Well, last week was pretty tiring. Had to travel to beautiful Beijing on a business trip. Weather was cold but manageable. This was my first trip to Beijing, and I am just amaze by the sheer number of Chinese people per sq foot… :)

Apart for my business work, I manage to squeeze some time to walk about Beijing, take the subway, visit Tienanmen Square and of course taking a quick visit to the Olympic Bird Nest.

Amazing huh….

Ok… this blog is not a social blog, but hey a bit of social blogging should not hurt right… right… One photo of the Bird Nest does not exactly qualify this to be a social blog.

Anyway, during my trip to Beijing, I did not manage to get any forex activity done (directly that is), because internet control in China is pretty tight. Even facebook and twitter was ban in China. I did not know why until I google it and found these sites.

Here are some interesting read:

This is not something new, but laymen like me are so caught up with my own personal escapade that we turn out of be as ignorant as hell to what is happening in our big world. Read the rest of this entry »

Silly Scalping Shocker

I recently started a project… Project Silly Scalping.

This project started when I was nostalgically retesting both FAPTurb0 and DragonPips, but with a different twist.

Instead of following their recommendation, I only focus their scalping strategy on only one currency pair, which was EURCHF. Why only one currency pair?

Well firstly it was because the backtesting result for these scalping EA does well with EURCHF… Don’t know if it’s the pair characteristic or the EA, but somehow that particular currency pair does well for all scalpers…

Secondly, it was easier to manage. Previously I followed their manual, and open up a lot of charts and MT4 just to accommodate the results. It was a killer… I kinda killed myself trying to manage and at times tweak the settings here and there… if I did it for one I had to do it for the rest in order to see consistency.

It was kind of stupid… but hey… it’s meant to be a lesson to me. And a lesson I have learned. So two simple reason, even if I do backtest and try to optimize the settings. I won’t go crazy…

Anyway… coming back to my story…

Simply Shocking

shocker01I had previously did some testing on this EA, but never got around to write something about it…

Well I guess today would be a good day to do just that. Forex Shocker has already been around for sometime. Some people say it is a good EA some people say it is not.

Looking at it’s website it is not a shocker (pun intended) that it is a scalping EA…

Here we go again… another scalper. I thought to myself… Ok…. this could be fun. Why? Because if it does not work in the original mode… then I could probably reverse it…. :)

Either way now… I have options.

Anyway, let’s get back to the issue at hand. Let’s have a look at the backtesting results and see how well this EA will shock the forex world… Read the rest of this entry »
