All three HTF SS must align and my basket TP is $30, so these results represent two basket closures.

Nothing wrong with the settings or the EA..I suggest you check your log files and look for any possible errors.

V 1h is in post 1. It is the experimental version renamed. It has the code required to allow us to send our results to the SHF tester database.

Set WriteFileForTestDatabase to 'true', then follow Thomas' instructions at tomele @ Tests Database announcements

Hi @all.

I havent attached a report to this post. Instead from now on you can always have a look at the database in realtime here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

The results are normalized to 1 Lot. So "ø Profit/Lot/Day" of 1000 would mean an average profit profit of $10 each day had you traded 0.01 lots.


Have fun.

:rocket:
Happy pippin, Thomas ;)

Hi everybody,

I have still a few trades that are closed although I have only specified a Equitytargetclosure.

These trades are closed only in negative values, this is why I thought I missed something in the parameters.
I looked for an eventual mistake, I did not find anything.
Finally I looked at the code, Steve or someone else could confirm if I am wrong :

The 2 following lines seem suspicious to me :

//All higher frames are wrong
if (HtfAlignmentStatus[PairIndex] == tradableshort)
CloseThisTrade = true;

//All higher frames are wrong
if (HtfAlignmentStatus[PairIndex] == tradablelong)
CloseThisTrade = true;


If I well understand, they mean that as soon as the Highertimeframe are aligned in the opposed direction, the trade has to be closed. There is no other conditions and nothing in the parameters that would allow to deactivate this thing.

I think it could explain these closed trades. Do not hesitate to delete my message if I am totally wrong .

Cheers

Your post is mostly nonsense. Please do not continue to post nonsense here. I do not really mean, "Please". It is an instruction.

From what little sense I can make of your idiotic question, then the answer is, "Yes". That seems blindingly obvious to me.

Do not continue this discussion. You will not enjoy my response.

Here is a pic to encourage those of you trading tiny starter accounts:
XAUUSDH4.png


This is a tiny Global Prime live account. In round figures, the account started last week with a balance of $299 and finished with $331. This was trading with all the higher time frame HGI enabled and a basket take profit of $2.50, so the profit represents c. 12 closed baskets. Lots of tiny profits eventually accumulate. I have uploaded the set file to enable you guys to try it for yourselves.

SHF members who read my posts know that I am not a fan of publishing set files. You will not replicate the results unless your broker is Global Prime (Introducing Global Prime Forex Brokerage and Why you should sign up with Global Prime).

You may not replicate them even if you are a GP client. Next week could be completely different. Who knows?

Time to repeat my mantra, with an addition:
  • Able to open a Global Prime account and still have not done so? You are an idiot. Open one immediately.
  • Only ever trade with funds you can afford to lose. Not wanting to lose them is natural, but assume they are gone the moment you start live trading.
  • Never borrow money to start a trading account. Save up for it if you cannot immediately afford the initial deposit.
  • If you are successful, double the account balance with all trades closed then withdraw the original deposit. That way you are really are playing with money that you can afford to lose.

A quiet week on my main live account with no baskets closed. The open position is 34 trades at -148 at the close on Friday - and that is a substantial improvement on where it had been from time to time. We shall see what next week brings.
