Hi everyone,

I bought this EA over the weekend, and after authorizing it in the Member's area after the purchase, I've started running it on a Demo account today. I'm finding in the info box that the EA is not correctly authenticated, since the FTD website is currently down...

can anyone else using this EA confirm if it will take any trade(s) if it can't "phone home" ?

I check the website of forextrenddetector.com and it gives a Go Daddy landing pasge. Looks like the domain has not been renewed in time. If you can't authenticate so will a lot of others. Pretty bad from a company that also markets Wall Street EA.
Trading should be boring otherwise you are losing money.

yeah, I've noticed that too - I'll send them a support ticket with my activation/authorisation questions in the meantime!

cheers

it turned out that I needed to restart MT4 in order for the activation to occur successfully - the support team did reply back to me after a couple of days.

somewhat related - the EA hasn't taken any trades since the end of January either on the vendor's demo account, my demo account (forward test) before changing to my real account, or running a backtest from Feb 1st 2017 up until today.

Can anyone else on the forum using this EA confirm that it's not taken a trade since January?

Today, I decided to finally put it to rest in the EA's forgotten bin.

Yes, you can set it at .5% or less; lot size to .01.
