Problem with FXCM is that the EA only reacts to the Chart pricing whhich has a much wider spread than the market watch spread.
The say they will fix it but it seems that they are in no hurry to do it and it can't be a big deal.


For others wondering about this, I address this question about MT4 charts in detail in my first post on page 1 of this contest discussion thread: https://www.myfxbook.com/community/contests/forex-contest/840323,1

FXCM is working on a solution, however, it will not be available before the end of this contest.

Has anyone been able to place limits or stop loss on trades placed? I keep getting an error, I don't understand why...


There is no reason why you should not be able to set stop losses on your trades. What error message are you getting?

Mr Jason Rogers,

Thank you for your answers. However, do you know that myfxbook's track records can be completely hacked and modified? It's very simple, modifying the ftp file of MT4 which is linked to the myfxbook server updated every now and then. In other words, I can put 50000 lots on 1 trade if I wish, this will be displayed on the myfxbook, as well as the result and myfxbook will replicate this impact on the charts and numbers. But Mr Jason, do you allow 50000 lots at once on a trade? I believe the limit is 50 or 100 in general for any forex broker on 1 trade at a time. I know this because I have done it. I can actually even change the name of my trade with whatever I want and even add a photo in the trade history.. ridiculous.

Just to let you know that, if you look at the contest, especially the top accounts, questions exists. So, EA's should be permitted but myfxbook first but you too should as a partner make sure that the myfxbook third party software and internet platform are secure and represent the truth and are not being easily hacked.

You wouldn't want to give free gifts or money to losers right... ? ;)

That is incorrect. I am using EA on FXCM and it definitely uses the Market Watch prices, completely ignoring the chart prices.

Man I totally Agree 10 Billion percent. EAs should be in EA contest. Humans should be in human contest. EAs dont go to bed eat, sleep or have sex which is to say we do other things besides trading. Ea is an octupus which have a million eyess to look at a million different currencys. This mixing of manual and EA is a serious blunder.



Dear Competitors;

I'm sorry to rudeness, but I have to say something that I consider important to everyone.

I am little worried if I'll win the game or not!

I'm here to Assess my limitations and my mistakes.

I'm testing various EAs to see if it works in a real environment.

If the Broker is bad or the platform does not work right. What interests me is if my EA works in various conditions.

Missing or hitting ... always learn more.

Health Peace to All!

Hi Tony
Please advise how I can know or test which pricing the EA is using.
Maybe it depends on how the EA code is written?
Rimantas at ea-coder.com says that he would not use any EA on a broker who is using different price feeds for the MW and the charts!

Put this code in a script and the drag the script onto your chart

PrintFormat('HEY! bid=%f ask=%f spread=%f',bid,ask,ask-bid);

Then check your log for a message with the word HEY

People act like their lives are depending on the outcome of this contest. I don't understand this at all. Contests are for fun and to see how your strategy compares with others.

Thank you for sharing your concerns. If you feel the Myfxbook site has been hacked, please post a link showing an example of this, so it can be investigated.
