Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended money management?

Tricky Twister performs best when trading simultaneously on two pairs, EURUSD and GBPUSD. All settings provided with EA are adjusted for deposit of $10k ($10,000) and the minimal lots size allowed by the broker of 0.01 lots (= $1000 = $0.1 per pip). If you are trading with a larger deposit, just set AutoMM to TRUE and EA will recalculate the starting lot size accordingly.

The minimal deposit to trade with Tricky Twister is

Regular $ accounts with minimal lot 0.01 (=$1000) $10,000
Cent accounts with minimal lot 0.1 (=10,000 cents = $100) $1,000
Cent accounts with minimal lot 0.01 (=1,000 cents = $10) $100

What are the recommended brokers?

Tricky Twister will work well on most brokers, 4-digits and 5-digits alike. You might wish to choose a broker with smaller spread on EURUSD and GBPUSD pairs. If your account deposit is not large enough for proper Money Management setup on a regular account, you may wish to use a cent account, which will restrict your choice of broker, as not all brokers offer cent accounts. The official live monitorings of Tricky Twister run on Forex4you.

What is the recommended leverage?

We recommend leverage 1:500, as it minimizes the marginal load on your deposit. But smaller leverages like 1:300 and 1:200 are also possible.

Is there a risk of blowing up my deposit with Tricky Twister?

Yes. Tricky Twister uses two carefully-chosen non-overlapping martingale strategies, which are very profitable but also bear risks for your deposit. The recommended Money Management setup yields the optimal performance in terms of the profit-to-risk ratio, but it does not guarantee against a blow-up. The following simple rules are highly recommended:

1? Do not put more money in trading than you can afford to lose.

2? Distribute your risks. (Never put all eggs in one basket.) Split your deposit in relatively small parts and run different EAs/ different pairs/ different settings on each of them. In this way, even if a blow-up will occur, it will not do much harm to your overall performance.
