Title: LEGEND
Post by: mauricejac on October 07, 2018, 12:27:45 PM
Hello guys,
what do you think about this?

https://cuttingedgeforex.com/products/legend/

The strategy is similar to the various Ea Breakouts but it seems interesting because it also incorporates pending orders.
The price is a bit high, but you can download a free demo version.
Does anyone use it?

Track record is too short. Must see 1-2 years minimum of verified record.

Over 50% of the trades and profit made in just two days out of the total for the month - typical front-end loading in an attempt to skew the longer term performance...avoid until a statistically significant number of trades (over 6-12 months) prove it is a profitable system longer term.

one can backtest all their ea, except the legend link is broken.

having the ability to do bt is nice, one can see how it trades.

i just send them a mail and hope they fix the broken link for legend.

Post by: donbon2 on October 07, 2018, 08:40:22 PM
average win 27 pips

its a bit like FTD -- but performance with that over last 3 months has been bad like -38%

so yeah its probably not the best for this sort of strategy.

its funny breakout and volatility work when the big moves come  - but in slower markets it is a significant liability.

you take the other Breakout trading for 150 to 250 with 50 pt SL -- it profiles as a good idea - but in reality the market doesnt trade like that most of the time
Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: reinerh on October 08, 2018, 11:28:36 PM
so i backtested legend for the same time period to the forward live account,

and i have to say it matches darn close. i used a tradersway demo with birts tickdata suite and variable spread, gmt offset 0.

i must say that i am highly impressed with all their ea, even their tickscalper has a chance of being currently profitable.

from all the backtesting i did legend is the most promising, followed by apex.

anybody interested in these ea i would strongly suggest run some backtests yourself to see how the ea trade.
and make sure to run visual as well that will give you a really good feel.

Post by: jwatts7701 on October 09, 2018, 07:55:04 PM
this is promising. I remember the ascent free EA. It might be worth a closer look, although i am more inclined to wait until the live trading presents a bit more trades to analyze.

Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: reinerh on October 13, 2018, 01:31:30 AM
ok, so here is the scoop.

when i wanted to backtest legend i could not load it, so i made the vendor aware his download link was broken, he fixed that right away, and then he noticed increased traffic here from donnas site.

subsequently he checked in and seen my posts and remembered me from all the way back in 2012 or so when his first ea was released called ascent.

shortly thereafter i was in for a huge and i mean huge surprise, i got an email confirming my purchase, ha what the heck since i have not done so.
 
so what happened is that the vendor was extremely kind and generous giving me access to all his ea, yes all of them. thanks again joe :)

he will not be coming here since his efforts will be what he does best, coding and developing, and some of you will remember my debacle over at simpletrader, i will also never ever go down that path again.

the bottom line is i have set up a fx open account running legend default mm on eu and uj for now which will be in my signature.

rest assured i will try my best to be as unbiased as anyhow possible and strictly speak my mind from a users perspective, no more no less.

so from all the backtesting i have done i am extremely impressed, and here is why, backtests match forward results almost to the pip, with legend and ascent.

there is only a very very few ea on the market which can claim that = live results matching backtest.

for example, over on forexverified ascent has been running for a longer time, its results can be backtested which when done with 99% tickdata will show the same results.

and legend is the much improved ascend, lower dd more gains.

the legend strategy is outbreak trading on m15, but with velocity and pa taken into consideration, and it has very advanced exit strategy as well, with partial closure along the way to maximize gains.

so again i want to encourage my fellow traders to backtest the demo eas, visually also to see what they do, and keep your eyes on my legend account as it unfolds going forward.

oh the legend account will be linked early next week.

so as always green pips to all................................

I don't know, but the backtests don't look so great for me. Perhaps I should tweak the settings, but I used the standard ones for GBP for the last ten years. It just goes up and down and makes about 50% in the end.

I think the Apex Scalper looks more interesting, when I backtest it, and even the 'tick scalper' seem to do quite well.

But if it lives up to claims, I will for sure grab a copy especially with the discount. Thanks humble and reinerh for working on this.

