I see, so you are full auto mode now. I do not think anyone can reverse engineer what you conjured up there :)
From what Market Wizards were telling it is exits that make money. entries are not that important.





Very good point here I think everyone needs to realize, you CAN have a completely 100% random entry and still be profitable long term, it is the exit that which will make you a profit or not.

You have 2 very fresh accounts with small profit and 1 negative account. Everything is hidden.
There is no way this could attract investors


@togr If you look a bit back into this thread you will see, I mentioned that I purposely set to private to prevent malicious activity but would gladly open for a short period for anybody interested. Though, many investors will be satisfied with the 'advanced statistics'.

As for the negative account, random mistakes. First there was an incident where my notebook's (very old)cpu was not powerful enough to run 3 terminals - I have moved it to my I7 desktop, which is more than capable.
Then stupid me, entered trades on the desktop which defaulted to the .10 lot size, not the .01 I wanted and I quickly closed them, for a loss. But I see this as ironing out the wrinkles, I could have just started a new account, Instead I reimbursed my client for the money he lost and kept the old account running. But, please, I am not trying to make excuses for these mistakes, they happened and I learned from them.
I now have a 7% loss to work away first, but am not phased as this should take a month maybe two.
This will probably scare investors away, but once that client account is in the green, my account will not be so 'fresh' anymore and I will then attract investors.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far..Go together..

Tough love then..
They like, they try..They no like..They no try as easy and simple as that.

My view on things changed a bit since a few weeks ago. At first I demo-ed this system then went live a couple of months ago, changed things a bit (hence the custom starting date) At first I was eager to sign investors up. I was even willing to give this EA away for anybody who would subscribe. The idea then was to 'sell' signals for $10 per month. Aagh, it sounds so newbie-ish.

Remember this guy (attached) It's me...

Then I came to the realization that...As my system is, it will eventually attract investors by it's performance. Yes, I have a negative account, but I will rather work my way out of it than starting over.. It was not a 'trading system' error, it was other things.

In Forex you don't need investors having a good performing method of trading.
You can make it on your own !
It will just take a little longer for you to get there, that's it.

Complexity is expensive, inefficient, and ineffective > Crocodile trading

I cannot believe someone would make such a dumb statement..
It is common knowledge that there are actually lots of people that do not want to be traders, but investors rather. They do not want to go through years of looking for a system, rent a VPS and have to go through all the hassle, and I for one can respect that.

I pose this question to you : If a computer business is very good at repairing computers (what I do actually) and your computer has problems, would you take your computer to them and pay $50 to have it repaired, or spend $1000 to learn how to do it and run the risk of making things worse.

Oh, I must also answer the garbage you posted on my feed. Please, this is not an empty billboard for you to scribble your non-sense on. Another example, simplified so even toddlers can also understand.. Say there is a shop who sells chips for $5 a packet..
I also have a shop and sell my chips for $7 a packet. It is up to the customer if he wants it or not.
Yes, I can source cheaper bags of potatoes and sell for even $4 a pack, but let's say I believe in quality above quantity, my choice isn't it. I know my chips are more expensive (my trading makes far less %) but I know they are not mass produced, they taste better and are healthier (low risk, stable return)

But once again, it is totally up to the consumer where he wants to buy. I am not in competition with the other shops.

It is great to have great system,
It is great to have investors
But you have to be able to sustain burden of trading a huge pile of money

Some fund managers that implement a variation of the system I use, manage millions. Look up some of these names names David Harding; Bill Dunn; John W. Henry; Ed Seykota; Keith Campbell and Jerry Parker. All very successful fund managers.
So the more money there is, the more weight a 3-15% ROI has.

Did I write there are no investors looking for good performing traders ?????
Read my comment agan, 'follower'.
You are the one talking nonsense here.
And by the way, your performance is bad. You need to practice some more.
