I see quite a difference in lot sizes on your trades, is this because you have set the 5m and 15m charts to different risk settings? If so then which are trusting with the higher risk? I have noticed on my account that the 15m is losing so far.
Be afraid, very afraid?

Having had some time with this system, its now trading on my main account and doing quite well. I take profit myself and don't wait for the robot to let the winners go to SL. Sometimes I can't catch it but most of the time I usually know ahead of time when there is a large movement in the market. I find my profits to be much higher this way, even if I miss a few pips here and there. However, over time, you will still make a profit even with letting the bot take full control. Getting good entries is the hard part and this bot is extremely good at it.

Well the last 2 losses are about 1/3 of the account. It might require some optimization so it wont happen again.
I had similar loss with my Caesar system but was able to fully recover the loss so I wish you the same

You can run the bot at much lower risk for a much lower drawdown (and profit) by adjusting the lot size accordingly.

Will future update of the bot will be similar to how it is run on tickmill account. Seems like the stop loss and target profit on that account works even better.

I had a good win with the trades from yesterday because I make sure to take profit when I'm in profit. Once I see the market forming a bottom, I close all or almost all the bot trades. Yes, I will miss some of the really large moves but I miss most of these moves where it was in profit and then moved out.

I agree that the entries this EA provides is nothing short of impressive. World class indeed. However, it sometime gives up very good profits in the quest for more profits and ended up in the red. I would suggest that Mr Goldstein, the creator of this great EA to update this EA to allow users (with smaller risk appetite) an alternative option for a less aggressive Take-Profit strategy in order to secure more but smaller wins. In any case, I would certainly recommend the Inertia Trader.

Looking at the growth graph it looks like it's hitting support and poised for a big move up 😁
Seriously though, I do believe that the system is a good system. Just need to monitor a little, take profit when you have it, and it's great. The last trades with the eurusd sat there in profit for hours building a base of support around 1.1875 Yes, the bot should be able to take the profit on its own but if your running this system on real $, you need to know how it works take profit when it's on the table.
Side note, I do see a good short opportunity with the eurusd this week for a retracement...

It can look like it is failing because it uses very high leverage. Expect 75% drawdown to make 1000% ROI.

It is just a normal part of big risk big variance. It will continue to growth, the system is working fine.

However it might sound now, the EA is not failing. If you watch its backtests when they are running, you will see such drops are in fact very common, given the risk level and the leverage used. Something that has worked for years won't fail so easily no matter how random the Forex market is. As a matter of fact, the market's randomness is what ensures this strategy's success in the long run.

Yeah there's insufficient evidence to suggest that the EA is failing, it's just on very high leverage and doesn't have a smooth R^2 growth curve or Sharpe ratio. IF you look at the previous forward-test periods (May 2, 2016 to March 10, 2017) you would be saying the same thing.

I just finished the book fooled by randomness and I have to agreed jake is right. A 50% winrate is as random as it get. Smooth grow curve are for turkey, get fed all year just to die on thanks giving. If you want smooth growth curve, get a martingale bot, or ask me for one :).

I actually run test backtest inertia 15 mins from 2001-2017 oct at 0.20 lot, it has a relative drawdown of 83% somewhere in 2004. Eventually recover and making new high.
