I'm often contacted by EA and system vendors to promote their products which is perfectly fine and I'm more than happy to do. As part of my normal filtering routine though I always insist on taking a look at what they're offering and testing it out for myself.
I don't like to recommend anything that I haven't personally tested and had at least some success with.
You may have seen my recent article about Keltner Pro which I'm still running although it has to be said that 2015 has not been a great year for Keltner Pro. My account is still showing a 376% profit which is great, so I'm not complaining. I've also withdrawn my initial deposit plus 100% so everything else is just gravy and I'm willing to let it run it's course.
A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by an EA vendor about his latest offering so I checked it out. The guy had a great sales page and it looked very professional so I got in touch to see about getting a review copy. (more…)
Recently I started using an indicator that had been written by another programmer and initially it was doing a pretty good job. However,eventually I started getting annoyed with one particular implementation...
...or rather lack of implementation.
The indicator itself was a pretty simple affair and in essence all it did was to draw a series of lines starting from a predefined point. I'd drop the indicator on the chart, drag the zero line and the rest of the lines would be redrawn automatically, relative to it's position.
The problem came when I wanted to change the orientation of the lines and make the zero line the top rather than the bottom. The way the original programmer had coded it meant that the user would have to go into the settings, scroll down the list, identify the correct setting and change it from true to false.
Now instead of drawing the lines from zero upwards, it would draw them from zero downwards.
What a long winded way to accomplish a simple task!
So I decided it would be much simpler - and cooler - to have a button on the chart that would toggle the settings state from true to false. That way I wouldn't have to mess around with settings and instead could change the value by the click of a button.
Sounds pretty sweet right?
Well here's how you can do it too... (more…)
If you're like most people then you're probably on the hunt for the perfect expert advisor. You've most likely tried a few of the free ones available on the web and found them lacking. You may have even put your hand in your pocket and parted with some hard-earned cash, but the results were always miserable.
Some showed great promise initially but eventually they would fail. Maybe the market conditions changed or maybe they weren't coded well enough and couldn't handle the unpredictable nature of the Forex market. Whatever the reason for their failures, I could never really find a consistently profitable expert advisor...
...until now! (more…)
