Just some background to this account:

Started Dec 2008 trading FAPT, made good gains for the first month before the losses started in Jan and Feb 2009 (this is the first part of the graph).

I then started grid-trading in March 2009 but with FAPT on low risk with manual intervention. This was gradually phased out when Megadroid was released in April.

I now trade grid systems using GT Shadow on AUDNZD, EURCHF and EURGBP with Megadroid ADT as a backup system.

It seems to work quite well and I intend to go forward on this basis.

Hi! This looks very promising:-) Do you use standard settings on the GT-Shadow, or have you altered it in some way?

Can I also ask which broker you use?

I am considering using both robominer and gt shadow. Maybe only one is needed. There does not seem to be much information on gt shadow. What would be good sources?

Hi David,

I would reccommend you try

Bob on the forum is the joint-creator of Robominer / GT Shadow and is very helpful in answering your questions.

Certainly you dont need both Robo and GTS because by default they trade in exactly the same way, the only difference being that GTS is fully customisable allowing you to adapt and create your own strategies as your knowledge of grid trading grows. However, the downside is its increadibly complicated to set up with dozens of different parameters to configure.

Robominer is much simpler and idiot -proof but of course doesnt have the flexibility.

The big loss (in pips) on Nov 2nd was due to me closing out some of my short positions in EURGBP. The remaining EURGBP trades have now been fully hedged and locked in a £420 loss which I will unwind gradually over the next 2 months.

Trading EURGBP has been a big mistake which I hope not to repeat!

In addition AUDNZD has been trending upwards following the AUD rate rises so I added another £2000 to the account to increase my safety margin.
