I'm assuming this means that when it shows 0500 and 0800, that for IBFX, which is at GMT, the open and close would be 0300 and 0600?

    Perhaps if you (or other posters) could indicate the time zone of their brokers, thus their tests, when posting set data, it would be clear what the time settings were used.

    Thanks.

    Passion Trader,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I was aware of the different times that the various brokers used. Considering that this info is used, a second alternative to my earlier suggestion would be to indicate the broker used in the backtest (or forward test).

    Hi egejo and welcome,

    You have to withdraw 2 hours to the set files time settings.

    You can also do your own optimization, what I advise.

    Hi Funyoo,

    I am trading on FXDD and Alpari US account.
    Surprisingly, only Alpari US got trade.
    There are no trade at all for FXDD.

    However, I can run backtest on FXDD and it shows the trading on backtest.

    But for live trading, only Alpari has trades.

    Pls advise.

    Thnks

    Hi RICCIA,

    As these brokers have different tick data, the break lines can be touched on one broker and not on the other one. You should be more patient for FXDD.

    My Demo account is with FXDD. I have set StartHour to 22:00
    And EndHour to 06:00.
    Am i remotely close? And does the CloseHour need to be altered?

    Appreciate any replies.

    Hi trailingedge and welcome,

    The set file attached to post#1 is good for FXDD.

    I'm not sure that you can put a higher hour for starthour.

    Try in strategy tester, you will see if it works or not.

    I suggest your to do your own optimization.

    Robert123, Goodmorning.
    I have yet to have any trades with this EA. I would appreciate a copy of your set file as your back results look promising also. Thankyou.
