I started out doing tick, but it was horribly slow. So I tried control points, and I noticed there was virtually zero difference in the resultant trades. So...here are tests for the 4 primary currencies, using the default settings.....except lot size. I used fixed 0.01 lot. I had intended to run them on $1000, but forgot to change it. So they are all on $10k.
My personal thoughts--- I believe the system has potential. It does NOT handle sudden, major shifts in the trend well at all. Since the market spends most of its time in ranges, this may be overcome. I have it running on demo currently while I analyze the backtests in more detail.
Thanks for all this fughe.
I think Doug responded once to me by email that is does 'micro trend reversals' as its modus-operandi. Perhaps as you say about larger shifts in trend not doing good is why July '14 on his myfxbook live is a big dd?
My smartphone file-expert couldn't open the files inside the zip and its not easy to move them to my server from it, could you please tell us the gain and dd results relative to MM% for each pair in words? Please. I can wait 'til you finish your full analysis though. Good work!
PS folks. Been realizing how one could attract so much attention as in the case of this EA. Just run a flock of them and keep the one that takes off w/o blowing up for a myfxbook hookup !!! Lol.
So we're doing a good thing here folks with our own runs hooked to myfxbook and critical analysis!
don't believe 99.9% of the EA e-ads out there my friends!
