Thread: Forex Shocker

    Neo-Rio,

    How did you get an unauthenticated copy? Or is it one of those EA's where they say you have to tell them your account number before you can use it on a live account?

    Thanks

    Shocker may be incompetantly coded, but screw that - it works!

    It's one of those ones where you have to tell them your account number before they give you a code which lets it "authenticate"
    I paid for my Forex Shocker. I'm not ripping off the developers.

    I actually don't mind that Forex shocker is erratic. It trades differently on different accounts, which means that brokers will have no idea what hits them during those times, as everyone's execution is different.

    this EA contains bugs and the manual misses the most important part: the optimization processing of the NN parameters. And it needs some optimization as tests on ECN data feed has shown. What else can be done as to crack the EA to be able to fix the bugs..

    very unprofessional package- a real shocker for me!

    Yeah, thanks. That's what I figured. I don't have any problems paying for products either, as long as they're good.

    If you run unauthenticated copy, then it doesn't place stops on 50% trades and who knows what else. So it does trade, but real question do you want to be Shocked by unauthenticated performance with crazy draw downs?

    Haha! Nice pun there! I would like to avoid as much draw down as possible at all times, as I'm sure everyone else does. Thanks for the clarification on how exactly the thing works, I appreciate it.

    Actually yes, now that you mention it, you are right.

    I have noticed a few irregularities with the SLs on the unauthenticated bot... some stoplosses were set to crazy values, but really, that's about all I have noticed between the two. I thought it could be a bug, but I've never seen the stoplosses go haywire on the authenticated account.

    Actually last night, the unathenticated bots traded the EU and the GU, and the SL was set to 116.388 (!!!) and 161.60554 respectively.

    Still, it mades a profit similar to my properly authenticated account....
    *shrugs* I suppose you really need to keep your eye on it though if it's going unauthenticated.... there'd have to be a MASSIVE change in the market during those hours in the wrong direction, AND you'd have to completely oblivious to it's trading to let it go! Plus... that particular situation can be mitigated if you have an EA open that closes all trades should your equity drop lower than a value you specify....
    ...all in all, its fairly weak anti-piracy protection.... unless of course, there's something else in the code that nobody's telling us.

    Cant say because i stopped using it a last week. I have to many EAs running at the moment and needed to stop a few.

    When it was running for me it did very well, but the way people have been talking of late about it glad i stopped when i did!
