#1 goal in forex trading is not to lose money but profit is 2nd
These two videos clearly explain the latest overnight trading session test (Jan 10) for this automated trading strategy with Dukascopy JForex. For 12 hrs it ran, it made over $15 during that time frame vs the usual multiple days of losing money.
I have changed a few checks in the trading logic as explained in the video. The number one goal was to eliminate potential bad trades (unprofitable) which may have been accomplished with the latest fix. It is that simple but I am surprised no one never thinks of it nor is there a popular indicator that does this. It seems to work but there is lots more testing to confirm this theory.
The other big fix was to allow JForex to run the Java virtual machine higher heap size. The link to the detailed fix is below. As it stands the current strategy consumes up to 1.5 GB of RAM when running but is within the allowed 3.6 GB heap. It even allows the strategy to run through the night instead of crashing as my previous experience.
One last thing in the deep analysis video is to find if the position life cycle gets more profit before it closes it on the exit. Some examples were here so that needs to be improved. These could probably eek out another 25% profit for each successful position. Another note is to improve the average true range indicator to minimize each losing position while cut the loser much faster to preserve higher daily profit.
ALl in all this is a great start to hopefully more successful trading test sessions as I improve this strategy.
