I notice on live test just running GB not EUR, any particular reason? Is it because of lower drawdown in demo than Eur which was near 30%? Looks very promising EA in this volatile market.

Dear Ozzie Matt, we run only the GBPUSD on the real account because of its balance. We do not want to increase the risk by trading 2 pairs and that's why we chose the base pair of Volatility Factor EA (GBPUSD).

Dear rob559, there are plenty of changes on the latest version compared to the original one. Firstly, the stop loss levels have been reduced a lot - they are close to 50 pips now, which leads to a much lower drawdown. Furthermore, the trading logic of the EA has also been optimized, as well as the settings.

I noticed you used a custom start date for the graph, so I analysed the entire history and found that for a while it was slowly growing and there were a few big 'hits' which cut the balance down.

1. Please explain what happened here to cause such losses.

2. How have you 'fixed' this account so it will not repeat these losses in future?

Your time and response is much appreciated! 😁

I can just tell you, stay away from this kind of EA, never buy a system with this short real trading. I lost a lot of money too, because of this fraud. I just tell you! Now one sales a good system, why should he? The owner just makes money with selling the product, but will never trade with big money.

yes and more drops now too. I noticed after the last set of drops in July 11th, the system gradually kept increasing lot sizes to recover and kept trading in the same direction, is this Martingale? lot sizes went from 0.1 to 0.2 to 0.3 then 0.4 I notice with the last set of bad trades lot sizes are 0.1 will be interesting to see if the lot sizes creep up again to recover...
