Title: Smart Forex Expert Signal / MAM
Post by: Jimmy on August 10, 2019, 01:40:32 AM
Hi guys,

I am Jimmy and I have been a loyal customer of SFE EAs since 2016. You guys may have seen me on Donna Forex and Forexsignals forums in the past few years.

Overall I have made A$260K so far with the SFE EAs (please see the photo attached). The drawdown may seem scary but that's because I withdraw profits regularly and only leave the amount that is required to cover the margin - there is no use leaving cash in my Forex account when I can put them in the bank to offset my mortgage! After all it's the profit in $$$ that counts, not the gain % which can be affected greatly by deposits and withdrawals.  ;)

I am glad to say that I will be updating my results regularly in this official forum from now on, and I can't wait to share the journey with you.

Welcome aboard!  :)

Post by: Jimmy on August 10, 2019, 01:59:58 AM
Weekly Result - 5th Aug 2019 to 9th Aug 2019

This week ended in a slight loss of -$6068.38 or -6.3% on my account.

The week started with SFE PA losing 9% in one day on Monday, but it rebounded strongly after 2 days with a gain of 7%.

SFE Attractor did well with the EURAUD sell trades and is still holding small sell postions into the weekend.

SFE NS had a very good week and is now back to all time equity high on the official account! (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/atractor/sfe-night-scalper/1393341)

SFE EU didn't do much this week as the price actions on EURUSD are still subdued.

I also did a few manual trades copying SFE Attractor in larger lot sizes, but lost some money buying GBPUSD. Well, better luck next time!

It is obvious that volatility is now picking up in the market, and I really expect SFE PA to make another large gain soon after so many months of stagnation. Can't wait for that big day to happen! ;D

Hi Joel,

It's my pleasure to be participating in your forum here. :)

I am very grateful for your EAs and it really gives me the hope that I may be able to retire within the next 10 years! ;D

I started trading Forex since 2010. I was also losing money in Forex like many others - until I came across SFE PA in 2016. Having studied casino betting systems when I was younger (and failed to beat the casino), your system stood out to me as having a clear statistical edge over the market with the large number of trades it takes, and the profits that go along with it. There is simply no other system on the market that I have seen that takes more than 20000 trades on their account and can still maintain a positive result of more than 400% gain after 4 years. ;)

Most of the vendors/signal providers are just out there to make money from subscribers. They make their growth curves look pretty, but their systems all eventually fail because their systems never had a long term statistical edge over the market to start with. However, a lot of people still fall for these grid/martingale systems because they believe the straight line growth will continue forever, and eventually they end up with the large final loss that wipes out their entire account. Then they look for the next system and lose again...I really hope this forum will help educate people and get them out of this vicious cycle.

I think people need to learn and accept the fact that in order to trade Forex successfully in the long term, they will need to stick to a strategy that has a long term statistical edge over the market. It's also important to always make the statistically correct decisions - even if that means closing a losing trade! Once you have that long term statistical edge, it doesn't matter if you trade with the same lot size, or use grid/martingale systems, you will still be able to make money in the long term as long as you can handle the drawdown. In the world of statistics and probability, the law of large numbers guarantees the long term profits. This is exactly how the casino makes money from gamblers - and Joel's EAs give that edge to the traders so we can make money from the market! :)

Yes Jimmy, your comments are very interesting, and I have to say that this world is very difficult for retail traders because obviously all the market is done for transfer his money to the strong hands.

Added to this, there is a lot of people trying to make profit with newbies traders selling anything, robots, indicators, courses, signals... which 99% of times are only scam (maybe not at legal level, but at moral level) because the sellers know these products don't works really.

Is know that there can't exist any guarentee even with good products, but at least me as SFE creator, be honest and transparent with our products is a must, If something is not good enough is not sold. With this forum, I hope we can help any retailer or newbie trader, sharing our knowledge with them. And also we can learn at same time with any interesting information posted.

Yes Joel you really are a genius to have created these EAs that have long term statistical edge over the market. :D

My account has made another $10K today thanks to the Gold buy trades by SFE Attractor! ;D

Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on August 15, 2019, 05:55:19 AM
Hi guys,

I have decided to retire my manual trading as I have now built up a decent account size to (hopefully) handle any DD that may come in the near future. All together I have made a bit over $65K with manual trading (see profit graph attached). Nevertheless, I have lost back about $6000 with my manual trades in the last 2 weeks...and while I may still be able to make a new high again, trading manually does put a bit more stress on me to check the account all the time and affecting my sleep.

So from now on my account will simply be called "SFE Combo" and trade the following strategies without manual intervention:
SFE Price Action - 3 Lots per trade
SFE Attractor - 2 Lots per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 1.5 Lots per trade
SFE EURUSD - same risk as official MQL5 account

I am still looking forward to the day when SFE Price Action reaches another equity high! :)

As you guys can see, all the SFE strategies were profitable this week and it was only my manual trades that gave a small loss. I believe the market has become more and more favourable for Joel's EAs and it should be just a matter of time that the official SFE PA account will make another new equity high. I am predicting that to happen before the end of this year but it could also happen a lot sooner that. ;)

Also just in case if you have missed a few posts from me, here are some of the important things that have happened to my account this week:

This week all the EAs ended in positive territory again like last week, which further confirms the observation that the current market is quite favourable for the EAs.

The week started a bit slow from Monday to Wednesday and SFE NS was able to grind some profits out of the market during those quiet days.

GBPUSD spiked up on Thursday on some Merkel comments and despite having a nice floating profit we only ended with a small profit after the price retraced.

Friday was where all the drama unfolded between Trump and China, and the EAs have managed to hold a healthy $16K floating profit going into the weekend. Trump announced more tariffs on China after the Forex market had closed, and on the XE Current Converter it showed that EURUSD price spiked to above 1.1200 shortly after the announcement, and is now sitting at around 1.1154 during market after hours. I believe there is a good prospect of a gap up in EURUSD at the open on Monday which will add more to the gains, unless something magical happens between Trump and China within the next 32 hours. :)

Also some other important announcements throughout the week:

Yes XE is useful but it can also make you feel very anxious when the price goes the wrong way over the weekend and you canít do anything about it :P

The price is sitting at 1.1188 now and I hope it will stay that way until the market opens. :)

Hi guys,

Just a heads up that I have sent in another withdrawal request for $10000 today, which should be processed by IC Markets in the next few hours.

My plan is to keep the account balance above $100K for now and waiting for the next big gain on SFE PA to happen. Once the official SFE PA account gets back to equity high then I will reduce the risk back to the recommended level. :)

-$319.33

This week's profits mostly came from the trades that were held over the last weekend. Even though EURUSD retraced completely and just made a fresh new multi-year low on Friday, the SFE EAs were able to close some profits early in the week, and we are now holding several EU shorts that look very promising going into next week. We did give back some profits in the middle of the week, but we will easily make another new equity high next week if the price of EU continues to drop. :)

This is where Joel's EAs are "smart" - they don't hold and pray, they will close trades and accept smaller profits or even losses when it's appropriate, and look for the next opportunity. On the other hand, trading systems that don't accept losses and keep opening trades in the same direction hoping for a reversal, are now in a bit of trouble (see the Frero system for example: https://www.myfxbook.com/en/members/wassel2017/frero/2406407)

The only significant losses came from SFE NS on Monday when the market opened with a big gap and prices extended further before retracing completely. Although it's a shame to see losses like that, it's just part of the game and I am sure SFE NS will make back those losses eventually.

August Monthly Review

So now August is behind us, and I am very happy to report that my account has made a whooping $58K for the month! :)

SFE Combo monthly profit:
(https://i.imgur.com/YIpaoBg.jpg)

And this is despite SFE PA and SFE EU just barely breaking even for the month!

SFE Price Action monthly growth:
(https://i.imgur.com/kvZeqx3.jpg)

SFE EURUSD monthly growth:
(https://i.imgur.com/UdwbD8U.jpg)

So the star performer really is SFE Attractor which has made another 6% in August on the official account, but with the way things are looking, I am sure SFE PA and SFE EU will catch up on the growth very soon. And when they do, the gains on my account will be massive! ;D

Looking ahead, it seems that 19th Sep will be the day where we will have the most high impact economic releases all within 24 hours. I can't wait to see what we will get on that day!

Announcements throughout the week:
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Attractor on September 01, 2019, 02:42:08 AM
about Frero system or similar systems, last months, near two years already, has been a big opportunity for this kind of systems which never closes a losing position. Yes they close single positions, but only closes all the opened positions when the balance of them is positive. These systems different variants, but in general they are grid systems in the sense that opens multiple positions when they falls in loses, a limited number obviously, trying to not fall in a margin call.

Is like a refined version of martingale systems, and while the average life of a martingale system, I think is strange that can go more far than some weeks, this grid systems can survive more until the Apocalypsy day.

Another famous systems of this kind is the ForexStay signals and EAs on mql5. Last week, the ForexStay main signal was at very few pips of the margin call, but a holly reverse at last moment did safe the account again for the moment. I remember forexstay signals wipe all his accounts one or two years ago, but now has returned with force.

The problem with these systems is that sometimes the creator of of the systems publishes the system as if can get this profit always and the risk is controlled. No doubt that in flat moments, grid systems can be a lot profitable, but the creator should inform to his users that at the first big movement in contrary direction the account is wiped. This means that when you use this systems, you have to witdhdraw the won money regularly, because soon or later all the balance will be lost.

For newbies, I will explain the trick to know if we are in front of this danger:   any account with a stats of profit factor above 3-4-5, and more this accounts with profit factors of 10 or more, are systems that only will end in a margin call, because this profit factor is the proof that the system don't accept close a losing position, so, if the trade don't change his strategy meanwhile, the account will broke at final. Don't exist any EA or any human brain with the cappacity of have a positive odds of 10:1 over the market.

Another advise for newbies. For example in mql5 signals, we can see the ratio 'algo trading'. For the signals based on EAs, this ratio should be 100%, or 99% because open a position manually in the wrong account by error can happens. But I see often signals of this kind of EAs that the algo trading is only 70-80-90, this means that the creator of the EA is acting when the DD is discontroled.

And comes other trick to my head to detect these kind of dangerous accounts. Accounts that has made profits of >=1000% but starting with amounts as little like 50 or 100$. It's very easy to the seller start accounts with this low amounts and launch a big risk until this initial low ammount has multiplied for x4, x5, x10. Obiously for every account that get x10, a lot of other accounts has lose money or haven't get this big profit, but is part of the trick. Once any of the accounts has this fancy profit of 1000% for example, the signal is published and newbies subscrobes in mass until the next wipe. A proof of this is that the account has not been plublished since the start, because really don't exist only this account, this is part of 10,20,50 or any large number of accounts...

Another trick of the EA sellers is publish a lot of signals with different setups. Divide in timeframes, or divide in pairs, or divide in systems. Use different combinations. After some time, the losing combinations dissapear from the list of signals and only the winning combinations are showing. And a newbie can think: ah, it's ok, this system in AUDUSD and USDJPY in m15 timeframe is a beast, and don't understand that can be only a good streak of this setup. If a system is not profitable in the whole, a single setup is only profitable because a good streak, but the system don't have an edge in mid term neither in this setup.

For all the users of the forum which are reading this, remember that I would like that this forum can be a place for understand the algo tranding, the pros and cons of the different strategies, help to detect scams, anything that can help us to be in the winning side of the traders community. So I invite anybody to open a discussion about any theme related with this, I will collaborate with my experience of EAs creator and retail trader.

Thank you for the weekly brief as always.

I remember that seeing the gap of the monday before market opens, I was thinking that stop the SFE Night Scalper in this conditions is the safe, and at least this time was true. But we didn't and got the loses.

I added this to my list of tasks, I want to test if this monday gaps are profitable or not in mid/long term, becuase in short term are obviously risky.

And the fu*** EURUSD,  still haven't decided to make a good move. But this may come in any moment, every time seems more risky have confidence in this perpetual retrace of the movement, so let's see when comes a good breakout.  This desired new highs, needs the collaboration of the EURUSD pair...

And yes, the Sept 19th promises to be an exiting day...

Next week I will publish your signal in my list in mql5.
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on September 01, 2019, 05:26:07 AM
Thanks Joel for the insightful post about how to spot dodgy systems. :)

The other thing I would also like to add to the criteria, is the total number of trades a system has taken. A lot of systems that seem to have incredible growth over 1-2 years only have a few hundred or at most 1000-2000 trades. This means their systems have not passed the statistical test on whether their system is profitable or not in the long term.