Joseph has responded again with some extremely genuine discount offers but at this point, I think Donna needs to step in; I have forwarded to her, Joe's communication and hope to have her introduce Joseph as a possible vendor and contributor to our community.

fx open account is set up and ready to rock with legend.

this was always my test account, so start date was set for friday oct 12 2018.

legend eu magic is 19582 for s1 and 24837 for s2

legend uj magic is 19582 for s1 and 24837 for s2

this week already could have action since we have major releases, plus major turmoil in world politics.

italian bank crisis looming and brexit as well.

good trading to all.............

legend = eu with default settings

Right! That does change matters. Now it is making 8 million plus over the same period. However, I wonder how stable such a performance would be if the settings make such an enormous difference as for being very profitable or not. Ranges can change, also for EURUSD.

Here is a link for discounted Legend ($200 off). Note, the seller doesn't have a landing page (website) with the discount on, you'd have to click the above link which directs straight to payment. Verify that you are indeed paying CuttingEdge Forex and it's not just me having you on and getting you all to send me $300 by checking the paypal name once you log in to process payment!

The website: here (http://HTTP://DONNAFOREX.CUTTINGEDGEFOREXLEG1.C2STRACK.COM)

Note in the interests of transparency: the forum gets a very small commission if you buy using my discount link. I purposely chose to take the smallest commission offered to give you the lowest price with the seller.

The seller is very helpful and communicative via email but won't be able to join us on the forum as they're busy.

Great stuff, Donna! I just used the link to get the Apex scalper. Worked very well and I am correctly forwarded to the 'thank you for buying page' on the Cutting Edge Forex site at the end of the payment process. Will be live testing this for a bit and decide whether I should get the Legend one as well later.

( https://www.myfxbook.com/members/CEF_EAs/legend/2677048 ) from the vendor; it would be interesting for you to develop  a live account for GBP/USD.

Regards,
HumbleTrader

Same settings for USDJPY?

Default settings, except for risk preference.

Regards,
HumbleTrader

1.9 is out, but not downloadable yet, except on mq.

i am sure it will be any day.

Version 1.9  2018.11.15
New default settings for EURUSD M15.

Don't you mean 1.8? If he already released 1.9 now, a day after 1.8, that would be impressive...

Version 1.9  2018.11.15
New default settings for EURUSD M15.


It would be nice on the download page if each new version is named so, ie: LEGEND_v.1.7, LEGEND_v.1.8. etc., so we know if we are downloading the latest version.

Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: yshin on November 17, 2018, 12:02:35 AM
I emailed Joseph about version 1.9 at MQL5 and this is his reply:
"At MQL5.com when I was doing the update to v1.8 I accidentially submitted it with some test variables hidden. Well, I had to un-hide them and re-submit the EA and I can't submit 1.8 twice over there so it had to be submitted as 1.9.

So to be clear. 1.8 and 1.9 are EXACTLY the same and the next version will be v1.10

I apologize for any confusion this may cause. I thought about putting out a renamed v1.9 over at my website but it just seemed silly to do that. just for a version number. There will be an update in a week or two and it will be v1.10

All live reference accounts are running v1.8

1.9 is just at MQL5 and it's really just version 1.8 that I had to submit twice to moderators."
Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: reinerh on November 17, 2018, 12:34:00 AM

heard from joe, i can confirm 1.8 from the web site is the latest version,

Does anyone have any idea why max spread is set to 10.0? This seems a bit much, assuming it is pips not points.

Have put this to Joseph, but no response yet. The one reason I can think of is that he does not want to miss entries or exits during high volatility when the spreads go up. But still, 10 is a lot to lose on spreads, even if it is not a scalper.

It's looking better!  Going the right direction at least.  :-)

Since this move was based on an FOMC related speech and a softening of US interest rate rhetoric, it really should continue going up unless of course some other news or speeches send it back the other way.  lol!

i am always surprised by the EA...

Humble account show only GREEN trade in profit... MASTER account of the VENDOR looks paused, nothing trade...

seems that i am the only one that have continue to have problem/loss (and other)...

my JPY trade was opened with large different lotsize, on EURO i have 4 STOPLOSS... very good day for me... really... i continue to spend money on SERVER and EA and this is the RESULT...

i am very disappointed at this point... not possible to have all these problem... i spend money and lost time...
Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: reinerh on November 29, 2018, 11:54:51 PM

the last sequence i had a loss as well, the one before gained but now back to zero.

but one has to see this long term, yearly for legend.

i expect one more good move before the year is up, sure hope i am right.

i follow suggestion of vendor, setting and setfile... the mt4 run on DEDICATED SERVER (not shared vps)... ping to broker is 9/10ms...

i do not understand WHY i continue to have different result... i am wrong, not 4 loss BUT 5 for my last session...

i am disappointed...

Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: reinerh on November 30, 2018, 12:29:41 AM

bigger accounts vs humble had same trades as you atomico. humbles small account had a lower trade count due to being smaller.

due to partial closure pip count is meaningless, but here is what my chart looked like, across all my brokers were matching.

and today was a loss no question.
Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: compujock on November 30, 2018, 03:42:36 AM
I had losses with Legend as well in these last few days.   Legend is well in the negative overall for me so far, but I've only been trading it since the discount was offered here, so it's too early to tell how good this bot is.  But having traded outbreaks or momentum strategies or whatever you want to call them for many years, I agree with Reinerh's assesment. 

All of these type of strategies that I've used have their ups and downs.  Many times there are spikes on news and after the spike price reverts to pre-spike after awhile.  On these occasions these bots will loose money, but every now and then there is a great spike and very nice continuation, often times these come on unexpected news or on speeches that have to do with interest rate hikes and on these continuation spikes, these bots make up for the losses and make some profit.  To trade this style you have to be very patient and trade with low risk, maybe even lower than default if you can't stomach the losses that you will certainly need to sustain while waiting for the big win.

Yes, I second this.  I had losses too, but I am trading with much larger lots than humblefx.  It seems the issue is similar to the issue we are having with Best Scalper, it works good for tiny lots, but not for large lots due to lack of liquidity.  Same happens during spikes, there is a lack of liquidity and larger lots get slipped worse than smaller ones.

yes,

your grabbed image is the perfect copy of my session.

this is what i not understand, why my little account not match the other... i am starting with 1000, not 10.000 or over...

the only different is the risk, i am using more respect the default setting...

how write COMPUJOCK, it's impossible to made money with high lotsize... it's really annoying...

I also have more loss than profit so far, but not been running it for very long so the jury is still out. It does seem to do worse than HumbleTrader's account thus far. Which broker are you using and how many trades did it open on the 28th on EURUSD, that have been closed the 29th? Just the four?

looks that there is little difference from different broker...

wait for next session and hoping that go better

during spikes on eu = real ones like we just had those have the best liquidity one can hope for, since it was fomc caused. only slippage could be an issue but legend is not a tickscalper.

so far my bt seem to show same losses vs forward btw, but cant download enough bars just yet. by tomorrow i will run bt again.

i can assure you that you had almost no slippage, and since it goes for much higher pip targets its simply not of concern seen longer term.

pretty sure joe is quite busy after a larger trade sequence. with customers still being a bit unsure about things.

not all s1 trades can be winners, losses have to be taken along the way which can easily be seen in backtests.

maybe we get lucky one time before the year is up, would be nice if mr market means it good with us.

good evening to all,

at this day again nothing reply from Joseph... i really hope that after the new update he reply to me and other user...

about the EA i think there is a bug/problem inside... the problem is with high lotsize and/or account with much money...

i have executed 2 different backtest: last month and from beginning of 2018... the result are very interesting, show the attached image.

how joseph suggest me, to have similar result to the MASTER account i have to set the PERCENTAGE OF CLOSE to 20/25

yes, setting this value is GOOD idea BUT IT WORK ONLY if i running a backtest FROM beginning of NOVEMBER 2018... if run the test from JANUARY 2018 the same result on NOVEMBER are DIFFERENT... i think this is because the capital is growth up in the meantime (from january) respect starting from november

i think that the EA need some accurate checking on WHY these great discrepancy... i am WRONG???

see the images:


sorry for the bad saturation vision of BUY TRADE (it's not very clear to see difference)

Uploaded the latest version of Legen 1.10; I am not sure however how Joseph skipped from version 1.8, skipped version 1.9 and landed 10 steps back to 1.1; I think there is something not right with the math? If he skipped 1.9, then shouldn't this be version 2.0 or perhaps 1.81, 1.82.. etc? Minor details.  :-\

Well, whatever as long as this is updated internally and gives better results, I will be more than satisfied whatever the numbering. Lol  :D

I find a few interesting things about this Vendor that seem to be overlooked when it comes to judging their veracity:

1 - On their own myfxbook account there are no trades since the 12th November.
2 - Customers, like me, do not get notified by the Vendor that a new version is available. I don't get that we have to rely on someone here making direct contact to find this out.
3 - Why are there no Preset Alt files available in the Members section of their own web site?

