I had completely missed the significance of Thomas' 'Slopey Peaky Desk – Putting the Strings Together at tomele @ Slopey Peaky Desk - Putting The Strings Together, until last week.

Go to post 1 and scroll down to “Part 2. Example – Slopey Peaky Desk” to read about Thomas' use of TDesk, Desky and the Universal Drones.

Thomas has made it ridiculously easy for us all to set up our charts once we have all the bits and pieces in place. Locating all the bits and pieces can be tricky, especially if you are new here. The attached .pdf explains where to find everything you need and how to get set up.

Official SHF broker
No point in learning to trade like a master trader if your broker is bollocks, so I have decided to make more of a fuss about Global Prime for the benefit of all who can trade through them but have not yet elected to do so. GP is SHF's 'Official broker'. Not just the 'Official' broker (cos we all know what a multitude of crimes this can cover) but my broker.

I am happy that GP continues to offer the transparent and honest service they advertise – it is the ONLY broker I trade with. Before you start trading you need to read this thread: “Why you should sign up with Global Prime” at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... =52&t=1475 You can chat to the team at GP on the LiveChat on their website. I remember every time I send a trade, what a breath of fresh air it is to know that I am trading with a genuine broker, not a 'market maker' or 'bucket shop' – and this is more than seven years after Jeremy & Co took over the running of GP..


--------

VPS. I am running Eaymon's VPS. Absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. At the time of writing, I am running 8 demo platforms and it has not missed a beat. Physical memory used = 47%. I have yet to catch CPU usage going over 40% and it is usually in the low teens, so plenty of juice left: http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 103&t=5282

--------


I encourage all of you running SPB, PoS, Monster to to take part in the coordinated test database. It is quick and easy to set up, the the uploader EA takes care of the heavy lifting. Details at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 81#p160081


-----------------------------


EA's that members are trading live and profitably
These are the ones I know about. Contact me if yours should be in this exclusive group and I have missed it out. It will never be a large section.

Before you use them there are a few points you MUST understand, grasp and learn to live by:
1) There is an unbreakable, unshakable and unavoidable rule of retail forex trading and it is this: if it can happen and it is bad for you, then it will happen, and probably sooner rather than later.
2) You will have losing days.
3) You will have losing weeks.
4) You will have losing months.
5) The only thing that matters is that the equity curve rises over a longer period of time than most of you possess the ability to concentrate for.
6) You need balls of steel to trade Forex. 2), 3) and 4) will sort you out rapidly if you are a wimp.
7) Never trade with funds you cannot afford to lose. You will be desperate to succeed and fear will cloud your judgement. Guess how I know? Guess why I am so relaxed about trading these days. Only a cretin trades with the pension pot or remortgages the house in order to do so.

Gold Mine Threads
These are the threads that I am familiar with whose participants are consistently making profits.

Bob's (nanningbob) Holy Grail Indicator
People are making a bomb out of the Holy Grail Indicator. Bob has come up with a concept that tells use when to trade and exit, and when not to trade. Elixe and milanese have coded this into an indicator, coding which is breathtaking in its scope and execution. Visit Bob's Holy Grail Indicator thread at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 44#p105044 right now. Immediately, Go. Now.

HGI has revolutionised trading. All we have to do is react to its signals. Visit the relevant chart when you hear an alert and do what HGI tells you to do. An infant could trade with this indi.

Renexxxx has a great-looking Matrix at http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3 ... 62#p105462

So guys, not only do we have Bob's amazing HGI but we have fabulous tools to help us use them (including some automation – see below). Try them out and see what works for you.

There are interesting thingies happening in Leon's, “Wavegarrick's HGI trading” thread at Wavegarrick @ Wavegarrick's HGI Trading

-----

Bear in mind that Monday is a Bank Holiday in UK and USA, so don't expect much liquidity during the London and New York sessions.


-----


For those of you new to all this, I remind you that Friday is the US Non-Farm Payroll news release. This happens on the first Friday in the month unless that happens also to be the first of the month, in which case it is moved to the second Friday.

News releases are no longer the thingy of terror that they were a decade ago, but they can cause chaos in the markets. NFP is one of the bigger releases, at 1.30 PM :London time. It is up to you to work out what time this is where you live.

Typically, the markets go to sleep in the hours leading up to the release of the NFP figures. Spreads widen dramatically. The actual news release sometimes triggers huge moves, albeit less often these days than a decade ago. My best advice to noobs is this: try to be out of the markets by about 12 hours before the release, and stay out until they reopen after the weekend.

Richard has come to some definite conclusions. Outline at r1ch4rd @ Sharky, then latest templates etc at r1ch4rd @ Sharky

-----

Jonah has updated Ditto- Jonah @ Ditto - Empty4 to Oanda Trade Copier - As Low as 0.00001 Check it out as a great solution to those of you unable to open a live trading account with Global Prime. You can use Ditto to send trades generated on GP's demo platform (open to all) to OANDA. OANDA may not be perfect but it seems they are better than most.

-----

Read Thomas' (tomele) profile and you will see that a part of it is this:
Occupation: PC Doctor, Programmer, Webmaster. He is running the back end of this forum these days.

It occurred to me that I could express my appreciation for all that he does for us by giving him a monthly bump in my wrup. I asked him to expand on his listing. Here is his reply:

“Basically, people can ask me for everything computer-related. Be it helping remotely via phone and/or Teamviewer to fix or set something up, be it coding in Mql or some other language or be it something website-related. The approach would always be to contact me with a description of the task to receive an offer from my side. I always honestly say when things exceed my skills, but probably I can make contact with a more appropriate partner then.”

Bear Thomas in mind when you need something computer-related, folks. You can contact him by email or PM via his user control panel, or by posting on his thread tomele @ Need help with PC, coding or website?

-----


Example of a major Empty4 anomaly:
I am still chasing down anomalies presented by Empty4. How about this one? The system is based on sending stop orders following a signal. I was lucky enough to be watching when this happened:
  • There was a stop order that filled the instant that a new candle formed.
  • The previous candle had also generated a signal.
  • The order receipt had not returned from the server, so the EA concluded there was no stop order in place even though the filled trade showed up in the trade window, and sent a fresh stop order.
