Welcome to the club. I have had sPhantom for one month, and very satisfied with 22% gain. All of your settings seem to be spot on. The only problem I was having was it would open a trade immediately after closing. The trade would last only a few seconds, then close, usually at a very small loss. After emailing support, they suggested setting HIDE_SL_TP to true. Since then, no problems. Heres what else: Bring your chart history up to date, and your bars on chart up to date. Seems to run a little better with history current. In regards to leverage, I guess it depends on your risk aversion. Mine is set to 1:200 on a $1000 acct. to avoid a margin call if the situation goes really bad. Although the vendor uses higher risk, they only risk $100 (the initial deposit). So far, the EA has worked like a charm. I also use VPS because I don't trust my internet connection. My broker provides it for free with a $1000 balance. The risk percent seems fine. As you use it and trust it more, you can increase it, since it is not an indicator of how much of a percentage you are risking, but tells the EA the lot sizes. With a setting of 10, on your balance, I believe it will open lot sizes of .065 or in that area ( .01 per $100 ). Mine is 15, and my SL is set to 150, as opposed to the default 200. If you set yours to 20, your lot sizes will be around .12 which for me would be a little too high. And I always withdraw the profits regularly, once every week or two. In one month, my withdrawls have been over $200. Well enjoy. My fxbook page is: sphantom-Anubis2.😄