I do not know why this Vendor is so "special" that the normal scrupulous attention other Vendors get from members here does not seem to apply to him/her.

Just my 2 bobs worth.

1, there was a vps crashing issue, that why last sequence is missing.

2. this morning i brought that up to joe directly.

3. is in the works = posted set files on web site.

from my perspective i can tell you that coding backtesting and customer support, and web site etc is a huge task, especially at the beginning. like 3 months from now i am quite sure things will look much better.
 
and the improved exit strategy is a huge improvement for which we all should be gratefull for, see my posted bt above.

I added this system to my watchlist. Hopefully it will be good, but at this moment I'm sceptical probably because of SFE. That system has similarities with Legend and it's results were really bad this year. Jimmy the guy promoting it is quitting as it didn't make any move he was hoping for over a year. It was always one step forward and two steps back.

I hope this one will perform as good as with backtests.

sfe failed end of 17 same as mine and several more. legend is somewhat similar yet it did not fail.

s1 is the momentum strategy, but s2 is a s/r strategy so a different animal. you can run one or both, all inputs are open.

none or less markets can change, and its always wise to know when to stop. this is key to any system knowing when to stop and adapt or engage a new one before giving it all back.

Post by: Humble Trader's Fx on December 09, 2018, 10:52:31 PM
If Joseph is listening, one aggravating issue that needs to be dealt with the logic is when you for whatever reason, ie: Add the EA to the chart without checking off any of the common features ( Allow live trading, DLL), it closes the entire chart and EA. This can become an issue when you are running numerous charts with numerous EA's. For instance, I wanted to park all instances of GBP pairs for the upcoming "event" on Tuesday and when I clicked off, "Allow live trading", there went the entire pair(s) and EA.

Just an irritating glitch.

none or less since apex goes for small pips its feed dependent, so working well on broker x means nothing unless you are on the exact same feed.

best to run .01 forward for like 3 months and see on which of your brokers it performs best.

I am running Apex on IC Markets, but on a mixed account which is a mess if you don't filter, so I won't share it.

Have been running it since October. It has been more or less break even, really. Small wins most days, SLs a couple of times. For now GBPUSD is just barely in profit and EURUSD slightly in loss.

but if market not change i end AGAIN in LOSS...

Legend had a winning trade yesterday on EURUSD for me, with part of it closing today. This one was more or less according to the book, it seems.

winning??? where??? i have a FULL SL on EURUSD... VERY LITTLE recover today on same pair... now AGAIN in LOSS open trade SELL EURUSD...

you did not have a full sl, one trade so far was closed in a loss, but not full sl which would have been 1384.

sequence is not over, but it sure does not look too promising currently. very hard to tell where it will be going, will keep fingers crossed.

If you follow my signature widget,  Legend is down 1.23% for the month, so yes, thus far, the EA is in DD but that is normal for an EA, it all depends when you got into the market using a particular EA. Let's stay positive for now and hope in the next 13 or so trading days, it will reverse the monthly loss and then some.  :)

small lot gains are partial closures = exit strategy. closes like every 10 pips i think and lets the rest run for its internal tp.

yeah today does not look good.

run a visual backtest and you can see how it trades, then you will understand.

Can someone test this for BTCUSD market? ICMarkets offers crypto trading. I would like to know the results. This is a volatile market and 1 pip is equal to 100 points in mt4. Spread is about 5-6 pips or 500-600 points.

When support/resistance breaks in BTC it breaks big time and this strategy might work there. Please let me know if somebody is willing to do it or I can if you help me with EA and we can test on demo.

Oh well... I was talking about the sequence that started yesterday, not today. That one ended in profit for me. The one that started today was less good, alas. Fewer trades, but higher lot sizes. So I still end the day in the red, too.

Hello, Atomico.

I am not sure I understand your post.

(a) According to my live account (see my widget), the last "Live" Legend trade was, 12.20.2018 12:00    EURUSD:

"1701    12.20.2018 11:11    12.20.2018 12:00    EURUSD    Buy    0.01    -45.00    135.00    1.14396    1.14770    37.4    5.03    48m    0.99%"

I would not look greedy,

but i think that JOSEPH have to consider to STOP (or LIMIT) the number of license for this LEGEND expert...

today i receive a news notify for reduced price for the bot.

i think that less EA are running on live better for the customer that have purchased the bot.

i understand that many license is many money for the seller, but (for me) better to have little client and give best support for them...

