      I have multiple funded accounts and I am wondering if it is possible to add the robot to all. Besides that, is it possible to trade by yourself and not interfere with the bot?

      Can we use EA to make profit after passing phase 1 and phase 2.

    • #187458

      Hey Janan,

      The EAs has no limiatons at all. You can trade with it on funded account after the challenge or you can trade it on regular Forex account.

      Hi

      Has anyone already completed another FTMO challenge (notably Nova Funding) with the bot?
      Are we sure the bot is difficult to detect on Nova?

      Hello there ,

      as I’m watching the ftmo course I came across were Petko was talking about the Forex profit supreme meter .. and I downloaded it from below the video and applied it to my chart but for some reason it’s doesn’t look exactly as shown on Petko’s screen .. The pair names don’t show in full so I can’t read the pair name and also, it’s on top of the of the meter on the left .. please take a look at how it looks on my screen .. I’m attaching both screens how it’s on my screen and how it should be like Petko’s screen … any suggestion why this is happening or how can I fix this ? please note that i looked under the colors tab in the idicator settings and i see nothis to change font size. any one know how to solve this ?

      I just downloaded it and installed the exe file in the indicator folder. I then loaded it onto a chart and it looks normal. Maybe delete it and reinstall and see if it looks correct.

      Hello all,

      what are the settings for the Moving averages?  the three lines that Petko uses in his videos in the ftmo course.. exponential , smoothed, simple, linear .. Which one are they ? Can you please share the settings for the 3 MA used please ?

      It looks like you are using MT4 so that isn’t the problem.

      I wonder if you are installing the correct file?

      https://fxprosystems.com/forex-profit-supreme/

      Install as an indicator.

        It must have something to do with the MT4 terminal.  I would download a new copy of MT4 from your broker and install it.  Then install the indicator and see what happens.

      Hi,

      If I buy the ftmo robots at this course https://eatradingacademy.com/premium-robots/ftmo-robot/

      can I pass ftmo with it following the swapping in and out to market conditions?

      Or do I still need to take the course here https://eatradingacademy.com/courses/ftmo/ftmo-challenge-course/

      i am not much of a trader myself so if the ftmo robots with the swapping in and out would suffice, that would be great.

      You do not need to take the course, however, it is recommended to learn how the EAs work, how to adjust its parameters, and how to select the best ones for trading.

      i tried that too on a new mt4 installation ..  i also tried 3 different mt4 brokers .. and i also tried a totaly different laptop with a new mt4 installation and the same issue still exists .. lol .. im out of options here .. i really dont know what else to do .. this is an integral part of ftmo course .. the first step is to use the indactor to identify the power of currency pairs i should be trading .. as of now i cant seem to do that with not being ablke to see the symbol of the currency or cofirm it.

        Hi Majdi,

        I don’t know what else to suggest either.  I have tried to simulate your problem but cannot make my PC act like what you are seeing when I install the indicator.  When I install the ForexProfitSupremeMeter it works normally as I have shown above in an earlier post.  I will contact Petko about this issue and see if he has any other suggestions.

        Hi Majdi,

        You only need the ForexProfitSupreme Meter if you are going to manually trade an FTMO account.  If you are going to auto-trade then you can skip down to the auto-trading section.   Auto-trading does not require the ForexProfitSupreme Meter.

        Hi Majdi,

        Try the following:

        Close MT4:

        – From File Explorer, right-click on the MT4 terminal file.

        – Select Properties.

        – Go to the Compatibility menu.

        – Click on ‘Change high DPI settings’ near the bottom.

        – Check the box in the area that says ‘High DPI scaling override’. ‘Override high DPI scaling behavior.’

        – Select ‘System (Enhanced)’ as the response to ‘Scaling performed by:’

        – Click OK, then Apply.

        – Take a look at the indicator again in MT4, and hopefully this will work.

      You should be able to use 2 robots, as long as they are on different charts. Depending on the strategies, it can take some time before they make their first trade. Not trading is also trading 🙂

      As I know prop firms have a max allocation? when passed and if i want to use this on the actual live account already using perceptrader on one funded account. But do these ftmo bots randomize the trades at all? i can see from broker to broker they are different but im not sure if it would be on same broker… ALSO MASSIVE THANKS as its performing very well!  Just one certificate from last week

    • #206426
      User AvatarAlan Northam
      Moderator

      Hi Lee,

      The FTMO Expert Advisors do not randomize trades. Having said that the same Expert Advisor will trade somewhat differently from one broker to another. This is because the historical data is not exactly the same from broker to broker. Even if you place the same Expert Advisor on two different charts with the same broker one of the charts may place a trade and the other may not place the same trade at the same time. This is because of the difference in the time it takes metatrader to send the order to the broker varies.

      Congratulations on passing the evaluation stage!

      Hi, I had the same problem with the ForexProfitSupreme Meter display in the beginning, but thanks to the tutorial from Alan, the ForexProfitSupreme Meter is now displayed correctly. But unfortunately I am not getting any values. When I run ForexProfitSupreme Meter I just get the error message ForexProfitSupreme Meter GBPUSD,H1: Alert: Some currency pairs are not available\n for calculating the indices.\n:NZDCAD:NZDCHF:GBPNZD:GBPCAD:GBPAUD\nCalculation formula will be changed.  and no values are loaded.

        Hi Marek,

        It looks like you are having an issue with the broker.  I suggest opening a demo account with another broker and installing the ForexProfitSupreme meter there.  I have tested it with Dukascopy and the indicator works correctly there.  Here is a screenshot:

        Also note the ForexProfitSupreme meter is only used for manual trading.  Once you start auto trading with robots it will not be needed.

