it generates -- also I bumped up the % at a bad time it seems.

Been profitable for me overall but not as good lately ... the main thing is this EA requires razor tight spreads so if your broker doesn't have those - then do not buy this EA.

Easywalker has had similar performance drop.

And now this loser ea is only compatible with one broker ahaha...  :

The biggest mistake I'm seeing and hearing with traders who keep going from one trading system to the next that is causing them to lose money each time, is something so simple, I'm surprised they don't notice.
And you could be making the same mistake they are.  The issue is too many traders like you  expect and demand trades daily, if not every  hour.That is just a huge mistake.
My system is Bestscalper work on TRUE ECN account type which get stable profit in every month every day. we especially suggest you use the broker named BOTFX, www.botfx.com (http://www.botfx.com), it is really ECN/STP broker with tightest spreads from 17 Main BANK and Liquidity providers, no scalper limitation, stop level value is ZERO. My BS EA get great performance on BOTFX, you can look into the

myfxbook link:

http://www.myfxbook.com/members/Bestscalper/bestscalper-live3-botfx/989023 (http://www.myfxbook.com/members/Bestscalper/bestscalper-live3-botfx/989023)

As the good cooperation ship with BOTFX, the broker will give the biggest gift to traders, from now on if you open live accoun t in BOTFX and deposit 3000 USD or more fund, BOTFX will pay your new bill for Bestscalper EA.


Enough said,
I removed this ea from my account, it is a waste of time now ... >:( and the vendor is mocking from us !
I have a true ecn (ic markets) and this ea is a killer account day after day, no i don't want another  broker to prove that he is a loser ...  ::)

As mentioned in an earlier post: These ea's are very broker sensitive to start off with. Add to that the fact that they are coded to trade small retracements during a narrow time window of low volatility, thin liquidity and (on some brokers) spreads that widen significantly during the Asian session and it's easy to see how a small change in market behaviour can have a detrimental affect to profitability and performance. It's not just Best Scalper. EasyWalker, FMNS and I am sure, other Asian scalper ea's have suffered since the end of summer period and with the increase in volatility. Compare this to the performance recently of Keltner ea that trades mini breakouts and has done very well during this time.

I traded Best Scalper on a few brokers and monitored the profit or loss generated on each pair via the HUD on chart. It is even easier now as latest version deducts broker commissions whereas earlier versions did not. After a reasonable period of time, I remove the ea from the pair(s) that are not profitable on any particular broker.
At this point in time I have also removed the ea from trading due to the poor performance apart from one instance.
If you trade it on IC Markets with the discounted commission rate, try running on default recommended 2 hour trading window on EU pair only. It is still doing well for me.

My two cents on Best Scalper:

I have been demo trading this EA for the past three weeks; using Pepperstone Edge. Although I am not getting as good results as Donna's account, I am pleased with the Monthly 5.79% gain thus far, with a low 3.76% DD: I could attribute this difference in the fact that I am using a demo account and the different broker, but none the less, for me, these are satisfactory results.

I will report back when I go live.

Hello, Donna.

I have been analyzing Best Scalper though your posted myfxbook and have noticed the following:

1- Magic number 20000, yield:
Monthly: 9.76%, dd:1.70%

2- Magic number 303030, yields:
Monthly: 2.54%, dd: 1.13%

3- Magic number 787878, yields
Monthly: 11.52%, dd: 2.54%

4- Magic number 987654, yields:
Monthly: .15%, dd: 2.30%

I think I am going to increase my risk/lot size, for Magic numbers EUR/USD (20000) and GBP/USD (787878) for a better return: The reason for the better return seems to be with the earlier entry and longer stay into the market with the first system (16:00-18:00h) rather than (17:00-18:00h) for the second set. How about you?

Just as I decided last week, to increase my lot size slightly, with BS, one would have the probability of something going wrong, it did.

At about 2:00 EST (Canada), I heard the audible sound coming from my MT4 platform; trades were being activated. When I checked it out, Best Scalper was at work: This was not supposed to take place until 14 hours later during the Asian session. I soon realized what had happened:

During reboot of my MT4 platforms ( I have several running), the autGMT (AutoTime), on the EA or the platform was not in sink. I checked over at Donna's live myfxbook of Best Scalper later on during the day and no trades had been initiated.

This is a caution to all users, to check the auto time updates when their VPS provider calls for a weekend reboot for maintenance; as it was in my case.

It's been a hard call for me staying out of the market all these many days but after losing my account to the first round of French elections and "the gap", blowing through the stop/loss, of my manual trades, now I am being "paranoid careful". :P

Hello. I tested bestscalper for a little more than two months. Below are the results on myfxbook.

http://www.myfxbook.com/members/pipmenow/bestscalperic/1939399

My results were mixed.  It is a good scalper. The reason why I stopped it is because of the low pip count. It just seemed like a lot of effort for a few pips.

Hello, pipmenow.

I am surprised at the high dd ratio, relative the gain but from what you can see Donna is trading a much higher lot size relative to investment size: The developers do advise to keep the lot size high; don't forget this is a scalper and it's in and out in a matter of minutes. If you look at the advanced stats in myfxbook, in your account and compare them to that of Donna's account, they are pretty well the same: EUR (75%), GBP(71%) compared to your's, EUR (75%), GBP(69%). We can also see that March 9-16th, in your account, there was some drop, but not available in Donna's account because it became active a little later.Also don't forget you are trading a demo account, which might be a little slower in execution, although I didn't find much of a difference when I was trading the demo version myself: We need a longer period of testing to give a fair evaluation of Best Scalper's performance or any other EA.

Attached my setfiles here, but they are just the recommended settings with risk mid-way between his high and low recommendations.

Looking at the spreadsheet you posted, Tyler, it looks like some of the trades are at different times to mine and some trades were missed. Can't think of why this might be but i do know that asian session scalpers produce some of the most variable results out of all EA's, but sticking with it through a few hundred trades should (in theory) even it out, unless there is some VPS/settings issue. It might be worth contacting the seller; some EA's purposely don't make identical trades due to their programming.

Hello, Oneplus. (Interesting point)

I don't think saving on the swap will restrict the broker somehow adding some other charge to make up for their loss; it would be interesting to see. Keep us posted.

I was right!

I contacted Pepperstone to which I have an Edge3 account. After chatting with the rep, I discovered an Islamic account was available to me, despite the fact that I live in a non-Islamic country, not under Sharia Law, as the rep claimed. However, when I tried to open the account, I noticed that there was no IB commission payable to such accounts as I use with PayBackFX run by myfxbook. According to the rep, a commission is available only to "generic" IB's. I am not sure, however, if overall, given the frequency of trades that scalpers do, if it is worth it? Another charge that is added is for trades that last more than 2 days, in that case, they add what is called, "an admin fee". So in summary, you gain on one end and you lose on the other hand.. nice try.  :P

I have swap free accounts in XM and ICMarkets. It was easy because of my name and the country I live in.

For ICMarkets I asked them to put me under the same IB I have for my other accounts. They did the same and the commissions are identical in SWAP free and normal accounts. Both are ECN accounts.

I was trying to get ECN swap free accounts in Pepperstone but they told me that they only offer normal swap free accounts and not an ECN accounts.

Like Donna's account, yesterday, I had losses, except in my case "both" systems were activated, which meant 2- EUR/USD, 2-GBP/USD, trades went into loss. Did anyone else experience double the loss?

Hello, namrfigk.

I don't know if you are aware but Donna is running Best Scalper live (See forum test accounts - https://www.myfxbook.com/members/donnaforexreal/best-scalper/2035046 ) with the same broker and should be able to give you more details on this.

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donnaforex on May 16, 2017, 07:49:03 PM
Just had a look at my account and since the beginning i have paid 12.13 in swap, which is around 9.5% of my current profit figure (but note, the profit figure is after swap has been paid, so still a good profit!). There have been both positive and negative swaps due at various times but yes, swap is a consideration here but no way around it unless you want to sacrifice something else (pay a higher spread, higher commission, other type of fee, etc).

You could try not trading the EA on a Wednesday, or switch it to taking only +ve swap trades only on Wednesdays. You'd sacrifice a few trades by doing this which long term should equal not so much return, but it does chop the risk down a bit by skipping these ones. I've attached a screenshot for any newbies following this to show where this can be done, obviously check with your broker to see where positive swaps apply as all brokers apply it differently and some even end up charging for swaps that should be positive!

Depends where you live. Australia and Asia is Monday morning. US is Sunday night. Regardless, it does not trade the first session of the week.
If your running the same set file for a couple of months and it's trading Monay morning then something is wrong.

I set the EST Offset manually as sometimes the EA does not calculate the offset accurately.

Hello, donbon2.

I am surprised that you are getting good execution with Amazon EC2, I only use it to run my demo accounts; out of which center are you running it, N. Virginia or some EU center? The main VPS upon which I run all my live accounts is with ForexVPS, which is partnered with Pepperstone.

BS is still up 20% for the year despite the recent setback .. you can add you own newsfilter if that bothers you.

I have reuters eikon so I have no problems with knowing what is coming out.

If you want short term fast scalping for 2 hours a day then this is the best it gets .. otherwise then you look at longer term strategies that run both hot and cold with different risks.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on June 05, 2017, 09:13:54 PM
you take my custom set - this is a range strategy and while it has made 20-30% in a month it is in 15% drawdown as markets sit at one end of the range for a day to a week .. so overall works well but you have to sit in drawdown.

the numbers are high because the account is really underfunded from the beginning - so should get more normal in 3-6 months.

most people hate to see that size drawdown -- but different strategies read differently in these things.

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on June 06, 2017, 10:09:23 PM
my custom one is one I paid a coder to make for me - it isn't for sale

as you see in my signature - I use alot of EAS I bought - which are all scalpers pretty much in one way or the other - powerflow isnt but I have only a small amount of money running that on NZDCAD.

on the one I made it trades 8 pairs    EUR  AUD  NZD  CAD  AUDNZD AUDCAD AUDYEN EURAUD   ... it is purely range based .. but as you see the monthly returns are high so far but DD is also much higher than the others.

you can't have it both ways - high return low DD .. so in my opinion it is probably good to have both types and look to develop your own EA which is different than what other people are using.

As far as any criticism of BS I think it is overblown -- the thing cant print money everyday but look at its returns over the last 12 months - few in any EA's match it.

Best of luck.

Do be fooled, if the market had spiked the other way then the account would have lost 50%, it was a lucky break. The EA has a set TP but because of market speed it went past, that will probably never happen again.
I find it sad that the vendor keeps loosing money with his own accounts and then shuts them down. I believe it is because he is too cheap to get a VPS for it.

In all fairness to the people behind Best Scalper, "which I have tried and lost a sum", and other EA's, timing is important: If you activated Best Scalper last month as I did, you were in bad luck and would have been frightened off, "as I was". I think the main issue here is lot sizing. The vendor recommends large lot sizes to justify the small gains, each time but if you have a bad streak of losses, the large lot sizes can become very painful to watch.

Although I have dropped using this EA from my bag of EAs, I would say that the service is very responsive and the EA, is worth considering.

I will also give you a tip that I noticed -- before BS is due to trade I check the range - if the market is going sideways so that it is barely trading I disable the EA - as it works best when the market trades in a 10-20 point band .. otherwise what happens is the bot can't get out and early Asia pushes the market against it... and next thing you know you get a loss.

Your EA doesn't work on 2 brokers, so you want to try on another broker?

How many brokers before you realise maybe it might just be the EA that's the problem?

I use IC Markets with an amazon ec2 north virginia vps - and while donna trades 4 charts I trade just 2 .. but my trades are always the same as hers for the same charts .. so I know all is well .. if your getting trades not working then something is wrong as it should not be happening.

the only difference between my returns and donnas is due to me switching off over news and avoiding the slow ranges like yesterday which cause the loss days - but thats just me looking through the numbers and her staying true to her test.

seems like half the people are happy with BS and half are unhappy.

personally I wake up every morning to check the market as to whether to let it trade or not ... after Fed no .. speeches no .. tiny range no .. I find this removes alot of the loss days and gives more profits -- but I know people like set and forget which perhaps this is not.

you can try easywalker - that is another good scalper for Asia -- doesnt make as much as this - but you cant run both as they do trade in a similar style.

Hi

Just started using Best Scalper on an LMax account/Beeks VPS and wonder if any of the regulars here can tell me if it has a cut off point for closing trades?

Last night I had 3 trades that closed at different times- pending orders were closed off at the end of the "trade window" but open trades closed some time later

Any help would be appreciated

Many thanks

It is not a trade copier.

It will open a pending orders so you should enter the trade as soon as the price reached the pending order entry point. you can check the set files Donna shared on the topic to get an identical trades as her.

"Hi, I see you have been bestscalper for a while? Any good in the long run?"

Best Scalper is one of the best EAs I have bought - but you have to like short term scalpers and understand what they do and what they don't

also I vary the risk and turn it on and off according to the ranges - as some work better than others.

finally I was asked this as well

Just want to know how I can register in:
News - USD99 a month (FX Only) Thomson Reuters Eikon (if your trading fulltime or large sums - it is the best product out there for trading from home)

you email them for a free trial - then after that for FX only it is USD99 a month -- you would be silly not to have this in my opinion.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on August 16, 2017, 08:42:52 AM
what I mean by risk -- is that it has no news filter so you need to watch that for yourself - disabling on fed day etc .. otherwise you could run into problems getting upset with the sl.

anyway for $249 or whatever it is now - it is a steal for what it can do used smartly.

Tried USDCHF for some time but it did not worth it. I did not lose money but the Buy/Sell pending orders was not reached at least 3 of 5 days. So I am only used it with the recommended pairs.

I am working on an EA/Indicator to disable/enable BS based on the range and news. I will see if I can get it done within the next couple weeks. still not sure what is the time to monitor before BS trading session neither if we want to skip high impact news days or only if the news are happening on or around the trading session. Any ideas regarding are welcomed.

Sorry to take a backward step with the discussions but when I purchased I never got set up instructions just the EX4 and DLL

Otherwise I see the main thing to do is turn if off for big news items

You can download the sets Donna uses from this link:

keep in mind that Donna keep the EA running even in news events.