On the other hand SFE PA has a proven record with a 10 year backtest and has had more than 21000 trades in live trading so far, and it is still maintaining an overall growth of 430%. The numbers donít lie, especially when you have a large number of samples that are statistically significant. :)

So for me to trust a system, I believe it needs to have at least 5000-10000 trades to be considered robust, otherwise they may just be on borrowed time before the system eventually crashes. It is similar to many betting systems in roulette and baccarat I had come across in the past - they may look promising over a few hundred or even a few thousand plays, but in the long term, the casino edge will alway catch up and crash the account in the end... :(

EURUSD is now trading at 1.0960...what a shame a lot of the EU shorts were stopped out at breakeven earlier. :(

Oh well at least there is a GJ sell trade now thatís making up for some of the missed profits. :)

And comes other trick to my head to detect these kind of dangerous accounts. Accounts that has made profits of >=1000% but starting with amounts as little like 50 or 100$. It's very easy to the seller start accounts with this low amounts and launch a big risk until this initial low ammount has multiplied for x4, x5, x10. Obiously for every account that get x10, a lot of other accounts has lose money or haven't get this big profit, but is part of the trick. Once any of the accounts has this fancy profit of 1000% for example, the signal is published and newbies subscrobes in mass until the next wipe. A proof of this is that the account has not been plublished since the start, because really don't exist only this account, this is part of 10,20,50 or any large number of accounts...

Another trick of the EA sellers is publish a lot of signals with different setups. Divide in timeframes, or divide in pairs, or divide in systems. Use different combinations. After some time, the losing combinations dissapear from the list of signals and only the winning combinations are showing. And a newbie can think: ah, it's ok, this system in AUDUSD and USDJPY in m15 timeframe is a beast, and don't understand that can be only a good streak of this setup. If a system is not profitable in the whole, a single setup is only profitable because a good streak, but the system don't have an edge in mid term neither in this setup.

For all the users of the forum which are reading this, remember that I would like that this forum can be a place for understand the algo tranding, the pros and cons of the different strategies, help to detect scams, anything that can help us to be in the winning side of the traders community. So I invite anybody to open a discussion about any theme related with this, I will collaborate with my experience of EAs creator and retail trader.

Thank you Joel for this post. And everyone should read and occasionally re-read it. It is so easy to fall for these offers looking like easy success ... I would also agree that you just have to look for longer histories. For price action EAs and trend following EAs with relatively large SL and TP, backtests can be informative (but you still have to see that live trades are matching the backtests) but for scalpers really only live trading shows you anything ...

ccjhunag, please keep posting your updates. I am running SFE Attractor together with Forex Cyborg (sorry Joel, I hope it is o.k. to mention that here. I had Cyborg before I saw your EAs ....) A very nice combo so far. Most of all though, I have to say, I am incredibly impressed by how SFE Attractor trades.

about Frero system or similar systems, last months, near two years already, has been a big opportunity for this kind of systems which never closes a losing position. Yes they close single positions, but only closes all the opened positions when the balance of them is positive. These systems different variants, but in general they are grid systems in the sense that opens multiple positions when they falls in loses, a limited number obviously, trying to not fall in a margin call.

Is like a refined version of martingale systems, and while the average life of a martingale system, I think is strange that can go more far than some weeks, this grid systems can survive more until the Apocalypsy day.

Another famous systems of this kind is the ForexStay signals and EAs on mql5. Last week, the ForexStay main signal was at very few pips of the margin call, but a holly reverse at last moment did safe the account again for the moment. I remember forexstay signals wipe all his accounts one or two years ago, but now has returned with force.

The problem with these systems is that sometimes the creator of of the systems publishes the system as if can get this profit always and the risk is controlled. No doubt that in flat moments, grid systems can be a lot profitable, but the creator should inform to his users that at the first big movement in contrary direction the account is wiped. This means that when you use this systems, you have to witdhdraw the won money regularly, because soon or later all the balance will be lost.

For newbies, I will explain the trick to know if we are in front of this danger:   any account with a stats of profit factor above 3-4-5, and more this accounts with profit factors of 10 or more, are systems that only will end in a margin call, because this profit factor is the proof that the system don't accept close a losing position, so, if the trade don't change his strategy meanwhile, the account will broke at final. Don't exist any EA or any human brain with the cappacity of have a positive odds of 10:1 over the market.

Another advise for newbies. For example in mql5 signals, we can see the ratio 'algo trading'. For the signals based on EAs, this ratio should be 100%, or 99% because open a position manually in the wrong account by error can happens. But I see often signals of this kind of EAs that the algo trading is only 70-80-90, this means that the creator of the EA is acting when the DD is discontroled.

Yes sadly you won't see this kind of information on most Forex forums, because they are full of sellers who won't admit that their systems don't have long term edge over the market. They probably have tens or hundreds of systems that had already failed, and they just publish the only one that has survived after a few months, and make it look like the next holy grail.

Joel's vision is to make this forum a place where people can be better educated about Forex and see Forex as a game of statistics and probability, rather than a get-rich-quick scheme or just pure gambling. I really hope we can make a difference and help people stop losing money in Forex. :)

But people also need to understand that patience is very important (as it can take a long time for the market to become favourable again as we have seen with SFE PA), and you do need to have large enough funds to make trading Forex worthwhile. For example, a combination of Joel's EAs can probably deliver 200-300% gain in a good year, but if you only trade with $1000 then that's only $2000-3000 gain for the year! So that's why I have used a lot higher risks in my accounts and traded them as if they were much larger, in order to maximise the return on my investment. It is definitely risky but it has paid off so far. :)

I believe after the next big gain I should have another $50-100K in profit, and once that happens I will finally be able to just trade at normal risk and let the account grow. If I can have $150K in my account, then having 200-300% gain in a year with normal risk would already give me $300K-$450K in profit. Then I can really start thinking about retirement! :D

There is no problem mentioning other EAs here. Itís good to let people know whatís good and bad out there and thatís the purpose of this forum. :)

Actually Forex Cyborg seems legit and in some way maybe similar to SFE Night Scalper - at least the growth curve looks similar and they both had large losses on the yen pairs on 3rd Jan this year from the flash crash. Does Forex Cyborg mainly trade in Asian hours like SFE Night Scalper?

Here is the myfxbook page I am looking at: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/forexcyborg/forex-cyborg-darwinex/2184469

But I must say the lot sizes with Forex Cyborg does seem a little large to me. Itís running between 0.80-1.70 lots per trade on a 22K euro account whereas with SFE NS you would be running at 0.01 per 300 euro for recommended risk, so a 22K euro account would only be running at about 22000 / 300 = 0.73 Lot per trade if that account was running SFE NS. Maybe Forex Cyborg has a tighter stoploss to compensate for that?

Hello!
yes, I have been busy, but the signal is now ready in mql5!

SFE Combo MQL5 signal:
https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/622106 (https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/622106)

Let's see if Jimmy can get this last good run before return to a most moderate risk. All people interested in follow the signal, remember that is currently a very very high risk! Read the description of the signal carefully.

And yes, there is no problem to talk about other EAs or anything, the only I ask to all the members of the forum is try to aport his knowledge and experience.

Thanks Joel!

Yes I am just waiting for the offical SFE Price Action account to get back to equity high before I reduce my risk. I believe it is likely to happen very soon, as both SFE PA and SFE EU have been in DD for about 6-7 months now and it is really about time for the market to have a major breakout on EU and other major pairs. Iím mainly waiting for Sep 19th to see if the FOMC and other major economic releases on that day will give us what we need, but of course something could happen before that as well! :)

This week has been pretty boring...I am down 4% on my account this week so far :(

Letís see if the Friday NFP will give us the volatility we are after...although some past NFPs have also produced zig-zig movements which could be bad for the SFE EAs. We will just have to see what the market will give us. ::)

SFE EURUSD: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=800051-860602#week)
-$116.77

The market was mostly quiet this week and it was reflected on the losses on SFE PA/Attractor/EU because there was not enough volatility to generate enough price movement to benefit the EAs. Nevertheless it's good to see how well these EAs are designed at exiting unfavourable trades and I am only down less than 4% for the week. To be able to minimise losses is just as important as maximising gains! ;)

I believe at the moment the market is just waiting for the ECB decision next week and the FOMC decision the week after. Therefore I expect some good price movements in the next 2 weeks which should be favourable to the price action based SFE EAs. Let's see what the market will bring us in the next fortnight. :)

Have a nice weekend!

Thank you for the weekly report Jimmy,

and congratulations, your post is the most popular of the Forum already.

I know that we are only 4 cats in the forum right now, but maybe this can be the beginning of a profitable place to share the forex experiences.

Trying to take benefit of the feedback I begin to see in the forum with the first apports of the users, I just started a new section called Forex Brainstorm Lab. I want to take profit of all our brains there for the objective of a mid / long term success in the Forex adventure.
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on September 07, 2019, 03:58:40 PM
No worries, itís my pleasure to be contributing to the forum. ;)

I also find I am improving my foreign languages when I read you posts - I have finally worked out that ď4 catsĒ means ďa few peopleĒ (https://www.quora.com/How-did-the-term-Four-cats-in-French-Italian-and-Spanish-come-about) and ďaportar/apportsĒ means ďto contribute/contributionsĒ. :D

I think the Brainstorm lab will be an interesting place to watch, but I know I already have a profitable portfolio with SFE Combo. I am planning to set the SFE PA/SFE ATR/SFE EU/SFE NS ratio to 60/60/60/30 as the normal risk for my account once I get the next big gain, and I am sure this new portfolio will remain profitable in the long term. :D

I really admire your work ethic in that you keep trying to improve your EAs, especially when they are already better than 99% of whatís out there in the market! ;D

Of course, itís always good to improve more, so please keep up the good work! :)

Today is ECB day!

Historically the price action based SFE EAs have done very well whenever there is a surprise from central bank decisions, especially the ECB and the FOMC.

Let's see if we will get some nice fireworks today! ;D

Wow!
what a big movement and a big trap today. Looked a perfect hit until the green line, incredible how the price has reversed all the length in only one hour.
Fortunately other set of trades has entered in the reversal, let's see if can run away a bit more...
The day ends with and incredible bullish hammer of the EUR. I hope that things follow the rules for one day and the uptrend continues in the friday session....

(https://i.ibb.co/NmM1Q4Z/image1.png) (https://ibb.co/jWSVBpg)

Has been a very active day, but seems that the x5 risk needs to be reduced because this has been a big roller coaster today !!  :o
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on September 13, 2019, 01:41:29 AM
Yes it was a crazy day!

I think I was fortunate that something like this didnít happen when my account was smaller, otherwise I would have been margin-called!

But itís still good to see how the SFE EAs were able to accept losses and change the trade direction when itís right to do so, and now I am a bit up in equity after all. :)

If we can get another extension on the EUR pairs today then my account should have a nice gain.

My original plan was to reduce the risk once my account gets to $150K, then I will be running the following lot sizes:

SFE PA - 0.6 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $1000)
SFE ATR - 0.6 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $1000)
SFE EU - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $600)
SFE NS - 0.9 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$31500 at 0.01 Lot per $350)

Total amount risked = US$60K + US$60K + US$60K + US$31.5K = US$211.5K

So using the merging SFE experts guide, my exposure would be roughly US$211.5K / 2.1 = US$100.71K = AU$146.8K (with AU exchange rate of 0.686)

Which means if I can get to AU$150K on my account and run the above lot sizes, I will be trading at recommended risk. :D

But after yesterdayís wake up call, I think I will just reduce the lot sizes to what I mentioned above, once the current basket closes. Even if my account doesnít end up with $150K, the new risk will still be much more acceptable than 4-5x recommended risk! :P

Hi jimmy, there must be running ice-water in your veines ..  8) 8)

Impressive that you did not close it all when you were back at new equity high for some minutes yesterday, after the reversal .. so well-done .. i am sure you will come out in a profitable way now.

Just want to re-make my point, that i still dont believe you are running 5X the risk, but closer to 10X for now, since you use the same capital for all four EA`s .. just saying .. not pointing fingers  ;D ;D

I think I was ok...I was a bit stunned when all the sell trades hit SL and left me down $50K, but before I knew it the EAs had already recovered the losses within the next hour. 8)

I already know this is what Joel's EAs are capable of, so I just leave the trades in his EAs' hands. I don't think any human trader would have been able to recover the losses with the crazy movements yesterday - they would have just held the sell trades and be in huge DD after the prices retraced completely and may still be holding the sell trades now...it was definitely a very nasty short squeeze!

