yeah what happens because the period is short is the upper BB band is down to like 54 now and will drop over time once the eur stops going down -- so we may end up with a short at 38 and a long at 52 -- anyway you see this all the time on the backtest ultimately this is an EA that you just cant interfere with... as it tries to compensate for adverse moves.

40% DD is as much as you should see at the risk Im running - but it maybe smart to use bit less till we get live history on a real account.

Tempted to interfere, as I don't really see this trade ending in profit... but you think that would adversely affect outcome overall?

its totally up to you what to do really

but the strategy works and it has the 100 pip protective stop - it wont be adding positions or anything like that

really the best way to control things is to run at a risk that your comfortable with -- there is no profit in FX without risk at some point.

Yes, I let it run in the end. And it did go up. Let's see how it ends...

well we got a bounce and got a short loaded as well - so from here if it can trade 10-75 20-80 something like that so we can get both closed for a profit would be nice.

Thank you so much DonBon2 for sharing.
I will try on icm.
Do you think what I should change in set file if my account base currency is not USD?

I use AUD as my base currency - it just means the profit and DD slightly bigger.

many people want an EA capable of making 100% a year - thats what this can do - but to make that - there is risk so just keep that in mind.

Not looking good for the buy now... it was briefly in profit yesterday. Oh well. The sell is doing better, obviously. I guess I should see this long term and not follow things too closely.

that worked out the best it could - full 70 pip TP on the short and a nice bounce to sell again .. that should mean that no matter what we will at least breakeven -- and with a bit of luck if it messes around in the range - may get some nice gain out of it... hard to say right now -- market is bouncing around... depends on the close really.

Yes, very happy with the TP! And the second sell. Hopefully it will end in a profit and then bounce back for the buy to end in profit too...

Oh dear... Trump said something again. Seems it will win us a good outcome for the buy, and then hopefully it will come back down again...

everything worked out the best it could really.

cleared out that stale long - got 2 shorts done and short again - which will make small money on roll points.

from here it is free money - so lets hope it just stays in 100-150 point range for a bit and rack up few more profits.

the outcomes are +10 +25 or +70

Why does it close at +10, though, when break even is set at +20?

Thank you for the work and sharing Donbon, much appreciated!
For me, it is sure not robust enough though. 2018 is so-so. And I backtested starting from 2010 and that was kind of scary.
