Signal subscribe is not recommended. If you want the EA, please pm to me. I’ll give you the EA for free.
(starting lot: 0.03)
FGT is a high risk and high return EA (Martingale strategy).
When I run the EA with a standard account, the profit was tens of thousand USD in a year. Next year, I crashed my account twice and lost all profit of previous year.
Original recommended settings are;
Standard account: deposit $25,000, starting lot 0.01, Max Open Order 15 (max lot size 7.21)
Cent account: deposit $2,500, starting lot 0.10, Max Open Order 15 (max lot size 72.1)
My recommendation is;
Cent account: deposit $2,000, starting lot 0.03, Max Open Order 18 (max lot size 88.54)
Cent account: deposit $2,000, starting lot 0.04, Max Open Order 17 (max lot size 73.79)
If you want lower risk;
Cent account: deposit $1,000, starting lot 0.01, Max Open Order 20 (max lot size 75.56)
I have never reached Max Open Order since I started the new settings . However, it’s very important to control the risk. I close all positions and stop the EA when a sudden rate change is expected (US Presidential election, UK referendum, X'ms holiday e.t.c.).

3. Re-start the MT4 terminal

After placing the EA, go to the Common tab and select "Only Long" option
