Hi Humble Trader,

I definitely wish you luck!

And it will be great if your system can work over the long haul. If so you should have much better R/R than those of us with all pairs.

Cheers,
Rod

In my opinion the strength of a multi-currency scalper with a good Reward / Risk ratio lies in the large number of operations it can do and therefore I will continue to run it on all 18 pairs.
From today I will disable trading on Friday as in the coming weeks the brexit and the duty war could create dangerous gaps.
However, I wish good luck to humbletrader

Hi laracroft,

I have been very pleased to have Friday trading disabled. Besides Brexit we never know what that guy in the White House might say to really disrupt things.

I am also considering disabling all GBP pairs while the Brexit discussions are going on. On the other hand that eliminates a lot of potential profit. Anybody have thoughts on this?

Cheers,
Rod

That is one reason why, Rod, you do not see any GBP pairs on my proposed "limited" list, I am proposing/using:  ;) AUDUSD, CADCHF, EURJPY, CHFJPY.

I use that setting at True, but also tend to manually stop all EAs and close any open trades before market close on Friday.

Did you expect it to close open trades, or just not open any new ones?

Here is what the manual states about the setting:  "StopTradingOnFridayClosing Set it to true, if you dont want that Forex Cyborg place new trades on Friday evening before the market close."

It's not clear to me at what time on Friday that should take effect.

Cheers,
Rod

After setting it to true earlier in the week I  still had trades open less than 1 hour before market close. I closed the trades manually and the EA opened another 4 trades. I closed them manually a few minutes before market closed.

Before I intervened the EA had opened the last trade 1 hour before market close.

These days forex cyborg has reached new highs on the official ICMarkets account of the supplier and also on my account ICMarkets, recovering the last DD within a dozen days.
This has not yet happened on the official FXPIG and DARWINEX accounts.
It seems that the best performance of this ea is with ICMARKETS.
I, however, have disabled trading on Friday because it is too risky

When will the 1.3 version be ready?

Finished the development and prepare all backtests currently.
Will be done soon.

@forexcyborg, any info about the 1.3 version?
Drawdown happens and will always happen.

v1.3 will be released once the main FXPIG account has been fully recovered. This will be (hopefully) in the next days.
I just don't like to change settings during a DD.
That is why I would never stop using a EA during a DD as long as it's with the expected area.
