Hey @Traderjohnsblog thanks for the heads up.
I will certainly follow the baby pips program.
Trading manually before using EAs. That's the kind of advice I was looking for. I've been coding for a month and i was not sure how long would it take before being comfortable and profitable. I will definitely find a way to trade manually. What i'm doing right now is building a trading plan as many has suggested it.
Back testing seems like an art of itself. I feel like back testing can also make a strategy looks less profitable. Am I right?
