      So after a great start in the challenge the EA studio totally failed for me in the verification stage losing every single, last, trade. Maybe you just get what you pay for so I’m moving on and  looking at the FTMO Robot. I know it’s new, but can anybody report any success with it especially over the last mouth?

    • #183693

      Hey David,

      Please make it more transparent what you mean by ”EA Studio failed”. EA Studio is not an EA but a tool we use to create and automate EAs. Do you mean you generated EAs using EA Studio and you put them on a challenge?

      The robot performs smoothly and now when FTMO removes the 30-day period for the challenge it gets even easier to pass with it because we are not limited in time.

      Hallo,

      I have the following questions about the FTMO
      ROBOT.

      can I scale and for 20,000 then increase the lots to 0.6?

      can I probably transfer the robot to other prop companies?

      Thanks,

        Thomas,

        Yes, you can scale it up!

        What I know about using a common EA on various brokers is that the results will not be the same.  Some brokers might show greater stagnation, drawdown, and or overall profit than other brokers.  So beware of these possibilities!

      Hey traders,

      I have updated the FTMO Robot on our website. This is the latest version, Version 3.

      • How is this Robot different to the previous version?
      • It trades on the M1 Chart using the Envelopes
      • There is a Higher Time Frame filter (MACD on M15)
      • Option to add to the position
      • Spread & Account protections

      I have recorded a detailed video explaining How the Robot Works.

    • #186905

      Hey Jean,

      Glad to hear from you.

      The course will be updated with the EA in the very near future. I just recorded a few more videos showing how I pass the 200k challenge and it will take some time for my team to edit the videos.

      Hey Petko,

      I hope you are doing well.

      I purchased the FTMO Robot yesterday, I am trying to back-test the robot on metatrader5 on a 10k challenge. Looks like is not opening any trades on the back-testing, I am pretty sure the reasons are the wrong settings/inputs, i had to modify them since your video is showing the settings for a 200k challenge 🙂 can you please help me?

      Thanks for your amazing job, i like your videos and effort.

       

    • #187462

      Hey Vincenzo,

      I think it is the same issue. Please, lower the lot size and try again.

      Also, yesterday was the weekend and the FTMO server closed on Friday with a spread > 10 pips.

      In the EA there is a Spread FIlter Protection set to 3 pips, so make sure not to use the Current spread but 2 pips for example.

        Try using MT4 instead of MT5.  I am thinking MT4 does not have this issue.

      1) what setting do you recommend to pass FTMO 100k ?

      2) The EA doesn’t has any high new protección right? What do you recommend?

      3) I work with a profirm that doesn’t accept Martingale How I can setup the EA non martingale?

      4) how I do backtesting I tried I didn’t work

    • #187464

      Hey Jose,

      Glad to hear from you.

      1. I would use 3 lots so if the EA hits the SL it would be below 1%.

      2. What do you mean by ”high new”?

      3. The EA does not use martingale: it adds to the position if there is a new signal. However, if you want to avoid the adding just set the entry to 3 lots and max position to 3 lots, so it won’t add on the same directional signal.

      4. Abour the backtesting make sure to use a smaller lot and spread of 2-3 pips (not the weekend one)

      I May have found the issue, I did not have any data to back test.

      I still do not understand the setting very well and would like to understand more.

      Is it possible to see the Envelopes and other things on my TM4 as indicators?

        Hi Kevin,

        When doing the backtest on MT4 you have to set up the Strategy Tester correctly.  This video will walk you through the process.

         

        As for the FTMO settings, what questions do you have?

        The Envelopes can be added to the MT4 chart.  You can find the indicators in the list of indicators on MT4.

    • #187902

      Hello Ramis,

      The FTMO Robot will open trades when the price hits the Envelopes and there is confirmation from the MACD. The EA is not designed to trade frequently but to take strong reversal signals.

      If you do not see trades for a few days, check out the journal for any errors. Also, make sure you keep your laptop/PC connected to the internet all the time, and the MetaTrader connected to the FTMO Server.

      I like the word ”dead” for EA 🙂

      How can I resolve this?

      Thanks in advance.

    • #187906

      Hey Lee,

      Check my answer above.

      The general expectation is to have a very active EA because these are the type of EAS people buy from the market. Usually, such EAs use martingale to recover the losing trades but those are not suitable for Prop Firms.

      Are you using Netting or Hadging account? It is a problem in MetaTrader 5 if you are using a Hedging account. It won’t be able to add to the position.

      Hey Khoo,

      Yes, the lot size is the only thing you need to adjust.

      But with the new Version 4.0 I would suggest you trade straight with 0.3, not using the adding option.

