I just want to make one final point that I think everyone understands now.

These EAs that we have been buying are built by developers who in most cases have never really been professional traders - they are retail based - think like retail traders and are restricted in how they approach things by that limitation.

while we are certainly not looking to reinvent the wheel - we are looking at something that they are not really aware of.

Also the time for making an EA putting up a 10 year backtest and selling it are over .. we are all aware that for the most part those EAs once they go on a real account head straight into DD.

it simply is time for a new approach and fresh thinking.

Stir the ship "'Mon Capitaine"; being able to read the stars in the darkness of night, will lead us to safety.   ;)

A new way of trading with the Autotrader

Have been working behind the scenes, having the EA modified as per some of the discussions above, and more importantly changing the approach to using the EA.

We end up having multiple sub-strategies each optimised to different volatility conditions over an 18 year period.

So instead of using the EA Controller to switch strategies on or off depending on profitability, we rely on the market dynamics to determine which strategy or strategies should be running at any one time.

This approach shows great promise but does require a lot of optimisation work. Will hopefully get some live trading under way with this new approach by June so we should know by end of year whether this is worth pursuing.

The image below shows the merged results for five sub-strategies based on a test period from 2010 and using fixed lot size. Current testing is being done on period from 2000 till 2019.

Update on new Trading Strategy

Work is progressing on developing the MA crossover strategies within ATR ranges. The results for merging the strategies for five currency pairs is shown below. Using 99.9% tick data. Some further enhancements are possible for these and work continues on other currency pairs

The second image shows the approach to optimising these strategies over a 19 year period, this time for USDCAD; bringing one MA crossover into play one at a time. In all, four alternate entry MA crosses and one exit MA cross. Note how the Profit, PF, DD and %Profitable trades improves which each additional MA cross.

Further Improvement

As noted in previous post, I have adopted a slightly different approach to the development of these strategies for three new pairs.

So now we have an even better merged performance curve as shown.

Work is now progressing on the other six pairs and will be redoing the initial five pairs with this new approach.

Then we will look at modelling the sixteen or so pairs (up to 60 set files) to maximise the Ret/DD ratio and best year on year performance and minimal stagnation with a view to offering a signal service from a portfolio of these strategies.
