Here is an interesting stat that you might want to consider.

Leverage 400:1
0.01 Lots = $0.10 or 10 cents per Pip
30 Pip Zone and 90 Pip Take Profit

Total Margin and Drawdown @ 21 Zone Trades before it exit everything at Break Even is about $6600.00
Just something to consider when assessing potential risk.

I know that most people will argue that their strategy will not encounter this (especially if they are playing breakouts) however I don’t have such a good strategy so I just need to be aware of that and ensure that I am well funded for the hard times.

Happy Trading
Ron

Once ALR kicks in, the original strategy has nothing to do with the subsequent trades, so it is quite possible to hit 21, 41, or 4000 Zone trades before it hits breakeven (unless, of course, you set a sensible limit to the number of zone trades). Once the ALR sequence has closed, then the original strategy comes back into play.

Have fun!

Hey Jack1,

1. Strong trend pair is needed. Then, price move fast, not stucked for too long.
2. That recovery zone need to be increased to 100 or 150 pips for eur-usd, over daily ATR, not hit next pending order.

Try to test? I download the EA, which seem not work ?


Re 1: If we could find a strong trend, and enter in the right direction, we wouldn't need ALR.

Re 2: ALR is based around a Risk:Reward ratio of 1:3, so an ALR Zone of 100 to 150 Pips would require a TP of 300 to 450 Pips - good luck with that if you're playing on the lower timeframes. If you don't increase your TP, you'd want to have a damn good Win:Loss ratio.

Have fun!

I said I would add the extra results I have got from my SAS analysis of ALR.

I thought it better to put the spreadsheet in the same place where I posted the first one:

TambaTrader @ Automatic Loss Recovery System (ALR) - read this first

I was trying to see how often ALR would fail after x amount of turns. I was interested in if using smaller amount of pips would make it need more turns. Although you can't draw any firm conclusions, because I have only used one year of data, I think the results give me some comfort that you can use ALR on smaller amounts of Pips (e.g. 10 to 30)

The reason I care about this is that I have a couple of strategies that are intraday and the ALR EA I was using, messes it up as it means I can't trade on that currency pair for however many days. So I wanted to see if I could reduce the amount of days that a trade would be in ALR mode.

I am not going to use that EA any more though (Wealthmaster's) as I think there is a high execution risk with the trades not having stop losses. You are too dependent on the EA always working.

I hope someone finds the results useful. For me it was good to have done it, as the code will probably be part of some more advanced code to ultimately make a proper backtester.

Check out SpiderX's ALR 2.0 Trade Manager

That system doesn't hedge, just closes out, and calculates the next lot-size, then enters in the opposite direction.

A few months ago, I had written a basket trader that incorporated ALR, using GlobalVariables to store all info needed in case of a restart/reboot, but I didn't like the death-runs, (and they always come eventually), so I threw it away :( Shame about that, 'cos a few days ago, I realized that if I just used ALR to recalculate the lot-size, then waited for a normal entry signal, I'd avoid the death-runs, (well, as long as my system had a good win/loss ratio in the first place).

As for whether ALR is a martingale, well, yeah, it is... It's just that we're increasing our risk by much smaller increments than with the standard martingale.

Have fun!

Thanks Radar, that is the EA I am going to try next :D
Will let you know how I get on in the thread for it.

Hi everyone, I was looking for some settings for my EA when i came across the blog. I went through the entire thread and noticed that the biggest problem was the settings. I figured the settings out but I haven't found an equation to find the settings. Which is why I'm here.

I'm going to put my EA here in hopes that it will get the minds thinking.... My EA will make a small profit every time it closes a sequence. I have the EA settings programed out to 13 rounds.... 13 SELLS 13 BUYS. These setting are for a 3.5 to 4.0 range. That means if the NoTradeZone is set to 50 pips (500 for my code), the ClosingPoint must be at least 200 (2000). Anything less than a 1to 4 ratio means it will lose money. The code always starts out with SELL. With the settings set at .01 SELL and .02 BUY, it always makes money on the first sequence no matter which closes first.

I have settings from 2.0-2.5 to 5.5-6.0. the higher settings I have out to 20 rounds... 20 of each.

Anyway have fun watching the EA. Any questions.. just ask and I will do my best to answer. Marty

" I will release my ALR EA soon, just need to polish it a bit first, and to write a manual for it."


@ TheInsider - It's been a while now so I may be too late to the party but did you ever release the EA that you were working on?

Can anyone else help me in finding where the latest thinking is about this trade recovery system - I've read through the last 10 pages or so and it looks like enthusiasm has been declining due to issues with the EA rather than the idea itself so I'm keen to find out if there is a more robust way of implementing it.

Thanks
