Thunder4WD

Currency: EURGBP

Timeframe: M5

Thunder4WD is similar to its sister EA, Your Lucky, in that it runs on the EURGBP using a M5 timeframe and trades during the Asian session. Whereas Your_Lucky places a single order at an opportune time, Thunder4WD is much more aggressive and may place several orders, often at varying levels. They are both "scalping" EAs and rely on the range-bound nature of the EURGBP during the Asian market hours.

These EAs were created by Indonesian trader Abdul Rahman. Your_Lucky was created first, followed by ThunderWD. Both have shown themselves to be quite profitable in live trading, and have gained cult status in the forex forums. Your_Lucky, dubbed "the best free EA", is still available for no cost. The latest version can be downloaded here. Thunder4WD requires a donation to be made to its creator, Mr. Rahman. He can be contacted at abdulrahman_maros [at] yahoo.com. You must negotiate the amount of the donation directly with him. (To be clear, we do not know Mr. Rahman, and he is not associated with this site in any way).

As with FAP Turbo, it is critical to run Thunder4WD and Your_Lucky on brokers which have a low spread (no more than 4) on the EURGBP during Asian hours. The time frame during which these EAs run can be modified by the user; given recent market conditions, we prefer to run the EAs from 19:00 - 23:00 GMT (3:00 p.m - 7:00 p.m. EST) only. (Both EAs, however, have been backtested using the hours of 19:00 - 01:00 GMT). Currently, we run only Thunder4WD on our real/live accounts, although in the past we have used Your_Lucky as well.

HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER-OR-OVER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED TRADING PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFIT OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN.

In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. Hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading.
