Thanks a lot for your contribution again.
One question: Are you even using my Algos or do you still get different results than what I post?
What I usually do is, comparing your algos against mine and take the one, which suits me better.
Here are my algos for Jul2, where I think they could be more favourable in one way or another.

@O-jay8, I am running those of your algos that have the same results as you do.
Right now I am live with your DOW, US500, NQ, NG, HS and BUND.
I often run all versions I think are good, even though it is the same instrument. That means that I am running wp01’s HS also for example.

Thanks for your algo’s.
I usually do the same as you. I check mine with yours and others posted here and take the best one.
Currently running ASX, Bund, AG, AU. I locked in some profits yesterday with the DAX4H and closed the HSCHIN and HS to protect my results of this month. It looks like i missed a lot yesterday in the shortsqueeze but
i’m happy with the results.
I also tried what David is writing about running several versions of the same instrument. I noticed that in the beginning when positions were posted mine sometimes didn’t open or the other way around that mine opened and others did not have a position. The intention is to stop the other when the first opened, but more than once they opened both :-). But if everything opens together in a few days the pressure on your account can
be hard when the market runs against you.07/13/2017 at 9:22 AM #40516
Although Cotton shows a long on the map, i do not get a positive result for Jul2.
Attached my version of the Cotton short.
The DD is higher than O-jay8’s version. That is probably caused by the difference in minimum amount of contracts between the UK and Europe.
Overhere it is a minimum of 2,5 contracts. I guess the DFB version is 1. Maybe O-jay8 can confirm that.

Thanks for the confirmations. Personally I am reluctant to run couple versions simultaniously as it would kill my nerves if they all go in the wrong direction. I know you could still cancel one algo immediately if several opend but I dont mind missing one or two trades once in a while.
I prefer a lower dd sometimes more than lower losses in regard of my mental state then. Respectively I create my algos to achieve that, where you guys probably have other priorities. Last week was a time as well, where I had a quite big DD compared to my account size, but fortunately I kept my nerves and this week looks very promising.
Cotton and Soybean are attached.
I also couldnt make a nice looking version for Cotton Long so I will trade the short version.
Minimum contract for Cotton is 1 for UK. Soybean i.e. 15 I think its 20 in your case.07/13/2017 at 10:05 AM #40524
I am still indecisive whether I want to trade Soybeans as the contract size is still a bit too high for my preferences. I skipped the last to periods.
Same applies with Coffee as the minimum size is 1 and the DD to high for me, so I left it out and just let it run in Demo.
