Thread: ForexNuke back test.

  1. #1

    Default ForexNuke back test.

    Here is the backtest for the EA I just finished writing ... ForexNuke. I'm pretty excited about it, because after numerous failures I finally have an EA that is showing promise! I used pretty conservative settings for this backtest because it was starting with a $500 deposit.

    Good stuff ppentz,
    2300 out of 500 in 6mths on 1 pair - thats nice.
    Time to forward test ?
    Or is it worth $500 on live account ?

    Can you tame those increases in the volumes any more. They look to be the danger area.

    Keep the updates comming.

    cheers bt2

    Nope, this is not martingale. A martingale system, by definition, doubles the lot size after a losing trade to make up for previous losses. The strategy there is to overcome the losses in one trade. My EA uses an equity recovery system but it's not martingale. Rather than try to overcome losses in one trade, it's happy overcoming losses in several trades, but in the long term it will overcome them. It does that by increasing the lot size after a loss (one lotstep per order) and decreasing it after a win. That way, in the long term, wins will always have a larger lot size than losses, giving them a better chance of overcoming them. It can take several days to overcome a series of losing trades, but it will.

    Also, it uses the parabolic SAR indicator, which by it's nature limits losses, but leaves gains unlimited. That's why you might see one order overcome several losses, which is probably why there is martingale confusion, but it's because there was a nice big gain!

    Absolutely they can be limited. The EA opens trades in pairs, and if both trades lose, the lot size is adjusted twice. It would be easy to limit the changes to once per pair, that would cut the lot sizes in half. Of course the returns aren't going to be as good that way.
