FXStabilizer PRO is a martingale grid system that trades on 8 different pairs. It usually enters in counter-trend direction and if the position does not hit the profit target, it enters a second position with the same lot size. If the price moves further against the position, it will double the lot size on each subsequent position.

In our backtests the EA opened up to 8 positions, which means that the last position will be 64 times the initial lot size (26 because the first two positions have the same size). The position size of all 8 positions would be 128 times the initial size. So the maximum risk is very high with this strategy and a high leverage is needed to run it.

The straight line of the equity curve in backtests of martingale systems often looks great. But as you can see from our portfolio backtest, the most recent period, which probably lies outside the optimization period, shows a much worse performance. This is often a sign of over-optimization.

Additionally, we tried to run backtests with a 28-years shift in the data, but the EA did not enter any trades. Not allowing earlier years looks suspicious, since it prevents to test for time filters, but maybe there are other reasons, which explain this behaviour.

There are a few live signals available for this trading system. Some of the signals, like the EURUSD signal, look very successful, but there were also signals that have been stopped or show a large drawdown of 80-90%. 

Our opinion

Some of the live signals look impressive. But like every martingale system the maximum loss with this EA can be very high. At least it cuts the losses at some point, so there is less risk to blow the complete account in one big movement. A longer out-of-sample period would be needed to really judge whether it is over-optimized or whether it just had a bad period. So we are planning to re-test the same version in the future. For those who are aware of the risk, but have fun in gambling with one account, we advice to only use the more consistent pairs, like EURUSD.
