   Hey Rick,

So for the last couple of months, I've been using recommended settings by FH developer: Pipstart: 31, TP 45, Booster 1.68, Max Sell/Buy 9. I've been trading only G/U. This last 2 days of decline (Nov.14-16) have taken me in on all 9 buy trades. Last night, I deposited more funds into my acct (Pepperstone Razor 400:1) as I knew the $3k I had in there would not be enough to handle another 100 pip drawdown. Sure enough it's dropped more today and had I not added another $2k, I would have lost. Now, I sit with 9 buy trades and a huge DD. I can only hope for a nice retrace back up to get me out. Otherwise, I will need to add more funds or take a hedged position.

The point I make is for those who read this, $3k is not enough for trading FH. I got lucky starting with $2k and made it to $3k. But now here I sit with a huge DD and my TP is about 150 pips away. For G/U, it's not a prob for it to move that much, but, market sentiment sure is bearish.

The other point I want to make is I see the settings you're using: Pipstart 21, TP 35, Booster 1.7, Max 9
I see your demo accts have survived this fall with G/U these past 2 days. With a 35 TP as opposed to a 45 TP, it looks like the retraces are easier to get. I think I will make the change as well once I finagle my way out of this situation I'm in now.

I will also make the change to FXPrimus to get 500:1 leverage and go through Cashback Forex to sign up to get the commission rebates.

Kind Regards.... Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Sorry to hear about your current floating DD. I have been there so I know exactly how it feels.

The Forex Hacked developer recommended settings and lot sizes are suicidal IMHO. I noticed much lower DD with PS 21, Bst 1.7. I was originally running with max orders 12 but reduced this to 9. The only other thing I am doing which most do not is I have allowTrending on which will cause Hacked to dump the entire basket at a loss if things get too hairy. That is why you see the occasional day (5 so far on this account) that closed at a loss. No way 3K is enough even at 0.01 lots. I am using 5K per micro and have been getting good results. There are a number of people on Pipcop that are also using these settings on live accounts.

One note about FXPrimus. deathlord (http://www.myfxbook.com/members/deathlord) is having a strange problem with Hacked and FXPrimus's Ecn account reported on Pipcop (http://www.pipcop.com/forums/current-live-robot-reviews/411-forex-hacked-13.html). The cause it not yet known. A new post says that he has given up on FXPrimus and suggests InstaForex as a replacement. I posted back with the fact that FPA has classified InstaForex as a scam and countered with GoMarkets which some of the guys are using on live accounts with Hacked and is performing well.

One other thing. Don't do Cashback Forex. Read the agreement. Where do you think they get the extra pips? They actually increase your spread and refund you. Talk about nuts!

   Looking good Rick, if only Alpari actually offers a live account like their demo specs we'd all be raking it heheheheh.

The trouble is that Alpari UK demo's are sweetened to look really nice and you cannot possibly trade Hacked live with them due to their stupid lot size restrictions unless you have 50K to start for a classic account.

Hi Rick.... Thanks for the tip on Primus. I knew about Instaforex having red flags. I'll check with GO Markets. I wonder if they will allow for 500:1 leverage no matter the amount of funds in the account? I shall inquire.

Re: 'allowTrending' parameter set to true, what is the stop loss number of pips you input for all to close out? Utilizing this sounds like it would be a good idea. Yes you take a hit, but FH would recover that in no time.

Even with 50k i don't feel easy trading FH with 0.1 lots. Like Ryan I will probably go live with GO by the end of the month. I will probably set a base of $8k and withdraw every 2k if they are stubborn with the leverage. I hope they sort out their spread issues by then, check Forex Factory forums as they received numerous complaints since switching liquidity providers.

I checked out Go Markets. They allow 500:1 leverage up to $10k. It drops to 400:1 from $10k to $25k, after which it drops to $300:1. It continues to drop as the account grows, so I'm not interested in this as I want to eventually put about $20k in. I'm going to try Plimus Variable spread account, not ECN, and see how it does. Demo means nothing to me so I will start live once I can get myself out of the DD I'm currently in. I need price to reach 1.5872 on GU ;o)

Run Ea on Demo and use a Trade Copier to copy to live. Trade copiers are much more resistant to broker tricks.

Just to clarify this, I do not recommend InstaForex (yet), I just did some promising backtests and am starting forward testing right now. ;-) And the reason I am doing this despite the SCAM indication from FPA is that they are the only broker I know where the system automatically adds new deposits immediately to the account, so even with a news event during the day that causes heavy DD you are able to refund the account. With all the australian brokers including GoMarkets you have to wait for their business hours during European night, which means with a heavy movement during the day it might already be too late for the account. Apart from this, I am not a fan of InstaForex after all, but one reported case of SCAM is not enough for me to completely disregard the broker, as long as I don't have a better alternative.

And my FH problem does not only occur on the FXPrimus ECN account but also after I had them switch it to variable spreads. So whatever it is, it is not related to ECN specs. No idea what is causing it, but since noone else seems to use FXPrimus live, I have given up on solving this for now.

Exness also does instant deposit to account. Reliable and honest broker with max leverage 1:1000. All withdrawals are automatic and instant. www.exness.com

NB: I am not affiliated with them. I have been trading with them for years,

@ Deathlord: Keep us posted on Instaforex. I did check their site out and asked some questions with their CS and they were prompt at answering me. I'd be curious to see if they will make a good candidate with FH. I will try Primus Variable Spread and see if I have any issues. Will let you know in a week or two.

@ Ralfxify: the Exness link you posted didn't work. Try this link for those who want to check them out: http://exnessfx.com/
FH may work with them if you open a cent or mini account. But not if you open a classic acct. They only allow 100:1 on their classic acct and the minimal lot size is .10 (mini). That will not sustain FH at all.

I am using Pepperstone Razor with 400:1 leverage. I will hang onto them in case Primus doesn't work for whatever reason. Pepperstone has been great all around. I like the fact that they too will allow for instant deposit (which I had to do the other day with my positions in huge DD). I would have lost it all had I not topped it up with another $2k. When I made the transaction via credit card, the funds were in within the hour. I really like this feature especially when there are open positions already. The only negative is that they go as high as 400:1 leverage, not 500:1.

Cheers!
Ryan

I have a Pepperstone and a GoMarkets account as well, and they also don't have instant deposit. Pepperstone only adds credit card deposits within an hour during business hours, so it's the same problem with them as with all others, when you trade GBPUSD or EURUSD. Regular news-time (especially currently, when most 'bad' news are from the EU credit crisis) is outside their business hours.

So it's very similar to GoMarkets, who book creditcard and paypal deposits within 3 hours during business hours.

I will have a look at exness as well, but on their symbols overview page for forex, it says something about 200:1 leverage, so that somehow contradicts the 1000:1 leverage from the account overview.
