    Hi Splaw,

    About: <<If interested in the fix please please let me know.>>

    Yes, I am interested in the fix that you came up with... could be really helpful.

    Hello,
    I'm new to this forum and first want to thank funyoo for posting such a great EA for everybody.
    One thing I noticed though is that on post #3 of v1.1 the statement says that the riskpercent is 23, yet on 2008.02.01 about 7 lots were bought when the balance was $11,000. (s/l = 75).
    Also, on post #15 the riskpercent is 1.78 when on 2008.01.14, 1.7 lots are open at one time on a balance of $9,823. (s/l = 69).
    Am I wrong about something or could there be a bug in the risk calculations?
    Please take no offense, I just thought that if there is an error it would be good to fix it.
    Thanks.

    BTW - the C code looks incredibly good - very elegant.

    Default Interesting comparisons...

    First, thanks to funyoo and everyone who has contributed to this EA -- it seems to really have great potential.

    I've been comparing v1.201a with v1.202. What I've found is that with recent data, v1.201a outperforms v1.202. I am not sure why this is, but 1.201a still has the bug that turns off the sell signal. Put another way, avoiding the sell signal seems to boost performance in the recent market. That is probably too simplistic, but the overall effect is significant.

    The other interesting thing I have found is that the v1.202 EA seems to perform best when Lots is higher relative to margin. So, a $500 deposit with the Lots set to 0.5 (the minimum you can set without having microlots) works really well, but a $5000 deposit with the same Lots value loses money. Changing Lots to 2 or higher, and also raising the Start value of Lots, returns the EA to good performance in the 5K deposit back test.

    I'm going to forward-test v1.201a in a 5K demo account on TheCollectiveFX.com for the coming week. I'll post the results here next Saturday.

    Well, my forward test results on 5-digit broker The Collective FX are in -- a 49% loss in 1 week. Not too good. It seems that the EA does a good job of maximizing profits, but it does an even better job of maximizing losses on the losing trades. Plus, it has a mediocre win percentage -- 42% (I have around a 90% win percentage when I trade manually). v1.201a needs some improvements.

    I think the SL issue is solvable... maybe something more stealthy, so you can set a tighter SL without actually telegraphing it to the broker. Anyway, I'll work on it and see if I can improve the results.

    I can say one thing -- it started out hot and was up over 20% in the first few hours. If only it hadn't lost it all back and more. :-)

    Default What could be wrong?

    This is a very great EA and I pray that God will continue to enrich everyone that has added to this EA.
    Am running a backtest of the V204 version on alpari uk and it keeps telling me (2009.10.12 12:39:42 2009.01.28 20:32 vForceLikeEA_V2_04A EURUSD,H1: Current spread 16exceeds maximal allowed spread 5
    )

    Alpari UK never increase their spreads more than 5. Why am I not able to perform the backtest? Can somebody tell me what could be wrong?

    Cool

    Isn't Alpari a 5-digit price feed? If so, which version are you running? You may have to multiply a number of the settings in the properties for the EA by 10. Read the thread to find which parameters -- I don't remember at the moment, as I made sure to get the code that fixes it.

    What the EA sees as 1 pip on a 4-digit price feed translates to 10 on a 5 digit feed. It's the same amount of absolute price action, but the early version of the EA only worked with 4-digit feeds.

    BTW, be careful! The EA has a very definite buying pattern of placing buy stops a configurable number of pips above sideways action, hoping that it is a flag, pennant or rectangle continuation pattern in a trend. This wins big when the sideways or contrary formation actually is a continuation of the trend, but loses spectacularly when the formation is the left shoulder of a head-and-shoulders reversal pattern.

    It does not win many sell orders. Let this EA make money in the up trends, then turn it off and do manual closes when the market turns. Otherwise, it will give back its gains and more! I am researching a way to let it detect the reversal and correct the situation much quicker, before massive losses accumulate. I will post the results here if I am successful.

    Good luck!

    Cool

    BTW, I let the robot run all day in EURUSD and GBPUDS M15, using the strategy of manually closing orders when they were well in the money, but not all the way to the robot's TP setting. I based my closes on the chart and the Awesome Oscillator momentum indicator. The results? Over 20% up!

    I'm not going to post the report, etc., because I was fooling around manually in the process, so it's not a true forward test. HOWEVER, it seems to be the best way to actually use this EA -- let it make money, then take the profits before it can lose them back. Wow. So simple, yet very effective.

    I could theoretically optimize the TP setting, but then it would not adapt to the market as well as my eyeballs. Maybe I can use AO to automate the harvesting, or dynamically adapt the TP. Anyway, 20% up while trading 2 pairs at the same time is pretty cool for a free EA.

    Funyoo is like the original Forex luck dragon!

    keep thinking in that "take profit" direction, soon you realize what a garbage all these EAs are and eventually develop your own method that really works.
    ***
    Forget about full automation on MT4. MT4 is the broker's program, they will never let you, just because they have all the EA's controls and therefore they control EA biz, not you.
    ***
    Semi Automation is your best option in MT4. Build Alerts and watch your trades, understand how market works and know what are you doing.

    MM, any information about these new manual and automatic systems would be very interesting.
