    I am running:

    RSIMA scalper 6 pairs 1 month
    Scalping & Breakout EU 2 months
    TereshSuperMegaWinner Like EU 2 weeks
    Patern MACD EU still optimising about to add
    MSM Scalper EU & GU 2 weeks
    MAWPR EU & GU still optimising about to add

    they are all running at very small risk.

    These havent been running very long. Reason is that I totally ditched everything i was running previously when i started doing optimisations with dukascopy data.

    They are sort of forward tests with real money at low risk.
    I am running them all on the same account. hoping they will average out to be profitable.

    Sounds like a good strategy.

    Hey arbus - could you publish your Pattern Macd and MA WPR optimisations when they're done? - I'm struggling to get the 99% tick data (via Birt) up and running!

    ok, i will post the set files in the ea sections.

    This might help make optimising a bit easier? or not?

    read this about 10 times until it is a bit clearer.(it took me a while to understand)
    Tick data - 99% modeling quality with Metatrader 4 | Birt's EA review

    basicly what you need to do is

    1 open an account with dukascopy.
    2 open jforex platform.
    3 on the tester part, select the period and symbol and click on 'get tick data' (dont go overboard on the size to start with. it takes a long time to downlad.)
    4 then click 'save tick data' (the data is saved on your computer)

    on the above link( birts page) there is a download with some scripts.
    you need the jforextofxt script and the birt's patch scripts. install/ compile these scripts on mt4

    5 put the dukascopy file you just saved into your folder C:\Program Files\Go Trader MT4\experts\files
    6 rename the file to the symbol, such as EURUSD
    7 open a chart with mt4 with the same symbol eg EURUSD
    8 put the chart on the time frame you want to convert eg 5min
    9 execute the jforextofxt script.
    10 in the properties click CreateHst to TRUE (only do this the first time you run a symbol)
    11 when finished open your files folder again and there will be some hst files for each timeframe. copy these files to C:\Program Files\Go Trader MT4\history\GoMarkets-Demo , or where ever your hst files are located. replace the existing files.
    12 go back to your files folder and copy the fxt file you created eg EURUSD5_0.fxt paste this file into C:\Program Files\Go Trader MT4\tester\history
    13 restart mt4
    14 **important, i always forget this step.. run the birt's patch script.
    15 do an optimisation on eurusd5min and it should be 99%

    once you have done it successfully once it gets a bit easier. make sure you do it on a demo, not your main trading account (reinstall a new copy of mt4 in a different location)

    the time settings for dukascopy data is gmt =0. so always optimise with gmt0, then set your time offsets when you put it onto a demo or real account.

    Default Risk Strategies

    May i also can inquire about peoples risk strategies?

    Especially if you are trading with large sums of $.

    I feel it is too risky to trade a large amount of $ in one account, so i split it into smaller accounts.
    Do you trade 1 ea per account or multiple ea's?
    What risk setting do you use? Do you take more risks on a smaller account then a large account?
    Do you trade the same ea's on different accounts with different risks?

    What gain do you hope to achieve?

    thanks in advance..
