Ok now there's a fx-seer_15. But what happened to the fx-seer aggressive? Was it removed because it's dying like fx-seer_50? Doesn't look good for me if you guys do this. So you have multiple accounts with different settings and only show the profitable ones? I was going to buy this EA because of the honesty from the guys and even set up VPS for it but I don't think I'll do it now.
Now running with 1000$, 65% and the EA opens a single position with 0.22 LOT. First time i see that the ea does what the fxseer-accounts here do. Of course i have more than 1000$ , but it's probably the right way to force this ea to reduce number of positions and total LOT.
Neither 40% nor 50% did the same enter and exit points than my account did. Completely different.
And in additional a warning : never change the risk value when positions are open bevause the ea will open additional positions related to the new risk value (even when changing down form 50 to 15 you will get new positions instantely ! I had 4 positions. After changing to 15% i had 7 positions !!!, 5 lost, 2 won).

Hello, WendyL. Everything fine with aggressive account, it just have the same drawdown as it was at fx-seer_50. Many people don't understand that it's aggressive account and the drawdowns just a matter of time. But we still have big profit on that account - 230% in total. We just decide to hide aggressive account for a while, until it will be recovered. We don't want to confuse clients with that drawdown, because not all understand what you should expect from aggressive trading. Here is temporary link to aggressive account and you can make sure about our honesty: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/fxseer/fx-seer-aggressive/713032/plYRpdXtJqHZmu74tze5
After performing optimization at 99%, I can see that 65% has the best profit factor - however this seems to only trade about once a week (at the US close). The best % looks like 100 - where all sessions are traded - there is a lot (40%) of drawdown but the profit factor is good (1.4) over the last 4 years.
I would go with 100% but reduce the amount to trade to fit your draw down requirements.
Perhaps the vendor would consider telling us exactly which % of profit trade on which sessions - or even better, remove the % monthly profit parameter and replace it with a risk and enable/disable each session as required.
@FXJester, there is an other real test in the Net : 40% and 50% almost lost (test was a couple of month, there was the big loss in between). 15% and 65% won. I run with 65% and it trades at least 2 times a week. January : 3 8 9 10 13 14 15 16 17.