      Hi Alan,

      thank you for your test. When I look at your screenshot, I see the AUDNZD currency pair. And if I look at my screenshot, I can see the currency pair GBPUSD_ecn. All my currency pairs have _ecn at the end. When I added other currency pairs to the symbols that do not have _ecn at the end, ForexProfitSupreme Meter works correctly for me. Thanks for the help

          i have the same problem as Marek.

          My pairs are ending with “.”

          For example: EURUSD.

          I dont want to change the broker just because of this problem.

          In the settings of the indicator, I did not find any setting to change that :/

            Hi Luce,

            This usually occurs when the broker operates in more than one country.  Right click in Market Watch and select “Show All”.  You should now be able to scroll down and find the currency pair without the “.”, if I understand your question correctly.

      Hi guys,

      Could you please advise if there is a solution to receive email notifications for all the trades in my account?

      I have already set up SMTP notifications in the MT4 terminal. The issue is that MT4’s alerts only allow for price level notifications. I would like to receive notifications for all trade activities occurring in the account. Do you have any script or EA that can be added to MT4 to generate such alerts to be sent via the standard SMTP function?

      Kind wishes,

      EAtradingacademy does not have any such scripts to do what you are wanting to do.  What you can do however is set up an account with FXblue.com where you will be able to monitor all your trades.

      Hi so i just purchased the Bot and is trying to load it on my MT5. Normally I would just drop the files in the

      \MQL5\Experts\Advisors and hit refresh. But this one seems to be not working for me. Am ! doing something wrong because the EA is not showing on my Experts list and also the file extension is .mq5 vs .ex5

      please clarify. or please send me an instructions on how to load this EA. Thanks

      Open data folder where you’re .mq5 files are. Double-click the file you want to compile. MetaEditor will open the file and you just need to press “compile”. Repeat for all EAs and that’s it!

      I personally like that the bots come in an open-source kind of way.

      Note: The “drop and refresh” process you mention is still possible with MT4. It’s just that MT4 will compile the files for you automatically.

      Hi guys,

      I have installed the V5 on an 8cap demo account about a couple hours ago and no trades. Have someone started to trade? I own the V4.3 and there were some information on the left of the chart. Now the V5 doesn’t show any information. I’ m not sure if there is an issue with my installation.

      I haven’t had any trades as well. I’m pretty sure installation is okay though. The entry conditions changed so I’d give it some more time.

      It’s normal to not have as much information on the chart as V5 has been done with another generator.

      As long as you have a smiley face, it should be good. Worst case you can paste your settings here, and we can take a look 🙂

      Hello All

      I just bought the FTMO EA, busy with the setup. Very much looking forward to this process, being that I have failed two previous evaluations with other prop firms…the journey of trading is not an easy one 🙂

      Quick question though. Once the challenge has been passed, can I continue with the EA’s on my live (funded) account as well?

    • #211072
      User Avatardusktrader
      Participant

      I think the answer is “yes” since you are in control of using these EAs. I am still testing the FTMO Robot(s) but if they perform well, I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t continue using them even after passing a challenge.

    • #211073

      Hello, can you please confirm that restarting MT4 in the middle of active bot trading is fine, and that the bots will just pick up where they left off?

      For example, if I have FTMO Robot v4.3 and there are 3 trades open… then I reboot my computer and restart MT4 — will it just continue managing those 3 open trades as usual?

      Thank you

      Hi Nicholas,

      Yes, once you are funded you can continue to use the EA. Keep in mind however, there will be periods of profit and periods of drawdowns. Over the long term however the EA should be profitable. As to how long the EA will continue to be profitable over the long term is an unknown. To reduce the risk of the EA turning unprofitable over the longer term Peko updates the EA from time to time. It is then up to you if you want to switch to the updated EAs or continue to use the existing EA.

      I only installed yesterday, but I notice that the relatively far SL/TP numbers mean that some trades may be open for long periods of time. You might want to use FTMO swing account for this if going FTMO route.

      On another note, thanks to the CPI news this morning my trial that I started yesterday already surpassed the 5% lol. But this really means nothing; if the news had been the other way then I would have hit a few stoplosses

        Hi Kevin,

        The FTMO swing accounts are the way to go!

        The fact that the CPI news caused your demo account to surpass the 5% level tells me you are taking too much risk.  Like you say, if the CPI went the other way, or your trade was in the opposite direction it could have caused you to get locked out for the rest of the day.

          Thanks Alan, however this was just a demo free trial with standard set files attached. Running all 7 EAs as instructed.

          CPI was pretty crazy today.

      How do i setup the robot to not make trades when there has been a drawdown or 3 or 4%?

    • #213510
      User AvatarAlan Northam

      It depends upon the robot. Basically, the way to reduce risk is to keep lot size small. How small? This is where backtesting or testing in a demo account can help. Backtesting, or demo trading for a month or two, will give a good idea of how much is the typical drawdown. From this information you can then determine the lot size you should use.

      What robot are you referring too and I can give you an idea of the lot size you should use.

      Hi Olivier,

      Yes you can use the same EAs on multiple accounts.
      You can also manually trade the same account and it will not affect the robot.

      Hi,

      I have downloaded the Profit Meter, but I am getting only few pairs.

      In the journal log, I can see this:

      2023.11.23 23:04:04.435 ForexProfitSupreme Meter EURUSD,H4: Alert: Some currency pairs are not available\n for calculating the indices.\n:AUDUSD:USDCAD:EURAUD:EURCAD:EURCHF:EURGBP:EURJPY:GBPJPY:GBPCHF:NZDUSD:AUDCAD:AUDJPY:CHFJPY:AUDNZD:NZDJPY:NZDCAD:NZDCHF:GBPNZD:EURNZD:GBPCAD:GBPAUD:AUDCHF:CADCHF:CADJPY\nCalculation formula will be changed.

