Did you recognize the side-way period and not use the strategy in that period? Maybe use another strategy or not trade at all
Here I put a test done with this EA idea,
But as I have mentioned before I got profit just in a trending period, I have tested it again in a sidewalk period and the loss was terrible
the best systems are adaptable ones
another opinion: you can't trade each move in the market.
Whichever works right i guess
if your strategy is adaptable one you can trade every move in the market place
With 278 short trades and 2932 long trades are you sure that you were "hedging"?
i showed my statement here as a proof of semi hedging i also can show you all a profitable statement using this kind of hedging.
did you remember my %1900 ROI. statement
Yes, you showed a profit, but none of that profit was due to the "hedging element"
i am a professional trader that have been in the marketplace since 9 years ago .
check tens of thousands of EAs , indicators , strategies like price action , ichimuko etc...
and can assure you 99% of them not work in long term.
because market is unpredictable and full of uncertainty. so no one can predict the
market direction with %100 accuracy even big players like central banks.
( remember George soros and the bank of England , https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/08/george-soros-bank-of-england.asp )
i said %99 of systems but %1 can make consistent money a part of those is hedging i think.
if you have any idea about hedging come here and give your comment.
that was semi hedging
I repeat - none of that profit was due to the "hedging element"
