Umm, a modeling quality of 25% is a bit too low.

What are the stoploss/trailing stops? I can't find them anywhwere. Or does this close by % loss alone?

I tested it w/ 400.00, and got stopped on one with -$3.10...which is nowhere near the 2% loss the thing is set at???

if(losses>1) lot=NormalizeDouble(lot-lot*losses/DecreaseFactor,1);

Function is incorrect i.m.o.

if(losses>1 && DecreaseFactor > losses) lot=NormalizeDouble(lot-lot*(losses/DecreaseFactor),1);

should work better.

Simple but useful money management.

One comment: HistoryTotal() is the old name of that function and has been replaced by OrdersHistoryTotal.

So, in the Moving average.mq4 code you need to replace this sentence:

int ClosedOrders=HistoryTotal();

with this one

int ClosedOrders=OrdersHistoryTotal();

hi there,

is it possible to remove the auto-close features?