      Can you please help me check what’s wrong with my setup?

      Do you also have the MT5 version so I don’t have to switch to another terminal? I mainly use MT5

      Thanks!

      ok nice. i wrote the support they told me i should trade better manualy bc of the capital allocation rule but didnt understand completly. i think when we trade all with the same EA it is only allowed up to 400k capital so if 4 people here have each 100k account the rest will not get payout ? i guess if i got it right

        That means you can only have a maximum of 400K account.  So if you have multiple FTMO accounts the total capital cannot be more than 400K.  It has nothing to do with the total capitalization of multiple users.

              FTMO :”If you intend to use trading robots (Expert Advisors – EAs), keep in mind that if you use an EA from a third party, there might be other traders already using the same EA and therefore exactly the same strategy. By using a third-party EA, you potentially run a risk of being denied the FTMO Account if you exceed the maximum capital allocation rule.’”

              The fact is that the capital allocation rule is per trader and per strategy

              so if  30 traders are using the same EA on their FTMO Account, and they each have a 100K FTMO Account, they will breach the rule

              Sorry I just now stumbled upon this response and I wanted to clear up any confusion.

              Here is what I said, “There is nothing in the terms and conditions that says anything about more than one trader using the same third party EA’s.”

              In otherwords, there is nothing in the terms and conditions that says only one trader can use the same strategy, many traders can use the same strategy.

              Where the problem come into play is when the total of all traders accounts reach 3 million dollars.  Once this limit is reached then all traders using the same strategy will be asked to change their strategy.  It is only if the traders refuse to change their strategy will their accounts be locked out.  According to Petko, all you need to do to change the strategy is to change the magic number.  So until the 3 million dollar limit is reached traders can use the same strategy.  You are not going to lose your account.  The worse thing you may have to do is to change the magic number.  A good reason to use MT4 because MT5 does not use magic numbers.  I don’t know if adding a comment would change the strategy just as a magic number does.

              Hope this clears up the confusion.

      Hey Ocean,

      You can see the issue on your chart – Min Equity Protection Activated. You have uploaded Set Files that have a min quity value and the amount you have in the account is lower. That is why the EA removed the Expert Advisor.

      Change the value in the Experts input according to your acocunt size and it will work smotthly.

      Yes!  When using MT5 it will automatically set up with a hedging account.  A hedging account is where you can have a long and short trade on the same pair at the same time.  A netting account is where you can only have a long or a short trade on the same pair at the same time.  It is my understanding that FTMO,com only allows hedging on one account.  So, if you want to open a second FTMO account you should verify with FTMO support on how to do this using MT5.

        If you cannot close the trade manually it sounds like you are trying to close the trade when the market is not open.  If the market is open and you still cannot close the trade manually it sounds like a problem with your broker.

      New to the FTMO Robot community looking forward already to the New Year when I will start trading actively again. In the mean time I have been running some back tests and will be setting them all up on a demo account where I can monitor the progress.

      I read back through the thread and I’d like to bring to the community on what I do before I start trading in a usual week. I will look through the majors and get a sense of the direction bearish or bullish. I will also correlate my major with DXY to see if my thought process is correct.

      What I’m going to test in this theory is that if I’m bullish on one pair and lets take EURUSD as an example setting the EURUSD to only take long set ups and of course if I was bearish setting it to only take shorts.

      Wondering is any others have tried this ?

        Hi Anthony,

        I would also suggest you take the same EA and let it decide to take a long or short trade without your intervention.  Then compare the results between letting the EA make the decision to go long or short to the EA where you make that same decision.

      When you restart your MT4 terminal the open trades will remain open.  The only problem I see is if you have an open trade that is very near hitting its TP.  So, if while restarting the terminal and the market moves to the price of your TP price level the open order will not be closed because the terminal is not able to send the TP signal to the brokers server.  So, as long as none of your open trades are not close to a TP or SL price there is no problem with restarting your terminal.

      During the weekend any open trades you have will remain open.

      I do this because i had several problems with connecting the EA with MyFXBook the “normal” way because often MyFxBook couldnt connect to the Account with the FTMO EA.

        You just have to open a second chart. Each chart can only have one EA attached at a time. To run multiple EAs just requires multiple charts open at once.

          Hi Tyler,

          Your account has lost 20%, or  40,000 EUR, of its equity and is now at the same dollar level as the Minimum Equity in the EA Properties dialog box.  So to protect your account from further loss the EA is removed from the chart so it can no longer place losing trades.  To allow your account to start placing trades again you will need to change the Minimum Equity from 160000 to a smaller amount.

      Hello,

      I have bought the FTMO robot today and after completing the course.

      I have been given the video ‘FTMO Complete Guide’ – Youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6SrGqplaF4

      In this video, Petko is selecting FTMO Swing Account for a $200k acc which comes with leverage 1:30 and one can hold position overnight and trade on news.

      Is this is good practice to select FTMO Swing account and not a Regular account?

      If a regular is recommended then do I have close all position manually on Friday night and stop the Robot?

        Hi Sammy,

        With the FTMO account you cannot trade during the news or hold positions over the weekend.  The advantage is the leverage is  100:1.  The FTMO account is good for manual trading but not good for trading EAs.

        With the FTMO swing account you can trade during the news and you can hold positions over the weekend.  The disadvantage is the leverage is 30:1.  This account is good for trading with EAs and the leverage of 30:1 is plenty.

