Hi there,

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

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

Cheers,

Byte

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

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

I still have this running on two accounts and I have to say, this election night was great fun with this EA :-) Huge gains ... admittedly coming with significant DD in between but this EA seems to live for this kind of market movement, while unfortunately overall for today so far RobinVOL is negative for me with October settings (did not get to update them to November yet)

We are happy for your profits. The patience is a key using this robot. Unfortunately most of the people does not appreciate it, as it deserves. This robot is virtually impossible to fail if it is used with AutoMM<=0.5. The current choppy EURUSD market is just awful for all breakout based systems, but the Trend Detector manages to stay profitable. Lets hope we will have a nice trend soon.

My patience is rewarded as well. Run low risk and ignore the small loss past months. This is a good EA as part of a portfolio of EAs. In that way, we focus on other busy EA and not get impatient for this EA.

Totally agree: with AutoMM= 0.5 max and patience when the market is choppy, this EA is very good and profitable in the long run anf has one of the best backtest results

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

I have to agree with Anchorpoint. It is nerve-wracking to trade, but has made me very nice money because when it makes money, it makes a lot of money. Unfortunately, I cannot upload screenshots of the FTD performance on my live account. This year it made me over 1300 pips so far (in my case resulting in over 50% gain on the account)

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

Looking at live results since launch, to allow trading (open new pos) on only Wed and Thu will make significant increase in RR. That would be a nice feature in updates of this EA

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

Great results with one basket closed yesterday and another one closed today  8)

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

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

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

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