  Hello Everybody !  :D

 

    Who Am I ? 

 

    This is my first post in this forum, and I am very glad to offer you an EA that I've just finish developping.

    I am always reading strategies, etc, but I had never participated yet, so this is now my humble contribution.

 

    I am a developper (Master degree in developpement) and I am a Projects' Chief in software industry.

    I am a real newbie on Forex/Binary Options, I'm interested in this market for 1 year now.

    And for now, I don't won any cent yet. But I will ;)

 

   This EA (version 1.0 ) give you all you need to test simple strategies in MT4 for Binary Options.

 

   What does it look like ?

 

   3zQoqfo.jpg

 

   HUD : It show informations about your own strategy you will developp with this EA.

   Chart : It draw on the chart arrows, check and stop for trade.

 

  How to developp you own strategies ?

 

  Here is the code where you can add your own indicators and add your code for a PUT or a CALL Option :

 

DFF4fEI.jpg

 

The example given is with RSI (Not working strategy! B)  )

 

  Properties: 

 

  •  Account Balance : Set the investment you want to start with
  •  Payout : Set the percent your broker give you on the currency (Exemple : Payout 80%)
  •  Investment : Set the investment you want to place on each binary option position (Exemple : 5€)

 

  This is all for version 1.0

 

 

  Version 2.0 ?

 

  Tell me if you want a version 2.0 with : 

  •   Money Management
  •   Martingale Steps
  •   Charts color customizations
  •   Anything else ? Proposition are welcomed! 

 

 Obviously if you see any default or bugs, feel free to react !

Hi Thanks ! Okay I will take a look at it, I didn't read all posts on the forum yet :).

 

Thats great and well documented.

Wouldn't it be better as a indicator and not as a EA?

 

No I don't think so.

EAs can do loooot more thing than indicators, like Martingale, Money Management, calculations, etc....

 

I think that everybody is sharing indicators, but no one share EAs, I wonder why ?

 

My dream, and I hope it will become reality, is to share my knowledge and my skills in developpement to obtain a good EA, based on whatever strategy.

This EA would do small but consistent profit over time and will be share with this community, to improve it, discuss it, and make it rocks.

 

I think that en EA well coded, can be much more efficient than looking a chart all day long to find an entry.

Even with Sound alert, or email, an EA would always be faster than humans.

 

So, yes, an EA in backtest show always the "better" results possible and there are lots of differencies between backtest and live trading (ping, response time, spread etc..).

But it's an indication for any people who want to test a new strategy and optimize it.

 

The EA I am developping can be used as a base for testing strategy like NEMESIS v3 or RAINBOW strategy or whatever I will test later.

I just need to have the bases working well, and I want to share it with you guys.

There are strategies that have high itm rates which are extremely profitable.

About 1 year ago I created an ea which produced excellent results on gomarkets demo platform, something like 20wins/5loss 80% itm rate from tokyo open to london close BUT when I run it on live platform the ea could not reproduce the same results due to delay in trade execution and br0ker rejecting the trades.

Therefore, this ea is a total failure BUT it will work with manual trading if the signal is converted into an arrow indicator plus alert. Unfortunately, I don't manual trade so it's junk to me although the strategy is valid.

From my experimentation with autotrading, the strategy has to be immune somewhat to br0ker's manipulation and the delay in trade execution minimal, these are critical ingredients for a profitable ea.

That's why there's a need to combine our efforts to look at this issue of delay in trade execution or else autotrading will be outside our reach even when we have in hand a strategy that's profitable in itself.

Granted we can engage professional coders on freelancer at a fee but if we can share how we can overcome this and share this expert knowledge and skill it'll be beneficial to all of us. That explains the reason for the thread I started.

About that delay well , we cant do nothing about it :( a month ago i suggested to moderator from mql5.com to add function if order is delayed by 1 second to cancel the order,    this is what i got from the moderator : 

 

Hello,

No, such option won't be added.

an order sometimes is being processed more than 1 second

You have to clarify that with your broker.

 

 

Note:  this is for EAs not manual trading

All that I can say is all you need is : 

  • a reactive EA (not laggy one with over complicated  strategy)
  • a good VPS to run MT4 with your EA all day long
  • a good Broker (I'm using GDMFX with a good Binary Option API)

I activated automatic trading with GDMFx and the NEMESIS V1 strategy yesterday, and trade were really quick, so I am not worry about that.

Thanks for the feedback bernal/konkistadorr.

Suggestion - the original signal generated on one br0kers mt4 platform and this is copy-traded onto another br0kers live account. Has anyone tried this method? Any feedback of this method or any other effective method is appreciated. Thanks
Moving on............再见

Another suggestion would be to print the results in the journal, such that you can rund the strat tester also in none visual mode and see the results afterwards in the journal, makes it a lot faster to test
