Oh well. Another transaction at 8.1pips with XM.com

I will confirm my switch next week to HotForex.
Anyone has tried them?


Exactly 10 for me, minus one pip for commission. I have used hotforex a year ago. They are a good broker. But, I prefer FxPrimus.

Hi Guys,

I bought this EA a few weeks ago and I have an issue with risk percentage change(lots). I can't change it as everytime I do that and press OK, when I open that settings window again it remains the same. Contacted both sphantom services and IBFX, none of them could help. Maybe somebody have any ideas?

Thanks

Actually the price (Bid and ask) for every broker is not exactly the same, as you can open up few broker and compare the LIVE price. They are slightly different due to spread and speed. So some of us might not have the same result. I have asked sphantom to close the price slightly more a few pips, so our close price would have slightly better gain.


And I ask now, here, sphantom to not change something which is working. If Darren likes more money, he can increase the risk for himself, not to increase the risk for everybody by changing the EA.

Regards.


What i mean is if sphantom does not to change the main core of this EA, but still able to achieve the good result, then it would be great to close slightly a few pips lately.

@ProActiveT: in 2 months using Hotforex FixAccount and their VPS never had problems. Only 1 time I got less than 10 pips, otherwise always 10.0 pips, like a swiss clock.

@Don_P: change the settings NOT in the left window list but clicking the right button on the graph, then select expert and change your settings.

Dont break whats not broken ...
Sooo, a system with a rr of 1:25, only about 125 trades so far and a sl which blows your acc if you have the same settings as the vendor is good? Even worse you'll never see the sl getting hit because the sl is set at 140%+ drawdown!
You may also notice that they blew up acc's in the past and then just stopped any service - came back with a new name and slightly modified system.
Yeah im fine with that, as long as it makes money :P


Finally someone on my wavelength, actually 1:25 is generous, you're not taking into account the 2nd trade. I'm curious to set the sl/tp and 2nd trade management of the many EAs I've made to these figures to see if they outperform phantom.

Help a dumb new guy... how does one 'turn off the automation'?



willgart posted:well... stop the EA... but you will increase the risk!!!

last week sphantom close the trades in break even, which was a good decision, if you stop the EA you will not receive these safe close signals... and you can be in big trouble!!!


OK, but I would add the MM strategy I have been using on my other trades: set SL at previous swing and set TS==SL. No TP.

Always build on what ain't broken and improve it


"Press On" has solved and will always solve, the problems of the Human Race

Hi Don,
what is the value you trying to enter?
most probably this value is defined as a real value on the EA code. try to enter 10.0 or 30.0 and it should work