        If you use the FTMO account and trade with EAs you will have to manually close all trades during the news events.  This will be difficult to keep up with as there are a lot of news events each month.  I would not recommend this approach.

        It is possible to look at each robot in EA Studio or the source code and try to identify which of the FTMO robots are range trading or trend trading, however, to me, the proof is in the pudding how they actually perform while trading. Therefore, it is my opinion, the best way to identify which robots perform best in ranging and trending markets is to put them in a demo account, identify ranging and trending markets, and then see which robots perform best during these different market conditions.

      Morning all!

      I am not sure whether this question has been asked above already so apologies if so.

      Question is if there are several thousand people using the EA and we are using the same Prop Firm do they not detect trades being copied or is there variance programmed into the bot?

      Thanks again for your answer. 😉

        Hi Mathew,

        You don’t need to worry about the same EA being used by others while in the FTMO Challenge and Verification as the third party EA rule only applies to funded accounts.

      Hi Petko, I have setup the EA on my demo account with alphacapitalgroup on meta trader 5, but so far the bots haven’t taken even a single trade. While trying to run backtests, the bots are showing 0 trades. I have followed the exact steps in the video shared by you. Can you pin point the common mistakes that might result in this?

      Thanks

        Hi Shashway,

        The first thing is to make sure you see a blue hat in the upper right corner of the trading chart.  If the hat is blue then the robots have been setup correctly.  Secondly, did you install the correct robots.  For example, if your account size is $10,000 then you need to download and install the $10,000 robots.  The account size and the chosen robots must match.  Thirdly, does the time period of each robot match the time period of each chart as they are different for the various robots.  Lastly, if you have just installed the robots within the last day or two you will need to give it another day or two for the robots to make their first trades.

        You aren’t going to be able to run this on Alpha Capital Group (I have accounts there). You’ll need to share the source code of your EA to get permission to run it on your account, which means you’ll have to create your own EA and strategies instead of a ready made one. EA trading is disabled by default on their accounts until they enable it.

            Hi Shashwat,

            You could go ahead and ask permission to use the robots.  Maybe since no one else is using the same robots they may approve them.  The worse thing that could happen is that they turn you down.

        Hi Shashwat,

        At least now you know for sure they wouldn’t accept the EA.

        As for the FTMO demo account.  If you are using FTMO V6.0 robots did you make sure the account size of the demo account matches the downloaded robots.  For example, if your account size is a $10,000 account then the downloaded robots should be the $10,000 download of the robots.  Also if you testing the robots using MT4 do you see smiley faces, or if you are using MT5 do you see a blue hat in the upper right corner of the charts.  If these things were done correctly then you just need to give it more time to start seeing trades.  I have also been testing the FTMO V6.0 robots this week in an FTMO account.  I have 3 open trades going.  One was opened on 01/08/2024, one on 01/10/2024 and one on 01/11/2024.  Notice there was not a open trade taken on 01/09/2024 that day was skipped.  So it is possible that when you start a new FTMO demo account it may take a day or maybe even two days before you will start seeing trades opened.  So, hang in there, be patient, and give it time.

          This is only happening on the dipgate VPS that I have recently started, while trying on my personal system, the backtest ran properly, so I’m still confused on what the issue is. I’ll probably setup something on another VPS and check first.

      Hello,

      I would like to update the FTMO robot but I currently have 6 trades open which I wouldn’t want to interrupt. I understand that the TPs and SLs are already there but sometimes the robot closes trades before TP or SL is reached. So I worry that if I change the robot while the trades are open, the new robot will not know what to do with the trades opened by the older version.

      So my question is, what is the best way to replace the old robot with the new?

      Kind Regards,

        Hi Bence,

        When replacing the old robots with the new robots just make sure to use the old robots magic number and copy it into the new robot if the new robots have different magic numbers.  Then the new robots should recognize the open trades.

        Hi Danny,

        The reason for using EAs/robots instead of manually trading the markets is to let the EAs do the trading for you.  The EAs created at eatradingacademy are the result of backtesting 1000s of strategies to find the most profitable ones.  As a result, it is not necessary to intervene in the trading of the EAs.  However, some traders do intervene by closing trades early.  Every trader has the right to trade the EAs as they seem fit.  However, by closing the trades early limits the potential profit of the trade.  Over the long, term there is a higher probability for higher profits by not intervening in the operation of the EAs.

      Hi hiukiny,

      I would recommend using the swing account when using EAs.

      Using low risk accounts are a good way to go. It will take longer to pass a Challenge but reduces the potential for losing your account. Same with funded accounts!

      Hi Nake,

      The choice is yours when it comes to deleting all old robots and installing new.

      One strategy would be to remove all old robots and install the new ones. Another strategy would be to keep the top performing robot and just install the top 2 new robots. And, another would be to keep the top 2 robots and install just the top 1 new robot. A final strategy would be to replace all robots with new ones.

      So which strategy is best? You could open 4 demo accounts and test each strategy to determine strategy that works best for you.

      As a new trader you might just remove all the old robots and replace with the new ones.

      Hi Tanyeem,

      This is an individual trader decision. Here is what I normally do. If my EA has an open profitable trade I will normally keep it open over the weekend. This allows my EA to continue to profit from the current favorable market conditions. However, if my open trade is close to hitting the TP I will normally go ahead and close the trade. However, if my current EA is in a losing position I will normally close the trade on Friday. This will allow my EA to start a new position the following week.

      Give the EA some time to work.

      Try backtesting them in the meantime.

       

      I have done backtests on majority of the files from the FTMO robot app and I picked up that most of them take between 10 – 13 trades a month. You can’t expect the EA’s to be trading all the time.

       

      The most important thing is that the EA’s take high probability trades only. Be patient & don’t rush the system.

