Back from vacation, good time to make a little analysis. Without internet access it was a good opportunity to let the EA doing the job by himself.
Let’s be clear. As I was thinking in my first post, making a 1% daily every day is not sustainable or you will take dramatic risk and loose potentially everything when market will move in the bad direction. But the goal of a moonshot is to develop positive things as well.
The good point is to see that EA is positive and growth is coming. The EA close when reach 1% of the current balance. I have 2 versions now, one with a 0.1 lot size and a second one with 1 lot size. Risk is more important on the second one but daily target is reached more often. Main difference is the drawdown. Only 6% on the first version, versus 20% on the second one (very risky).
What nice, a total 17% gain, (8.46% in absolute). The safe EA (0.1 lot) at 5.66% and the 1 lot at 11.27%. On the 0.1 lot size I closed manually sometimes which occurred in a loss one day, now I’m leaving it on its own.
To give a quick overview of each of them.
0.1 lot size daily
And the 1 lot daily size
Of course it’s a test, and never a holy grail, but always cool to see the progress.
Have a nice day,