To install the EA just add ex4 into the experts folder and the dll on library folder and you are good to go.

thanks for helping :)
My set files are halfway between the two suggested risk settings in the manual, sort of a 'medium' risk though it's worth noting that this is still 30%!! To give a proper baseline i run the EA at all times, no matter what, and would suggest that anyone reading this does similarly unless you really know what you are getting yourself into (it's easy to start 'chasing your tail' and lose out to trade psychology, something that is the major benefit of trading a fully automated system and that we don't have to worry about so much).
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on August 20, 2017, 11:42:57 PM
Yeah there is 2 ways of using this

* Donnas way where you leave it on at all times and take the good with the bad.

* Disable after major news events and before early morning speeches  (this is what I do)

so be aware of your risk level so it matches up.

Also what I found as well - is some mornings when the range is decreasing I disable it - because what happens is it gets stuck in a trade and the market starts moving against it and it takes a loss ... so I make sure the market is moving up and down and the range is decent -- as on those days you can get 4-5 profitable trades compared to getting stuck in one trade that ends up losing as it cant get out ... anyway this is all food for thought.

The mornings where it makes the 4-5 winning trades are the ones your account grows really quick with.

There does appear to be an error with the stop loss settings. If you check back even on Donna's account you will notice that periodically a stop at double the normal size is used; in fact a stop of 91 pips was set just today on the Cable. A 10% risk all of a sudden becomes 20% for no apparent reason. This is not explained in the user manual and is not considered when the lot size is chosen. I suspect that most users are unaware of this potential ticking time bomb which if hit will cause a far larger loss than anticipated.
Another weakness is the the fact that the lot size on the two pairs traded is the same when the risk is set the same however, the distance of the stop is not the same and therefore the actual risk on each pair is different. Too maintain the same risk on each pair you would actually have to set the the EURUSD pair to a higher risk setting since it has a default 32 pip SL compared to the GBPUSD of 41.
Although I didn't directly answer your question I hopefully shed some light on some things to be aware.

Mainly there is two ways to set the risk. Either by specify the Lot size to trade or the % to risk. I think in these set files donna is using the later where she uses 20% as the risk factor.

I have just one chart per pair and 20% risk setting on EURUSD which will allow for about 5% loss. And I have 15% risk on GBPUSD which will also allow about 5% loss at full stop. This way I have the same potential actual loss on each pair at full stop (but double that if you get one of them inexplicable 91 pips stop loss hits).

Hi guys,
was going to take YANS EA but I think this is more robust and more history, plus $800 for yans i think is a bit extortianate for retail user.
However with commissions at $5.5 (after rebate) in IC markets it erodes a lot of profit.

I can get $2 RT at other brokers with similar spreads in Tradeview, Divisa etc.
My question is, does it behave same in other brokers ?
I had air mechanic and it was totally unaligned to vendor in Divisa, not even close.
Lower commission is one thing so long as you can align trades to vendor, so important in scalp bots.

thanks guys.

This EA is quite broker-sensitive, you'll definitely get different results vs IC who have the best conditions for this EA that i've seen. However, with your commissions being so much lower you might end up averaging out roughly the same in the long term. Only one way to find out...

Also would like to add my endorsement to the recommendation in @donbon2 signature line for good news outlet for professional traders.

TR Eikon is actually administered and managed partially by a financial professional friend of mine here in Hong Kong TR and I love what they do with it.  It really is superior and sometimes even better than Bloomberg terminal.

Check out my scalping stats with the links I've provided in my signature line below.  I scalp and target 10 to 15 and have hit my target average over 7 months so far with my exceptional trade strategy developed by scrutinising price action on 5 or 6 pairs over 14 years.

it really just price averages -- I run on XM and FortFS ... it cranks out fairly stable profits every month but even I don't use but a small amount of my capital on it.

for some one who wants hands off - nothing extravagant then it is good for that --- drawdowns tend to be max 30-40% on 0.01 per 1k  or 1 on a cent account but be aware this is one of those EAS to withdraw profits from in case at some point the account blows... so you can refund and start over.

it also has equity stop -- so if your account is 1000 and you only want to risk 20% per position -- then once it is down $200 then it will close all at that loss and start over or you can have it wait a few days before starting up again.  (I leave mine set at 99%)

(these cent brokers offer bonuses from time to time - perfect EA to use those on before risking your own capital)

if you want someone elses opinion on EAs who has tried a bunch look through Corre's posts ... he is really helpful and can give you an unbiased opinion as well.

we both tried other EAs that turned out not so good as well... so live and learn .. but I am happy with what I have stated here.

Attached my setfiles here, but they are just the recommended settings with risk mid-way between his high and low recommendations.

Looking at the spreadsheet you posted, Tyler, it looks like some of the trades are at different times to mine and some trades were missed. Can't think of why this might be but i do know that asian session scalpers produce some of the most variable results out of all EA's, but sticking with it through a few hundred trades should (in theory) even it out, unless there is some VPS/settings issue. It might be worth contacting the seller; some EA's purposely don't make identical trades due to their programming.

hi donna.
just got this ea.
you are using 4 charts?
according to manual just EURUSD15min and GBP 15min,,,,,2 charts
thanks

2 x EURUSD and 2 x GBPUSD ... this is what the seller recommends in their guide. You need a second chart for each pair to run both sets of recommended settings.

Carney speaks in a few hours then 5 hours before BS starts tomorrow morning -- I have disabled now and will wait to make sure the market is stable in the morning before switching on.

I know Donna says to run no matter what - but I prefer to be bit cautious as this is such a good EA - like to keep my profits and give it the best chance for success.

recently don markets have settled pretty reliable late ny to asia session.

none or less, better save then sorry no question.

the event you really need to be carefull is fomc this wednesday since its late in the ny session.

i sure expect fireworks on that one and hope to make a load of green pips :)

actually don we shall have a good fall, since they central banks are finally shifting i expect more major trendy moves, like cad and g more recently.

so all trend breakout strategies should do very well till 15t dec. scalpers of course dont benefit from that.

but best scalper has mastered these events quite well in the past = big moves.

Hi everybody, I'm want to open an IC Markets account for using Best Scalper on it, in a little account (500/600 euros), do you suggest standard or true ecn account? I have always had standard accounts with no commissions on other brokers but probably with this ea is better the true ecn account. Thank you and sorry for my poor english.

Hi guys! My first post after lurking for a long time.. ;)

I'm running BestScalper on ICMarkets Live10 with the settings from the manual. This morning it opened trades while the author says it shouldn't open trades on a Monday. It also opened the trades outside of the set time-settings. I also run this EA on a demo-acc with IG where it didn't open any trades.

Anyone else got the same?

Hey everyone

I just wondered the following. Does the GMT offset need to be set for IC markets? Trades have been opening at the right time for me and in line with Donna's My FXBook. Otherwise the GMT Offset would be 3 right?

Why would I get trades duplicating in the second hour? I can see the logic if you have 2 of each GBP USD and EUR USD running on 1600 - 1800 and 1700 - 1800 but I don't see Donna's trades doubling up. It's ok when they hit TP or break even of course  ;D

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on October 01, 2017, 10:44:08 AM
You need to set it in relative to your broker.
IC Markers has their timing as GMT+3.
But you need to set the EST Offset comparing to broker time.
So EST offset is 7.
Broker time to GMT = 3
GMT to EST = 4
Broker time to EST = 7
If Broker time changed back to GMT+2 then the offset will be 6.

Too much talking for a simple question :D

Hi All,
I want to ask a questions about Best Scalper. I've bought it and run it on 2x EURUSD charts and 2x GBPUSD chart. I'm also using Donna's setfiles, but set the risk to 15. My broker is also IC Markets.
I found that my trades are a bit difference with Donna's trades where for example my 2x EURUSD trades are both closed at the same price where her 2x EURUSD trades are both closed at difference price. I wonder if there's an error in my setting and anyone could help?

Thanks a lot for your help.

There's nothing 'special' in my setup. I'm not even using a Forex specific VPS service, just a cheap windows VPS.  I wish there was a special button though, i'd add it to ALL of my test accounts, i'd create a load of crappy EA's and get everyone buying them then run off to my private island.... alas, i'm sat here on a grizzly wednesday morning in the UK hunting for the magic button that everyone claims i have, and more burnt accounts from other people's products than i can count :)

Thanks a lot for your help.

If you'd like me to check your settings i'm happy to do so, just email me your setfiles and i'll take a look (admin@donnaforex.com) .

There are numerous reasons why trades might not be replicated closely or identical to other accounts. It's common for some EA's to be sat on the same broker, same VPS, side by side running the same settings and still get different results. Sometimes this can be down to slippage, a fast moving market, or it could be down to the way the EA is programmed. I don't know the internal workings of Best Scalper to say for sure, but here's an example of why this might occur:

Scenario 1: EA is set to trade at 5pm every day, on the dot.
In this case, you should get replicated trades that are very close to each other across multiple accounts

Scenario 2: EA is set to trade at 5pm every day but determines which direction to trade based on whether it is receiving an 'odd count' tick or an 'even count' tick. In this case, depending on what history you have in your MT4, completely changes the outcome. You'll always have a trade at the same time as everyone else but some people will get a buy and some will get a sell.  Obviously this is a ridiculous strategy, but it is an example of how a difference can arise.

Scenario 3: EA looks at a set of indicators on a chart and trades after indicator x and y cross
As we saw in scenario 2, it's possible that everyone has different history in their MT4. You might even have faulty ticks in your history. Different levels of historical data in your MT4 combined with some very sensitive indicators can and will make trades that vary across accounts. Your indicators might not 'cross over' at the same level as someone else. EA's don't get their 'crossover' alert from some central database, they are calculating in real time from what is in front of them on your chart.

There are more ways that i haven't gone into here, but i hope this helps partly explain the 'why is my EA trading differently?' problem. It's rarely a good idea to compare trade by trade. What SHOULD happen if the EA is stable and robust is that you should be able to take 500 trades of yours, compare it against 500 trades of mine, and see a similar overall result. Numbers are your friend here and you really do need to look at a minimum 100 trades.

Finally, it's only really the best scalper seller that can say what might be going on here, they know what they have coded into their EA and how it functions. Examining each function should make the answer clear. It is even possible that the EA gets coded to purposely trade slightly differently across accounts (this is, after all, an Asian session scalper - anyone that has been around for years here will note the results when you get too many thousands of people all scalping the asian session at identical moments, the retail market couldn't handle it!).

as with all scalpers there is a bunch of possibilities..............latency, server just a whole bunch.

fx germany for example

his account runs 1000 times better then vendors accounts, and one would think the creator knows best how to run his creation.

donnas account also runs darn good, but vendors clearly do not.

Afaik the vendor doesn't have any reference account, he uses Donna and fxgermany, which is reflecting my trades very well (fxgermany), as someone said above, I also think Donna's account is different, I really can't say what and frankly I don't care so much, but sure is quite strange that she is even in gain for the month, while all accounts I saw are in negative.

It is likely that the vendor is too cheap to pay for a vps and is always getting killed by latency. Also, it is fair to conclude that the vendor wouldn't be selling any copies if it had not been for forexgermany finding a combination that works. The money the vendor has squandered on 2nd rate brokers going bust could have paid for the vps by now. Also he tried trading on Sundays, tried usdcad and usdchf all failed and were made worse trading from home possibly.

In this case, depending on what history you have in your MT4, completely changes the outcome. You'll always have a trade at the same time as everyone else but some people will get a buy and some will get a sell.  Obviously this is a ridiculous strategy, but it is an example of how a difference can arise.

Scenario 3: EA looks at a set of indicators on a chart and trades after indicator x and y cross
As we saw in scenario 2, it's possible that everyone has different history in their MT4. You might even have faulty ticks in your history. Different levels of historical data in your MT4 combined with some very sensitive indicators can and will make trades that vary across accounts. Your indicators might not 'cross over' at the same level as someone else. EA's don't get their 'crossover' alert from some central database, they are calculating in real time from what is in front of them on your chart.

There are more ways that i haven't gone into here, but i hope this helps partly explain the 'why is my EA trading differently?' problem. It's rarely a good idea to compare trade by trade. What SHOULD happen if the EA is stable and robust is that you should be able to take 500 trades of yours, compare it against 500 trades of mine, and see a similar overall result. Numbers are your friend here and you really do need to look at a minimum 100 trades.

Finally, it's only really the best scalper seller that can say what might be going on here, they know what they have coded into their EA and how it functions. Examining each function should make the answer clear. It is even possible that the EA gets coded to purposely trade slightly differently across accounts (this is, after all, an Asian session scalper - anyone that has been around for years here will note the results when you get too many thousands of people all scalping the asian session at identical moments, the retail market couldn't handle it!).

Thanks Donna. I just email you my set files.
I've also emailed the best scalper seller and waiting for their reply.

Thanks a lot.

Small difference is normal, i use also a Scalper on three different mt4, same Account, on a low speed VPS, on a High Speed VPS and on my Home PC,

connection Speed and the Speed of the PC make a Difference. Has nothing to do with the EA.

roeckert,

Hehe, there is a lot to say about mt4 and Brokers, we can write some Books about it.  A Sample , i have a Breakout Scalper with  92% Win Trades on Admiraal Markets, but another Scalper have only looser Trades. so, for them i have to search another Broker, but now no time.

the EA uses pending orders so there shouldn't be a difference only in the closing where I notice sometimes a small difference to Donna.

I think it depends which version you use - I was using an older version and updated to newer one - FG I think he said he didnt update to the newer version ... to me doesnt matter my trades match 99% to Donnas and sometimes Im better so all is good for me.

when I read these comments about people needing Donnas setfiles - makes me wonder because this is by far the simplest EA to operate as you only need to change like 2 things and there are very few inputs

Post by: donbon2 on October 04, 2017, 09:04:46 PM
so I just checked Donnas pending orders to my pending orders 100% the same .. it is only the execution that can be different which most times it is the same.

The closed trades for both GBPUSD are at the same time/prices whereas Donna's trades are closed at a different time/prices, but the open time/prices are similar.
Just curious with the close time/price, it's weird, same EA but different. :)

I'm lost on this one - for the life of me can't figure why you guys aren't matching - when I look at Forex Germany and Donnas my differences are so small  ... but this I put down to the volume when the order activates it takes the price for the volume.