I don't think this is a fair conclusion;  most vendors have sales this time of the year.  As you can see from my signature test account of the Legend EA'S,  the gains are not astronomical but neighther do I have losses since October;  this being the worst time of the year.  I am not voting for this product just yet, nor am I condemning it's perfirmance:Unless I see at least 3 months of data on any EA, I remain impartial.

Could be. You need a lot of patience with this one, but how long are you willing to wait for that good breakout? If you lose constantly each month and then get a hail Marry every 10th month you are still in a loss or the most you get is BE. I hope it succeeds but looking at myfxbook it doesn't look good.

Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: FLechdrop on January 17, 2019, 01:43:14 PM
Somebody in the MQL comments suggests building a large portfolio (he uses 26 set files on two pairs) to smooth out the equity curve. I think it may be a smart strategy, in general, though not sure if having so many set files for the two same pairs is prudent. Still, the curve for the portfolio he posted looks good.
Title: Re: LEGEND and Apex set files
Post by: Humble Trader's Fx on January 17, 2019, 05:00:55 PM
It would be appropriate for Joseph to place all ( most updated) .set files " which he considers best and most up to date" in the login website page of his site so that we do not have to wonder all over different forums as to what are the latest developments and updates.  :)

Just comparing my results on IC Markets with HumbleTrader's AxiTrader results and noticing some significant differences.

Particularly, the Apex GBPUSD sell trade starting 01.15.2019 17:20 ended with a profit of 49.9 pips for HumbleTrader and got stopped out at break even (0.9 pips) for me.

The Legend EURUSD sell trade of 01.15.2019 11:20 ended with a profit of 26.4 pips for HumbleTrader and was not even taken on my account.

Anyone else running it on IC Markets, who can confirm getting the same results? Could it be because of a 'smoothed feed', and does AxiTrader then not have it?

I wonder if this is a "normal" trade (others have it) or something out of the ordinary which I should intervene and close?

I stand corrected, reinerh. ;) I looked quickly at the platform upon which I had the USDJPY chart open in being an Apex one. This only took place, after I uploaded the "Legend v1.10 USDJPY M15 alt 1.set", which I had downloaded from the MQL5, site; I wonder if these "alt" set files are sanctioned by Joseph? That is why I have asked that any updates, including .set files, be included on the Legend site (downloads).
Anyway, I closed the trade at a nice profit but which I could have done days ago when it was double this. :P

we had a decent sequence with legend, but sells did not go to tp, closed for small profit. currently in buys, we shall see.

eu seems to be boxed in, extremely tight ranges which is very odd to me. maybe next week with fomc we finally get a good move, its long overdue.

I have witnessed Legend, go into substantial profit so many times, only to stay in the trade too long and then go south; what a pity.  :'(

Sorry about that FLechdrop, there were four XAUUSD trades, it's just that the magic numbers got messed up along the way when I made an update.  :-\  I have increased the equity a slightly in this account and hopefully it will do better: According to what was recomended then, on MQL5, was to turn off S1 and only run S2;  I think this pair needs further tweeking, so if you have the time you might want to see if you come up with a better .set.

Autoresponse is when the email service sends you an automatic notice that your email has been received and you will be contacted at some time in the future when the receiver thinks he will be able to personally call you back.
In otherwords, next time you send an email to support, you might receive a message back right away, such as... "We have received your message atomico and we will contact you in 24 hours." or something like that.

the overall profit as long you run same risk as offical should be darn close.

good morning guys,

this EA continue to made me crazy and angry... the last session was impressive, XAUUSD made a lot of pips in floating but at the end it finish WITHOUT close the trade (i close it manually)

on MASTER account the bot look working good, it open and close the trade BUT on my account it happens with DELAY or, in bad case, NOT CLOSE...

i am really disappointed and frustrated... i write to Joseph again (the reply from suport need 3-4 days if i am lucky) and i am much more desolate to hear from him that seems i am the only one to have all these problem with the EA...

i send to Joseph many detail and pictures of my encountered problem, i try to explain to him what happens on my vps and what i see... but i am not sure if my feedback is considered or not...

after many months of usage now i see the great potential of this expert but need more refine by the coder...

not sure if my broker use plugin to interfere with the EA, or if the datafeed can made these difference from the master account...

what leave me desolate is the sensation that the customer support is not interest to my problem/feedback...

good weekend to all

P.S. sorry for my bad english
P.S.S. just to let you know, finally (i start in october LEGEND) my account reach a new equity high... from 1.000 to about 1.200 (and trust me, the EA lost MANY GREEN PIPS in these months)

broker datafeed can made these difference in trading live?

what a hell broker i have to choice???

