{quote} I wouldn't bother with Pepperstone because they have one of the highest commissions around. It seems to me that the best broker for this type of trading is Coinexx because their commission is $2 instead of the common $7 so the net pips would be easier to attain since there's less commission to overcome. Also, they accept US residents since Cubbybgood is a US person.
-Iíll probably go with the same broker as cubby and the same pairs as well to eliminate issues and mirror the solution once satisfied with forward testing in live account.

-Happy to rewrite the mql4 to mql5 to save cubby money, allowing the testing of multiple currencies in strategy tester.

Yes, fees in these type of systems are high given multiple positions are running for long periods of time over night.

The issue with this strategy is in plain sight but try telling that to the people that are fawning. Currently all it will take to blow the account is for GBPCAD to keep moving downwards. The strategy is helpless against that event. Also, there is no so called "natural hedge" between the 3 pairs in the strategy. All three pairs are self destructing with buy trades.

You need to close your eyes and hope for the best..
The only solution to this is to spread the strategy between more pairs. This can smooth the equity curve.

This kind of talk ALWAYS happens when price moves like this and I hits DD. Yes, we are in DD. DD happens with ANY system! Get over it.

There is no telling how low the GBPCAD will go but what I do know is the lower it goes, the more likely we are to have a bounce. This is somewhat normal DD for this system as of now. I say "somewhat" because this isn't your every day price movement. This is stemming from the brexit drama.

I would give more updates today including a youtube video update but I have guests in my house till this weekend...

I will hold my positions.

Yes, that's true in my case also. I've known safety in numbers to work better. But, it's going to take a lot more than that to survive. I recognized within minutes of the posting of the thread that there was no way this would last long term. I don't want to offer advice on how to make this better especially since there are so many here that are fawning but I will agree to that, safety in numbers.

Yes but that bounce may never be enough because the price may just settle somewhere else down there and may never retrace enough. I believe this idea can be made to work long term but I can pretty much guarantee it will not work in its current form. For one thing, the grid has to be eliminated.

We are having a moment of higher DD. It will test the patience of those using my system. It will definitely scare off many traders for sure, but those that stay in, should know that DD much higher than this is not typical.

We wait...

P.S. I will not be responding to future FUD comments regarding this current DD.

What we need here is a true hedge ie sell and buy on same currency. Unfortunately the us guys arenít allowed to hedge. What a shame.

Truth to this in many cases but not all...

The AUDCAD and NZDCAD would not be helping if they were shorting right now...

The NZDCAD is in 20 pips overall profit right now
The AUDCAD is just -55 pips overall floating loss right now.

In this case, they will likely help when the GBPCAD recovers some.

The problem right now is trading a Pound cross right now with Brexit is very risky.


Cheer

I'm kinda glad this DD is happening so early in the releasing of my EA to the public. It will knock out the tire-kickers and also show me who to ignore in my thread here.

my ea work on 5 min and only trading from 9 - 23 which during new york and london season .
this ea use volume data , engulf bar, rsi and BB band .

this ea will trigger if volume have surpass certain level , engulf bar appear , rsi (OB/OS) , open or high touch upper/lower band then it will do the trade

it pretty simple anyway .

Backtest modelling quality 52%...??? One year of testing period...??? Engulfing pattern on 5 min chart...??? I'm curious about your results on the real money account...

i will test it by myself dont worry bout it .

25% DD isnt abnormal with this kind of EA,but if we pass 40% you are in troubble.For future use i would widen gridspace to some 30-40 pips on GCAD because GBP pairs are way the biggest movers against CAD,JPY and AUD,but for NZD/CAD and AUD/CAD should use 20 like settings are now....Just a tought....I think the situation are worse for you pepperstone guys started first trade some 50-70 pips before cubby,but luckily its just demos i hope.Have some faith guys.