I turned it off for this morning - doesn't seem worth it to me sitting right at bottom of the overnight range.

Also I am just going to run the 2 hour one and not the one hour one as well ... just with markets trending more not going to play around with adding extra positions - in case we get a stupid move one of these mornings.

I think forexgermany only run 2x charts (1x EURUSD and 1x GBPUSD) at 16:00-18:00 EST.
For trades open at 16:00-18:00 EST, my open time/prices and close time/prices are similar to donna's and forexgermany's.

I am only running the one chart/timeframe for each as per my signature

for EUR

donna  318 334
me 304 333

slight difference here favoring me this time -- but this is how I see it - one trade she is slightly better and the next I'm slightly better -- but keep in mind my volume is much larger than hers - so I think that is what causes the differences... as those levels trigger the trade and it takes the offer or bid when triggered.

someone else mentioned global prime maybe better than ICM - certainly interested to look further at that.

For me Pepperstone is not always performing better. But when IC is doing great PS is doing better than IC. However when it is a normal day for BS then IC is better for me.

Keep in mind that I have an ECN Swap free account in IC, however cannot get the same from PS. Who trade BS knows that swap fees can eat some of your profit.

So the summary:
1- If you cannot get a swap free account on IC then PS will be almost the same as IC. On best days PS will do better.
2- The trades are not identical on PS and IC. I think because of the liquidity providers.
3- PS is better in execution and Slippage.


Would you like sharing with us your experience of using BS in pep ?
is it better than ICM in term of profitability ?

I hope all are doing well this week.

I am running BS in IC and PS and this week both brokers' results are great.

Thanks for sharing.
From my experience, even the same broker, ICM, BS performs in a slightly different way.
Do you mind telling me how to open a swap free ICM ?

For me Pepperstone is not always performing better. But when IC is doing great PS is doing better than IC. However when it is a normal day for BS then IC is better for me.

Keep in mind that I have an ECN Swap free account in IC, however cannot get the same from PS. Who trade BS knows that swap fees can eat some of your profit.

So the summary:
1- If you cannot get a swap free account on IC then PS will be almost the same as IC. On best days PS will do better.
2- The trades are not identical on PS and IC. I think because of the liquidity providers.
3- PS is better in execution and Slippage.

I am living in an Islamic/Arabian Country and it is easy to do so for me by just asking the support to make my account swap-free/Islamic.

Some users here tried but because they are not living in an Islamic/Arabian country the process is harder. I think if your name is Arabian name it will be easy as well.

In PS, they don't have swap free ECN account and BS will not work with standard accounts as far as I know. It is spread sensitive.

good day to all.

some time i turn back into the forum.

i am a new customer of this EA from about one month.
i am very skeptical with this EA, but loking at some LIVE account the bot seems to have very good result... especially on donnaforex account...

and regard this, i am curious to ask to donnaforex why i don't see in the account the LOSS of 9pips the last session of Best Scalper (my account take the loss trade)

in fact, the account of donna seems the only one with very few LOSS trade...

I never had such a long interruption on my VPS in years I'm using it from different providers, you've been so lucky to get the power down exactly when BS got a so hard hit (-9.4 pips) tonight...

Yep, I'm using a non-forex VPS which i've discussed before, Hostek in this case, and my EA's don't autostart so i had to notice they were down to put them back up.. and since i sleep at night things get missed. If you are following any of my other myfxbooks you will notice that a number of them were not updating overnight last night for this reason.

If you'd like an investor password access to my account i can give one to you so you can check.. message me privately if you'd like this and you can login through ICMarkets direct yourself and take a look at my history. Will change password after the weekend however to stop trade copying.

If you think 9 pips is a huge loss then you have your risk set inappropriately... 9 pips is nothing, you might want to check this and readjust risk if your loss spooked you. Trade psychology is very real here even with autotrading.

OK i decided to post investor access publicly.. here you go:

Server: Live05 from IC Markets. (btw, DON'T use IP addresses to login to investor access accounts, some scammers use fake servers which is why i'm not providing an IP here, go to ICMarkets and download MT4 direct from them and login to live05 server this way you know you are connecting to the broker and not to something else i have provided).

Account: 622694
Pass: dfxOCT17

I'll be changing investor access login on Monday so it won't work after this. The reason for this is to stop trade copying. If anyone accessing this can leave a note on the forum to say that it does indeed work and they were able to access my account i'd be grateful as i don't appreciate being accused of lying purely because i have a single account that is making gains (vs lots of accounts that really aren't).

Also realise that some things really are just what they appear to be - there is not necessarily a conspiracy around every corner, though it does pay to be skeptical ;).  If there's anything else you think i can do to prove that this is a real account let me know, i'm happy to oblige even unreasonable requests, so try me..

Hey Donna, thanks for your insight account look
It's working fine and I have access to your account.
Nice results!!! ;)

one thing I noticed is the absence of canceled orders in the period May till September 14th
Which means that all pending orders were executed.
From September 14 I see a lot of canceled orders.
Was there a release change around  mid September?

I haven't done an update on BS as far as i can remember, certainly nothing in September. I'm not sure why things changed after this date. I'm trying to figure out if it's possible for cancelled pending orders to *not* show in account history, if it's maybe something the broker can set their end and which changed at that date? - afraid to say this is something i don't know for sure so i'm trying to guess... as far as i've been aware over the years pending orders have always showed in the past. I'm never around when BS trades as it's night my time so haven't observed trades directly. I'll ask IC about it...

Title: Best Scalper Stop Loss
Post by: bearnakedbull on October 22, 2017, 01:03:33 AM
 I just want to remind people that occasionally the stop loss is huge on this EA. Donna's account had an 82 pip stop on eurusd on September 26. Although I haven't seen one of these hit yet, I have to believe it is possible. Seems like a strange thing that it does this but there it is. I do wish the vendor would improve a few things and this is just one of the few things I would like addressed. Another would be going only in the direction of positive swap on Wednesday's since there is not much left after getting charged for being on the wrong side of the carry trade.

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on October 22, 2017, 02:14:04 PM
eventually it will hit SL.

I think the theory behind this EA is that the SL will only hit when there is a really big move in the market at the quit time (Asian trading time).

Some of BS users will just stop the EA when there is a news event which can make a big move in the EA trading time. You can do that as well to skip hitting the full SL.

I can see that the trades will be kept open till 4 AM GMT or till it reach a point where the EA will decide that this is the smallest lost the trade can be closed with within the the set internal trading time.

I think this EA can be improved to reflect our concerns but for some reason the developer is not listening. In his opinion the EA is working with small issues which he has a workarounds for it. Maybe he is not the original developer and he does not want to touch the code! I am not sure.

I sent an email about the problem of Auto GMT time when you start the EA in the weekend and his response was : either star the EA on the weekdays or use a manual entry for this.

I will not stop using this EA because it is working for me. As soon as it stop working I will look for something else.

Hello, alaaili.

I agree with you that the SL is huge and very dangerous. That is to also note that predictable news events may have the user stop the EA during these critical periods of time but that is only half of the story: When unpredictable news events do hit and they are usually major, nothing can stop you from total catastrophe unless you have another EA monitoring DD and closes all "in time"; that is if "in time" is possible.

I stopped using BS, a few months back and I am envious of those people who are making money; "for now".  :P

Pretty much any scalper at all is dangerous, but that's kind of true of any strategy in a market where we're playing with leverage of several hundred times. Basically what you have to keep in mind with a scalper strategy is that the stop loss can be hit multiple times in a row. Scalpers offer very poor risk/reward ratios because if they didn't, they would just hit stops more often.

All in all, scalpers are some of my favourite strategies, but I think you have to be psychologically prepared for serious losses along a road to greater gains. One of my scalpers takes 7.5% risk per trade which is mad crazy high, but I'm anticipating heavy losses at some point and am simply trying to maximize gain/withdrawals in the meantime. So long as you have enough capital, you can pretty easily navigate those big downturns that are frankly inevitable with scalpers.

I don't own this one, but I think I might take it and play with it. I was looking at the forexgermany myfxbook account too and it's madly impressive. Looking at an average trade hold time of just 54 minutes is good, and the outlier cases being only 5 hours or so isn't the worst I've seen by a long shot.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on October 22, 2017, 10:48:58 PM
someone had mentioned Pepperstone vs IC Markets ... having used this EA extensively on both my experience is IC Markets is better.

Pepperstone fails to execute orders that are executed on IC Markets ... so if you have a buy at 55 - it will get done on IC but doesn't mean Pepperstone will

On GBP IC Markets has a slightly tighter spread so gives you more chance to get in and out - trades you would miss at Pepperstone.

Overall for me IC is better by quite a long way.

Also Global Prime was mentioned as another one - certainly willing to listen if people have good experiences with that one.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: bearnakedbull on October 23, 2017, 02:38:28 AM
I really do believe that if forexgermany had not found the right combination for the ea, broker and a vps that there would be no sales. Look at  the way the vendor can't even keep a good account running because he keeps choosing 2nd rate brokers and probably runs the ea from home. He would never have known that this thing can actually run profitably if left to his own efforts. So I would also venture to say that it was a work in progress or perhaps something he would have given up on but lucky for him, someone else found success where he couldn't and now he is reaping some rewards but not really moving forward and adapting or fixing the little issues and bugs.

how about you look at how the things trades and help yourself a little.

for example you could do this

Tuesday 10% Wednesday 10% Friday 10 %  1600 -  1800
Thursday 1705 - 1800  5%  to avoid damaging rollover.

also look at the market on the days it does 5 trades and compare that to the days it trades 1-2 trades and take 2-3 hours to exit and disable on the days that do not suit it.

otherwise then you have to do what Donna does - ride out the swings and not complain about the bad days.

I traded for banks for a long time and have much FX experience -- it is very hard to pass that experience onto other people because our backgrounds are so different.

FX is my hobby now - in terms of using EAs to make money - as I no longer enjoy long hours of manual trading myself .. did it for too long and it doesn't interest me very much.

For BS I would do as I said above in my other post and also disable after news or if the range is bad for it -- this will help drawdown and you may miss a profit here or there but will be much more stable ... this is by far the best scalper there is -- you will make money if you use a good broker and a reliable VPS.

I would buy momentum h1 tomorrow and set that up - this will trade trends and use profits from BS to add more M H1 accounts -- this will grow your money fast.

This gives you a scalper and a trend trader -- cant ask for better than that.

If EA's are your thing then this is the way to go -- $250 for BS - $290 for M H1 -- best value on the market... you can make this back in 1-2 months if your balance is 2k or more.

SFE is the other one that maybe OK but I don't like its profit and loss swings so need bit more time to watch it.

I always post exactly what I am using in my signature so you can check with that.

PZ Grid is advanced in that you need market knowledge to set the ranges and strat quant that is something you need to know what your doing to get the most out of it.

Best for now.

Got 2 TP for Best scalper last night. I see a lot of pending trades by momentum but so far no trades. Looking good so far.

I'm thinking of doing some signal copying as well. What are your thoughts on that?

I had the USDCHF trades close for +50 but those were opened before you purchased the EA .. same as you have pending orders waiting for volatility to kick in of which there is alot this week.

BS yup good morning today ... as I mentioned I feel very comfortable recommending both these EAs - you will have up and down periods no doubt but they will make money.

If you want to subscribe to signals -- up to you - those have a whole different set of parameters which I can't help you with - as seems to me that most signal providers have very little experience - so one month they do great - next month your in DD and waiting for something good to happen.

My suggestion is to use BS profits and make more M H1 accounts every $500 or $1000 ... this for sure will be stable in the long run - or until another EA comes out that can add value to these 2 and make profits grow faster... and provide diversification as well.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: elmer on October 31, 2017, 04:50:34 AM
Thanks for the advice again.

I'm looking for a long term and stable return and something that I wont get a heart attack on with the DD.

What would you use if you have say a large sum of above 100k to trade? If I see a 10% floating DD it already gives me restless nights. I need something that I can be sure that my account is intact when I wake up in the morning.

You need to be aware of your risk tolerance. This comes with experience. You need to do a due diligence on the strategy. Look at historical live performance and backtests closely. Study the equity curve and drawdown periods. If you cannot stand a 10k DD on a 100k account, then adjust your risk accordingly. If historical data shows 30% DD on default risk - trade at maximum 1/3 default risk. Always adjust your risk to your DD tolerance, not to the prospects of possibly huge gains.

Thanks Anchorpoint. Good advice. I could tolerate much higher DD's on small account but when it comes to a big account, even a DD of 3% makes me uncomfortable.

On a side note, today is Super Thursday, is anyone turning off Best Scalper in anticipation of the news?

Hello, Bonbon2.

I am using Pepperstone, edge and I also have an IC Market account;

1- what difference have you noticed which has led you to choose IC instead of Papperstone for BS?
2- could you make it a point, whenever you disengage/engage BS, to inform us; a lot of members are tracking your lead.
3- would you please also post your .set file (s), on BS.
4- What leverage do you use with IC Markets?

Regards,  :)
HumbleTrader


Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on November 03, 2017, 10:21:14 AM
in my opinion

*ICM is way better than Pepperstone for BS
*leverage on my account is maximum I forget the exact number
*set files - there really is nothing to it .. I use 1600-1800 and 1705-1800 on Thursday - this I posted earlier in the thread .. I don't use the 2 charts per pair like Donna.
*I try to post here when I can when I turn on and off or what causes me to do so ... basically watch what the market does on the days where BS makes 5-6 profitable trades ... and avoid the days where it does just 1 - those are the days you tend to lose .... sometimes I pick it right sometimes not - but I avoid some of the losses as well.

I stand by my long standing call on this EA - it is a steal for the price -- but you must have a VPS and a great ECN broker - and get rebates or reduced commissions via an IB like cashbackforex or some of Donnas Links.

Hello, Atomico, sorry for your loss.

When I started with BS, my luck was in May; have a look what happened in late May, early June. I pulled out right after this dd and have just restarted: I lost almost 4 months of winning trades  :'(

I would closely follow Donnbo2's recommendations and hang in there;  if something goes sour with an EA, Donnbo2, will certainly keep us informed.  :)

The entire concept behind scalpers is that you're entering trades that have a very very poor risk/reward ratio, but in return you get a much higher rate of accuracy. The downside to that is that the drawdown can be significant, but it really is about holding in there, especially if you trade an auto lot kind of situation.

