Hi gwindy, I am also using the same broker, may I know what is the value you put in Slippage?

Good luck in the morning mate!
I auto-closed out 30 minutes before close on Friday arvo. -87 pips on my solo AUDUSD. (ouch)
All the best. I think lots of us are hoping it turns in your favour.

Cheers Sticko. I closed out last night with 3K loss but clawed back today with 2K. Happy with that really as that AUD did some crazy sh#t.

You can say that again! For me today was a winner, I too clawed back almost all of my losses from Friday. I've stiil got confidence in the EA.
In the next day or so, I may have a question or two for you about your finer settings😄, in the meantime I'll just do some very minor tweaking myself, and see how it goes.
Mate, best of luck!

Does anybody here use optimizer in your mt4 to optimize on 1-3yrs for each pair, or y'all just use the default settings? Curious. Maybe none of you use optimizer as just one tester pass is slow I've heard?

don't believe 99.9% of the EA e-ads out there my friends!

Yes i was using it but it takes quite some time to do a run, Im playing with the standard settings optimized with 1 or 2 trades to keep the DD lower.

Tried too, but its way too slow. I have been using the default settings and running it on VPS

Interesting gwindy, you lose >20% initially then decide to deposit $7,000, pretty damn good confidence you'd be alright, how'd you figure? If it were me I would've ONLY backed off my lots and then after flurry of recent winning trades kicked myself, Lol. Well, maybe I would've kept same lot sizes and at least broke even too. :)

Hi Nick, I have switched to fixed lots....1 lot for AUD & EUR and 1.5 lots for NZD & GBP.
