1) Which version of it are you referring to? Nyse's or Malcolmb's or other? There's a half dozen variations out there all jammed into that same single threat that nyse started.
2) I couldn't agree with you more. Once I started looking at VSA, everything else looked like garbage to me. My eyes were opened wide.
3) PLEASE help Gary and I build an EA. We need all the help we can get. You would be a great addition with all your expertise.

DislikedI am not sure the vsa method would work with this method. Who knows I maybe incorrect but the VSA method by itself is like finding a lepricon's gold at the end of a rainbow!
Didn't change anything with the gmt....what does the log say about what type of trades were taken? Were they both the same filter?
DislikedGary, when we keep default for offset recognition (me at FXDD), the test read-out on the upper left chart does not reflect that (it says "GMT+0").
Is it however correct? Or should I manually add +2? (did FXDD stay +2 or go to +3 last Sunday)?!
*So* pleased you all are staying with this. And if you implement VSA also, whoa!

DislikedHi Gary, Damon, Jeff, Black Wolf, and Everyone Else that has taken interest in the Sling Shot!
If it is possible to write up the EA for the use of this indicator that was given to us by "ThatWasMe" then it should be a big help in having a very serious EA indeed.
I apologize in advance if I have perhaps intermingled too much into the benefits of the VSA thread.
Damon, I definitely do not wish to detract from all of your awesome work that you have done here, so I especially know that this is perhaps touch-n-go as this is YOUR THREAD.
The automatic gmt offset was a contribution by sayembara. It works but the name of the broker in the ea has to be exact as you see it in the comment section of the screen. sayembara wasn't sure about all the correct spellings for the brokers......I know it was not correct for ForexMeta and showed '0' as well until I got the exact name/spelling correct and then it worked fine. You can just set it manually in the mean time (like in the earlier versions) and it works fine. I'll be happy to correct the spelling, add "inc" or whatever the...Ignored
DislikedI have followed with interest the community exchange and development of the Slingshot ea. I have minimal experience with Metatrader, and am generally all thumbs. I would like to try Gary's version 3.5 mq4. I have managed to compile the 3.5 mq4 file and drag it into a chart. I would appreciate advice how to set up the ea so it executes. Do I need to change the parameters in the Input section? I am also unsure what to do with the Slope Direction mq file. Advice and direction much appreciated.
DislikedSetting it the old way didn't work either. I don't see FXDD or anything in the comments section. Wonder if that is why.Ignored
DislikedHi Junior -
Not sure what the problem is with the ea....Damon is using FXDD now I think and hasn't reported any problems. Whether FXDD is correct as an automatic option in the ea or not shouldn't have any bearing on the manual setting of the GMT offset......the code for the manual setting hasn't been changed and I tried it, worked fine. Just make sure the "GMT_Offset_Autoset = false".
If that fails, all I know to do is reset the ea tonight. If your trying the ma or slope(hma) filters, the ea doesn't need any lead time to figure out filter...Ignored
DislikedHi All -
Today's results were good.....please see charts below.
The ma filter produced 5 trades with 4 winners and a net +47 pips! However, the 4th trade shouldn't have been taken, so I'll have to figure that one out.
The slope(hma) filter produced 1 trade for a + 18 pips! Another
The ma continues its high winning rate, not enough data in on the slope(hma) filter yet to tell how it will do.
DislikedGary: Thank you very much. I apparently was close. I was getting the smiley face. The only chart I have put up thus far with the Slingshot ea installed is a 30 minute USD/JPY. I have since installed the Slope indicator. This may be old ground, but what other filters do you like?
I appreciate the work you have put into this.