I have seen this happen time and time again;  Legend will make a good entry but hold on too long until there is a reversal and down to negative territory. Perhaps you can run a few tests reinerh or Joseph and come up with a sweet spot for  x gains but which in the long run, would avoid these catastrophic losses.

See if you can work your magic and come up with a new series of ☆.set files for this EA.

Hello, Joseph and nice to see you finally solved the login issues.

Questions:

1- Why don't you package the .set files along with your updated EA's or at least have a separate folder for such in the member's area for download?

2- Can you explain the use of the added "hard exit trailing stop function", (a) How it works, with example(s), (b) Why do you include it now and (c) Why you do not use it as default?

3- I find that Legend, often enough, makes good entries but remains in too long, whereby a reversal takes place and all profit is lost and then some; how about such solutions as taking half profit off etc., or whatever else might be applicable?

HumbleTrader
Title: Re: LEGEND
Post by: Cutting_Edge_Forex on April 17, 2019, 10:26:58 PM
Atomico thank you for the kind words. We can start over fresh.

Humble here are the answers to your questions. Let me know if anything needs more explaination.

1) Good idea I will include them in the zip/installer for future updates and you will be happy to hear there already is such a folder in the member's area with settings and strategy tester reports for the settings. I will attach a pdf that shows the highlights of the 2.0 release and also images of the links for current settings in our members area and at the MQL5 market. In the future I will post the settings here as well or at least links to the settings.

2) The hard stop function simply uses a hard stop (at the broker) for the trailing exit and break-even functions. Honestly I do not recommend it. I added it after numerous request from a few clients with huge trading accounts. I think it is more of a security blanket. The reason I will not be using it is we already have safety measures in place including an orphaned trade check after re-initialization and a hard stop (initial broker stop loss placement) for the event of internet interruption, platform freeze, power outage, etc.. The hard stop for trailing will keep the stop closer yes, but it will be hit more often than the "virtual stop" we use by default. The reason for that is Legend trades only on "bar close" and many times the price will dip below the trailing stop but never CLOSE below the trailing stop, thus keeping the trade alive and in the long term much greater profit accumulation. So it's up to you the individual trader what you prefer to live with on a daily basis.
3) For controlling losses we use break-even, trailing stop, and partial closings. I think you'll find v2.0 does a better job taking more off the table on a daily basis and as the strategy tester shows still hangs on during strong movements. It's a balancing act. I agree that it needed some work. Perhaps we can improve upon it further, In v2.0 we are now taking profits sooner, with less spacing required between closings. Of course the percentage that is closed can be adjusted to anything we want. I will post some settings using a higher closing percentage. I will also note this is a breakout EA making profit (or at least keeping losses minimal) during a time where most breakout EAs are in draw down. I believe the markets are beginning to wake up a bit and favor this type of system again however ;)

Atomico thank you for the kind words. We can start over fresh.

Humble here are the answers to your questions. Let me know if anything needs more explaination.

1) Good idea I will include them in the zip/installer for future updates and you will be happy to hear there already is such a folder in the member's area with settings and strategy tester reports for the settings. I will attach a pdf that shows the highlights of the 2.0 release and also images of the links for current settings in our members area and at the MQL5 market. In the future I will post the settings here as well or at least links to the settings.

2) The hard stop function simply uses a hard stop (at the broker) for the trailing exit and break-even functions. Honestly I do not recommend it.

miss few the trade today.

i have not updated the expert because i have a JPY trade still open from yesterday... yes, i got the good EURO series, but unfortunately the last 2 positive SELL are not present on my account.

i do not update the bot for fear to losing control of the JPY trade... probably the right choice was to close the trade and update the bot (yesterday)

now i have 1 BUY and 1 SELL on JPY (negative, same as Joseph account), plus 1 SELL on EURO... i hope that JPY decide UP or DOWN direction, just to close all and install new version.

last trade on GOLD show good performance, if market is good the expert can made good return... i need to be keep calm and relax...

today i ran away from everything... wife, children and me...

I "did"; closed it for a small loss. I don't like to carry trades open over the weekend.


Have a good one Atomico.  :)
