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! :)


P.S. don't forget the SFE Promotions run out this weekend! https://smartforexexpert.com/index.php?topic=558.msg1125;topicseen#new

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!



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:



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)

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 account’s 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:

Current SFE Price Action Profit/Loss graph on SFE Combo Account - what a comeback!

SFE Combo at new equity high:


SFE Combo Aggressive at new equity high:


Total profit I have made since using Joel's EAs - now over $330K! 8)

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
SFE Night Scalper - 2% risk per trade
SFE Stealth - 3% 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. :)

What a boring week....only 12 total trades for the week and 5 were manual trades, which means there was only 7 trades from all the EAs combined!!

It could just be the calm before the storm as we will have US and China PMIs next week and NFP on Friday. Perhaps that will be when all hell breaks loose?...let's wait and see. ;)

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

Total: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?#week)
-$435.49

SFE Stealth: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=300051-300151#week)
+$1037.27

SFE Price Action: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=400051-450601#week)
-$2953.98

SFE Attractor: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=510051-510605#week)
+$377.43

SFE Night Scalper: (https://www.fxblue.com/users/jimmy8378/stats?magic=710051-710302#week)
-$336.92

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