The BB plus Controller Package

I have loaded these EAs on my demo/live account combo and waiting till I have a 20 trade history on demo. In the meantime they have been continuing to run on my demo test platform with results as shown.

Two Controller charts for each strategy - the top is the MA version; the bottom is the PF version. Currently using "period" of 20 and PF set to 1.2.

So in this example, two of the three EAs would currently be trading on live; and we would be nicely in profit thanks to the Revised and with at least some of the losing periods on Original and Trend Following having been avoided thanks to the Controller.

Up and Running

The three EAs that come as part of the Package have now been trading for 5 days on the demo account and surprisingly are all in profit -  collectively some $700 (usually whenever I start something new things go into loss! So a welcome change.)

The SET files provided have been set to not start trading on live until we have a trading record of 20 trades (as evidenced by the horizontal lines on the Controller graphs.) I felt more confident about the Revised BB Strategy, so I changed that setting to 10. This has triggered one trade on my live account - the main one and one of its scale-in are currently in loss while the other scale-in has already closed in profit on the BE/Lock pips setting as favoured by donbon2.

Hello Andrew.

I have purchased the BB and controller but have yet to receive download instruction or perhaps a member's login.

Please advise.  :)

Whats the difference between the Bolling Band EA and the original FXAE? What is missing in the BB-modified version of FXAE?

The missing parts are modules for:

1. A triple moving average strategy
2. Two more MTF double MA strategies (one for both entry and exit) to enable MA crosses for entries on multiple timeframes
3. RSI for entry and for exit
4. MACD for entry and exit
5. MA of RSI for entry and exit
6. MA for scale-in exit
7. Basket Management
8. Re-entry trades

Please complete explain how is your strategy and EA work.  Once confident, I will sure buy

The full setup for this system is explained in the pdf attached. The actual EA strategies, all running on EURUSD M15, are as follows:

Original BB Strategy
Fixed Std Deviation for BB but TP and SL is ATR-based. Buy on touch of lower Band; Sell on touch of upper band. Includes a BE/LockPips.

Revised BB Strategy
Variable Std Deviation for BB based on ATR and TP and SL is also ATR-based. Has a wider SL and two scale-ins at -50 and -70. Has partial close. Entries as above.

Trend Following BB Strategy
Fixed Std Deviation for BB but TP, SL and TS are ATR-based. Double MA filter on H1 timeframe. Buy on touch of upper Band; Sell on touch of lower Band; both filtered by MA crossover for uptrend or downtrend. Can also exit on touch of opposite band.

The EA is not restricted to any currency and so can be optimised to run on any pair or timeframe. The EA uses dynamic ATR meaning that any ATR-based values are calculated continuously. This does slow down backtesting but improves performance relative to having ATR calculated only at close of each bar. You have the option of setting dynamic to false. This will mean that the ATR is calculated once only at the entry and hence enables speedier backtesting.

A Simpler SetUp Procedure

Some people are finding the setup routine for the Special Package using SET files somewhat arduous (at least that is the polite way of expressing the experience).   :)

So I have created nine template files to simplify matters. In brief:
1. Load the files you receive into their respective MQL4 folders on both the demo and live accounts. And Refresh.
2. On the demo, open three EURUSD M15 charts and load the three designated tpl files onto those charts. Add your email address as prompted.
3. On the live (or second demo) account open six EURUSD M15 charts and load the designated tpl files onto those charts. Add your email address as prompted. And confirm lot size you want to trade with on the live account (minimum must be 0.02 lot to enable a 50% partial closure).

And then wait for the markets to open and confirm that Signals are being sent correctly. If you leave things as provided, there will be no trading on the live account (each of t he six charts will have a No signal) until a strategy on the demo account has completed 20 trades.

The revised Pls Read this First doc is attached.

If you have already purchased the Package and would like the tpl files to get you started, pls contact me.

For reasons I won't go into, the Package is sent manually by email upon receipt of order notification. I sometimes sleep and I live in Sydney Australia; so there may be a few hours before delivery. Sorry.

Thanks for simplifying things, Andrew.

