A theory :
I have different EA (Margin Trader) running in separate charts for same pairs as the Renko pairs.
JFHullMA (Mode A) on Renko charts looks like it was operating from the M1 feed and ignored the Renko M3.
All the BUY trades were with the JFHullMA magic number.
Here is the interesting thing... the first JFHullMA signal seems to have triggered the Margin Trader EA.
Margin Trader EA seems to have taken over, trading in one direction, and kept using JFHullMA to open more trades as margin freed up.
Lucky coincidence I looked at the GU chart right as the price spike occurred.
But, more interesting, the same thing happened again with EJ trades. JFHullMA triggered Margin Trader and Margin Trader kept opening trades using JFHullMA.
It too would have been very profitable - only I wasn't awake when the 172 pips jump happened.
It could have been another large profit with 172 pips on approximately 220 trades of 0.1 lots.
Currently, EJ is in drawdown. Waiting to see if goes into profit.
Don't know if this is even possible for one EA to open trades using another EA.
Thanks Joe for a very interesting set of EAs.
Magic number on trades 444014 but EA log shows errors.
If the JFHullMA EA didn't open the trades a different EA had taken over and opened BUY trades using bogus magic number.
I think it would be better not using my EA on Renko charts. At least for now. My framework haven't been developed or tested for Renko charts. At least for now.
And for now I haven't energy and time to support Renko charts.
Already removed EA and closed all Renko charts.
Now focused on JF4XTRADER testing.
