and the I gave the settings in the first post
i had the same problem. in my case, there was a wrong lotsize in the standard settings (80% of 0.1 lots = 0.08 and 20% of 0.1 = 0.02 lots).
Because my broker only accepts lotsizes 0.1 or higer, the orders that this ea
does where canceld by my broker.
1) When i activate the PriceActionFilter, there were no Trades,too.
When i activate it, the EA operates normaly. Why?
2) in the sourcecode i found some code of an former option to choose
to trade on fridays/sundays or not and the exact hour.
i deleted the /* */ to hopefully re-activate this code, but it doesn't
change anything in my results. did you complete this code
or is anything wrong with it???
Thanks a lot for answering!!! This EA is one of my favourites!!!
Great work from you!!!!
Funyoo - awesome work on this EA - works great.
I have a question about the trailing stop/locking orders in at breakeven.
When I run it on EUR/USD, it manages the orders very well, utilizing the trailing stop function and locking in others at breakeven - takes profit when it should.
But when I went to run it on EUR/JPY, many times the trades would be in profit for a very long time, and then get stopped out. It was like I was trading a totally different EA.
I tried messing around with the ATRTS functions but with little success (though I definitely did make progress).
Could you go into a more detail about the 3 ATRTS setings?
Also there's something else I might be missing here in regards to the order management. Again in basic testing on other pairs it does very well until I see it holding on for dear life on a group of winning positions, and then getting stopped out after carrying enormous positive equity. Maybe you could explain a little better.

The ATRTS is a simple trailing stop based on the average true range indicator. The period is 14, the timeframe is M1, and the value is multiplied by 7. The trailing stop is enabled as soon as the difference between the stop loss and the price is higher than the ATR*7.
