My Expert Advisor Reaching Top 10 in Automated Trading Championship 2008

October 14, 2008 by

As I write this post, my MetaTrader expert advisor is at the 9th position of the Automated Trading Championship 2008. Even if it’s a temporary situation, that’s great success for me, considering that my ATC 2007 expert advisor wasn’t even profitable. Currently my championship account equity is at $28,953.88 — up from the initial $10,000 account size. The championship started on October 1st, so it’s only a 10th day of the competition and more than two months left before December 26th when it ends.

This expert advisor is a simple statistical EA, which quite similar to the example statistical EA I posted here in August (StatRunnerExample.mq4).

    Hello, Do you have tested this on Live account?

    No, but as the results of the championship have shown, it’s not a good EA to trade on live account. It has some real problems when the price moves near the levels that it has never seen before.

    It proved to be not as good as it was during the first week of trading. I don’t think it’s a good thing to share the losing EA.

    i have modified your EA for GU H4.. the curve looks good.. averagely only 1 loss out of 117.. and 24 losses out of 3000 trades in 3 years backtest… send me an email.. maybe together we can make it better…

    something suspicious about the rl.txt file… is it really neural or just peeping the history…? it’s good when it meets data that it ever met, but lossing badly in brand new data. In other words: it’s only good in second backtesting and more, but not in real. Correct me if i’m wrong.

    Of course, in second backtesting it will be lossless. But it’s not meant for backtesting. The EA records the successful patterns and tries to compare the new data to these patterns judging if it’s good point to enter a position.

    btw, andrei, have u tried to add some classic filters such as MAs, stoch, or maybe RSI? I found that sometime it can help avoiding selling in oversold or buying in strong bearish. And what about asian session? Could it be better work time instead of bussy hours?

    Andrei Reply:

    Adding filters only hurts, because any additional indicator adds its own lag to the trading process.

    what kind of lag? opening position in the middle of candle instead of at the begining? If yes, i’ve tried to put sort of a minute slippage, so it won’t OP after x minute since candle open. Oya, i put the EA in M15-H4 chart. IMHO most losses is because OBOS and silly mistake ie buy when MA heavily bearish, so I believe once it’s well filtered it would hopefuly be better. At least when it find “never learned” situation this filter will do some guiding.

    could you please explain about the SaveKohonenMap in deinit, does it mean it only save the “lesson” when it’s just off? so if i run it a year without deinit it, where is the data stored and does the data still “involved” in OP decision?

    thx for your kindly replay, some coders here have been experimenting with this EA for months, we’ll appreciate if u can give a little enlightment :)
