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)

June has been kind to me. Probably because I am happy that my Alpari account is catching up. Without further ado… I present to you my update as of June 2010

It ain’t impressive but a positive month end closing is a step forward.

I thought this time round I will let the result speaks for itself… using my Trade Analyzer, I thought it would be nice to see how each EA that I have placed on my live account fair.

Failed Invasion

Before I close my first quarter for 2010, I thought I should pen this down. I have been putting this off for quite sometime. It all started a long time ago that I did an experiment which I had name it EURO Blitzkrieg.

It was something like my Silly Scalping where I pit all the EA that traded EURCHF on one platform or one account. With Euro Blitzkrieg, I pitted all the EA that traded EURUSD.

From my previous invasion of EURUSD, it was a failed attempted.

And it took me about a few months to re conceptualize this idea. And so in the beginning of this year. I restarted my second wave to push through my battle with EURUSD.

I had attempted initially with PipMiner and ForexBrokerBuster but FBB was neither going here nor there and on top of that FBB was said to be a clone or rather a copy EA of another free EA. (Don’t really want to go in detail with regards to this anymore). I stopped FBB not because it had a drawdown, but it seems to not perform as expected.

The invasion began with a very strong results. But drawdowns from FBB made me stop it last month. And pitted ScalperPro and Primeval on my list.

Unfortunately, the next buster was PipMiner, the drawdown was heavier than FBB. It reminded me of EuroBlaster, where it takes 4 position and scalping profits but large stop loss. Same concept but different name.

And so… with that I only have two small minions trying to push EURUSD through…

Sighh….. Maybe I should give FBB another shot.

The sharp drawdown is mainly due to PipMiner… And nothing else. If experiences have proved to me what needs to be done, is to take out the EA that is just too risky. I believe PipMiner is one of them.

And so… goes my failed invasion….
