When run ForceLoadHistricalData the new data gets saved in an incremented new file. I doesn't replace previous data file.
EURUSD60_0.fxt is the data tester uses,
but EURUSD60_2.fxt is the most recent ForceLoadHistoricalData data.
Only replace EA with a new one.
Still need to get tick data.
Ran strategy tester with optimizer on TP & SL.
Configured with optimized TP & SL for frama period 13:
Great job. Thank you for your EA.
The new user interface makes it much, much easier and faster to use in Strategy Tester.
It runs without a hitch in Strategy tester and matches buys & sells on a regular chart.
To improve winning profit percent, can the EA be programmed to incrementally add to winning trades?
For example add-on BUY:
When EA takes a BUY and price moves x-points up, add one additional BUY, then price moves x-points up, add one additional BUY, etc.
User sets the value for x-points and lot size for incremental BUYS.
All BUYS have the same TP and SL as the original BUY.
For example add-on SELL:
When EA takes a SELL and price moves x-points down, add one additional SELL, then price moves x-points down, add one additional SELL, etc.
User sets the value for x-points and lot size for incremental SELLS.
All SELLS have the same TP and SL as the original SELL.
Thanks again for your creativity and generous work.
All the best,
You have done some fantastic work on this EA.
The new user interface is much easier to understand and use than editing XML files.
However, if someone will be using for example 15 symbols in one EA and more strategies - editing XML will be necessity.
have you considered the EA choosing a lot size based on user defined risk %?
for example, the user wants to risk 1% per trade. the ea would calculate this based on stop loss and account equity.
Thanks for your comments.
A good idea, something to consider for future implementation.
Have to consider Joe's time and effort, which he has generously shared.
At this point I'd like to take it step-by-step and make sure the EA is working.
Please make a note and check back.
It isn't so easy. I need robust solution for both MT4 and MT5 terminals.
Joe has done a terrific job with this EA. All credit goes to him.
Only tested on H1. I guess H4 should be next
I ran a couple different pairs through strategy tester optimizer.
Round 1 was optimize max profit on frama period and the two multipliers. The frama range to optimize over was quite large.
Round 2, using best values from round 1, optimize max profit on TP & SL.
My data isn't the best and only tested/optimized on 5 months of data.
As you know this process takes a considerable amount of time.
Also, after getting a round 1 optimal value for frama range I reran optimizer using micro steps around the first optimum value to try and zero in on the best value. Optimizer didn't find any improvement.
An interesting finding is the larger TP & SL values.
They also arrived at local peak values, getting worse profit when changed higher or lower.
All this is probably an artifact of my crappy data.
Another finding is using TYPICAL Price which eliminates many of the small, quick reversals.
Hey, give it a try and let me know your results, or if you find the holy grail.
@ northwind: Do you have any settings for the XAUUSD pair on M15, M30 or H1? Thank you very much
