Move Trades in Profit to Break Even

Hi,

can someone help me out how can i modding the eas that when a open order is xx pips in profit than modify the stop loss to break even?

Editing Portfolio Experts in EA Studio

Hello Traders,

I'm working on a tool that will allow importing a Portfolio Expert, calculating the real performance (since a particular date) filtering the strategies and exporting back with the original magic numbers.

I'll post details soon. It hope to have this tool released for testing within 10 days.

I'll try to make it fixing the filing type automatically. Other option would be to show a message: "Please call MetaQuotes to fix their order filling type". It is possible after receiving 458832636495943 calls to consider to fix the problem within the next few years.

FSB Pro Optimization Sequence

Yes, you are right.  By 1st optimizing the Biggest parameter 1st or the Higher Time Frame 1st, we are looking for a bigger or more stable trend movement and once this trend movement is found, we then move on to re-fine/optimize the lower time frame/parameter.  So thus, using the biggest parameter/time frame as a "preset" indicator to guide us in the rest of the optimization process.

I'm not sure how the current Optimization algorithm works/the rationale or thinking behind it.  For example, when it is optimizing the 1st rule, does it also take into account of the rest of the rules (eg 2nd rule, 3rd rule, 4th rule etc remain in the equation when optimizing?).  If yes, then it's like trying to optimize the Biggest rule 1st to "fit" well with the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rule....which is not what I'm proposing.

I'm hoping somehow the algorithm would optimize the Biggest Time Frame 1st (without taking into account of the rest of the rules, as if that's the only rule and then move on to add the 2nd rule (the 2nd highest time frame/parameter) and optimize the 2nd rule to fit the 1st rule (instead of optimizing the 1st rule to fit the rest of the rules).

So it's like optimizing rule by rule, layer by layer.

In equation form, it's like Optimize Rule 1 (which is the Biggest Time Frame/parameter).  Equation = Optimize 1st rule only and once 1st rule most optimal parameters are found, add in the 2nd rule and optimize the 2nd rule to fit best with the 1st rule.

Not Optimize 1st rule while other rules are still in the equation eg Equation = 1st rule (optimize), while 2nd rule, 3rd rule and 4th rule are also taken into consideration as part of the equation (so that all the 4 rules together = profitable strategy.  The problem is, what if the 2nd rule and 3rd rules are lousy rules and we are trying to optimize the 1st rule to fit into those remaining lousy rules and we ended up with a lousy 1st rule.

Like preset indicators in EA Studio, with larger values for parameters.
In this case we can use EA studio in higher TF to find parameters of indicators and finally use them as preset indicators at lower ones.

My broker is Activtrade and correct order fill setting used and working is ORDER_FILLING_IOC..

Thanks

Spreadbet Pricing

Is it possible? Perhaps via changing some of the values in the symbols page?

To clarify what spreadbet pricing is its basically simple pricing. So with FX a trade volume of 1 (1 Lot) would give a variable return on 1 pip profit based on whats being traded. In spreadbetting a trade volume of 1 is £1 per pip regardless of whats being traded.

So a profit of 10 pips with a trade volume of 1 would be £10 profit for EURUSD, EURJPY, GBPUSD and whatever.

Can it be done in FSB?

  • optimization with no protection parameters permitted

  • optimization of protection parameters by keeping constant all the other parameters

That's what I meant when I wrote "For those who just want to refine your exit rules only in the Protection Section, we can then un-check/tick all the indicators sections.

For those who only want to refine the entry/exit rules only, then likewise, un-check/tick the Protection Section...However, this method means we have to break up the optimizing time/procedure into 2 separate efforts instead of 1 seamless procedure."

I'm not sure whether my explanation below is what you are asking about...

The reason I suggest we optimize the Bigger/highest parameter 1st is the same concept I suggest that when we build our EA,input the Higher time frame first and then follow by the lower time frame.

In another words, We use eg H4/D1 indicator to determine the trend and the lower time frame to trigger the entry.  So the bigger parameter is liken the Higher Time frame to determine the trend and the lower parameter to improve the entry accuracy.

1. But how we can do it with EA Studio?
