OK. I am curious how you monitor performance of each EA for the Weekly Winners.
Do you run all the EAs in a single instance of MT4 ?
If this is Yes, how do you get performance information on each diffrent EA ?
I think I have read that some indies are used for this in this thread. Am I wrong ?
I am having some indicators created by Igorad especially for elite section. This is some modification of Igorad's indicators/scripts posted in this thread.
Please advise how to analyze the performance of each EA.
For example which indy should be used and how.
I tried ReportTSD V3 OpenTrade but there is onething I do not understand.
The generated report does not show the EA name.
It looks like the only way to find out which EA is reposnsible for a certain result is the magic number. Am I correct on this ?
But what if the EA does not have a magic number ?
I used ReportTSD V3 OpenTrade but Igorad created the tools for me for elite section (which I did not post on the forum) so ...
But I used this ReportTSD V3 OpenTrade before.
If no magic number so place 0.
And open this script in MetaEditor just to see the pairs (you can add more pairs).
Attach script to the chart (make sure that you place right numbers in START_DATE and FIN_DATE - just change the year and month in FIN_DATE) and you will see the report in files folder (for example: C:\Program Files\MetaTrader - Alpari UK_1\experts\files )
No need any name. Just magic number and the pair.
I will need the name if I will test 200 EAs ... but for 60 EAs - no need name.
By the way, I am not testing more than 2 EAs in one Metatrader so it is difficult to remember which Metatrader because it is more than 20 copies of Metatraders ...
But 2 or 3 EAs in one copy of Metatrader - no any problem to remember.
Thanks ND. I will follow what you advised but I will try it on Next Monday.
Now ReportTSD V3 OpenTrade works fine.
Is there any tool to display the EA name based on the magic number ?
I do not have anything with name.
A tool to generate report on each EA based on ReportTSD
It would be very very nice to have a tool which generates reports to show the summary data of each magic number (EA) trade based on reports generated with ReportTSD V3 OpenTrade.
Can this be done with Excel ? In other words, summing up the trade PA for each magic number.
Playing with Excel, I was able to come up with a solution to do the above using Pivot Table.
I am confused
Please look at those two reports.
The first one is the regular detailed report, by selecting All History.
It has Closed P/L: 36 558.63.
The second one is the one generated by ReportTSD with Summary P/L of -5617.
Are these two numbers look reasonable ?
Or please explain how to look at the report data.
They look differently.
Second statement is the statenent by pair.
And report tool is generating the statements in pips and in dollars so check the settings in this tool.
It is difficult as the statements are very big.
