    Hi!

    In attachment you can find best parameters for now for AUDUSD M5 optimized from 2012-now. It works on Price Action EA 2.0.

    Report for fixed lot:

    Graph for fixed lot:

    Graph for auto-lot:

    That’s all what I have right now. If anyone have better set please share.

    Please remember that graph with auto-lot is only made for testing purposes to see drawdown and losses.

    As you can see on graph with fixed-lot this set is very stable.

    Regards and good luck!

    Hi. In the backtest I get numerous times this error: PRICE_ACTION_EA_2.0 AUDUSD,M5: SL too big: 75616 points from Sell Stop – changed to Max_SL: 3200 points.
    Is this normal?
    Thanks.

    Hi!

    It isn’t error, it’s just an information. I wrote this algorithm to protect you from too big SL. 75616 points is too far away from Stop to ignore it and you should check your data on AUDUSD. I will explain you more precisely. If you use my set you should have: Candles_To_Take_To_SL=190 and SL_Distance_from_Extreme=250. It means that (in case of Sell Stop) EA will put Stop Loss 250 points (25 pips) over highest value taken from 190 candles from the past. If you have some “extra” candle or tick in your historical data (in past 190 candles from Stop, which gives this info) and that candle or tick is high above real highest value EA will check it and will protect you by putting SL to value from parameter “Max_SL”. Do you have any errors in report after backtest? If yes – download data from Tickstory (set attributes “read-only” to these new files) and start again.

    Regards!

    Thanks for your answer. I use tickstory to backtest with tickdata. It’s the first time I get this error. I upload pics of my backtest on USDCAD.

    You wrote about AUDUSD and now it’s USDCAD? You have problem with both pairs?

    p.s. I’ve just tested both pairs and results are ok. If you have something different than I, please let me know on Skype (theinvestbay). I’ll try to help you.

    Thanks for your interest. Yes , I have the same problem with both pairs. I will try to backtest another ea to check if the problem is with my data and I will let you know.

    Figured out what the problem was. I didn’t have tickdata for all timeframes due to lack of HD space. Here is my backtest with spread 8 for the last 2 years.
    I also wanted to ask, if you run the ea during major news.

    Hi!

    EA is optimized without any news filter, so it should be resistant to all news. I run EA during all news, but it should be checked on longer time, because there is no guarantee, since we don’t know what can happen in future. Always the safest way is to disable AutoTrading 1 hour-30min before news.

    Regards!
