If you are looking for steady growth with good profits and good risk /reward ratio then Milestone EA for MT4 / MetaTrader 4 is for you!
Please note that Milestone EA is the property of trevone and main / original thread is available at codebase. Here we will try to get some free and good settings for you which you can use with this great free tool!
When using Milestone EA you should make sure that you are using a broker with low spread which should be below 2 pips. Broker must allow lowest lot size of 0.01. Recommended starting balance is between 100 and 300. First make sure you test it on DEMO account for at LEAST 1 month or longer before switching to your live account. Milestone EA should be running on 5min time-frame with recommended symbol of EURUSD and leverage of at lest 400. The above test in the graph was started with 100 USD for 1 year time frame.
Please, do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose! Recommended is that you trade with this EA only on DEMO account!
Recommended strategy is to remove profits periodically once or twice a month because sooner or later account will brake when using Martingale strategy. If you are taking out profits regularly you secure your profits.
Trading is done with three (selectable) signal types. They are all of overbought/oversold and they are all very simple signals. A is based on fast and slow moving averages/price actions, B is adx cross/price action, C is when the market has been trending a while and price action. So you can turn these on and off depending on how fast you want to trade.
Please make sure that you do different settings tests with FORWARD testing!! Forward testing (on demo account) is way more accurate then using any type of back tests with 90% or 99.9% tick history data).
