Hi there, Pretty new to MT4 and trying to achieve profitable results with back testing but not having much luck. I'm located the EST and have London open set to 10:00 (my servers time is 24:00 when it's 5pm in NY). I'm not really seeing any error messages in the Journal, but consistently get negative profits when running the strategy tests. I've tested both the EURAUD and EURUSD. Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong? And thanks for generously sharing your EA.

Hi, I'll post new setting files for these pairs soon. I hope this helps you with your tests.

Just scrawled through all the comments here and really impressed with your generosity...replying to everyone about a free ea...pretty impressive!

I am very new to fx trading. I like the breakout startegies as seems quite simple and low risk. As a beginner do you think i will be able to figure out and install your ea ok or shall i wait till i have more than a fee weeks experience!?
