Hi Adam. I run a combination of EAs from this forum and my own. I am running Petko’s recent top 30. I am trialling different filtering systems to see what is the most effective. I am still on demo and have been on this site for 1 year. I am close to going live and should be next month. I have my own systems and they are normally a combination of what Petko teaches and some of my own idea’s. All I can say is test, test, test….. I have literally run 1000’s of tests over the last year…… Most have not worked but I learn small lessons along the way and keep building up my knowledge.
I am focussing on H1 at the moment as I have too many tests going on to look at other time frames but M15 will be next. The Reactor settings I normally stick to are what Petko teaches here: H1, 5 years of data, 1.2 PF, 500 COT’s. I run the reactor till I get 100+ strategies. (On some pairs this will take a few days…) I keep the pairs equally balanced for each test. So if I want to trade EUR, GBP and USD I will have EURUSD, GBPUSD, EURGBP. Each currency appears twice so balanced…..
I am about to start some tests adding in CAD and AUD so will trade EU GU EJ GJ AC GA EC AJ UC. Each pair appears 3 times so always balanced. At this stage I stay away from NZD and CHF.
Then I run the chosen setup on Demo and usually run 2-3 “Live” platforms with different filtering systems. Which usually include “let the first 2,3,4,5 trades through unfiltered” and then “start culling the low performers by either PF or $ Net balance…..”
Again, these are all just tests run in parallel so I can see what performs the best……
I am keen to look at crypto and other commodities but trying to focus on 1 thing at a time…..
