Thread: Four Hour Buzz

    Default Optimazie function disabled?

    I tryed to use the optimization on this EA but it doesn't work. Is that function disabled or am i doing anything wrong?

    I chacked the "Profit maximum" at the Optimization tab. Then i checked the "Take Profit" Set @ 50 - Start=50 Step=5 Stop=200.
    Then i clicked ok and checked the Optimization box under the Period slide.

    And last: Start.

    But nothing happens :-(

    One more thing that doesn't work is the "reversesignals". If set to true it stil puts buy orders on the previous high and sell orders on the previous low. Isn't the "reversesignals" option there to swtich them around meaning that on the high put a sell and on the low put a buy?

    Default Something is really wrong

    Hi have a strange problem...

    Yesterday (2th of April) i was testing the EA between 2008-09-09 to 2009-07-15 (Daily Time Frame). I was quite pleased with the result since it gave around 100% in profit.
    Today (3rd of April) i was just going to verify that i was happy with my result. So i started a backtest of the same period with the exact same .set file. But my result was nothing like yesterday.

    You can all see the attached picture.

    There are some errors occuring in the Journal tab. such as:

    OrderModify error 130
    OrderSend error 130


    Why is this?

    I have attached the .set file as well and if someone would be kind to test it as well i would appriciate it.

    Regards / JoLi

    Could be due to broker spread, especially on weekend as the spread will max out towards the end of the week, this will cause trades to be triggered and order send errors that would not normally occour during the week.
    You should always try and run your tests around the time you would normally have the EA running, because unless your broker has fixed spreads you will always get varying results at diferent times of the day.
    I have been doing some further testing with this EA and found on the daily chart if you use a tight SL loss and a big TP, for instance 5 pip SL and 350 TP you will get a long run of small loosing trades and then every so often catch a big run and easily hits TP, I'm still testing and trying to find the best settings, but it's very interesting.

    Breakeven 5
    Pip offset 11
    TP 450
    Trailing start 250

    It seems as you are right. I now see that i have a spread of 26 at G/U. I have never ever even considered that the spread isn't the same during weekends. I will most deffently be more observant about it in the future. Thank you so much for this help. I was going nuts over here about it.

    Perheps i good idea. But it can also be quite frustrating to wait for the right move to happen and during that time just collect loss and loss and losses even if it's small ones.

    Funyoo -

    Testing blackdog's daily method and one item jumped out at me due to one of my brokers: Is there a way to add a variable that ignores short Sunday sessions for the purposes of calculating the breakout?

    Best,

    Was watching this one trade during today's session at GO Markets, and it entered nicely on the downside breakout in the EURUSD; however, using "breakevengain" = 5 and "breakeven" = 5 presets from blackdog on the D1 chart, the EA v1.01 should have moved the S/L to breakeven and it did not, resulting in a -5 pips S/L on the retracement. I did not see any notation in the log file that said the EA tried to move the S/L and couldn't. Is this feature properly enabled? Has anyone else noticed this?