I've seen people cry foul over scalping systems, saying that they just stop working after a while and in some cases that's true, but more often it's just that the systems are in a DD period and return to profitability before too long.

disabled EUR for todays session - GBP only.

there is just no range for EUR - so it makes chance of profit very small -- GBP seems much better bet.

Just want to say one thing .. the market in 2016 compared to 2017 is different -- we have less volatility in the morning and the spreads are wider as less prices come into it - so makes harder to get into a good position than before ... so yep performance is down but it is still doing very well.

To me the secret is to take out these crappy days and save it for the good days where the market is moving enough to trigger 5-6 trades .. this is where profits are made.

It is easy to bash an EA like BS that trades contrary to professional theory of how to make money in FX - but look at the results and compare to so many EA that have blown up or given poor performance and lost money.

I hope the developers update this so on Thursday mornings it only trades in direction of swap - and also introduce a filter that if the range is less than 6 points then cancel orders until it is at least 8 points or more.

Love to see what happens with the canceled orders after September 14th in the next months?
Do they also disappear ow will they stay?

Yep, this will be interesting. As far as i can remember, i have always seen pending orders, but my memory isn't the best and i have a lot of trading accounts on the go for various EA's. Will be watching!

Quick update on this... my MT4 is definitely deleting cancelled orders after a certain time, this is definitely a broker thing, they are disappearing chronologically off my statements as time goes on.

its been good to have the EUR disabled over last few days - I see today Donna is in DD while the GBP has done what I thought it would .. just making money.

you know sometimes I miss out when I disable or restrict the trading hours on Thursdays - but avoiding the larger losses is more important - to keep a nice upward equity curve.

DANGER

I don't know if this has been covered earlier but over the weekend, I had to reboot my server for an update; today, I noticed BS placing orders at noon EST. When I examined this closer, I noticed that the offset time had been changed from 7 hours to three! After reinstalling BS with my own personal settings, it reverted back to the correct 7-hour offset.

I guess Bonbon2, will recommend, EUR/USD remain inactive given the large moves or just let it be... Bonbon2?  :-\

I disabled EUR this morning for the reasons above -- large range closing on the high or low .. as you know it is going to buy as soon as it is allowed to trade .. it is going to struggle to make a profit plus probably losing a swap as well.

GBP is better as GBPYEN is going higher as well - so shouldn't break the low and can trade up a little - so seems based on probabilities - GBP is the only one for me today.

Not always right of course but prefer to be safe than roadkill.

Wrong call guys  ;)

Actually, I think it was the right call; we didn't capture the gains but we didn't lose either. Any serious trader who studies market conditions and takes an increased risk is condemned to fail over time. I would rather play it safe, given the expected lack of liquidity than risk losing substantially.

Thanks again, Bonbon2; continue to provide us with your guidance.  8)

yeah I am not going to be perfect by a long shot -- but what you will see is - mine makes money when its on about 95% of the time

and I do miss alot of crappy days -- like I said you can take what I do for what it is worth -- FREE LOL.

Agree with both you gents, missing out some of the bad days on scalping can be hugely beneficial.
BS on average copes well with down days, but in general with scalping you can have a couple of bad days and your entire month scalping is lost...
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on November 23, 2017, 12:08:52 PM
yeah exactly - I really am looking for the prime scalping days and removing some of the risk .. and just trying to take away those slow days as well -- yeah I am missing some profit sometimes - but really what I am doing is just trying to make consistent income to use to create more accounts.

My observation for the last month or so, every Monday BS does bad. Not sure if others noticed the same thing.

Is it feasible to disable the first trading session of the week (Monday)? Not sure yet but will start to do so from next week at least till BS started to perform again on the first day of the week.

What do you think?
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: anglebird on November 29, 2017, 11:44:17 AM
Yes I think so, but I believe it's only temporary. If we look at forexgermany account BS perform very well at monday generate 95% profitable trades.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on November 30, 2017, 07:52:09 PM
was a good month overall but this week has been crap --- funny thing is every position was on the correct side but the market sat at the lows or highs and not getting the profit target -- then once time expires and it closes with small loss --- the market moved aggressively in the correct manner.

maybe these morning algos getting slightly smarter .. probably need to make sure there is enough volatility to get in and out in future to reduce the lag ... as it is clear on the really good mornings where it does 4-5 trades that it sells right at the high and buys right at the low -- doesn't go through the level 10 pips very often and then hit the TP ..... usually those days are small loss... when it comes back to BE plus commission and swap loss of course.

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on December 04, 2017, 06:33:43 AM
Tried it for some time but at the end decide it does not worth it. most of the time it will not enter any trade at the trading session. Other than that most of the trades will be around BE.

You can try it as well. if you are using a live account just reduce the risk and let it go for a month or so and decide after that.

DO NOT USE THIS ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN EUR OR GBP -- THE VENDOR TRIED IT AND BLEW UP ALL THEIR ACCOUNTS WHICH IS WHY THEY USE FG AS REFERENCE NOW

I pointed this out the other day - yesterday same thing market screwed the EA over by keeping it from the true value EA takes a loss and the market drops to where it should be -- I personally am not turning on today simply because we need to see the market able to move in both directions - so we can trigger our orders -- there is something not quite right in the market at the moment.

when you lose money when you should be making money is bad sign -- strategy is right but the algos are bit smarter - have to wait for them to change.

(Just my opinion)
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on December 06, 2017, 12:38:09 AM
this pretty much went the way I suspected it would -- it maybe better to leave this off for a week and let the market do its thing before it comes back to the older times of scalping .. that is what I will be doing.

I will not be turning on BS this week -- in the morning we have seen alot of small trends come into play - making it more risky at the moment.

once the market starts going back to up and down rather than trend will enable it again..... it simply isn't a smart EA so it needs a little help when we see a market like we have at the moment.... so a week off and reassess .. (just my opinion)

Post by: donbon2 on December 11, 2017, 05:25:13 PM
I am looking for the pattern where BS trades 5-6 times in the morning - it makes the most money and when it sells mkt goes down and when it buys market goes up.

for example EUR

BS buys at 82 and sells at 96 limit orders    the market range is 80 - 98 .... this makes it highly likely BS makes money

but when BS buys at 82 and the market range is 68-84  BS just gets stuck and lucky to BE

this is what I am seeing at the moment -- the market is making small trends against BS positions because there has been alot more news and slightly stronger end of day trend --- it is all USD selling or USD buying ... this is not good and BS is struggling to buy or sell at ideal prices.

as I mentioned even on the good day last week it was just luck the market came back due to Brexit news otherwise losses would have been quite bad.

I really can't explain it more than that BS works great when the market distributes up and down evenly --- when small trends come into the market then it can't adjust quickly enough and we see losses .... you can leave it on and ride these out - or like me accept slightly lower potential return for less risk.

hi guys,

i have a strange problem on my mt4 account with BS (i have ICM)

yesterday i close all mt4 for upgrade windows on my server, after restart of mt4 all seems work without problem but... few minutes ago i connect to my server and the terminal where BS running was blocked, nothing datafeed and clock stopped... nothing BUY/SELL LIMIT order...

i close the mt4 and reopen it and now all work normally (LIMIT trade are currently placed)

where is the problem??? i have other 2 mt4 running on server, and these 2 different terminal running without problem... ICM stop the connection to my mt4?

Hello, Atomico.

Check with your VPS provider. As to ICM being responsible, I doubt it, but then again I too have ICM but have deliberately turned off BS following DonBon2's recommendation.  ???

funny IC Markets I really like - Pepperstone has little issues and they email you and call you where this never happens at IC ... I just want to trade and get the best prices .... its close but just think IC is slightly better for BS.

on Pepperstone limit orders just don't get filled like they do at ICM - you miss trades and on good days it can mean quite a bit of money.

Hello folks, first post.

I've been absorbing tons of useful information from this site so thought it was about time I should offer something back. This is my first week using best scalper, below is a screen grab of my results. This is using the 'default' set-up using Donna's set-files. 8.21% gain in less than a week - pretty impressive even if I say so myself  ;D

When I was doing due diligence on this I couldn't find a definitive answer whether or not BS works on Axitrader, so can now report that the above results were achieved using an Axi pro account on a CNS VPS. The trades are not exactly the same as Donna's, but fairly close. Notably, a lot more trades taken on Axitrader today, all with positive results.

Hello, traderstu.

Funny thing about your printout, claiming "more trades" from Axi; especially if one looks at the last symbols in the comments column, using the "callout" and "the pencil": Usually myfxbook uses the pencil to denote manual trades and the callouts to denote auto trades; you wouldn't have placed some manual trades by any chance?  :o

Hello HumbleTrader

No, all trades placed by BS, cross my heart. I can't explain this I'm afraid. I ran this EA on an Axi demo account for a day or so before going live and it has the pencil thing alongside each trade. I run all sorts of other EAs on this demo account and all of those trades have the "callout" icon.

Now the interesting thing is that if I go to Donna's myfxbook, some trades have the callout thingy, and some are blank. Beats me.

Humble Trader, you have really made me scratch my head over this one.

As far as I can figure, it is the ea that populates this dialogue. If the ea doesn't put anything in this field it shows as a pencil. I can't explain why mine & Donna's accounts leave some of these blank, and I presume that all of yours are populated. Are you running an older version? I'm running V1.32

Although i should be, i'm no expert on this as it's not something i pay attention to, but on the screenshot i noticed that trades were marked one way when the close price reached or exceeded the TP, and another way when they were closed at a different point. You can see the TP highlighted in green too when the TP point is hit. Might have something to do with the way Best Scalper closes it's trades out, whether they hit the hard TP or some other point internally programmed...

Good to hear that it's working on Axi too, traderstu, thanks for sharing.

Hello, DonBon2.

I, like you, like to tinker with my EAs and try to squeeze as much out of them as possible; sometimes I succeed and other times overall, I lose.

Given your custom strategy approach of (a) varying lot size (b) varying day of the week for trades (c) stopping BS during high impact news etc., would you claim that you are getting any better results than the standard account traded by Donna's "set and forget" BS, account?  ???


I would welcome your opinion as to why two charts (Forexgermany and DonnaFX), given all else being equal, (Broker, leverage, except that DonnaFX, is not fully verified ), would yield such different results (see attached):

Hi HumbleTrader,

As I know, the differences between donnaforex and forexgermany:
donnaforex - using 4 charts (2x EURUSD, 2x GBPUSD) with 20% Risk.
forexgermany - using 2 charts (1x EURUSD, 1x GBPUSD) with 15% Risk.

Thanks.

BS is a bit different for me - as I would not risk running over Brexit -- so I would not have 30% down or 30% up.

What I try to do is make 10% a month with next to no risk ... as I try to remove days where the odds are against me..... also I decided not to run 2 lots of charts but just 1 chart set up ... as on days it is going bad I don't want to increase my risk.

In the future I will put up a myfxbook with just BS and nothing else so it can be compared more easily... but I am just organizing to trade more of my funds so it maybe a month or 2 before that happens.

So return wise they may beat me - but DD wise I think I have them beat .. just depends what you are looking for.

They are around 180% with unlimited risk -- I'm more 120% with 5% risk.

I put 4% risk for this week -- once we get into the session will evaluate from there.

also will be putting BFS live on GBPCAD EURAUD and EURUSD - I will work on what settings I use and try to get at least one lot on one of the myfxbook accounts.

Next year I hope to be better organized than I have been over the last 3 months -- but I have gained so much knowledge this year - I think next year will be more profitable as long as M H1 - performs near its benchmarks.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on December 17, 2017, 04:28:22 AM
you look at the numbers you need to make 10% a month

1000 account trading 0.05 lots you need to make 200 points plus bit extra for commissions and swaps

that is 50 points a week or 12.5 pts a day - obviously doesn't trade mondays.

basically that is 2-3 trades a day ..... in a normal pattern this is perfectly normal and on good days you can get 4-5 trades all close in profit.

my goal is to trade double the size on the good days and lower when I'm not sure - or not at all after big news .... the more losses I miss the easier it is to hit the profit target ... so I just look at the average.

Also if you trade both timeframes per pair - then this may become easier -- but then you risk larger DD of course -- but this is why you see accounts with 180% profits -- if you leave at the maximum and don't get stopped out much - your going to make really good money.

this one is very much what your goal is and how much risk you take ... after you have banked profit it becomes more comfortable - but if on your first day you get a full SL - then it is not a good feeling.

BFS is on for euraud and gbpcad but no trades --- mine shows profit over the last week but only because I closed the last trades when the news came out - otherwise it would have been full SL and it would be behind since start.

A few days ago I bought BFS and have been unsuccessful installing it on an IC Markets demo on my Beeks VPS that uses Windows Server 2012. Have had lots of communication with BFS support. Finally I gave them my VPS login info so they could try. They also could not get it to install and could only offer that I should use another VPS or run it on my PC where it does install and run fine.

I have been with Beeks for several years and have run many EA's and Signals there without problems. This is very odd and of course disappointing.

I should also point out that BFS Support has been very responsive to my emails.

Does anyone here run BFS on Beeks/Server 2012 or another VPS using that OS?

I'm a little confused by the abbreviations for the scalpers. I thought that Best Scalper was being referred to as Best Forex Scalper so I called it BFS. That was a mistake because the one by FxAutomator is Best Free Scalper which is probably being referred to here as BFS.

So I will try to use BS for Best Scalper and BFS for the free one.  On the other hand I don't like to refer to such a good EA as "BS" thinking of its typical meaning. :)

Cheers,
Rod

It is just irritating that the vendor doesn't improve the settings available such as the days to trade and whether to trade only in the direction of the swap.
Also, the close time only works for the hour but not the minutes, there is a bug or something with it. I was trying to close the pending orders 30 minutes earlier because for six months the trades after rollover are not making money. The minutes switch to begin trading works fine but not the close function.

On Wednesday you can also manually choose to only trade in the direction of the swap in the settings by going in to the "common" properties and finding the drop down menu and setting the switch for long or short after you have determined which one is in the collection side of the swap.

I tried to ask the developer for a lot of things. some changes are really small however the developer does not want to change anything.

