a winner from both bots

MM2 gained 525 on a short trade of 6E 09-15
MM3 gained 812.50 on a short by entering and exiting earlier than MM2.

I will try to keep my server running for the rest of the month and continue these SIM trades but I may not be able to post regularly.

thanks to @kevinkdog for his "Taking a Trading System Live" journal. I read it some time ago and used it to test these strategies.

Checked it about 9:00 after the All Star Game and set a limit to Sell at the Ask attempting to get $100. Big reversal.

Forgive my poor choice of words


When I said, "Big reversal"....I was speaking relative to the $100 of profit I had over the last 4 hours.

A tale of Two Systems

I have some different results and unexpected results for running the two similar systems in real time next simultaneously.



MM2 has two trades (237.5) and 225.

Even in Sim, I missed a trade in MM3 because the strategy was not "ENABLED." Following the rules of the trade should have give 512.5.

In the chart above, MM3 seemed to chase the trades resulting in five small losses totaling (275). I need to re-look at the code as I did have a trailing stop but only after 12 bars. I guess that is why I am testing.

MM2 for July


MM3 for July

Includes the last trade this morning.
4765

A poorly placed stop and a break even

MM2 made tow trades and managed + 1 pip and minus 1 pip to break even.


MM3 made the first trade but over stayed and lost ($475).

Tough Day with equipment and Both Systems

My server shutdown with open shorts in both systems. (I am away and use ”TeamViewer” to see and control Ninja while away). When it was restarted locally, I left both positions in place and let the bots control. ( The program should have exercised my stops but I need to investigate more thoroughly).
All total MM2 lost 2237 and MM3 lost 1225.
This morning, both bots were disabled. (Don’t know why) so I missed a couple of small recovery trades.

At the end of a tough week..

...both BOTS ended with a nice little trade for up $312.

July Total for MM2 (1125)
July Total for MM3 881.

What strikes me as interesting is MM3's performance on the long side. The Euro is in a down trend yet the system is ahead in long trades and is losing on short trades. I built it to try and capture reversions of excess independent of trend but it seems to harvest best counter to the dominant trend.



That is not just the recent losses. Note the difference in profitable trades for long and short.
Comments?

Can you explain how you measure "excess"?
