Must admit I was getting worried there for a while when on MaxTrades4 but a fortunate change of direction closed off in profit. We have decided to close our competition at the end of trading next week so there is another week for me to hang on.
As part of our rules we have decided not to manually interfere with our trades over the period of the competition and also use similar settings and just trade the EURUSD pair. The idea being to analyse and compare the results with a view to making the safest 10points3 expert advisor possible.
So there is a reason for our competition apart from, well in my case and up to now, the enjoyment of seeing the results coming in
AMAZING!!! Buy only!!! Still!!!
Hi John - can you post the version of 10p3 you are using ? Thanks
I am using tururo's Dynamic Stop exactly as posted on page 18 of the 10points3 thread in the MT4 Expert Advisor folder.
After all the EAs that have been modified from his version and from the original from elcactus site I selected the original Dynamic Stop which after long forward testing to date has been the most reliable.
Using the MM1 and Risk3 has given an interesting ride on a Demo account starting at $25000 and I doubt that I would have had the courage to use those money management settings on a live account.
Overall I am hoping that David's modifications hold out on the competition version that he has created because the additional safety that he has obtained to date will outweigh the risky volatility of my testing.
The settings are as follows:-
I am using NorthFinance as a broker on a $25000 demo account.
EURUSD is the only pair being tested on a M30 chart. In selecting EURUSD I was aiming at a middle of the road approach avoiding the more volatile GBPUSD and USDJPY. Money Management was used with the large account to stimulate activity for our competition.
Use any settings that seem appropriate for your testing but don't tell David he may change his tactics
I testing this Ea, 18 page https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/174975/page12
EURUSD , M30, your settings.
EA still no trade, backtest no trade.
What is wrong?
I have this EA, no extern indicator. Is it ok?
What is wrong?
I had a problem testing this once and it was because I didn't change the end year on external parameter.
Hope this helped
Grandpa is not around temporary. I do myself and him a favor, posting result for end of this week. Meanwhile, we've decided to extend the friendly match until after NonFarmPayroll. Grandpa was having a bad day, 10point3Dynamicstop hit stop loss, drawdown 26%, not too bad though. Mine still hang in there, slightly ahead grandpa after the incident happened. Hope you guys enjoy the race.
Great race ...hope in the end can get great EA ...

Thanks David for logging into my account and posting the details.
I am able to access the forum but not my platform, we are on baby sitting duties and I am on my son in law's computer with only dial up access.
As soon as I leave it the dreaded MaxTrades happens and I come crashing back to earth but not to worry the experiences will only help David create the safest EA.
I have my computers on 24/6 and turn it off every Sunday for 12 hours.
The trading through NFP next Friday will be a new experience for me using 10p3 because every other month I have closed down whilst in profit prior to the announcement.
All this competition has been about seeking out the best EA and allowing it to run through NFP will give important data. We have not adjusted any settings since the start but David is taking close notice so that after the comp he will be able to adjust his already safe EA to the ultimate.
can you adjust the setting of pipbutcher make it like this :
TP : 18
pip : 8
max trade : 12
no initial stop and no trail stop. no account protection
provide me with two magic number, 1 is buy, 1 is sell.
