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.

Aaarrghhh this is really annoying. I saw the update on Telegram about new highs and thought that's weird. the I saw Jimmy account and the master account and there are about 7 Gold short trades, but both of my accounts with 2 different brokers only have 2 trades??!?!

This is really sucking as I got all the losing trads but now I don't get the big profits. How can I check why this has happened?? I have the same broker IC markets, and a fast VPS. This shoulnd't be happening.

Also the only way i can check is to check Jimmy's account because this one from Joel is set to open trades private. It's very hard to compare and discover when there is a problem.

damn.... I don't want to find excuses, but I think that some kind of situation out of the EA control has happened because in all my accounts in icmarkets and even in accounts with other brokers (tickmill and darwinex) I have all the orders, and have been a strong and clean movement, so, is not this kind of situation where for a little difference in the timing or the prices the orders are opened or not.

(I just connected the 'show open orders' in the myfxbook account.)

Then, and sharing this annoying, I post some of the problems that sometimes has affected the normal trading, maybe some of this happend or maybe is other thing, but for share the experience and knnowledge:

- sometimes, for unknow reason, the platform don't receive the prices, this can be minutes to hours, and this happens from time to time, I think this is a broker server problem, and when happens, happens, and you can't do nothing until the server is up again.

- sometimes is the mt4 platform which have some kind of freeze, this can happens if the vps resources are at full, using for example 100% of the processor or the memory. with ctrl+alt+sup we can open the threads monitor to see the resources used at this moment.
A way to notice that the vps is collapsed at resources levels, is for example see the hour in the market watch, when the vps is collapsed, you can see for example that market watch shows a big retard in his clock, for example showing 13:23 when the real hour is 13:40. This means that the platform is not processing the candles at time, and unexpected results can happen.

I have found that the last issue can be solved in great part only doing this:

** For decrease the resource needed by mt4, remember to reduce the number of bars on history and charts. And also leave on the market watch only the symbols needed to run the EAs.

Doing this, I launch up to 6 mt4 platforms on each VPS I have without problems.

- last thing, check the hard disk free space, we have to be sure that is not out of space.

Will the old version still work if I don't want to upgrade it on my VPS?

I have never upgraded before and whenever I press the "market" tab on MT4 the terminal just shuts down. So I don't know why this is happening, besides I don't want to trade any GBP before this election next week or over Chritmas/New year so maybe I can just update halfway through January? Is this an option???

It's really annoying. On my desktop MT4 can open the "market" tab on my MT4 it is just on my VPS. So I have to discover what is the problem. But it's definitely not the EA it is obviously something with my VPS.

i have had that issue once before as well. i think this command requires large resources and you might run out of ram.

try shutting down all other mt4 or whatever else is running, then when only one mt4 is running try again.


For decrease the resource needed by mt4, remember to reduce the number of bars on history and charts. And also leave on the market watch only the symbols needed to run the EAs.

Yes you can use the 1.0 version while not upgrading.
Probably the most easy way to solve this in your VPS is installing a fresh metrader on other directory and try what happens.
Anyway remember, you are free to remove GBP pairs form the list for the moment, then you are 100% sure that any GBP trade will be opened.

thanks for the update.

can version 1 run next to 1.1 ?? since there is no magic number input i am not so sure.

one point of concern i have is a regards eurnzd, it had massive spikes sometimes on sunday open in years past, most n pairs, gn even more so which i know the ea does not trade.

is 1.1 coded so it wont trade eurnzd over the weekend ??

Thank you for participate here.
Is better wait for don't have opened trades to update. The magic is the same, but if for example in the previous version a symbol exists in the list and now have been removed, then is not handled. But in this case I think all the symbols are also now in the version 1.1. But in general, better wait for don't have trades.

The EURNZD question. It's true, but now I'm working and backtesting with metrader 5 with real ticks. In general, these spikes are only heavy open of the spreads, up to 40 pips for example, then, these ugly spreads of the first minutes of the opening in sunday night, are handled, and after 30-40 minutes, things are normal again.

During these spikes, when are related to big spreads, the EA don't do nothing opening or closing the trades, and waits for better conditions.

While in Night Scalper open trades on friday afternoon is removed, in STE is connected, because backtest says that are very favourable trades in the mid / long term, but in exchange, we have to suffer some stress during the weekend and in the opening of the week while the spreads are high.

If you or someone is not conformtable with this pair for example, you can remove it form the least, is only one between a lot.

To send a calm message, at final, the expositon to a single symbol is not very high, then, from time to time, we will be caught in a very bad single trade, but as we can see, these EA can growth day by day in general, then, in few days or weeks at most, the DD should be recovered.

Hi,
the final look of the recently published version 1.1 is this:

BACKTESTED IN METRATRADER 5 WITH REAL TICKS



The current size ratio for normal risk is 0.01 lots / 400 USD of balance. In my EUR account, I will be a bit more conservative using 0.01 lots / 400 EUR.

- a new internal filter condition has removed some non profitable setups, about 7% of the old setups. This increase the profit factor significantly.

- some of the best symbols also launch some trades using the m15 timeframe. As always, is handled from only one m5 chart. I expect more improvements in this timeframe in future versions.

- the selection of pairs has been reviewed using metatrader 5 with real ticks. I have been able finally to use the 'real ticks' option during the backtest.

- the feature of connect to the smartforexexpert for see if some symbols are disabled in this moment for some reason, has been expanded with the option of apply different size of the trades in the selected symbols.