       

      Luckily all the Prop firms don’t have maximum trading days anymore so you can be patient and let the EA’s do the work.

      Good day EA Trading academy team

       

      Quick question with regards to backtesting

      When I back test I usually look at the Results column as well.
      I am focusing on Profit, Drawdown, Profit factor and recovery factor.

      I also look at the actual results column though.

      Is there a specific number we should be aiming for in the results column or is looking at the above mentioned enough to do an accurate backtest?

      Hi Richard,

      I look for a Profit Factor of at least 1.2 because it tells me the strategy is profitable.
      I look for a Drawdown of less than 10% because the deeper the drawdown the longer it takes to recover the loss.
      I look at the count of trades as this tells me how active is the strategy.
      I look at Profit as I can take it and divide it by the number trades so I can forecast expected profits in the future

      So I am looking for an active strategy, the profitability of the strategy, quickly recovery from a drawdown, and expectation of future profits.

      Hi Kevwefreeb,

      Here is the thing about trading: As traders we look at past performance to determine if the instrument we want to trade is in an uptrend. We then expect the trend to continue so we place a trade. However, no one knows with 100% confidence if the trend will continue in the future. Have you ever looked at the stock market? Normally it will go higher but there are times when it goes down. However, over the long term the stock market continues to mover higher and higher.

      The same thing applies to Expert Advisors or EAs/robots. Expert Advisors are created based upon the past performance of currency pairs. The majority of times these EAs will be profitable. However, there are times when EAs will go through a drawdown. How do we handle this? The way we handle this is with consistency. A successful trader will keep trading knowing that as long as he/she is consistent they will be profitable over the long term. You can never be a successful trader if you do not continue trading over the long term. So continue to trade on a demo account until you feel you have become a successful trader and then move on to a live account.

      Hope this brings new encouragement to you!

      Hi all,

       

      I am using the FTMO robot on a trial account (yes I am aware there is no longer a need) but I was familiarising myself with the mechanics before entering a challenge. I have an issue where trades are automatically closing early, not hitting either SL or TP. Has anyone else had this issue? I have added all of the standard FTMO bots and made no changes. I have used the correct risk and account size bots. If I am doing something wrong I would really appreciate any help 🙂

      Many thanks!

        Hi Hope and Richard,

        The FTMO V6.0 robots have a built in indicator that is used for closing positions.  When this indicator signals a close the robot will be closed.  The TP and SL are used as a secondary method of closing closing trades when the built in indicator does not signal a close.

      If the FTMO EA has a built in indicator as suggested, why did it open two trades on the same pair, but closed one prematurely while the other was left open? Couldn’t/shouldn’t it be closing both trades??

        Hi Kevwefreeborn,

        With two open trades for the same pair suggest to me there are two instances of MetaTrader trading the same Expert Advisors.  The reason why only one trade is closed in this case is because the Expert Advisor looked for the magic number of the open trade and closed it.  The Expert Advisor thinks it did it job because it only opens one trade at a time and therefore does not look to close a second position with the same magic number.

        When did you close the trades?  If you closed the trades when the spread is very large the cost of the spread can wipe out profits.

      Hi Jesus,

      According to Petko all you need to do is to make the magic numbers different. However, there is no problem with the strategies being the same during the Challenge and Verification stages according to FTMO support. Where the problem come is when you are funded. Once funded you need to make the magic numbers different.

      Thank you for your reply.

      I closed the trades around the end of the NY session. Morning hours New Zealand time.

      So you recommend I should leave these EAs running without touching them at all?Or better to close the profitable trades during London session when the spreads are very low?

      What do you think?What do you recommend?

        Yes, during the end of the NY session the spreads are very high so this is the reason you didn’t have any profit.  Personally, I do not manually close trades I let the robots decide when it is best to close trades.

      Good afternoon,

      I’ve already purchased the FTMO robot, and I’d like to prove it on a real account but before that, I would like to make sure I don’t breach any rule of the prop firms. So, I’ve seen that many of the prop firms allows the use of EA but, they add that the EA has to be “unique” and not of third parties, so, how can I do to make sure I don’t break that rule using the FTMO EA robot?

       

      Thank you in advance!

      If I use the FTMO Robot, could FTMO (or another prop firm) deny my account?

      FTMO says: “They also need to keep in mind that if they use a third-party EA, there may already be other traders using the same EA and, therefore, the exact same strategy. By using a third-party EA, traders run the risk of being denied an FTMO Account because they exceed the maximum capital allocation rule.”

      If yes, what can I do? Any recommendations?

      It’s nice and great to build robots to passing the challenges, but the real money is made with funded accounts.  How can we use the app for robots to use on funded accounts?  All that needs to be done is to disable to the Balance target for a challenge account.

      Hi Willard,

      Yes just set “Max Equity (currency)” to zero to disable it and double check all other settings are correct for your account size and agrees with the Daily Loss and Max Loss of the funded account.

      Hi Jotaele1,

      According to Petko all you need to do is to make the magic number different. Also, I have learned from the FTMO. com support the third party rule does not apply when taking a Challenge or Verification. The only time the third rule applies is with funded accounts.

      Thank you for your response. I’ve also heard that, and that’s the reason why I ask this, because I’d like to use the ftmo robot once I pass the challenge.

      Is there another thing I should change to not get banned from the third rule?

       

      Thank you in advance,

      Hi Guys

      I about to start my FX2 $10000 challenge. My main concern is the draw downs and meeting this challenge.

      FX2

      $10,000

      Profit Target
      $1,000
      Daily Loss Max
      4%
      Trailing Drawdown*
      6%

      Q) Will the $10,000 FTMO app set file meet this challenge?

