... all pretty boring

The EURUSD market has been going sideways so trades are trapped in no-mans land. And still waiting for the Trend Following EA to complete its 20 trades before it can be allowed to trade on live.

To keep our moderators happy, the live account can be checked here:   :)

A bit of movement

Currently we have two of the EAs trading on live. On the demo account the Trend Following strategy's performance has just dipped below its SMA so that one will not be trading on live until the market improves for that strategy. You can examine the stats here:

Live account: https://www.fxblue.com/users/sydap2003axilive

All going to script at this stage . Note that Trade Win % is better on Live than Demo as it should be.

Update on FXAE BB EA Package Performance

Two of the three EAs are trading on live and are in profit. Only a couple of more trades are needed for the third EA to be eligible to start trading if conditions are suitable.

Note that with these types of O/B, O/S strategies, the trading on live can get out of sync with the trading on the demo when they start at different times - as it is now for me (ie the demo may have a Sell while the live has a Buy). I am not too concerned about that since the demo trading will still provide an indication of market conditions and hence signal accordingly. However, over the Christmas break I may look for an opportunity to stop or close trades on both live and demo, so that they can start trading in sync again.

In the image below, the top two charts are for the live and demo over the same time span and for just the two EAs (Original and Revised). The bottom chart show the performance of all three strategies since inception.

Additional Update

The Revised strategy has been doing particularly well with the Profit Factor now at 6.5 as measured over the last 20 trades on the demo account.

With the settings we have, namely a PF level of 2 on the Controller PF, this means that on our live account we will now be trading twice the normal lot size. Depending on how things go, I may increase the PF level to say 4 at some point in the future which would mean that the doubling of lot size on live would cease once the PF on the demo dropped below 4. And then re-evaluate after some more trading.

In the meantime the performance of the Original strategy on demo has dropped below its SMA20, and hence trading of that strategy on live has ceased for the time being. Trading of the Trend Following strategy could be starting on live next week, since its performance on the demo account is in positive territory, just needing 2 more trades to confirm.

State of Play - why not join in

The top image shows the performance of the FXAE BB Package EAs over the past 35 days on the live account. Monthly 6% at this early stage.

This trading on the live account is managed by the Controllers operating on the same EAs on the demo account. The Controller MA determines when the EA can trade on the live account based on closed P/L being above its SMA20; the Controller PF determines when a second copy of the EA can trade on the live account based on the Profit Factor being above 2.

To date we have had the following on the live account:
1. The Original Strategy traded for a while but was stopped when closed P/L on demo fell below its SMA 20 (so we have protected profit); the pf for the Original Strategy never reached 2 on the demo so no extra trades were taken on the live.
2. The Revised Strategy has been trading profitably and still is, as is the second copy since the pf for the Revised Strategy on demo is above 2.
3. The Trend Following Strategy has now been enabled (Performance Signal = YES) since that EA on the demo has now completed its first 20 trades and closed P/L is above its SMA 20. PF is still below 2 and so the second copy of the EA on the live account has not yet been enabled to trade (Performance Signal = NO).

Year End Update

So far, so good. Now that the Controller selects which of the three EAs can trade on live at any one time, we are starting to see the divergence between the demo controller account, which is flat-lining since all three EAs are trading all the time; and the controlled live account, on which only the EAs that are currently profitable are enabled to trade. The live account is showing a nice uptrend in performance. Which is what we want.

Currently it is the Original strategy that is in DD on the demo and hence not trading on live. Over time we expect the three EAs to cycle through DD periods as the market dynamics change, so that we will have different EAs trading from time to time.

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.)

I see he is charging 49 for the EA now - I was PMd and asked if I could share for free

personally I think that if he is now charging for it - I should not go against that -- I suggest you grab the ma crossover one while it is free - as I think really that is the future -- this BB strategy is bit limiting to me.

In my testing, the Revised strategy is still going strong under current market conditions while the performance of the Original strategy has just peaked its head above the SMA20 of closed P/L, and hence will start trading on live again. During the DD period for the Original strategy, ie during unfavourable market conditions, live trading was stopped by the Controller, so profits from the first good period are still in place.

As to the MA crossover, you can do the same strategy as your eurusdm30 set file for the PZMA crossover, with the FXAE BB EA; and a lot more as shown in the blank set file.
The BB Package remains available for $100

Can somebody share a link to this EA? I look for it on PZ trading website, but they've put it in payment.
I'd like to try it before buy it so I can test it and see if it's the indicator I'm looking for.

So if anyone has the MQL file, pls share it.

Thanks and best regards.

yeah since he is charging for it now - don't feel personally that I should be sharing it for free.

the guy gave away alot of things for free - but now more people are downloading - he is charging - so yeah I would pick up the free ones and if your interested in the paid ones wait for him to have 50% off again .. he does that quite often.

Once they had a lot of EAs and Indicator for free and now they are charging them. So What do you think about this Bollinger bands EA? from their backtest it seems a really great Ea with winning rate of 90 %, is it true?

the BB EA on its own won't make money

I made a set file for it that shows to make it profitable but it also suffers from ups and downs.

If I wanted to use that EA - I would buy the package from DIY for $100 and use his controller on it.

the reason being you cannot keep selling a rising market if EURUSD decides to go from here to 1.25 -- you need something to stop it from doing that

in current choppy markets it is fine but trending not so much.

This is part of a big conversation we are having at the moment - on how exactly an EA should trade and adapt itself -- not trade with the same set file as 5 years ago.

anyway that is just my opinion
