It is the situation right now:
So, how is this method of trading doing over all since beginning of testing? Do you have stats with an equity curve for that with settings you have been using?
The settings should be changed for every single new event if we are trading the news. And it is more related to v #6 of NewsTrader EA. I did not change the settings.
By the way most lossing pair is GBPUSD. Most profitable may be USDCAD and NZDUSD.
This week results (high impacted news events only, NewsTrader_v5.3 EA, nfp settings) - in pips:
GBPUSD is most risky pair to trade the news.
Seems USDCAD and NZDUSD are most profitable pairs for trading high impacted news events with nfp settings.
I am not posting updated results as no any pending orders were executed this week for this EA with nfp settings.
It was PCE Core m/m now (at 12:30 GMT):
Results for nfp today:
+302 pips just for this NFP only.
This settings were created to trade nfp once in a month but I started to use it for any high impacted news trading.
I'm testing v5.3
Sometimes it look like is skipping news, like in this picture.
Any idea what;s causing this?
An another problem:
Orders shoud be placed 5 minutes before event and stay open 15 minutes, but was closed one after 2 minutes, one after 5 minutes, right on event time.
Also I dunno why event line is marked on chart away from right time.
