    Default Thanks Bill

    BillR,

    Thanks for the reply. What happened was I had 8 trades in a series and all closed but the 8th because it had no take profit. When I checked out the journal it had a "off quotes" error when it was doing the modifyOrder command. I like to use this EA without the martingale feature. I like to predict a direction and then dollar cost average with more lots if it starts out going the other way.

    Thanks for your help.

    Humperdink....I would have only expected the "Off Quotes" to be a problem with your OrderClose...not the modify command....TP problem should have an error 130 or maybe 145...or 3....You should/could also try increasing the slip if you continue to have this error...What was "Max Orders" set for?

    Arrow RE: Off Quotes error

    BillR,

    First of all, thanks for your help. Here is the error from the log:
    modification of order #17018705 sell 2.12 USDJPY at 98.42 sl: 0.00 tp: 0.00 -> sl: 0.00 tp: 98.03 failed [Off quotes]
    As you can see it was the USDJPY. Slip was set at 3. So far it has only happened this once and thankfully I was awake. I am working on a new solution and think I am close...will post when confirmed in case anyone else has this problem b/c it could have been disastrous. Oh yeah, you will laugh but I keep the max trades at 99 b/c that's just how I roll .

    Thanks

    Wink Ilan 1.4 -1.4.

    Hy this is my first post.
    I'm Niky from Italy. I opened an account with xfcm in march and i started Ilan 1.4 with eur/chf. Is a very good ea. I am trying ilan 1.5 in a demo account with alpari. it seems to work like Ilan 1.4 but with some differences that i do not find.
    I attack ilan 1.5 if someone wants to see it and find the differences with ila 1.4.
    bye

    I can not see anything special with 1.5, in my backtests it performs exactly the same as 1.4, the only difference is 1.5 does not have a magic number!

    Ilan and other martingale expert advisors should be tested on demo or real acconts. Strategy tester is not good for martingale. Thats my experience.

    Hello.
    My experience says the same. I always have very big difference between at least demo account and versus backtesting.
    All my ilan modifications has this. That on tester i get different data at all.

    There is Ilan 1.6 already.
    They just added RSI as open indicator.

    Oh what do you know Ilan 1.7--they added a prayer indicator for the Martingale Hail Mary.

    In all seriousness, it is pointless to backtest a Martingale based system.
