DislikedChanged lot size back to 0.1 and MaxMarginToUse is at 0.2. UseSmallestLot = false
So I think now I am good to go and the system will open 0.02 lots (not 0.1). Right?Ignored
DislikedIt's a ver 02 of the Add EA. It uses one-tenth the customary lot size across the board and maintains that same small lot size for the added trades.Ignored

DislikedThe lot sizes start out normal. You favor starting out with small lot sizes?

DislikedThis is very interesting, I have had two Basket14_01 ET2 2% Margin 1% profit on 100:1 accounts (real money) since the start of trading on Monday (or Sunday night depending where you are).

DislikedI don't think it's broker dependent. I think it has a great deal to do with timing. If you are lucky you start your EA and catch a good cycle and it just works great, never getting caught in a long trimming period. On the other hand, you can start one maybe only a short time later and it catches a bad cycle and gets bogged down in longer trimming periods. I've seen that happen often with demos.
