The anatomy of the strategy

According to Bill Williams trading in the zone helps to maximize profits when the market goes your way, namely, when momentum, acceleration and price confirm that you have strong trend or acceleration period.

The strategy is built up from the following indicators

  • Alligator to find strong trends
  • AC and AO to identify trading zones
  • MACD to avoid trading exhausted trends
  • Settings and Input Parameters

    When loading the EA to any chart, you will be presented with a set of options as input parameters. Don't despair if you think they are too many, because parameters are grouped into self-explanatory blocks.

    Trading Settings
    The EA can trade long, short or both.
    Indicator Settings
    This parameter group holds the indicator settings.
    Trading Settings
    You can enable or disable timeframes on which bollinger bands are evaluated. For example, if you enable M1, M5, M15 and M30, trades will be taken when the price is overbought or oversold in all those timeframes simultaneously.
    Session Settings
    Enable or disable trading for the Assian, European or American sessions.
    Position Management
    This group of settings applies to trading decisions and trade management. You can select trading direction, break-even in pips, trailing-stop in pips, trailing-step in pips, stop-loss in pip and take-profit in pips.
    Money Management
    In this settings block you can set the lotsize for the first trade, or allow the EA to calculate it by itself. I always recommend setting a manual lotsize for each trade.
    EA Settings
    You can select the magic number for the trades, custom comment and manual pip value if you need to override the one the default one. Do not change these unless you know what you are doing.
