Swing Trade Pro

SWING TRADE PRO is a swing system based on volatility breakout. It uses strict price action for entering trades.

The EA will look for strong price movements and trend reversals, and will monitor 4 timeframes at the same time. It will place maximum 1 order on each timeframe.

Each trade will have a predefined SL and TP, but will also use various trade management techniques. One of those techniques consists of monitoring all the open trades on 4 timeframes and adjusting SL to better positions as soon as possible.

This EA does NOT use any grid, martingale or any other risky trading style.

The EA is made to be plug-and-play with a very easy setup. The EA will auto-adapt to each individual account size, and will automatically choose which pairs to run and will determine lot size based on historical drawdown periods of the selected pair. So you can start the EA on a 100$ account or 100.000$, it will automatically choose the best setup.

The EA also has the ability to randomize the trades, SL, TP and other variables, so that each user of the EA will have slightly different trades. This will ensure that even when many people use the EA on the same broker, it will not affect execution and broker manipulation will be very difficult. It also shows the robustness of the EA which doesn't need a specific set of parameters to work.


Key characteristics

  • very easy "plug-and-play" setup
  • auto-adapts to each account size
  • strict use of SL to limit risk
  • multiple trade-management techniques to improve stability
  • "Randomize" option to create hundreds of individual setups on the fly
  • Maximum 8 open trades per pair (4 for each of the 2 main strategies). Usually less.
  • Can run on brokers with 200-trade limitations without problems
  • Can handle all account types (ECN/STP/Cent/Standard accounts)
  • Can handle all brokers (including brokers that apply FIFO and NO HEDGING rules)
  • Not spread sensitive
  • No dangerous grid or martingale techniques

Parameter list

  • FIFO/No Hedging - Enable this only if your broker applies FIFO rules and don't allow hedging.
  • Virtual_Expiration - this can be used when your broker does not support an expiration date on pending orders.
  • Base_MagicNumber - this will be use as the basis for setting the EA's different MagicNumbers. The EA will use the Base_MagicNumber and will add a number. For example, when the "Base_MagicNumber=1230", The EA will make up to 16 internal Magic Numbers like this: 12301, 12302, 12303... -> 12308 and also the range 123001, 123002... -> 123008..
  • trade_comment - the 'comment' that the EA will use for all trades.
  • suffix - set the suffix that your broker might use for your pair-names.
  • Lotsize Calculation Mode - here you can choose how the EA will calculate its lot size for each pair:
    1. Use FULL AUTOMATIC MODE -> The EA will fully automatic activate the pairs that are suitable for your account size and will automatically determine the correct lot size for each of those pairs. The only thing you will need to set is the desired Risk setting in the next parameter.
    2. Use LotsizeStep -> The EA will use the LotsizeStep parameter to calculate the lot size. It works like this: Lot size = (Account Balance / LotsizeStep) X 0.01 lots. So if your account size is 10000$ and your LotsizeStep = 1000 -> the EA would use (10000$/1000) X 0.01 = 0.1 lots on that pair.
    3. Use StartLots -> The EA will simply use the lot size set in the StartLots parameter.
  • Risk Factor for FULL AUTOMATIC MODE - Here you can set the desired risk for your trading.
  • LotSizeSteps - to set the step for lot size increments (in combination with the "Use LotsizeStep" lot size calculation mode).
  • StartLots - the lot size you want to use when choosing "Use StartLots" as lot size calculation mode. It will also work as a "minimum" lot size when using another lot size calculation mode!
  • OnlyUp - when set to "true", the EA will NOT lower lot size when account balance decreases (unless the EA is restarted).
  • Percentage of Balance to be used by the EA (0-100) - what portion of your balance you want to allocate to the EA.
  • Random_Mode - here you can choose to 'randomize' various internal parameters.

Setup: You open a chart for each pair you want to run the EA on and select the lot size calculation mode. Recommended timeframe of the chart is M5.

Backtesting: 'open prices only' / 'control points' -> M5 timeframe; 'Tickdata' -> H1 timeframe!

Important: The EA needs a bit of history for each of the 4 timeframes, so make sure you downloaded some history before starting the EA!

The backtest is very powerful, but the real half a year is really a loss can not stand!The result is very bad!

Curve fitted EA - tested on real enviroment for months before realease this negative review.

Wim ,how it is possible that you can 't find a way to prevent overfitting during the creation of your EA's ?

Good signal, many options for adjustments and configurations. And above all, supreme support from the author.

Seller highly recommended!

A realistic EA with good support and long term potential.

Running on Real money account; Good, professional EA which is profitable over a long term. The support is very helpful and kindly. As the name of this EA indicates it's Swing Trading, not trading for getting '' rich over night '', but after all profitable with much lower risk.

