very interesting results. you meant you use 6x starting martingal level? waiting for the more demo results.
by the way, for 6x cacther, you will continue to see the long term performance?


The default settings for MT4i's Tradecopier Personal always set Equity to be proportional between
Sender and Receiver. So, it's easy to calculate what a 1X and 3X appear as, Lot-size on the Receiver (Catcher)
Then set one variable on the Receiver side: 'IgnoreLotsSmallerThan', so that only 6X, 9X, 12X, etc... get placed.
6X Catcher has been stopped forever now - mission accomplished.

HI Drew, excellent work!

how did you decide the lots size in your catcher account? for 6x level, your 2M account traded at 6 standard lots, but your 6x catcher use 0.45lot size for your G/U pair on the 12 July. how to decide this risk rule? thanks!


50000/2000000 = 0.025, x 6 lots = 0.15, set Risk @ 3.0 (in TradeCopier Receiver settings), gives 0.45 as
what 'appears' at the doorstep on the Receiver. Next size down is 3X and shows up as 0.225 with this config.
So, because Equity will vary, I set the variable called 'IgnoreLotsSmallerThan' as halfway between, 0.3375.

One has to monitor that 'Ignore...' variable as Equity shrinks and grows, unfortunately, else wrong orders are let in
or even missed entirely.

Enjoy...

I have changed the password and remove MT4 from VPS, unfortunately, yesterday, one IP still log in my account during my online support with broker. broker notice. this IP is abnormal IP from myfxbook.com after I track IP address (184.154.132.102 ), hostname:general2.myfxbook.com

https://www.ip-tracker.org/locator/ip-lookup.php?ip=184.154.132.102

I am not sure why some people from myfxbook.com can log in my account even I have uninstalled MT4 from VPS (that means the update EA from myfxbook.com has been stopped). Even Update EA still there, there is right for myfxbook.com to log in my account?

So I removed all account connection between myfxbook and MT4.

I am still investigating this issue with broker, TOMs EA and VPS, if you have any suggestion will be very helpful.


@craneliu - that is the verification system which is accessing your account on a regular basis to validate the results. If you wish to stop it, you can change the investor password.

@Ethan - Thanks for the followup! I thought that this was the case. Investors can't change anything on the account though, so that's not the problem.

As a part of TEA helpdesk I'm trying to help Craneliu with this case, and after reply we've got from broker I can only presume that either VPS or home PC security was compromised at some point

#1 all trades (including suspicious) were placed from the VPS
#2 'suspicious' trades haven't had magic number, which is must for our automated strategy, so 9 out of 10 that trades were manual
#3 mismatch in comment section in addition to absence of magic number

VPS itself could be compromised only on a side of admin panel database, since windows has pretty strong front end encryption. It's much simplier to get access to the whole admin panel with pwd and or option to reset one, rather than break in individual container. So if something like this took place - then clients would definitely heard something about that. Plus in that case I would have gone for credit card info, rather than forex trading accounts

This brings us to home PC, which is used to access the VPS, and 99% of the time has VPS pwd saved up, here we have a lot of options - starting from rootkits, ending with dishonest roommate

Anyhow, case is still open and we'll post some details here as the progress goes

it is interesting, general2.myfxbook.com is the host name of myfxbook.com or it is another hostname? myfxbook.com staff can answer it?

Hi everyone (that cares..;). One of my experiments of ignoring all orders smaller
than 6X has just completed. I consider complete when the account balance doubles.

I used a $2,000,000 'Pitcher' account running Tom's EA and 4 'Catcher'
accounts of $50K each. The 6X Catcher doubled to $100K after 6 weeks.
3X and 12X are behind and still growing. 9X's MT4 or TradeCopier database
got corrupt and crashes immediately after launch - but not before it made it
to $89K from $50K. I'll post the others when/if they complete...

Here are the links:

6X Catcher - https://www.myfxbook.com/members/ForexCuredotcom/50k-6x-catcher/645557

Hope this helps for your research, as a pretty good, albeit Demo, forward test.

Hi ALL, Hi Drew,

I'm a Tom Enthusiast.
I've been testing this EA over and over, alone and with other traders on a skype group, since the begin of the year.
I've been reading Tons of forums thread about Tom, trying to find a way to grow the account steadiy without blowing it each time Bernanke/Draghi would open their mouth.
All members in the group including me have seen in TOM a way to earn money from forex, in these times where finding a job is a luxury.

BUT, we've blown so many demos (and live account) with it, that we are about to loose faith.

THEN, lately I've been reading your thread here.
You guys are great and are very much like us : Trying a find a way with TOM.

SO, I'd have 2 questions for you guys, if you'll allow me :
- Have you found that way of earning steaDo you still

' EDIT : Sorry, hit a key combination that sent the post by mistake ! '

- Have you found that way of earning steadily with TOM without blowing the account at the end ? If not, do you still believe in it ?
- More specifically to DREW : your Pitcher/Catcher experiment is very impressive. I admire the inventivity. Do you believe that this would be applicable to a 10k live account and would lead to use TOM more securely, avoiding account blowing and growing our bucks ?

I will appreciate very much you time, as I see your topic and your approach as the last hope before I stop using and testing this EA that was VERY promising at the beginning.

Y'All Take care !

I have been on the profitability quest for a long time, and I have found a very likely solution. https://www.myfxbook.com/members/InfinityPhi/structure-combo/693465
It is a portfolio of systems/currencies that actually trade true market structure with some unique algos, not lagging indicators. I will be using this system when it is available.

Make losses, but always come out a winner at the end.

I appreciate your answer. I'll take a look at it.

Should I understand you've given up on TOM's EA ?
