    Okay, looks like that strategy still might need some improvements.

      Oh, and why are there lately some 50(0) pips losses?

        It looks like the system is entering 4 trades now. The 4th trade has the 500 point stoploss. It's a good way to see if another set of settings works better in the long run. I see different magic numbers, so later the myfxbook account can be sorted by these magic numbers to view individual settings. A pretty good idea.

          Yes, I added a test trade with 50 pip SL and 50 pip TP and as suggested before a 24 pip TP & 24 pip SL, so both have 1:1 risk : reward. They have smaller lot sizes, but overall risk stays the same.

          The autumn months were not good for the system, we had a second consecutive month with loss, let's see what December brings to us. The tests show us that we should end in profit in the long term. DD period in backtesting lasted for almost 3 months, let's see how it goes with real trading.

            Tickmill depleted the account. I won't be using that broker anymore. It opened trades in 0-1s and seems spread was so huge all ended in loss and over the SL. Instead of a nice profit, I got slipped by over 50 pips and it opened buy and a sell at once. Not only I got a margin call on it but also funds are in debt to the broker. It's not much, but I won't be using them and I don't recommend them for gold trading, we can clearly see their spread and liquidity is not good.

            ICMarkets at least didn't open buy orders, but I also got slipped with over 50 pips and instead of nice profit I got a nice loss... As mentioned perfect trading doesn't exist in real life and my results are a lot different than the backtests, but we keep going on. Sooner or later we should get some winners and take back what was lost. It seems it was a good idea to start with a small balance and test it in a live environment, before adding big funds.

              Please don't blame Tickmill. The strategy was very poor.

                also trading gold through NFP was a bad mistake. Liquidity , spreads and execution all suffer doing that whipsaw.

                  The strategy I use made almost 100% before the losing months. It's the same as on ICMarkets except Tickmill has far worse results. You can compare the results, that's why I have them. Tickmill has worse spread and liquidity. Even the price feed is different because the same EA opens different trades on it. So I don't recommend Tickmill as seen from real trading.

                  HedgeBitcoin trading news events sometimes make a loss, but most of the time breakouts happen during them and I end with a profit. This is not the problem, we always risk the same and if we get slipped or spread is too wide we can't help it. This is how it is with real trading. I can avoid trading news events, but then I would miss on profits too. We need volatility for this system, preferably that it moves in only one direction for a while Ranging markets or zig-zag movement ends in a loss for the system.