Update 24/11/2018:

Since my last rating the EA was creating a very poor performance by reducing my accountsize around 15%. Since 5 months staying constantly unprofitable. Hoping for better times.

I'm confident for a positive long term performance. Backtests look very good. I use it in addition with my other EA's. Easy and simple setup. For now and after running a couple of weeks I will give 5 Stars. Will update after a couple of month.

Save your money

wroger 2018.06.27 20:41 

Works like a Professionell Trader, not any Week in Profit, but good for Longterm. Im in Profit now.

Alex 2018.06.17 10:07 

Currently I'm running the Swing Trade Pro EA on a demo account. Will update my review after a few weeks of trading. So far what I see on my demo

account is that V 1.4 has better results than the previous version

Update 16.07.2018: The EA is running now since 13th May. Total result -0.02% with 20% DD. Therefore just 1 Star

Update 22.07.2018: I will give the new version V1.6 a new try and will update my review in several weeks as the author contacted me due to my review and gave some explanations. This is very supportive and pro-active by the author.

Update 24.08.2018: Running V1.4 since nearly over one month. So far I have approx. 14% gain and 6% DD with medium settings. Raised from 3 to 4 stars

Lets see how it performs on longer term.

Edit: on long term the ea works great. Well done Wim.

Seems like a lot of premature commenting on this expert. This type of strategy works in the right environment. There is no doubt that it has lots of potential for success overtime. I am running on small fixed lots with other experts and it seems to work well. Using it with a conservative night trader helps endure drawdown periods.

Maybe this EA can be profitable in loooong long term, BUT there is many ways to do better manually or with other EA actuallly...

I still don't understand how this mql5 popular ranking works. A lot of these 5 stars reviews need to be updated. 10% balance gone in 3 weeks.

RedBull 2018.06.13 15:30 

Trade real account about 1 month with low risk. Loss more than 8%

I will update, if ea has a good result.

Update 13/6/2018

My account loss more than 10%. Swing Trade pro has loss everyday.

nufan 2018.06.11 14:48 

It seems like the bugs have been fixed, but unfortunately the EA is still not profitable. I will continue to keep an eye on the myfxbook page. If the EA gets profitable there, I'll do another test on a demo account.

I am giving only one star to this EA. EA has no trailing for profit positions. Profit positions weren't closed and they finish in a loss at the end. After 3 weeks of using I have only big loss. I stop using this EA. I will keep you posted if i have any updates.

danielshang 2018.06.11 02:42 

Reasons for giving two stars to this EA:

One star is for the possibility of this EA to be a great one in future, but until now it's stably losing money.

Another one star is because of the author, Wim has successfully developed other EAs like Momentum EA. I still have confidence on him of improving Swing trade pro.

I have stopped using Swing trade pro until i see good results on author's signal.

I will keep you posted if i have any updates. 2018-6-11.

VARV 2018.06.03 22:26 

The EA is useless. Whatever Wim's friends say here. My true results are terrible, only loses. I installed it on two of my MT4 accounts (because it does not work on small account) and both resulted in total loss. The developer claims that it needs several months or years running to see positive outcome. It seems like a scam to collect money and disappear. You got my warning.

Yeah, I am satisfied with the monitoring part. I have to acknowledge, I hate when people review stuff too early. But I can already see the longterm performance with this one.

I think I was one of the first to buy this EA. I put it straight on a live account and opened all symbols.

What happened? 25 losses occured. I felt eager to write some pretty angry stuff here in the comments field. I also threw a keyboard at my wall. Hate when that happens.

Then all of a sudden, the EA nailed positions with the trend for the majority of the symbols. Drawdown was quickly recovered

Then Wim opened a live account which is making the same results like my account.

99% quality tick backtest for at least 11 years: check

History of selling functional/profitable EAs: check

Helpful author: check

Original algorithm: check

Summary: A professional and stable EA for patient swingtraders

Update 2018-08-10: 50% profit since the purchase with a higher risk setting and cut some weaker pairs. Top notch

It is an EA that has a very clear structure, in whose tests it is noted that it is a very robust and stable system as mentioned, I would love to see a Forward but it looks interesting as Momenum EA

BabyPips24 2018.05.10 22:28 

Great support so far. Looking forward for updates and improvements

Amazing work! Top results on performance (Return/DD) and stability for backtests going back 15 years (all of dukascopy database) and taking all realistic considerations like:

-99.9% quality tick data.

-Real variable ECN spreads (non-capped).

-Commissions up to 8 USD per lot per round (expensive, you can get lower).

-Realistic market hours execution simulation.

-Slippages based on real ECN latency providers range (50-350 ms).

-US market hours broker on GMT+2, DST+1.

-All order types generate slippages.

-Swaps costs considered.

Besides, real forward results are consistent and profitable!
