------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good day to you, earnest traders, thank you for dropping by this thread!

This thread is about developing the rAlgo Pivot Trading Expert Advisor (rPT-EA) on MT4, I started coding the rPT-EA back in April 2018, based on the pivot trading strategy shared by Davit on Forex Factory. However since then Davit's methodology has evolved, so has rPT-EA in our own direction, even though the two methodologies have their roots centering on Weekly Fibonacci Pivots, however the entries and exit strategies are now different.

As you know there are both advantages and disadvantages of Manual vs. Automated trading systems, so I am not going to elaborate further. Davit's system is a manual one. You can find Davit's thread at https://www.forexfactory.com/showthread.php?t=588764 -- If you don't know anything about Pivot Trading, please read Davit's thread and learn the basics from there.

As mentioned, rPT-EA was developed in April 2018, the first release was v0.5, the latest version is v0.8.4 (Mar 2019), from the version number you can see that from the version number, rPT-EA is still in beta stage, as I am still testing and fine-tuning the algorithms. Even though it's still in beta development, the trading results reported by many of our FF members in this thread shows that the EA is already generating profits, this is very encouraging to us all, still you should trade at your own risk and discretion.

To get organized, I have teamed up with WindChaser to grow this project together, I will focus on EA development while WindChaser will help manage this thread, look after administrative tasks (feedback/feature requests/bug reporting etc), general support and liaison matters. Thank you WindChaser for your contribution!
(Tidbit: WindChaser and I are both IT Professionals, he is based in Singapore while I am based in Jakarta)

I invite you to not just read through the thread, but actively contribute your comments/ideas/bugs/results so we can improve the rPT-EA.

WARNING! Read this carefully:
1. I am the creator of rPT-EA, the EA is FREE but it's NOT open-source.
2. I added EA protection to prevent unethical traders from selling the rPT-EA, so I collecting account information via MT4 WebRequests. If I found someone selling my EA or doing something that causes damage to me or other people, I will shut down the EA for that account.
3. If you are not comfortable with Point #2, you should stop using rPT-EA immediately.

rPT-EA Releases (and instructions on how to setup the rPT-EA included in the links below):
20180607: v0.51 released.
20180711: v0.6 released with improvements.
20180718: v0.7 released.
20190121: v0.8.1 released.
20190305: We launched v0.8.4! Please join our Telegram group to start.

FAQ:
1. Why did you start this thread?
To give back, and the good FF community can come together to build an awesome EA.

2. What are the best pairs to trade, best TimeFrame and the best set files?
For now you can forward test the rPT-EA on major pairs (on demo or CENT accounts), so far the best TF is H1, use the default settings for now.

3. Can I backtest the EA?
Yes you can!

4. Backtesting is pointless and useless, and I suspect the results you shared are fake.
We do not want to debate on whether backtesting is useful or useless, you can decide. And sure, we understand you should not trust everything you read online, so the advice is for you to download the EA and put it on a DEMO account to forward test it. You be the judge.

5. Why the EA does not seem to work with my US brokerage account which requires FIFO trading?
The rPT-EA is not compliant with US FIFO trading, so we cannot guarantee if it works/not work, you will have to figure it out. We have other pressing priorities and do not have plans to achieve FIFO compliance in the near term.

6. How can I get more support or contribute to this project?
a. You can continue to post comments/idea/bugs/results here in this thread
b. You can join the Telegram group to chat with other like-minded traders who are also testing the rPT-EA
c. You can email support@ralgo-ea.com to reach both WindChaser and I

Green pips to all,
akangaziz & WindChaser

NZDCHF at R61. I know it's too risky here. but let see the final result later. I don't know if I need additional entry filter or not if a big bull candle is come-up exactly before the SELL signal appears.

the original idea of creating this EA is to build EA that can be running at any broker and holding the position in less then 1 day.

Nice system. FYI putting files into sinsin executable file may put users off from downloading. Most people are suspicious of executables. It's not difficult to install manually. You'll probably get more downloads... Just my two cents.

If you will keep that TE up and running open will be great.only like this the potential or no potential (some bad orders) on the way can be seen.and if ... IF that EA will blow up the account you can always start new TE named as next new try with new improvements added in the code.
having all old TE's up visible even all wiped accounts or bad DD (if they will be) can show clear EA performance with every new improvement step.and so you and of course others can see clear how EA gain potential with every new addition from first TE test to the last one updated.
cheers!

EURAUD earn 100 pips this morning.
and continue to open another trades since the signal is still valid. do I need to limit the trades to only 1 signal per pivot line? currently, EA (expert advisor) will open trades in the same pivot if all required condition is met. ok, let see..
