thanks a lot
While you do the optimization or even when it is finished, in the strategy tester window where you do the normal back testing there will be two new tabs: Optimization results and optimization graph.
In Optimization results it will give you line for line every pass that has been made that had a positive result with info like profit factor, no of trades, drawdown ect as well as the settings it used to get the results for that particular pass.
The optimization grapgh will have green blocks all over the show with all the profitable passes and the more profit a pass had the darker green it will be.
If you double click on a pass that looks favorable then those settings will be passed on to your expert properties and you can run a backtest or save them as a *.set file
You can also copy it to somewhere else if you wish

The longer the period that you choose for optimization and the more parameters you choose for optimization the longer it takes to do

I tried to do an optimization for FAP Autopilot a while ago selecting basically everything that looked like it could make a difference and it was running for three days and then I had a power failure (that was over a period of 8 months and the optimization was bout 90% finished - never thought to copy the results I had at that point somewhere

The optimization is finished

I upload an exel file with everything that showed a profit of more than $1000

The following were not optimized some for obvious reasons:

Risk_percent=0
minLots=0.1
maxLots=8
StopLoss=600
hidden_sl=300
hidden_tp=600
UseFastTrail=1
Slippage=3
OrderRetries=5
SleepBetweenTrades=1000
MagicNumber=1803
iStartTradingHour=8
iEndTradingHour=21

Some setting I feel that we might play around with to get possible better results is take profit (maybe increase it), SleepBetweenTrades (maybe decrease it), Risk_percent, Trailing stop (turn it off perhaps), stoploss.

The testing was done with a starting balance of $500

Following are the trades that I have managed to get on this EA:
The GBPCHF was from fapturbo Scalper

I just changed the take profit to 200 and sleep betweenbetween trades to 20 and on backtest got much better results

Turning trailing stop off kills the account

Morning and thanks for the opportunity (thesecret) and the hard work optimizing it (Pavarotti). Will be very interesting to follow the results from this. The draw down doesn't seem to be bad at all with the newer settings and it would be cool to have a daytime scalper as well :-D
Cheers guys!

I am redoing the optimization - on forward testing the trailing stop seems to close so I have changed the optimization to start at 5, step at 5 and stop at 100.

It's done on 5 min charts
Trying to upload the exel sheet

Thanks man! I get good results from 2008.10.23-2008.12.23, but from 2008.06.23-2008.12.23 it blows account. From-to which date did u run optimization?
