Well, we all know that there are just no holy grail EAs that can turn your $1000 into a million in one year with little to no drawdown, without risking your account from getting wiped, and continue working for the long haul!
Friends, sorry to say that so far Shocker has been a consistent loser. It seems to get worse with each passing day. For now I have to warn you not to buy. But I'll keep testing for at least the end of this new month.
Take a look at the attached statement.
Does this make up for all the losses?
I mean to say, it's early days yet. Their live test results show a pile of losses as well... but again, it's early days.

As you already suggested it's a bit too early to know if shocker can recover from losses. In the first days of testing this EA I was playing around with different lot size so it's a bit difficult to say when shocker recovers how well it does it. For testing purposes, from here on, I've decided to stick with 1.0 lot.
It appears to me, as with most EAs, that shocker is sensitive to news announcement. So on big news day it can lose and very big. Let's keep watching this EA in correlation to normal and big news day and see what happens. For now I am guessing this EA might be profitable to run maybe 2 to 3 weeks out of each month while turned off for the rest.
Here's today's update.
shacker is 2 here
Only one trade but it was 100%.
