so these guys are not Australians (not that i have anything against them, just wondered).

Works out £142.84 with the discount you arranged (save £21).

(PS backtest halfway there... started 2001 to 2006... its midway through 2004. I can send you what has been done so far if you wish).

Re: TulipFx' Kangaroo EA

surferking started this thread My profit from running it at 10% risk on £2k account so far in April has been £262.68 on AUDUSD and £167.96 on EURUSD which seems to be about what I expected. Seems reasonable for the fees.

5% risk setting would probably have been about half that so I'd say £1-2k account size minimum to make it worth running.

Strongly recommend reading everything on their blog which is interesting for general trading as well as understanding how it all works and therefore your risk tolerance and return needs etc.

Re: TulipFx' Kangaroo EA

surferking started this thread EURUSD just bagged 18.5 pips this afternoon, so £75 offset against this morning's NetTrap result.

Incidentally my results seem to be 0.5-1.5 pips better than Birt's Review's and Kangaroo's myfxbook.com pages, most likely due to better spreads with SLM.

For some reason though the EURUSD trades aren't running on my demo account so the signature link not showing true growth since the beginning at the moment. I'll try to get it sorted shortly.

Re: TulipFx' Kangaroo EA

surferking started this thread Dear Marcus,

Kangaroo has enjoyed a great week so far, racking up a total of over 73 pips..!

As you know, we hate losing that profit (and potentially more), so we've decided not to trade tomorrow.

Here's what's happening tomorrow (Wednesday):

1. US FOMC Statement and Interest Rate. This release has shown to have a possibly large impact on any USD pairs. Look for widening of spreads that might trigger SLs and spikes both ways.

2. US FOMC PUBLIC Press Conference. This is a quarterly release that has never been held publicly before. Topics might include future interest rate discussion and the recent S&P negative outlook on US economy. Could cause increase in volatility, disrupt current trends and thus have an unpredictable outcome on your trades.

Please protect your profits and trade wisely: don't trade at all tomorrow. Take the day off. Go fishing. Play chess. Clean your house. And enjoy the charts while being flat. If you're bored, send us your best trade story. Just don't trade. We won't.

Thanks again to all of you for supporting our work. We try hard. And we will try even harder to make things better for you all.

Until next time, green pips everyone!

Ozzie, Dutch & The TulipFX Team

So thats 10% on AUDUSD and 10% EURUSD separate or all together in total?

And let me add.... the results look good and will take this on at the end May.

Separate. I haven't seen them trade at the same time yet so there's no correlation. My aim is to build uncorrelated strategies to smooth out the overall equity curve. So far this week has been good for that with Kangaroo offsetting some of the Net Trap losses.
