Well, let me take the time to write up about this wonderful EA… I googled this and could not find it anywhere but in a forum. Apparently it was made by a guy (don’t know who) and he shared it with the forum community. After many discussion it somehow or rather evolve itself. Many EA seems to be using and improving this EA.

I am not in the technical know how to fully understand the potential of this EA and why is it so talked about. Forex Maestro seems to be using FireBird EA as it’s basis. The author has somehow manage to improve on it and resell it for a cool $197 a pop.

*I would make a lot of money if I knew programing*

Anyway… the point I want to share is this. After reading, browsing and skipping thread after thread in the forum and trying to understand what this EA is all about, I stumble upon this very interesting post. It was a post by a user ‘SamuraiPower’ in ForexFactory.com forum here (Post #2090). So what I did was I used Don’s template to identify the trend and then ‘Drive’ the EA as per what SamuraiPower suggested. Read the rest of this entry »

Giving Up Don

I have been seriously thinking about stopping Don’s MTF EA. It has not been yielding me very good results. It is a very complex system and it seems very difficult to understand or tweak. Don suggest that you don’t tweak it as the default settings has help yielded huge pips…

His result has been great but I can’t seem to emulate his results. I digged and digged right into this forum, and found out that HIS PERFORMANCES IS THE TOTAL TRADES HE TAKES IN PARALLEL OTHER THAN MTF EA!!!

Now I can’t really find where did he ever state this but this is what a long time Don EA users who has a blog on it says on his post here . This is a very clear misrepresentation on his website.

If you go to his forum here , you will come to understand that most of us (like me) thought that we were not doing it right. And so, we continue with our faith in this EA trying to understand where we did wrong. Correct it and hope to make the kind of pips that Don is making.

While some forum member thinks Don is not telling us the whole truth, the other half are great supporter of Don’s work.

Looking at how my IBFX account is doing, after what… 1 year of live testing and no profits to show for it, I think this is the best time to call it QUITS on Don’s EA… Screw it… It’s not whether I did it right or wrong.. This EA is too complex… to understand in the first place… I was taken by the fact that this EA was profitable until I really read James blog.

But at the same time, I may have found another use for Don’s EA… It has something to do with firebird EA. Did some research and will share with you on the next posts….

UPDATE: I have uploaded the newest version of Don’s EA on my download page… Happy trading this EA.

VPS Revisits…

Filed Under (Journal) by Casey on 20-03-2009

On my previous post ‘3 Quiet Days ‘ I mentioned that I was pretty serious about forex business and should consider VPS (Virtual Private Server) to ensure that I do not miss any potential profitable trades especially with FAPTurbo…

I have been away on a holiday these past few days, and was very fortunate that my desktop and internet connection did not screw on me and my EA was trading very well for me. Raking profits while I am on holiday… ahh… such is life.

But before I went on holiday, I did a lot of research on VPS had sometime for somemore personal thoughts about this. Why?

Well, that is because of the monthly fee that I am going to incur. The best VPS in terms of service and $$$ is VPSLAND.COM not only recommended by http://ckowyong.com/blog/ but also by a lot of other forex community of having a good service and price factor. Now $18 bucks per month should be peanuts compared to a big account. But for an account like mine of total $3000, trading at mostly 0.1 mini lots… I am not sure…

Further more my IBFX account which is running Don Steintz seems to not been running well and some digging further into this EA, many revealing information has surface with regards to Don Steintz’s EA…

Anyway… while FAPTurbo has been very profitable on my Alpari account, my other account seems to be in the reds… So does this justify me commiting another $18 bucks per month?

So far I am up $300 on my alpari account this month… but in total together with all my other broker, I am only up $180. Thus, at the time of writing I am committing 10% of my profits just to ensure that I will be getting what…. erm… maybe 5 bucks per day… or less.

Don’t know… So until I can make some sense out of all this in terms of dollars and cents and reorganize myself again especially with Don Steitz’s EA, I will put my VPS search on my KIV tray…

Serious as I maybe in making money, I guess I have to be practically no??

Another interesting site

I have been on a holiday for the past few days, it’s school holidays here now and took the time to spend time with my family.

Forex EA is great no? While I was away, my robot was working for me… :) I have a lot of things I wanted to write and share today, so I guess I will get started.

I don’t know if it was a coincidences or not but I stumble upon this site before I left for my holiday and bookmarked it to share with everyone and Jim has commented about this site on my previous post

Now this was not the first time I came across this nick name DUYDUY… He (I believe) was pretty much active in HYIP forum and I too was active (once upon a time) unless someone also have the same nick duyduy, then this would not be the same person I came across during my HYIP days.

