.It took me 10,000 hours and a cost of $200,000 , to develop these EAS
So assuming you spent 8 hours a day doing this and had 4 weeks of holiday each year then it has been nearly 6 years of full time effort. Is that correct ?

Heres what im looking at at the moment.

I dont know my way around metatrader. Haven't used it in years. Took me long enough to see that 'account history' was under 'view' - 'terminal' !
There haven't been any trades at my end that ive seen. I deleted my account a second ago and re-registered a new one

On currencies we use 3 digit experts, on oil we use 2 digit experts and 4 digit on dax and dow.It appears wrong experts have been loaded

Did you load experts yourself or did you use profiles and click on V2 ent auto trade?
