I am not sure that new pair eurnzd can make money with the swap rate that it has. It is bad at an average broker but if you are trading at FxPig you might want to skip this pair. I think with the commission added to triple swap day it is going to be around $80 USD for a long trade on one full lot. It looks like only the brokers will win on this trade.
I would like to see more control over the timing of trades.

Hello bearnakedbull,

I think you overestimate the swap costs a bit.

I made two backtests for you to compare the long term results, based on the current (honestly really high) FXPIG swap rates.

Here are the current rates I used for the backtest:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4c2666rle8uzp4d/EURNZD_swap_settings.png?dl=0

Here are the results without swap costs:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/olt9vbws600yadx/EURNZD_without_swap.png?dl=0

And here are with swap costs:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/lff6o6klm59ejll/EURNZD_with_swap.png?dl=0


Both backtests are done with 1000 USD, 0.1 fixed lot per trade from 01.01.2011 - 28.12.2018 (like the newly published backtests on our website)

As long as there is no bug in the swap calculation with TDS2, I would say that it could be a profitable pair too.

Thank you for all of your hard work. For now I have just switched the "Short" only trade in the common property box so that I can benefit from the positive swap. It is an easy solution for now.

Hello, legna.

I am not the person best qualified but since you might want to get started, I will answer your questions and stand to be corrected by others or at best by Cyborg team when they get to your question:

1- Attach the EA to all charts of all currency pairs recommended.

2- As I understand it, Cyborg adjust time automatically as per your broker.


Hope this helps for now.  ;)

Hello legna,

Yes you can choose the 5 pairs you like to trade by attaching the expert to this 5 charts.
You can leave the max. correlated trades per currency by the default settings or even reduce it to 1, if you like to reduce your risk.

You can find a detailed explaination with a example in the instruction you should have, when you bought Forex Cyborg.

You can write us at support@forexcyborg.com, if you miss this document.

Hello, Paul.

May I suggest you minimize that, "Leave a message" tab; it's annoying and a visitor cannot examine your site: At least put it to the side small enough so that it doesn't hinder someone wanting to scroll down and visit your site.

leave message shows up bottom right as a little flag, thats not all to intrusive.

upon landing, hit get started and there you have it all.

Right, now I saw the green tab after 5-6 visits; if you scroll too quickly to avoid the tab (intuitive) you will miss the green rectangle; perhaps a user's manual, to begin with, might save the day.  ;)

May I suggest two tabs, one green "Move on", the other, "Leave a message".

Its been a bad day for EA's today by the way the market has whipsawed: Although I haven't had any major losses "yet" (positions are still open); Cyborg's GBP/CHF is down 401 pips while the Legend's USD/CAD is down 101 pips.  :'(

Any prayers welcomed.   ;)

I have been very happy with Forex Cyborg last year. I stopped the EA this year when the British parliament decided on the Brexit agreement (or I should say did NOT). In the end, I never transitioned to 1.3 and did not trade the EA so far this year.
Now that I want to get it started again, I am moving the whole thing to a new server and use it as an opportunity to rethink my settings.
So I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on (a) which pairs to use (or just all) and (b) whether to use the correlation protection or not.
One way or the other, this must be the EA that has made me the most money so far, despite the hit early January. Hopefully, it was not just working in 2018. So hard to know with markets always changing.

Welcome back  :)
I'm happy you have a positive review about Forex Cyborg.

I recommend to use all pairs, but there are some users that pick a few pairs only. Maybe some of them can reply here.

The flash crash early this year hit quite hard. Without it, the performance would look quite good.

Running Forex Cyborg at a low risk setup seems to be a good idea too:

Hello, Cyborg and thank you for being here.

Will you please give us some ranges as to what you concider low, medium and high risk, in % terms.  For example, do you know the risk allocation of the forex Germany post?
