I have been debating this for months, but today I finally did it. I put my auto trading bot live. Not only live, but fully unatended in my real money account. The bot is trading 1 ER2 contract at a time. The purpose of this thread will be two fold. #1 will be a place for me to record the bots results and get feedback on potential improvements. Also, it will give me motivation to KEEP running the bot even when it has bad loosing days. Historically the strategy has shown some severe draw downs that scared me from trading it. But everytime it proved it woudl have rebounded and made money in the long run. This here i am hoping will provide pressure to keep me turning it on everyday..... #2 will be to show that a fully auto trading strategy can be profitable. Hopefully it will provide motivation for other developers to continue their work and create good auto trading strategies. Because of my temptation to tamper with the bot's trading, I am leaving it running complety unattended. I do not want to touch it at all. I am very nervous about seeing what todays results will turn out to be. Especially considering yesterday on the sim account it lost $600..... I figured it had a bad day yesterday so the chances of a bad day again today historically has been low.... so fingers crossed.... If needed to prove that that all results are legit I can post end of day screen shots if requested.
