I traded eurusd (two EAs), gbpusd (two EAs), usdjpy (two EAs) and usdchf (two EAs).
Why two EA?
One EA with the following settings:
take profit = 50
stop loss =50
trailing stop = 0
lot = 0.2
The 2nd one with the following settings:
take profit = 100
trailing stop = 30
Initial deposit is $5000.
So we have the following results up to now:
All 4 orders (eurusd, gbpusd, usdchf and usdjpy) qwere closed in profit already.
The process is still going on and with profit.
See image attached.
I will post all the statements today in the evening and tomorrow morning.
The same price with me.
Look at the image with previous post. The same.
I am using Russian Alpari broker.
It is my statement for today's NFP.
The statement by settings/pairs will be posted on weekly performance thread tomorrow.
This is excellent idea... we should run couple more tests and try on real account.. sure it will work perfect...
But what news should we try?
Every day ones or only big news??
It might be ideal to use some daily bank report such as
where it says today events.... but looking at the chart and timing in pdf file can not find any relations.
Does anyone knows some daily report about big news or planed events which will move the market?
I will try to post updated text file on the post #1 dring the weekend. I mean news for the next week.
We may try to test all the important/significant news.
I tested NewsTrader last week for following news:
2007.01.03;16:00;USD;ISM Manufacturing Index;3;
2007.01.04;16:00;USD;ISM Non-Manufacturing Index;3;
2007.01.05;14:30;USD;Nonfarm Employment Change;3;
Also I think that NewsTrader should be a part of EA Switcher.
Which settings did you use?
Looking for WinInet.mqh
GetNewsFF_v02.mq4 needs WinInet.mqh to include. I looked for this include but did not find it. Would you mind posting WinInet.mqh to here if you have it on your computer?
I love this NewsTrader EA... really a good job.
May we could include it in EA Switcher, yes...
NFP Trade - NewsTrader_v2 development
Here is my statement attached showing details of my NFP trade made on 5 January. I closed all of my positions manually 16 minutes after the news was broadcasted.
The operation was started from the text file that Newdigital posted here. Consequently, the EA worked fine. I have to remark that this NFP trade was smooth, there was no whipsaw, the prices went only one direction.
Some ideas of development:
1. Possibility to place two or more pending orders to both the long and short directions, e.g. last Friday on the 30 minutes time frame at 13:30 GMT the close price of GBPUSD = 1.9390. If we used a grid straddle there would have been e.g.
BUY_STOP1 = 1.9420; TP1 = 1.9450; SL1 = 1.9420;
BUY_STOP2 = 1.9450; TP2 = 1.9480; SL2 = 1.9450;
BUY_STOP3 = 1.9480; TP3 = 1.9580; SL3 = 1.9480;
And on the other side
SELL_STOP1 = 1.9360; TP1 = 1.9330; SL1 = 1.9390;
SELL_STOP2 = 1.9330; TP2 = 1.9300; SL2 = 1.9360;
SELL_STOP3 = 1.9300; TP3 = 1.9200; SL3 = 1.9330;
etc, the figures are just examples.
Yesterday we could not utilise much from these but when the market whipsaws these kind of settings are useful, I do not think I should explain why
The orders of the last tier could be followed by trailing stop.
2. Different news need different presettings such as TakeProfit, TrailingStop, InitialStop, BreakEven, PendOrdGap, etc. I think if we could preliminary integrate these presettings into the Calendar text file that also would be advantageous.