      Q) What is a Trailing drawdown?

      Thanks for the advice in advance.

        Hi Joseph,

        With FX2 you will need to make some adjustments to the Expert Advisors parameters.

        A trailing stop is a stop the moves higher as the profit moves higher and always stays 6% behind whatever the profit currently is.

        If you are using MT4 then you can change the magic number.  MT5 does not use a magic number.   To change the magic number right click on the smiley face, go to expert advisor, and click on properties.  Double click on the magic number and you can then change it.

        If you are using MT5 then right click on the blue hat, click on properties and you can change some of the parameters.  I would suggest just changing the take profit and stop loss slightly.

      If you have a sample image of the set file adjustment that would be fantastic.

      Before installing the Expert Advisors on the MT4 charts the Auto Trade button in the toolbar needs to be pressed. After pressing the Auto Trade button then install the Expert Advisors.

      Hello,

      when placing the EA, I can check “Allow Algo Trading” (sure) and “Allow modification of Signals settings” – do you have to allow this as well? What does it actually mean exactly?

      Thank you very much and have a nice day.

      Kind regards,

        Hello Oliver,

        Allow Algo Trading: This setting enables or disables the ability of the Expert Advisor to trade automatically. When you check this option, you’re allowing the EA to execute trades on its behalf according to its programmed strategy. It’s essential for the EA to function as intended.
        Allow Modification of Signal Settings: This option is a bit more nuanced. It allows the EA to modify the trade levels (entry, stop loss, and take profit levels) of orders it sends based on signals it generates or receives. This capability can be crucial for strategies that adjust trade parameters in response to changing market conditions. Enabling “Allow Modification of Signal Settings” means you’re giving the EA flexibility to adjust its trading signals based on its algorithm’s interpretation of the market. This can include adjusting stop loss or take profit levels after the trade is placed or modifying the entry point of a trade before it’s executed, depending on the EA’s design and strategy.

        Please watch the FTMO Robot App guide where the settings you need to enable when placing the EAs are explained.

        Kind regards,

        Marin @ Customer Support

      Hi. I have just bought the FTMO robot. I have two challenges going, one with GFN and one with Top One Trader. I manage to start the FTMO robot on the GFN 100k account. But the Top One Trader 100k account it is not starting. The EA will not load on the chart and I get the error message EA turned off and the blue hat dissappear. The 100k account have been upgraded to 125k since it was a promotion campaign. I have tried to modify the max drawdawn, max and min equity settings but no luck. Still not loading on the chart. Any idea of what I shall do here? Here is a screenshot of how it looks.

      Hi Alan.

      I have watched and followed the steps in this video. I manage to load it on my GFN account, but on my TopOneTrader account it is not starting. I am able to start other EAs on this TopOneTrader account, but not FTMO EA. It is allowed to use the EA on more than one challenge right? The video dont explain to me any scenarios why the EA is not starting. My account is a 100k account but I got 125k as a promotion from TopOneTrader. Does it have anything to do with not beeing 100k or 200k as a standard amount, but 125k?

      Any ideo of why this is happening?

        Hi Morten,

        The problem is you have downloaded the 100K FTMO robots but are not using them on a 100K challenge. Instead you are using them on a 125K challenge. So you get them working you need to change the Maximum Daily loss, the Minimum equity, and the Maximum equity parameters in the robot properties box to agree with your accounts requirements.

      The Robot opened its first trade a month ago today. As of this writing, I am currently down about $865 on a $25,000 swing account. All set files are on medium risk (I made no changes to any settings). For the first week or maybe two, I was running all 8 pairs. Since then I have dialed it back to the weekly top 3 only, reassessing every Saturday. The Robot has placed a total of 29 trades. Only 2 have hit take profit, and 10 have hit the stop loss.

      Any recommendations to make this thing perform a little better? Lower risk? Less pairs?

      Seeing some challenges passed in a matter of days make me think I’ve missed something.

      TIA for any help!

      Hi,

      Currently, I am up +1% in my testing account ($10,000).

      However, after reviewing Petko’s audited account titled “FTMO Robot – Top 1 Scale 25k Challenge FPF,” I have a question: Does Petko close positions manually, or does the EA leave them until TP or SL? (https://www.myfxbook.com/members/PetkoA/ftmo-robot-top-1-scale/10494226)

      Upon checking the positions, only 1 out of 25 hit TP, and 4 hit SL out of 25. The others were closed, apparently manually, because they neither hit TP nor SL.

      When or where should I close the positions (e.g., on Friday afternoon)? Or does the EA close them without hitting TP?

      Thank you, Petko, if you can clarify this!

        The FTMO robots have a built in indicator that usually tells the robots when to close their trades. The SL and TP are secondary.

        Hi Felipe,

        The length of a trade can depend upon many things such as the number of indicators, the time frame, scaling, the market conditions, and the prop firm used, is the positions closed manually, etc. I know Petko will often scale up his lot size as the robot becomes profitable, this shortens the time frame. I am not aware of how Petko has traded the robots in his myfxbook account. For further insight into how he manages the robot time frame in myfxbook I would suggest asking the question to support@eatradingacademy.com. I am in Texas and contracted to moderate the forum and help traders with their problems so I don’t have day to day contact with Petko or how he trades. All I know about how he trades is from his videos.

      Hi Nicholas,

      Petko says the FTMO Expert Advisors can be used on other prop firms and he has passed challenges with other prop firms. Personally, I only have experience using the Expert Advisors with FTMO and Infinity Forex Funds. Also, there are several traders complaining the Expert Advisors are not placing trades on other prop firms. My suggestion is to stick with FTMO Challenges until you get funded or use Infinity Forex Funds. This way you will not have any problems with the Expert Advisors trading.

