An user ask me for the current preset of the CHF signal. The preset I'm using in this signal is:

I use three CHF pairs. With the hours showed in the next parameters. A size of 0.01 for every 100 (my account is in EUR) and 125% of the balance, because seems a very reliable EA for a long of time, the last big fall was a rare event, very uncommon.
The value of the parameters are:

Pairs_List  CHFJPY;EURCHF;USDCHF
Start_Trade_Hour_List 21;20;0
End_Trade_Hour_List   1;2;0
Balance_For_Every_001_Lots   100.0
Autolot_Balance_Percentage  125

I reply here some interesting questions received:

- what inputs shud be used to backtest without fractional lots??

Don't use fraction lots is not an option in the current version, if demanded I can add in next update. But fractional lots is not applied if the size of the trades are under 0.05 lots. Therefore, for see a backtest without fractional lots, use a size between 0.01-0.04

- are fractional lots necessary for profitability?

fractional lots are used in the way of exit the position. Don't affect in the entry/setup. How the EA manage the order and exit the position is not only affected for this partial clousures, and the profitability at mid/long term can be very similar. Partial closures helps to book the profit instead of keep the order opened more time with the risk of reversal, but also can lose a peak of profit sometimes, therefore is not critical use or not use partial closes ad mid term, sometimes worth, sometimes not.

- additionally what fixed lot is suggested for all pairs in default with 1000 USD?

The size suggested for 1000 USD is 0.01 lots, the minimum. In this case, obviously partial closes will not be applied.

Why do I use 'open price only' instead of ticks when I backtest my EAs is a common question.

The answer is very easy, the kind of prices necessary for backtest with reliability depends directly of the kind of system, how is programmed and executed the system.

I mean that if you follow some guidelines when you programm the EA, the 'open prices only' can be more than enough for proceed with the backtest. What happens in this kind of systems, is that backtest with 'open prices' or with 'ticks' will produce 99,9% the same results.

Therefore, don't make sense spend more time and resources backtesting in 'ticks'.

In the case of my EAs, they works this way, the result is the same using open prices or ticks.

As general idea, this can happens if you program a system which only acts at the beginning of the bar (which is the case of my EAs). In this case, what happens inside a bar doesn't matter because you don't take actions depending on this.

But the final reason why I use this kind of programming in SFE EAs, is not for not spend more time backtesting in 'ticks'. Is because I think that a system than needs the tick information to work is too risky, because is a system which works very fast when volatility can be still out of contral, and in very narrow ranges, and in this case, the backtest is not reliable (even using ticks) because the mt4 backtest don't represents well the punctual spread and slippage issues, and with systems which focus on ticks, this issues have a big influence.

In brief, in case of SFE EAs, backtesting on 'open prices' or 'ticks' gives the same result at 99,9%. We don't have to consider 'open prices' a 'low modeling quality' in this behaviou, and remember that the information of the bar in 'open prices' is correct, I mean the high, low, open, close and volume.

June performance of the SFE family:



As we can see for the number of trades, the EA is very deactivated last weeks cause the very low volatility, and when one of the few movements happens, there is a lack of strenght and is difficult to make profits.

Let's see if more strong movements comes to the market, this must happens soon or later.... then the EA can recover and make profit.

We think EURUSD EA is a very powerful EA, but we are facing the lowest volatility of the century in the EURUSD pair, so is a very complicated moment right now for make profit.

But this must end soon or later, and we can experiment a big rebound in the activity specially if the announced upcomig economical financial crisis finally explodes.

Let's wait to see if the activity growth next weeks... and the profits comes again...

Another good month for SFE Night Scalper, specially for the chf pairs signal.

This EA continues to developing very well, and as we know, the current DD was for the big 'flash' crash of the JPY and AUD currencies happened on January 2019 for few hours.  The EA had the bad luck of have some orders opened (in the bad direction) and got big losas that day, and was an exceptional situation, very uncommon along the years.

But seems that new highs are near again and we can forget that day, specially for the CHF signal, maybe we can reach new highs next month,  and this highs can also be the + 1.000% profit milestone :)

Therefore we continue very optimistic with the EA and we expect profits also next months.

June performance of the SFE family:



SFE Price Action EA has suffered the worst loss of the year this month.

The EA continues with an admissible level of number of tradings, but the weakness of the movements last months, keeps the EA a far for the last highs and the stagnation period is extending more than expected.

While this kind of soft market continues the EA will contine in trouble to get profits. But soon or later this can change. The golden age for this kind of EAs, begun in 2008 with the last world economical crisis, which leads to the currency markets to a large period of volatility and big movements. Seems that the next big economical crisis can be at the corner, therefore, the currency markets can have storms again and this will benefit this kind of EAs. The price of GOLD breaking the highs of the last years confirms that this new finacial crisis may be very near.

June performance of the SFE family:



The start of the Attractor EA has been quite satisfactory although the month has end with a little groth of 0,25%.

Looking the general performance of all the EAs, we can see that this month has been a very low movements month, because the activity on the EAs which needs big movements has been almost inexistent (KISS, Fire&Forget).

Considering this, we are happy to see how the predictions about that SFE Attractor can develop trading even in soft markets like the current , has been accomplished.
The number of operations in relation to the KISS and F&F is obvious, and in comparison to SFE PA shows also a lot of operations more, specially if we consider that Attractor uses 7 pairs while PA uses 16.

The most new developed EAs, we are focusing in try to be in the game in soft markets also. Obviously in this kind of markets the chance of make profit is lower, but is possible anyway as shows the backtest of SFE Attractor.

A 0,25 growth is not the average desired obviosly, but if we compare with SFE PA, probably the most complete EA of his kind until now, SFE PA has suffered a very bad month, therefore, end alive this month of June seems a very reasonable result and we are optimistic with the upcoming performance.
Up to 4 times this month the EA has been at one step of do nice profits, but the movements has retraced at final, we will see next weeks :)

The average spread of the trades has been very good. Remember to visit the broker section to understand what kind of brokers are the best.

The slippage has been worse than others EAs, this proably means that Attractor EA has the ability to enter in action before than other of his family EAs, when the volatility is still high, so is normal to get some kind of slippage. We will keep the attention of how develops this data when we carry more operations. We expect the slippage should be lower than the current number.

This is a Fire and Forget System (F&F S1). No external parameters, no need to optimize.

Do you want a solid system but you don't have or don't want to spend a lot of hours optimizing and changing the parameters regularly for adapting to the condition of every moment? The SFE Fire and Forget System 1 will help you.

The system uses simple but smart Price Action setups to enter the trade, and simple but smart management of the open orders, which don't need to be optimized because they work in all kind of markets along the years, this is the reason for selecting them.
