This is where the Ancient Armor is hidden

This is where the Ancient Armor is hidden

Stone of life Ex (S.O.L. Ex) is an Android RPG game similar to Aurum Blade. Actually the PREQUEL of the Aurum Blade, where the Villain is still a child seeking the stone of life.

This is a dungeon map walkthrough in case you missed some area or can’t find a dungeon.

I have included the secret location of the Ancient armor (see the picture) in case you can’t find one or the shop does not sell it.

Also in the picture, you will see the best ingame spells.

No need to invest (at all) in any of the other spells. They are useless or WAY too slow to cast in bad situations.

So don’t hesitate but download the game from Android Market and start slashing that weapon.

Enjoy!

Green channel MT4 system in action.

Green zone channel MT4 system in action.

I have found this system in eToro, developed by one guy using the nickname Viking1961.

This is my attempt to code an EA based on the system. It is quite straight forward and very easy to understand and follow.

The EA looks promising for really patient people. Here is the whole Detailed statement for the graph above: StrategyTesterViking1961

Pros:

  • Constant (mostly) secure profits.
  • Every position is secured with hedge.
  • Hard to take down by market moves. There are settings that actually survive the whole 2008-2009 period (WFC start).
  • Fire-and-forget. No need to watch market.

Cons:

  • Huge constant drawdown. More than 50% most of the time.
  • Much swap/interest paid on longer held positions. And I mean REALLY longer held. Like more than 1 year.
  • Takes time to build up retrievable profits due to drawdown.
  • Needs less volatile pairs to work on or wider grid.
  • Needs 2k base currency (either of EUR/USD/GBP/CHF) to start with 0.01 lots.
  • If the market leaves the normal channel (e.g. World crisis/war) the system can wipe your entire account.
  • Non NFA compliant due to hedges.
  • EU will ban hedging sooner or later. It is inevitable.

Theory behind the system.

Viking1961's system in theory.

Viking1961’s system in theory.

Not much. It is just another grid system. You can read plenty of multi-language articles on their FaceBook page.

Open one short and one long position in the start. Set NO SL and TP = Grid size. Sooner or later, the TP is hit.

Once it is hit – open another position in the same direction and another in the opposite direction (if not open already).

Keep same rules for few months patiently and you will have some withdrawable profit built up for you.

Take the profit and spend it or leave it and increase lot size so you accumulate more. EUR 2k is enough to sustain 0.01, 200 PIP grid without much risk.

Increase lot size with 0.01 for each 2k in your account.

Viking1961 developed a failsafe trick for this system called “Primers” to counter very violent moves when the market leaves you with bad conditions.

Imagine you have ten shorts and one long. Market keeps going north, without asking you if you are ready for it.

You can either open bigger long position to cover the shorts or open more long positions beside the ones opened by the EA without closing them.

Not setting TP to the primer and just moving SL to break-even and/or halfway behind your profit.

Unfortunately he haven’t told me exact rules to do this and claimed it is “common sense” and depends on the market, so I did not code them in the EA.

I have added aggressive modes to cover some bad conditions (you can enable them on demand and then disable them after the market settles down and returns to its normal pivot area).

So test and enjoy. It is quite good hedging grid method to make some money if you are really patient.

The MT4 file can be found in my GitHub account here. Feel free to alter the code and use it as you see fit. It is free.

And have in mind, that even the system’s author failed to keep the system safe @ 2013, while the GBP/USD went from 1.6300 to 1.4850 in a matter of few months. Even with all the Primers used, eToro closed many of his positions one Monday morning. He rebuilt everything in the next 1 year, but it costed him plenty. Use this system in less volatile pairs!

He is doing this system on at least 4 pairs now in his company’s PAMM account. Feel free to join them. Initial deposit is $500 for the PAMM and $10000 for the VIPs, and you can double this in one year if you are too scared to trade it yourself.

Mordor's gridder 18 months

Mordor’s gridder in 01 Jan 2013 – 20 Jul 2014 (18 months)

This is the first successful EA I coded while working my way out of past mistakes. It is completely working EA. Named it V 0.1 because I have more ideas to develop and I may build them upon this code later.

It is one of the ideas I came up while observing the behavior of other grid systems in the market. In short.

  1. Grid system. You open new positions every XX pips.
  2. Low (-ish) risk, with small profitability.
  3. Moderate draw-down.
  4. Non NFA compliant (Hedges)
  5. ECN compliant (no SL and TP is ever set, so it runs on ECN brokers, just fine)
  6. TP is not set, but a fixed amount of money for total profit is used.
  7. No stop loss, everything is hedged, so it’s not necessary.
  8. Works better in more volatile pairs.

