    I think it has a magic number assigned but differently than you would usualy find as it is set up for multipul pairs, each pair listed is given a different number within the EA.

    I have been trading this live now for about 2 weeks at very safe settings (DD 3-4%) but have noticed something that I'm not sure can be coded to fix or if doing so would cause other problems.
    My T/P is 100 and at times the market moves enough that it only needs the 1 position to reach it without multipul entries. But at times the single trade only misses its mark by 10 or so pips (this morning by 2 pips!!) just to give most of it back then it enters a 2nd, 3rd.....etc trade to get back to the T/P. In doing so increasing risk (as well as probability).
    Could a rule be coded that if in only one position and you are in for example 70 pip profit that a trailing stop or a hard stop is set at say 50pips, this rule remains unless the EA decides to enter a second position through its logic then the EA can continue as it normaly was set to and the modified trailing stop/hard stop order cancelled.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to print out or check all the settings I have for the EA? There are so many and I want to compare what settings I'm using for each pair.

    Thank you

    I haven't done it but I'm sure you can work it out. After you do a back test you can create a Stratergy Test.htm report that will display a Parametreler section of all the settings that were used on the pair during the test.
    You can see an example of what I mean in post 14 of this thread, just click on the link named "Stratergy Test.htm".

    Hope this is what you are after.

    Just wonder, what do you do with all these back tests? do you sell them through Click bank?

    Metatrader7,

    I agree with you, backtests don't mean a whole lot. Forward tests carry much more weight. I'm just looking for the settings I've been using in my live tests to see if this EA is viable on more pairs than just the AUD/CAD, EUR/CHF, and the EUR/USD. I'm trying to diversify risk a little as well as add some more reward. What are thoughts on trying this?

    Thanks

    Seems like Martingale. As I recall the PipMaker left opened trades until the overall P\L was positive - this caused a simulation problem at MetaTrader which does not simulate Margin Calls. All Martingale-based EAs will eventually fail miserably.

    This EA needs a magic number. I am testing this on the same pair, but with different settings and there are clashes. Any ideas?

    I think it has a different type of MagicNumber as it trades multiple pairs. If you go into the source code and under the "int init()" heading you will see a list of trading pairs, each one has a different number and from memory something like ............800100, 800200, etc....They are called Reference Number and later in the code are called on by...."MagicNumber() == ReferenceNumber".
    So I'm sure this is how the MN is being implemented so you need to change the one that relates to the pair you are trading. (you will need 2 EA's to run on the same pair)
