All settings are default with the exception of TP sets to 10% and SL to 5%. The reason why the total basket is 36.39 instead of 30.00 because I closed the EA to manual trade other accounts. I have to re-opened the EA every time I check for this account and when I re-opened the account, the total basket has exceed 10% thus it closed as it is.

Question,....mrdfx,..the ea only open trades on thuesday ?????? its possible an imput to open trades and close on any day of the week ??
You can set the EA to open on any day you want, but the close time is set to Friday which is the day to close if TP or SL have not been hit.

How do I get the EA to use a percentage of my account for the risk? I've set the "Use Risk % of Account" to true, and set the Risk % to 1.0, and the balance is 38k, but it submitted trades of only 0.01 lots...
{quote} This was is reply,.. Hello artic118, It seems that there may be a small bug with the risk % lot size calculations. I'll get it fixed and upload it. In the mean time use fixed lot. Cheers.

Yup picked up a small bug with the risk % for lot sizing. I've asked my friend to take a look and get it fixed for me. Its normal to pick up some small bugs here and there for a new EA, but all will be fixed up shortly.

mrdfx

Am I correct in assuming that if the mt4 session where the EA is operating must be kept ON as there are NO hard SL/TP?

The EA must be ON all of the time?

I think we need to have back test for this strategy, I just created an EA for backtesting on single symbols , if you have tick data on your mt4, please back test the EA and copy the results here to see which symbols works best . the EA works on UTC time ( it opens position 4 AM on Tuesday ) you can change it if your tick data is from various time frames .

Hi mrdfx,

have you ever thought to launch the bot again, e.g. on Wednesday in case like this one that target is hit quickly ?

Not an invitation to be greedy, just a though.

Best regards,

Hi vivaldi2,

I think back test is a good idea.

However since this strategy operates on basket the ideal would be to run it on 28 pairs simultaneously to know more about the best overall global SL and TP and at which hour/minute of the day to start it.

As far as I know multi-pairs back test is possible only with MT5.

Best regards,
Bubincka

Hi salimc,

it could be an isolated episode, I'm too with icm (demo) and on Tuesday this week at 03:59 my EA didn't open any trade returning MT4 common error, signalling icm demo server unavailability. On previous week, same broker, EA and time trade were opened regularly.

{quote} Excellent! What trade size did you use?
I was using a slightly higher lot size this week than 0.01/$200 as the EA used the fixed lot size instead of risk %. This is getting fixed and should be sorted by the weekend.