Yeah 5x or 10x risk doesn't really matter now, because I will be lowering the risk after this basket is closed. I am just glad that I survived a day which I know I wouldn't have if I was trading manually! ;D

SFE EURUSD: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=800051-860602#week)
-$10840.94

Wow...what a week it was! :o The ECB certainly didn't disappoint and gave us a lot of volatility, but the U-turn on EURUSD was certainly very nasty and my account was down about $50K very quickly! Fortunately the SFE EAs were able to catch the reversal and recovered all the losses. Now I have a basket of nice floating profit going into next week. :)

SFE PA and SFE Attractor ended the week with nice positive gains, and it is SFE EU that had a large loss. I think again it demonstrates the importance of trading multiple pairs for risk diversification to help minimise the drawdown. I am sure SFE EU will recover soon (maybe as soon as next week with the coming FOMC), but it would certainly be better to have less DD! ;)

Following the big (although temporary) drawdown on ECB day, I have decided that I will change my lot sizes to the following once the current basket closes:

SFE PA - 0.6 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $1000)
SFE ATR - 0.6 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $1000)
SFE EU - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $600)
SFE NS - 0.9 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$31500 at 0.01 Lot per $350)

Total amount risked = US$60K + US$60K + US$60K + US$31.5K = US$211.5K

So using Joelís merging SFE experts guide (see attached), my exposure would be roughly US$211.5K / 2.1 = US$100.71K = AU$146.8K (with AU exchange rate of 0.686)

Which means if my account has AU$150K and run the above lot sizes, I will be trading at the recommended risk. :D

Even if my account doesnít have $150K, the new risk will still be much more acceptable than 4-5x recommended risk. For example, if my account has $100K then I would be running at 1.5x recommended risk with the new lot sizes.

If the current trades don't all close before FOMC next week, then I plan to change the lot sizes just 10 minutes before FOMC takes place, so if another nasty zigzag happens this time we won't be hit as much.

For current subscribers, please leave the risk multiplier at 0.20 for now. Once I have reduced the risk on my account I will post an update here, and once that happens it would then be safe for you to use a risk multiplier higher than 0.20.

Have a nice weekend! :)

Hi guys,

I got into this interesting debate with a member on DonnaForex about the maths behind merging the SFE EAs: https://donnaforex.com/index.php?topic=19777.msg391676#msg391676

I am sure Joel and my theory is correct but the member does not believe me...do you guys have a better way to explain it and help him understand?

Or if someone can do a backtest of running two SFE EAs together on the same account...maybe that will help convince him. :)

Hi Jimmy,

I just posted a message there in relation to this, the message is waiting for approval.

I'm reviewing the exit strategy of the Attractor system. For the moment seems that I can't improve the final profit, but I'm trying to get out  more fast than the current rythm without lose this potential profit.
 
And also, for low balance accounts or for people that don't want to use partial closes, I'm trying to put the TP at a more close distance (when partial close are not used), without lose a significant potential of profit.

I don't think this changes will lead to a significant improvement of the performance, but will make the use of the EA more comfortable because the orders will remain open less time in general and this is good for our health.

Your post is still not showing on DonnaForex yet. I hope they will approve your post soon. But just bear in mind that they are strict about not allowing links to other forums so they may not approve your message if you asked members to come here for discussion, or if you left a direct link to our forum in your post. I have been cautioned by the forum owner Donna herself via PM when I posted a direct link to our forum. :-[

I look forward to the improvements on the EAs, and I believe next week should give us a good chance of making nice profits given the number of high impact news that are due. :)

I see, I just removed the message, not for think that can't be approved, but because really I peffer that people don't expect my participation there, you know I use all my free time to the work on the EAs and if I exchange feedback with the community I will center this here.

Next is my explanation, the point is that he talked about 'max' profit, and obviously I didn't said that the final profit is the sum of 'max' profits:

As an example, and assuming a fixed size of the trades:

If in the backtest the DD of the system A is for example 300$, and you want to fix the DD to 30%, then you need 1000$ of balance.

And if the system B is the same, DD of 300$, you need 1000$ for the system B for fix a 30% DD.

But if you use A+B and you apply the same criteria, have max. 30% DD, you don't need 1000+1000=2000$, becuase the probability that the 300+300 DD happens at the same moment if very low. Then, this depends of the correlation between strategies, and then you can do a merged bactkest an if the result is for example that max DD with A+B has been 450$, then, for fix the DD at 30%, you need 450/0.3 = 1500 $ instead of 2000 $.

And at same time, the 'total' profit (I didn't say the maximum profit) at the end of a period X or at the end of the backtest, is obviously the sum of the profit of the system A + system B at this date. And for reach this profit, you have only used 1500$ instead of 2000$. This is the final conclusion, that if your system A needs 1000$ and your system B needs 1000$, for use both with the same risk criteria (30% of the balance), you 'only' need 1500$, not 2000$, and you are still gaining the profit A + profit B, this is, the same profit using less $ of balance, then a better yield of the inversion.

Anyway, the document I wrote some years ago, some of the new EAs doesn't exist at that moment, then, I will do a global backtest soon to update my conclusions about the % of the EAs and which of them are more or less correlated.

Thanks very much Joel. :)

I have posted your reply there and hopefully it will be the end of the debate there.

And yes I would much prefer you to focus on working and improving the EAs, than to spend too much time explaining all the basics to people that donít understand statistics and probability very well.

I remember there was a question like this: you are at a game show, there are 3 doors and one has a prize behind it. You pick a door at random, and then the host opens one of the other 2 doors which is empty. And now he asks you if you would like to swap your choice or not. A lot of people would say they wonít swap because they think the chance of them having the prize is now 1/2, but in fact if they change their choice then they actually have 2/3 chance of winning the prize! And some people just never believe this no matter how hard you try to explain the theory to them... :-\

Hi Guys,

I don't have too many active trades left now, so I have decided to change the lots sizes on my account now before the market gets volatile this week.

So as I have mentioned before, my account will now be running the following lot sizes:

SFE Price Action - 0.6 Fixed Lot per trade
SFE Attractor - 0.6 Fixed Lot per trade
SFE EURUSD - 1.0 Fixed Lot per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 0.9 Fixed Lot per trade


Given my account is now sitting at around $100K, this setting is roughly equivalent to 1.5x recommended risk. I believe it is now be safe for subscribers to use a risk multiplier of 1, because with recommended risk the max DD is usually between 20-30%, so at 1.5x recommended risk the max expected DD should be no more than 30-45%.

However for those who are more conservative, you can always use a lower risk multiplier. :)

There is a lot of price action and volatility expected this week, and it will be interesting to see if we can finally get a big breakout on EU and other major pairs. ;)

Honestly why does this debate have to end ?? i dont see anything bad in having different opinions. And, also, i personally do not agree with the the "theory" regarding risk-assesment that Jimmy uses. (i am of the opinion that he very much underestimate the real risk in his portfolio) But it is his choice, and his money etc etc. So that is obviously fine. But if we cannot discuss theories here (which i hope this forum should facilitate) then we will never gain anything and never be wiser. I would still hope somebody could bring a more "scientific" approach to the risk-assesment. For me having been in forex for 20+ years i try to use simple math and somehow probabilities, but that is the exact problem. The math is always right if applied, the probability is is somehow extreme arbitrary. So for me, this debate could hopefully go on for a very long time.  :o ;D :D and may be one day, we would get a much clearer picture of how to estimate real risk.

I think it is is important that the "tone" is friendly in a forum, but we must accept that everybody have different background and approaches to Forex.

Well I have tried my best to educate the people there, but I think most of them just don't believe the maths behind the SFE systems and prefer to keep looking for a holy grail that doesn't exist.

I was just trying to say that regarding the debate for merging the SFE EAs, I and Joel are definitely right about the max DD will be smaller while the total profit will be the same.

With regards to whether the max DD is reduced by the same amount as Joel had calculated when you merge the EAs, the debate can certainly go on. :)

I think the best way is for Joel to run a merged backtest (if that is possible) running SFE PA/SFE ATR/SFE EU/SFE NS at 60/60/60/30 ratio of recommended risk over 10 years with fixed lots and see what the max DD will be. ;)

A backtest would probably give us a very good idea ... so hopefully it is possible to do that for the portfolio. I am not expert in portfolio backtesting, but pretty sure that the tools exist. Hope it is also in Joels toolbox :-)

Most of the gains this week came from the floating profits from last week. The rest of the week, including FOMC and other high impact news, didn't give us much price movements at all which was rather disappointing. :(

I think we will just need to be patient and wait for the next big moves in the market - which I believe will happen at some point as we get closer to the Brexit deadline at the end of October. :)

Hi guys,

Joel has just released SFE Night Scalper 5.0 this weekend (https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=28.msg760#msg760), so I have updated SFE NS to this newest version on my account. It will still be trading at 0.9 Fixed Lot per trade as before.

I look forward to the profits that will continue to come with this great EA! :)

Announcements this week:
  • SFE Night Scalper has been upgraded to version 5.1
  • The Signal Start ranking has dropped from #2 to #41 after I reduced the risk last week. I think with their ranking formula it's simply impossible to keep the ranking up in the long term, unless you use some crazy risks to bump up your gains and then just stop trading ???

Jimmy, please look at your SFE nightscalper for September. You are at exactly zero. But Joels reference account is at around + 8% ..did you make some analytics on that ? .. I wonder how that huge difference could emerge ?

It was an up and down week this week. I lost about 2.5% on the last day of September on Monday, and then gained about 7% from the RBA rate decision on Tuesday, and the Gold trades dragged my account back down again over the last few days. NFP unfortunately was another dud...

It was unfortunate that Gold had too many false breakouts this week and I lost $7.7K on Gold alone.

Below is my stats on Gold:
(https://i.imgur.com/bcfM50I.jpg)

As you can see, in the long term I have made over $60K with Gold so I believe the loss will eventually be recovered. We just need to be patient for the right moment to come. :)

Next week we have the release of FOMC Minutes. Let's see if it will generate a bit more price action than the Statement itself in September. ::)

Just a quick note to let you guys know I have updated SFE Night Scalper to version 6.0 on my SFE Combo account.

The lot size remains the same at 0.90 Fixed Lot per trade (which is equivalent to trading 0.01 lot per $333.33, as I am assigning $30000 to this EA - and this is just within the maximum recommended risk).

It also will also disable currency pairs when Joel disables them, as Joel had explained in his post: https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=28.msg809#msg809

This week was rather quiet until the last 2 trading days when the GBP jumped on some optimistic news. We ended the week with a small gain and I believe there will be more gains to come as Brexit (whether deal or no deal) finally happens.

I have purchased SFE Stealth and added it to the SFE Combo portfolio. I am running it at 1.50 Fixed Lot per trade which equals to trading 0.01 lot per $300 on a $45000 account (ie. I am assigning 45% of my $100K account to this EA). The risk is probably slightly on the high end (not to mention my account is in AUD which also adds about another 50% risk), but I believe it will work out well. It has already made back about $900 for me out of the $1250 I paid for it! ;D

If any of you are interested in buying it, please do so over the weekend otherwise the price will go back to $1500 on Monday. ;)

Have a nice weekend! :D

This week was a bloodbath!...while GU made a lot of gains this week, there was too much retracement after each spike and the EAs were not able to capitalise on the price actions. SFE Attractor was the biggest loser and lost about $7K. :(

Big volatility is expected early next week and Joel has made an announcement that he will disable the GBP, EUR, CHF and USD pairs in SFE Night Scalper and SFE Stealth (https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=545.msg850). This will apply to my account as well.

The other thing is, from next week I am going to increase the lot size on SFE EURUSD to 1.2 Fixed Lot per trade, and the lot sizes on SFE Price Action and SFE Attractor to 0.7 Fixed Lot per trade. The DD on the official SFE EU account is now approaching 30% and it has been losing 9 straight months in a row. This is simply not going to continue forever, and I believe a massive gain on SFE EU is imminent. I am also increasing the risk on SFE PA and SFE ATR by 16% (lot size increase from 0.6 to 0.7) as I also believe they will rebound strongly after the recent losses. I believe a firm, clean, one-way breakout will eventually happen once there is a final Brexit outcome, and that SFE PA, SFE ATR and SFE EU should all make good gains from it. Let's see if things turn out as I planned.

Have a nice weekend! ;)

Hi Jimmy, you make great updates. However i am (still) of the opinion that you are too much overweight in Break-out strategies. Neither of the EA`s catched the move yesterday in EURUSD, and in my opinion EURUSD is not a favorite to one-streak break-outs anyways, simply because the fact that the interest on both sides (Buyers / Sellers) on that pair is too big, which will dampened the possibilities for one-way stretch. But i hope you are right. Lets see :-)

Anyways, there is something i dont understand. When i see your Stealth results this week, it is around 0.5% profit and you are slightly higher than recommended risk. Joels EA made 1.44% (please see attached) .. is it something  that concerns you ?

