Day Trading EA 6.0

Metatrader Expert Advisor (MT4/MT5)

  • Overview

    This EA trades untested breakouts of variable periods when the market is orderly and behaving in a predictable fashion. It is oriented towards short-term trading and relies on the fact that volatility increases by orders of magnitude when the market reaches previously untested price levels, allowing for a quick profit or a small loss based on a time expiration. The EA performs well in orderly markets and suffers in very small timeframes or thinly traded instruments.

    • Stop-loss and take-profit levels are automatically set