Nagging question: Does leverage play a part in this? I suppose if both the demo account(s) and the real account have the same leverage there should be no issues but just to verify, especially if you are making a request to the broker for a non-expiring account which you will use and at some point later, decide to use a live account with different leverage.

Leverage is really only an issue when it comes to avoiding margin calls. See for instance https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/06/leverageandpipvalue.asp

The EAs in this Package are not marty/grid types and so not prone to runaway losses. And since the Controller will stop trading on the live account when the EA is in DD, a sensible leverage should not be an issue if you set lot size appropriately.

Since the Controller works on closed P/L, ie the Balance, the Controller should NOT be used with marty/grid type EAs since a DD in equity with these types of EAs can result in a margin call well before a new Balance (closed P/L) can be calculated by the Controller.

So set leverage the same if you want to but the more important thing is to keep the lot size on the demo the same once you have started with a strategy. Otherwise the performance curve and hence the controlling will be compromised. Imagine starting with 0.02 lots and then increasing that to 0.1 lot after some time. Closed P/L will suddenly skyrocket or dive deep thus effecting when the Controller will signal Yes or No.

On the live account however, you can alter lot size whenever to suit free margin requirements.

If your demo is running low, ask the broker to top up the demo account. Better still, start with a $1 million demo account and trade on demo with 0.1 lot max.

Follow Controlled Live Account on FX Blue

FX Blue is my preferred account monitor.  Have not worked out how to get the widget on this page.

But here is the link for the trading of the FXAE BB EA strategies comprised in the Package. Very early days with only one of the EAs trading on live. All three are trading on demo and just waiting for the other two to complete 20 trades before the Controller will decide whether it is safe to trade them on live.

Original BB Strategy now triggered

The original BB Strategy (magic 5716100) has completed its 20 trades and closed P/L (Balance) at that point was above its SMA20. So the Controller has signaled that EA to commence trading  on live - which it has done as can be seen on the FX Blue Monitor of the live account. The Revised BB Strategy (magic 5716101) is already trading on live.
https://www.fxblue.com/users/sydap2003axilive  Select the Orders tab.

The image below shows the two Controllers - MA (top) and PF (bottom) for Original BB Strategy. I have manually added a PF level at 1.0 to see where we are at in terms of PF for this strategy over 20 trades. If PF reaches 2.0, the second copy of the EA on live will start trading too.

An alternative method

This FXAE BB EA Package is sold and run using a demo and live account run in tandem.

But if you want to run these three EAs using just the one account, live or demo, you can do so as long as you also have a copy of the DIY Trade Manager Plus.

We would run that as follows.
1. Run the three EAs continuously on the EURUSD M15 charts.
2. To each of these charts add a Controller MA and a Controller PF.
3. Load a copy of the TM to each of six extra charts - three linked to Controller MA and three linked to Controller PF.

So when the EA is running profitably, Balance (closed P/L) above its SMA20, only the EA will trade. When the PF for that EA goes above 2.0, the linked TM will scale-in an extra trade at +1 pips which will be closed whenever the EA's trade is closed. (so we are doubling the lot size when market conditions are very good, PF above 2.)

When the EA goes into DD, Balance (closed P/L) falls below its SMA20, the linked TM will scale-in a reverse entry trade at -1 pips. This trade will be closed whenever the EA's trade is closed. (so we are hedged and stand to lose only 1 or 2 pips due to spreads and stop/limit orders of the hedge. If the DD looks as if it might go for a while, we could increase the lot size of the reverse entry scale-in somewhat to achieve a net zero or slightly positive outcome).

Template/set files for this combination will be provided on request after purchase.

Early Progress

The demo account has been running since 11 Nov and the first trades  (from Revised Strategy) on the live account were kicked in 21 Nov after I changed the Trade at Start to 10 trades for that EA. The other two start after 20 trades.

So far doing nicely during these very early days. The demo is trading at 0.1 lot per trade; the live at 0.02 lot per trade. Account sizes for reporting have been set to $800 for live and $4K for demo to reflect the different lot sizing.