I think itís due to those trades that closed early on Joelís account and ended up in some losses on my account: https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=544.msg837#msg837

I am not worried because I believe in the long term these small differences will even out. :)

And I still believe EU will make a come back with vengeance very soon, and GU with it too. You are right there are a lot of buyers and sellers on EU which makes it difficult to have a clean breakout lately, but I believe when it does, it will be a spectacular one, and a lot of systems who take contrarian trades will likely be wiped out or suffer massive losses (Frero for example)

Letís what next week will bring us. ;)

Hi Jimmy,

of the five EAs of SFE Combo, with the just upgraded version of PA and ATR, only EURUSD left to review and find an improvement.

I have confidence in that the new PA and ATR have to develop well also with this difficult market of the last months, years already.

So, I have a big confidence in this portfolio right now, let's see...

Post by: Jimmy on October 21, 2019, 01:29:40 AM
Thanks Joel for the updates, and yes I am very much looking forward to the recovery which should happen soon. ;)

After the release of the new versions on SFE PA and SFE Attractor, I have revised the lot size on each EA to the following:

SFE Price Action - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $600)
SFE Attractor - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$70000 at 0.01 Lot per $700)
SFE EURUSD - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$60000 at 0.01 Lot per $600)
SFE Night Scalper - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$30000 at 0.01 Lot per $300)
SFE Stealth - 1.0 Fixed Lot (amount risked = US$30000 at 0.01 Lot per $300)

So the total amount risked = US$250000, with a good ratio between the price action based EAs and the asian session / late session EAs.

And it's a bit of a personal thing, but I like round numbers, so having them all trading at 1.0 Lot makes me feel happy and confident about them. ;D

Finally, a nice recovery this week with some floating profit going into the weekend. :)

SFE Stealth - still giving steady profits. (I think it could be renamed to SFE Steady! :D)

SFE Price Action had a small loss for this week, while SFE Attractor managed to make a nice comeback with the price actions later in the week.

SFE EURUSD - good to see it finally have a positive week, after 4 straight weeks of losses prior.

SFE Night Scalper - a small loss for the week.

It seems like Brexit is going to be postponed again, but we still have a lot of high impact news next week - especially just before the month ends on 31st October:

What great price action from FOMC today! :D

We should also have more volatility leading up to the UK election in December so things are looking very promising for the price action EAs (SFE Price Action, SFE Attractor and SFE EURUSD) in the near future. ;)

Post by: Attractor on October 31, 2019, 11:19:19 PM
Really the movements has been tiny in comparison with 2-3 years ago, but at the SFE are ready now for this environment, and for example ATTR has performed very well with the last changes in the new version.

Now the situation of the SFE Family is:
PA, ATTR, NS, STE with new or updated versions and very good expectation.

KISS I just published an update. For KISS will be difficult make big profit in the current environment, because don't have the 'counter' systems, but at least I think is ready for not fall in loses even now, and when big straight movements comes again, will do a lot of profit.

F&F, similar situation as KISS, I'm working on a new version right now.

EURUSD, will come next, is powerful but need some work for adapt to the current low strenght of the movements.

Well, I have the feeling that all together begins to be a powerful collection to aspire to profits every year!

And yes we've had a very good run in the past week and finished October with over $8k profit for the month. 8)

Next we will see if the NFP tonight will give the EAs more volatility and price actions to capitalised on. ;)

+$571.92

This week went very well as I expected. FOMC was the main event that gave us most of the gains.

SFE Attractor was the biggest winner with nearly $9K gain, and SFE PA finished the week with $2K gain.

SFE Stealth had another week of steady gain with $810 for the week.

SFE EU also made a modest gain of $571, and SFE NS had a relatively quiet week and ended the week at about break-even.

My account is now nearly back to equity high with the DD being only 2.57% from the peak. It will be very soon before we make a new equity high. :)

Going forward, I am planning to increase the lot size on my account by 0.1 lot for every $10K increase on my account (ie. the lot size will be increased to 1.1 Fixed Lot for all EAs once my account reaches $110K, 1.2 Fixed Lot when my account reaches $120K, and so on). In this way, I will be able to take advantage of exponential gains while keeping my expected max DD to around 50%.

If things go well I expect to make 200-300% gain in a year (assuming an average of 10% gain per month, with exponential growth you will get 1.1^12 = 3.14 times the initial deposit). Let's see if things go according to my plan over the next 12 months. :)

The DD on my account is now less than 1% from the peak! 8)

All trades have been closed on my account and itís now sitting at $107K. I have therefore increased the lot sizes for all the EAs to 1.07 Fixed Lot per trade.

Let the exponential growth begin! ;D

Yes unfortunately my VPS somehow restarted itself on early Friday morning during my sleep and the MT4 was not running for about 6 hours so I missed the trades during that time.

Itís the second time the CNS VPS has caused issues in the past few weeks (the first time was when my AutoFxPro Provider EA stopped working during FOMC due to lack of resources and subscribers to the AutoFxPro signal missed some profitable trades). :(

I have just changed my VPS to ForexVPS yesterday and I hope no further issues will happen again.

Hi Jimmy, i have been in forex many years. Up to 4 years ago i tried all kind of VPS .. always in the hope that the "next" VPS would be better. I had same issues as you have. An now with the responsibility that you have to subscribers etc etc. i understand your frustration.

But even i dont know your "total set-up" i think you do a mistake running VPS. VPS is as it says "Virtual" servers, meaning that bottleneck situations comes up all the time because the VPS providers try to squeze as many clients into their system as possible. It is like airlines selling tickets, they always oversell in the "statistically" calculation that there will be no-shows etc. Until one day that all customers shows up. ooops.  (I am educated commercial pilot as well, so i know how it works). .. In addition seems to me you have to few RAM`s allocated (only based on your previous blog post) .. So my best "guess" is that you will experience exactly the same again, just impossible to say when.

I had it on all 5-6 VPS i used .. However my problem was solved over night .. i decided to get a 100% dedicated server. My server, my configuration, 100% guaranteed uptime .. 200 Mbps internet-speed, 12 GB RAM. I run 15 - 20 MT4 platforms simultaneously. Never had ONE single problem in 4 years ..
Never had one freeze, one crash, one overload ! .. It gives so much peace of mind.

Just for your information. may be give it a thought

Where do you do this? Which company do you trust and how much does this cost?
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on November 10, 2019, 09:52:33 AM
Hi paulomaks,

Thatís a nice suggestion but I am not sure if the cost would be justified for me...I am only running 2 MT4s (one for SFE Combo and one for another account) which shouldnít use up too much resources. But you could be right that maybe the activities across the whole server during FOMC depleted the resources on my own VPS as well.

On ForexVPS the basic dedicated server costs around $250 per month.

I think I will stick out with the VPS on ForexVPS for the next few months first and see how things go. If there are still problems then I may give dedicated server a try. :)

Also I am interested to know why you have so many MT4s running? Are they all your own accounts or you trade for other people as well? How successful have you been in trading Forex all these years and do you have other systems that you find profitable apart from Joelís EAs? :)
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: paulomaks on November 10, 2019, 10:20:36 AM
@ Castellers de Vilafrance .. The company i use is Codero USA. They have server-hotels in more states. For me, i am not a supporter of the "philosophy" that a VPS / Server must be as close to NYC as possible. It makes no real sense to me, and it is a pure marketing-tool as i see it. Light-speed is light-speed and if your trading depends on 10 milliseconds, then you will never win anyways (just my opinion of course).

I started 4 years ago with those guys and got a lock-in (forever) price at 110 USD per month. I see now that the price is around 170 - 250 usd.

But the service is outstanding. You configure your server, and you know you have your own server in a rack, and  support answers your questions within minutes. Very very personal service. No "cut and paste" answers :-).

But there are many companies that offers dedicated servers, so i think it is a matter of surfing a bit and try to make a good deal. As said, the beauty of this is that you know 100% that your server belongs to you, and you only.

But for me, i stick to Codero, - they stick to me  ;D ;D ;D ;D

https://codero.com/managed-dedicated-servers/

Hope it gives some inspiration :-)

Thank you for your ongoing updates and thoughts around the EAs. Really helpful for me. I continue to run the combination of Attractor, Stealth, and Forex Cyborg and they seem to work nicely together. Unfortunately, it is a messy account due to its history. So a bit hard to share.

Side question: I am still kind of new to the mql5 concept. If I decided to move all my accounts to a new VPS or dedicated server, I would have to use an additional license, right?

This is correct. You would have to use 1 additional activation. You probably have 5 to start with.
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo

Not a good week for the SFE EAs...the market still has no clear breakout and SFE Attractor especially was hit hard by some Gold trades again. Only SFE Night Scalper picked up some pips from the relatively quiet market.

The best opportunity was probably the bad AUD numbers on Thursday which caused a big spike up on EURAUD, but the EAs were not interested in buying further and we missed out on the upward extension. I wonder if earlier versions of SFE PA would have jumped in with more buy trades? ???

Anyway, the week is now behind us. Let's look forward to the next one. :)

Post by: Castellers de Vilafranca on November 20, 2019, 08:08:19 PM
Well FOMC was a fizzer for the markets and us. No worries. I think generally we have to be careful not to "over" optimize the EA's. Sure we missed some EURAUD trades last week...BUT...we may also have missed out on bigger losses on another pair. So i think it's likely prudent for the EA that "if it ain't broke, then it don't need fixing"

Yes I agree. I am not really complaining but it's just a bit frustrating watching the market going nowhere lately.

Anyway, I am in it for the long haul and I know Joel's systems will make new highs eventually.

I am happy to just continue waiting patiently. :)

-$254.07

Another disappointing week for the EAs, with SFE Attractor leading the loss with $-5K.

There aren't many high impact news next week, so the market is likely to remain quiet again.

The DD on my account is now just a bit over 10%, which is easily recoverable with a good day's trade. And I am optimistic that the EAs will be able to make some gains in the coming weeks, as the UK Parliament election on 12th Dec approaches. :)

We ended this week at about break-even, with a small floating profit going into next week.

November ended with -$4.9K loss overall, but I believe December will give us a lot of profitable opportunities - we will have RBA, BOC and NFP next week, followed by FOMC, ECB and the UK Parliament election in the week after.

I am quite confident December should be a positive month for the EAs, so I have decided to increase the trading lot size from 1.07 lot per trade to 1.20 lot per trade from next week.

I will also update SFE Stealth to version 1.1 once it is released.

I am really looking forward to a profitable December so that I can buy some nice Christmas presents! :)

Oops my bad. Version 1.1 is not published yet!

I thought version 1.1 was already released, so I logged into my account on MQL5.com and went to the product page (https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/39238) and clicked "install on the terminal" and it went through the installation process and I thought my EA was updated to version 1.1.

I just checked it again, and it seems that I just re-installed version 1.0!

Anyway, when the new version is released, you can install the new version through clicking the "install on the terminal" link on the product page just like what I did.

As I predicted, this week's volatility has produced nice profits for all the price action based EAs, especially SFE Attractor. SFE NS had some losses but that's kind of expected when there are strong movements in the market. On the other hand, I am quite pleased to see that SFE Stealth still managed to get some profit out of the more volatile market this week.

The Gold basket now has a large floating profit and I certainly would like to see more extension next week. My account is at the verge of breaking the previous equity high any time now. ;D

If things go as I expect, next week we are likely to make even more profit as ECB, FOMC and the UK Parliament election will all be happening. It may well be one of those weeks where the EAs could make 20-30% gain in a week! We shall see. ;)

SFE Stealth 1.1 is now officially released and I have updated it to the latest version on my MT4. :)

Let's see Jimmy... new highs on monday with gold, we deserve this... the look of the chart have very good odds, but we have been repeatedly slapped with reversals...

But I'm happy with the current trading of Attractor, we can see in the current version how the EA tries to exit very fast in losing positions, this way, the DD is in general recoverd at the first good movement. As soon as 2 or 3 good movements happen in a short period, the big profits will come.

And yes, the background work of Stealth has been very good for the moment.

The retracement has come again, and we are now only about 30 "pips" away from our SLs at breakeven (current price 1464 and SLs around 1467).

