1mn after I started demos on IamFX they placed orders.
I suspect the problem comes from Symbols name that are exotics (ex : EURUSDiam) on IamFX. I would be the programmer adapted the EA to that kind of naming. But there are way-arounds that allow the EA to work on any type of pair naming (exotic or regular).
Drew, you might want to test FXCure on a broker which have regular naming and talk with your programmer in order to have the EA compliant with any kind of naming.
Hi all, with regards to the problem I indicated earlier about having singleton negative trades closed, I asked the programmer about this and he said that problem was my own fault, by changing some parameters of the EA while it has collected data. He says to reset the EA of each chart - even if there are no open orders! - because data is being collected internally on lower level orders, so there may be data collected internally that gets corrupted when you change an EA setting. Here's his reply:
'this is some way to avoid that error.
- never change timeframe/period and EA setting while EA attached
- close the chart where EA attached or remove EA from chart option / right click on the chart then expert and select remove EA.
this is only way to reset all data recorded, that's it.'
I am going to remove the EA of all my charts now, and then put it back on each one - basically restart fresh with the current Equity...
I have been running it with risk 3 multiplier 0. Yesterday I had several baskets close at a loss. For example, Buy ERUNZD -1086.67 opened at 1.61632 ERUNZD-447.53 opened at 1.61135 ERUNZD+386.60 opened at 1.60820
All closed at 1.60787
Is this the stop loss kicking in? I haven't changed any of the settings or chart times. I have restarted my computer a few times since the start. Just trying to determine if it is a bug or it is programmed that way.
I am starting a different demo account to try a multiplier 3 will let you know
Hi Greg, multiplier 0 means ALL trades are opened, including the 1X's - which generally ARE a loss. (but not always) Anyway, on your History, right-click and turn Comments On. You will see the Level of the orders closed. I would be curious to know if they are 1X or 3X. (it will say something like 'FX_Cure BUY 3' or 'FX_Cure BUY 1' - the 3 is a 3X level order and the 1 is a 1X level order) please let us know... ----
Now your new demo account with multiplier 3 means ONLY 6X and larger levels trades will be opened. ---and this might not be for a week or more, so be patient in this case, as the data has to accumulate for some time....
