Hey Folks, sorry I didnt look here this morning, till now,

Trying to think what might be happening, i have to read it again.. I have a horrible head ache right now..

Allow DLL imports MUST BE CHECKED, or ACTIVE
Alow imports of external exports, MUST BE CHECKED, or ACTIVE,
Allow Live Tradeing, Must Be Checked, or active

NO EMAIL -- Leave Blank
Enter password and System ID

FXLOT Multiplier -- enter number "1 "

You Must Drag FXMonitor EXPERT to a chart, I use EURUSD,

******* DONT EVER CLOSE THE CHART********

Your current setting will be saved when you just X out of the MT4 platform..

When you fire it back up, everything should be ready to go, without adjusting or turning on or dragging to the charts..

Well, of course, the Expert Tab at the very top, should be green, and the smily face.

Im never propted to save anything, so Im not sure what that is about..

Now, your ready to go..

Also, when your looking at the ForexDesk site, Everything needs refreshed. Nothing, But the current price, move, but when you close, you have to refresh the page to see the results..

Your trade should show up on the TRADE PAGE, and see your closed trades in the HISTORY PAGE,.

I dont use my FXMonitor Chart for anything, just always leave it open, or you have to go thru everything again..

Choose another chart to work from, and indicators and what not.

Evertime you make a trade, it will relay to the ForexDesk, But BE AWARE, its not instant..

For instance, I scalp, Im in trades for no more then 4-5 minutes, " Usually" and sometimes, just seconds.

And seconds can be expensive..

So, advisable, dont scalp, unless your scalping 20+, or long term trends.

For instance, today I made 160 pips @ 1 lot, 65 win streak, in like 55 minutes, in 45 trades, but you cant tell that by looking at my Forexdesk account..

Getting the timing and adjustments to Forex Desk can be frustrating, for my style anyways..

Again, sorry I didnt get to this earlier,

Have a great weekend, and great job this week fellas..,,

Still having problems with this MT4 EA from FXDesk, guy's.

The FX ID and FX P/Word are all saved and there o.k when I start up my MT4.
I have the Allow Live Trading and Allow DLL Imports checked in the Common Tab of the EA Settings box.
I have the Experts Advisor tab on my MT4 toolbar de-pressed so it is showing green and I also have the Smiley face in the top right hand corner of my charts.

I know that on the FXDesk instructions it tells you to have the Confirm DLL function calls un-checked but what about the Allow Import of external experts ? Currently I have this un-checked.

Also, and this may be the problem but I am un-sure...when I start up my MT4 I have the Alert box come up in the top left corner of my charts and it is saying - "Trade Monitor is already running. Only one should..."
That is all I can read of the warning as I don't have a clue how to open the Alert up so I can read the whole message...lol...sorry for sounding so dumb, I also feel dumb about this.
Supposed to be a budding trainee trader...that's a laugh...lol.

I'm open to suggestions guy's and any help will be appreciated.

Best Wishes

Harmudge.

Harmudge, its just a simple problem, relax, take a deep breath, it has nothing to do with the trading aspect, dont get discouraged..

The imports for externals MUST BE CHECKED,

It might be your problem, if that dont work, i have another Idea.

I will be back on at 3:30ish EST, so if it works or not, leave a note here, Lets get this taken care of for ya.

Humm, Ok, What size lots are you trying to trade?

Also, Look at the top of the MT4 platform, click on Tools, Options,expert advisros,

Make sure the last box on that page, ( allow external exports ) is CLICKED,

none of the rest are tho, just the Very last box..


Now, if you followed everything that I wrote, it should be working..

If it isnt, then I have no clue what the problem is, might be your firewall, but i know nothing about that stuff, so i cant be any help with that..

To the rest of ya, Good luck, I was holding tight for the past 2 weeks around 3-4th place, then I messed up really bad letting a EA run wild by accident a few times..

darn templates,,

plus, Im going to be honest, this is fun and all, but its just not workable with my method of scalping.

Made 77 trades today, for 213 pips, 3 loses, with a total of 3 pips lost.

I just cant really concentrate on my trading, and making sure Forexdesk closes in profit.

Might try Long term trading, but Im focused on something else right now..

We'll see what happens, but Atilla, keep rolling bro

Hi all,

just joined the forum and the game as well.
Quite fun this tournament, will there be an october edition ? (may have missed posts relating to this question in the last couple of pages).
Quite large spreads that we have here, but interesting anyway.
Thanks again for organising,
YS,
A.

Great trading dude - 144 winning trades out of 167 (y)

Thank you GK,

Managed to scalp my way whilst trying to manage risk and exposure to the big swings using 1min charts on the whole. Only get to look at the bigger picture in the evenings.

Bearish on Euro as I have it testing 1.20-30 range but may not get there until Greece default outcome is certain...

I still think the top spot can be anyones. Being last week - most will be risking all to get the top place.

Will continue with same strategy of placing longs and shorts and taking profits as and when they appear.


Good luck to everyone (y)
