Coding is not the problem. I first coded it exactly an d I mean exactly according to the charts on that page. Back tests were whack. I then came up with my own which was better on back tests but not that good. I then posted that EA.

Salim buddy are you saying we are chasing the wing that we are on a wild goose chase.
Well I am going to put this in your court. You will be the one to tell us to stop. Here is an EAWildGooseChase_WindChaser.mq4
How long will it take for you to forward test it and determine that it is a loser or winner.
Please put a trade explorer that we can all follow.
If you find this bot a loser then we done. Or I a done

No problem Buddy. The setting is the default? On which currency pairs you want it to test?

Thanks.

Already it has taken 2 gu trades, the 3rd trade will be opened any time. The set files should be with .set extension not with .text extension. Or there might be mistakes while doing it manually.

Thanks

Hi Candy,
Uploaded 19 charts. You can have a look in my profile. Your EA is named as EA-5. All pairs are using the default settings.
**Avoided CHF pairs.

Are you live testing any EA?

Thanks.

Hi Candy,
Ps check the set files. It doesn’t close trades when in profit even after reaching 30 pips profit. But after that, the market trend changes and causes lose. Its setting is not good for a ranging market and 90% of the time the market is in range.
In the trade explorer, you will see a profit. That trades were I closed manually. But all the time I am not available in front of my laptop. So make its exit after it is in 20 pips profit. Ps. make the necessary changes in the .set file as attached.
** Please add the option: "Max No. of Trades"

Thanks.

{quote} Scalp trades has shown to be see saw. Make profit loose it. Anyway moving forward. The major important thing at moment is getting the swings . Here is what I have done. Find the highest and lowest point on chart. Then between the highest and lowest point look for swings. Now is he tricky part for scalps. How determine that price is going to bounce at support or continue trending. For Higher time frames it is easy. This is described by the link you gave in forexnoobs. Anyway I hope coders ar able to follow my thinking on drawing swings. The...

Interesting thread. Flitting from one flower to the next. Onlookers crying it's impossible. The market is driven by 75% automated trading and these guys think it's impossible. Saying it's impossible is just dumb. Counter productive. Computers crushed the world's best chess players.

You say your EAs only work for a month or so. Really? What more do you want? Work tirelessly every day trading or spend an hour every other month tuning up your robot? Maybe you should teach them to sit patiently and wait when they lose their touch. Or even have them auto-optimize periodically as some have done. The tools are there. Some self-optimize continuously. Others call another MT4 instance to run Strategy Tester and read the new parameters back through a file.

Some take a good design and watch the re-optimization needs over time and compare, finding ways to adapt as the market changes. Adaptation is likely the Holy Grail you're missing. Each of your past masterpieces 90% complete, and left unfinished.

Adaptive. Transformational. Evolutionary. Shape-shifting.

Use more adaptive tools. ATR is one. Use it to set sizes, targets, stops and more. ATR is considered the most important trading tool. Use it carefully.

I was very interested in some of your scalpers of a couple years ago. Whole lists of different entries. What a wonderful basis for adaptability. Perhaps count each method's success rate and re-adjust their usage on a continual basis. Taking their signals less often when they're not working as well and use them more when they are winning. Continue adding new entries as the market changes and let the EA use them all adaptively, saving the ever-changing, market-driven statistics to a file for safe keeping.

Your Holy Grail is coming soon. You just need to choose its colors and flavors.
