hi all, yesterday i joined fj. i have been trawling for an ea. that works for about 4/5 years now and have had no luck. When i saw this was an ea. with a live trader,a profesional trader who works 15 hours a day, i gave it a go. i have had much experience loading ea's onto platforms but the first thing that struck me about this was how difficult it was to get one's head around. instead of downloading the ea. and explaining the process from there it started at the opposite end. even when i got to the download bit the files were inside files which needed to be taken out and put into the correct parts of the metatrader files. when i had set it up and the smiling face of the ea showed it was operating, i had the feeling it wasn't. iwaited about 6/7 hours loging in and out trying to work out what was wrong. if you were a newbe to ea's you would be completely bamboozled. anyway i finally found i had put one of the files into the indicators file instead of the 'include'file, after i had to retrieve it from inside a file. I finally had confirmation it was live and it shortly after placed trades. 5 all up at once. 2 sell of aususd and 3 sell of eurusd. why it wanted 3 sell is beyond me. i was watching at the time and was wondering why it went short when the trend was long, after all it says in the speil that the trader is a junkie for trading and just loves it so much he works 15 hours a day, so i let it go on thinking that a hedge trade would be placed by this 'junkie' because he claims he really knows how to trade. shortly after i placed an opposite trade to his and got enough to take out one of his trades and make a profit with mine. things settled down then i went to bed, thinking this guy knows what he is doing , he is a proffessional after all.bad move. turns out he showed he didnt know what he was doing and even though if he was watching, he had the chance to get out of the eurusd trades in profit he must have gone to sleep also. i'm in australia.when i looked this morning the situation had worsened and i was stopped out at the % stop i had placed. i stopped the sub. and removed the ea from my platform. I seem to find everyone who says one thing and does another. buyer beware.
