That does sound strange. When you drag the EA onto a second chart it does not place it on that chart at all?

Exactly. Just when I finish entering the inputs and press ok the forexflex icon on top of the screen disappears.

Oh, I had that problem with an EA once! There was one of the setting I was forgetting and once I selected it it worked find. Um... let me see if I can remember which one it was.

I actually had my broker help me with that one (FXCM) as it was one of their EAs I downloaded.

P.S. I asked Steve for a copy of the .set file for this EA. Hopefully, he will send to me and I'll share with everyone else here.

Thanks Glenn.

Are you aware if the problem with the trend strategy you mentioned some days ago has been fixed with the new Beta version??

The original Trend Trail Stop function is still not working. Steve has the equity trail as a interim fix. So that is the one you want to use instead of the older Trend Trail Stop. The equity trail stop is working fine though and is a good money maker.

Here is the set file for this account, it uses the EquityTrail mode instead of the trailing mode now as the two cannot currently coincide properly. I feel like the EquityTrail will be a much better alternative for Trendsurfer though, not only for ease of use but flexibility as well.

Note that this account is using a 100 DD Stoploss because I like to split my capital across many accounts, so one account blowing is just equivalent to hitting a stoploss. The difference is I have my exposure spread so far across 15+ accounts each trading different strategies with a mix of pairs that blown accounts are far less likely than hitting a 30%ish stoploss on a single account.
Each account is allowed the maximum breathing room to survive much larger draw downs.

Thanks a lot for the set file.

Actually the strategy you mention is the one I plan to follow as well. Splitting the balance among multiple accounts is a nice way to diversify risk.

Can you confirm that the settings you are using are the same as the ones published in your page for the strategies.

Thanks.
