MFE and MAE Distribution Point Graphs

Maximum profit (MFE) and maximum loss (MAE) values are recorded for each open order during its lifetime. These parameters additionally characterize each closed order using the values of the maximum unrealized potential and maximum permitted risk. MFE/Profit and MAE/Profit distribution graphs display each order as a point with received profit/loss value plotted along the X-axis, while maximum displayed values of potential profit (MFE) and potential loss (MAE) are plotted along the Y-axis.

Place your cursor over parameters/graph captions to see the best and worst trading series. Find out more about MAE and MFE distributions in the article Mathematics in Trading: How to Estimate Trade Results.

The average slippage based on execution statistics on real accounts of various brokers is specified in pips. It depends on the difference between the provider's quotes from "ICMarkets-Live03" and the subscriber's quotes, as well as on order execution delays. Lower values mean better quality of copying.

Blackwave Strategy - Basics


The strategy is a manual grid strategy and not an EA. While it has traded exotic and EM pairs profitably in the past it only trades major and minor forex pairs now to reduce
the cost of SWAPS and the inherent political/geographic/economic uncertainty around many exotic/EM pairs. When markets are overbought or close to overbought trades are opened
counter-trend. When profit targets are hit trades are closed. If the market continues to move against the initial position then a second trade is opened based on candlestick
price action and how the market is trading/pending news etc. Up to 12 positions maybe opened.

When markets are oversold or close to oversold trades are opened counter-trend. When profit targets are hit trades are closed. If the market continues to move against the
initial position then a second trade is opened based on candlestick price action and how the market is trading/pending news etc. Up to 12 positions may be opened.

Risk control is achieved through position sizing. Position sizing MUST be the most important feature of the strategy because there is no hard stop loss and no hedging.
People will often happily accept extrordingary profits and only query the strategy when they experience a stressful drawdown in their own account even while the master account
remains quite safe. This is because they have failed to understand how crutial position sizing is for the strategy.

While there is no hard stop loss there is a soft one which is market dependent and as follows;

Blackwave California - Approx 15%
Blackwave Pacific - Approx 35%
Blackwave Alpine - Approx 50%


This strategy has produced excellent profits since 2015 and is now one of the oldest strategies on most copy trading platforms. It is the inspiration for three MAM accounts
managing $2m of other peoples money. I never place trades in client accounts that I do not wish to place in my own accounts too and as at June 2019 my own commitment to this
strategy across all three risk levels is $190k.

These are the basics. To give any more information would be to reduce my flexibility and take away the major advantage of a manual strategy and make it effectively automated.
As a former stockbroker I like to watch all markets at once and get a sense of what's going on rather than put blind faith in back-testing which in the end only tests the past.
Links below to Blackwave Money Accounts which demonstrates my personal commitment to this strategy.

I really dont know why this signal is so popular. I ve been copying this Signal for a month now and i can say this signal doesnt worth the subscription fees. The Signal has since about a month open Positions in DD of 6-10% , paying every night for a month now Swap fees in order to take at the End of the Month a Grow of 1% , which is actually not a really Grow of 1% beause the as i said the Signal is in DD all the time, so the Signal provider just closes some Positions with small Profit so the Month in the Statistic shows in Profit and the Signal has only positiv Months in Row. I also dont think you need to be a proffesional trader to to use the trade strategy of the Signal, its just builds a grid unter and above the overbought and oversold market acocrding to the daily RSI Ievels and waits for the market to turn. Much better signals or EA out there IMO.

The worst signal, you can see good numbers in the stadistcs but at the moment you start this signal everything goes wrong, open positions agains the trade, without Stop Level, Really??? This is not trading, is gambling.

In my opinion, why signal from Gary is the best? Because earn money is just a part of it. The most attractive part is he always share with us what he think about the market, this can broaden my horizons and know more about the Situation. EA can never provide this.

Primera semana utilizandolo y me a dado muy buenos resultados, se nota su experiencia!!! lo recomiendo, uso una cuenta de 1000 dolares y los resultados no son muy altos, asi que no hay que tener grandes espectativas, poco a poco la cuenta crecera, espero estar muy buen tiempo con este servicio.

2 months with Gary so far so good.

Started with Pacific then changed to California after checked my account size with the systems’ equity drawdown.

Caution: This system is clearly counter trend grid system, meaning that you can get big equity drawdown before all positions closing in profit or small loss.

If you have big enough account to withstand at least historical equity drawdown of the system, you can enjoy it. Should do the math before subscription.

I just renew my subscription but still did not received any signal, In fact when I chceked the signal provider history and an open trade is made. What the hell. I might not use this provider signal anymore. Its not reliable.

I have been following Blackwave's signals for three years already. Gary is a professional trader with an awesome record. He is a counter-trend trader and a key feature to his strategy is position sizing. Make sure you read and understand what's stated on the signal's description page. If you are experiencing large drawdowns, then you are not understanding it. Highly recommended. 5 stars.
