SERIOUS WARNING

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.

I have enjoyed success trading TDesk manually as I describe at SteveHopwood @ TDesk, Super Slope TD and XY42.

This post introduces my automation of the trading system. Starting on Thursday last i.e. two days of trading and trading 0.1 lots on a $10,000 start balance, here was the result when I closed manually on Friday:

Trading XY42 manually, I use no discretion. TDesk signals a buy/sell signal: I go to the chart and drag the relevant EA onto the chart.

TDesk makes automating something like this so easy it is ridiculous. Here are the attached files:
  • XY42 Candle Candle Pattern Indicator TD.mq4. This is the drone indi that tells TDesk when there has been the appropriate candle pattern detected.
  • TDesk template.tpl: this will set up TDesk appropriately.
  • Desky: this will set up your Desky trading drone EA correctly.
  • Individual chart template.tpl: this will set up your individual charts to send their data to TDesk.

A word to the wise folks, in the spirit of cutting off pain at the pass. I am not joking in my, "To trade this system, you have to understand:" section at the top of this post. Do not whinge at me if you get error messages that show you have not got the appropriate files in the necessary folders - you will not enjoy my reaction.

Have fun.

brilliant many thanks for the share Steve, very exciting times here.

Seems as if ripe fruit after ripe fruit is being offered at the moment... but let's not forget the time and effort of all involved to nurture the tree that is bearing them (sorry for the laboured analogy!)

Where will we be in another decade? The imagination boggles.


A decade is a long span to foresee.

An expert that learns from its own trading results might be coming a bit earlier ...

Cheers

I have a sneak preview of what is coming.

You know all those socks that have been blown off in recent weeks?

Best to retrieve them; you are going to need extra pairs.

Hi all,

Less than 24 hr playing with XY42 automated and outcome looks very good.

(I can confirm, the basket close is buggy - so I have been closing manually.)

Thanks Steve and team!

Yikes! Steve has created a monster. A very cheerful smiling monster. :smile: Finally achieved the minimum level of competency required to set this up on a demo using the defaults and it started trading only around NY open today. Closed all open trades 15 minutes before NY close. As an experiment I will try close all of my open trades daily before the NY close just to see how that works out.

185 pips for NY session only. What a nice start! :clap: :party:

Need some suggestion how to avoid loss trades.
I don't stay all the time in front of PC when trend change that big issue, only check when come back from work.
Also request to friends do some experiment. It looks good.
Regards
Ishak
