LOL....and how are we supposed to tell if you've overlooked anything, when we cannot look at anything?
entire trade explorer is in front of you, each trade EA took, lot size, profit, loss, everything what else can one need to make a judgement?
My EA make 501 pips a day.
its opening and closing the trades right in front of you, its FORWARD testing, not backtesting. not results of last year or something.
so whatever the result is, nobody can predict, and if someone can, he is going to be a Trillionaire.! with a capital T.
Hey, my car won't start; can you tell me what is the problem? Of course I can't offer any clues on the make or model of the car, I won't tell you anything about the engine capacity either. Just rake your brains, spend a lot of time on this and feel honored that I am letting you help me
many people go bankrupt,, because.,,the victory at the beginning in bulk ,,(either demo or real )
Little Miss Muppet: I baked a new cake today, it's delicious, but I want to know if it's a fluke or am I missing something?
Guy in the shop: Oh ok, let me have a taste and I'll try and help you.
Little Miss Muppet: Oh no, you can't taste it
Guy in the shop: Oh.....well......let me see the recipe then.
Little Miss Muppet: Oh no, you can't see the recipe.
Guy in the shop: Really?......Well at least tell me what the ingredients are.
Little Miss Muppet: No way!
Guy in the shop: Well how the hell can I help you find out if it's a fluke or if you're missing something???
Little Miss Muppet: Because I'm showing you the cake.....you know, the results.....duh!
Guy in the shop: Uh huh....I'm going to the pub!
why is everyone so stressed about the EA i use? if i dont tell you the name of the EA, nobody will tell me anything, correct?
2 - will it help if i post my username/investor password here?
what difference will it make from trade explorer? you will get the same data in both places, more data in trade explorer.
I also tried tons of EAs on demo accounts. To be frank Some EAs were more than 90% profitable on Demo. But when I go with real money then the different thing. Why don't you start a small live account to test this EA ? Hopefully you will get the answers. Don't trade all pairs using EA. Stick to 04 - 05 pairs.
Your thread in a Nut Shell ...
Good times ..
I can open so small positions (and so many of them) that it will give me 10.000 pips a day (or even more) and with same money I can do only 20 pips but the profit in cash will be the same, that's why what counts more for me is daily profit in %, not pips.
Forward test link is at signature. If you run your ea for a year and it is still profitable then probably you have found 'your' version of trading holy grail.
Here is the backtest
The point is that it is impossible for anyone to give you any opinion that is worth anything.
Impossible because no one knows the logic of the EA. Most likely not even you.
Also it is impossible, or extremely time consuming to try to reverse engineering a logic from a list of open trades
ufff, the option are infinite.
To me looks like a simple basket of some sort, that is just lucky in these few days with the parameters
Any Basket style system are in general just spreads eater system. And as soon the market behave different
then the present setting would be worthless.
No one can tell you more then generic thing like I am mentioning. If you figure the logic of your present setting
and "you" think they are good, go for it.
Sorry for the noob question, but what is a EA?
An EA can just advise traders which trades to make.
Or can be programmed to automatically execute the trades.
I am plodding along on a demo account, in 2 weeks have turned 10 grand into 18 grand and I know that is probably not much going by some of the regulars here but I find it fairly easy to make money.
Like everyone says though, come back when your using real money. I will do it, just not yet though, need to prove I can make play money first lol.
