...Would like to see more runners like the first two, but overall not bad. (Changed SL to 20, but I believe the first four trades would not have been stopped out even with the new 20 stop, so current pipcount is accurate despite the change.)
Even so the ageold problem may still exist, that being that a few losses will wipe out all the winners and thus no overall progress.
Here's something everyone shouldn't do with this EA if you're using the template 2: don't use the money management: it's doesn't seem to work right. That's why I've implemented my own MM system that doesn't seem to effect the behavior of the EA in the template 2. As long as your brokers time zones are set and you are using the defaults, you should be just fine.
I'm going to take a much more bold approach to my forward testing...
newtrader100: So far from the looks of it, 20 pip stop may not be the best idea.
Anyone else have recent results with the 100 pip stop?
(I'm using template 3 - 5K deposit size for now - with 20 pip stop.)
No, but the draw down is slightly higher, and I'm not using MM. I've put MaxOrders to 15 this time to see if I can catch more scalps than normal, and I have caught a few extra trades here and there. I'll let you all know this week. Plus, I'm changing the trading session to 24 hrs, well, 23 hrs and 58 minutes )startHour=0,Startminue=1,Endhour=23,endminute=59; same for MonStartHour=0,MonStartMin=1,and FirEndHour=23,FirEndMin=23, or whatever it is) because I've seen so many potential scalp trades in the other trading session time frames, I'm willing to risk going there and exploring the possibilities, so I'll let you know if it's a good idea or not. I'm keeping the stop loss at 100 because I've seen this thing long enough to know that a trade usually bounces back either from a support or resistance, even if it breaks it one way or the other. Good luck yall!