      Hello Petko, can you consider adding a delay to this EA so it can help with being slightly different from other traders?

      I’m running this on a few different accounts with different settings but they all opened their positions at the same time.

      An option to delay the open order from 1 to 10 seconds in the inputs would be helpful in reducing the risk of being flagged by a prop firm for opening a position at the same time as too many other people and will also help make our trades unique.

        The following is from a demo account on trading.com using the MT5 Strategy Tester.  I can’t use the FTMO demo account right now because I have a 10K demo account with FTMO currently running using MT4.  The first chart shows the dates when trades were taken.  Notice that it does not take trades every day.  The last trade was taken on 8/16.  The second chart shows the profit so far this month.  The account started the month of August with $200,000.  Chart shows profit of $6771.06 so far for the month.

        I would expect the FTMO robot to take another trade within the next day or two.  Patience!
        I would suggest you do a similar backtest to make sure everything is working correctly.  The following are the settings I used:

        Thanks for answering me. But the question is, in which do you run the ea, mt4 or mt5 for FTMO account? Because in MT4 when you open the folder to put the EA it only gives the option to put the MT5 version, I don’t know if that will be a problem. Why does it have to do with the type of Hedge or Netting account, right?

        Well let’s see if someone can clarify it for me so that I can get it ready to launch operations.

        Thank you.

        If you are using MT4 then you need to use EURUSD M1 FTMO Filter M30.mq4.

        If you are using MT5 then you need to use EURUSD M1 FTMO Filter M30.mq5 (EURUSD M1 FTMO Filter M30).

      I was getting the same error in MT5 on demo account and strategy tester:

      Press F4 (to get to MetaEditor), go to Search – find in files:


      Find what: return ((ENUM_ORDER_TYPE_FILLING)OrderGetInteger(ORDER_TYPE_FILLING));
      Replace with: return (ORDER_FILLING_IOC);
      Press Replace in Files

      Now compile all AE that you needed to change and restart MT5.
      I am not sure what does this change do I am not developer. But it fixed my issues.

        Looks like you are trying to close a position that has already been closed.  Remove EA from chart.  Close MetaTrader and reload.  Add EA back to chart.   This should give you a fresh restart.

      Hi Everybody,

      So, since I started using the FTMO Robot V5, my MT5 freezes every time. I have tried everything: closed all, reinstalled everything, checked my internet, and now I even paid for a VPS to let them run. However, my MT5 still freezes. Interestingly, it’s not my MacBook; this thing still works. I already tested the same on MT4, and there’s no issue. I contacted the MQL5 support, but they can’t help me. Do you guys have experience with this or know how to solve this problem? I can’t close MT5 every 5 minutes, and it’s also really slow since I installed the robot.

      Thanks for Help! 😀

      Hello All

      I want to just double check, the MT4 and MT5 EA’s are exactly the same right? Even though I am running my FTMO screening test on MT5 I can use the best pair on MT4 with the MT4 EA?

      Also, how long do we run the FTMO test phase for ideally? I have seen a few different mentions, like a week, 2 weeks, before we take the best one and enable it on our live account.

      Lastly, what is the best approach, from experienced users that has passed their evaluations, do I use just the one best EA with set lot size, or do I use the top 2 or top 3 with split lot sizes?

      Thanks!

        Hi Nicholas,

        Answer to question 1)  The EA’s are the same.  They are coded differently as MT4 and MT5 have different languages.  So yes you can use MT5 for testing and then MT4 for live trading.  However, be aware of one thing:  If MT5 is on a different broker or different prop firm than MT4 then there could be some difference as each broker or prop firm will have somewhat different histortical data.

        Answer to question 2)  One week or two weeks is not sufficient backtest to see how the EA will perform over the long term as during such short periods of time the market could be trending without any significant retrace or drawdown.  During longer periods of time such as one month or longer then the market is more likely to have some small retraces and even a drawdown.  If you are going to run your EA for a month or longer than you want to know how it will perform during retraces or drawdown.  So it is recommended if you are going to run an EA for a month or longer that you at least backtest it for one month.

        Answer to question 3)  There is no right or wrong answer to this question.  I have used the best 1 to 3 EAs and have found that the 10 EAs they were selected from actually performed better than the few I selected.  Then again I have had the opposite occur.  The one nice thing about running all the EA’s is that they will compensate for each other.  What I mean by that is when one or two EAs are going through a drawdown the others most likely could be profiting, this helps to minimize drawdowns.  So, since it is difficult to decide to run 1 to 3 EAs or the whole lot, what I do when I want to have more than a 1% account risk I will then run all the EA’s to minimize drawdown.  If I just run 1 to 3 EAs then I keep my account risk to 1% because the drawdowns will most likely be greater.  So, running the whole lot with a 2% risk also helps to increase profit.  So running the whole lot helps to keep drawdown to a minimum while at the same time increases the chance of greater profit.

