I had a difficult time getting anything from Ballentine.
But I was able to eventually get USD version loaded.
The Zip file I got had no presets in it so I can't optimize like you're doing
(see the upper left corner fourth line your chart)...
I had one pending order on E$ canceled this morning.
That is all
I missed the webinar on how to optimize unfortunately and there is somthing basic I don't understand about how to enter data in ini file ...to optimize it
so its not optimizing for me
so anyway its been trading in default on my live account
as of now its positive +
anybody else watching this?
I've installed the bot, and i've optimized the settings.
Can I modify now the lots and the reversal mod, or i have to modify this BEFORE optimisation?
I've tried to make an opti file with 0.05 lot, resulting in a bug (non optimization) (Perhaps i've made a mistake modifying something)
Yes, thanks for the answer and for the repeating of some important things !
I haven't traded with it for the moment, I was just "playing" with the files.
The opti with 0.05 doesn't work, with 0.1 it's OK I've tried a second time.
Now I have two stop orders on the MT4 plateform, looks to be working
First trade = -50pips eur/usd
second trade = not well engaged ... then, big up of the eur/usd -> winning trade closed manualy 52.9pips
it's a good bot i think, but my account is too small for the risk, or i'm not an agressive trader
I wasn't able to use the EA on a demo account(error: bad account type) !
lol... so i decided to give a try on my live account ! (I hate those registering systems !)
I will do a opti again, the 1st report was pretty good.
I think the main problem is (for my heart) the size of lots, at least 0.10lots, for an 1000$ account, too risky don't you think ? I thought the minimum trade size was 0.10 according to the manual. It's not an EA problem except if my opti is bad !
Trying the test with 0.05 lots didn't work (no results with the auto Opti), but i'll try using your idea with MM on, or with lot step.
I've done my optimization according to the video with "breakout eurusd.set", and i got results in the INI file.
(My trade were made with a buy stop / sell stop, and not at market price.)
I'll try to opti on GBPUSD monday !
Just to know, What are your SL and TP ?
Could it be a problem with MT4, Windows seven and admin rights?... I don't think so...
I certainly need more time on a demo account !