But if he is then I guess he like me have stumble upon forex EA. Automatically make money for us while we site and sip our coffee. Minus the risk of someone scamming our money… :)

I guess he is way ahead of me in terms of testing EA. So if you want to check out other EA that have been tried and tested, then just pop by his site http://duyduyfx.blogspot.com . Will put him on my blogroll since not only we have cross path before but is also on the search for the best forex EA…

I am Very Bothered…

One thing that really bothers me… With the new MT4 platform, they could easily post their forward testing proof by allowing others to download the brokers platform, installed it and log in to the account as an investor to withness the actual live proof…

But no… these forex system authors just post a half bake statement, never identifying who the broker is or whether the picture is fabricated. I mean hey we are in the 21st century and anything can be photoshoped edited and reproduced. Proving a point with how EA could easily be cracked, repackaged and resell it in a different name why not pictures no??

I think they are aiming for newbies in forex. And I believe with the current ecomony situation there will be a lot of hungry lambs around trying to make an extra buck. What a way to make a living… I mean those forex EA author.

No season forex EA users will fall for this marketing trick. They maybe curious, and also ruthless in someway, but hey… open internet freedom.

Forex Fantasy Launched

Again, I am being blasted by the launched of this new Forex EA. (http://theforexfantasy.com )

One thing I correct in my prediction is that I got the price correct. It is selling for $197.  Ok… one things for sure, there is no similarity between both these sites, but same old marketing… starts at 997, 597, 397, than 197… I just don’t understand the marketing logic of all these 97 figure. Need to read more about this marketing gimmick…

Whatever it is, this marketing gimmick is not uncommon. You need to build a sense of importances they say, a sense of high value that the product is offering. Hey.. if I’m going to sell a product, I will probably use this marketing tactic.

It seems to prove it’s use.

EA Shark Build 4.0 Ultimate

I finally uploaded this EA on my download page. I also uploaded my modified version of EA Shark. Ok… not modified but rather I was trying to crack this EA.

Actually this was a really good experiences for me. You see, I do not know much about coding MQL. This was a great way for me to get my hands dirty and see what I could do with it. At least now I know what some functions does.

Anyway coming back to this crack version. As I mention before EA Shark Build 4.0 has one of the first I have encountered uncrackable EA. And it’s true. The dll files hides some of the functions, INCLUDING CHECKING FOR A VALID LICENSE TO THE EA.

It took me awhile but I manage to work it around.

There was another DLL funtion which I though that could be important to the whole new Build it was the Trade dll files while I was able to crack it into two an ex4 and mqh file….

I am still learning what all this means, but for a newbie MQL programmer I absolutely know how this works.

It will take time to learn but to learn it will be one of my objectives… :)

Well, see if anyone can make heads and tails out of this new build and hopefully share any interesting finds…

Pipcop.com

I stumble upon this site, Pipcop.com .

It is a great forum, and it does show some interesting forward testing results. This site confirms what I previously mentioned ‘Not All Broker Are Created Equal

It also gives you an indication on which EA would perform best on which broker, and may probably give you some amount of indication as to which EA you can try on live.

Now what really caught my eye again was Forex Maestro… It seems to confirm that Forex Maestro is actually using FireBird EA. It seems profitable with Alpari US and would have some problem with 5 digit broker account.

And it also seems that you can download Forex Maestro for free there too…

Anyway, check it out… Good resources. It’s so good that I am putting it on my blog roll… :)

Forex Fantasy

Recently my mailbox have been blasted by a new forex EA that will be launched soon. Forex Fantasy (http://www.theforexfantasy.com)

The pre-launch site looks very familiar…. I was not able to put my fingers into it until yesterday when it just hit me!!

I realize that I have seen this pre-launch site before… It was Forex Maestro!!!

So, I thought to myself, what is it that was so familiar? First thing that came to mind was obviously the video. It has some similar traits. Nice music, same background visual effect… I am pretty sure that their opt in page were placed in the same position. While I can’t really verify it because the prelauch page of Forex Maestro has disappeared… I somehow had that same feeling…

3 Quiet Days…

Yes, it has been three days and not many trades on done on FAPTurbo…

2 days were due to connection problem, and yestesday or this morning was due to high spread. One thing good about FAPTurbo is that, if the spread/volatility is too high, no trades would be executed even if the signal was present.

Good huh… while it is very disappointing to not make money for the past few days, I don’t think that I will lose any sleep over this. I trading peanut lots anyway….

The past few days got me going to do more search about VPS…. Did a lot of search and read a lot of blogs. One blog that came up about VPS was this… http://ckowyong.com . I started reading his guide, ‘VPS Guide to MT4 ‘ I must say it was pretty interesting.

It got me interested and to seriously thing about VPS. His site is cool and just like me, he too is searching for the best workable and profitable EA around. Because of that, I have added him into my blog roll.

Anyhoo…. I’m still seriously thinking about it. Putting my live account on VPS and all demo account on my normal internet connection.

Don Steinitz once wrote to all this custormers, ‘If you are seriously thinking about making money from forex, then you must consider the use of VPS (Virtual Private Server)’… Or probably something to that effect.

Now I dismissed that because I though hey… he is trying to upsell another product. But after my last few days of internet blunder… I believe what he meant by that.

Yes, I am serious in wanting to make money with FAPTurbo and whatever interesting EA that would seem profitable so I guess I have to seriously think about VPS.
