An automated EA I made based on the Martingale trading system using EMA cross, Pivot-R&S trend and bounce, Bollinger Bands breakouts, and RSI as entry points for higher edge trading.

**Stop loss created in EA but not enabled after constant testing, finally found a suitable range which passed the backtesting from 2005 till now.**

Running on: EURUSD, EURGBP, AUDUSD, USDJPY

Earnings: Set at 0.025% per fully ended trade and ranging from +0.60% earned per day. (Extremely conservative earnings considering this is running on 4 currencies.)


...and no, this is not yet another informercial, im not selling anything, just bored enough to write about this EA tonight. 🙄

Hmmm, due to my mistake. I had closed the computer running this EA while a trade was running which ran up my account when turning it back on. All is well.

*Bug Notice*
Noticed that my calculations were wrong by not including the swap amount resulting in a very minimal loss. *Easy Fix*

Let the trading continue!

V. 1.2 Update.

Bug fixes:
 - Fixed the bug resolving swap balance into the trade.

New:
 - Swap Biased. Created a swap balanced biased buy/sell boolean trade open which will basically open trades based on if you want to side on positive swaps only. (Ex. 1 lot *at 100,000* AUSUSD swap for buy/sell is 6/-20...with biased trades, you can have so that it only opens proper buy signals.)

- No Trade Spike. Since this is an enhanced martingale based trading system based on reverse and bouncing trends, I made a No Trade Spike value which will negate a trade from opening if a candle becomes too wide, too fast. Using the global variable storing system, this will check the time and difference for each tick and if it becomes too fast of a trend, the trade will not initiate.
(Currently set at 35pips in 30 seconds.) *Still in testing*



Future Updates:
- I want to create a friday no trade time deadline as I prefer not to have any open trades when the market closes for the weekend due to possible unexpected jumps in the market that might occur. Hopefully I can make this day based and time based so we do get some morning and mid day action.



Other than this, so far so good...cleared my +10% goal in under 15 trading days on a $5k account.
This is highly recommended on a 10K account for marginal purposes, especially with me using 4 currencies. (So that would be 5% in 15 trading days.)

Do you have a graphic picture of your back test ?

You do it month by month with 5k Account or 5k account let it run through 5 years ?
Do you do 4 currency back test separately also ? That sure eat a lot of times.


I also doing some low gain low risk martingale back testing, but so far no any good luck.

Even with setting to very low Risk, my Seeker Skyline still facing big challenge on 2007 and need 10k to pass.

Yea, I did 3 years, Even on my macbook pro and all its glory...it took several hours just for one currency since this is checking tick by tick.

...and I did it several times since a lot of the original figures I put in crashed and burned.

This system was based off of one i found for free at the forex factory which was pretty horrid if you did a year, I basically did figure testing and lot ratio testing for several days till I found one that lasted 2 years but it failed at 3.

From there, I customized the code to my own perspective of the markets using Pivot Points to make a biased buy or sell open, along with RSI, BB, and the basic 3 EMA crossing for entry.

With that, it lasted the 3 year range with a 5K starting balance (and let it run) and it ended some where in the range of 16k...but then again, this was based off EURUSD only.


...I'd really have to redo a backtest to tell you exact figures. As for 5 years, man, I didn't have that much patience! (My current EA made about 400+trades in 15 days, imagine 5 years!!)

I have to do a new backtest anyways with my new addons and bugfixes so i'll let you know how it goes!

Another unusual high gain day due to me fixing some errors and settings reset to 5x the normal earnings for a few hours. Everything back to my optimal settings but +1.5% gained because of this.

Version 1.3 Update

  - Minor Bug Fixes

  - Implemented a Friday no-trade system where to prevent open trades from staying open, the EA will stop trading on friday after a given set hour. This will not affect already open trades and it's original routine. (Currently set at 12pm ET giving a 5 hour cushion before day closes)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Glad to announce this EA being up for a full month today and it has reached +20%. Although this might more or less be inaccurate due to the compile error on June 23 in which part of the day the system was over earning not at the optimal setting which resulted in a 1.5% gain in the day instead of a normal 0.45-0.70% day...but i'll take it!

Also, RIP Michael Jackson.

Since making 20%. I am increasing the return per completed trade round.

From: 0.02 - 0.03% per completed trade round

To: 0.03 - 0.04% per completed trade round


Not a drastic increase but when dealing with a Martingale Grid based EA, a small increase can be a big mistake.

Stop trading activated at 12 Noon for those currencies not being traded at this time. Will continue and complete cycle for those that are open.

Good run this week with the slight increase in per completed trade.


My next increment in per completed trade should will probably take place near the $8 - 10k mark...
...which should be in another 30 (@ 8k) to 60 (@ 10k) trading days.
