The months started slow but, not such a bad ending. I'll get the totals out Friday.

For me I had a full week of no trades. It doesn't happen very often but it will occasionally. It's over the 37% gain mark so isn't the lowest month I have had.

According to your Account 2 you had trades on 25, 29 and 30 of this month.

So did your Account 1

Good morning tkbieber, please excuse my lack of knowledge about EAs, but can you answer the following questions.
-Are you saying that you do not know what indicators and filters the EA is using for its entry signals?
-How did you add your special sauce to juice it up if you don't know what its inbuilt indicators are?
-What time is the entry trade updated on your MetaTrader4 page? After the trade has closed ? or is there simply a delay on posting the entry? I was watching at 7.15 GMT, as shown on the MetaTrader4 page, today but saw no new entry.

Sorry I am not Tkbieber but I can answer to this question too.

Most EAs have built-in parameters you can adjust to fine tune the performance.
Tkbieber has some custom settings for the EA thats his secret sauce.

Yes, I've changed up the settings and entry times. Far from what the manual says. 7:15 is server time for mt4stats site and 1:15 easthern, so that would be what, 5:15 gmt?
