Hi There, Its me again! Are you running Long and Short Power Cycles? Just beware, if you get margin called, and the broker closes out your biggest position, Envy will open it right back up, which in turn will trigger the broker to sell it again, and this cycle continues until you stop the EA. This happened to me yesterday. You can check my account if your interested - I made it public. Thanks in advance, Dale
Hi, I dont think it was intended, they probably just didnt think of the possiblilty this would happen. Ive notified support of the bug, but they simply replied 'if you want less risk, use the High Volatility setting for the short cycles'. So not sure if they took me seriously!
This is a grid martingale EA, which means that positions are based on distance from previous trade and multiplier. How is the EA supposed to know, if it is supposed to stop unless you deactivate it? The conditions for the next level trade are met, so the position is opened (again). That is how it works ...
I would imagine the broker would stop any trade being made when you have 0% margin... but if you have 1% or 2%, then I'm sure the broker will let you go for it - especially the moneymaking ones as they're wanting you to fail so they can win anyway.
Exactly madman. Also deathlord, when the broker sells the biggest position, it frees up some margin, so therefore you CAN place the next trade as your margin would now be just above 0, and the ea does, but ENVY opens the same massive position that was just closed. Therefore - i again stress the ea should check the margin before placing the next trade, or the vicious cycle would drain the account in a few minutes.
