    well here is my backtest from this system. It is a good system in backtest so far, but my biggest problem is that fact that you require a large starting capital to stop your account from blowing up.

    In my tests, a min of $10000 is required trading with 0.01 lots, so not really sure if it would be good for live trading, i used $50000 for my backtest!

    Would like to know what others think about this software! The HTML file is to large to post!

    This system must have a martingale in it, judging by the potholed incline. Looks dangerous.

    Yeah i think you are right, martingale for sure. Certainly no good for live it would look like considering you need a large amount of money to trade with. But thought it was worth posting my test. Might put it up on my demo for a while to see what happens.

    It is martingale but uses a really small lots - so it also makes little money. Note that it took 390 trades to make ~300$. And that's on 50000$ account!

    Plus the fact that martingale always ends up destroying your account.

    Couldn't agree more. I don't know why people want martingale options in EAs... unless the EA is THAT GOOD that it rarely ever loses ( haven't found one yet ... and even if I did I wouldn't be able to sleep at night ).

    Anyway, forex peace army mentions that it DOES use a martingale and there's anecdotal evidence that yes, it has blown up huge accounts before.
    Martingales turn trading bots into gambling bots.
