Hi there,
I'm now testing myRandom on FinFx Ecn broker.
I set all the parameters = 0, then enter the values manually.
But it's still not trading, why?
There is no Error message.

Thankyou,
tony

There is a problem, after it opens one trade, it won't open another one because I'm entered the values back into the EA properties. It's not practical for me to enter Tp and Sl everytime it opens another trade. Do you mind fixing this? because I"m doing some serious testing with this and getting good results, I"m combing this Ea with other trailings stop Eas and getting some amazing results.
Thankyou So much!!

Ok, I'm running myRandom on Ecn. So I manually enter Tp and Sl, and it opens one trade. Then I input Tp and Sl into the Ea parameters in the properties. But then after the first trade is closed, it doesn't open a second trade. Why is that? Or do I have to manually enter Tp and Sl for every trade that opens?
Thanks,

You enter TP and SL into settings or where? Or does it first open a trade and then you adjust the TP and SL manually on the already open positions?

Then I input Tp and Sl into the Ea parameters in the properties.

What for? You are on ECN - it won't allow you to open new orders with SL and TP on them, will it?

But then after the first trade is closed, it doesn't open a second trade. Why is that?

It opens new orders only when new bar has opened on a chart. Did you wait for this to happen?

Or do I have to manually enter Tp and Sl for every trade that opens?

If you are on ECN - yes, you'll have to add TP and SL manually on each position. Though it's possible to modify the EA so that it will do it automatically.

Ok, thankyou so much. If you have time, do you mind modifying it so that the EA will do it automatically?
Thankyou,

Yes, its working on Ecn now, but just one minor issue: when the first lot of trades have closed, it doesn't open any new ones. E.g. Max trades open =2, so 2 trades have opened and then closed, it won't open another new trade.
Thankyou,
tony

Did you wait RandomEntryPeriod bars for the entry to happen?

My mt4 is doing some strange things, sometimes the EA won't open trades after one trade is finished, sometimes it will. E.g. USDCAD, after closing one trade, on the 30th of Jan, randomentry period = 24 on an 1hr chart, did not open anymore trades.

Hello EarnForex forum members,

very interesting EA!
I installed it and added it for 10 different pairs in one account but the EA doesnt open a trade in more than 3 charts.
What is to do?

Thanks and greetings