For me the swap issue is not a problem in IC Markets because they have islamic/swap free ECN accounts and I am using it. in PS they don't have islamic/swap free ECN accounts and I am facing the same issue as the others.

Maybe one day I will recode this EA strategy with the missing functions if I got the time :D or when it is not working anymore.

After not being able to get BS installed on my Beeks VPS I have started a new Amazon EC2 free VPS. BS installed fine there.

I plan to run it on demo for a couple of days this coming week to be sure it is working properly and then put it on a live ICM account.

A big thanks to donbon2 for his suggestion of the free Amazon VPS.

hi,
donbon2 trading similar to mine.

I use:
Bestscalper,
Momentum 30m (EURGBP, UJ, UCAD, UCHF, EURAUD) - Makes average 2000pips month - DD 1000. History limited however, but i think should outperform H1 due to more efficient entry points.
Signals from Forex21.com (pretty darn good)
Signals from my own GB system similar to Forex21 that open only one trade every day at 8am GMT

BestFreeScalper untested for live account use. Not warranted inclusion yet !

Great Portfolio IMHO!!

I recently bumped up my account balance and now have more than 4 lots per trade. What I noticed is a remarkable drop in performance. I am wondering if anyone else has experience trying to scalp at bigger lots sizes?
This really is a set back and forces me to think if this is going to be worth while in the end. I mean I wanted to have an account growing continually and be able to enjoy a good income but the closer I get the more difficult it gets. Perhaps it just isn't possible to grow an account large with scalpers.
I can possibly open more than one chart and change the magic mumbers, perhaps setting round lot sizes, such as 2.0 on two charts. Any ideas anyone?

I am sorry to tell you this, but if you try any type of aggressive scalping with large lot size after some profit threshold you will get a personal dealer who will monitor your progress and eventually they will put you on a MQ Virtual Dealer. I know this from personal experience and very reliable internal information directly from the chief dealer of a decent MT4 brokerage company. The truth is if you want to make some decent profit with scalping, especially news and Asian session scalping you will need all your friends involved and accounts in many different brokers. The nice trading conditions you can find in some brokers are only for the losers as they are 90-95% of the traders - the rest 5-10% are going to a special server, or servers or even on manual execution from a personal baby sitter. Remember this - the profit of the retail brokers comes from the unexperienced traders with small accounts which will be lost directly in the pockets of the broker, because they do not cover the trades until they see you are a serious player. The big profitable traders are only pain in the ass for the retail brokers.

I can recommend you to change the broker to FXPIG.
Ask Kevin (the CEO) to give you a liquidity feed that fits to your trading style. FXPIG has very much knowledge about liquidity management. They can give you a liquidity feed, where you will not get any problems on long term, as there are several LPs that allow anonymous transactions. Some LPs have problems if you are doing money, but Kevin is aware of this LPs.

They are a real ECN Broker with zero B-Book orders.

I was with them many months, their feed actually is not that good, BS performance is the worst compared to IC and even Tickmill. Plus their swaps are REALLY high. Not to mention the withdraw fee, the higher among brokers

They could be truly the best broker out there - I do not argue with that, but they are still retail broker and all retail brokers has similar approach. This is just the only way they can make money. 4 lots are too much and the chance you are on special conditions is too great. One thing you can do using a same robot with many people here is to compare several trades with some of the guys with small account, so you will know for sure.

Yes true, the swaps are really high.
IC charge $2 (commission per lot) more, compared to FXPIG. So you should take this into the calculation if you compare spreads between this two brokers.

And beside the spread you have to compare the liquidity.
For trades below 1 lot, you will not face any problems normally.
Trading > 10 lots per trade requires a broker with a good liquidity management.

Well there is no doubt that trading Forex is like walking through a minefield. Every time you locate a path someone is putting more mines in front of you.
For the short term I have added more charts and reduced the position size on the charts. I will see how that goes for the next bit.

I've done this so many times in probably 50, or even more brokers through the last 15 years - if you get into the black list it is permanent. Take my advice if you wish and compare the exact execution price and pips profit for several trades with some of the guys here. It could cost you dearly if I am right.

there is a finite amount of liquidity during asian session, no broker can change that.

highest liquidity is london and even better yet overlapp london to ny. large lot sizes often need to be split to get filled on the broker side. then only the average price will show.

i seen it many times myself that very large orders actually move the price, that even can happen during liquid markets if its huge orders.

also currently we are in a dead zone, most market participants are still not back. by late feb early march things should be back to normal.

Correct - this is the reason, why we do not recommend any concrete broker for our EAs. Any concentration of many accounts using the same trading strategy /especially a profitable scalping one/ in a same broker leads to concentration of huge trading volumes in exact same moment, which the broker cannot handle well, so the broker has no options unless worsening the trading conditions for all accounts using this EA.

This can be the case or there is no liquidity to fulfill that order.

I think it is better to reduce the lot either by doing so using two or more charts or maybe open different accounts.

For me, this week result is around Breakeven so maybe it is not a problem in liquidity or broker but the market itself is not suitable for BS.

hi guys,

excuse me... but what i hear is: it's impossible to make money with SCALPER and broker???

i have put on my ICM account 500 Euro and placed the Best Scalper with AGGRESSIVE setting... if the scalper reach 4-5 lots for single trade... i can forget to make money???

this is ONLY for the SCALPER? this is for ALL THE BROKER?

on my mind ICM, Pepperstone, TICKMILL and similar are good broker... but seems that i am wrong...

DARWINEX???

what are the difference with retail broker and high liquidity broker?

really impossible to make money with scalper??? all my backtest are UNUSABLE from what i hear... all broker play bad versus the client that PAY a COMMISSION for single trade...

I don't know why you should worry about scalper performance, Donna makes 179% profit before a year and forexgermany make almost 3000% profit more than 3 years with this kind of strategy. I think you should worry about your setting to run BS in aggresive mode, forexgermany run BS in conservative setting and suffer 36% drawdown, so it is really possible you will suffer around 60 % or maybe 70% drawdown in bad period if you still run aggresive mode.

I'm using BS on darwinex, so far so good but running BS on ICM is the best. You get lower spread, faster execution, also cash back, really great deal I think. Comparing my account with forexgermany or donna's account, their performance is better.

I believe the problem comes in on larger accounts. That's probably when you get flagged at the broker, that is if the broker does play the games. Donna's and Forex Germany's accounts are relatively small.

Post by: donnaforex on January 10, 2018, 06:51:03 PM
If i'm going to scalp trade i'd rather 'go big or go home' in terms of aggressive risk (NOT account size! quite the opposite, i trade big on small accounts and then would aim to withdraw initial capital ASAP - i didn't withdraw on my reference account because it's a public test account, but i probably should...). Time and time again we see scalping systems ultimately fail over time. Best Scalper has lasted longer than any other scalper i've seen to date; something i find quite impressive. But i expect it to eventually fail as with all scalpers (i'd like to be proven wrong, let's meet again in 5 years and see what happens...). With that in mind it is best to recover 1. Your account capital and 2. Your purchase cost for the EA, as quick as possible and then it's all fun and games after that.

Of course you have to weigh up how aggressive to go and allow room for normal fluctuations, at quick glance on my account i believe a normal fluctuation to be as high as 60% dd on my account. It's no good going so high that a small shift eliminates your account. It's also no good going big on a $500 account if that $500 represents half of your trading bank - that's asking for trouble.

I know this flies in the face of the general 'trade 1% risk and go slow' mentality but it's my experience over the years with this kind of system. Slow and steady is for something else, not for fast scalpers. And neither do i think scalpers are good for new traders even though it is the most attractive trading method to many. On the subject of new traders, one big thing i keep seeing is newbies throwing their whole bank into one or two accounts and adding systems then sitting on the edge of their seat biting their nails. Diversify and spread out across more accounts so you aren't attached to 'the big one', some may fail, some may fly... 

Back on topic...One thing going for us at the moment is that the focus is very much away from EA's and onto cryptocurrencies, binaries, and other trading. EA's seem to have fallen out of fashion a bit. This is good and will extend the lifespan :).

*small print: i'm not suggesting everyone trade at mad risk and this isn't a recommendation, you need to find what is right for you and everyone's circumstances are different.*

DD is NOT my problem, i understand perfectly that i can suffer for big DD...
the problem is: when my account grow (i hope to see) and lotsizes increase from 0.2 to 2-3-4 or more lots... i am FLAG from the broker and i stop to gain money???

for what i read seems impossible to have an account grow in similar mode of the executed backtest... what i want to try to reach is a continuos grow of my money... if i pay a commission to ICM, why i can suffer to gain money?

7$ for lot is not good for the broker???
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: Nadir on January 11, 2018, 11:32:27 AM
I have the feeling we mix all kind of things together here and people already start to panic because of confusions.

1) If you trade in a normal / dealing desk account then you make a mistake. Because no dog should bite his feeders hands. In these accounts the broker is the market maker, he will gain your losses and lose your wins. If you win too much they will flag you and worsen your trades. Basically this is like playing in a casino against the house. They like you when you lose, not when you win because your win is their loss.

2) ECN / STP accounts work in a way that your trading counterpart is "the world" but not your broker. If the broker is an honest one and is really giving your orders into the world market then they have no reason to not like you. Because they win from your commissions and basically the more you trade the more they win. However only good brokers see your account money as yours and not as theirs.
Needles to say, withdrawing a lot of money is always a crucial moment when dealing with any form of brokers and even banks.

However(!), your counterpart is the world market and therefore you need a partner which is betting in the opposite direction as you. That's fundamentally the point about liquidity. Scalpers depend on getting the trade fast. If a million people use best scalper and one million accounts are ordering at the same time say long eurusd, who exactly is the kind of idiot to shorten that? Most of the time there is always enough liquidity to do whatever trade you like but in such timely tight scenaries, the more people use your strategy, the worse it is for you because the longer you have to wait before some counterpart for your trade is found.

And obviously, the higher your lots, the worse it gets.


On a sidenote: this is trivial talk, if you go deep, you would need to factor other things in and would need to correct some formulations. I'm aware of that.

With two charts splitting the risk yesterday/last night, I did the same as Donna's account on eurusd but on gbpusd I slipped 1 pip. Still not very good but I will wait until next week before changing anything again.

I appreciate all of the comments here regarding brokers and liquidity. I do trust IC Markets is a fair player in this otherwise crooked game and it would seem to me that few lots is insignificant but there are likely hundreds of traders requesting the same liquidity at the same time which is looking like a factor here.
I used to believe that larger lot sizes would have an advantage because in the earlier days of retail Forex trading the microlot sizing was an inconvenience and not readily available. So perhaps things are different now; I don't pretend to know how all of the nuances of how a market runs but I feel it effects at times.

Post by: donbon2 on January 12, 2018, 03:08:28 PM
basically it works most of the time on limit order - when the offer or bid goes over the order - if there is enough volume there then you get filled if not you get the next price (which can be better or worse)

as we have seen - depends what server you are on and whether your using a VPS as can make slight price difference.

main thing here is you need ECN broker or just forget it you will never get anywhere.

you trade with a dealing desk they will not allow this for very long - as they can't cover every 30,000 trade it isnt worth it to them.

I believe that Donna's account is 2 charts and ForexGermany is 1. You could confirm this by looking at the trade history in their FxBooks. (I haven't done this.) Donna's risk setting may also be different than FG. She gave here set files in post #309 here.

BS uses limit orders. Entering the trade should not be a problem or even when the trades close at TP or SL. However, at the time of closing the trades by EA when it get out of trading time without reaching TP or SL it can be affected by your VPS location.

Today's sell order closed in negative on ICM after trading hours, but it reached TP on PS at trading hours. This depends on the broker's liquidity providers.


account of Donna is with AGGRESSIVE set? with double chart for both currency pair?

not sure to understand this particular...

on my account i have 2 negative SELL trade on GBP, because i am using AGGRESSIVE with 2 chart and 2 different start time (16-18 and 17-18)

my server is located in EU, ping is variable, sometime good sometime bad... from 70 to 90 ms

in this case PS is better respect ICM...

then, have the VPS/SERVER in the USA can help (for ICM) to prevent these loss trade session?
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on January 13, 2018, 06:21:23 AM
Overall ICM is better than PS and I just wanted to show you that if the trade closed at TP or SL your VPS location has no difference.

It is normal to have loss sessions between time to time and even if your VPS location is near the server it will make a small difference.

"i see that you are using BFS on your account (and also BS)

BS is running on my live account now from october 2017, i have a very good start with this EA, but the last period is not very good, now all the profit was lost and the account is a little in negative... i hope to see again grow my account (if market help the bot to recovery)
i am using high risk and i know the risk of DD...

now i want to place also the BFS on my account, and after some backtest i decide to use EURAUD and GBPCAD, but also EURUSD and USDJPY looks very good from 2015...

the only doubt is the risk setting and the TICK TRADE...

for the TICK TRADE i think to use it on FALSE, because in the backtest the DD seems less respect using TRUE...

the risk setting, for my backtest i set it to 30% (recovery = OFF) and the result are too high (and impressive) to be true (but i want believe in this EA and the backtest on this moment of consideration)

if i want to use all the currency pair, it's a right choice to set the risk to 15-20%? i have also to reduce the risk of the other EA, Best Scalper... right?


you think that is a good choice these set? you have some suggestion?"

you should have 2 separate accounts  - run Best Scalper in one and Best Free Scalper in the other .. make sure to have rebates from Broker for each account.

It is too much risk to have them both on same account - if we have a stuipid morning where prices gap and you may run out of equity if price gaps or they widen the spreads to 50 pips as an example.

Best Scalper it has such a long history you should just pick a risk level and leave it - I don't do this I manage it but many people don't do this -- only trade EUR and GBP with it - developer tried other pairs and lost all their money -- it just doesn't work.

Best Free Scalper I suggest recovery with risk 10-15% -- recovery is fine because the win rate is so good - you want it to trade alot.

well I would not trade eur or yen with it but the others I would.

My results are close to backtest in MT4 but I get less trades because I use lower spread filter so it blocks some trades but in my view - this also stops crappy trades opening as well ... better to have really high win rate than to add losses to account.

