    Hello Allison,

    Could you please share how do you set the Generator to work? What are the settings?

    Please, attach some pictures so we can see better.


    Hi, I am new here.

    When I use the Generator, it often gives me almost the exact strategies in the same round. It uses the same indicators but slightly different parameters.

    If I restart the Generator, I will get a very different strategy, follow by many strategies using the same indicators.

    I check that it is not “lock” nor “link”.

    What should I do?

    Hey Petko,

    I trust you are doing fine!

    Any idea if we can expect to have the generated EAs from EA Studio to upload in FSB Pro?

    I want to backtest trading strategy with more details in FSB Pro, and at the same time to add some higher timeframe filters.



    Hi Mery,

    This is because people think that when they start using Expert Advisor they will set just the percentage to trade with, and they will not do anything for months or even years, and their account will grow, grow…

    This is what the scam brokers promise, and the accounts actually steadily disappear…


    In the beginning, when I took FSB Pro, I was 100% sure that I had to use the percentage as an entry. It took me about three months to realize that it is useless, and it makes the statistics worse.

    Thanks, Petko! I missed your answer. Yeah, I do not see the point of using percentage, but because it is so popular, I was curious. 🙂



    Hey Andi,

    It is something that many people are looking for, but it is not practical when following the statistics. As Roman says, the Profit Factor would be not accurate. And not only the PF but all the others except the pips…

    And having percentage entry might be useful if we double or triple accounts daily or weekly, which is not the reality 🙂

    Happy New Year’s Andi!

    I’ve been trying it on and off, but it’s really difficult to follow the profit factor since the strategy is always taking different position sizing. So my idea was to manually adjust the position size on live as the account balance increased. Then continue to follow the static position sizing on demo to ensure the strategy is still working. Let me know your thoughts!

    Happy New Year, guys!

    Did anyone test the percentage option in FSB Pro? Thre is the option to enter with certain % from the free margin, and not with lots.

    I am not a fan of it, but I was wondering if anyone can share the experience with that.

    Hey Bart,

    Happy new year!

    Yeah, that’s one of the things that I like with Petko, his detailed answers really clears up a lot of things.

    I’m still on demo for algo trading but so far so good.

    How about you?

    Bart Meijrink

    Glad to see that Petko did explain in details again.

    How is your trading going Jay-R?

    Jay-r Yuzon

    Thanks Petko.

    As always, your answers are very helpful.



    Hello Jay-R,

    sorry for the late replay, I have missed somehow the new posts here. Thanks, Bart, for answering!

    The difference is that in MT5 you can add to the position and in MT4 you will add another position.

    For example, if you trade with 0.1 lot and you have a strategy that allows maximum to 0.3 lots, in MT5 you will see in your terminal 0.1 when the new signal comes, it will rise to 0.2, and then to 0.3. But in MT4 you will see 3 orders with 0.1.

    I guess this is why he said that

    Hope that makes sense.

    Kind regards,

    Petko A

    Hey Bart,

    1-2. Yes, in addition to Petko’s courses involving FSB Pro, I also read the manual and also watched Popov’s youtube videos.  Currently, I’m taking time to read the Forex Sofware forum as well.

    Notwithstanding, I’m still having some problems in having a mental picture over what I was reading in the manual despite there are some pictures from time to time to help convey the message of what Popov was trying to explain.

    Maybe some videos from Petko, either giving examples as to their application or providing more explanation, would shed more light.

    3-5. Thanks!

    I appreciate all your comments Bart.

    Hello Jay-R,

    there is a great user guide about FSB Pro where you can find detailed information about each instrument:

    The data is the same as in EA Studio and in FSB Pro you can not create Portfolio EAs. It is a function available for EA Studio.

    The more generators you run, the slower it will become but that will not affect the performance.

    Regarding the last question…Petko should give the answer 🙂

    Hope that was useful 🙂
