This is a message to our MQL5 subscribers: We suffered severe network issues on Friday - disconnections and freeze due to ISP.
In adverse market conditions, even if our whole equity has suffered a normal loss in a DD phase (loss on November is -1.20% on master account https://bit.ly/_XCW ), you may have observed abnormal and "suspicious" behaviour in the MQL5 strategy.
When connection has recovered (around 6PM GMT), I decided to close all open trades before the weekend in case I lose connection again before the close of the market.
I aknowledge this is not an optimalsituation for those of you who have small accounts.
But please REMEMBER: Issues or not, *Commodities is volatile asset class*, and min. position size may be unappropriate if you can't afford it. Profits can be substantial, but potential losses and volatility are in accordance.
Again, sorry for the mess - ISP confirmed that they are working on the line during the weekend to fix it.
Since we have a hand on the price of the signal, it has been decreased to 30 (-40%) until the end of the year to compensate. Because I think what happened yesterday (from your perspective) might sound "unacceptable" or at least, not very professional.
Anyways, good weekend to everyone!
PS: I'm not used to communicate often (and I wont do it again), because: 1. It is not necessary 2. Communication wih retail investors is regulated in many jurisdictions (including mine) and I do'nt want to be involved in conversation and have to justify choices/ trades/ strategies we apply for ourself with our own money. 3. Your subscription is legally collected by MQL, which means you are an MQL client (we deal only B2B) 4. Open communication on forums leads to endless conversations with people who always have something to argue - only when there is a loss, of course!
BUT, we all are people, and when problem occurs due to exogenous events, I think everyone deserve an explanation.
