Hello happy traders :D! Apologies for taking so long since the last post....I was on holidays :D But that doesn't mean a LOT of stuff didn't happen....a LOT OF STUFF HAPPENED!! First bit is that I'm ready to say: Grid Fusion has convinced me of being the real deal(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)! This EA is well coded, and it works as advertised! I crossed the 1,000 mark :love::love::love::love:!!!! Of course, if you are not prudent and treat it as a fire and forget EA, you will eventually find your way to some mess....but if you use it with your head, you should be all right :) The performance so far has been excellent, by now I have seen it go through some rough weather, and it has breezed through it. Of course, it's all about the settings, and like I've said before, you need to look at your money management approach and set the gaps/levels according to YOUR account. For the record, I have not changed the settings of the main grid since I started running Grid Fusion, so you can find my set up at the beginning of this thread. And this is how that grid fared the last couple of days:

581

It's a beauty ain't it :love::love::love::love::love:?

But that is not the BIG news today!! The big news is that I started using the GridSync feature and I am running it in its FULL GLORY(y)(y)(y)!!! So I am running to 2 Grid Fusion grids trading together!!!! How cool is that:love::D?!?!?!

So this is my now SECOND Grid Fusion grid :)

582

This the configuration I am using:

583

This means the SECOND Grid Fusion grid will wait for the FIRST grid to open 3 trades.
When the FIRST grid opens the 3rd trade, the SECOND will start its cycle.
Now the "Trigger Type" is what's key here...when the SECOND grid closes, it will look at this setting to decide what do next.
I have set it to MINIMUM, which means that if the FIRST grid has a minimum of 3 open trades (thus 4,5,6,7,8 will also trigger it) the SECOND grid will open another cycle. If you choose EXACT then it will only open when it's exactly 3 open trades on the FIRST grid.
This makes a huge difference, EXACT is way more conservative and you should use it when you are uncertain of what could happen with the price action. MINIMUM will reopen on anything above 3 in this case.

This second grid of course it's meant to open less trades, but it's always 3 trades later than the first, so it's already closer to a retracement than the first and it is most likely (not always) to close with less bulk than the first....in some cases it's like freebie trades....but they sure ADD UP in profit!!!

This how they look side by side:

584

I am very very very happy with this EA and I have now made a decision as to what the target is AND what the next project will be :D:D:D!!!
Once I hit 1,500 I will call it a day for this diary. I think the goal of this diary has been more than accomplished, and I feel I understand this EA very well....and I LIKE IT A LOT!!! I have not gone into all the OTHER options you can use Grid Fusion with, but I will leave that for yet another trading diary....my next plan is to put it up against one of this Forum's most popular EAs: Grid Hero!

But that's after we book those 1,500 ;)

Happy trading everyone, stay safe :)(y)

When will you start using GridSync/multiple grids in this trading diary @Smigle :unsure:?
This is really interesting, but the "big thing" about Grid Fusion is the multi-grid set up ;)
Really impressive performance so far @Smigle !
But I also would love to see the multi grid set up ;)
I am running the GridSync multi grid set up now....and it's as good as they say it is :D (y)

Really nice consistent profit, I'm liking this a lot :)

Looks like you don't have to go past resistance to close this basket...so all good I would say (y)

@Smigle What lot sequence (increase) are you using for this grid by the way?
I have an increment of 2. Depending on your pair, this can be quite aggressive, I could see a lot os cases in which an increment of 1 is more than OK :)

Wow, you are almost at 1,000 profit (y)(y)(y)!!
I'm past a 1,000 my deal @Chopper Man ;)

We have an understanding 😁🦾✌
@AlphaOmega yes we do my friend :)

Let's see how he deals with this one...10 levels so far...😬
North of 10 it can get a bit hairy, but once again....it all the depends on your money management. If you don't have enough funds, you should try smaller lot sizes and smaller increments....and yes, bigger gaps ;) Oh and yes....it had no problem with the 10 levels :)

Wow, this is really a TRADING DIARY!! There's so much detail, thanks for writing this :D!!
You are welcome @I Scream glad you are enjoying reading it as I am enjoying writing it :)....and making profit along the way ;)

Hey @Smigle how's it going with your Grid Fusion set up?
I would say things are going better than I thought @Time Trader (y) :)

Wow @Smigle I have to really compliment you on this diary (y) You have always been great a writing your diaries in this forum, but I detect a bit of an extra spark now that you are making really good profits with this EA. I love your explanations and how clear you lay out some complicated concepts....so many thanks for all your clear explanations, great screenshots (it's better than a manual sometimes), and the love you pour into your diaries....brilliant work @Smigle and thanks so much for sharing all this information with us :)

Why is this multi "grid sync" set up better than running just 2 stand alone grids :unsure:?

Smigle's Grid Fusion EA MT4 GBPUSD Forex Trading Diary

Hello again everyone😃😃😃!

I've been hearing all the chatter about Grid Fusion, and decided to give it a go :D(y) The numbers looked good, the analysis panned out, backtests all good (even though you need to understand how the settings work...not too complicated stuff, but you need to get it first), so now I am going to jack this guy up into my VPS and we'll let it run :D I have heard so many good things about this EA, and I am very excited to finally have it :D But as you know, this is not my first trading diary here, and I have been excited before...so let's see how this goes...(but I'm still very excited!!!!!!)

So let's get to it :)

This is how Grid Fusion looks:

View attachment 505

Please bear in mind that I am a total newbie with Grid Fusion!!!!!!, and even though this expert advisor really has a lot more under the hood than I will use in this first diary, I will be using the simplest possible set up....of course ;)

This is the Grid Fusion set up I will be using for this diary:
  • Stand Alone Grid
  • Start Lot Size = 0.01
  • Increments = 0.02
  • Open on new candle
  • Gap = 10
  • Direction: BUY
  • ReOpen Grid After Close = TRUE
That's it :)
This how the Grid Fusion config looks:

View attachment 506

Running this set up on GBPUSD, 5K, ECN 1:500 account.

OK everyone, let's see how this goes:D:D:D(y)(y)(y)!!
Excellent diary (y)
