It does use martingale after 8 open orders. A series of orders is limited to 11. After 11 orders, if the conditions are right, it will begging a new series of orders but resetting the martingale factor. A hidden stoploss is triggered if the drawdown reaches a predetermined amount of money, closing a certain percentage of open trades. Profit in pips is positive so the strategy would still be profitable without using martingale.

I've also made the account info public here in myfxbook.com
Ok, that might be a good thing to let people know as well :) It would deter me from investing, as I've seen it crash two demo accounts of my own :( It works well for a while, but eventually it will get stuck in a trend and take an EP hit. So, be warned and careful :)
How did that happen? Under normal conditions it should never crash an account. The drawdown protection should kick in and close some losing trades long before you get a margin call. I've seen that happen in backtests a few times and the account always managed to get back in profit after a while.
I've used other grid trading EAs, including Blessing and Forex Hacked, and while these can work long term IF you set clear stops and use proper money management, I find GMU to be the safest I've seen so far.
Nah, I don't mean to critizise, you might do fine for a long time, but it's just too risky for my appetite. I've found better things, and will not mess with this type of system ever again. I used default settings btw.
No worries, all comments are welcome. I didn't mean to say you did something wrong, I know the EA has had its share of bugs and a couple still don't seem to have been resolved. I'm used to grid systems and it's not always easy to watch them trade but it helps if you understand how a determined EA is supposed to handle the trades, and once you accept that a grid strategy will eventually cause large drawdown periods all you really have to focus on is checking if the EA is running correctly and let it do its thing.
