Automated entry strategies
The EA implements over 25 automated strategies to provide some degree of automation, using many premium indicators from the site, which are embedded for use at no extra cost. You can switch between these entry stratagies as you see fit, according to what you see in the market.
The EA can also trade using a custom indicator of your development. All you need to do is adding a new buffer to your indicator, to store a trading signal as a constant for each bar: buy, sell or do nothing. The custom indicator feature is explained in detail, with examples, in the user guide.
How to properly configure the robot
To reap constant profits in the long run, you must follow the instructions below when configuring the EA. Remember to never start trading if the risk allocation the EA displays is dangerous.
- Load the EA to the chart.
- Check Risk Allocation and Max. Drawdown values from the top-right corner of the chart. The EA pre-calculates the maximum loss you can experience with the current settings and evaluates the risk profile for you.
- If the risk allocation label is red and the drawdown over 40-50%, you need to decrease the exposure of the EA.To decrease the risk allocation, perform one or more of the following measures.
- Decrease Trades per Block parameter slightly. It the risk is still high...
- Decrease Lot-Size or Spacing multiplier...
- Decrease Blocks of Trades parameter.
- The goal is to create a recovery process which uses free margin responsably and not incurring into irresponsible risks. Once the recovery risk is acceptable to you (Safe or Aggressive), start trading using the chart buttons!
- ≡ Input parameters

- Lotsize for first trade (1)
- This parameter controls the size of the initial trade. A smaller lotsize decreases the net exposure of the deal.

- Trailing Stop (3)

- Trailing Step in pips (4)
- Minimum increase in pips for the trailing stop value and, at the same time, the minimum distance from the new stoploss and the current market price. This parameter only affects the first trade, not during the recovery process.
