I can answer for him, yes, long HV cycle only. as the short cycle required some manual management today, Birt didn't use this cycle as its objective is to have the EA working alone without any intervention like the others he tests.
and he follows all the rules by withdrawing the money at a regular basis... :)

I don't understand the 12.18 lot eurusd trade closed at 09.14.2012 17:03. It looks like it was part of the big basket of last week, but got closed by what it seems in error. Envy detected it and reopened a new 12.18 lot not much later.

So the recent hit on this account seems an error. The closure of a single 12.18 lot trade with a loss is not in line with Envy's strategy.

Are you aware of any errors Birt?

I also noticed that on Friday and was looking at the logs... Seems like a bug in v2.1 - Envy closed it and then reopened it. I was unable to figure out why that happened.

Hi Birt,

did you close manually some position on USDJPY?

I have a similar 'fat lots' issue and I'm wondering what to do.

Actually my situation is slightly better for the moment... 😄


On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Wow... holy blowout batman.

Brit, most of your live forward test accounts were for $300. This one was much larger.

Real money? Cent account?

Cent account, of course, I don't have that kind of cash to put in a forward test account. Anyway, Martingales are a chance game. I probably should have updated to the new version which might have saved the account. I'm still considering restarting the forward test with the new version (although the new version is still a Martingale and thus inherently risky). The main issue is that I didn't have the time to take care of it yet.
