when I stop trading live I will keep trading demo with _somehow-2
I had increased FIX_TP to 7PIP from 6PIP. the reason is I will close trades manually when reached >5PIP and in the case of a fast move or spike I assume price take TP with 7 PIP before my reaction. this will also prevent missing target with <1PIP when market is slow. due I am waiting for the TP and this makes me missing some pips. walker
BTW code issue about slippage effect on TP fixed. need to be tested.
unexpected result of keyboard execution: today I had 3 platforms up and planning to copy trades from 1 to other 2. then suddenly I noticed that with keyboard execution I do not need to copy trades, each EA captures the keyboard input and execute same. but closed the demo one due to high CPU load. walker
today total slippage is -1.40 pip. what I have noticed is EA is setting TP without taking consideration of slippage. It should not be that way. I will check tonight and see whats wrong with the code. I am done today. no more trades. walker
today market is not liquid. moving step by step back and forth. I had missed TP with <1PIP 2 times. it may wait for the Obama speech.
correct. market is changing thats true. but manual traders can adapt that conditions faster then EA s. as you can see from my long post the Ph is making ZIG-ZAG and this kills the trades. market is waving. So Ph must stay in tuned and straight. that is the key of success. ofcourse this must come togahter with experience and good system.
thanks Chikot. the strange point is as you can see there is no word like "market condition" "news" "market is against me" in the Ph post. due after some experience point the only effect for the trades is the Ph. walker
yes starting with smaller equity first and then increase. what I ment with new risk is the FIX_SL change and cancelled rescue plan. $5 per pip stays same. [quote] Chikot posted: You mean $5 per pip? [/quote]
this post is most probably same/similiar for many manual traders. Phsycology(Ph) of a trading day: 1- start of a day: with every start I afraid of having loosers but also feel confident that Patterns works well. 2- first trades: with every start most probably I had my daily goal in a very short period of time. Just watching and catching the patterns. entering trades and exit if necessery even in loss. 3 - daily goal achived: this is the first break point of the day. after having achived the daily goal Ph changes. from that point I start finding reasons to NOT ENTER the new trades. because......