Scalpers are Scalpers you know they aren't perfect -- but double your account withdraw profit and just let it run with the remaining funds.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on January 18, 2018, 08:36:23 PM
just in relation to BS - I think most people would have seen not to run it yesterday market was too volatile for EUR and GBP trading.

BFS I left on and it made some money in the crosses .. but nothing I could do with M H1 - alot of stops in that lately - sucking away any scalper profits.

I left mine on yesterday, unfortunately! I haven't been looking for volatility to enable/disable its running. I don't have a good feel for what would be too much. Any suggestions and or might there be an indicator that I could use that would give me some kind of not to exceed number?

Something odd happened with Donna's yesterday. I don't think she intervenes since it's a 'test' account but she escaped the big losses. ForexGermany and I had the same results: an EU & GU with bad losses, especially the GU. We also had 2 EU and 1 GU in profit, but way less than the losses. Donna only had 1 EU & 1 GU both in profit.

Since starting Dec 12, I was in profit but am now down 3.6%

Hello,

Can anyone please verify the magic numbers used in the live BS account used by Donna, which magic numbers apply to the 16:00-18:00 charts and which magic numbers apply to the 17:00-18:00 trade settings.

EUR/USD, magic # 20000 and 303030

GBP/USD, magic # 787878 and  987654

I noticed that trades opened by the magic number, 987654 are mostly losing trades and I want to eliminate this chart (If I am going to use 4 charts like Donna). I think this was probably answered in an earlier post but I don't seem to be able to find it.

Or it could be that the present vendor is not really a developer/coder and purchased it from the original one. He/she could just be a marketing person. I have no proof of this, but do see it as a possibility.

Absolutely agree with this. Perhaps the vendor has inherited this from another family member. Husband dies wife takes over or something.
I have spoken with the vendor about bugs etc and was just brushed off. What a shame. The minutes don't work for setting the close time but the hours work, ridiculous not to fix this.
I also believe that if had not been for forexgermany this vendor would have no sales since they did not figure out where and how to succeed with this ea. I think they probably cheaped out on getting set up on a vps at times and couldn't make it work.
There certainly are a few things that could be done better. But amazingly it still works.

I tried it on ICMarkets and Pepperstone. ICMarkets is better. I don't think that it will work anywhere better than ICMarkets. Other people tried it on different brokers but return back to ICMarkets.

ICM fills more orders than Pepperstone does   after a while of seeing this you just get tired of getting screwed by Pepperstone.

Overall every day I see up to 10 point better fills at ICM -- it has gotten to the point I might not even bother trading at Pepperstone anymore - it has become a waste of time.

It shows profit however not as same as ICMarkets. not sure but it looks like Pepperstone Asian session feed is somehow filtered or smoothed and some pending orders are not get filled or filled with worse price comparing to ICM. But still, I am running BS one both ICMarkets and Pepperstone.

Does it fail with Pepperstone or still shows consistent profits, just smaller than with IC Markets?

Hi,

I am using different EAs on the same accounts so it will not be possible to compare 100%. But attached an example of the difference between the performance for the latest trades on ICM and PS accounts.

Thanks. ICM clearly produces more trades than Pepperstone. Would running a local trade copier (such as this free one: https://www.fxblue.com/appstore/2/mt4-personal-trade-copier) from the ICM account to the Pepperstone one improve the latter's profitability?
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on January 28, 2018, 06:50:56 PM
Tried that but was not so good. I tried local copier for two accounts in ICM and it was not doing as well as if I am running two BS. I think PS is filtering the feed and because of that, we are not getting the price to fill the order. The spread can play a huge role in an EA like BS. so for example if the spread in ICM is 5 and in PS is 10 then even if you are using local copier you will not get the same entry/exit price.

Yes, I realize the receiver account traded via a local trade copier will be doing worse with this kind of EA than the sender account traded directly with the same broker.

My question is: despite any feed/spread differences between ICM and Pepperstone, will a Pepperstone account receiving signals from the better broker ICM produce better results than a directly traded Pepperstone account?

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on January 28, 2018, 07:37:47 PM
No.

Tried master ICM and slave PS and it was worse than if BS traded directly on PS account.

Post by: donbon2 on January 28, 2018, 11:49:59 PM
no you can't do that - because BS uses Limit Orders -- these orders get filled at ICM - but they never trigger on Pepperstone

from what I have seen Pepperstone filters scalpers while at ICM you just get the raw price.

I withdrew most of my capital from Pepperstone this morning - it is just so expensive to trade with them compared to IC Markets.
Title: Re: Best Scalper

the last straw for me was Friday

Best Free Scalper

EURAUD

IC Markets - sold at 78 - bought back at 76
Pepperstone sold at 68 - bought back at 76

same EA same settings same VPS

this is the type of thing that is happening all the time - sometimes it might be as small as half a pip but other times it is 10-15 pts - and that is just silly.

Even if it doesn't fly there well, we still have ICM.

I checked the date Donna's account took a big hit (May 30 last year) and I actually remember that day very well. I was running another scalper on one of my small accounts and right during the inter-session hour after New York close and before Tokyo opened fake news of fresh problems in Greece came out, causing wild market swings. The Greek government dismissed these allegations first thing in the morning but the damage was already done.

That's what I would fear the most with this strategy - a couple of such hits with just days or weeks between them can easily send your account into an irrecoverable drawdown. This very thing killed such legendary scalpers of the past as FAPTurbo, Forex Megadroid, Million Dollar Pips, and all others. Some of them might have made up over the years for those huge losses incurred in just one day but it makes no sense to run an EA for years just to recover one day's loss.

Dear Traders, I cannot stress enough how important is to make your own investigation before you put your hard earned money in a forex broker. Probably 70-80% of all retail brokers are small, unregulated, offshore, no name companies, which slow and steady will rob your money. Here are some guidance when you chose a broker:

- Chose only well-known large brokers
- At all cost avoid offshore brokers
- If it is possible avoid unregulated brokers
- At all cost avoid unregulated brokers for large accounts
- Have in mind that many of the reviews (in forexpeacearmy.com for example and not only) are from agents - just ignore the 4 and 5 star reviews and read only the bad ones. No one bothers to write a review, if it is pleased from the broker he uses.

And finally - if an EA vendor offers a ''free'' robot, forcing you to open an account in particular broker - run with 100 MPH - most probably you will lose your deposit.

Would suggest you don't go nuts with this EA - as stops can happen - you need to look at the market before it starts each day and make a decision as to on or off - and what risk level to use.

The EA makes money - so just use it wisely.

My friend is no Forex trader and doesn't aspire to become one - just a guy with a regular day job in an unrelated field. He wants to run it in a set and forget mode just like Donna. She uses 4 charts with a 20% risk per trade - I've been telling him it's pretty high risk and would only be acceptable on a small account like hers (no liquidity issues and no hard feelings in an event of a big loss). What would be your risk per trade recommendations to him if he was to trade it on two charts instead of four?

20% on two charts. I don't run the gbp past 17hours because it barely wins and as I have mentioned here earlier, I would run it to 17:30 but the lame vendor won't fix the closing minutes function.

How exactly do the brokers' feed filters work? Why does this EA get substantially fewer trades with some brokers? I would like to know the mechanics behind it.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: donbon2 on January 30, 2018, 06:13:44 AM
it would appear to me either the brokers or counterparties are last looking the trades

at ICM they seem not to do this - if the price and volume is there the trade is done no interference.

why other brokers are crap compared to the good ones - their financial position and getting rejected by counterparties so they have less in their system... less counterparties the worse prices they offer.

I don't mean requotes or slippage. I mean trades not even getting placed, with no error messages in the MT4 journal whatsoever. For one, when I ran scalping EAs with these brokers directly I was getting a lot fewer trades than with ICM.

Are you getting the same price for both orders or worse price on the slave accounts?

Yes, you will be filled with the market price which can be better or worse but most of the time it will be a worse price.

For BS they are pending orders so it will not be triggered unless the price reached the pending order entry price.

Be careful, this could be a innocent ommission or the begining of some sort of scheme ready to flourish.  ;)

The results at the above link are those of Best Scalper. What scheme?

Sometimes we make statements that are questionable: For example your statement, "The results at the above link are those of Best Scalper. " (a) Are these results from "someone anonymous" using the EA Best Scalper or are they "from the vendor" of Bst Scalper?

As far as I know, the "vendor" of Best Scalper, does not have any charts of their own and they are using (a) Donna's charts (b) that of Forex Germany, whose user is unknown but acceptable because they are Track Record Verified, Trading Privileges Verified.


Just a few months ago, one of our most trusted members, reinerh, was shot down by another fx site because his myfxbook was not track record verified; I don't want this to somehow turn into such a discourse.

I am just siding on the side of caution because I have seen too much and many manipulations in this field; no harm done, just cautious.

I think Donna has changed the set files on the "EST_Open_Hour=16.0" charts
EST_Close_Hour=17.0
your set file (and mine) has:
EST_Close_Hour=18.0

oh thank you very much, I miss this fact.
But what is the reason of this change? just to reduce risk? I probably missed the messages of this forum where you discussed about this. I have to check.

what is the difference between running 2eas on different hours instead of running only 1 ea/pair for 2 hours?

A number of ways,  but I'll point one for your education but for others you will have to pay  ;D

If you look at any myfxbook chart on the upper right hand side, you are given the opportunity to copy trades,  thus by directing traffic to this chart, the owner of the chart will profit from it and anyone who works with them to direct traffic to that link.

I think you have challenged me enough and not accepted my sincerity of caution, please do not escalate this.

You will the trades on that hour twice which should in theory increase your profit based on the backtest done by the EA creater. But still it is risky to do that.

Running only on chart should reduce the risk and income.

I don't think there would be any difference between your 2 setups, but this is not one of the recommended options.

The recommended options are:

Aggressive - 4 charts, 2 pairs, EU 16-18, EU 17-18, GU 16-18 GU 17-18

Modest - 2 charts, 2 pairs, EU 16-18, GU 16-18

Conservative - 2 charts EU, EU 16-18, EU 17-18

In the former case, you get duplicate trades in the 17-18 window, taking a shot for twice more profits in that one-hour window yet twice more risk. The developer deems the 17-18 window safer than the 16-17 one.

I thought so, "but" this is assuming that risk is constant: You can use 1,2 or 3 and have different risk setting and change the aggressive to modest and vice-versa.

My friend got one winning trade at FXChoice today, and so did Donna at ICM.

Just some food for thought. Once upon a time there was a prominent Asian scalper by the name of Forex Megadroid. It once took a hit and it then took it almost two years to recover from that hit: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/CentMan/forex-megadroid/1086408

What's the longest it would take Best Scalper to recover from its worst case scenario hit?

If anyone wants to buy a Megadroid license I have several to sell at a good price, although I must admit, I never had a loss while I was using it but the SL is too nerve-racking to have, that I why I put it to sleep. There are others, however, who swear by it and continue to make money ;)

The stop loss draws in tighter with time similar to the way FapTurbo used to do once the normal trading hours have elapsed.
As for the recovery time, well if you have 4 charts then then you could be looking at a couple of months or more but on average after a full stop it isn't more like a month.

After watching for a while, I'm finally think I'm ready to jump on board with BS. Is it common practice with this EA to leave it running ie. Donna and FXgermany, or do most of you turn it off and on according to market conditions like Donbon?

Ideally I'd like to just turn it on and let it ride, but if it seems like common practice is to gauge the market daily, then I might have to adjust my expectations.

Both approaches have merit. If you switch it off on an eventful day, you might be able to afford running it at higher risk. Opting to run it 24/7 at a lower risk is also justified. My friend who runs this EA has no time/opportunity to babysit EAs, so he opted for 24/7 at lower risk: two charts at Risk=15 on each - same as Forex Germany, even though he was initially intent on following Donna's approach with four charts at Risk=20 on each but I told him it was too risky in my opinion. 
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on February 01, 2018, 04:58:37 AM
Depends on your needs and expectations.

Doing what Donna and ForexGermany are doing will be easier because it will free you from using your emotion/analysis for the market before each trading session. However, that means in the unusual days you may get a lot or lose a lot.

What Donbon is doing will decrease your profit but it will help you to decrease the risk of unusual days. steady profit curve. However you need to monitor the market and understand why and when you need to stop the EA from trading. If you have the skills to do that you may want to do the same.

I am using both ways. Most of the time I will allow the EA to trade unless there is a significant scheduled news at the trading session or before/after 2 hours from the trading session. Some days I will look at the daily candle and if the current price is at the top of bottom of the candle I will stop the EA.

Other members of the forum found that when you have a big account the performance will start to deteriorate or at least not giving the same results of small accounts.

If I were to trade it, I would leave it at lower risk on its own 24/7. It's proven to survive this risk over the years and the only risk that can bring it down is one we can't foresee - such as a high-impact event or a fake news release during the bot's trading hours. This is exactly what happened in May 2017 when that sole big drawdown occurred - a fake news release during the bot's trading hours about Greece allegedly having problems again. Events before and after the bot's trading hours sure have impact too but it has proven not as critical. Not even Brexit brought this bot down on ForexGermany's account.

Post by: 5ninefish on February 01, 2018, 06:01:46 AM
Thanks for all the input. I think I'll try Donna's approach with a lower balance and let it ride. It seems that even in the worst case scenario, it only took a few months to recover. I also run SFE, so I'm used to tuning out an EA and letting it do it's thing when it's been misbehaving.

Hello, I just bought the scalper and I started yesterday to read the topics.
For the moment I started the EA on a vps (IC Markets True ECN Broker) with a demo account.

What I know for the moment is that I have a recommendation to use the EA on 4 pairs EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY and XAUUSD. For this pairs I have also some set files based on 1H time frame.

My questions are:
1. I saw Donna's set files from post #309 - 2 set files for the same pair and same time frame. Can someone tell me which is for which.

2. Can you please help me with a user guide. What can be configured in the EA proprieties. Not all the options are very clear for me.

