I moved to GOMarkets from FXDD because they changed their max leverage allowed to 100:1 and also was going to disallow hedging. My live trading over 5 months (161 days) last year netted 13.3% gain with a max drawdown of $5,469 starting with a 0.01 lot size.

Server crash on 4/13 causing loss. Looking into why VPS restarted and how to do an alert when it happens.

Turns out it wasn't a server crash but a second VPS user logged on. Adding code to watch for a situation where several losses incured in a row and alert for restart.

Introduced a bug that I didn't find on demo testing causing large lots to open at the start of the week on 07/25/10. Was able to close orders with a few pips profit (luckily). Fixed the bug and continued trading.

I'm not doing demos to people for testing. I run several demo's myself and are posted on my website. And by the way, the drawdown calculation that MyFxBook uses is a percent of a percent. So when drawdown is 19% and my account is up 20%, that's actually a drawdown of 4% of the account and not 19%.

I had a breakthrough last weekend where I figured out to hold down the lot size to a manageable amount. They were getting to the point where the orders were on the verge of getting out of control. Since we are setting a price trap and price must break out of the trap in order to close our cycle of orders, and since we typically see 1 to 4 orders closed at once, I'm limiting the number of orders and then letting my checkpoint orders figure out how much we need to make when we get close to exiting the cycle. This also means that we can trade higher lot sizes and/or more pairs at once. I've tested on one account for a week and will be extending it to all my demo accounts this next week prior to putting it on my live account.

Never make adjustments to your trades when you are tired. Closed a couple of trades manually and wasn't paying enough attention and the EA closed the rest on it's own since it was doing what it was supposed to.😡 FRICK!

Even though I've lost profit due to the human element entering the trading, I've figured out some new settings that will keep lot sizes lower and also can trade larger initial lots that will recover the loss and also accelerate profit overall. Keep watch here.

New settings working nicely. I'm making profit 2.5 times faster and trades are about 80-85% winners requiring less multiple order groups to close and held for alot less time.