I believe the price should hit resistance and drop again sharply at some point, but I just hope it won't spike up to hit our SL first before it drops - that would be really annoying!... >:(

Hi Guys,

Just letting you know that I have started a new account called SFE Combo Aggressive - you can follow the Myfxbook stats here: http://www.myfxbook.com/members/jimmy8378/sfe-combo-aggressive/3881379

This account will be running SFE Price Action, SFE Night Scalper, SFE Attractor and SFE Stealth, and the lot size will be 0.01 lot per $500 account balance. The lot size will be increased as the account grows in size, but the lot size will not be reduced when the account goes into DD.

Essentially this account will be running at 2x Risk of the SFE Combo signal, with SFE EURUSD removed.

Obviously there is a risk this account could run into heavy DD, but knowing how well Joel's EAs perform, I am happy to take the risk. I believe if things go well, the exponential growth on this account will be phenomenal.

I have decided to launch this account now because I believe this will be the best opportunity to start this account with a bang, with all the major news happening this week.

If this account grows well, I may consider making it the main signal account in the future. Then I can trade the current SFE Combo account the way I want to, without risking subscribers' capitals.

Let's see how it goes. :)

Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on December 10, 2019, 01:23:57 PM
Ok...so this annoying Gold did reverse and hit all the SLs at BE. I also entered a small manual sell at 1465 which also hit SL. :'(

I guess we will just have to look for the next opportunity then.  :-\

Also, as crazy as it may sound, I have decided to increase the lot size for all the EAs on my SFE Combo account to 1.50 Lot for the rest of this week.

The market has been very quiet for the first few days of this week, which means everyone is just waiting to jump in on the major news coming out later this week. I think especially the big players are waiting for this trading opportunity before they close their books and go on holiday. So I think the price actions in the next few days will be very interesting to watch. I really believe the EAs will be able to make good profit with the major news coming in the next 2 days. Let's see if my prediction will be right. :)
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on December 11, 2019, 12:05:25 PM
The new SFE Combo Aggressive account has gotten off to a great start - now already up 2.74% in 2 daysí trading and holding new Gold buy trades that are already in profit, with SL set at breakeven.

We have the most important day of the month coming up soon - US CPI, FOMC, UK election, ECB and US Retail Sales will all be happening within 24 hours.

This may well be the very last day of this year to make a decent profit. I am very excited to see how the EAs will handle the price actions - and hopefully they will be able to make great gains tomorrow! :)

It's good to see Gold dropping sharply on re-opening, with the same positive GBP news and the US-China (hopefully) deal.

So in a way the EUR trades and the Gold trades were sort of hedged against each other. That's the joy of diversification. :)

I just hope our Gold trades can continue to drop and hit the TPs...we really deserve it! ;D

yes, has been a 'coitus interruptus' for users that have Attractor. The profit went up to 15% for almost disappear at final. Was a very difficult  day yesterday and the average systems yesterday lose a lot, I know because the $ of my followers in myfxbook decreases a 10% yesterday. Make a profit of 10% yesterday would have been an oustanding result seeing the market. I'm enough happy of how develops Attractor but seeing that the movements hardly develops at this moment, I will try to implement a faster way to exit in the winning positions. The Ea exit fast in the losign positions already.

The movement of the GBP yestarday didn't gave any opportunity because a jump of 300 pips happened in few seconds. And his only apport for us was convert profits in medium loses in the EURUSD and EURCAD positons of Attractor, and with a lot of slippage in the SL, very bad luch for this side.

Jimmy, since version 1.1, you have to include the magic number 300151 in your report, there are some trades in the m15 timeframe in this version:

Thanks for letting me know. I will include the new magic number in my report. :)

Sad to see Gold always had to spike higher to take out our trailing SLs and SLs at BE before it goes back down again. Now we only have 2 Gold trades left out of the whole basket from yesterday. Why is it so hard to have a good extension nowadays? :(

Oh well...we can only look forward and keeping going...:)

And you are right, I donít think anyone can ever trade this kind of moves manually. The movements are just too hard to predict. And The Gold buys actually just closed at breakeven, so now I hope Gold will drop again!...such a crazy market...::)

I'm going to admit yesterday I was naughty boy and closed most of the gold trades when the gold opened in the morning with the gap, not the bes price but a pretty good one.
I getting married this weekend and going away so I thought I will just take this prices now and then I can relax an not worry about anything except the big party!! So for me it was such and interesting time to watch the EA's work. And I made some nice profits.

This market gap on the EUR in retrospective i should of thought about this would be affected like the GBP. But to have the exit poll released at exactly broker closing time was terrible timing. Alot of other EA's have done very veyr badly yesterday so I think Joel you have done a good job. If we were all smarter we would of stopped the EUR too just for 30 mins of so. But anyway all we can do is learn.

-$1223.52

What a week it has been...my account did make a new equity high but it was short-lived. At one stage I had $20K floating profit and the equity was sitting at $125K, all of which evaporated after Gold price went back up again. :(

I also took a few small manual trades that didnít go in my favour.

Nevertheless, SFE Attractor did a good job to close the week with $6K in profits.

But as Joel said, to be able to come out with some profit to end the week is already a great achievement, considering so many other systems were hit with major losses.

The other thing is that SFE Stealth just kept grinding and delivering profits regardless of whatís happening in the market, which is just amazing. :)

My new SFE Combo Aggressive account also did very nicely this week, with nearly 10% gain overall. (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/jimmy8378/sfe-combo-aggressive/3881379) Now that the account size is nearly $5500, I will increase the lot size for this account to 0.11 lot per trade from next week.

Going forward with SFE Combo, I still believe we will eventually get a big breakout that we have been waiting for, therefore I am going to keep the lot size at 1.50 lot per trade until that happens. But to help reduce the potential DD, I have decided to remove SFE EURUSD as it has really been struggling and still had losses despite the increased volatility this week. It just seems that the current market does not suit SFE EURUSD very well.

I donít think removing SFE EURUSD will reduce the potential gain too much, as I believe if there are big price movements on the EURUSD pair, SFE PA and SFE Attractor should be able to capture those moves and make profits from them anyway.

So we are just a little over a week until Christmas...let's see if the market will be kind enough to give us some more volatility (and thus profits) before the holiday. :)

What a nasty drop on the GBP pairs during the Asian session today...:(

SFE NS and SFE Stealth both took a bad hit, and who would have thought GU would drop back to the level before the exit poll, after it went up 300 pips in 5 minutes last week?

Anyway, I see it as a sign that the market is getting more volatile again. In the past when there were big losses in one day like this, the EAs may rebound strongly with good gains in the coming days or weeks. Letís see if the same thing will happen again this time... ::)

Probably one of the worst weeks for the SFE EAs - losing about 10% in one week and all of the EAs made losses...

SFE Stealth and SFE NS did not cope well with the thin liquidity leading up to the Christmas/New Year holiday and we suffered significant losses from the nasty GBP drop earlier in the week.

The good news is SFE Stealth and SFE NS will be disabled until January 8 from now (https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=520.msg836#msg836),  so let's hope for a quick recovery in the new year. :)

My SFE Combo account is currently sitting at 12.65% DD, and SFE Combo Aggressive is sitting at 11.82% DD. These DDs are easily recoverable with a good day's gain. I am just patiently waiting for that next big day to come... ;)

Thank you Jimmy for share your account with us this 2019.

You has made a good profit at final  :)

I will do my best for this continue for the SFE part.

Year End Summary 2019

Total: +$106411.57

(https://i.imgur.com/LLqnJ26.png)

My account managed to make over $100K in profit in 2019. It was a good year overall but it's still frustrating to see the lack of extension on breakouts, where large floating profits turned into SL at break-even. We also had big losses on SFE Stealth and SFE NS in the closing weeks of the year, which was a bit unfortunate.

SFE Stealth: -$292.46
(https://i.imgur.com/S1yKLb9.png)

It had a great start but the big loss in the last few weeks of the year lost back all the gains it had made. It was also unfortunate that I was trading with larger lot size (1.50 lot per trade) at the time when the big loss happened. But as Joel mentioned in his other post, I believe it still has great potential and I am sure it will continue to make steady gains in 2020. ;)

SFE Price Action: -$4541.80
(https://i.imgur.com/iCbjV8c.png)

It had a poor start since the start of the year, but managed to recover most of the losses from July onward. I believe it should continue to make gains once the much needed volatility returns to the market. :)

SFE Attractor: +$66914.62
(https://i.imgur.com/GHRQWD3.png)

This is the brightest star of the SFE family! What more can I say...I really look forward to seeing plenty more gains with it in 2020! 8)

SFE Night Scalper: -$3511.84
(https://i.imgur.com/Y547pgh.png)

It had a poor start as well as a poor finish to the year. Overall a small loss for the year. I will keep it running in the background given the great history it had in the past years, and I hope it will regain its previous form in 2020.

SFE EURUSD: -$16331.25
(https://i.imgur.com/I1uFZPT.png)

SFE EU is the worst performer of all and there has not yet been any sign of recovery, so it has been removed from my portfolio. Nevertheless I do hope Joel will be able to find some improvement on it.

Manual Trades: +$64201.20
(https://i.imgur.com/frePg7V.png)

Whether it's by pure luck or brilliant trading skills, I managed to end the year with $64K profit from my manual trading. ::) It's still a risky way to trade given all the emotions and sleepless nights involved, so it's not something I am planning to do too often in the future.


Happy New Year and I look forward to a great 2020 with the SFE EAs!!  ;D

Happy New Year!! :)

I just came across this article which showed how little volatility there was in 2019, which explains why we did not see much extension on breakouts: https://www.forexlive.com/technical-analysis/!/currencies-2019-the-year-of-low-volatility-20191231

In 2019 EURUSD had the lowest volatility dating back to 1980! - no wonder SFE EU struggled so much.

The good news is, after so little volatility in a year, the following year usually will be much more volatile. For example, the prior yearly low EU trading range was 883 pips back in 1996.  In 1997, the range rose to 2280 pips.  Letís see if this holds true for 2020. :D

The week went very well until Friday, where SFE PA and SFE Attractor got caught by the nasty zigzag on Gold after the NFP. :(

This week also demonstrated how SFE Attractor outperforms SFE PA in this kind of market with less price movements. SFE Stealth and SFE NS also did very well in the asian/late sessions, so it's is very good to see them picking up again.

I also did a few manual trades which didn't go in my favour...maybe it's time for me to give up manual trading for good. :-[

Overall my account ended the week with a small profit. Next week's calendar looks light so I don't expect massive gains, but hopefully SFE NS and SFE Stealth will continue to grind profits out of the market. ;)

Looking at Joel's new posts, it seems like that is a new EA SFE Breakout coming soon. I can't wait to see what Joel has in store for us! ;D

The week was rather quiet as I expected. SFE Stealth had a EURNZD buy trade which went a bit far against it and the EA decided to close the trade with a little over $1000 in loss. SFE NS on the other hand did better and ended the week with about $400 in profit.

SFE PA and SFE Attractor had a few trades that went into small profits but they all eventually ended with SL at around break-even.

I am still waiting for SFE Breakout to be published to add it to the portfolio, but it doesn't appear to be available on Joel's MQL5 product page just yet. SFE Breakout trades a lot less than the other EAs, and there was no new trades from it in the last week anyway. But from I see in the backtest, it can give massive gains when the conditions are right and when market is trending, so I would be happy to just run it and wait patiently for those great days to come. ;)

Next week we will have the CAD/EUR rate decisions and the AUD Employment figures. I can't wait to see more trading actions from the EAs next week! ;D

The week was going ok until Friday when the spike up in Gold triggered trades from SFE Attractor and SFE Breakout, but then the price retraced and most of the trades closed with losses. We still have another -$2.2K floating loss and we shall see how those trades will go next week.

This is the first time SFE Breakout has traded in 2 weeks, and unfortunately the trades did not go in our favour. I guess we will just need to be patient and wait for the next opportunity. ::)

On the other hand, SFE PA, SFE Stealth and SFE NS have all made small profits for the week.

Next week we will have FOMC and BOE decisions, and perhaps the end of month flow next Friday could bring some movements to the market. We shall see. :)

Joel you are right! A big gap up this morning made all the Gold trades hit TP. Now we are already up $4K for the week. Now thatís a good start to the week! 8)

This week was a very good week with nearly $8K in profit! ;D

SFE Stealth, SFE Attractor and SFE Breakout all had good gains while SFE PA was about break-even and SFE NS had a small loss.

SFE Breakout especially made an amazing comeback on Monday morning with the gap up in Gold, and SFE Attractor also had a nice gain from 2x GU buy trades later in the week. SFE Stealth is still doing an amazing job grinding profit out of the market slowly but steadily. 8)

My account is now back above $100K and within striking distance from the previous equity high.

