Not off to a good start

Both the Revised and Trend Following strategies are in uptrend on demo and so trading on live. And with PF >2 for the Revised strategy on demo, the lot size for that strategy on live is now doubled.

Which would be good if they were Buys, but the indicators have said Sell, so sell trades we have; so we have lost a bit and I expect more loss on the way. We'll see. Maybe Trump will tweet up the USD.

(I have started the year with a clean slate in terms of VPS and platforms since I was getting too many glitches. A bit of work repopulating the new platforms and adding the EAs and Controllers to all the charts especially since there were open trades when all this was done. But all in place now and signalling correctly.)

We have taken the hit (9% DD) and both the original and Trend Following strategies were Controlled and out of action on live for most of January. But now all three strategies are signalling Yes again, with the Revised strategy still at double normal lot size (PF > 2), and so we await the market action going into February.

@Diyforexskills: The results you show, are they with or without the controller?

With the Controller (except for the Magic Wand account). The FX Blue link for FXAE BB EA is just for those three strategies with the Controller.
The myfxbook is the same account using the Controller but shows those three plus two other strategies.

OK, got it. It is not very clear to me in the myfxbook which magic is what, though. Could you perhaps indicate it a bit more clearly in the descriptions, or make a list?

The BB EAs are the ones that are named - highlighted in yellow.

Ones which include PF in the name are ones which are traded when PF is >2; my way of doubling lot size when an EA is doing really well. At the moment only the Revised BB strategy has a PF > 2 so those trades are being duplicated, labelled Revised PF. That strategy has scale-ins so we also have Revised PF scale-in.

48164 is one which is available to Autotrader subscribers; 248164 is an ATR- adaptation of that one; and 481812 and 48181211 is a proprietary one with scale-ins.

Giving Trend Following BB Strategy a Rest

I am not liking the rather erratic performance of the Trend Following strategy at the moment so have switched Allow live trading to off on the live account.

(Murphy's Law now dictates of course that the next dozen trades with this strategy will all be winners!)

The image below shows the performance of this strategy on demo account on the top charts - the closed P/L is very jumpy and whipsawing around its SMA20; and PF is poor. As a result the 12 trades allowed on the live account have netted a $50 loss. So I will wait till I see a smoother performance curve from this strategy on the demo account. I am also hoping to improve this strategy once I have the upgraded Autotrader.

The bottom two charts are for the Revised BB strategy on demo account; a much better performance. With PF way above 2, this strategy is now trading at twice the normal lot size on live. Overall this strategy is $53 in profit.

Day of Week

Way too early to be sure but something to watch. Looks like Mondays is not good for all three BB strategies. Image shows loss for 13 trades and further examination shows they are equally spread among the 3 strategies.
