This is a live account running the Crescendo EA on the standard (modest) settings. The account is running 24/7 on a VPN with an Alpari UK account

I have put some protection in place by setting a MAXIMUM of 25% drawdown in the event of a 'black swan event'.

There are a few critics of this system and I would appreciate it if negative opinions are posted elsewhere. I am happy to let the EA run and allow it to be judged on live perfomance.

Let's see how it goes 😄

Are you running this system on demo with another broker?

Hi cbrecruit1

No. This is the only account I have running this EA?

Why do you ask? 😄

Graham,
thanks for the live account especially the full access to look at history etc I hate it when people lock half the stuff and think what is the point showing it if your going to hide all the data...
Anyway, can I ask if you have it set on 12hr trading as in takes one trade every 12hrs and if so what time does this generally occur on your platform?
I have bought this too and just downloaded the upgrade to 1.1 version but since using this it has crashed my meta trader a couple of times last week on demo account and I think this is happening when it has opened 2 trades same pair and is trying to close them both when its acheived its target profit target as a sum of both the trades, have you had any on these problems?
Can I ask if you have also adjusted the profit target to take account of using £ instead of $ I know its not in the manual but read about it on thier website?

You also mention that you have adjusted the DD to 25%, for black swan events, I think its normally set at 30% how did you change this setting?

My leverage is 1:500 do you think it will make any difference?

Sorry about all the questions but I will be going live next week too and will put mine on here too as I am impressed so far with the demo.

I note you have 4 trades open on £/JPY, the most I have ever seen opened is 2 on either pairs, could you explain how that might of occured?

Thanks again

Phil

Hi Phil

Thanks for the post. These are my current settings:

Initial Balance: 1,000 (this NOT adjusted for £)
Order Stop: 60
Target Profit: 2.53 (this is adjusted for £)
Frequency: 4 (every 12 hours which is 11am/pm on Alpari UK at the moment due to BST)
Manual Trend: False
Trend Derecttion: 0
Lot Size: 0.01
Risk Percent: 1.0
Max Total DD: 25.0 (=25% of £1,000 (initial Balance))
Slippage: 5.0

I am currently running the original v1.0 of the software for 2 reasons.
1. The main issues that people seen to be ahving are on accounts that suffixes on the PAIR names. I am running the EA on the same Broker as Andrea and therefore do not anticipate any issues.
2. I have open trades that are currently in a loss and I do not want to close them and I d not want to risk upgrading with the trades open, just incase v1.1 does not pick up on the open trades and deal with them properly.

I will wait for the trades to close (hopefully in profit 😄) and upgrade to v1.2 once it has been tested. I like the idea of v1.2 using compounding 😄

I am not entirely sure why there are 4 trades on the £/JPY but having read the manual and Andrea's comments on the blog https://www.forexcrescendo.com/blog/ I am happy that it is working correctly. See page 5 of the user manual for an explanation of when trades are opened.

The thing I like is that it will close ALL of the orders on a particular pair, once it has reached the Target_Profit between ALL of the open trades. So the price on £/JPY does not have to rise as high as 132.577 in order to close the 4 trades. Between them they need to make a nett gain of £2.53 (plus spread, swap and slippage)

I am a great believer of 'if it aint broke, don't fix it' So I will not be messing with my setings. I am happy to let let it run for a few weeks to see waht it can do 😄

I look forward to seeing your live account when you decide to take the plunge. Please send me a link and details of your settings?

Happy Trading 😄

Graham
