Are you using default settings? Did you close trades manually?

Yes, I am using default settings and I had to close the trades manually due to some crashes I've had last week. I detailed the issue in my article at

Dear Birt,
2 comments: Based on the manual that I received with the bot, you should increase your lot size since your account already increased to over 8,000 - this should increase the overall gain percentage.

Another comment, I use hotforex for this robot (as recommended by the author) and my start execution was better than yours for about 3 pips. That could be also a factor that you could mention in your article :)

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll keep it to 0.1 until it hits 10k. It was a mistake on my part starting it with 0.1 at 5k.

As for the start execution, a lot more factors are involved there, it could have been slippage or a different price feed, it's very hard to pinpoint the cause. Since mine does quite well already, I'm only glad to hear yours does better :)

Doing quite well? Hardly 10 % since March...

Given the fixed lot size used, 10% since March is not bad. The dramatic growth before that was caused by some problems with the EA, so it's not good as a comparison term.

Birt are you sure you have smart exit ON ?
because your trades are always open longer than usual with mine using the smart exit option ...

Any idea why the performance of FGB on this account is so much worse than on the official real money account?
