2) the SL it seems to far away from the most recent high/low. Please see the picture.Ignored
DislikedI intended adding this to the bot - I just forgot.
I will do this tomorrow.
The newer version using the moving average rather than tma is this more relable in back testing than tma ?Ignored
DislikedThanks Steve, I have been following your Beast thread and am really looking forward to this one...I have two demos for the Beast and I am setting one up for this one now. I would love to be able to post some of my statements but I haven't been vouched for yet.Ignored
DislikedHi Steve , thank you for your work as usual - I don't post often so dont shoot me down please- in a previous posting on bobs thread for this system some back testing was done using sl set to half of distance between previous hi/low and entry. This resulted in a drop in successful trades from 55% - 38% but a profit expectancy increase from .35 to .85. The equity curve was improved drastically - TP was opposite tma band.

DislikedOn a positive note, I did find out to pause a visual backtest as soon as it starts, right click on the chart, apply the template then restart. A real Duh moment. Cheers.
DislikedI am running the manual system in conjunction with the bot for a comparison basis. I have had a couple of manual trades fire that when I look at the bot they are not taken and the trading status description says not looking for a trigger. The middle line of the tma and the weekly ma were touching at the time. I am wondering if you built in a buffer there or if there is another reason that is escaping me.Ignored
I know the feeling. You have no idea how many times I re-installed a demo simply to start a new account. Hey-ho.
DislikedI can add this as an option. Until then, set PipsAddToStopLoss to 0, go to void LookForTradeTrigger() and find the two lines of code (1 for buy and 1 for sell):
stop = GetLow();
stop = GetHigh();
