    Guys,

    I am not sure whether backtest are the right thing to do with thisb Ea. I personally do not give a dime on backtests...they depend too much on good data and son forth. And since this EA is very new, why do we not agree on testing it forward on demo?

    Lets say, trader 1 agrees to test whatever pairs we come up with version 101 on M30, H1 and H4...leaving setting at default....posting results after 2 weeks...
    Trader 2 agrees to test the same pairs with version 102, same TFs and default settings...posting results after 2 weeks....
    Same with version 103 and 104.....

    Starting account is always 3000 and lotsize 0,1

    This way we get results that are to some extend comparable....plus we do not get confused with the setting stuff.....I have seen many threads getting useless because of so many confusing ideas and settings.

    You may also share what broker you are doing it with. Then, after we have the first results, we can discuss, whether we want to change any settings and in which way and start it again the same way...

    We all know, that there are thousands of possible settings....but the main important thing is to be profitable for a long time and over and over again. So it is not about having a setting that produces GREAT results but just if whatever.....we need constant and reliable results.

    What do you think about this idea?

    Default Trying to Use bb macd only

    hi.. so i was trying just the bbmacd alone. without the gartley or momo or anything else. and got some weird results. i didn this mostly because i cant seem to get it to trade at all while visual backtesting with gartley on.. so i thought id just use bb macd on low risk with entry and exit and close on opposite and see what happens. it never worked right. i visual backtested it for hours on eur/usd 1, 5, 30 min and 1 hour. using dates from 5-4. i got some really weird entries and exits. so maybe im doing something wrong. i know it really is supposed to be a gartley thing but there are so many variables and bb macd is so good that i though i'd try it as a near stand alone.

    here are my final settings.
    gartley false
    tradeat false

    momo false all

    bbmacd entry true
    bbmacd exit false
    high false
    medium false
    low risk true
    tf 30

    everything else false and default except
    stop loss 20
    trailing stop 15
    max trades 1

    as you can see from the picture it didnt do what i thought the settings would do. and thats to entered a trade when the first diamond appears in the direction of the trend as per the low risk setting. also not shown is the many tests that showed it didnt exit on opposite with or with out macdbb exit true or false. so i ended up using a trailing stop to keep some profits. other wise it just opened a trade and never closed. weird.

    And just to report.... EA102 worked fine on my MBTrading MT4 platform, but 103 and 104 are not taking trades..... (All EAs modified with to use the OrderReliable code, as required by the MBT ECN access.....)

    MBT MT4 platform is horrible. It crashes daily on my VPS. I have a feeling that once MBTrading gets their MT4 platform up in running that that will be the peak of their business. Many will fund accounts and become extremely disappointed and run away. You also have to understand how incredibly difficult it is to operate MT4 platforms being an ECN.

    Andy, keep in mind that M15 isn't the best TF to test this algorithm on. 30M and higher are going to give you the best results. However, M15 will likely give you more signals than M30 and higher.

    hey russ-trader..the macdbb DOES NOT REDRAW..everybody needs to get that through there heads. What you are seeing is the indicator drawing in live time as the price changes..once the current candle finishes the value of the macdbb dot is fixed and DOES NOT CHANGE AGAIN..so when it looks good in backtest it also looks good in live testing..The problem is comming from your understanding of how indicators look intracandle..If you guys cant understand this then Lawn bowls might be easier for you