3. Some SET files would help me a lot.

Thank you very much

good discussion on pros and cons of using this.

personally I look for 10% a month every month ... so sometimes I stop it and it makes money - but other times I avoid a 4-6% hit and makes it alot easier to hit 10%

the problem is this EA is not smart - it can't anticipate things - it either hits its TP or you suffer decent losses due to the leverage it uses.

since I have owned it I have only had one day of Full SL - because after that I decided to monitor it and adjust my risk each day depending on what I think its chances of success are... it was a day the BOE guy gave a speech right on Asia open and GBP went up 300 pips

On the really good days it does 5 winning trades -- these are the days you need to have it on ... when it is only able to open 1-2 trades then the range is bad and you run the risk of getting caught out with a bad trade ... so this is why I look at the ranges every morning and make a decision.

You know I appreciate people want hands off EA's but as we have seen the last 2 months with other EAs sometimes that isn't the best approach.

Recovery from losses is fast actually - 2 weeks -- if you start taking full SL then your looking at a month.

This is a great EA - but keep in mind someday it is going to stop working - so use it now and be ready to move on  (for the price it is an absolute steal)

Best Scalper is the simplest EA to set up there is .... do your GMT time and your risk -- that is it.

It runs on:
EURUSD
GBPUSD

Donna is using
EURUSDx2 (16-18)+(17-18)
GBPUSDx2 (16-18)+(17-18)

I did not see anybody using:
USDJPY and XAUUSD

I set the ESToffset manually on ICMarkets it is 7 because the server timing is GMT+2.

You will only lose on other pairs including usdchf just as the vendor did. The EA probably would work but the coding is screwed up and the stops don't work correctly for some reason. I can't remember of the top of my head but I did try it for a bit and there was an issue. USDCAD has good spreads at the same time of day and if I recall that pair simply didn't put a stop on at all so there are bugs for sure and has been stated the vendor won't deal with anything at all and I mean absolutely nothing, I know this because I have spoken with whoever it is.
I have the gbpusd pair shut off at rollover because for many months it has not made money at that time, it starts moving moving earlier than eurusd and you get caught at least from my analysis.

Post by: donbon2 on February 03, 2018, 12:40:44 PM
I just think that by reading some of the comments coming in that people are thinking this is the holy grail of FX

just keep in mind - this is a specific EA that trades at a specific time - that requires a specific broker - that has zero protection and it not particularly well coded.

So if you start it today and you get stopped out you can blow through quite a bit of capital ... please be smart with it and not expect it to be more than what it is.

Use a sensible risk.

To make 10% a month you just need to take very small or no losses - which means you need to monitor the market at all times it is on... if you take a 6% loss like what happens sometimes when you let it trade by itself then your not going to make it.... whatever works for you really - if you run full auto then your going to have bigger swings both up and down.

If you have read through this topic you would have seen that I have mentioned the poorer results I am getting with 3 or 4 lots. I trade at IC Markets on a VPS.
On Thursday I really had a strange loss of 11 pips on the Cable right at rollover when I have the chart quitting new trades. I trade one hour less on Cable because it is not profitable after stock market close or hasn't been in a long time. So the pending orders are supposed to close but the open trade should be managed and until this event I have not noticed any problem but I was  actually watching the terminal and when the spread widened at rollover the open trade closed for a loss at the same moment that the pending orders closed. Strange and costly and hopefully a one time event but one thing remains for me and that is the reduced performance since trading higher lot sizes.

Performance of Asian scalpers has known to be stellar on small accounts because brokers mostly b-book them by taking the other side of your trades, so liquidity is no issue there. Yet on bigger accounts they're not willing to take counterparty risks and would pass your trades onto their liquidity providers which serve you with a huge spread if no liquidity is available at the moment, forcing your trade to close in a net loss. You will be seeing a lot of this if you decide to scalp the CHF pairs during the NY-Tokyo inter-session hour. That could be the reason Donna's and ForexGermany's small ICM accounts didn't incur the last loss your bigger accounts did.

I suppose it depends on a specific broker how big of an account they don't b-book but pass its trades onto their liquidity providers. You actually don't want to be b-booked, as that means your broker is trading against you while being in control of everything. So I'd rather trade a true ECN account while being aware I just shouldn't expect profits as stellar as some on the b-booked accounts have managed to get meanwhile.

ICM might have stopped b-booking even small Best Scalper accounts after they saw the strategy was winning with enough liquidity. So the Best Scalper trades on all new accounts (even small ones) might now be pooled for execution at liquidity providers. We'll know more if we see a continuing difference in the outcome of trades on new accounts versus the old ones (such as those of Donna and ForexGermany).

Well a few years back some people would have argued that only trading in 0.1 and higher was going to be treated fairly in the market because microlots were for retail traders and perhaps they were not that common. But now it seems to be accepted that is opposite. I would have thought that 1 full lot is pretty small and Forexgermany and Donna have visible lot sizes on there public accounts that are still under that size so a comparison is possible to your own account once these two accounts cross that threshold. It will be interesting to see if slippage starts to take a toll on the aforementioned accounts.

Only if your broker doesn't know yet what strategy you will be using on your account. If they see you're using Best Scalper which they know wins under unlimited liquidity in b-book, they will pool your account regardless of its amount together with the accounts of other Best Scalper users to clear at the broker's liquidity providers.

Title: Re: Best Scalper

The better way to do it would be through the trades' opening times. It's not hard for the broker to set up a reference account with Best Scalper on it, then see which accounts take the same trades at the same time.

retail accounts used to be monitored - by account balance vs return - then vs time trades opened -- the faster trades opened and closed worse for broker .. the longer people had trades open the more likely they were too lose.

Check your stop losses. I have never seen before where they both were modified to a greater distance. It is hard to know what risk really is when this happens. I have 80 pips on eurusd and 90 on gbpusd. That is scary because I have not allowed for that.
Anyone else see something similar today?

Donna's was showing the same and now my eurusd is back to normal. Almost seems as though it was allowing for rollover spreads. I have commented here before that gbpusd does have 80 pip stop losses that stay in place occasionally.
This certainly means that the worst case scenario is far worse!
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: artcool on February 05, 2018, 10:09:38 PM
The EA put it back to normal now...I wonder if it didn't increase it before the rollover, fearing the spreads would widen too much due to the abnormal volatility...But I don't think it's so smart...I guess it's just a bug.

You got those losses because your GMT offset is wrong. Trading should start at 23:00 your broker's server time (Tickmill's server time is the same as that of ICM). In the bot's settings, set the auto EST offset to "false" and specify 7 for the hours.

To me, nothing is ever sudden on Forex anymore. I've seen some behavior over the past half a year that I don't really trade Forex anymore with any substantial amounts (running set and forget EAs on small accounts doesn't count). Yet the market's randomness is also the reason we can scalp it. Just don't get greedy and keep your risks in check. On Forex, no day is like another.

It is very odd. I got 2 trades as did Forex Germany. Kind of reminds me of Birt's results with his 'secret broker'. Nobody could do as well most of the time.

Anyway so far I am very pleased with my results at ICM. They are similar to Forex Germany.

it is not about a couple of trades for a few pips - it is not putting yourself in a position to take 2 full SL .. which can take some time to recover from.

both ways work - it really depends on your risk tolerance -- as believe me when the full SL come people will be crying.

We do need to be prepared for SL's but it's certainly wise to try to mitigate that heavy risk.

This thing is starting to feel like a daily ATM! Wonderful while it's pouring in, but we all know, or should know, that Holy Grail's do not exist in Forex.

Unfortunately as a US citizen, IC Markets is not an option. My broker options are extremely limited, and FinPro is one of the few ECN brokers still taking US clients. I also have an account with LMFX, but their commissions are not as good.

Any ideas on where to go for US clients? I've been profitable with FinPro since last summer running several EA's and occasionally manually trading. I'd stick with LMFX except for the higher commissions (which rack up whenever SFE goes active) and the fact that it took me over 40 days to get a large withdrawal from them. I've had no problems withdrawing from FinPro, but come to think of it, none of those were very large. Maybe I should try a large withdrawal from them.

It is normal. at least one to two days per month you will have this silence because of the large gap between the high and low candles before the trading session.

It is good that it went silent or it may take a direction and reach SL.

You should be ok with 3 or 4 lots and get similar, but likely not identical results.

I'm not sure exactly where you will start to have problems but personally if i was trading more than 10 lots i'd just create a new account/s and run several instances of the EA at once, especially on these kind of EA's that have variations from account to account (grid traders conversely are an example where bigger balance is normally better). At this point, it would probably also be a good idea to have an account with more than one broker too and maybe contact the EA seller to see if they'll give a discount on multiple licenses. People tend to cling on to one giant account at one broker and i don't know why, there isn't anything to be gained from it for your average retail trader other than a 'good to look at' balance.

Actually, there's benefits to creating multiple accounts on multiple brokers even with smaller accounts, but there's a point where it isn't cost effective due to the cost of purchasing and running the EA and there's a need to balance up potential trade losses. I could calculate this exactly but it'd be based on past results which we know are no evidence of what to expect in the future (so arguably worthless anyway).

Definitely not something to jump into quickly without weighing up the risks and taking into account your own situation.

It's interesting that ForexGermany's loss was rather negligible while one of Donna's trades hit a full stop loss of 40 pips with the same broker. ForexGermany somehow didn't even have that trade placed on his account.

It's interesting that ForexGermany's loss was rather negligible while one of Donna's trades hit a full stop loss of 40 pips with the same broker. ForexGermany somehow didn't even have that trade placed on his account.

Donna's trades often are different for some strange reason from FG's and mine, even though we all use the same broker. She usually does better than everyone else though, but not this time. Weird!

WISH THAT PRES TRUMP REMOVE THE DODD FRANK LAW PASSED IN 2009, HE SAID HE WILL DO IT DURING THE CAMPAIGN, MAYBE BECOME A REALITY THIS YEAR OR THE NEXT ONE
Yes please!!!  It's about time this incredibly stupid law was removed.  Although, even if the law is removed, I don't know of any good US brokers left.  :-(

usually, the trades get closed within 2 to 3 hours from the trading time. but donna's trades got closed at 6-7 GMT time which is around 7-8 hours after the trading session.

Keep in mind Forexgermany is using 1 chart for each pair rather than 2 which is safer but less profitable.

Anyway, I skip trading BS when there is big news around the trading session like FOMC. Sometimes that helps to get a lot of profit but I want to save my trading balance rather than praying that it will be a good trading session.

I've seen that, in her Best Scalper real test, Donnaforex is now using 0.45 lots.
Using in real, always on account ICMarkets, 3 or 4 lots with the same set of donnaforex, the performance drops significantly or remain almost equal?

You should be ok with 3 or 4 lots and get similar, but likely not identical results.

I'm not sure exactly where you will start to have problems but personally if i was trading more than 10 lots i'd just create a new account/s and run several instances of the EA at once, especially on these kind of EA's that have variations from account to account (grid traders conversely are an example where bigger balance is normally better). At this point, it would probably also be a good idea to have an account with more than one broker too and maybe contact the EA seller to see if they'll give a discount on multiple licenses. People tend to cling on to one giant account at one broker and i don't know why, there isn't anything to be gained from it for your average retail trader other than a 'good to look at' balance.

Actually, there's benefits to creating multiple accounts on multiple brokers even with smaller accounts, but there's a point where it isn't cost effective due to the cost of purchasing and running the EA and there's a need to balance up potential trade losses. I could calculate this exactly but it'd be based on past results which we know are no evidence of what to expect in the future (so arguably worthless anyway).

Definitely not something to jump into quickly without weighing up the risks and taking into account your own situation.

*This is NOT financial advise or a recommendation, just my opinion*
I am over 4 lots and it is a problem already.

Yes, ICM at CNS NY. Once in a while the bigger lots slip to the positive but most of the time  my account is getting skimmed for a little each trade.

Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on February 23, 2018, 03:49:02 PM
I have more than one account on ICM and Pepperstone with BS on them. So I have more than one copy of the EA (you can ask BS for a discount if you already have a license and you can get a good discount). I am trying to keep the lots as low as possible. I did not reach the level of needing to create more accounts but will do so If I found that the lot size is affecting the final result.

Rather than having one account with 4 lot per trade try 4 accounts with 1 lot each which can make a difference. I am still not sure what is the effect of big lots but theoretically, it will affect and some people are already got bad results because of the bigger lots.

I am using CNS NY as well and I can see that I am getting different exit prices on the accounts but it is almost within the normal range.

Post by: JonasBlixx on February 25, 2018, 03:45:14 PM
ICM are a good broker but they still internalise risk, so, returns will diminish as lot size increases.
Best scalper only makes 50pips NETT after commissions each month, so its a very fine line with oer trade expectancy of only 0.9pips after comms.
SFE night scalper is less susceptible to lot size increasing as TP >10pips.

This is how brokers deal with night scalpers, just start slipping you when you move up lots. Or, they increase spread. Been like that since the early days of FAPturbo over 11 years ago.  Eventually clients stop using it as the laws of diminishing returns present themselves.

Broker cant shift the larger lots to bank cos its toxic flow and liquidity provider will tell broker to block the toxic orders from your IP address.

I have ran upto 50lots on BS without problems, but need to use many brokers...good ones. BTW 5M ticket on interbank market is NOTHING in broad terms.

Well I'm pretty lucky. I slept in today which is always nice but when I opened my VPS as part of my lazy "ruffle about for a while in bed" routine, I noticed that Best Scalper was trading about 6 hours early!

Ended up making about 0.56% but that was sheer luck as far as I'm concerned. Had to restart that instance of MT4 to get BS to realize it was trading too early. I run four charts and they were all trading early. Restarting the terminal seemed to get the auto time settings back on track.

Yes I do. Most EA's fail after some success, well actually most EA's just fail with no success. However this one trades in a particular time zone that will not change unless you can add another continent to the planet with another busy financial centre Also, the conditions that this EA require have actually gotten better in recent years with tighter spreads and better liquidity as the Forex market was developing for retail clients.
There is one more concern about the larger lot sizing and that is the implications for other EA's, what I mean is that if BS does fail and I have found some other EA's that work well then I have the same problem with the slippage. So the whole endeavor of building a passive income account is perhaps futile in the end. I believe what is needed is a good non-scalping expert and I think DivToFibo might be one. It is available on the mql.com webstore and within the market place on your terminal.

Anyone tested and trade BS with Active Trade ?

