automated renewal of FSB Pro

There is every reason for many, maybe most, closing Logic positions to say that during bar execution, there is no way to know what the high will turn out to be, or the Lo, or the average or the close.  So the EA HAS TO use the values from the previous bar.  I have understood that for 5-6 years!!!  What did I write that gave the impression I didn't?  What I've been saying is that it seems to me that, for closure, it is a good idea to have the bar interval as short as possible.  It doesn't hurt to have your closing logic conditions checked against the data as often as possible. Does it???

Does MT4 Demo 'Balance' have to be same as FSB Pro EA 'Balance

My screenshot shows exactly what I've been telling you. Positions are opened by the EA that modify the Equity, but they  don't result in the Account Balance being changed.  It looks to me like the EA is not able to modify the Balance.  And the reason I manually made a few closures was to see if a direct action on My part could result in EA positions being closed.  That's consistent.  The EA can't, But I can manually.  Perhaps because I'm the Administrator.  I haven't closed any positions manually since I learned that I could.  I say again, we've [including you & Blaisserboy] have essentially shown that  everything works fine up until the times the EA Should make gains or losses to the Balance.  The Real World.  My EAs typically have Take profits at 200 or less and Stop Limits at  least ten times that.  The EA you've seen on FSB Pro has Executed orders= 355, Win/Loss ratio = 0.91, Time in position = 72%, profit/day=1.29USD, Max Equity drawdown = 3.07%, Minimum Balance =2000.0USD.  In other words, the EA shows a profit from the gitgo, and never falls beneath that level while testing 19821 bars.  I do not expect that kind of performance in the real world of the Account Balance.  BUT I do believe that in several years of trying I ought to have been able to obtain at least one winner!!!

Why shouldn't they say it? Do you have some real examples where PBV is working the wrong way? Before making any statements, you could study your strategy a bit, it would take less than 5 minutes to do so, you're experienced FSB user after all.

If it says "automatically set", it is automatically set. Controlling PBV is the job of FSB, and you can see it yourself from the indi window whether it is turned on or not. And verify it on chart if it works as intended.

If you interfere and close positions every time you get up in the morning while those are in -ve, they're going to be losses in the balance sheet!!!

If your SC shows current price at 1.08738 and TP at 1.07755 and SL at 1.10617, expert needs to close the positions automatically for what reason?

As I understand it, with a 64-bit Pc, it is located at the proper place.  Of course many older programs will not even function properly there.

And what I have been saying for months is that FSB Pro EAs, when exported and attached to a MT4 chart, open positions that change the Account "Equity" up and down, but only seem to change the Account Balance - if at all - negatively. 

For the past several years I have not had a single positive [winning] MT4 Demo Account.  None! Many, many winning FSB Pro EAs but No winning MT4 accounts.

Can someone move this exchange to a more appropriate 'thread'???

You're not listening to me.  I have never said that the exported FSB Pro EA, when attached to the proper MT4 Demo chart has to perform exactly as on FSB Pro.  It doesn't trade at all!! Now, here's a clue, on occasion, when I get up in the morning, the MT4 Balance shows an impending profit or loss, but apparently not enough to trigger my EA's Exit criteria.  I can manually close those trades and add or subtract to my balance.  But what I'm trying to tell you guys is that for some reason, those profits [or losses] are never triggered automatically.  Now, here's something else.  I am trading on a 64-bit PC running Windows 10 and my FSB Pro is included, as it should be, in Program Files (x86).  I am Program Administrator and I am frequently told by dropdown boxes that some program seeks to make changes to my PC and asks me if I give permission for it to make such changes.  I virtually always give such permission. Now, could that be my problem? That the exported FSB EA attached to a MT4 chart has to ask 'permission' to close a trade.  I don't know enough about how Popov's EA interacts with MT4, Win10, etc etc.

The simple answer is no, demo balance cannot be the same as FSB balance. Can you make a difference between backtesting and demo trading? How did you come up to the idea that future trades have to match a backtest to a T??? I mean how it is possible to have the same trades through 2 different datasets? Sounds like an occult theory...

Let me explain once more what I said to you in your former thread: I took your strats, put them on demo, put them on strategy tester and they worked as expected. Values matched, trades matched, everything checked out.

The part, which contains "profit"... FSB doesn't produce profit, it is a tool for strategy development, strategies when traded can produce profit. And it is down to the user to develop and choose the strategies.
