SmartForexExpert signals / Copy SFE Signals - FREE to join!
« on: May 11, 2020, 07:39:42 AM »
Copy Smart Forex Expert Signals:

- Please use IC Markets MT5 to copy the High Risk account and Pepperstone MT5 to copy the Low Risk account

- You will also need to activate US Stock CFDs on IC Markets MT5 by sending an email to to request it. Pepperstone MT5 accounts come with US Stock CFDs already activated

Step-by-Step Guide to copy SFE signals:

1. Go to our signal page ( and click "Signup":

2. Register a new account:

3. Once you have registered a new account and verified your email, come back to the page and choose the signal you would like to copy:

4. Click "Follow Signal":

5. Click "Select":

6. Confirm that you have a trading account with IC Markets or Pepperstone, and Login if you haven't done so already:

7. The signal is now successfully added:

8. Go to the panel on the left and choose "Configurator" -> "Account", and then choose "Add Account":

9. Enter the credentials of your IC Markets MT5 or Pepperstone MT5 account to receive trades - please note you will need to enter the Master password here so the platform can place trades for you:

10. Click "Add account" and the account should be connected successfully within 60 seconds:

11. Once the account is connected successfully, go to "Configurator" -> "Trade Copier" -> "Add Copier":

12. Set up the Copier to copy from the Signal to the account you have just added, then choose your multiplier and whether you would like to copy existing trades, then click "Create Copier":

13. Once the copier is created, clicking the Settings icon under "Options" (2nd button from the left):

14. On the first page, don't turn on the Copier just yet, check and update your "Risk Settings" and "Stops & Limits" - it's important that you set "Copy Pending Orders", "Copy Stop Loss" and "Copy Take Profit" all to YES and update the settings, before you turn the Copier ON.

15. Turn the Copier ON and click "Update", and you are now connected! ;)

Lastly, the system will send you email alerts about every trade by default, which I find a little annoying. If you would like to disable it, go to the panel on the left -> "Configurator" -> "Email Alerts" and untick the alerts that you don't want to receive, then click "Update Alerts":

That's it folks! Welcome to the SFE Family! :D

SFE General Questions / Autolot function with virtual balance
« on: September 18, 2019, 05:12:40 PM »
Hi Joel,

I just had a lightbulb moment today...

I think the reason why my accounts have been so successful, is because I use Fixed Lots!

Because with the Autolot function, the Lot size is increased when the account balance is higher, and the Lot size is reduced when the account balance is smaller - so it means you will lose more when the balance is at equity high, and when you have been in DD for some time and the account is smaller, when you make a recovery, the recovery will be less because the Lot size is smaller!

Which means, had your SFE PA official account used Fixed Lot all the time, you would have been out of this long stagnation already! The reason why it is still in stagnation is really because when the account makes big gains after it has been in DD for some time, the Lot sizes are always smaller and you make less gains from those big spikes.

So my proposal is you can make a new option for users to set a Fixed virtual balance, so the Lot size on Autolot wonít reduce when there is a loss. Or another way, is to configure the Autolot function so that the Lot size will only increase when the account makes a gain, but the Lot size will not reduce when the account makes a loss.

I am sure this will make the EAs even more profitable! What do you think? :)

Just saw this new signal on Signal Start that was added yesterday and now sitting at #1:

Danger signs:
  • Profit factor: 30.96 - check!
  • Balance: $158.69 (from a deposit of $5) - check!
  • Trades: 107 - check!

Now the only thing I wonder, is when this account is going to crash? ::)

I don't know why Signal Start lets something like this to be listed...obviously this vendor must have crashed many accounts before and this is the only one that survived...

Other EAs / Forex Cyborg

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.

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:

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?

SFE Site Discussion / Change timezone setting
« on: August 23, 2019, 04:32:52 AM »
Hi Joel,

Just another little request from me...can you please allow members to set their own timezone when they browse the forum?

According to this video ( there should be an extra option under "Profile" -> "Look and Layout" where you can change the timezone setting.

I just find it easier to set the forum time to my timezone so I know what time people actually made their posts.

Thank you so much! :)

SFE Site Discussion / Forum signature characters limit

Hi Joel,

I am trying to add some more links in my forum signature but the signature is limited to 300 characters. Do you think you can increase the limit to 1000?


SFE Site Discussion / Attachment size limit
« on: August 15, 2019, 02:36:59 AM »
Hi Joel,

I am trying to make a post and attach a photo, but the file size limit of 128kb for each attachment is just way too small. Can you allow the attachment size to be larger? I think 1mb would be good enough.

Thanks! :)

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!  :)