        Hope this helps!

        Alan,

      Hey Alan

      Thanks for your response.

      On question 2, I may not be clear in my question. So according to Petko, we must run the EA’s on a test account on FTMO before we use the best-performing ones to pass the account challenge. I would like to know if the 2 weeks we run the test enough. We then take the top 3 and add them to our live account, is this correct?

      I will keep in mind of course that if I run 3 or more, which makes sense to me, but then adjust to compensate for no more than 1% risk over all three. I would assume I adjust the lot size? So if I then take my top three EA’s over the two week test period, for a 10K account, then the lot size for 1 EA is 0.05 – I would then divide 0.05 by three and use that lot size on each EA. Am I correct in this Alan?

      I am planning on only running on FTMO live account s only.

      I do have all EA’s running on a different broker demo account just to have a continuous updated best performance on the EA’s.

      Still learning…relatively new to trading, been a heck of a journey this far though. As the saying goes, trading is simple, but definitely not easy.

      Thanks again.

      Hi Petko, thank you very much for your response. I’ve been using my MacBook for about a year, and I’ve been trading on the FTMO Broker account for approximately 2 months now. So far, it has been working without any issues. Could I have possibly made a mistake during the installation? The robots are running on my VPS, and 7 out of 8 have already opened trades, so I believe everything should be running correctly. I’ve also explained the issue to MQL5 support, and they believe it’s not on their end.

      Hey Nicholas,

      I don’t really depend on the time period as one or two weeks. Sometimes, there will be more or less trades opened.

      But two weeks is enough to check the recent top performers. Then you need to keep in the challenge only the top performers.

      Regarding the risk. The set files are for the testing account and if you trade the EAs individually.

      If you decide to put more than 1 EA on a challenge, you better lower the risk.

      I have had the FTMO robot on my MT5 for 2 weeks and it has still not made any trade:
      – The settings is on the M15
      – The algo trading is on
      – The only thing i have changed is the take profit (i have only changed it with 10 pips, so if the take profit on the default set files was 60, i have changed it to 50)
      – It is running on a VPS
      – The broker i have is ACG markets, live 10k account

      Do anybody know what i should do to get it going so i can pass the challenge soon.

      Thank you.

      Hi Ghiath,

      If you run a backtest, do you see trades that would have opened? It sounds like all your settings are correct, and trades should be opening. I’d suggest running the backtest, saving the results and asking the broker why trades have not executed, when clearly, the backtest shows that they should have. Also, check your journal for any errors. Could be a connectivity issue with the broker’s sever.

       

      Cheers,

      Hello.

      The robot took this trade (inserted image), and I do not understand why exited the trade when it was going the right way, does someone know clearly wich are the exit conditions of it?

      Thanks.

      Difficult to tell from the image above, without the indicators displaying. But, if it exited, it means the exit rule was triggered.

      I have noticed on brokers that do now allow EA trading, such as Rocket21.

      I was force to trade manually on that challenge.

      Check if your selected Prop firm accepts EA trading.

      If it’s the FTMO Robot, which I believe it is, they should be on the chart when you load the EA.  Have you loaded all 8, and do you see the indicators, like this?:

      Hi G.C.,

      MT5 does not work like MT4. With MT5 you need to open the MT5 Editor by clicking in the IDE button in the MT5 tool bar. Then you need to click on one of the EAs to open it. Then you need to click on Compile. The EA will now show up in the Navigator. Now do this for each EA.

        As long as there are less than 2000 identical orders placed per day there is no problem.  Even if there are more than 2000 identical orders placed per day they will email you and ask you to make a change.  If you insist on making your trade unique change the lot size slightly instead of the indicator settings.

        Note:  I use the standard settings and have never had an issue with it.

      EA’s should ideally run on a VPS (not a VPN, but a VPS). This is to prevent having issues due to power or internet outages in your home.

      However, you should still be able to run the robot on your PC.

      When you say it is not working, what exactly do you mean? What are you seeing?

      Hi Milward,

      Yes the robot will work on your pc. If you are using MT4 and there is a smiley face in the upper right corner of the chart then the robot is installed properly. If you are using MT5 and there is a blue hat in the upper right corner of the chart then the robot is installed properly.

      If the robots were not installed properly you need to remove the robot. Make sure the Autotrading or Algotrading button is depressed and then install the robot.

      If the robot is installed properly then you will need to give it more time for a trade to develop. Since you have been waiting for three days now I would expect a trade to develop anytime now.

