Does your EA hanged and stop during big market movement?


Hi everyone ... I am using an EA that is based on martingale which open additional trades at fixed pipstep and when the overall trade positions in either direction hit their TP it will close that direction and restart from first level again. However, I noticed that there are times when it closes a set of trades after TP and it failed to start the new set and the EA simply stop doing what it is supposed to do. I was wondering if this is common during big market movement?

After I restart the terminal or reload the EA, it would resume what is supposed to do.

Any idea what could be causing it? TIA!

  1. Your code is broken; fix it.

  2. Martingale, guaranteed to blow your account eventually. If it's not profitable without, it is definitely not profitable with.
