This is for delanth and anyone who wants to run this EA on limited funds.
Get a CENT account at the well known broker RoboForex - they were voted best Forex broker recently.
Then with only $1000 real $$ you will play AS IF you had 100 times that amount. I like it for being able to tweak the lot sizes. We are limited to 0.01 as the smalllest lot size at other brokers but with 100 times more - we are now dealling in Cents not Dollars - we can use lots like 0.55 (or 0.0055L in dollars) Also, we will be able to 'safely' use more pairs.
Just started a new demo account and attached the EA to 28 1M charts. Excited to see what happens. Also I tried following a link to read about Tom's EA with not much success, more of what I read was about other things other than Tom's EA, where is the best place to read about Tom's EA?
Steve (ForexJack), I know the Tom's EA forum here did spring out in many different directions at times. There are still groups out there on different websites, but I'm not following Tom's EA specifically anymore. I think this EA (if it proves out) or the Trade Copier method on Tom's EA are superior.
So, what multiplier_filter did you use? 1? Anything higher and you might not see any activity for many days. Once it starts accumulating data though, the higher level orders will be quite regular.
Sorry for my ignorance, but are we able to back test the EA? Back testing on EURUSD 1M the EA does nothing, back testing on EURUSD 5M I get the following error 'FX Cure EA(v0.92) EURUSD,M5: invalid lots amount for FreeMarginCheck function'. Broker is IBfx AU 400:1 hedging yes, risk 1, filter 3, account size $100,000.00.
