Notes for anyone comming across this testing. this account was set up to test multiple signalers from https://www.fexea.com
Easist way to filter for one EA is to do a custom Analysis for comment. search for one of the following:
Henkoljei 155 (Removed 10th of Nov. This EA will never succeed. see notes)
All trades magic numers are named but there are a lot so that might not help. it seems fexea produces a new magic number for each system each day.
Notes: Fexea sends signlas from trader systems to us users via their custom EA. In testing I have found this causes lag from trader to client of anywhere up to 4 minutes. For a lot of the Fexea Systems this makes the the system a complete waste of time. Good example is Henkoljei 155 which is a scalper that has very short trades of a few seconds. Once those trades are delayed through Fexea the result is completly different. Thus a lot of the systems look good on the Fexea site but will never be good in practice.
How much this lag affects the other systems remains to be seen. I'll do an analysis in a month when the test is over
I have a number of old machines i dont use any more. so: 1. install Windows and metatrader and nothing else 2. connect to internet. preferably strait into the DSL modem via an ethernet cable (more reliable than wireless) 3. Done. dedicated trader desktop. it doesnt even need a momitor an keyboard. Just use remote desktop.
here is how i set each EA: (note i would probaly set it different for live trading) Risk Multiper = default (1.0) SL = as recomended on the system page on the Fexea site. Fixed lot = default (i.e not used)
I set it like this so i could see how each system manages risk. i.e you can see that some systems set larger lot sizes then others. Personally, For live trading i wouldnt trust what some far off trader i will never meet thinks is sutible risk. I would calculate how much i'm ok with losing based on the default stop loss and calculate a fixed lot size based on that.
Thats just my though though. be interested on hearing others thoughts on this.