Next week we have RBA rate decision, AUD retail sales, NZD / CAD employment figures and NFP all lined up. I am hopeful that my account will make a new equity high if we can get some nice price actions next week. :)

I should also mention that my SFE Combo Aggressive account has already made more than 20% this year! The account is back above the previous high in terms of closed trades. 8)

Currently this account is running at 0.11 lot per trade as the account balance had reached $5500 in December (my plan is to trade at 0.01 lot for every $500 in balance and continue to increase the lot size as the account grows).

Once the account balance gets above $6000 I will increase the lot size to 0.12 lot per trade to keep its exponential growth going. ;)

Post by: Jimmy on February 07, 2020, 02:18:18 AM
It's really frustrating that EURAUD took out my SL at 1.6260 by 3 pips yesterday (the lowest level reached was 1.6257), and now it's back up nearly 100 pips!

Just my luck I guess. :(

By the way, I have decided to increase the lot size on my SFE Combo account to 2 lots per trade, which will make it trade at the same risk as the SFE Combo Aggressive account for now.

The last good run we had was in July and August last year so it's been about 6 month of stagnation, and I believe we will have another big gain soon.

Once my SFE Combo account makes some good gains I will reduce the risk back down again. :)
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo

yes, this is why manual trading is very difficult, because when situations like this happens, anyone begins to break his own rules a tend to make bad trades. We can't leave emotions apart.

This week was a good week for all the EAs with all of them making some profit. The most frustrating thing was my manual trade got stopped out by 3 pips and I would have had another $6000 in profit now if my trade didn't get stopped out. >:(

Anyway, as Joel said manual trading is very difficult and I have stuck to my rules not to revenge trade. I have increased the lot size on the EAs to 2 lots per trade now and I am confident the EAs will make back the losses for me very soon. ;D

Unfortunately the NFP was another dud and we didn't get much extension on the trades, and lost back the initial floating profits.

Oh well, there is always next week! 8)

Awesome comeback Jimmy ! Some nice manual trades today.

Yes it's been a bit of a wild ride the last few days...after a 6-day losing streak I finally made back over $11K today and my account is back above $100K again :)

Special thanks to SFE Breakout for the great Gold trades, and I also took an extra manual Gold buy trade that added another $5.7K to the profit! ;)

Now that we have recovered most of the losses, we just need some more nice price movements to make a new equity high from here! ;D

By the way, I just checked some other systems, and with the chaos in the market recently, Frero is now in 40% DD and Goldstar is in 60% DD.

Again, it shows the danger of grid systems and also how robust Joel's EAs are...I wonder if they can recover from their DDs this time... ::)

Frero just has hedge the big buy positions as we can see in the decrease of the risk

(https://i.ibb.co/dWZ1h6p/frero.png) (https://ibb.co/5MZt7vj)

he preffers to pay commission and swaps opening a lot of sell positions instead of close the buys, all for keep the balance in uptrend. Is a dirty trick only for keep the newbies followers.

Frero and a lot of other signals last two years, are just applying the grid+martingale concept now that EURUSD moves very narrow.

You can win a lot until the account is wipped from one day to another. And then, begin again with fresh fish.

It was an interesting week - we started with a string of losses and things turned around when Gold had a massive breakout. SFE Breakout managed to catch the initial breakout and my account made a decent gain from it. I also took a manual trade copying SFE Breakout's Gold trade and made additional profit. :)

The only thing I felt bad about was - why didn't I buy more Gold?? :P

On the other hand, it was interesting to see SFE PA had a positive result this week but SFE Attractor had a loss. I think it could be due to the larger price movements this week, which may favour SFE PA. SFE PA also tends to hold trades longer whereas SFE Attractor tends to close trades early when the trades don't go into profit straight away, and can miss out on trades that would eventually continue in the direction of the momentum and hit TP.

SFE NS didn't do so well with the stronger price movements this week which is understandable. Nevertheless SFE Stealth still managed to end the week at about breakeven which shows its ability to avoid large losses in a week with bigger price movements.

Next week the Forex calendar is rather light, but given Friday will be the last trading day in February, and this February has 29 days which only happens every 4 years, I kind of feel there could be some surprise movements as the month draws to a close. The global economy could also be severely impacted by the coronavirus spread, which at the moment still seems unlikely to be contained any time soon. I think that could be the perfect catalyst for some unexpected large price movement in the near future, like what has already happened to Gold.

Will my account finally make a new equity high next week after 6 months of stagnation?...We shall see. ;)

I'm gonna test what happens if I use an US major index to filter dangerous situations. I have the feeling that always that the US stock market moves a lot, strong movements in the currencies happens at the same time.

What a week it was!

The market was very volatile and we saw SFE Stealth had its biggest losing week so far with -$15K.

The good thing is SFE Breakout came to the rescue and made close to $23K for the week, especially selling a large rally on Gold on the last trading day of the month. I kind of knew something was bound to happen at the end of a leap Februrary.  ;) However, SFE Breakout still has some large Gold positions which could give back some of the gains - we will see how it turns out next week.

SFE PA seems to be doing better than SFE Attractor when the market is more volatile, as reflected by another week of gain on SFE PA and loss on SFE Attractor. However SFE Attractor does have a nice Gold sell with good floating profit, and we shall see if it will materialise next week.

I also managed to make some profit from my manual trading for the week. Overall it's a crazy week but I think most things have turned out in our favour except for SFE Stealth. But considering so many other systems also suffered large DDs this week (eg. Forex Cyborg and SCS and HFD systems on Darwinex), or were margin called (eg. Frero and Goldstar), I feel SFE Stealth is actually managing reasonably well.

Anyway, I think it was a great achievement that we survived this week and even came out ahead with profits. It again shows the importance of diversification and not to rely heavily on one type of trading system.

Next week we have many high impact news including AUD and CAD interest rate decisions, AUD GDP/Trade Balance/Retail Sales, CAD employment figures and of course the NFP. I have a strong feeling it may well be the week that SFE PA will finally have another explosive gain, after seeing how volatile the market has become lately.

If things go in our favour I believe we could see 20% gain or more next week...let's see how it goes! :)

It seems like there is always a big loser every week - last week it was SFE Stealth and this week it was SFE Attractor. My account did make a new equity high during the week, but unfortunately it dropped back down again with the large loss on Gold just before the market closed.

SFE Breakout did extremely well to recover the big loss early in the week, while SFE Stealth seems to be back on track with its steady gains.

SFE Night Scalper did very well this week behind the scene quietly, and SFE Pirce Action had a minor loss for the week.

SFE Attractor suffered a big loss on Monday with the EURAUD trades from last week hitting SL on the gap up, and also had another large loss on Gold just in the last few hour of the week. I think it has confirmed my observation that SFE Attractor seems to do worse than SFE PA when the market is much more volatile. Hopefully Joel can find some more improvements on SFE Attractor soon. :)

My manual trading did well this week buying Gold, but I was also very close to being stopped out and suffer a $10K loss yesterday (luckily the price went back up and I got out at break-even). Gold is so volatile to trade - it can give a lot of profits when things go right, but can also give large losses when things go wrong. Overall it is still the most profitable pair for me (nearly $130K gain on my account), so I hope we will continue to grind profit out of the Gold market in the future.

Looking forward, the most important news would be the EUR rate decision next week, and the FOMC rate decision will follow in the week after. With the current volatility we are seeing in the market, I have high hopes that a big gain on my account will happen soon.

PS. I have increased the lot size on my SFE Combo Aggressive account to 0.12 lot per trade now, as the account size had reached $6000 briefly during the week. Unfortunately the large Gold loss happened right after I increased the lot size. :(

Monday we saw a flash crash in AUD, and through the week the coronovirus crisis just kept getting worse. Gold has been sold off heavily as the stock market just kept bleeding and people were getting margin-called. (The stock market did jump back up a bit on Friday but I suspect it's just a dead cat's bounce)

SFE Stealth and SFE NS both suffered this week which is understandable with the volatility. They have been updated to the newest versions this week and with the new volatility filter, we should be able to avoid these losses in the future. For example, the official SFE NS account did not have the loss I had this week as it already had the volatility filter implemented.

SFE Price Action, SFE Attractor and SFE Breakout all had a great week, which is a very strong sign that the market volatility is well and truly back. I am really looking forward to the FOMC next week, which should give us massive gains if the price actions play out in our favour.

I also took a manual Gold sell trade which hit SL and cost me $2K, but it was mainly due to my stop being too tight. Gold actually dropped much lower later on.

I can't wait to watch next week's price actions to unfold! :)

And everyone please stay safe among this coronavirus pandemic, especially those of you in Europe include Joel... it's likely to get a lot worse before it gets better...:-[

Also, I would just like to give a special mention to SFE Price Action.

Many people thought SFE PA was dead but I have always believed it will eventually bounce back at some point when volatility returns.

Guess what? The profit/loss on SFE PA on my SFE Combo account was a bit over -$40K in August 2019, and now this week it has just broken back above positive territory!

(https://i.imgur.com/12506dr.png)

and with the current volatility in the market, I believe SFE PA will break back above the previous equity high on the official SFE PA account very soon:

(https://i.imgur.com/xkmf8us.jpg)

I have a strong feeling that the decisive break higher from this stagnation period since July 2017 is imminent, and it may happen as soon as next week with the FOMC rate decision - let's see if my prediction would be correct. 8)
Title: Re: Jimmy's Account - SFE Combo
Post by: Jimmy on March 17, 2020, 10:41:30 PM
So far this week has been a bit dull as FOMC made the rate change before the market opened, and there is no more FOMC on Wednesday. :'(

I had about 6% loss on one Gold trade last night because I am still trading 2 lots per trade on my SFE Combo account so the loss is much larger with Gold because it moves so much, and my accountís base currency AUD is so much weaker now.

I have now changed the setting on my SFE Combo account to:

Min. Virtual Balance - $150000
SFE Attractor - 1% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 1% risk per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 2% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 2% risk per trade
SFE Price Action is also reduced to 1.5 Lot per trade while waiting for the new version.

I am leaving the SFE Combo Aggressive account at $500 per 0.01 lot for now. After all, it is supposed to be an aggressive account with high risk. ;D

This week's FOMC took place even before the market opened, and as a result we missed all the price action following the massive USD rate cut. :-[

Nevertheless, SFE Price Action is the star of the week! It made a massive gain on 2 EURAUD trades and the official SFE PA account has now made a new equity high as I predicted! (though not in the way that I thought it would happen - I thought it would make a new equity high from FOMC but instead SFE PA did it with just 2 trades! :P)

Attractor and Night Scalper suffered quite a bit of losses this week, but the diversification with all the EAs means my account still made $4.6K this week overall. I am sure Attractor and Night Scalper will make back the losses eventually. :)

It's a happy end to the week with both my SFE Combo and SFE Combo Aggressive accounts reaching new equity high!

Given that the SFE Price Action official account has now reached a new equity high, I am now going to reduce the risk of all the EAs on my SFE Combo account back to the recommended normal risk:

Min Virtual Balance - $100000
SFE Attractor - 0.6% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 1% risk per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 2% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 3% risk per trade
SFE Price Action lot size will be reduced to 1 Lot per trade while waiting for the new version (which will have the new risk % per trade feature).

Next week we have Europe PMIs, BOE rate decision and US employment claims...could be another interesting week to watch ::)

Finally, let me finish with a few nice screenshots:

It's been a boring week so far...not much price action at all, even with the UK and US data releases yesterday. :(

Nevertheless, the good news is that I have just created a new account called SFE Combo EVO - they will still run the same SFE Combo EAs that I use, but will be trading with the new Risk Per Trade feature that has been made available with Joel's improvements on the EAs in the Evolution FX package. I have deposited $10K in this new account to start with, and will gradually add more funds over time.

The settings:

Min Virtual Balance - $10000 (which will be increased as the account size grows)
SFE Attractor - 0.6% risk per trade
SFE Price Action - 0.7% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 1% risk per trade

It helps me to understand real function regards new risk/trade feature.
I set risk/trade feature on my $10K account.
But my mt4 has many other EAs. And leverage is 1:25.
So, I set risk value 0.1. this is because scary.

But your new account set it as recommended percentage.
Always thanks Jimmy. Your info is always useful.

You are welcome. I am glad you find my accounts helpful. :)

The SFE Combo EVO account will be running at quite a bit higher risk than the SFE Evolution FX official account because all the EAs will be running at recommended normal risk and not in 70%/30% combinations like the official account. I also set a min virtual balance which will cause a bigger DD, but also a faster recovery.

