Sometimes short works very well:
You never know until you try, but as Patrick says, there are plenty of other indices and commodities.

@wp01: I gave jul1 a go. Nearly exact same result as the best one found here. I understood why ThirdMa is 4, but couldn’t figure out why LongMa=87 since I got the best result on about 75-85, so I picked 80. Anyway, I think I got the hang of it 😉
On another matter. Was thinking of going live with 5k EU for jul2. I realise this might abit short to start with so I was thinking of just starting with max 5 systems running in the beginning, the lowest/safest ones for jul2 when they’re out. Any advice? Is it to high risk?

It is not recommended to run max. 5 systems with only 5K capital. All systems are actualy created for an initial capital of 10K or an equivalent in foreign currency.
If all systems run at the same time and they run against you, it is possible that you blow-up your account when you have a couple of bad days in a row. I can assure
you that the stress level will be high and if you are not used to it, it gives you a couple of sleepless nights. It is not worth it. Unless you earn your money in an easy way
or you have enough to spend i recommend you to be careful with your capital.
In the report you can find in the tab with the results in the right column what the position did negative before it closed leter on. Sometimes you see there minus 800 to 1.200 euro. Multiply
that by 5 in the worst case scenario and your account is gone.
Pfeiler wrote on page 60 something about how to handle or deal with the maximum capitalization.

You also need to be aware of that systems continue to run in the new period. If you deside to run 3 systems in for example June2 and they open all 3 of them a position in the end of the month,
they keep running in the next period. This means that when you activate for July1 again 3 systems but now opening
a position in the beginning of the month you have 6 algo’s running and that gives extra pressure on your account.
We now have that for example. EuroStoxx Jun2 and Jul1, FTSE Jun2 and Jul1, India Jun2 and Jul1, Sweden Jun2 and Jul1 are all running at the same time.07/05/2017 at 12:09 PM #39868
wp01: Yes I know 🙂 I’m running 5 systems for jun2 and 10 for jul1 on my demo account, just to see if it can handle it. Was 4k EU when started. But as long as it’s going well it can, don’t have a situation yet with alot of DD.07/05/2017 at 12:40 PM #3987207/05/2017 at 12:59 PM #3987607/05/2017 at 7:19 PM #3991507/06/2017 at 8:29 AM #39926
No rules i know of.
Attached Gold. Looks nice without the tick-by-tick. If you check that the BT changes to 2010 and doesn’t look so nice anymore.
We are probably going to see that will all other optimizations. Don’t know what to think of it. I think the impact on
the BT is little without tick-by-tick when you have just one trade per year in that period. If you have more than one trade in that specific
period it could give different results when you uncheck the tick-by-tick mode. I’m wondering what others think of it.07/06/2017 at 10:45 AM #3993907/06/2017 at 10:50 AM #3994407/06/2017 at 3:52 PM #39958
