    It IS the magic machine EA! I got my hands on a copy of it yesterday. The ordermodify error you're talking about I actually experienced with the magic machine ea also. Not sure what the issue is there but when I say they ripped it off, they REALLY ripped it off. Stuff like this annoys me so much. These guys at 4xproject.com just did a thing about them.

    I'm working on this for other pairs in my spare time here but optimizations are taking a long time. I like it alot though, good work funyoo.

    Finding its hard to focus in on what's really the best or easiest parameter to modify. It does so well on EUR/USD; others Ive been piecing through, breaking even for the year for the most part.

    Funyoo - have you found anything in particular that, when changed, provides a better performance?

    So far I've found that simply adjusting the ATR values helps, as does the expiration time on the stop orders. Messing around with the stochastic helps sometimes but can be cumbersome.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Hi funyoo,

    Great work!
    How have you optimize those parameters? I can't obtain the same results with your preset file. My broker is Alpari UK. Should I re-optimize vForce EA?

    Ohhh...I didn't realize...You've optimized the EA with a 4 digits broker! I changed TakeProfit and StopLoss values! It worked perfectly!!! Thanks again.

    Hi funyoo - after experimenting alot with various settings, I'm finding that by simply adjusting the ATR values is providing the best step in terms of performance on other pairs.

    There's one issue that seems to be the killer though, and that is when it will hold onto losing positions for simply too long.

    One thing I noticed, and I could be wrong about the backtest, but when positions are drifting for any more than a day they take massive hits, closing 48 (or whatever) hours later for big losses.

    I've had success with other ea's that close losing positions after x hours, why I ask but other's experience might say otherwise.

    This is the type of ea where if it hits, it hits, if it doesnt, chances are 50/50 that it will. A simple time filter, or filter that closes losing positions after x hours (usually around 26-30 Ive found), could cut many losses in half.

    OR

    Another option would be to install a filter that closes all losing positions after confirmation of trend reversal. Like if the upward moving PSAR gets broken to the downside by price, for example, or changes to sell mode. If you run a backtest and look at the indicators/all this afterwards you'll be able to see what I mean.

    You want to be able to install a filter that doesnt knock out potential winners but caps losers as quickly as possible. It will trade, trade trade and then get hit with one to four losses which put it out of commission for a while.

    In terms of entries, I havent really come up with much of a better way. Extending the Bears parameter to around 30 or 40 seems to help on other pairs, and lowering the ATR period and multiplier.

    Anyway, hope this helps. Let me know what you think. If anyone has any other ideas on the above please go ahead!

    Default Improvements proposal

    Hello all,

    I'm a newbie to forex and the experts.
    I work a lot of hours at my work, therefore trading with expert looks to be
    a best option for me.
    I've studies a plenty of experts
    (Automatic forex grail [scam!!!], Megadroid, FAPTurbo and Magic trading machine[Thiefes!]).
    I liked the idea of magic trading machine most of all (surely did not purchase it!)
    since it is not a scalper. I found the vForce forum and I really like it!
    I'm a C++/C# programmer, so, I hope I will be able to learn MQL quickly...
    I'd like to propose some improvements to the expert:
    -Allow working with multiple curreny pairs.
    -Set stop loss according to support/resistance and not to predefined value.
    -Set stop loss according to support/resistance and not to predefined value.
    -Prevent expert from trading on friday (only manage open orders).
    -Allow setting maximal spread for currency pair.
    -Present Maximal spread and current spread in the chart.
    -Present broker information, maximal and current spreads in the chart.

    What do you think of it?

    Default Constraining Losses

    Ok so I've been working on this thing alot with other pairs. So far so good.

    Biggest issue I'm facing which I cant get around through the given parameters, without actually changing code, is the ability to close losing positions earlier.

    Take a look at this pic. These are the types of situations that get this EA in trouble. There are 4 times on this chart that generated big losses.

    If all of these were closed when the PSAR went from buy to sell mode or vicea versa, these losses could have all been cut down dramatically.

    Sometimes it helps not to have this functionality, no doubt, the ea will lose a greater number of positions with it.

    That's why I'm thinking a time filter to close trades after X number of hours might be better solution. No way of really knowing until testing.

    Even with the losses, I was still able to get a profit from GBP/USD by playing around with the settings. Its just these big losses that keep it back. Need to constrain them somehow and its good.

    But no way of really knowing until testing.
