@thriftysigns how much DD do you saw in this 1 or 2 downtimes?
I set the Risk to .05 and ran the test again.
From 1-1-15 to 4-7-16, it did very well with a max of 27.47% DD.
1-1-14 to 12-31-14 was not good with a DD of 49% and only a 1.34 Profit Factor
In 2013 the account is totally blown on 7/11/13
I analysed all myfxbooks of users here with the EA today.
The backtest of alex shows a risk factor of 0.07 with 97$ deposit. 7 times higher than his recommendations of 0.01 per 100$.
Perhaps he does it because he can't adjust the riskfactor inbetween the test when the balance is rising.
As well the RUB account started with 2025RUB that's about 30USD with a risk factor of 0.01.
So he is about 3 times up his recommendations. (30x3 = 90$ so the risk factor would be 0.03)
But later he isn't changing his lot size therefore the percentage gain of eacht week will be getting smaller.
(For those who asked why it isn't going in the same pace as before.)@thriftysigns
the second question is, when you backtested, if the drawdown happened because of no possibility to adjust GMToffSet?
First I wanted to set the riskfactor a little bit higher like in the backtest, but the safest ways are apparently the recommendations of alex, 0.01 lot per 100$.
For your exitplan to double until the DD is cleaned, there will be always a risk, only future can tell.
So better running at recommendations, it will be slower for sure but after time the possibility is higher that you can keep the profits.
Fingers crossed that THIS could be the EA we'll ever need!
