why i cannot use my old bestscalper anymore?
see my attachment below..

You can use the old set file with the new update, so what's the issue?

Regards,
HumbleTrader

have you ever backtest it? and compare the result? it's different.. i prefer the old one.. ( for old set file )

Backtests are meaningless for BS. Just to be safe, I am running both versions (set files) except I only trade the GBP/USD ;)

Have a look at Newboater's live accounts to see how things are going:

I am very close to just pulling the pin on this.

the reason being from 4 - 4.55 pm NYK spreads are fine but after that like today GBP spread goes to 5-10 points -- making it tough to scrape out alot of cash

plus slippage of 1-5 points on top of that .... money would be better allocated elsewhere it would seem to me.

to be clear - this used to be an ATM printing EA - but no longer.

But have a look at Rod's (Nwboater previous, myfxbook) charts, both accounts are doing reasonably well .

I may have missed some trades on one or both of the accounts when I had it off at my VPS. So far the 1k account isn't doing too badly so I just transferred another 1 k into it. I don't plan to increase the smaller account so there will be a comparison of performance vs lot size.

Cheers,

he is at a different broker and the trades are different to mine.

the main thing is spreads - as I said for an hour they blow out - no-one can scalp spreads that wide.

I made a very small profit so far but do not see a future with it -- trade bigger sizes and see what happens

I agree and the possibility of a full ST, can be scary but for small accounts and carefully managed risk, it can be profitable over the long run.

Just to clarify further, Rod, you are using the same .set files for both accounts?

Same here. We could talk chances if spreads remained what they used to be. Yet after the brokers substantially increased the spreads during this bots trading hours, our chances for success effectively amount to zero by any means.
