sorry i've been busy for few days

OK may be this EA will suit your techniques. Only one lot, and you can add some distances from high and low of previous candle..

I'm waiting for your optimizations and result..

BTW it's primajaya not primaya

A simple system/method... yet it can be very powerful. I like it theory behind this system.

I usually don't trade using EA's ( a little bit allergic to them ) but i will give this one a try. Unfortunally i don't know much about EA's and the settings is more or less like greek for me.

Could someone... preferly primajaya help me understand what each and singel parameter do or mean?

TP = 20 <--- This one i guess closes the position at the target.

TP_Increment = 20 <--- ?????????????

SL = 80 <--- This one i guess closes the position at the stopp loss... but very poor R/R... 1:4... winning 20 on each profitable trade but losing 4 times more on losing trades....

RangePoint = 10 <--- ???????????????????

AddPoint = 10 <--- ???????????????????

LotSize = 1.0 <--- How big position the EA will open i guess

LotDevider = 5 <--- ???????????????????

MagicNumber = 123456789 <--- ???????????????????

DelOpposite = false <--- ???????????????????

MoveToBEP = true <--- ???????????????????

LockProfit = 1 <--- ???????????????????

TrailingStop = 40 <--- If TP is set to 20 (first paramenter) the how can it start trailing when position is in profit of 40 pips? The positions is closed after 20 pips

I would really appriciate help to understand this EA. Once i do i will help out tweaking the parameters so that we all can make good money of it.

Hi macwys,

iam a BarHiLo Newbee, but i love simple Strategies.

MyMotto is, "Keep it simple".

Can you tell me if you trde this A and witch Vrsion of EA and can you Post your Statement and Results??

Thanks

gatowman

macwys:
Hello Trading Fellows.

First, look on my strategy:

- Everyday on 0:00 GMT I make two pending orders:

1. Buy @ yesterday high

2. Sell @ yesterday low

TP and SL for example: TP:20pips SL:15pips

end.

On GBP/USD, TP: 20pips, SL: 15pips in 32 days I have:

8 loss = -120 pips

25 win = +500 pips

On another TP/SL, we can have better ratio.

Now:

Programmers, please make EA for this simple strategy, to test other TP/SL parameters. EA should two imputs: TP and SL.

Ok, small response please.

Is it possible for people to post in normal page width. This thread has wider than normal page width. Alternatively, can anyone tell me how to reformat the page to be normal width so it is unnecessary to scroll the page to see the whole width of the page.
