after 48 hours it hasn't trade yet! i have this problem with some other EA's! What's wrong guys?
Any interesting messages in the logs? What pair are you trading?
no messages in logs!
i used in 3 pairs! USDCAD, EURUSD, and one another that i forgot!
Blessing won't work without very good and specific instructions. Settings are only good for one currency pair at one specific timeframe and often just one broker. Not surprising you get no trades without that. Or mostly losing trades.
Best to learn how to optimize and create your own settings. It's not that hard.
Blessing - eurnzd-m15-100-dollar.set.txt
Who is your broker?
In the mean time please go and learn how to run the MT4 Strategy Tester.
Question, what to do:
I have two Blessing setups both at initial stages of refinement. Both starting at $1000.
The first on CADJPY using just December data has reached $4000 in one month and is showing a beautiful smooth upward curve. Great profit for one month!
The second (GBPCAD) is showing a ragged curve going from $1000 to $200000 and ends up at $100000 over the last 3 months of data. A 50% draw down, but still a huge profit for just 3 months.
Which should I refine and use?
Blessing is an amazing tool.
I tried this version of EA for demo account for almost 2 months (actually 1 and a half due to holiday) and it was good, it earns 150% .
i'm also testing it on 1 min on demo for more 2 weeks and still making profit on demo account
so i'm going to do real account but first
can you share your sets
I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy set files either. After spending a few months running hundreds of optimizations on Blessing I'm convinced that optimizing on the broker you plan to trade on is the ONLY way to go. (Which explains why I think paying for tick data is a mistake too.)
Blessing is amazing once you get to know it better. So many people seem afraid of it. I was. It's so flexible. It will do so many things.
People that think it's Martingale or some other crazy, dangerous thing don't know what they're talking about. Blessing can do Martingale-like trading if you set it up that way. But it can also do very safe and sedate trading too, while making bigger profits than more conventional systems. All depends on how you set it up.
I've attached a version of the somewhat messy GBPCAD, m15 set file that goes from $1000 to over $1M in 60 days. But that uses hedging to try to clean up the messy equity curve a little. It probably won't look the same on your system at all unless you use FXChoice for a broker.
And here's a tamer version that goes from $1K to $32K in three months, with a much smoother equity curve. Same broker, no hedging.
Please don't trade these. Or any set files that weren't created on your broker's data. Tune them up or better yet make your own.
The Genetic optimizer makes it easy and fast. Learn how to use that and maybe I'll write up some notes for fine tuning.
No sense using set files that aren't fine tuned for YOUR broker, no matter what EA you're using.
Blue skies, Green trades.
Blessing doesn't seem to handle U.S. margin rules very well.
Has anyone looked into fixing this?
Not tested on Demo yet. Two months back test. Run on Forex.com data, don't expect it to work on others. U.S. restrictions and small leverage.
Blessing slightly modified to work with 'Open prices'. No need for tick data.
Please share results ...
Blue skies, Green trades.
ok using short period (last 2 month as you) all it's ok but extend backtest time sadly equity sl is always reached....
My last post was on the 1-minute (m1) time frame as the file name suggests. That's the least portable of all (and sometimes the most profitable.)
Try doing your own optimization from scratch with this set file:
It has all the right parameters selected to do an overall first pass optimization. About half the time that's good enough to trade. More optimization may be desirable. Here's how to use it:
* Turn on Genetic optimization.
* Set the spread to something like 30 or whatever makes sense with your broker and currency.
* Set Initial deposit to $1000 even if you plan on trading a smaller amount. Blessing optimizes better with $1000.
* Set Model to 'Open prices only' or it will take all day.
* Higher time frames are quicker so you might want to start there. One hour (H1) is good.
See what you get.
I Wil try some optimization ..
