We will have the EA available soon, but I wanted to get this under way so we can start assigning optimization tasks.
Please, if you are one of the optimization volunteers, please make a post below as to your level of optimizing experience. Some of the optimizing is a little advanced, and so if you have more experience then others we want to put these tasks with you. All in all though this will not be hard and should only take a few minutes each night.
I have prepared a booklet that goes through the optimization process. Please read it and try not to be overwhelmed. There is a lot of information, but it is not as hard as it looks and we will be here to help you get started.
Thanks again for volunteering and we look forward to making this a successful EA.
For those of you who don't know what we are doing. Along with Gary's skilled assistence we have created an EA based on the 3 different Slope Direction Line filters. This EA can be traded on the GbpUsd, EurUsd, UsdJpy, EurJpy and GbpJpy pairs and maybe more on the 30M and H1 TF.
What we are doing is getting a group of people together who are willing to do nightly optimization tests for 1 pair on 1 TF for 1 filter (or more if you can) based on the last 2 closed trading days. If you have never optimized before, that is okay as we will be here to help you and I also have created a booklet outlining how to optimize this EA.
Please follow the steps in order for no other reason that all our tsts are consistent. If you want to participate as an optimizer, that would be great. The more people willing to spend 15M each night with us, the more pairs and TF's we can optimize and the less work everyone else has to do. It will be a win - win for everyone.
The only thing we ask is that you optimize on an FXDD platform, and that you optimize in the order laid out in the manual. Once you get it, the process will be so easy.
So, please give us a post with your level of optimizing experience, get a FXDD demo account and join the fun.

As I do not know which pairs and TF's will be profitable and which won't we may have to eliminate some as we go along.
