all at the same time you cant
you have to be satisfied with the DD of 1 currency at a time.

there is a web site where you can publish multiple back test files, and the system merge all together
but I m not sure if the results will be good and the DD correlated efficiently.
(I dont remember the url of this site)

I'm not a big fan of back testing as it totally eliminates slippage, spread variation and allows EAs to do 40 or 50 transactions per second. In the real world you are pushing to get 3 transactions per second.

Back testing is good to sell EAs though ;)

Last sunday I spent 5 hours with one of my 2 Tradefort VPS accounts connected to a dead comliink. So if you see a long period of no trades you might want to check to make sure that it's still on a live connection.

If you are makeing less than 100% a month you aren't doing it right!

You might get away with .02 but if you use .05 I can pretty much guarentee your account will be toast today or tomorrow.
Sure you'll make more money but your drawdown will go up faster than your profits..

   No errors and no trades. Manually I did 4 trades and picked up around 180 Pips with a Lot size quite a bit bigger than the 0.01 Envy starter.

The Power and Trading accounts started with a HeadRoom of around 4,500. My account has around 45,000 HeadRoom. What this means to me is I have a massive margin reserve at the expense of ROI. I'm tempted to increase the opening Lot size from 0.01 to say 0.05 and still maintain a HeadRoom of around 9,000 or twice the HeadRoom amount of the Power and Trading accounts.

well... its not a good idea.

ask the forexenvy team to get the right setup for your account size. they provides the best setup.
with minimal risk, forexenvy can open 15 trades from 0.01 up to 12 lots (so a total of +-30lots for 1 currency only)
so if you have 2 currencies in this scenario, you'll have a minimum of 30 lots opened + the other currencies... this starts to be big...

you cn do some backtesting to see the result of your setup, and see the level of risk generated.

If you are makeing less than 100% a month you aren't doing it right!

I agree.
but this forexenvy, the slippage & spread has near no effect. and if your broker provides fixed spread, the effect is almost inexistant.
and from an overall perspective, a back test give you some idea on how the EA lives and the type of movement we can expcect to see based on different market moves.
if you see a constant drop, you can expect the same result to your account... no? :)

All OK now. Envy has opened trades on every chart. Forgot I had to enable Trading on EACH chart.

Anybody know why Envy Trading Point is making a lot more money than Envy Long/Short? Is Envy Trading using the Ultra Set files or is it a precursor of Envy 3.0?

The risk is higher on this account. and both the long & short cycles are enabled.
Personnaly I got 100% in march, the level of risk was high, but 100%... and long cycle only.
so we can have big differences based on the size of the account.

Hi Will,

I would have thought the set files would have adjusted the Envy settings to generate an equal risk level and ROI for each funding level. I noticed some of the setting did alter when I went from my initial $500 to $1,000. I seems as the funding increases, the entry Lots stays the same but the increased Lots used for loss recovery do increase, which makes sense as the increased funding generates more HeadRoom.

Envy Trading must be running more aggressive settings. Maybe the old Ultra settings? How do you think they increased risk? It still opens with 0.01 Lot trades. Anyway I have asked TE why Envy Trading is delivering a higher ROI than Envy Long/Short.

I'll plot how it trades and compare that to Envy Long/Short. IE, the rate it increases the Lot sizes when the market is moving against it.

100% ROI in March. I'm impressed. You much be VERY happy. You are running standard Envy set files?

in march the settings were the default one, only the long cycle...
but...
I got a margin call at the end of february ;)
using the long + short cycles with the sets from the team, instaforex remove the bonus... which cause the MC...

so I'm starting from the bottom in march... its why the risk was high. but I recover half of the lost in 1.5 month.
now I'm running long cycle, I have increased the initial lot size. So I keep an agressive set.
I also run 2 short cycle using the default settings.
and I monitor closely the activity.
I'm at 35% in april.

so I'm happy... forex envy works perfectly. but its very important to monitor it closely and to take care about the bonuses...

I'm curious to see the power edition in action...
