Thanks Dave. So, just to clarify, lot sizing is Equal, like 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X,...or, by Equal do you mean the Same as Forex Cure 0.98 and Tom's EA: 1X,1X,1X,3X,6X,9X,..etc.
Stop Loss...., yes I can set it....
And for Duration, the setting should be in minutes. Then 2 days would be '2880'.
Last thing, another question, what is the formula to use for lot sizing? E.g., I had $3000 to start with, Risk = 10 and multiplier is 6, what is the progression of Lot sizes both internally, then real?
Mine is heading there very quickly also. Bummer! Is there a setting that will tell the EA to stop making trades once a certain margin level is reached? If that was selectable we might be able to ride out a downturn. I have noticed that once the cycle starts the EA will keep making trades until the account finally blows up.
I can prevent EA to open new baskets at some point BUT stopping taking new trades to existing basket is lethal in my opinion cause they are likely to never close themselves and lead to account blow-out.
Drew, do you agree with that ?
The good news is : The duration option works well as I let the EA run for 3 days with a 10 minutes max duration trade and they all orders in History has last for +/- 10 mn (average 11mn).