Using this feature, I make a difference between the pairs I like more (0.21 size in the image), in front some pairs I want to follow but I have less confidence right now (0.05 size in the image).
At same time, the pairs with 0.08 in the image, are the related with the Brexit.
This don't mean that some days, I will disable totally some pairs, but in general, right now, I like the idea to left them enabled with less size, this way I can follow his performance and find improvements.



Remember that for receive these different size multipliers the same I have in my signal, you have to add the adress:   https://smartforexexpert.com to the list of 'allow web request'

- I have a big hope that my future plans of add the historical calendar to the backtest, will increase the performance significantly in general, so, some pairs that at this moment have problems, can be attractive again.

- The day of the tripple swap is detected automatically for if some broker don't apply this on wednesday night.

Hi I am trading your signal for stealth which I assume is now the latest version - a few questions:

Do you take into account important news events such as the UK election Oct 12th? NFP FOMC etc?

The XAUUSD is showing approx 1 million pips on your BT but only $800 yearly profit - which is way lower than the current live trade history to date - do you think it will really be this low going forward or is it a conversion ( pip to USD) error?

Keep up the great work!

Pete, UK.

You have to remove 1 zero to compare the XAU information in myfxbook. If you see 4.000, really is 400 pips. This explains this strange relation with pips and profit actually.
In 2020, one of my goals is connect the calendar to the EAs and take decisions in relation to the calendar. At this moment, in SFE NS and SFE STE, where the new events are dangerous, we are using a kind of semi automated control, where I touch the sizes of the symbols if we have to face a big event. But I have to automatize.

I will explain this better in the next message, where I explain the new version.

Hi,
I am interested to buy this EA, but first will test myfxbook signals.
Unfortunately, good EA's dont last too long.
And those that last for years do so by almost always taking massive DD, which is undesirable.
Anyway, hope yours continues. Time will tell.

Regarding stops, what is the risk % at myfxbk signals?

Thanks.

Hi, thank you for join to the forum.
The signal in myfxbook is the same account of mql5. And works with the 'recommended' risk. Where the normal DD whould be around 10-15%.
But as far I know, if you follow some signal in myfxbook with autotrade, you can choose your risk multiplier in relation to the master account.
myfxbook autotrade can be good for test, but at mid long term, you pay a lot of commissions for use autotrade, and this 'eats' major part of the profit.

Haha watching the EA trade this Trump HK bill signing is interesting. I closed straight away Stealth EA shorts. Walked the dog and came home and saw that now Attractor has sold EA. My inclination is to close the shorts in loss right now but I will let it run. I am surprised that EURAUD got low enough for Attractor to decide to sell. Looks like atrap to me let's see who is smarter in the end me or the robot!!!

I think you will find that you will be right 90-95% of the time. ;D

Most of Joelís price action EAsí trades end up with small losses or break even. Only a small number of trades will actually catch a big movement and hit TP. But as we have seen, we only need that those movements to happen 3-4 times a year for the system to be profitable. We just need to wait patiently for those big days to come. :)

Yes, major part of setups will end in loses, the important is not be much far of the previous high, to break it in the next good movement.

I have been working also in Attractor last days, but I still need some more time.

Good news

The version 1.1 will be published very soon. I'm using already this version in the main signal of the EA, so, until the publication, the trades of the signal can differ a bit from you current trades.

MT5 backtest with realt tick:  https://c.mql5.com/31/380/SFE_Stealth_R110_Preview.zip

These are the improvements:

- a new internal filter condition has removed some non profitable setups, about 7% of the old setups. This increase the profit factor significantly.

- some of the best symbols also launch some trades using the m15 timeframe. As always, is handled from only one m5 chart. I expect more improvements in this timeframe in future versions.

- the selection of pairs has been reviewed using metatrader 5 with real ticks. I have been able finally to use the 'real ticks' option during the backtest.

- in the backtest, you can see less symbols than the version 1.0, this is because some pairs has shown not enough profitable when bactkest with 'real ticks' has been used. This don't mean that this pairs will be removed definetely, I will explain later.

- the feature of connect to the smartforexexpert for see if some symbols are disabled in this moment for some reason, has been expanded with the option of apply different size of the trades in the selected symbols. This is because I think is better use some pairs at lower size instead of not use them, in this way, we can keep the real time supevision of the performance of these pairs, and this helps to improve the EA. Then for example, the mentioned removed pairs in the current backtest, probably will be included in the pairlist, but these pairs will have the size affected for the moment, for example x 0.2

- I have a big hope that my future plans of add the historical calendar to the backtest, will increase the performance significantly in general, so, some pairs that at this moment have problems, can be attractive again.

- The day of the tripple swap is detected automatically for if some broker don't apply this on wednesday night.

surprisingly neither ATR or PA opens buy EURAUD on the spike ;D. I guess next time.

Yeah I also thought the EAs would at least open a few buy trades given the spike but it didnít happen.

EURAUD is making another new high now. What a pity. :-\

Yes... I'm more surprissed with ATTR than PA, because you know in ATTR I'm trying to be less strict in terms of strentgh of the movement... I'm reviewing now the code for if I find something interesting...

Thank you for the report Jimmy.
I think the current portfolio in position to get a regular growth....

I observed that a good gold trade was missing on your signal. Bad luck. This explains the lose on Attractor, while in the official signal the week ended with a little profit:

Very cool ...  :) :) .. Joel, if you should "categorize" Stealth, would you categorize / label it as a Scalping-Strategy ?

Is an scalper in the sense that the EA usually have the TP near in relation to the 'momentum' EAs for example, where we expect to grab a long profit.
But as far I know, the scalper term applies to more agressive systems, with very tight TP and SL, and very low time of action.
I suppose not exist a concept to define well every system.
