Thread: FX Zapper = XBars (SCAM!!)

  1. #1

    Default FX Zapper = XBars (SCAM!!)

    Looks like this new FX Zapper EA that was released is just a stolen copy of funyoo's XBars. Funyoo can you confirm this?

    I was just about to buy it when I read the same thing on babypips forum. Shame on them.

    So funyoo, can you recommend any good EA's that I can actually make money off? I will donate some money to you if I am actually making money.

    Zapper has an impressive backtest and forward test so far. The results are a little different from Xbars. Will you give the settings so that XBars performance can match Zapper? I'm not an Elite member yet, but I'm thinking about joining. Thanks.

    Hi Funyoo,

    I've just joined as your elite member, wonderful forum here. Sad to hear that fxzapper is a copied of Xbar. However, the back test seems different with these 2 ea and fxzapper backtest has lesser trade but is more profitable. Did fxzapper also add in new indicator or filter in their code?How can Xbar setting be improve to match fxzapper performances since it was a copied ea? Thank you.

    Hi guys,

    I'm one of the guys who accidentally purchased Zapper, and become a member of this forum yesterday. I've conducted backtesting for the following three versions from 2008 to now.

    A. Zapper
    B. Xbars (the original set file found in this website)
    C. Xbars with SL 70, TP 10, starthour 11, endhour 2

    From Jan. 1, 2010 to now: A performed best
    2009: B performed best
    2009: B performed best

    So overall I pretty much conclude the original Xbars and the original set file found here is the best.
