Does anyone have a reversal EA, one that takes one position and reverses when you signal it? Or a generic one that's well documented? I get what I want from my indicator, but I haven't been able to translate that into an EA that gets the profit that it should. Someone should write a good book...
With all the indicators I've tried and tested over the years the moving average remains the one with no flaws. Sure it lags, sure there is a non lag moving average which still lags some, but the moving average never varies from real price like macd, or stochastic, or dmi, or trendanything. I think...

From $10,000 to $2,000,000 in 16 months using low-quality 1M backtester. Damn backtest!
As the subject says... How far back should you backtest an EA? How long should you forward test an EA before going live. Markets change, ideas inside of a traders head change. Any general time frame would be nice. Thanks

I did try posting some stuff on this forum a while ago, and was treated like some sort of pariah because I sell a book and courses. The reason I do that is because I have spent many thousands of dollars on developing a really simple technique to empower traders to be successful, and it's impossible...

Hi all, I have a pivot indicator on my charts which, on Mondays, is completely wrong because the gap between Friday and Monday shows as a day. Its only an hours worth of data and actually shows (on the bottom) as the last hour of Fridays session but with period seperator turned on it'll show a gap...