Also did you chose the correct Max Loss, Max Daily Loss, and Profit Target to match the prop firm specifications so you won’t blow your account?

        Hi Aaron,

        Risk is associated with the lot size so the smaller the lot size the lower the risk. Sometimes what I do is make the lot size 0.01 this keeps the account active and does not affect the account balance significantly. I then track the results with FXblue. Then when I see one of the robots starting to make profits I increase the lot size until the profits start to drop off. Then I reduce the lot size back to 0.01 and start all over again.

      Hello,

      I downloaded the ZIP files containing the 100k historical data of the three most profitable currencies. However, when running the simulations, I encountered some issues.

      Firstly, EURAUD was opened with a lot size of 7 and resulted in losses. The other two currencies are being opened with lot sizes of 0.02 and 0.04, even though I configured the entry lots to be 3 and 5, respectively, in the inputs.

      Could you please help me understand why the lot sizes are not being respected during opening positions? I appreciate your assistance in resolving this issue.

      For me it’s the same unfortunately. I have been using the FTMO EA since 2 weeks and so far it’s a constant looser… I am curious if anyone is making here good profits with this EA long-term? I read only about losses and about that refund requests are not beeing answered… So far it doesn’t look good overall.

      They say you need to take the Top3- Top5 of the week. But I like a more detailled video about it.

      In the weekend I take the Top3 of the previous week. I have a few trades during the next week (last time losing it) but what do you have to do at the end of the week? Closing the open trades? Can you do a trialing stop (to protect your losses and lock your profits)

       

      So much Questions

      You can select the Y1 or Y5 on the FTMO app to view all the robots. Then you can look at the right edge of the charts to see which robots are being profitable and which ones are being losers.

        Hello,

        Yes the money is returned to the payment method you used when making the initial order payment. It takes 5-10 business days from the moment we initiate the refund (this is the moment when you received the automatic email  from our platform) until the money will be available in your card. In most cases it takes less time but this would depend on the payment processor you’re using.

        Kind regards,

      Hi Guys,

      Have you seen the news that most of the propfirm have already stopped offering broker that allowd MT4/5.  True Forex Funds have migrated my challened to C-TRade platform and Funded Trading plus has announed that they are stopping MT4 and one can only trade in DXTrade.

      I see on FTMO website as well now that they have listed DX and looks as they are going to stop providing broker with MT4/5 platform. I am pretty sure thtat even FTMO will son eventually stop offering brokers with Meta Trader, in fact this is all because MetaQuest is locking down their licenses due to US traders.

      FTMOI am now on a mission to see if there’s any software which would migrate the MT4 EA to DXTrade, or is there anyway I can copy trade their. Any advice will be helpful.

        Hi Sammy,

        FTMO is no longer allowing traders in the United States to use MT4 or MT5 and have migrated current US traders accounts to DXtrade. I had 5 ongoing Challenges. I asked for a refund and received full refund for all five of my challenges.

        Also, TradersConnect is working on an app to allow copy trading from MT4 or MT5 to DXtrader and should be available in a few weeks.

      Hi Alan

      Yes, plenty of prop firm, like True Forex funds and Funded Trading plus has forced the UK trader (including US ofcourse) to move to another platform and they (their new broker) have comopletely stopped supporting MT4/5. Some are offering CTrader and others offering DXTrader. The trouble with this, EA from MT4 can’t be used their or can’t be made compatible to use their. However, I heard that it is now possible to do a trade copy from a demo MT4 account to CTrader. Again the demo is not provided by these propfirm, so demo account with any broker and copy those trade to CTrader for prop firm broker.

      This will cause slippage and discrepancy, but lets see how far we can go with this. At this moment we dont have a choice but to adopt the new platform. FTMO, they will stop providing MT4/4 broker sooner or later. You watch.

      Hi everyone, I purchased the FTMO experts, I saw the guide and I don’t understand a thing. When I connect my account to Myfxboox I have to put the seven pairs with the EA in order to see the trend, my question is which timeframe should I choose? is indifferent? Otherwise I would have to open many demo accounts for each timeframe.. m1/m5/m15 etc..? how should I adjust?

      Questions about FTMO robot.

      I just purchased FTMO robot from your page and apply FTMO 100K challenge 2 weeks ago, and I saw your “FTMO robot”page has been removed due to the problem of banned account.

      May I know:
      1. Can I get the money back for the FTMO robot?
      2.Do you know can I cancelled my FTMO 100K challenge and get the money back? I haven’t open any trade yet.

      This is the problem with this industry!

      Why sell a product to traders if you are not even sure whether the product you are selling is sound and works like you say it does?

      It’s all marketing and sales to entice a person and take their money!

      Then you put someone in charge of the Forum that did not build the robot and does not understand how it works?
      It sounds like a big money making scheme to me. I have read very few positive comments about the FTMO robot and now I even noticed that it is no longer for sale. Each week the EA’s are updated to new pairs. How on earth is a person meant to run an EA based trading system if they need to change the EA’s on a weekly basis. This is not how EA trading works. I left these robots running on my account for weeks and it has honestly been shocking.

      I requested a refund and that in itself is a whole other story to get the money back from EA Trading academy.

       

      Alan, sorry you are the one that has to deal with all these comments. This system has obivously not been tested properly before being released to the public.

      Hey Richard,

      I am sorry to read your disappointment! I am not sure what you mean by the product is not for sale; it is still on the website, and we haven’t put it down for a second.

      We developed the app because many were asking for stats, and this was the best way for the traders to see the performance for the different periods. Also, we test each robot before releasing its course.

