Hi! Just wondering what happens when i’ve loaded 99 EA’s, but only 16 seem to be trading. and only 1 in the EURJPY out of 33.
What could be the reason for this?
Should they not all trade?
16 out of 99 seems a little low.December 29, 2020 at 2:31 #70570richardParticipant
Sounds about right….. The others have just not had their entry criteria met. Also probably low liquidity this week with the holidays…..December 29, 2020 at 5:51 #70571dstoykovicParticipant
I see. Ok. We’ll, I went through them all and the settings all look right. So I guess I’ll just wait and see. It seemed quite odd. How can I tell which are the top EA’s if.only 16 are trading.
But, you’re prob right.December 29, 2020 at 6:19 #70572richardParticipant
If all the strats were opening at the same time that would be more of a concern. It would show that there is not enough diversification between the strats. That they have similar settings and indicators.
As for selecting the top EAs. There are several ways and Petko has some very good videos explaining them in detail.
You can run all the strats on demo for a certain time (1 week, 2 weeks etc) and then choose the best performers.
You can wait till a strat has a certain amount of trades with a good PF ratio. (Say min of 5 trades with a PF greater then 1.2)
You can hold back 1 month of data when creating all your strats. Then feed them back into the validator. Change the data to the last month and then run them forward. This will simulate how they would have traded in the last month. Then use the filtering option to say choose the top 10 / 5/ 3 or whatever. And then transfer these to the “Live” account. This is my preferred method but you will have to test for yourself and see what works for you…January 4, 2021 at 15:11 #71075Petko AleksandrovKeymaster
