it is not designed for any other period of time than what we are trading now - so yeah its 2018 or bust LOL

basically double the account and lower the risk is what I will do - then I will reoptimize as needed :)

basically if volatility went higher or lower then

the band needs to be changed and the offset -- as well as TP and SL to counter the change in entry exit risk

besides this is provided for free - not as a commercial EA .. so there are no expectations for it - unlike something you pay $500 for.

I got timed out on Friday - so as I said to someone before in the thread just got to wait 3 months and see how it works out - looking everyday gets bit tiring.

Having said that I have made a new EA in EA Lab - so not able to really share that although maybe able to post the details and you can just make it yourself.

"Timed out' means you set it to close all trades by a certain hour, donbon2? Mine took about 40 pips more loss than your losing trade (I stopped looking as well).

The current buy does not seem to be doing so well either... And, mysteriously, the latest sell it took is only 0.05 lots (I am trading 0.3 now). Any idea how that could have happened?

I dont carry positions over weekend - so when hit my cutoff time on friday - all my positions close out.

you can see the levels I traded on the myfxbook thing.

really every position is designed so it can go 70 pips against you without causing much harm overall -- we just dont want to see 100 pip SL go off often though .. Im just leaving it do its thing .. its pointless to interfere.

I have no idea

its either fixed lots or risk  .. you just change the setting - the setfile was set up for people to just enter a risk value .. as it tests slightly better that way - due to high win rate obviously.

I understand that. But I used fixed lots and so this is irregular. Also, unless I am mistaken, yours does not seem to have taken this trade at all. A bit of a mystery...

In any case, the Trump incident caused a sudden drop of the dollar for which there is no fundamental reason that I can discern, so my expectation is that it will slowly drift back to where it was before... i.e. not good for the buy. Though who knows, I may be wrong...

In any case, it upset the regular ranging behaviour of the pair.

Are you planning to start a thread about your newest experiment?

Well that is strange .. maybe just keep checking against mine then .. just make sure the settings are changed for fixed lot.

I just started an adx stoch ea but most people would not be interested in that ... I also have an AO ea built and tested with 30 pip stop that is about 60 per cent a year .. more people would want to play with that one ... only thing is it is optimized for 2018 so it will need tweaking every 12 months .. I may wait for a more reliable strategy ... from reading here .. people just want one thing with no adjustments .. its pretty hard to find that without spending more time on it.

Also neither of the 2 strategies in my sig are really scaleable .. simply because the losses when they come are large .. so u cant really withdraw profits very often .. because they have high win rates they will make any loss back but for scaling an EA you want something bit more advanced.

Thats what holds them back really .. also the accounts.. risk is high .. you wouldnt want the risk level on 20k

I was asked about fractals - I tried the PZ one and nothing I did made it profitable ... the bottom line is when you sell every low and buy every high -- you might get a few good trades but over time the performance falls away.

The ADX Stoch one is not a PZ - it was one I made in EALab - basically the issue with trading stochs is it only works in a certain type of market -- well if you use an ADX filter for it only trading in a certain volatility it actually works well -- but like I said many people dont like that sort of thing.

I am working on other strategies more advanced more general ones - that will backtest better over more time - so they are bit more robust.

Of the PZ ones the SAR one interests me but I havent found any perfect settings yet - I will play around with it again tonight and look at some new ones as well.

Also I just want to say - I'm not really interested in what happened in 2012 for example - markets are alot different now - put those EAs on an account and it is failure.

Anyway please put any feedback in this thread - and if you have an idea you want me to include or look at please post here and I will try me best. I have gotten pretty good with EALab so I can do quite a bit if needed.

yeah the SAR one works best on 4 hour - but the trade numbers are small and you are at the mercy of the market having to move alot to make any money - honestly I dont think anyone would be interested in that.

I just noticed my 0.05 trade does not even have a stop loss or take profit. It seems the system uses 0.05 lot limit orders somehow that are not supposed to be triggered, but this one was.

Your ADX Stoch seems to be working well, so far.

I will have a look if I can get this EA Lab thing as well. You should be able to get it for free with IC Markets, if you trade enough lots, right? I think I have traded enough for this month...
