    90573Thanks Melissa. Honestly, I enhanced my trading a lot in the process of systems. I expect everyone shared their attempt here also received something.

    You're welcomed to test whatever here. Only let us know what you are planning to do this not too many folks repeating your attempt (I think over three people analyzing the same pair is a waste of effort).

    I want to thank Aha, Phoenix and everybody else for all the hard work and then sharing the results. It is uncommon to stick to a thread in which the guys posting on the page are still currently working and posting on the last. Where others could learn you all have put a version here. Please continue to improve with this ea. I have been trading the system for a few months and think this ea can be a great one.

    Great work everybody

    Thanks

    PS: I would help forward or back evaluation if you need more help.

    95945Thanks Micardo. I think that it should be easy to code these egies.

    I am pretty tightened up this weekend. In communicating them are there anybody interested? Do not worry Micardo, I will find the time.


    How I'd do it
    1. Since every lot has their very own TP SL, I'd put multiple single-lot orders and set the TP/SL in the start so I don't need to maintain them.

    2. Blend two egies into 1 by using the following input parameter list:

    Timetotrade = 0 (GMT), or 2 (London Open)
    NumofOrders = two or three
    StraddleDistance = 50 or 20
    TP1, TP2, TP3 (make profit)
    Reentryifnoprofit = true/false (if false, always reentry when price fall into straddle distance and order was shut )

    Please let me know whether you are planning to get it done. Thanks!

    Can you guys post the results please once you have them.

    Thanks folks I truly appreciate your help!!!

    90573Hey Aha,

    I kind understand what you're saying but the issue is that the stop loss only gets moved to break even after certain TP has been hit. So all prevent losses begin a the point until TP for the two egies targets ahve.

    Also these are 2 different egies for different phsycological head sets so im not sure combining them wll be right.

    Rentry this seems correct to me....

    Thanks Aha

    90573Howard this is correct... these egies are for GBP/USD only.

    90573I wasn't accurate by stating combining two egies. What I meant was it's possible to code one EA for two egies. The EA can operate for egy by utilizing configurations that are different. That will save a little bit work I guess.

    BTW, I will code it in the upcoming few hours.

    Additionally these are just two distinct egies for distinct phsycological head sets so im not sure combining them wll be right.

    Rentry this sounds right to me....

    Thanks Aha

    I don't think in backtesting using egy tester at all, therefore I backtested egy 1 for the month of October on GBP that the result is as follows:

    Number of trades 22
    No commerce days 3
    Days with two entrances 2

    Total pips for two lots 263

    The result is very subjective because there are a number of days when the price moves right on the entry tic and retreats; at such situations the difference between being filled or not filled is rescuing a stop of 100 pips which depends on which broker you is using, since there's almost always a small difference between the feeds, it truly requires forward testing on mini or micro lots on live account.

    Strategy 2 is very hard to backtest manually, again it requires forward testing.

    90573I'll be gone from this thread for about a month--I am driving across the US.

    I will, nevertheless, explore TD REI when I can..if somebody else can pick that up, it would be great.

    I have a number of different thoughts in terms of backtesting and inventing some fantastic money management egy for use with TD combo and TD seq.. . I'll get to this. (it involves some basic statistics and looking at the price after a perfected 9 or on the 13's to get td combo and also td seq).




    P.s. any suggestions for sites to visit, or set to go or things to do in the US?

    905731 Structure (s) Hi Micardo,

    The EA is completed but equally egies are not profitable. I guess your guide backtesting was conducted on daily timeframe. If you go down to hourly, you will realize a lot of times limit order was triggered but price pulled back to stop it out until it takes off. Though the limit order triggered and was put , the loss is hardly matched by the gain.

    Thanks for sharing your work , 90573Hi Howard.

    About your comments on backtesting, I understand you, like many other traders, do not trust EA backtesing: bad experience with poor EAs and, insufficient knowledge on how EA backtesting functions -- no offence, everybody has their own strength and weakness.

    If you are from where I am from, it'd be obvious to you : when the EA is reasonably well designed and tested, you have no reason to not trust the backtesting outcome. In reality, far is probably made errors than person by an excellent EA and works way faster, and it will do it every time so that it's more easy to correct it when it does make errors.

    Micardo's method is a good example. In my EA testing for GBP on Oct. that the egy 1 is not profitable. You may agree with me if you take trades and zoom in to 1H time frame and see how it ends up. But honestly that could be a lot of work for individual.

    Mouteki is just another example. In Sept.. Mouteki system was highly effective and the forum has been mad about it voted #1 as the most profitable method in FF. In the time my EA backtesting result showed that it's not even profitable if I went back for one year. I mentioned softly it needs filters to complete the system, but has been largely failed because there were manual testing results posted every day showing success. I knew those outcomes were either from a time -- you can go that far if you are manually backtesting it, or were biased with emotion and/or negligence -- you can't anticipate a tester doing those dull backtesting rountines makes no mistake. Now one months the flaws begin to show and people begin to wonder if mouteki is profitable in any way.

    Bottomline is, a good EA is like a good human genius, but better and quicker; a bad EA is like a poor human genius, but more stupid and ridiculous.

    Hope this will change your perspective backtesting.
