Intro and Optimization thoughts

Topic: Intro and Optimization thoughts

Brand new here, been in forex for a bit, currently running one strategy live.... Give me a few weeks till I'm confident in the results before I share smile

I'm mainly here because I want to get some advice on optimizing, especially EA's that are already compiled making it impossible to use most of the standard walk forward methods around.

If there's already good optimization and WFA tutorials on here, please direct me to them, there's just so much content!

Currently i've got a grid scapler I want to test out and optimize, if you look up filtergrid and wordpress in google you'll find it!

Peace
Stuart

Re: Intro and Optimization thoughts

Hi Stubish, welcome to the community!

Hope you don´t use grid scalpers on your live accounts. I tested such strategies for almost 4 years and they are not successful on long term. They may last for some years, but one day, if you don´t have an equity protection strategy, it will fail.

Best Regards!

Re: Intro and Optimization thoughts

It's interesting. I've been cold on grids and martingale for a while, then last week read something interesting... 

"all systems go through draw down". 

Now I disagree, you can have a drawdownless system. But most of those are so risk averse you'll only be doing a few percent a year.

My one live strategy is not Grid, and quite risk averse. I'm hoping to take it to 15% a month. That will be the bread and butter.

I'm thinking Grids will be max 33% drawdown. And hit and run. Keep taking out the upside before it can be blown up. Once I'm playing with just profit.

I think it has space in the 'high risk' section of your greater portfolio. Using profits to feed into the more consistent systems.

I'm also looking at the genetically created systems, a few that I won't mention here (as they are competitors) and once I'm approved on this forum of course the ones here.

The management of a basked of genetically created EA's is of interest to me. If there was a way to roll them all into one EA then have some sort of management system where you prune the worst performers that would be optimal.

All that to so, NO! no grids are live yet... as I don't have capital I'm willing to loose...

The low of GBPUSD is @ 1.2900 and the current price is @ 1.2940 it should buy take profit @ 1.3000 and it should trail the stop Incase the trade fails to hit the take profit
