This experiment uses a demo account to test a different approach using BlueMonkey EA.
Original BlueMonkey EA has a nice position management and recover algorithm but the entry timing is no good.
With Banana AddOn, the order is opened at a best point, trying o use the perfect timing. After that, the position is managed by BMEA.
The Banana AddOn opens an order based on the H1 trend, and the timing is adjusted by a filter (EMA 3) in the same timeframe.
We will make a satisfactory conclusion about these experiment if the baskets have a minimum number of orders - i.e. if the basket generates less drawdown and/or less orders than original´s BMEA full trading.
The Banana AddOn also adjusts an important parameter forgetful by BMEA - a catastrophic SL point. Also, as the experiment goes in a successful direction, other improvements will be added like the margin amortization and more.

Important NOTE: The risk is set to open 0.01 lot to each 1.000 USD on account. The experiment allows all 6 pairs to open orders and baskets at the same time, this must be considered when analyzing drawdown.

I see BM has opened six trades automatically by ordering the closed trades, the ones with no SL or TP. Is this banana free? Also if anyone knew how to get that leverage to show the number 2 I think we'd be in business. Good luck

The BlueMonkey doesn´t use a stoploss level for each order, it use the margin % level to close all positions. The Banana AddOn can change the stoploss level of all orders, including those that BMEA opens (but for now this funcionality is not implemented yet). I have no intention to sell Banana AddOn because it´s only an experiment. If Alex shares the logic of BMEA the Banana AddOn would be very profitable but we don´t know exactly how BMEA works. I guess we need more 2 or 3 weeks to adjust the Banana AddOn. The leverage displayed by BMEA is also a mistery but I don´t believe it will impact our performance.

How do you create an add on to work in conjunction with BM. Could you explain where to start, or better still share a template so we can create our own. Would be greatly appreciated.

Hi D,

The Banana AddOn is not fully functional. I need more 2/3 weeks to see how BMEA is working with this AddOn and make some fine adjustments.

The BMEA only needs to identify the magic number associated to the account. Of course the order must be oppenned with the BMEA criterias to have the exact original´s performance. Now I don´t know what are all those criterias because of that the Banana AddOn is performing different (but seems better). We need more time to evaluate.

Some considerations until now:
1- Yes, we have a crazy profit factor and equity grow in just 3 days. (20% up / 9% DD) But for now this is not so important. The AddOn has an optimal entry point and these logic is optimizing BMEA results.
2- For the first time we have more trades opened by BMEA (12 trades) than opened by Banana AddOn (8 trades). This scenario will be nice to evaluate the BMEA trades management logic. We expect an increase in drawdown!
3- BMEA only starts opening orders when the market is running like BMEA wants. If we take a look at USDJPY we will see that despite the pair make good profits and the pair is now with a buy and a sell order totally orphaned. Doens't seem that BMEA is interested in that pair for this moment. No orders opened by BMEA in with this pair since the beginning of the experiment.
4- BMEA gives a hint: when it will NOT manage a pair the variable/line 'BMEA_sell_next' and 'BMEA_buy_next' differs 50 pips from the variable/line 'BMEA_sell_base' and 'BMEA_buy_base'.

Many people are asking me about Banana AddOn... This is an EA that I developed to feed BMEA, they work together and you need to have 2 graphs of each pair opened and loaded by BMEA and Banana AddOn. Today this is not the best option to revive the BMEA project because I´m still working on it. Maybe in the short future time I really believe that we will perform better than only using BMEA alone.
You can see in my first post what is the logic inside Banana AddOn.

I must say, dispite this being just a test it looks amazing. It seems to be picking amazing entry points as well as being managed well. I'm really hoping this will continue in a good way and we don't risk losing our investment on the bmea. Really excited to test it as well!

Cheers!

Now we have 60% up in 4 days and I manually adjusted the initial open lot volume to 0.07 maintaining the risk. The Banana AddOn continues to open trades at a surgical point and BMEA successfully manages the remaining trades to close the basket in profit.
We saw an important/risky trade order opened by BMEA witch was 29 times the initial lot. To provide better margin to BMEA job we need to reduce the risk (initial lot) so we will do this in the Real account because the objective of this experiment is to stress the combination Banana+BMEA. There are some tricks I can do to reduce that exposure but the best option was Alex make improvements in BMEA. He started a new DEMO account and did not provide a new BMEA version.
Finally, I manually close both sell and buy USDJPY orders because BMEA did not manage their. I will give a second chance to this pair and removed it from portfolio if nothing happens again in 1 week.
