SERIOUS WARNING
  • Most Forex traders lose all their money.
  • Using the robot posted here in trading Forex does not guarantee success.
  • Trading this robot could lead to serious financial loss.
  • Trading this robot without understanding its underlying trading strategies guarantees traders will lose their money.
  • This is not a set-and-forget ea; there is no such thing and anyone who tries to claim there is, is either stupid or lying. This ea requires frequent manual intervention.
  • At best, a trading robot is only 90% as good as the manual strategy it trades. At best. At worst, it can be much less effective. If the strategy is rubbish, so is the robot.
  • To trade this robot, you have to understand:

MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS POST http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=111241#p111241 There was a Forex bloodbath on Jan 15th 2015 that you need to know about.


You need the "SPB core library.mqh" file in your platform's Include folder. Download it from SteveHopwood @ Slopey Peaky Bob


This EA enters buy trades following a swing low and sells after a swing high. It uses the Slopey Peaky Bob engine found at SteveHopwood @ Slopey Peaky Bob. Read SPB's User guide for information about everything apart from this trade trigger.

Pippy is different to Swingy in that he calculate the average points per swing over the previous 100 swings. He trades only if the previous swing hilo was >= the average. He runs the averaging calculation function at the open of your broker's D1 candle. Pippy uses a Mean averaging technique; I bit of a blunt instrument I know, but I am hoping that calculating over 100 swings will help iron out the effect of the occasional massive candle.

Did some testing this week and even took away the SS and PK all together, but still no trades.
Does the average 100 swings stop it from taking any trades at all maybe?

I am adapting Pippy to a version of SPB that uses the Volumes indi as part of the trade trigger. I noticed a coding bloop that must surely stop the possibility of any trades. I have fixed this in post 1.

DIYers, do a search for:
if (!UsePeaky || peakyStatus[pairIndex] == peakyshorttradable)

Even those of you with only a rudimentary understanding of coding will see instantly that there is a line of code missing, so the block is not closed and chaos ensues. Add this directly underneath:
Code: [Select all]

I am wondering if I have done something similar in the HGI version. My H1 demo has taken few trades; my H4 version none at all. I will have a look later.

I was checking that I have resized all the relevant arrays and found I had missed two here. Please re-download 1a from post 1.
