The portfolio I developed using StrategyQuant is working very well. I started it in a live account April 1, 2015 and it is up 14% and over 1000 pips. Drawdown is minimal at 11%, my goal is to have drawdown capped at 20%, but ideally below 15%. Although it’s too early to conclude success after only 2 months, the strategies’ drawdowns and smooth upward performance results are indicative of the back testing and forward testing results I had. So it’s looking real good overall.
After I made 10%, I doubled the lot size. This is a test live account (demo account was giving different trade results than the live account so I do not want to rely on a demo account’s results). I am using a $1,000 account with a .01 micro lot to start, and am now using a .02 micro lot, and will continue to increase as profits grow to compound the returns.Portfolio Details:1) EURNZD 4hr2) GBPJPY 5min3) AUDNZD 4hr4) AUDUSD 30min5) EURJPY 5min6) NZDUSD 4hr7) GBPUSD daily
The attached pic is of when I started this portfolio in a live test account April 1, 2015. So it has accurate readings related only to this portfolio and filters out previous results from other strategies. I also have the entire account tracked on MYfxbook (http://www.myfxbook.com/members/PrincipAnalysis/principle-analysis-sq-portfolio/1244436) but this documents the account since its inception which distorts the data related to this portfolio since I tested a grid trading strategy before and it was very wild so I stopped using it. You can see on the MYfxbook link that the performance became significantly smoothed out once I started using the current StrategyQuant portfolio April 1st though.
I just wanted to drop by and post my results and at least short term success in using StrategyQuant to develop my own EAs. So far so good. I will be back again later with an updated report.Attachments in this forum are visible only for registered users.
Timeframes vary based on the pair. I like timeframes that “make sense” for the pair traded. Here’s a link to the portfolio details. I posted it on the right side of the blog under the MyFxBook tracking: http://principleanalysis.blogspot.com/
