You may take a look at this post: Brokers Time Conversion
Feel free to add on...
Thanks for your suggestion. I was aware of the different times that the various brokers used. Considering that this info is used, a second alternative to my earlier suggestion would be to indicate the broker used in the backtest (or forward test).
Hello everyone. Well this is my first post at this forum and hopefully it will be the start of a great source of info.
Well in regard to the topic. I´m looking for an EA to be applied live however I´m currently backtesting many then demo testing. However I could undestand what are the recomended setting to be set for this EA.
Specially regarding the first 3 parameters Start, End and close hour. I´m on IBFX testing it wich according to the other topic will be IBFX : 20 OpHr 4ClHr So what I should set 20 in start 4 in End and 20 in close??? I´m really confused about it...
I beilve the other paramets mostly don´t need any chage rigth...??
And regarding the recommended time frame what you believe best 5 or 15 min.
Thanks a lot..
I am trading on FXDD and Alpari US account.
Surprisingly, only Alpari US got trade.
There are no trade at all for FXDD.
However, I can run backtest on FXDD and it shows the trading on backtest.
But for live trading, only Alpari has trades.
Hi, Looking forward to demoing the EA.
My Demo account is with FXDD. I have set StartHour to 22:00
And EndHour to 06:00.
Am i remotely close? And does the CloseHour need to be altered?
Appreciate any replies.
The set file attached to post#1 is good for FXDD.
I'm not sure that you can put a higher hour for starthour.
Try in strategy tester, you will see if it works or not.
I suggest your to do your own optimization.
I'm Glad with this web, because this is help all trader use EA,
I have optimized it backtest with data on IBfx mini & demo,
Thanks all, I hope it can help each other.
