Has anyone successfully generated Non Forex based EA’s?
After having a sizable account eliminated in three minutes when the Swiss National Bank removed the currency peg in January I have turned my thoughts to EA’s based on stocks and indices. So far I have not read of anyone who has been successful in this area in this forum. One member posed the question recently but did not receive any comments and issued a statement awhile later stating that they assumed that the answer was zero.
I will ask again. Has anyone been successful using Strategy Quant in developing successful EA’s based on anything other than Forex. If so, could you please describe your experiences.
I’ve found what I think is a very good strategy for gold but have only just put it on a live account.
Thanks for the response. You are the only one. I received a message from Marc Fric saying that the vast majority of members of the forum are Forex oriented. He suggested that I open a new thread for non Forex interested members. If there is an interest please respond and maybe we can open some dialogue.
I’m definitely interested, would love to create some index EAs as well.
I’m very interested in index, metals and energy based strategies. Not tried generating any yet though.
Non Forex Thread Sounds good
I know a CTA (based in Spain) and they are actively using SQ for major world equity/bond index futures
Can you share more information about the CTA in Spain regarding how they use the tools
I’m also interested I trade on IC Markets and I can trade CFDs like US30, WTI and BRENT oil. Would be great we can share hints about it. 🙂
Anyone know what the data manager settings should be for a IG Markets MetaTrader?
what symbol (market) do you refer to?

Most Brokers offer Bitcoin
I found historical data about bitcoin and a tool to import this data in metatrader
I will try next bitcoin.

The symbol in IG Market is “UKOIL”. But it is the same as Brent Crude Oil.
Since this is a CFD I guess the point value etc isn’t the same as the normal symbol. Also it isn’t exactly the same as the oil that is being traded on CME or ICE.
I have attached a screen shoot from IG Markets together with the spec.
As you can see on the screen shoot the price, when I write this, was 64.3740. This might look strange since Brent Crude Oil normally only have 2 decimals…
I did a test trade to see what one (1) lot would do in price: I bought at 64.5290 and sold at 64.3820. The loss on that trade was -127.08
(In my account it is traded in EURO)
I hope this will make my original question a little clearer 🙂
in this case I suggest to use point value = 1000, pip size = 0.01 and minimum step = 0.0001
to all: for futures fans, CME now introduces Bitcoin futures 🙂 http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/bitcoin-futures.html
