Re: losing trade on 5/23:
I happen across my mt4 and ran my back-tester to see what it said about this trade that was open on this date. It showed that it shoulde closed the trade in live but it didn't. Apparently things can be off by a teenie tick/pip so as to make a difference between live & test results. Seeing trade going south on me I felt 'better close it, take some loss now instead of bigger one later'. Interesting thing though is that quote did eventually move in direction that would've surely closed it 'in the black', meaning the optimization parameters found gave story of solid trade afterall. Just to let anyone know the occurence here that that loser wasn't really a loser fundamentally.
5 months of 15min eurusd collected in my history section so far. Things looking up.
I'm also collecting ecn Finfx history for future optimizing purpose (during my Megadroid running there) should things still look hot to go there with the fatter$ money using Forexacion.
Thx

Ok, 6/19/11 found good optimization point with only 3 loser trades throughout almost 6 months of 15min back data. So pinned start date to 6/20 since I have first puny trade today 6/21.
Thx

There was steep fall on eurusd resulting in a loss so bad coincidence that I get good optimization point but as I re-pin to re-start this happens, so in hopes to give EA good initial run I re-pin as soon as ok next trade occurs.

Found I am back to zero losers optimization but at 10% risk instead of 20%, dd comes out at around that too, so after a trade on 6/27 wanted to re-pin to 6/26 or 6/25 to be past 6/24 loser but system here at myfxbook don't like selections around weekend so may have to wait for another 1st trade by these new presets to select date from a then wider break in time. Btw the gain is 100% in 6mo.
Thx.

Ok! Took awhile but on this Wedn 6th July a tiny trade occured so was able to pin start date to 7/4/11.
As said in previous post its optimization point where there are no losers over last 6 months. If a loser occurs someday then it only take on average 2 trades to make up for it (average win size trades and using risk set to 10%). Trades occur on average once each week, last one before this one was on june 17th so talking 'on average'.
OK folks, mt4 maintiaining in collecting 15mins and knock-on-wood all can continue forward well from here.
Truly,
Jerry
