Yeah, where is that big lot video ha ha ha. I don't see any over risk in the accounts here on myfxbook.
So, have you had to honor the refund due to the lack of trades, hence not making the 500 pips guarantee?
And why would you disable the robots in that case?
If that happens to me, don't refund, I'll keep trading 😇
Feb to mid April 2017 were slow months with very few signals so I had to give a few refunds back then but I've only had 4 or 5 refunds in the past 2 years, mostly in March/April right before a big run of wins (of course). I disable the robots to prevent scammers who download the EAs and then ask for a refund 1-2 days later (had a few of those). There's one in every crowd.

Shortly after I installed the group of 3 robots, the 1-Hour took a sell trade on that 150 pips drop in the GBPJPY. Wake up this morning to find it in drawdown as price has rebounded back to where it was.

Not only that, I see the RT account has not sold but actually has a buy position in profit. Something strange there for me but I do have this effect on the markets!

This is broker dependent. In one account I had a sell and in another one (different broker) a buy, during this crazy walk of GBPJPY

yeah, fair enough, I had the same thing with 2 different brokers also, but what does it say about the dependability of this 1-hour robot? which signal / trade will prove to be successful? how does this affect the all the back testing; can you really 'trust' backtesting when we can't even trust forward testing?

I noticed that some clients who got that sell trade are at ECN brokers, who's price feed can be quite different than a traditional spread broker like Oanda. I measured a 3 pip difference in candle closing price on just 1 candle I looked at prior to the big price swing. I'm sure there are even bigger discrepancies during high volatility.

In Forex you must be prepared for this kind of movements. That's why the lot is reduced to starting smallest size after a loss. Long term matters, nothing else and all backtests were excellent for 1Hour robot, even if sometimes it is loosing.

You can disable autotrading any time by clicking the AutoTrading button at the top of MT4. The EA does not know when economic announcements are going to occur and I prefer it that way. Jumping in and out of trades to avoid news will only destroy your performance. This EA uses a 250 pip stop so economic announcements usually have no effect on it and most news seems to push the market in our favor anyway since most banks are merely waiting for the news to pass before the next big push in the direction of the underlying trend.

okay thanks. So you can confirm this account tracking here that the EA has never been manually switched off since it began? also Is there 3 versions of the one EA running on this account, i.e. targeting a 7 and 8 unit cycle and more recently also a 4 unit cycle target added? I have finished reading your ebook it makes a lot of sense. cheers

Yes, I can confirm all of the above is accurate and the EA is now running 3 versions of the EA for a 4 unit, 7 unit and 8 unit cycle target. All 3 of these versions are included with your purchase.

when i buy the ea, you give exactly always the presets for all 3 eas you use in 1 account? means the moneymagment you use for 2 charts , same ea and so on? ... what is the min. deposit to use all 3 eas together? and what means this : ' 3 versions of the EA for a 4 unit, 7 unit and 8 unit cycle target.'

many thanks

The EAs used in all model accounts on MyFXBook are using the default settings but I also include preset files for different sized accounts. If you read me ebook, you will understand what I mean by 4 units, 7 units and 8 units, which is why I tell everyone they should read my ebook so they understand my money management system and terminology before using my EAs.

Hi big fan here of your MM and systems. Is the 8 unit just not reporting or did you remove it?

Good observation. Yes, I just removed the 8 unit version and will allocate it's lots to the 4 unit and 7 unit versions or maybe add a 5 unit version, which has done the best over the past 6 months. That will help smooth out the equity curve. Waiting for the next loss to occur and then I will make the addition.

I purchased following robot from RouletteTrader with source code
1. GBPJPY 15 MIN TF
2. GBPJPY 1 HR BO
3. GBPY 30 MIN CONSOLIDATION

Here is my honest observation about his strategy and his Roulette money management strategy

1.These robot are profitable but not highly profitable as advertised.
2. Back testing that he showing in his site is on very low quality of data when I back test these robots on tick data then there was huge difference.
3. I tested his highly advertised anti martingale MM but I found no advantage over fixed percentage MM but it only complicated money management.
4.Trading strategy he is using is highly optimized so forward testing and back testing results are very different.

The market will trade through it’s path of least resistance .

How did the gain% just drop from over 1000% to 957% when the last few trades were winners. Mine is displaying correctly.

Hi Profifusion,

In July, Oanda moved my acct to a new server, when I made the switch in MyFXBook, it recorded 3 months of duplicate trades due to the new server issuing different ticket numbers to my historical trades. MyFXBook finally removed the duplicate trades today but they also removed 6 of my recent winning trades that should still be in the history. So, I sent them another email today noting the trades they need to place back in the account (or upload a new statement for verification and it will correct itself. Now I'm just waiting for one of the two to happen. The stats are also messed up a bit. The actual gain is about +$982% as of right now.

I see, thanks for the clarification. I read here on myfxbook that Oanda sometimes does not show all the history even after selecting 'All history'. This is the case for my other account. It won't even upload to myfxbook.
