    Overtrade works good in certain periods. I have tested the ea last week and I think, he needed some modification more. I have the best results with following suggestion:

    - Do not trade on sunday
    - From monday to thursday trade between 8.00 to 17.00 GTM
    - On friday trade between 8.00 and 14.00 GTM

    Maybe OnTheRoad or Funyoo can create this comfort-timefilter. That wood be very nice. Next week I take a test on 5m. But I am unsure for the settings. I hope this was a meaningful contribution that brings us many nice pips.

    My settings on timefilter-version:

    Trade on sunday-false
    Mon-Thu-8.00-17.00 true
    Fry-8.00-14.00 true

    Thanks

    Using the time filter and presets it almost blew the account during backtesting. No matter how I tweak the time, and trying out different backtest periods, it almost always ends bad. My broker time is GMT+2. Do I need to add 2? Should I use patona's 8-17 or Funyoo's preset 2-16 filter? Do you guys have the same result? what settings do I need to change?

    Hi funyoo,

    Can you add a moneymanagement user input inside this EA?

    Use MM= true

    The EA would based on the following table to increase the lotsize.

    For AC size of $500, start with 0.01 lotsize
    For AC size of $1000, start with 0.02 lotsize
    For AC size of $1500, start with 0.03 lotsize

    So basically, when the account balance has increased to $500 in value, the EA would increase the lotsize by 0.01.

    However, if the account balance has dropped , the EA should adjust the correct lotsize accordingly.

    For eg, now the ac balance is $1001, the EA should place 0.02 lotsize, however when the account has dropped to $950, the EA should place 0.01 lotsize instead.

    Can help on this area?
