Re: Net Trap EA - variant backtesting

done some back testing on MMI v8 (as the Spins EA v8 does the backtest kinda fast for some reason; already posted on "backtesting for free" tread). From 2005-2009 (you all should have 2010 backtest already). 2006 was not a great year.

Starting balance 10000 for each year @ 3%MM compounded (as thats how i work)>>>

Not done AI as its on a diferent (slower backtesting version) unless v8 can do it as it has a reverse trade bit on it... tell me how that works for AI and ill back test that too at work. Most of the day my laptop is on all through the day and have been woirking/meetings and left the backtesting on all day).


Currently doing a full backtest of 1000 start at 3%mm in MMI30int30, componded from 2005-2010 all the way through....

I have had FNT Trader AI edition v3 for about 5 weeks and v4 for about three weeks.

FNT Trader AI Edition v4 is the AI version of FNT Trader v8. Generally Spindrift releases new mods into AI edition to me a fews weeks before he posts the normal version on here for testing.

I will be sending out FNT Trader v4 to those on the AI list at months end once I am fully happy the RT & SO and all other features work fully on MA40 and MMI. One live test so far worked but want another AI call to apear before months end to double check all is ok.

If anyone is desperate for AI v4 (whih has the normal v7 & V8 features) please PM me and I will send it asap but use will be at your own risk as I have not fully confirmed it is all 100% yet.

hi mark - i'm having trouble with AI_v002 not turning itself off at 08:30, it enters without any problem. could you please re-send me the inputs for this ea? i should have scored this morning, but the trade looks as though it ran until it dipped out (for 30) at 12:53.
thanks in advance

Then something is seriously wrong and you need to check all settings. Market reached about 40 pips profit from INT entry today so I can only assume the TP you have set is 50 ?

Certainly is not 30 unless you have major MT4 problems? Have you lost the original.set files I sent? They all work and you just need to change the MM section from 10p / pip to what you trade per pip.

Sending the files again will make no difference as they will be the same as you have already. I have not made any alterations for what I sent out with FNT Trader AI v2 other than my personal ones is now set to MMI in place of MA40.

I will issue this at month's end but is is simple to make the adjustment's yourself.

I would take some time to look at Spin's EA paramters .xls sheet and try to understand what settings you are running. Seems harsh maybe but using the EA is pretty simple if you take the time to read Spin's instructions and learn the functions.

Hey Kevin,

Sorry I haven't returned your messages, the day-job has been manic this week catching up from having Friday and half of Monday off. Give me a shout over the weekend and we'll do a remote support session.

If anyone else wants help setting up or trouble-shooting EA setup or MT4 setup then PM me and we'll set a time and I can do a remote support login to help. I have a busy day-job so best times for me are Tues to Fri 6-9pm and weekends at pre-arranged times. I use this software for work and its perfectly safe: http://www.beamyourscreen.com I can't do lots of support for hundreds of people but will help you out if you've tried yourself and got stuck.

Just did the back test for 30int30 for MMI and AI-RT for the bad year of 2006... an interesting graph (3%MM compounded, starting at 10000).....

Hi Maxi,

interesting results. Are the AI-RT results for MA40 AI-RT or MMI AI-RT?

It's the MA40 AI-RT.....

BUT!!!

Look what happens to it when we combine MMI to AI-RT (ie MMI AI-RT) over the bad losing 2006!!! (i have tried to match up all the MMI parameters to the v2 of EA AI) Here... we don't lose... we gain... eventhough it is a small amount... the year 2006 was not a loss >>>

[also, i have included the NT 30/50 original for comparison to everything].

Interesting. That's becasue I beleive the AI is a very powerful indicator set and most of the time if it agrees with the MA40 or MMI then the odds are nicely stacked in your favour, but you have to be brave to trade against it. Even MMI AI RT is top performer in 2011 so far showing that even Antionio's cracking MMI should be reverse traded it is disagrees with the AI.

I will send you FNT Trader AI Edition v4 this weekend as requested. This is very important below because if the few difficult years can be flattned out by adding AI RT to MMI then it makes the compounding for the good years after it much more of a return by not having a drawdown year.

marvellous bit of work....and what I have started to trade now. Note the summer month dip, I wonder if June and July are the months to avoid? Certainly were last year.

This only happened in 2006, all the other years so far was great, have a look at the compounded graphs

I'm yet to do all the year continous from 2005-2010 with MMI, AI-RT and MMI AI-RT next week... will see how that looks.