      If you request a refund, my team will respond on time. Recently we have received 100s of e-mails, and it takes a while to go over all of them.

            Hi hsin cheng chen,

            The reason why it is not working in the picture above is the “Maximum Equity Protection” has been activated. This protection needs to be changed in the robots properties dialog box when installing the robot. If you are using the robot on a brokerage account you can disable this protection by changing the value in the dialog box to zero.

              Hi hsin cheng chen,

              I noticed your demo account balance is $11,000. The following settings would stop your account from trading if it loses 5% in one day, it will also stop your account from trading if it loses a total of 10%, and it will also stop your account from trading if you have a profit of 10%. If you do not want any of these protections then just set them to zero.

              Max Daily Loss 539
              Minimum Equity 9911

      A couple of quick questions if I may?

      I am using the Prop Firm Robot, I have selected the last 1 month of results. Using it on a $25k account, using the Top 3 with medium risk (1%) and high risk news filter – Is there anything else I need to do? Assuming I just add the 3 pairs and turn on the EA and let it run? Do I need to be closing trades or just simply leave it?

      Thanks!

          I thought as much, I really like the premise of the robots, its a great idea and can be used for any account. I am confident from the backtests it will provide a nice monthly profit, my personal target is 5% profit a month, if it can do that or more then we are off to the races long term.

        When those three are set to zero it means they are disabled. When they are disabled they will not affect the operation of the robot. The robot will continue to open and close one position at a time. I always leave them set to zero.

      hello, i was watching your youtube videos, and i think your  ea  got banned because its not unique. The rule for ea at ftmo : “

      If you intend to use trading robots (Expert Advisors – EAs), keep in mind that if you use an EA from a third party, there might be other traders already using the same EA and therefore exactly the same strategy. By using a third-party EA, you potentially run a risk of being denied the FTMO Account if you exceed the maximum capital allocation rule.”

      is the solution just to modify the ea a little bit like few numbers? Or moving SL and TP few pips? Maybe in this case there is no rule-breake right? What do you recommend, because i want reeallz to trade ea on ftmo, but imagine thez cancel my 200k ftmo

But do these ftmo bots randomize the trades at all? i can see from broker to broker they are different but im not sure if it would be on same broker… ALSO MASSIVE THANKS as its performing very well! Just one certificate from last week”

        Hi Joseph,

        The robot stopped trading because the Minimum Equity Protection at 6200 has been activated by the price on the chart has moved down to this price level. This Minimum Equity Protection keeps your challenge from failing and you losing your account.

            Hi Joseph,

            Just put those numbers into your robot properties and the robot should start working.

      The EA still hasn’t set a trade for me, it’s been running since last Thursday. Maybe I installed something wrong. I installed AU 6.0 and Xauusd 6.0/6.1

        Hi Skeltor0906,

        I haven’t had much success picking the top 1 to top 3 from the Prop Firm Robots W1 or M1 settings. So I changed the way I select the robots. I set the Prop Firm Robots settings to Y5 and download and install all 14 robots in a Challenge. I then set the lot size to 0.01 for each of the 14 robots. This way when they trade they will not change the account balance significantly. I then let them all trade for 1 week. I then find the one or two robots that have traded during the week. I then set the lot size for these robots back to their normal value they had when downloaded. This way you let the market pick the robots that are performing well in the current market environment instead of you picking them. This will probably work better for you!

        HI Alan,

        This is some images from my trading account. As you can see from the image trading stopped on the 05/03/2024. No new trade has been taken by the FTMO APP.

        As you can see Alan no trades have been taken.

        Do you have any solution to resolve this issue?

        Thanks in advance

        Joseph

          Hi Joseph,

          It looks like you have things setup correctly and as long as the MT4/MT5 has a smiley face or a blue hat in the upper right corner of the chart it should be placing trades. Can you do a backtest with the Strategy Tester to see how often trades are being taken?

          Alan,

      Should I stop the position that the robot entered or does it stop itself (the position has been active for 24 hours)

      Hi Gent,

      The EA should have placed a TP and SL on for the trade, meaning you could let it ride to conclusion, until either one of those is hit, or close it whenever you like.
      Your trading style and risk profile is up to you.

      Does that help?

      Warmly
      Matt

      Yes, this did happen to Petko, and he has also uploaded a video about it. You can watch it here:

      Hey guys,

      I want to use your Prop Firm bots on an AscendX challenge, but one of their rules is not to use martingale strategy.. so my question is do any of the bots in the pack use this strategy that could cause the evaluation to fail?

       

      thanks in advance,

      Hi Gavin,

      The Prop Firm robots do NOT use grid or martingale.

      Hi erlas,

      The most often used method is to select W1. Also do not forget to select Account size, Max loss, Max daily loss, Profit target, risk, and news filter option. Next select the robot you want to download. Finally select MT4 or MT5 to download.

      Alan,

      Hi,
      I selected a robot i wish to try on my MT5 terminal, i have dowloaded the bot, but how do i then install onto the MT5 chart? when i click on it, it just opens up into meta editor.

      I want to download and then add onto a chart, is there a video on how to do this?

      After downloading the mql file and opening it in the Metaeditor, you would need to compile it for the EA file to be created. This will add the corresponding EA file right above the mql file in the same folder/location you have your mql file at. You can then transfer/copy-paste the newly created EA file to your MT5 terminal data folder -> mql5 -> experts.

      After that close the window and then refresh the experts list in your MT5 by right click in the navigator experts list tab then click refresh. This will bring the new EA in the list ready for you to add to the corresponding chart. I hope this helps.

        Hi Carl,

        No, because the banks are closed on the weekends.
