My trades were closed for a small profit, just little bit above break even, but official link of sPhantom from myfxbook still have the trades open. I have the Hide_TP_SL=true, maybe this was the reason.

HAHA, sPhantom closed both at exactly break even (at least for my account) :).

Happy with the result, could be worse.

I user RoboForex ECN Pro account - great conditions.

And I'm not affiliated with them :) (I know I just created my account today, thanks for reminding me. People have to start posting from somewhere :) ).

Regards,
Alex :)

wow, not so hot today...

wait and see before complaining...
and again... if you are so smart to know the trade was opened in the wrong direction... why did you need an EA?

You got the wrong guy.

I said 'not so hot' and it wasn't so hot.

It was someone else a few posts ago who said it was in the wrong direction. I have no such knowledge. EURUSD H1 looks like an inscrutable dog's breakfast to me.

Well, the thing is that whenever SPhantom opens 2 trades they end up being one bad and one good. My account with IBFX US only opens 1 trade and it ends up being the bad one. Where the hell can I get a US broker that is compatible with this EA? Anybody with a US account had both trades executed succesfully?

It would be nice if sPhantom would share some insight about the recent trade. I'm fairly new to forex and trade myself only on demo account. Thats why I use sPhantom while learning and been very happy with my decision. Few things I've noticed today while looking at the charts (see attached):

Market tested 38.2% Fibbonaci resistance level which held and later on formed a bearish hammer. From my personal knowledge this candle stick signals to short your positions. Next candle stick moved rapidly towards resistance and once hit a trade was opened. Most of the time rapid movement signals a spike. Cause at that time we knew already that resistance held the first time.

Please do not get me in a wrong way. I'm just trying to understand why bearish hammer was ignored and 38.2% fibbonaci level not taken in to consideration.

I have to say well guessed when to close both trades sPhantom!

You can only use 10% risk with IBFX US the leverage is 1:50 so it won't open the trade because not enough money to

Hi Team,

First time poster.. Thought its about time we had a chat about brokers.. Is anyone monitoring the open/close prices of the trades? I am using the same broker as Sphantom and prices are off by up to 2 pips.. VPS is with CNS and has low latency.

I see a few of us experienced a small loss today.. mine is solely due to late opening and closing short of the TP

any other comments? anyone make small profit today?

Nick


I am using FXCM, first position open price slightly far away, but 2nd position open price is better than sphantom. However, i took a small loss, for the first time i put this EA goes LIVE, because it works well since had forward test it for quite some time.

Remember, despite the variable being call risk percent, it is not. With a setting of 10 you have 35% of your balance exposed according to the vendor.

@borncorp try FinxFX. I believe they open accounts for US citizens. They do charge a commission on each trade of $7 per standard lot.
