What happens if the approved magic list changes when using the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier?

One of the most powerful features of Strategy Samurai is that it outputs a list of magic numbers that can be read directly by the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier. Using this method it is possible to send your approved magic list to your live account while leaving all the strategies that did not meet your filtering criteria in your demo or incubator account.

If the approved magic list changes, which it will depending on how often you check for new trades, the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier will automatically attempt to close the positions of any magics that are no longer in the list. This is because the trade no longer appears in the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier’s heartbeat. But do not worry! It makes logical sense that we want to close those magics immediately that are no longer approved by our filters.

This is the default behavior of the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier and it cannot be changed.

If the approved magic list changes during the weekend you may see many messages from the FX Blue Personal Trade Copier. This is because it is attempting to close the trade but the market is closed. Do not worry. As soon as the market re-opens the trade will be closed.
