Unfortunately, the maximum data size to show my EA only allows me to show a backtest of maximum 9 years. But my EA also worked fine in the time not included to the backtest as you can see on the appended picture.
I'm pleased to see that you've analysed my EA so quickly. Thanks for your advise.
To 1: It doesn't seem to be possible to change the spread to exactly 2 pip on my MT4-installations. The nearest options are 1 pip or 3 pip, thus I run the appended backtest in 3 pip mode. On my real Account (Alpari UK) I see a spread somewhere between 1,2 pip - 2 pip. The broker himself says that in average the spread should be typically 1,6 pip.
To 2: The EA only decides to buy or not on every new bar. SL and TP are independend from simulating open bars or Tickdata. It only causes much longer lasting simlulations (meanwhile, I waited for the new Results more than one hour..). That's why I only operate with open bars for myself.
Of course my Program still is in profit :) The performance is down due to the 3 pip spread, but the upward tendency is there. Please take into account that the above report was made on an classic Account with a constant Lotzise of 0,1 and the new results where created with a micro Account and a Lotzise of 0,01.
I've uploaded my EA as .ex4 - File. If you're interested, you can backtest it with eg. 2 pip spread and better model quality of Tickdata on your own device.
thanks for the compliments. I'm kind of flattered.
I developed this EA in 2010/2011 with some ideas I became while playing with market data in Matlab. My goal was to develop a robust and self-learning or intelligent EA which performance should be independend from the market conditions. Therefore I desinged a Money Management that analyses the performance of each strategy during the past market and current market.
Actually, the implemented strategies use indicators and price actions. But I could also include totally different robots (eg. Neural Networks).
I think, that the robustness of my EA can be increased significantly by implementing some more ideas I have. But at the moment I don't have time for developing.
Thanks for your invitation to that broker. I'll test it, as soon as I've got some money to 'play'.
thanks for your interest. I just openend a small PAMM-Account on alpari-forex.com today. https://alpari-forex.com/en/investor/pamm/314143/ If invested on such a PAMM-Account you only pay a Fee when you really earn money. On months with losses you won't have to pay anything.
On that Account I combine the results with FX Wave Surfer of different currencies. By doing so I press home the advantage of the portfolio-effect. My idea was to set the risk-parameters in a way that the simulated historic DD would have been around 20-30% in the last 8 years for each currency.
Perhaps it would be good for you to get an Account yourself via https://alpari-forex.com/ too and to invest with me on my PAMM-Account. On Alpari-Forex.com You can diversify your money and put some money also into other PAMM-Accounts with great historic results and organize them like funds. You can participate on my PAMM Account yet with 10 €... As my EA does, you should use the portfolio-effect. Thereby you reduce risk and increase your return.
