Well… I owe this blog two months of update. So here it goes…

While my FXOpen account continue to hold my Alpari account seems to be doing a see saw on me. That was due to PipMiner. I gave Pipminer another chances to shine on my account and it did… but it also took a big swipe on my account once again.

And with a big swish-swish… I gave back what I took back in January.

On an ever high note… It seems that my monthly dividend is still making me some good return.

Now, let’s take a good detail look at what happened on all my accounts. (01 July 2010 – 31 Aug 2010)

2 Fast 2 Fool-ious

I am proud to say that I have achieve my second new years resolution… which was to build my own EA.

Ok… maybe not from the ground up, I kind of cheated a bit in my quest to achieve this goal. I took another EA, tweaked with it, add some rim, add some nitrous, change the engine to a V8 and add a coat of new paint. Voila!!! A beautiful masterpiece…. which I named it aQuila.

Initially I wanted to name it Megan Fox… but thought I might be sued if this beauty proved hotter than Megan Fox.

Anyway, I also added another ‘computer system’ to monitor this lean mean beautiful machine… This EA works in parallel with aQuila to ensure my account to get fu(ked.

I have been testing the main EA for about 2 months now and tweaking it here and there was not easy…

It all started with a busted account and myfxbook chart below shows my progress.. :)

My first attempt[Note: Deleted the chart below because it is cramping myfxbook, this screenshot will be suffice for my journal record purpose]

Monthly Update ~ May 2010

Ok… Finally got my rebate in to close my month of May 2010.

Well… I still got hit in my Alpari… still my rebate keeps rocking it up.

I guess by now I should say… one should ignore my GoMarket account for the time being. Well.. for reason that I have already clearly mention in my previous post.

So… if I were to only look at my Alpari and FXOpen account. Taking into account only rebate from these account…

It will be as such…

Alpari May 2010

FXOpen May 2010

I must say I was not happy with my Alpari account and corrective action has been taken. So.. .I can only say that every little rebate helps.

Oh…. and of the main contributor to my down side of Forex Bling… which I have taken out of my account. It seems that it does not ‘Bling’ for me any longer. Sigghh… NEXT….

As for my FXOpen account…. My Lovely Megan seems to be making strands. Lovely 10% gain this month. But… I try not to speak too soon. Things could happen. And I hope that all the backtesting results proved that this strategy will hold for as long as it can.

So for the month of May… I am somewhat please. My aim for June will be to see if there is any other strategy I can employ to help recoup or rebuild my ailing Alpari account

Monthly Update ~ April 2010

Well, it is about time I posted my monthly update for April 2010. I was waiting for my cashback return to finally have a good view of my months trading activity.

It seems that CashBackForex is paying out in the 1st week of every month instead of the last week of the month. Anyway… while on their site they did mention that the payout is not the real time reflection of ones daily trade.

Anyhow… here is my performances for April 2010

First the happy note.

I finally got out of the red on my FXOpen account… :)

While I am still struggling on my Alpari account, as long as my total is still on the upside. It’s all good. However, looking at how my March and April is in the red. I had to take some corrective action.

One of it was to start consolidating my account. This is one of the reason why I took down my live account page. I wanted to display myfxbook account to reflect the changes that I have made.

And I have made some changes. So hopefully the page will be up soon.

As for my GoMarket account. I am still struggling trying to get my equity back on the road. It’s going to be long and hard. So while I am not too happy with April, I am not too sad about it either. This is going to be one long journey. Like my Alpari account.

But hopefully… not too long a journey… :)

Even with my month of April taking a hit. My return is not all that bad because of my rebate. So that rebate kind of save my a$$.  And I am not kidding with regards to the rebate that I am getting.

I am currently drafting a report on this rebate strategy because I believe it is a strategy worth looking deeper into.

I will probably publish my report soon. Still doing some proof reading and checking my spelling… :)

So stay tuned…

The Royal Affair

While I was cleaning and organizing my accounts… I finally got the time to really take a look at where I left off with Prime vs Kain and my Royal Rumble affair. It’s a bit difficult to see it on my previous live account since I dump all of the EA into one single account.

Nevertheless… the one very important tool which I will start and continue to use it very frequently is my Trade Analyzer by Easy-EA.

Furthermore, my royal rumble does not seem to be rumbling well… Argh… either these EA are pieces of $hit… or it is having one of those days… or the broker is just plain manure…

Screenshot from Royal Rumble

Ugly huh… Anyway, that is not what I wanted to analyze here.

On my first post on Prime vs Kain… I mention that Prime was firing up a few more shots than Kain. By the way… EAKain that I was using was their demo version, which was a copy of MegaDroid in which I renamed it ScalperPro. So after two months… let’s see how both of these two EA fair… Read the rest of this entry »

Secret Project Reveal ~ Part 1

Filed Under (Journal) by Casey on 01-04-2010

Tags: , , ,

It’s time I come clean with my secret projects 1 and 2. These secret projects were carried out at the end of the year and I have been mooting these projects because I had great expectation with these project because it was something new to me.

It is not entirely an EA project but rather it is a manage account using EA by the developer.

At the end of last year, I was convince that the best forex ea can not be found. If someone has it… they ain’t going to share it. And that was the reason why I had to try this out… I needed to know. And as they say, if you want to know, you got to get your hands dirty.

And so I did and by chance I manage to hook up with two guys to execute the project.

With manage account, it is a different game all together. Hmm… well it is not even a game. The reason is that my account is at their EA’s mercy. I totally have no control over it. Therefore, I can not be involve in it. Zip involvement. Zero touching. Zilch playing.

Royal Rumble

Initially I wanted to entitle this post as “My Karmic Affair Part 4285” but thought seeing how things have changed over the past weeks I decided to rename the title of this post as “Royal Rumble”

Before I continue with my story… Take a look at this myfxbook chart.

Once upon a time in December 2009, I started to notice FAPTurbo again on my favorite lead site 4xproject.com. The gains seems to be mighty interesting like to rose blossoming in the sun. Obviously I had assume that Zeno has been running this EA for since the rave days of FAPTurbo. So I thought it would be interesting again to rekindle my karmic bond with FAPTurbo.

So once again, the story continues with my fapping affair…. Read the rest of this entry »

Lovely Megan

If ever I were to use my analogy on the art of kungfu accurately then I would say this would be the best example that clearly showed what my gambler friend was saying…

Learn, observe and kick the bag… if it failed then I should relearn, observe and kick the bag again with a different style…

I have taken Cyborg EA tested it live, got slapped in the face, took BestSniperForex EA tested it live, got kicked in the nuts, relearned everything about martingale, mutate it a bit and applied it differently from a different perspective and this is what I got… A mutated Cyborg version which I have renamed it Lovely Megan.

Martingale Mania VI ~ Capital Outlay

Filed Under (EA System, Journal) by Casey on 26-08-2009

While I continued my back testing on a few more currency pair, I was planning my next course of action to this Martingale strategy. Since I believe I got the currency pair covered… ok… more or less got the currency pair covered, I also needed to address the main issue to continue with this strategy forward.

Capital outlay with the big C

Looking back at the nature of the risk I am willing to take with this strategy… for each currency pair, I need to have at least $10k… risking around 3,500 every time… would equal to 35% of my capital. This would of course be reduced every time I successfully accumulate my profits and grow my capital and continuous maintained my lot size to be at 0.01.

Thus… this is where I am stuck!

I do not have $10k with me at the moment. So what am I going to do? $hit!

However having said that… there is always a way around it. If I were to change $10k into 10k cent… it would make sense to trade 10k sense… going on a 0.01.
