Hi Shaun.

The system looks good. Do you have a backtesting result we can see?

This is 6 year backtest that I ran from 2008-2013 using the Seer Trading platform. Please note that the returns are not compounded.

No

Several hundred pips. You can spot the exact distances if you look at my trading history.

It was on one pair trading the equivalent of $33,000. I don't know the pair.

Live trading stats are on the system page.

Thanks.
I see there was a very big DD at one point - something like 70%... that's too risky...
I am not familiar with the Seer trading platform. Can you explain what it is?

That is like over a 1000 pip stop. What is the stop set to in QB Pro normally? Was this an outlier?

That's why I trade like a prop trader. I run very high leverage and risk each dollar in the account on a monthly basis. More on the series is available at https://www.onestepremoved.com/basics-proprietary-trading/. The historical probability of me losing the account balance in a given month is 8.5%.

The Seer Trading platform is for geeks and hard core developers. It lets you backtest on a portfolio level and use R, which is for statistics. Their web site is https://www.seertrading.com/.

The stop is set to exactly what you see in the account. I have dynamic exits; the stops are only for dire emergencies.

I've answered all that I care to about the exit strategy.

Shaun you will have to make an input for Quant Bar as FXCM does not have MT4 servers on GMT time specifically. They are using a -2 offset now to use NY closing. Will you be sending an update to all your clients who bought it?

On QB Pro an almost $4K stop on $33K lot is not too good. You risk 10%?

All brokers use GMT offsets to remain in sync with NY time.

What are dynamic exits in QB Pro?

The market 'does stuff' which then triggers my exit rule.

On QB Pro an almost $4K stop on $33K lot is not too good. You risk 10%?

I risk every dime in the account every single month. The account will blow up at some point, and then I'll redeposit and keep trading. That's why I withdraw any profit at the end of the month.

How do I sync up Quant Bar? It had GMT hours it did not trade. Now FXCM server is not on GMT time but has a -2 offset. How do I set that in Quant Bar? It is messed up because of this.

I did not see an input in Quant Bar for GMT offset. How do users of Quant Bar do it? You did not provide the MQL4 file.
