    Shaya I have spent ALOT of time working with this EA... A few things I have learned....First if you don't have enough margin it will not pllce an order....

    if(Bars < 100 || IsTradeAllowed() == false)
    return(0);
    sob = (kol_buy() < 1 || buy_lev_min - sh*Point > Ask) &&
    AccountFreeMargin() > AccountBalance()*0.5;

    sos = (kol_sell() < 1 || sell_lev_max + sh*Point < Bid) &&
    AccountFreeMargin() > AccountBalance()*0.5;


    Re. trying to make it safer using any number of ways....ie, less than double lot exponents, variable pip step...use of stop loss...all really don't seem to work well...the best way I have found is to make the sh large enough that too many trades aren't made, ....that the tp gets the best bang for its buck....determine using testing.... and third have a large balance in your account!!
    Good Luck

    Shaya if you do your homework your chance of a crash is lower......ie if you know the currency has on its worst day moved 500 pips before a retrace....and that you (your balance) can withstand a 5 order situation (.1, .2, .4, .8, 1.6L) then set sh to 100 or higher and backtest for the optimum tp. If you get in too deep shut the adviser off and trade by hand....As I said before WE need to be able to trade successfully and only use the ea for doing the actual trades. EA's don't make a dime...traders do.
