Update to post #65

nondisclosure007:
et al,

This zip has the same exact files as the one Derk just posted. All I did was make it easier to unzip them.

Just extract to your experts directory. It will place the files where they need to go (if you already have files by those names, it'll ask you if you want to replace them).

Non:

Yes, you are right; I set up my internal folder structure correctly now so the .zip file can just be extracted to your top level broker folder. For example with FXDD, just right-click drag and drop the .zip file onto

C:\Program Files\FXDD - MetaTrader 4

then select "extract to here", and it will put the files in the right places.

Post #65 has the right files in it now; somehow the lib files did not copy correctly last time; sorry all.

That is a message from your broker that your connection is down. If it persists, call your broker.

However, if you are not connected, not sure how EA is running. Anyone else have any input?

Losses and losses

Here are my overnight results. I have put the EA on 10 pairs to see if there might have been a problem with the pairs I used prior to last night. Still losing massively with rood's settings.

Can anyone suggest what is going wrong here?

Thank you so much Derk !! The market is closed for this week. I will try next week and let you know :-)

DerkWehler:
This is not a major revision; only a couple minor additions. I am happy that many of you are pleased with the EA. I have very little time these days, but wanted to get in a couple of additions you have requested:

1) xcooper asked that the EA have an option to place NO trades, but handle trades opened manually. I have made the changes I believe are required, but have no time to test it, so please give it a whirl on a demo and let me know how it goes. In order to activate it, you need to set "HandleExitsOnly" to true (defaults false).

2) I added session trading times for those that want the EA to trade only given hours. There are 3 optional sessions; you will see them at the end of the Entry Settings. If UseTradingTimes is false, or a session entry time is "99:99", then it will not use it. Times are server time. I tested these and they seems to work.

3) I do not have time to add this extra stuff to the instruction document right now. But if y'all test this and like it, I will add it in later.

I guess all I can ask in return is if someone finds a good 'session time' setting, please post your .set file back here so we can try it...

To download new version, check post #65.

Happy New Year,

-Derk

Hi Autumn, I looked over your file and noticed that all of your 'buys' were currencies that are going short (see daily chart). Also, one of the biggest losses on your 'sells' was EURUSD but the trend for this currency is long (see daily chart). My opinion is that the EA must only trade in direction of the primary trend. I don't think it will work just turning it on for long and short(unless we add a trend filter for daily and 4hr). I removed all your trades that went against the trend and your losses went from -4246 to -774. Not sure why, maybe your stops are too tight. I have made approx 400pips in the last 2 weeks(demo still) by only trading in the direction of the daily and 4hr. Hope this helps, thx mike

news

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your analysis, which appears to make good sense. However, I am trying to test Synergy as an EA, so I avoid making manual interventions. I want to find settings that will enable the EA to work on its own.

That being said, I decided to go back to optimization for the weekend and see if I can achieve some results just putting it through the grinder. So far I'm not sure whether this is going to prove fruitful.

Judy,

Can you log into your broker? Check down in the lower right hand corner of MT and see if you see a number of some kind or wether or not it says "not connected".

If you get a number and your still getting this error, call your broker. There's something going on w/ them.

The error is written by Derk's util. But I've looked at the code and all he is doing is alerting you from a built in function of MT4. So there's something else going on outside of the EA.

Anomalous behaviour

Hi Derk,

Please have a look at the attached chart and see if you can fathom what is happening. I think that there is a problem with exits.
