Ok, my bad...
I have a question regarding programming in general that applies to this PowerFX EA. I ran it on my FXDD account (using 0.01 lot sizes) and had no problems, however when I tried it on my FXPro account (using 0.1 lot sizes) I got ordersend 130 errors. I looked at the code and noticed that when it places the initial order it includes the stoploss and takeprofit in the ordersend function. I've noticed that FXPro seems to put restrictions on orders placed with stop losses and takeprofits too close to the buy price (I am assuming that is what is causing this error) so I zero'd out the sl and tp just too prove it out and it no longer received the errors. SO I guess my question to you is, in general, when programming an EA (which I am trying to teach myself how to do) is it better to issue the OrderSend function with TP and SL set to zero and then issue a ModifyOrder afterwards with the SL and TP? Would doing it this way make the EA more compatible with most brokers? If that is the case do you have a snipet of code I could throw into the EA myself? Thank you for your time.
I find this ea works well on daily time frames on most currencies.
However really does well eur/usd from 6.00pm gmt till 8.00 am gmt
but i have to manually put the ea on at these times.
I asked in earlier post for this to be modded for 0.01 lot and got that thanks!
Just need this ea to have the ability to start and stop at specific times auto and i feel this ea is a real winner.
i have uploaded all the info i have on this ea, hopefully someone can mod it for the start/stop time option
just a quick note.
in my upload above ther are a couple of versions..its the 'powerfx v2 ea'
Thanks for sharing this EA! :-)
I have a few questions for you:
Are you using the default settings for Powerfx v2? Or, did you change some of the settings? I didn't know this EA multiplies by 2...
Can you recommend the best pairs so far?
How large has the DD been?
What's the most trades you've seen this EA opened up on 1 pair at a time?
Also, you may want to use this tool if you are testing multiple pairs. Very handy! :-)

using default settings with eur/usd gbp/usd usd/cad on daily time frame and i have seen all these pairs close in profit over several weeks. i suppose biggest dd 10-15% on gbp/usd. but have some testing results which i will post end of the week.But as i have mentined before i would like to have the facility to start/stop this ea in settings so i can streamline it on pairs at certain times for max profits. I have had a private message of member of this thread saying he is getting very good results on 30min TF.The most trades it opens at anyone time is 5 (1.6 lot). i am new to the forex and hope this ea can benefit others. most profitable pair gbp/usd and then eur/usd
Do you manually close any of the trades out on friday? Or, do you leave them running over the weekend - until trading begins again on Sunday?
Also, do you or the member have any statements that could be shared for this EA?
May I ask why you chose the daily tf?
Once again, thanks for sharing! :-)
Funyoo or someone on this thread, could you please add a start and stop time to this EA PowerFX_v2? TIA!
