2020-09-14 Back after a big break
I am back, I had a few weeks of vacation, did continue to test my systems and funded a small amount for Live Trading (more below).
I implemented the HLHB Trend Catcher system as an EA and did back testing.
I did modify the 2 MA she uses as per my backtesting, and right now only follow GBPUSD and EURUSD.
It might be that the systems I was implementing were mostly on the 5MIN, but the results on the 1Hour are positive and I am willing to try some seed money.
So, thats for the background, now for the real trading.
2 Trades last week
- 2020-09-09 BUY EURUSD at 1.18172 stopped out at 1.18401 for +22 pips
- 2020-09-10 SELL GBPUSD at 1.29704 reached a target of 1.28187 for +150 pips
Note, altho I created an EA, which runs in the Demo environment, I do place the trades manually in PROD. I do not want to let the EA run by itself yet. Too bad because for example I missed a good opportunity yesterday, but I do not want to place trades that I cannot follow live. So, now I have to wait for the right conditions to occur again, which is fine.
Do you guys run EA in live? or do manual trades based on EAs?
