Multiple systems opposite direction

Hi community!

I just set up a demo account and figured out, that multiple systems trade the same underlying in opposite directions.
Like System 1 is EURUSD Long, System 2 is EURUSD short. How would that be managed on a live account?

Thanks for your help.

Just open a demo account on any non US MT broker and do the trades. You end up hedged. No risk, no profit, just the loss of the cost of opening two positions.

If you want to run the systems via EA just magic number the trades. There's really no limit to how many systems you can run in a single account.

And it doesn't work. Instead of hedging what happens is you build up losing positions of both sides of the system. There are quicker ways to lose money in fx, but not many.

Just set the ea on correlation pairs or negative and set one to buy and the other to sell only if you wanna demo test. I use it.. see my most recent demo chart. Im gridding both directions

Correlations fail, all the time.

Im using negative correlated pairs. Plus a third EA to manage my profits and it has a SL set that works great. Its a fun 5k demo start up.

Eur/usd versus USD/Jpy Im using my Own home built smart gridder . FIFO compliant

Yes, gridders are dangerous but fun tgo observe and set up. I have my own EA set file and a third EA for managing and resetting both EAs. GOing to be a fun demo ride.

you can hedge async, like eu buy 1 (neg. swap), eu sell >1.xx, if the eu drops, you win, if eu rise you can build a grid, open martingale or similar, depending on your strategy and equity

so if you dont know, every system is dangerous, if you adv. knowledge, you can go with grids, martingale and so on...big boys doing the same..
