These messages are appearing on my demo experts file every 5-30 seconds as well.....very strange..not sure how long the broker would allow this in live trades....eating up so much server space..

2020.01.24 03:33:01.539   DaxBotEuV1Demo DE30,M5: NO TRADE TIME - EXIT

your broker does not care about that, its only log files within the terminal. still these messages make no sense at all.

Hi,
Reinher is correct, its local file only, very small.
We agreed it more nuisance than anything.
In V2 it will be removed along with very nice user dashboard.
We wanted to get people at least trying EA now, code is perfectly fine, just needs some cosmetics on front end.

hi guys,
Well end of week, poor start but 3 winners to finish leaving sequence of LLWWW this week.

Biggest slippage we seen on DAX today nearly 20points, huge stock order creating a momumental long spike:
https://www.myfxbook.com/members/DaxBot/daxbot-admiralprime/3673605

Slippage Swings both ways, overall will tilt in our favour as win rate >60%.

+7% on week and 28% on month. Superb. New equity high.

People ask why sometimes EA take profit is 17.50 and not 20, like today. This is because EA TP and SL are calculate based on the candle open, and not actual open price. this ensures we maintain actual forward trading in line to backtest which always have perfect entry.

Good win/loss ratio this month at 12/17, >70%

In coming weeks we launch:
1. New WebSite
2. EA mods - Remove trade time data scroll that can be annoying.
3. EA mods - Account Dashboard - Show balance, next lot size, account number, demo, live, etc.
4. New EA settings that will target "no loss" days, EA will keep trading until its profitable on that day.

Thank Guys for testing us and have a good weekend.
We 100% appreciate your inputs to make a better product.
I believe we have very good product and with your help will make it even better,

Matts

Yes, it's VPS space that will be the concern.  The daily logs may get purged after a whule, but you can go into the folder and delete yourself - should not need to worry about that though.

hi,
We run EA since Nov 18th, never had to purge yet on Basic VPS

 Why are the lot sizes changing  according to Myfxbook  ?
 sometimes  20pips = 3%   and 20pips= 7%

For some reason I did not get a trade today either on Pepperstone demo.  All is setup correctly with live trading enabled, smiley face etc on the GER30 5 min chart.

I adjusted the lots fdown from 20 to 2 and max lots from 40 to 4, but that should not have a bearing.  Also closed the chart first and reattached the EA.  Will see what appens next week.  The EA is definitely running as I'm getting all those expert log messages from it each tick....

Hi.
That's strange. You on   PC or VPS.
Please send log files of EA and any other log files  to admin@daxbot.eu
Dont want to clutter thread with support.
We will put on pepperstone demo next week also.

I'm matching Daxbot trades ( without +ve slippage) using icmarkets demo thus far - good to hear of the planned improvements...it would be very interesting to see how allowing more trades per day removes losing days in a back test..

Found the reason for no trade :-

0   00:14:58.725   '33795': order sell market 20.00 GER30 sl: 0.0 tp: 0.0
1   00:14:58.913   '33795': order sell 20.00 GER30 opening at market sl: 0.0 tp: 0.0 failed [Not enough money]


That was with a $10k demo account and lotsize of 20 (based on the suggestion of 2 lots per $1k balance) - that must be off as I'd initially queried?

Will see how we go next week now that lotsize is set to 2 instead.

Yea.pepperstone demos probably a FCA demo.
So maybe 30:1 or so.
However we have seen high margin requirements on dax on certain brokers.
Best thing is.open a lot on your demo manually and see how much margin was used.
Dax not like FX...big variation broker to broker in instrument name...margin....some use quarterly contracts...some use spot....some use 1.0 lot as 1 per point......in some broker 1.0 lot is a DAX contract and therefore 25 a point. Do your homework.

Again as system developer we urge diligence on broker. Just cos it doesn't work on your broker doesn't mean it's not profitable. We have seen dax spreads.like 3.0 points wide on so called well rated brokers. We can not stress this enough. On top of all this a wide spread will cause latent signals....maybe the bar after ours (5 min late) which is essentially a missed trade.

Have a good weekend folks.

Yea IC pretty straightforward 1.0 lot is 1 point and they dont use quarterly contract just spot.
If they had a all in spread.of 0.7 they would be #1 choice. Good.broker with good service and fast deposit....withdrawal.
They will slightly underperform our admiral due to higher dealing cost but wont be far away.

Try a few 'non ea' demo trades just to check....
