The Bull is Down in the Pits!

Demo Update

If you haven’t notice yet… My PITBULL demo is in the dumps…

Yes… that is what people would say… Martingale is dangerous. And quite rightly so… if one does not use it carefully.

There are two things I have to say there. One… and the most important point here is that I over trade. I traded 0.1 lot on a $2k account with a leverage of only 1:100. That is how I could yield a high of $3.5kĀ  close to 50% returnĀ  over 2 months period.

Secondly, it seems that there is a bug in the codes. The EA seems to only go long rather than both ways.

I spoke to the developer and he says that something is not right because the EA should trade both ways. Looking at his myfxbook statement, he verifies it. So it’s either he forwarded the wrong EA to me which I doubt it…

Or… I might have done something to the EA. I mean… erm… (Putting myself in the corner here)

Ok… these needs to be looked at. Because I have actually put Pitbull in my lovely megan account. And it seems to exhibit the same traits.

However… in my Megan account, I am trading 0.001 (nano) lots on a 1:500 leverage and only trading 3 currency pair as per my backtesting results. While I do not think it will effect much… I still need to get to the bottom of this and restart the demo again…
