...working with MT4-Tracker I get a bit confused with the scales...

I've attached a screen shot of what I see when loading your *.htm report.  I'm getting -3.67, and not -367.  It would help if you could attach a screen shot of the entire application.  I would like to see what the chart looks like at the bottom.

I also use USDJPY and that works.  Or do you mean you are running a Japanese version of Windows.  Probably the simplest and quickest way to find out is to give it a try.  If something doesn't work please let me know.  I'm one person and I only test on my accounts -- so, I have know way of knowing in advance if it will work under your specific conditions.

I think I know what the problem is.  In the US we use a decimal point (.) when displaying currency, and it looks like your German version of Windows ignores that.  It should use a comma (,) instead, but for some reason it isn't.  Popov warned me about problems like this.

I'm pretty sure this is fixable, but I'll need a little help from you.  I'll make some modifications to the application and then ask you to check it and send a screen shot.  It may require a few rounds of testing.  Is that okay with you?

Sure, whatever you need I will try to support

I've uploaded a new version of MT4 Tracker.  Perhaps this fixes the missing decimal (.) point.  Even though many EU countries use comma (,) instead of decimal, MT4 Tracker is coded in a way to always use a decimal point.  Here's a link to the updated version:

When you have a chance, I'll be curious to learn whether this fixes the problem for you.

Re: MT4 Tracker -- new tool for monitoring & pruning EA portfolio

Hey sleytus, I just wanted to chip in and say thank you for this really useful piece of software. I'm using it combined with the EA Studio portfolio function and it is just great for keeping an eye on the various individual strategies that make up the portfolio.

I'll post any thoughts or suggestions here, but I don't want to add too much to your workload - you already have several other useful comments and suggestions from other users, so I'm happy to just read those mostly.

I have tested and it looks o.k. Sorry that it took a while, but I was not home.
Thank you for the support

Thanks for the good word -- appreciate it.  I'm fairly new to forex trading and still can't believe how fortunate I was to discover Popov's software this past March.  If it wasn't for Popov's software there would be no need to manage a portfolio.  In fact, back in March I didn't even know what a 'portfolio' was...

That is excellent news!  Thanks very much.

Re: MT4 Tracker -- new tool for monitoring & pruning EA portfolio

I wonder if the program can be adjusted to also look at MT5. I suspect that Metaquotes will one day phase out MT4.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

I'd be happy to look into it.  Would you happen to have one or more *.htm Report files from MT5 you could send me?  All my accounts and EAs currently use MT4.

Re: MT4 Tracker -- new tool for monitoring & pruning EA portfolio

This one from the 'History' page

I just whipped this up quickly to get some entries in it

There are buy stop and buy limit orders in this one so the page is a bit messed up

I will leave the thing running  to get more entries in case you require that

(one day I will optimize the thing so that some profits appear, hahahaha)

Hi, tracker counts PL without paid commission. And you paid -2 435.94 usd smile You have nice portfolio, but after commissions you are destroyed. From your commission I can see that I am getting lower (using tickmill, 4$ round turn for 1 lot). So if you make research and choose lower cost broker you would be in profit. Have a nice day.

2 721.65 profits  -2 435.94 commissions  -416.22 swap = -130.51 total

I too noticed better results with mt4 tracker due commissions and swap, however not that much like in rantampla case . I think it would be good idea for next update include these trading costs.

Re: MT4 Tracker -- new tool for monitoring & pruning EA portfolio

I am getting close to 1500 trades in one MT4 and the MT4 Tracker is getting more and more helpful as the number of trades increases.

I am slowly starting to see how I have made some bad decisions in EA Studio so this software is really beneficial.

Looking at MT5, there is no magic number so this may not be worthwhile pursuing.

I am thinking of getting a copier so as to move the trades to MT4 or else using MT4 only, undecided at this point.
