SFE Forex Evolution EAs / Re: SFE Price Action EA
« on: May 30, 2020, 09:23:03 PM »
Hi Joel,
from the history I can see that this expert changed over time from catching trends towards a focus on strong reversals.
I wonder how the previous versions would have done in the recent years/months.
Would be interesting to see backtests up to now for version 1.4, 1.5, 2.5, 2.6, 3.0 and 3.1.
It would take some time to create the backtests and I know you are always busy with the experts. But maybe it could help to unterstand how the market changed in the recent years.

Could you please give some comment on this EA as you have removed it from the MQ marketplace.

Thank you for implementing the %risk money management.  :)
Is it possible to know the max number of concurrent trades for a specific pair assuming a very strong impulse and all timeframes get active?
Any specific reason why it is not possible to select specific timeframes anymore?

I wonder why SFE Stock Market trades only long. Shouldn't it be exactly the opposite? Stocks tend to rise over time, but price action to the downside is much more powerful.

Now we are exactly in a situation which I have described a couple of months ago when the risk is out of control: There is a pending EURAUD with a SL of 890 pips. In such cases the EA should skip trades because the risk/reward is bad or at least be able to lower the lot size automatically.

Thanks Jimmy, I had the same issue with CNS/Beeks last year as they gave me a new VPS because they could not migrate it.
But last weekend I requested a CPU/RAM upgrade of my Beeks VPS and I can confim that it was successful without having to spend an additional activation. ;D

There is an additional EA activation required for each hardware (and major OS) upgrade.
Is anyone of you guys already using a VPS for a very long time without having to spend an additional activation?
VPS are virtualized machines (VMWARE or HyperV) but I wonder if there is an additional activation required when the provider changes hardware of the server that are running these virtualized machines?!

SFE PA 3.1 apparently was optimized to focus on catching reversals (which is a good idea from my point of view :) ).
* What is the overall relation between trend/reversal trades according to the backtest?
* Are there significant differences on the ratio trend:reversal between the supported pairs?
Thanks for information in advance.

Do you think it is possible to add support for EURAUD with this EA and adapt all the strategies that were developed for EURUSD?

Very interesting, thanks a lot for sharing.

That might be the cause for the strange MT4 behaviour in my 2-core VPS:
Sometimes a MT4 terminal freezes for minutes completely except the market watch clock which still counts the seconds smoothly. After a while everything is fine again without having to restart the terminal-process.
Anyone having similar issues? Did you have exactly the same issue Joel?

I think it could make sense not assigning all terminals to cpu 0?!

How many bars of history does SFE Price Action need?
I would like to optimize my terminal resources.

For those who prefer to customize EAs like me it would be interesting to have the option to define on which weekdays/hours the EA is allowed to open trades.
For me personally this feature would be interesting in SFE Price Action and SFE EURUSD.

There is a parameter Broker_Adapt_GMT_On_DST_Period in all of your EAs. That does not take into account if the broker changes GMT according to US (e.g. IC Markets) or Europe (e.g. Alpari). Shouldnít have too much impact but itís inaccurate.

Hi Joel,
thank you for your interest in my suggestion.

I use the expert in a different way and run only a small selection of pairs/timeframes in assistance to my manual trading.
But for the typical user this could be an even more interesting option in a fictive scenario: 8 pairs are connected to the USD and some of them have a high correlation in short term. Letís imagine an extreme move in the USD because of a total unexpected major event (affecting only the US Dollar) that opens trades on all pairs with a very wide stop loss (lets say 200 pips). An immediate (at least partly) retrace causes stop loss in all (at least most) trades. This is not unrealistic because banks are interested to buy/sell the Dollar at extreme levels. Surely we would see moves in the unrelated pairs that could decrease the overall loss (but could even add loses). The supposed diversification could lead to compounded losses.
We canít easily avoid this situation but the %risk could help because I know in advance how much to lose max at a single event. Instead of the fixed lot size, a smaller lot size is used because of the bigger stop loss distances.
Of course there would be additional effort to realize this because when stop loss in pending orders is adjusted the orders would have to be deleted and recreated with new size.

No need for an immediate update. Just a suggestion if you find some time in the future.

Hope that helps.
Best Regards
