Re: EURUSD M5 design for 1K capital

Thank you for trying my setting. Upon checking you got the RSI MA Oscillator opening logic wrong, it should be " The RSI MA Oscillator cross the zero line upward"  yours was "The RSI MA Oscillator Rise". Please correct the setup and run it again, would appreciate to post what kind of result you get , the strategy was till 30th Oct 09 and yours is until 14 Dec 09. If it still show the 5% profit per month than this strategy is robust. If you forward test it and post the result that would be wonderful as I am having problem with getting the FST and the Expert Advisor to work properly in 3 of my computers

It would be great if Admin allow us to attached the setup file in the forum, then there will be no such error.