      If none of these solves your problem please let me know!

      Hi Tanyeem,

      MT4 will use hedging if your broker allows hedging.  MT5 can be setup for hedging or netting when it is installed.  There is an option to select netting.  You can ask your broker to switch your account to netting.

      • #224047
        User AvatarAlan Northam
        Moderator

        The Minimum equity protection is protecting your account balance of $10,000.  So it is keeping your account from trading as trading could result in a loss which would then cause your account to fall below $10,000.  To get this EA to start trading it is necessary to reduce the Minimum equity protection level.  For example, reducing it to $9100 would keep your account from drawing down more than 10%.

        Hi Alan,

        Thanks for the reply again. I have not touched any settings of EA provided and just placed them on the chart as others. I do not understand that why the settings for only this one – GBP AUD M15 are not correct in the set file that I use for $10k account. In fact, the set file provided has these settings below which doesn’t make sense for $10k. Where can I get the default settings from ? Can I simply match the setting from another Robot – e.g. EURUSD M15? Or rather reach out to support to provide me that. I am not in the stage where I would want to tweak it as per my own knowledge but rather trade with the one that Petko has decided for $10k account.

        Hi Sammy,

        The FTMO V5.1 robot setfiles for a 10K account are correct but they are different from the image you have provided.  Somehow, you did not load the correct setfile.  You should have been sent an email with a link for the correct setfiles and robots.  If you do not have these setfiles you will need to  contract support@eatradingacademy.com .

        Also, you cannot just use setfiles for other EAs as the settings will not be correct.

        Thanks Alan, my thoughts were same that I haven’t started trading and it was taken off the EA.

        I have now asked the support to provide me the correct setfiles of that pair. The irony is that, any users who are downloading the robots and those setfiles, they will all have this error as I have now verified that the above settings in the screenshot is the setfile provided in that zip file.

        Now, its the waiting game of when the support will come back to me. I might get my account connect to FXBlue meanwhile.

        In fact, set files are not needed anymore if you use FTMO Robot App website. Now the question is that when I generate my new EA, what shall I do with already opened trades from the older version of EA before I remove the older EA and inject these new EA.

        Yes, if you are going to use FTMO robots v6.0 you no longer need to load the set files.

        As to whether or not to close open trades, that is a personal decision.  Maybe, leave the robots that are in profit continue to trade and let them hit their TP, and close out the losing trades, as an example of how to handle this situation.

      Good day FTMO Robot Team

       

      I trust you are doing well

      I purchased the FTMO robot earlier today.

      It has just opened it’s first positions on my 100k FTMO Demo account.

      I am trialing the robot on Demo before I add it to a live account.

      AUD/USD & USD/CAD opened positions today but I noticed that 2 of the same positions were opened on each of these pairs.

      Is this normal or is there perhaps a setting that I need to change? My Demo account is also connected to a VPS.

      I only have 1 tab open for each pair.

      I have traded EA’s in the past and have never had this problem so I assumed 2 positions were just opened on each pair due to the EA.

       

      2 positions opened on USDCAD at the exact same price & 2 positions opened on AUDUSD at the exact same price. Just worried this is not normal and puts me at higher risk.

        Hi Patrick,

        This happens when the FTMO robots downloaded do not match up with the account balance. For example: If you have an account balance of $10,000 then with the FTMO app you need to select the account size before you download the EAs. You also need to select the correct Max Loss, Max Daily Loss, and the Profit target.

        Hi Patrick,

        What I said was it doesn’t matter if the account is in EUROs or USD. If you need any help adjusting your robots parameters let me know.

        Do you want to set a price target where the robot will stop working?
        Do you want to set a specific account risk you where you will want the robot to stop working?

        Let me know if I can help!

        Happy to hear you got it working!

        Alan,

      Hey Patrick, in a recent discussion Miroslav from our dev team explained why the FTMO Robot deactivates due to the ‘Minimum equity’ protection feature. The robot is designed with three key protections to align with Prop Challenge requirements: Daily loss, Minimum equity, and Maximum equity, with specified thresholds to manage risks effectively. For an account with a different size than the build-in you need to modify the protections and adjust entry lots. For 80,000 EUR account an easy solution would be to divide the relevant properties in the $100,000 robot file by 0.8 (80,000:100,000=0.8).

      I insist, the news filter is not filtering properly. There are news of moderate impact classified as high impact.

      I wonder if this is true? This could explain why my EAs (5 charts) haven’t been trading over the last 2 weeks. I’m going to disable news on all of them and see if that makes a difference. I’ll let you know if I see an improvement over the next week.