I estimate the potential DD for the SFE Combo EVO account could be up to 50-60%, because each individual EA has max DD of around 15-20%, but when I run all the 5 EAs together, the diversification should reduce the overall DD so it should be much less than 75-100%.

The market is also a lot more volatile nowadays so I expect we should make some decent gains before we experience another major DD. I guess time will tell. :)

This week's news releases failed to make any meaningful movements in the Forex market...USD didn't really move anywhere even with an NFP number of -701K :(

People say it is probably because the numbers are so out of range that the market just don't know how to trade them, which may be true. Also these numbers would be lagging behind by a few weeks so they do not reflection the real numbers right now. So I suppose we will just have to wait for some more numbers to come out before the market will start moving again.

Next week we will have RBA rate decision, ECB Minutes, Canada and US unemployment numbers and US CPI. Let's see if the market will finally start moving...it's been a very boring 2 weeks for the SFE EAs. :-\

As an aside, I made large gains on my manual trade this week mainly due to a trade I took which was based the trade levels of an SFE Attractor EURAUD trade. I was very lucky that I mistyped the lot size to be "12" instead of the "2" that I intended, and the trade went into profit straight away...just goes to show that you can still get lucky in Forex sometimes! ;D

Weekly Result - 6th Apr 2020 to 10th Apr 2020

Total: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?#week)
+$1510.74 (with +$264.14 floating profit)

SFE Stealth: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=300051-300151#week)
+$195.38

SFE Price Action: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=400051-450601#week)
+$215.68

SFE Attractor: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=510051-510605#week)
+$735.21

SFE Night Scalper: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=710051-710302#week)
No Trade

SFE Breakout: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=270051-270302#week)
+$291.47

Manual Trade: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=0#week)
+$73.00

This week was very quiet until Thursday when there was a breakout due to new USD weakness on the announcement that Federal Reserve will provide up to $2.3 trillion in loans to support the economy. SFE PA, SFE Attractor and SFE Breakout all jumped aboard and made small profit. A few trades actually hit SL at breakeven early on and missed out on the potential gains. We still have 2 trades with small floating profit which I believe will likely hit TPs next week.

With my manual trades I lost about $5K trying to buy EURAUD which just kept falling throughout the week. Fortunately I was able to recover the losses copying SFE EAs' trades and buying EU, AU and GU. My manual trades managed to end at around break-even for the week.

Next week we have USD Retails Sales, CAD rate decision, AUD Employment Change/Unemployment Rate and Chinese GDP to come, and they will be interesting to watch.

Overall I would still say the price action in the Forex market is still very subdued in the past 3 weeks, as there has been no significant impulse triggering trades from the price action based EAs, except this Thursday. Hopefully the market will start moving more as more figures come out from different countries, which will give the market a clearer idea on how the world's economy has really been affected by the coronavirus over the past few weeks.

Weekly Result - 13th Apr 2020 to 17th Apr 2020

+$80.11

Manual Trade: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=0#week)
+$1360.60

We had some price movements this week but they were not strong enough to be profitable for SFE Price Action. Nevertheless, SFE Attractor managed to extract some profits out of the smaller price movements.

Similarly, SFE Stealth also performed better than SFE Night Scalper given the smaller price movements throughout the week.

SFE Breakout had an EU buy trade early in the week which amazingly managed to hit TP after missing the SL by just 0.2 pips, but it had another losing USDCHF buy trade later in the week which gave back the gains.

My manual trades made an overall small gain for this week, which helped my account to trim the loss to just -$435.49 to end the week.

Going forward, next week is looking rather quiet on the calendar. I believe most of the price actions will happen in the week after next, where we will have FOMC, ECB and NFP all happening within a 2-day period. It's likely that the SFE EAs will be able to make decent gains from the expected volatility when it comes. ;)

Until then, please stay safe and healthy at home. :)

Hi guys,

Some of you may have noticed that I have withdrawn a significant amount of funds out of the SFE Combo account. That is because I have decided to open new MT5 accounts so that I can trade SFE Stock Market along with the other SFE EAs in order to compound the growth even more.

I have setup 2 new MT5 accounts and their setups are as follows:

SFE Stock Combo EVO 1x Risk
SFE Stock Market - 2% risk per trade, 10 trades max
SFE Attractor - 0.6% risk per trade
SFE Price Action - 0.7% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 1% risk per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 2% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 3% risk per trade

I have relocated most of my funds into this account because I believe it will give the most growth 8)

SFE Stock Combo EVO 0.5x Risk
SFE Stock Market - 1% risk per trade, 10 trades max
SFE Attractor - 0.3% risk per trade
SFE Price Action - 0.35% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 0.5% risk per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 1% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 1.5% risk per trade

This is a lower risk account for people to follow on how the EAs would perform at a lower risk setting.

With SFE Combo now having about $3.6K left in the account, the new setting will be:

SFE Combo
Min Virtual Balance - $5000 (essentially trading at around 1.38x recommended risk)
SFE Attractor - 0.6% risk per trade
SFE Price Action - 0.7% risk per trade
SFE Breakout - 1% risk per trade
SFE Night Scalper - 2% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 3% risk per trade
and some Manual Trades

I am really looking forward to SFE Stock Market to resume trading and I will also add SFE Trend once it is published. ;D

P.S. we had a bit of losses so far this week but they are actually good signs that volatility is picking up. I believe we should have plenty of price action next week with all the high impact news releases, and there is a very good chance we should make some decent gains next week. ;)

Hi guys,

There will no longer be a weekly summary for the SFE Combo account from now on, as I have relocated most of my funds to set up a new $100K portfolio running different combinations of the SFE EAs. I wanted to set up this new portfolio so that we can see what the SFE EAs are capable of, without manual intervention. I am very excited to see how much this portfolio will grow in a year's time! ;D

The new weekly summary will now include a screenshot of my new $100K portfolio at the end of each week. You can check the individual accounts by clicking the links in my forum signature. :)

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 20th Apr 2020 to 24th Apr 2020

Weekly Change: -$2118.50
Total Portfolio Return: -$1303.27 (-1.3%)


We had minor losses this week, mostly due to some price actions that did not have enough momentum to sustain a breakout.

It's exciting to see SFE Stock Market to start trading again and it will be interesting to see how much they will add to my portfolio's growth. ;)

Next week is a big week with FOMC, ECB and NFP all happening between Wednesday to Friday. It could be a week where the SFE price action EAs will make massive gains. We shall see... 8)

As for my SFE Combo account, it is still running but it will now just be a small account running the SFE EAs and I will still do some manual trading at times. SFE Combo lost about $2.4K this week, and the % loss is about 10% because I took a few manual trades that hit SLs with the now much smaller account. :'(

I have grouped SFE Combo with my old personal account in another portfolio on Myfxbook to show their legacy of making over $330K in profit over the last few years, thanks to the SFE EAs and my manual trading (which is largely based on the SFE EA's anyway). Nevertheless, moving forward, I am sure the new $100K portfolio will also continue to deliver in the years to come! :D

Yes you know me very well, thatís exactly the idea. 8)

I have been very lucky on a few occasions recently where my manual trades nearly hit full SL and I would have lost a few thousand dollars but they managed to bounce back to break-even or even hit TP.

I am a bit concerned that at some stage I will face a string of losses with my manual trades and it seems that has already happened to some extent with this weekís DD on SFE Combo (luckily the account is much smaller now so the 10% loss on SFE Combo this week was only -$2K instead of -$10K!).:P

In the long term, my manual trades that are based on SFE EAsí trades may still be profitable, but I feel it would now be safer not to risk a large account on my manual trades. Therefore I have decided to run nearly all of my fund on SFE EAs without manual intervention from now on. The growth may be a bit slower but I am sure this will be the much safer option for the future. :)

And yes I have left SFE Combo running so I can try out some manual trades when my fingers feel itchy. ;D

It has just come to my attention that NFP this Friday has been moved to next week.

So this week we will have FOMC and ECB, and next week we will have RBA/BOE rate decisions, NZ/CAD employment figures and NFP...it certainly will be a very interesting fortnight ahead 8)

Below is an old screenshot I took on April 17th which showed NFP was supposed to be on this Friday, but somehow it has since been moved to next week. Oh well, perhaps thatís not a bad thing as now it may well give us 2 weeks of good volatility until the news is over. :)

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 27th Apr 2020 to 1st May 2020

NB: I have noticed that there is significant discrepancy between the balance and the profit shown for the MT5 accounts (ie. the bottom 2 accounts running SFE Stock Market EA). For example, with the SFE Stock Combo EVO 1x Risk account, the balance is now $51514.36, but the profit is only listed as $384.41, which should have been $1514.36. Therefore, to get the correct Weekly Change figure from now on, I will simply use This week's ending balance - Last week's ending balance.

Weekly Change: $102675.35 - $98899.04 = +$3776.31
Total Portfolio Return: +$2675.35 / +2.68%
(with -2.74% floating loss)

This week was an interesting ride...we suffered quite a bit of loss on Thursday but then managed to recover with some profits on Friday. My SFE Combo Aggressive account was hit hard by 3x fixed lot SFE PA Gold trades on Thursday, but also made a lot of profit back from 2x fixed lot SFE Breakout Gold trades which recovered the losses...so I guess the high risk I took with fixed lot on Gold worked both ways. :P

The equity of my $100K portfolio is nearly back to break-even and the floating losses are mainly due to the stock trades. I hope the stocks will manage to go back higher soon. :)

Next week we will have RBA and BOE rate decisions, NZ and CAD employment change figures, and most importantly the NFP. It should be another good week for volatility and I can't wait for the price actions! ;D

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 4th May 2020 to 8th May 2020

Weekly Change: $99276.99 - $102675.35 = -$3398.36
Total Portfolio Return: -$723.01 / -0.72%
(with +0.65% floating profit)

This week was a bit disappointing...NFP didn't deliver the expected volatility and we had multiple losses on Gold throughout the week. The SFE Combo Aggressive account was particularly hit hard with the Gold trades due to the fixed lot setting. SFE PA also suffered quite a bit and the official SFE PA account is now at 12.4% DD after making the most recent equity high.

The good news is that the stocks have picked up and we now have a small floating profit thanks to the SFE Stock Market trades.

Next week we have a few figures coming out of UK, NZ, AU and the US. But given even the NFP doesn't move the market much nowadays, I am not really sure what we should be expecting with the high impact news now...

Oh well, I am sure Joel's EAs will continue to do their job, and we will get out of this stagnation period eventually. :)

Weekly Change: $99984.40 - $99276.99 = +$707.41
Total Portfolio Return: -$15.20 / -0.01%
(with -2.08% floating loss)

This week we made a small gain overall. It's also good to see that the new addition SFE Trend made its first trade this week which reached TP. :)

SFE PA opened a basket of trades on EURUSD and USDCHF on Friday which is in a slight DD at the moment. The setup still seems valid and we will see if the trades will go into profit next week.

Next week seems somewhat quiet in terms of forex news events, so I am not holding much expectations, but if our current basket can reach their TPs then we could finish the week with some gains. 8)

The most important news for the forum this week is that it is now possible to copy my main account SFE Stock Market + Evolution FX 100% on both MT5 and MT4. If it is copied on MT4 then it just becomes SFE Evolution FX 100% Risk without the Stock trades. The price is also cheaper for MT4 because it doesn't include Stock trades.

You can see more details on how to subscribe to the signal here: https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=568.msg1242#msg1242

Hi Guys,

After seeing the gains on the Stock Market EA and SFE Trend in the last few days, I have decided to consolidate my accounts in order to maximise the potential gain.

Therefore, I have relocated the funds from the other 3 smaller accounts into my MT5 accounts, and those smaller accounts have now been closed. I will now only have 2 accounts - SFE Stock Market + SFE Evolution FX 100% Risk and SFE Stock Market + SFE Evolution FX 50% Risk going forward from here. This is how my $100K portfolio looks like now:

By the way, I have also just turned my previous SFE Combo account into SFE Evolution FX running at 150% Balance risk.

Now, please be aware that this level of risk is definitely not recommended! This account will also not be a part of my $100K portfolio, but I would just really like to see how far the account can grow at this level of risk, and it will offer an interesting comparison to my two other MT5 accounts running at 100% and 50% Balance risk. :)

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 18th May 2020 to 22nd May 2020

Weekly Change: $106154.01 - $99984.40 = +$6169.61
Total Portfolio Return: +$6154.01 / +6.15% (with +1.28% floating profit)

SFE Stock Market was the star performer this week, closing 3 winning trades and 1 losing trade with a total gain of around $3500 on my 100% Risk account.

SFE Trend also did very well to hit TP on 3 out of 3 trades, giving a total profit of about $1600 on my 100% Risk account for the week.

