    I am wondering if we should better reverse the signals. A crossing above +0.9 means a strong uptrend. A crossing under -0.9 a strong downtrend. And the trend is still your friend .
    This is the third signal I've been watching and the basket seems to move -20% every time before ever turning around. I do not use a stoploss and have reached the TP with the previous two signals.
    This one is hanging at -16% for the moment, so I guess if we reverse the signals we can get +10% easy
    It just seems that the basket moves much more easier to a drawback of over 10% immediately after hitting the signal than moving into positive ..

    well, we're not there yet with this ea
    drawdown around -45% now
    lucky it's only a small live account
    it looks like the pairs in the basket are not well balanced. total pips (minus) for the pairs with usd on the right side: 270. total pips (plus) for pairs with usd on the left: 44

    I have a request for Funyoo. I'm using this program with the origional 6 pairs basket with mm at 1% risk, take profit at 0.8% gain and exit at 5.0% loss and with closeonopposite=true, with some success. I did a backtest on eurusd by deleting the other pairs and found the risk reward ratio of 5 to 1 was profitable. In live trading I noticed that sometimes a few of the pairs go wildly against the position causing a net open loss. So I tried using a 50 pip SL to eliminate those bad boys in the basket. It didn't work because after the pair hit SL and closed, it immediately opened a new position. My request to Funyoo is to add a feature where if a pair goes against the position by x pips (default=50), then it will put on one order of double the size in the opposite direction. The net result is neutralizing the origional position and adding a new position in the opposite direction. For example I had a recent basket all sell, but the usdjpy went up 240 pips, the reverse of that one position would have put the basket in profit quickly. I would keep the basket closing and everything else the same. Thank you Funyoo for all your kind work.

    Hi virtik,

    Right stoploss corrected.

    Hi 4x4me,

    Stoploss : stoploss for one order (individual).
    Losspercent : stoploss for all order (global).

I am hoping overall U$ will gain strength Sunday's open at least, so that i can get out of current trading. But, if it doesn't, I have no choice but wait until I can get out or hit SL, I guess..

    On this basket trading, i have an EA (not the EA that we are using here) that I entered manually (I mean, manually set your direction for each pairs) and I did it that way by this indicator. i target 2% per trade cycle and total netting over 20+% today. I am not looking to make 20% daily, but if market give me a chance, it sure is nice. Because, I know for some days, it will be much less and sometime, we'll be sitting on drawdown, I am sure.

    Market is closed, so some of you may not be able to see what multi-dash looks like, so I upload indicator image.
    Multidash option added.

    Because I don't know yet how stop the trade...
    For your help (maybe ) I attached an EA by Metacoder that has this option.
    Thx.
    Hi madscalp,

    Equitytrail option added.

    Hi Gordo,

    Extrahedge option added and stoploss modified to avoid new entry on a same bar after when a trade is close on sl.

    Thanks Funyoo! It was all downhill last week for this EA (at least on my account), so Im looking forward to testing out some of the new features, especially the multidash and extrahedge.
