I have a quick look at your link to myfxbook and it is obvious from the size of the trades, compared to the account balance, that you are not using the default settings. You have suffered some heavy losses on the GBPJPY but then you have been opening trades of 0.1 lots ???
I have resisited the themptation to upgrade to v1.1 until the GBPJPY trades have come back into profit. I have heard that some people who upgraded to v1.1 whilst still having open orders, suffered losses because the new version Closed all of the open trades!!
Fire off an email to Crescendo support. I am sure thay can answer your questions.
Graham, Your account DD is over 50% did you set it higher (than 30%) so the trades did not close out? On the LIVE account on the BLOG they had the trades close and took the loss. Why did your account not do that?
I must have been looking at DD of another EA I am studing. Sorry for the confusion. I have ran the Cresendo EA and watched it work. It took up a lot of resources on MT4 and crashed a few time. I am watching your account as well as the LIVE one on the Cresendo Blog. not running it anymore. Thanks for your LIVE account to watch and Keep up the good work! Greatest Success ***Dale***
Now that my GBPJPY trades have finally recovered and all trades have now closed I am supspending Crescendo until the new version 1.3 is released. I have transferred £500 to another Alari Live account in order to run a test on another product. You can follow the successof that here if you wish:
hi See its still doing well, I have been trialing the 1.3 and it works much better there are no rogue trades and it 1.2 use to crash my VPS every other day hence the rogue trades I think. for the last 12 or so days it didnt close any profit as it went into a draw down of 450 but that was on a 5k demo account it has now closed them all with the 20 profit. I let my VPs lapse recently think I will have to set another one up early next year when I return from vacation but I still think its quite expensive unless I use at least 2k as a starting balance.
Graham have you withdrawn cash again and did you reset to the new balance on this account, I notice on 12hrs on mine it trades less than the 1.2 that is with default settings as it cqame out of the box has anybody else noticed this too?
Just a quick update. Following the advice from Andrea on the forum. I have decide to rest Crescendo during December until mid January when the voulumes in the markets pick up. I was waiting for the GBY/JPY basket to close in profit before stopping it completely. This has now closed today 😁
I have made a withdrawal/transfer to another live account I have running which places trades based on the account size (unlike Crescendo that places a set size). I will be reducing the balance of my Crescendo account to £500 and will probably use it to test the new LEO EA that everyone is talking about (I am still not sure if it is just the usual hype with a different twist. Only time will tell). I did not reset the balance of my Crescendo account because the EA only needs $1,000 minimum which is about £680.
Quick update: I am waiting for Andrea (developer of Crescendo) to release a revised version of Crescendo which will address an issue with the Trend Finding code. I have not had an issue with it myself but feel it best to wait for the new release.