—> You can download the code here. <—

Or get the results from the picture above –> Right from here.

I have used the following settings for those results:

  • AggresiveHedge=1;
  • GrabAndRunTarget=5;
  • InitialLots=0.01;
  • PipsPerStep=50;

Theory behind the EA.

In a trendy market or in market with large swings, you can run automated trader (like this one) to capture moves, regardless where they go.

You open both long and short positions and start adding up to shorts or longs depending on where the market goes.

If the market swings back against your already open positions, you add positions in the same direction as market, until the winners overwhelm the losers.

If too many positions are open in one direction and market swings back, you have the choice to wait until the EA balances it, or use aggressive mode 1 or 2 (1 = mild, 2 = worse than Martingale)

Provided you have $300-500 buffer for a bundle starting at 0.01 lots, this system is quite safe.

Here are 2 examples of how this looks like in live account:

Screenshot_2014-07-21-11-08-27 Screenshot_2014-07-21-11-08-59

If you don’t set too much profit to take, the EA usually takes the profit after opening 3 positions.

If you aim higher, you need to wait, until the EA opens enough winners to collect the targeted profit.

It is a Slow and steady EA, so you need to be patient.

PROs.

  • Set and forget. Provided you have enough buffer in the account – this system will work for you, while you sleep.
  • You can start working with $500 account.
  • Profit is guaranteed. Sooner or later.
  • Low or No risk on grid sizes >30 pips.

CONs.

  • You depend on trendy markets. If the market ranges – you can see the system locked between losers, waiting for a trend.
  • It is really slow system when locked with too many open positions. You may wait a week until it unlocks or use aggressive mode.
  • Quite high risk on grid sizes <25 pips due to more frequent lockouts.
  • I have written the code for 5-digit brokers. Will change it later, when I have more time to write :)

When the system goes locked badly?

It does not happen often, but you may stumble on a square formation when market is ranging, then goes wild for few quick swings and then ranges again. Like this:

Example of EA lockout.

Example of EA lockout.

When something like this happens, the EA will have 6 losers and you will need plenty of patience, until the market swings further up or down, so the EA covers the losers with winners and closes into profit.

Unfortunately, if you have a grid of 20 pips, you will need to wait for a 100-PIP swing from the EA pivot point, to cover everything.


With 3 long losers and 3 short winners, you have:

  1. Position 1 (furthest long) @ -120 PIPs.
  2. Position 2 (further long) @ -100 PIPs.
  3. Position 3 (nearest long) @ -80 PIPs.
  4. Position 4 (furthest short) @ +60 PIPs.
  5. Position 5 (closer short) @ +40 PIPs.
  6. Position 6 (closest short @ +20 PIPs.

Total losers 3, with -300 PIPs loss.

Total winners 3, with 120 PIPs profit.

To balance this, you need another short (or few shorts) which will cover all 3 losers.

Normally it will take 3+ more short winners to cover all losers (Another 60 pips move down) or one big short which will cover all losers in the next swing down.

I have coded 2 kinds of aggressive approach to this issue.

First method will open 3 x initial_lots short (in the above case). This covers most cases where the market exits from the range, but will not cover the cases where the market swings back (and opens 2 more long positions) and then returns to ranging. For this, I developed method 2.

Second method will open next position with the lot-size equal to the sum of lots on all already opened positions on the other side of the EA’s pivot.

e.g. If you have initial lots = 0.01 and turn out locked with 0.05 lots short and 0.03 lots long – next Long position opened will be with size 0.05 to cover those nasty 5 shorts opened to balance the 3 long in the example above.

If this is not right for you, feel free to change this part of the code with whatever suits you:

	orders_Total = CountOrders();
	
	if( orders_Total > 0) {
		longDelta = (currentPrice - order_maximal);
		shortDelta = (order_minimal - currentPrice);
		longPipDistance = longDelta * Normalizator;
		shortPipDistance = shortDelta * Normalizator;
		if (longPipDistance > PipsPerStep) {
			if (AggresiveHedge == 1) {lots = orders_Short * InitialLots;}
			if (AggresiveHedge == 2) {lots = lots_Short;}
			check = CreatePendingOrders(LONG, OP_BUY, Ask, lots, 0, 0, ""); 
		}
		if (shortPipDistance > PipsPerStep) {
			if (AggresiveHedge == 1) {lots = orders_Long * InitialLots;}
			if (AggresiveHedge == 2) {lots = lots_Long;}
			check = CreatePendingOrders(SHORT, OP_SELL, Bid, lots, 0, 0, "");
		}
	}
