V6.0 is going live, clever new functionality. The Self Adaptive Hedging is working very nicely and is enabled in V6. There is also a multi strategy module, but it requires complex interaction between the strategies and crosses, and thus cannot be backtested, so unfortunately that module will only run in forward demo test.

If I had mantained the same lot size we'd be at 9 * 2.5 = 22%, basically on par with 50% every two months. As a matter of fact, the EA has run completely unattended through every Live event - 24/7. I can sleep at night.
So this week this account will go from V2.0 to Little Feet V3.1, and lot sizes will be doubled.