These 2 EAs accounted for most of the gains this week, and the other EAs pretty much just cancelled each other's gains and losses out.

It's amazing how the Stock Market EA is performing, and my account has grown quite well even without a strong performance from the Forex EAs yet. I am not sure how long the good run on Stock Market EA will continue, but I will certainly enjoy it while it's still going! ;D I also expect much more growth when all the Forex EAs start to kick in and deliver profits as well. ;)

Next week we don't have too many high impact data releases, but we will have speeches from the BOC governor, the ECB president and the Fed chairman. You just never know...they could potentially make some comments that will rock the Forex market...let's wait and see. :)

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 25th May 2020 to 29th May 2020

Weekly Change: $113272.91 - $106154.01 = +$7118.90
Total Portfolio Return: +$13272.91 / +13.27% (with +6.53% floating profit)

What a week for the Stock Market EA again! The Stock Market EA made around $7.5K this week while the Forex EAs ended with a small loss overall. We also still have a basket of Stock trades that are in good profit and may hit their TPs next week. ;)

We had a basket of EURUSD buy trades on Wednesday which unfortunately experienced a nasty whip-saw action that took out our trades before the EU pair eventually went higher, otherwise we would have made very good profits with the Forex EAs this week as well. Sometimes these things happen and you can only be patient and wait for the next opportunity to come. :)

Therefore, this week's growth was really all due to the gains from the Stock Market EA, without the Forex EAs making significant gains. This is actually very promising, because the Forex EAs have already been in a stagnation/drawdown period for over 2 months now. Knowing how the cycles work, I believe the Forex EAs will pick up again soon to compound the growth of my accounts. It surely will be a spectacular sight when that happens! ;D

Also, due to the lack of public interest in my signal, I have decided to close it to new subscriptions when the Market opens again on Monday. It just seems a bit silly for me to offer this signal for $100-120 per month when I have already made over $13000 trading with it. At the same time, I still want to offer people an opportunity to experience the amazing power of Joel's EAs. So if there is still anyone out there interested in my signal, please sign up before this weekend ends, after which it will be closed to new subscriptions until further notice.

Have a nice weekend guys! :D

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 1st June 2020 to 5th June 2020

Weekly Change: $118864.77 - $113272.91 = +$5591.86
Total Portfolio Return: +$18864.77 / +18.86% (with +1.07% floating profit)

We had a very good start to the week where we made nearly $15K in the first 3 days, then we had a nasty whipsaw on Thursday's ECB which gave us heavy loss and lost back all the profit. Then on Friday we had 2 decent TPs from the stock trades that gave us a little more than $5.3K in profit.

So overall, the Forex EAs were about break-even for this week, whereas the Stock Market EA has yet again given my account another boost of over $5K in profit. The market seems to have more movements now after ECB and NFP, and it should just be a matter of time until the price action based Forex EAs (SFE KISS, SFE Price Action and SFE Attractor) score their next big win. Let's see if they can do it with the FOMC decision next week! 8)

SFE $100K Portfolio Weekly Result - 8th June 2020 to 12th June 2020

Weekly Change: $116842.80 - $118864.77 = -$2021.97 (-1.7%)
Total Portfolio Return: +$16842.80 / +16.84% (with -2.28% floating loss)

After 2 consecutive weeks of gains, we had a slightly losing week this week.

We had some price movements from FOMC but it was not enough to produce a clean breakout for us to make profit, and the Stock EA also lost some profit back this week after the optimism in the market turned sour in the last few days.

The good news is Joel has improved the Stock Market EA even more and we should expect plenty more profit to come from the Stock Market EA in the future. The SFE Evolution FX EA was also updated this week with new improved version of SFE Price Action and SFE Trend which will improve profitability and reduced risk.

It has been a bit difficult to make profit from high impact news lately (both ECB and FOMC did not produce favourable price actions), so we will just have to wait patiently until the market gives us the next big breakout - whenever and however it may happen. ::)

The market has been a bit quiet again this week. We ended this week with a small gain and most of the profits came from SFE Night Scalper and SFE Stealth.

There won't be many high impact news next week, so it may take a little more time before the price action based EAs make their next big gain...but I am sure the day will come eventually. 8)

We suffered some losses early in the week due to a whipsaw caused by a comment made by a US official that the US deal with China was over, only for that to be denied later...

Other than that it was a pretty boring week. :-\

Next week we don't have many news apart from the NFP on Friday. However with daily coronavirus cases in the US hitting all-time high, and with the month of June and the financial year in Australia drawing to a close, I believe there is a good chance that we will see more volatility (and thus profits for our price action based EAs) in the market next week.

Post by: Jimmy on July 01, 2020, 06:38:21 AM
Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first day of July! Today also marks a new financial year in Australia and I have some updates about a few significant changes to my Forex portfolio:

1. I have decided to retire all my personal accounts on Myfxbook (https://www.myfxbook.com/en/members/jimmy8378 - see screenshot below). I have made a little over $330K from my personal trading since 2016, and it is time for me to start a new venture. :)

(https://i.imgur.com/qj7zR1D.jpg)

2. I have decided to establish SFE Trading as a business - from now on I will be trading the 100% Risk account at IC Markets and a new MAM account I just opened at Pepperstone under my company, SFE Trading Pty Ltd (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/SFETrading - see screenshot below). I have also just closed my 50% Risk and 30% Risk accounts and moved the funds into the new Pepperstone MAM account. This Peppertsone MAM account will be copying trades from the 100% Risk IC Markets account with a 0.3x risk multiplier (ie. at 30% risk). My future trading plan is that once the IC Markets account reaches over $100K in balance, I will move any extra profits into the MAM account for reduced risk and long term growth.

Please also note that the Pepperstone MAM account is not yet accepting new clients - we will need a few more months of track record before we can apply for an AFSL (Australian Finance Services Licence) to become licensed, before we can offer it to the public. However, due to the strict regulations in Australia, even after we become licensed, we will only be able to accept Wholesale clients - which means you will need to have either over A$2.5 million in assets or an annual income over A$250,000 per year to be able to join this MAM.

(https://i.imgur.com/NbGlwkq.jpg)

3. If you prefer not to wait to join the MAM, or if you won't meet the Wholesale client criteria, you can choose to copy my trades with the SFE Trade Receiver and pay a fortnightly 30% performance fee instead (with this setup we are just offering a trade copy service for an agreed fee, and you will still have full control of your own trading account).

If you have any questions, always feel free to PM me on the SFE Community Telegram. :)

That's it guys. Thanks for all your support and let's see the SFE community continue to grow! :D

Hi Guys,

This week is still a bit quiet, but we have managed to end the week with a small gain. We are basically just waiting for the next big breakout in the market, in order to make the next big gain. ::)

Also, as I have mentioned in the previous post, I will now just be running 2 accounts - one for Trade Copy Signal (100% Risk) and one for MAM (30% Risk). The maximum expected DD for the Signal (running at 100% Risk) is in the order of 50-60% - so when you copy the Signal, please make sure you adjust the risk multiplier according to your own risk tolerance.

The MAM account is not yet open to the public, but you can subscribe to my Trade Copy Signal in the following ways:

Hi Guys,

This week my accounts ended with -$1.8K loss in total, mainly due to a Stock trade on the IC Markets account that lost -$2.4K in one trade :(

We still have a few Stock trades open and hopefully they will make some profits for us. :)

On the Forex front, we have a lot of major news coming up next week:

(https://i.imgur.com/YZZbZFT.jpg)

I expect a lot of volatility next week, and therefore there is a good chance for our price action based EAs (SFE Price Action, SFE Attractor, SFE KISS, and to some extent SFE Breakout) to make nice profits next week.

If you have been watching my accounts for a while, I believe now is best time to join - we have been in stagnation for some time, and with the high impact new and expected volatility next week, I believe my accounts are very likely to reach the next new equity high soon. ;)

Also, I have now listed both my Signal and MAM accounts on Social Trader Tools:

Smart Forex Expert Signal (100% Risk):
https://my.socialtradertools.com/view/07ea4cfa4067f1801f52133c8c768825

Smart Forex Expert MAM (30% Risk):
https://my.socialtradertools.com/view/a61e437f0054c600ea0afa8805f99e14

Some people have been asking me about when the MAM will be open to the public, and the answer is at least a few months - until we have enough track record to demonstrate its long term safety and performance in order to get the AFSL licence to accept clients. However, even when we can start to accept clients, we will only be able to accept Wholesale clients (ie. Net assets >A$2.5 million, or annual income >A$250,000). So if you don't meet the Wholesale client criteria, the only way to access the MAM account will be through Social Trader Tools - which will charge 30% performance fee for copying the trades, with a small monthly fee of $20 for using their platform.

The benefit with the Social Trader Tools platform is that everything will be automated on the website and you won't even need to run a VPS to copy the trades - so this can be a potential saving for those who don't need a VPS to run MT4/5 terminals for other EAs.

This week we had losses from SFE Stealth, SFE Trend and SFE Stock market, and the ECB was more or less a non-event so the price action based EAs did not make any meaningful trades. The good news is we still have over $3K in floating profit from several Stock trades, which hopefully will close in profit next week.

Looking ahead in the Forex calendar, next week is pretty quiet, and then we will have FOMC in the last week of July followed by many high impact news in the first week of August. Those 2 weeks should be the next opportunity for the price actions based EAs to get into action and make some nice profits. :)

We had a very good week and made nearly $9K in profit, but currently we also have about $4.5K in floating loss.

I am very excited to see what the next 2 weeks will bring us. As you can see in the Forex Calendar below, there are many high impact news coming and I believe it really is about time for the price action based EAs to make some decent gains. :)

We made another $5K in profit this week, and we are just a stone's throw away from making a new equity high.

With next week's busy Forex Calendar (see below), there is a very good chance we will get there. We also ended July with about $9K in gains so it was a good month. :)

On Telegram, Joel has just released a new list of Stock symbols suitable for IC Market so I will update the list this weekend. The same list will be used for Pepperstone unless the Stock is not available there.

What a way to start the month!

Everything went according to plan and we did make a new equity high on Friday after the NFP, as I predicted. 8)

The Forex market still didn't react much to the NFP, but we had a nice Stock trade on Biogen which gave us $4000 profit in one trade on the gap up at the Stock market open. You certainly don't see that everyday! ;D

Next week we have a moderate amount of high impact news, and we still have numerous stocks trades which hopefully will generate more profit for us. ;)

I have also added several follower accounts under my Myfxbook profile, which shows the performance is well replicated on follower accounts:

Thank you for the report as always Jimmy!

No problem Joel, thank you so much for your great products!

I will also add the new Gold Fever EA to my IC Markets account this weekend. It will trade at 1% Risk per trade. :)

Also for those who are thinking about joining the signal, I have decided to run a little promotion here to celebrate my account making a new equity high this week. I will cover the $20 account hosting fee charged by Social Trader Tools for the first month, for the next 10 people that sign up within the next week. Once you have made the first $20 monthly payment to Social Trader Tools, just forward me a copy of the Paypal receipt to my email at SFETrading@hotmail.com and I will reimburse you. :)

I don't feel like writing too much today because I am quite disappointed with how other people treat you in the Forex world.

I am the only vendor I know of that can actually post fully verified accounts hosted at large, reputable and regulated brokers, and even provide a live stream to show my accounts in real-time.

Yet other vendors and forum members attack me because I get in the way of their business, and inexperienced traders don't join us because they don't like how our signals look - because we actually accept losses and close losing trades! They would rather join hold and pray or marty/grid systems that only close winning trades/baskets and have nice looking straight growth lines - but as we know all those systems will inevitably crash in the end.

I have set up the signals because I want to help people to finally make money in the Forex market, because they have worked for me for over 4 years and are still going strong. However it is very disheartening when you make the best effort to help people and they don't appreciate it.

From now on I will just focus on trading my own accounts and make money for myself, just like I have done since 2016 with my personal accounts:

I will just post weekly results without comments from now on.

Have a nice weekend.

Hey mate I would say that is a good idea. At the end of the day just focus on yourself and then the good people will come to you. Don't worry about the trolls. It's not worth your time. Results are good. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words :)

I still feel it's better for me to just post results without comments from now on, and let the numbers do the talking.

Somehow I feel the more good things I say about Joel's system the more people think I am a scammer. I've done all that I can to try and help people beat the Forex market, and if they don't believe me then there is nothing more I can do. People can decide for themselves if they believe in the system or not.

After all, I will make much more money just trading the system myself, rather than wasting time trying to save people that don't want to be saved. ;)