I have a real account Activtrades with BestScalper.

https://www.myfxbook.com/members/silvanodeiboschi/activtrades-reale/1342161

In the "Custom Analysis" section I renamed the magic numbers:
BestScalper E 16 = EURUSD 16-18 EST
BestScalper E 17 = EURUSD 17-18 EST
BestScalper G 16 = GBPUSD 16-18 EST
BestScalper G 17 = GBPUSD 17-18 EST

In a demo Account of Activtrades i run BestScalper with same parameter of live account with 20% of risk (15% on real):
https://www.myfxbook.com/members/silvanodeiboschi/activetrades-tester/1563041

I also tested a different setting by making the ea work in the hours 18-20 EST and 19-20 EST.
Also in the demo account I renamed the magic numbers and you will find the same as the real account plus:

BestScalper 2 E 18 = EURUSD 18-20 EST
BestScalper 2 E 19 = EURUSD 19-20 EST
BestScalper 2 G 18 = GBPUSD 18-20 EST
BestScalper 2 G 19 = GBPUSD 19-20 EST

The trend of this second setting is, for now, positive, but has a greater drowdown (23% compared to 11% of the standard), but I do not want to completely discard it. Before passing it live, however, I will wait again.

I've never used FIX API and as I look into it, I'm more n' more thinking I should be using it but I just don't know much about it. Maybe you could explain a bit more to us here HFT?

On IC Market's page they seem to indicate that you have to be capitalized at $50,000 to use FIX API.

Having never used it either I have limited knowledge. I do know that I have a number of clients accessing LMAX API feed for their trading and receive requests for information on a regular basis.

I believe it is a more direct route to access a brokers liquidity with faster execution and eliminates the possibility of broker tampering with trades as they are executed directly with the liquidity provider. You would have the knowledge that your trades are being passed on to market and not kept in house. I believe the liquidity pool is deeper with API than MT4 and that API is seen as a more professional trading approach than MT4 (think cTrader).

If anyone is more conversant with Fix API any information is welcome.

IC Markets would require an estimate of capital and volume traded to justify setting it up. If they see potential ongoing business I feel that their specified individual requirements can be met as a group.

IC Markets is presently my primary consideration for moving over from Pepperstone and is likely where I'll be putting my largest accounts. Even went so far as opening an account I've not yet funded. I'd meet their requirements on my lonesome, but I'm not connected to an IB as I negotiate my own rebates.

If I do move over to ICM though, I'm happy to toss my weight behind a DonnaForex centric request for this.

I think it is pretty much accepted that IC Markets are the standard to which other brokers are compared so a good choice.

IB deals are great for more modest account sizes but as with most things in life......money talks and serious traders with serious cash can do great deals going direct to brokers. There is some flexibility with IB deals for clients with larger account sizes of course.

The main issue I see with this prospective endeavour is the purchase of the Mt4 to API program. $1K might seem a good deal for yourself but prohibitive to other members. However, should you wish to be the beta tester for this project I will certainly try negotiate a deal with IC Markets for the API feed.

I'll let you know nearer to the end of the month/beginning of next month if you haven't figured something out.

If it's something that we can set up as a forum i'd be curious to explore this. If we recruit 10 people that would bring the price down to $100 each which is reasonable? Or 20 people at $50 each, but obviously we don't want too many! I can create a sticky to try and fill spaces and/or mailout?

crikey, that sounds terrifying!

It'd need one or two trusted people to be responsible for checking the server and running it i think, that's the only way it'd work. Maybe if each trader gave their set files  and assuming that people still take responsibility for their own settings / can handle losses from the EA without throwing a tantrum and blaming it on the poor person left managing the server.

But then again there's always the chance the person managing it all can go rogue too. Though, it's hard to lose when you try to do it purposely :).

...Nope, too risky!

Good option for close friends/family/large traders/someone you'd trust with your life though.

I have run a duplicate MT4 instance on my desktop to monitor trades on managed accounts and MAMs so its not as if the idea is not feasible. I have a high end Beeks dedicated server that is massively under utilised so could make that available.
I will contact IC Markets again and clarify what they would require to provide a Fix API feed.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: alaali on March 05, 2018, 12:59:59 PM
I think the software itself not an issue because even $500 (if two people shared the price of one license which give them two PCs/VPS to run it on).

We just need to know the requirement to get an access to Fix API like:
- minimum balance
- minimum trading lots
- etc...

I think if someone tried it and get better results then some will be encouraged to join.

So we are waiting for HTF to get an answer from IC Markets.
Title: Re: Best Scalper
Post by: nwboater on March 05, 2018, 02:30:40 PM
Do we know what minimum size accounts are having problems?

If it's just the larger accounts, say 20k & up, then the cost of the FixAPI is not as difficult to bear because there is a lot of monthly profit on them.

HFT, thanks very much for trying to work something out on this.

Quite a few brokers offer Fix API. IC Markets was the first choice based on the most promising results for BS on their True ECN feed. It is assumed that their Fix API feed would yield better results than other brokers based on True ECN performance but this may not be the case.

I can arrange Fix APi from LMAX and based on a solid past relationship with FXPIG, would assume a decent deal from Kevin.

There is always the option of trying the Fix API feeds already available and comparing results. Initially it would take 2 forum members willing to split the $1K cost for the MT4 to API software and open Fix API accounts with for example, LMAX and FXPIG. Results could then be compared running the same set files on similar VPS setups. I am assuming IC Markets will provide a Fix API option but am awaiting a response.

I have long noticed that during the last hour of the New York session (16-17 EST) trades with other brokers mirror those with ICM nearly identically. However, during the following inter-session hour (17-18 EST) this and other scalpers get way fewer trades with other brokers than with ICM with no error messages in the MT4 journal whatsoever. Why so?

all I can compare is Pepperstone and ICM - I never tried this on other brokers.

initially I was happy at pepperstone - but then I tried ICM and ICM is way better it is not close.

orders are executed at ICM everytime - while at Pepperstone same orders will not trigger -- it costs alot of money basically by this lack of fill.

also when exit ICM is always 0.001 0.002 better so why pay this to PS as well.

I am so impressed with ICM I took all my money from Pepperstone and moved over --- also with BFS I see same thing - fills at ICM can be 10 points better

FX Pig and LMAX - I couldn't care less for those brokers when I am happy with ICM.

( I will also say I see many people complain this doesn't work that doesn't work - setfile for this setfile for that - things look bad etc etc .... I can tell you I have none of these issues .. Best Scalper works perfectly and makes money ... Best Free Scalper made 70 points for me this morning - I have no issues with it either ... you know maybe people use other VPS that are not strong enough - maybe other brokers or different account types who knows ... both these are perfect for the market right now. )

I don't want to disappoint you guys, but it seem no one know how this MT4 to FIX API Software works and that it is not possible to run every EA there.

There are several things that need to be changed in order to get a EA running with this software.

1.) You have to run the EA on a offline chart. Therefore you have zero informations about the account. It is not possible to calculate a lot size based on the account balance or get any Market-Information like the tick value (and many things more)

2.) The only commands that are available for a programmer are the following:
CheckOrders
SendOrders
CancelOrders
ModifyOrder
GetPosition (open trade)
ClosePosition
ModifyPosition
Bid
Ask
BidVolume
AskVolume
BidTime
AskTime
BrokerName
IsDataConnected
IsTradingConnected
GetDigits
GetPoint
GetFullBook

So you are very limited and you need to modifiy the EA to be able to run with this commands.

There is no way yet to run a commercial EA using FIX API yet based on my experience.

And beside this facts... If you have a good broker, than he can provide you a custom mt4 price feed that will provide enough liquidity for your account and this will lower your slippage. Better focus on this ;)
Title: Re: Best Scalper

IC Markets will only provide Fix API via cTrader so I have been informed so that ain't going to happen. I have set up another possible option tonight and will see how it performs.

Brokers can provide custom MT4 feeds and add and remove liquidity providers. Some just don't seem to want the business it appears.

I think we don't need to do that because USA is already entering the daylight savings time.

This is from IC Markets email:
"On Sunday the 11th of March, IC Markets will move forward by one hour from GMT+2 to GMT+3 as the US will enter daylight savings. Europe will follow on Sunday the 25th of March and Australia will exit daylight savings on Sunday the 1st of April."

You need to change the EST Offset if your broker adjusts for DST. So for IC Markets you change from EST Offset =7 to EST Offset =8

Do not rely on AutoTime.

EST (Eastern Standard Time) - https://time.is/EST

I have previously traded Best Scalper on a broker with GMT time that did not put the server time ahead to adjust for daylight saving. It was necessary to adjust the GMT offset manually using this broker. As IC Markets put the server time ahead there is indeed no adjustment necessary.

With the auto EST offset enabled, the EA has been noticed to trade at random times after weekend, so it's better to set the EST offset manually (and it's indeed the Eastern (New York) time offset rather than EST offset).

I still can't see any practical need for the bot to do it, however seldom - while the sudden risk increase is just crazy. Is the code faulty?

the code has issues, gmt and minutes being just 2. none or less its a proven good strategy in spite of the bugs.

why the bugs dont get fixed sure beats me.

Doesn't it just get to you when BS exits prematurely and you have a loss when it could have been a winner; oh, well, better safe than sorry.  :'(

We can't win them all.  :D

It doesn't get much to me as I am unfamiliar with the bot's logic.

That's because it made a lower low after the opening of the long trade on that same timeframe. Hence the EA assumed the trend has been established to the short side and it tries to close the trade when the price touches back the lower low, fearing it would continue its downtrend.

Same logic a good manual trader would apply for a losing trade ;)

I find as I have said before - on thursday u start it at 10-15 minutes into the second hour -- you get a lower entry and can get out faster - if the market trends like it sometimes does on thursdays then you get less of a loss - but also better chance to make a profit than a loss - which u often see on this day.

i disabled EUR - the spread between buy and sell is too narrow

also on that last eur fill which made me see how narrow it was

Donna got 062 while I got 053 -- my lot size is higher - this makes a big deal to these sorts of strategies .. which is why I have been spending alot of time building my own sets for BFS .. allows for bit better control really ... like others have said BS is not the best coded strategy you have ever seen LOL but it makes money do who I am to criticize :)

Are you saying you get a lower spread with a higher lot size? I would assume the opposite to be the case: the more liquidity is needed, the higher the spread.

I am going to discontinue the IC Markets cTrader demo account. Copying over from MT4 and/or higher spreads on cTrader demo results in poor performance.

your not following me

a. I disabled EUR because the difference between the buy order and sell order was less than 5 pips
b. the fills I got compared to Donna were different and it was costing me up to 1 point to execute - so best to just turn off after the initial trades.

Interesting. I got 5 trades all in EUR and all in profit and none in GBP. Usually my account *somewhat* mirrors Donna's with slight variations, but this is a large deviation. Thankfully it's in a profitable direction this time. My broker is GMT + 0, and have it manually set to 4 hour EST offset. It seems like my second pair of charts often just duplicates trades. I'm wondering if I got something wrong with the setup or if that's intended behavior.

Does your broker have a name?

My friend is with FXChoice and his trades there mirror those of vendor at RoboForex (which is substantially fewer than with IC Markets): https://www.myfxbook.com/en/members/Bestscalper/bs20/1821243

He would have increased the risk but the vendor won't fix the sudden SL increase bug.

A few days ago I made a post explaining that I couldn't get BS to install on my Beeks Win Server 2012 VPS.

BS (William) tried to make it work after logging in the the VPS and finally said the problem was at the VPS and that perhaps I should get another one.

After my post several of you gave suggestions. I tried them all to no avail. Regardless I want to thank you very much for trying to help.

Finally yesterday I got with Beeks support. At one point they tried to kick it back to the EA Vendor. Since I have it running on my Amazon VPS and it will install fine on my Win10 PC it really seemed to be a Beeks problem.

After pushing them a little they made a major effort to get it to install and were finally successful. I'm not completely sure what they did, but one of the things was to install the latest version of C++.

So I really want to give kudo's to Beeks for their hard work on this. The tech actually doing the work seemed very knowledgeable about MT4 and EA's.

Also their service was considerably quicker than it used to be. My issue was all handled on Chat in real time. In the past there could be considerable time lost with service tickets and emails.

This makes we wonder what I would have done if this problem, or other similar, happened at my Amazon VPS or some of the other cheaper non Forex VPS's.

Cheers,
Rod

rod,

non forex vps one can be screwed, since they might reboot during trading hours.

that at least wont happen with a fx related vps provider.

but my top choice is still cns, far better then beeks and cheaper too i think.

I've had good service for several years from Beeks. When I first went to them they were cheaper for comparable specs than CNS but that could have changed over the years.

This week with Best Scalper

18 trades with +33.5 pips  :)
Set: donnaforex
Broker: ICMarkets  Live02
VPS: CNS  NY



I get more trades than donnaforex.
Sometimes I have trades that last less than a minute, as if Best Scalper were an impulsive scalper.
Perhaps the difference lies in the VPS.
CNS NY is very good and has a very fast connection with ICMarkets

Am not getting anywhere close to some of the results people getting here.

I use to get very decent results. How important is latency? Whoever is with IC Markets, are you all using CNS?

So far this month, i got only 14pips.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY:

Just a side note about BS; this coming week it will be one year exactly that it has been running with DonnaFx with a total gain of 315+ %! If only I had invested the bank  :'(


Keep it up BS.

I am using ICMarkets and PS using the same CNS NY vps (sponsered by ICMarkets).
I have two accounts in PS and more than 5 on ICMarkers running the same EA.
ICMarkerts is overall better than PS but for this week this is the result:
PS1 [Edge7]: 24 trades, + 64.30 pips
PS2 [Edge3]: 24 trades, + 70.70 pips

ICM1 [Live05]: 17 trades, + 32.30 pips
ICM2 [Live05]: 17 trades, + 26.50 pips

For this week PS was better, however over all ICMarkets is better.

As the vendor wouldn't address the sudden SL increase from 41 to 91 pips and left my friend's inquiry on the matter unanswered, I suggested he uses the auxiliary Account Protector EA alongside Best Scalper (available for free at https://www.earnforex.com/metatrader-expert-advisors/Account-Protector/), setting the maximal total floating loss on the account at 15%. Do you think it's a proper number with Donna's sets on four charts (20% risk on each)?

They are good figures. Be great if we could post chart screenshot of tests using different VPS providers for comparison.
Here are my results from Beeks dedicated server.
