For example-Dif.Indexes is positive and going towards zero,crosses zero and becomes negative.This is an area of entry.
Russian coder made such indi(attached) but Hanover method more precise.
If we admit this logic we can trade basket. For basket 8 we summarize Indexes
AUD,GBP,NZD, EUR .,divide by4 and have medium Index.this way we get medium Index for USD and JPY, than their difference.Diff. negative -SELL zone,positive BUY zone.
Attaced pic. show Diff, indy. Thank you very much.
new MACross Hanover
Just managed to setup the Recent Strength Indi and installed HanoverEA.
All looked good until I noticed that the AUD appeared as Strongest and Weakest Currency pair in both time frames.(See Attached screenshot)
Wonder if anyone else has has this problem. Have searched this thread and the Hanover thread, but found no reference to this particular issue.
Any help appreciated.
Just a dumb question
On MT4 using the iMA indicator, I cannot use 480 as a time frame because it is not one of the Timeframe Enumeration values.
Yet, when I use the Moving Averages indicator from the chart and drag into the chart I can use 480 as a value.
Why is that? Does this 480 value really mean 480 minutes?
Hanover EA minhours
I think the minhoursbetweentrades does not work as it should.
I had two trades NZDUSD tonight, trade one closed at 04:01 (winning).
Trade two opened immediatly despite the 12hour setting and lost hours later.
Just thought I mention it.
Trumpcard - Trading Hours
I have been testing Trumpcard with various settings and have been having some success with a TP of 50 and SL of 27 (18% gain since 21st October across EURUSD and EURJPY at 2% risk). Analysing the trades on an hour by hour basis indicates that the hours of 11am to 1pm are best avoided. However, if I set Trumpcard's trading hours to 8am to 11am and 1pm to 5pm, Trumpcard will continue after the morning or evening session to take orders that were pending at the end of the session, so I get rogue trades between 11am and 1pm and after 5pm. Would it be much trouble to amend the code to provide a setting to allow pending orders to be cancelled at the end of the morning and evening sessions? Obviously those whose morning session moves seamlessly into the evening session would not want pending orders cancelled at 12pm everyday.
You have doubtless read that I have solved the problem, so thanks for drawing my attention to it. You have posting rights in my restricted threads.
I suggest you do this: continue to test the bot and gently nag me about this in the TC thread itself. I respond to nagging eventually. You have posting rights in my restricted threads now. Posting results is the best way of all to attract continued attention.
Sorry if this sounds arrogant or brushoffish; this is not my intention. As I occasionally remark, there is only one of me, but lots of everyone else.
Thanks again for your help on my personal EA. One quick, probably naive, question regarding downloading your EA's: Do I only have to download the mq4 files or are there other indicators and/or scripts needed to make the programs run?
If my EA's need something else present to run, then post 1 in the relevant thread always tells you so.
I could share some of my knowledge with the community but , unfortunately I can't post to your thread...
I did a backtest with "Dsugums AC AO EA" and i noticed that the ea does'nt actually open trades according to the discription, i think the discription says Buy if AO AC turns gree and last bar is Red and vice versa for sell. The bot actually opend buy even when last bar before current bar is green.
Hope you find time to check it out.
I'm not sure if you'll read this, but being a newbie to this forum I can't PM anyone or post in the main thread.
I'm definitely not a newbie to MQL or trading though, and I've used your EA's to build a shell for indicator testing, and I've created mods for it to include ATR trailing stoplosses, lot sizing and many other things, however, I can't post them in the corresponding threads being unvouched for.
Anyway, I'd recommend putting in some type of ATR or other volatility based TP/SL for the CBI stuff. The current default TP/SL when using CBI to trade is bad. And to avoid having to adjust TP/SL to market volatility, we can use the volatility to calculate an appropriate one. We could also use the CBI value in the tick table to say, set a SL of half the 'jump' and the same TP, etc etc. I'll proceed to make those changes to your EA and post it in the thread if you'll buddy me
Invalid handle error on every platform I try this on?
You may well think what I do is a mistake, but you have a long, long way to go here before you have the right to express this opinion in my threads. You have got away with it here because this is a say-what-you-like thread,
Actually, it isn't. It is an ask-what-you-like thread - not quite the same thingy, but I am cutting you some slack here. Annoy me in one of my restricted threads and I will send you off with a champion flaming.
Be useful or shut up.
Sorry, but the previous poster here irritated me.
Let's start again.
You will find your issue addressed in post 1 of the Hanover thread should you care to read it properly.
Loss of memory
The computer's, - not mine. TOB has been running GREAT for me lately. Well, TOB kicks things off, then I often intervene and take profits before TOB thinks it time. Soon, I will post another inspirational performance chart. Thank you Steve!
Anyway, I have a VPS with basic service. 348RAM 20GB hard drive. I run two MT4 live accounts. I do all my demo trading on my home machine, not the VPS. The VPS is with Commercial Networking Systems.
I have 13 pairs running on my main account, and 8 pairs on my second account and TOB on all of them.
Lately, MT4 is hanging and I keep getting the waiting for the first tick..... notice.
My VPS blames not having enough RAM and naturally suggest the upgrade to $65/month. Are there any other suggestions? I guess I could delete a few pairs, but I was wondering if anything in the TOB settings might reduce memory usage. Any other tricks?
I'm not sure if the benefits of have a VPS outweigh the expense and tribulations.
Tell you what MurphyMan, let's start a new thread.
I am not joking here. Does this sound like A Plan to you? You could go down in FF folklore. PM me if you want to discuss this privately first.
