Hi Gerald, A setting of 1.0 Lot size on this size account is suicide in my opinion. I'm running a very aggressive set file on my nano account (obviously a different one to yours) but I think that the GAF is under 1 so indicates a MicroGrid. On EUCHF although all my baskets have closed in profit, I've seen it enter into the 3rd and 4th levels. I purely think that you are throwing your money away with a lot of 1.
A lot size of 0.3 - 0.5 as an initial size would yield high profits but would also allow you to go into a number of levels. If you really want to throw away $2000 then I can give you my PayPal account and I can draw you a pretty graph in return ;)
Hope you do make a mint from these settings though.... 'He who dares..'
I really picked the wrong day...we'll see how good a Blessing this is...yes it is suicide, but I ran some pretty daring backtests where it survived months. All I can do now is wait :\ Good thing the upside was fast, it didn't trigger new orders! BUT, I made 1K today with the Euro going up...so...this is play money man :)
Now that the USD-JPY has recovered from rock bottom (I've gone from Equity £40 back up to a more comfortable £260 after the BoJ intervention) I've now restarted Blessing 3.8 with 4 currencies and 20% portions... Ticking over penny profits using the standard Micro set files on website.
Yeah EURCHF took me on a wild ride...I would not use any set files for that pair with FMC=1...no way! I have it set to 3 so that it can buy instead of selling it. I will use this account as a testing ground for other agressive set files in the future, but for now it is not trading.
Yeah, I don't use EP either, this was just a crazy experiment with large lots, but today...something really stupid happened: I had the POSL set to 300 on one pair...for some reason I thought it would move by itself to always be at 300pips...wrong! at the last seconds I saw the sl got red and triet to change to false or move to 600 but it does not recalculate...you're stuck!
My 10K account, that was a 13K lost 3K...back to square one
