You should not be fooled by the low price – GOLD Scalper Pro is a very effective and profitable trading strategy, professionally developed especially for trading GOLD (XAUUSD).
I have used the most proven trading principle since the markets exist – namely a position entry in the direction of a distinctive market impulse and a following correction. This principle has been proven rock solid since the markets exist and it has been widely exploited by the “Smart Money” traders. I know this, because I have used this trading pattern more than 15 years in a different way in many trading systems and it just does not fail.
GOLD Scalper Pro is not just another curve fitted system with a hundred parameters. On the contrary - the trading logic is so strong and reliable, so it needs a few parameters to be profitable.
GOLD Scalper Pro is not a grid, martingale, or other risky strategy – it is a classical trading strategy by a textbook, which uses reasonable Stop Loss levels and an effective entry and exit trading logic.
Here are the key features, which make GOLD Scalper Pro a very good trading system:
- Strong, pure and simple trading logic
- Highly effective exit algorithm
- 24/5 trading, without any time restrictions – no GMT shift hassles
- Reasonable TP and SL levels - plus optional ATR based algorithm
- Low drawdown
- Solid 14-year backtest performance
- In addition, I have performed 99.9% quality Real Tick and Real Spread backtests, which prove that GOLD Scalper Pro is profitable under real market conditions.
As well GOLD Scalper Pro, is equipped with many PRO features like:
- Advanced News Filter
- Stealth mode
- Advanced Time Management System
- Email and Push Notification system
- Friday Exit System
GOLD Scalper PRO comes with Money Management System. You can set a risk in percents and the robot will automatically calculate the lots according the risk and your account free margin.
Advanced News Filter
GOLD Scalper PRO is equipped with Advanced News Filter. Thanks to this filter you can avoid trading during most important news and events. The news filter can increase the profit factor of the system and reduce the drawdown. It is disabled by default. If you want to use it you have to enable it and configure it precisely.
Configure MT4 terminal to allow WEB Requests to the following url: http://www.fxautomater.com You can find it in: MT4 terminal -> Tools -> Options -> Expert Advisors -> Allow WebRequests for listed URL (check the image below):
This is very important! This is the only way the News Filter to work properly. The information for the coming News and Events is on my website and you have to give a permission to the MT4 terminal to allow connections to my website.
Advanced Time Management System
With the Time Management System you can precisely configure the robot to trade only during specific hours. You can also configure the robot to trade or not on individual week days. This is a very powerful option which will let you avoid the most dangerous periods.
Friday Exit System
We all know that sometimes it could be risky to trade on Friday because the trades may remain during the weekend and may be closed on big loss due to Monday gaps. GOLD Scalper PRO has a Friday Exit system and you can configure the robot to close all trades on Friday Evening at a desired time and to stop trading after this time.
E-mail and Push Notification System
GOLD Scalper PRO will inform you about all actions performed in your account. It easy to set-up your terminal to receive these notifications. GOLD Scalper PRO can send email and push notifications to your mobile phone and inform you about its trades. By default these options are disabled. Please read below GOLD Scalper PRO Settings to learn how to enable Email and Push notifications.
GOLD Scalper PRO comes with Manual Trading system which allow you to open manual trades which will be managed automatically by the robot. The robot print two buttons on the chart BUY and SELL. If you click the BUY button the robot will open a BUY trade. If you click the SELL button the robot will open a SELL trade. The best thing is that the robot will not let you open manual trades in bad market conditions. When the buttons color is dark gray then it means that the manual trading is not allowed for BUY or SELL due to bad market conditions or there are already opened trades.
GOLD Scalper PRO is fully automatic, so you do not have to use this extra feature, if you do not want to open extra manual trades.
Instructions and recommendations
- Please, test the GOLD Scalper Pro on a demo account first in order to get familiar with all features and settings! Especially the lot size could differ between the brokers (normally it is 100 ounces per lot), so it is very important to make sure that the AutoMM function calculates the right lot size, which should be approximately 0.1 lot (10 ounces) at $10k account size and AutoMM=1. Respectively 0.01 lots with AutoMM=1 for account size $1000. For reference only, AutoMM=5 should open 0.05 lots on $1000 account balance.
- Make sure that the spread of your broker in normal conditions does not exceed 400 pips (4 cents) in XAUUSD (GOLD/USD)! You can use Auto MM=2% (low risk) up to 10% (high risk), according to the significance of your account and your risk and profit expectations.Reasonable fixed Lot size is 0.05 on 1k account balance, or 0.5 lots on 10k account balance.
You can run the EA on M1 or M15 chart – it makes no difference for the EA, as all used time-frames are hard-coded.
You can backtest and optimize the EA on M1 chart by “open price only” method – this will be correct enough and you will save a lot of time.
Finally, please, bear in mind that Holy Grail in trading does not exist! Even the best system suffers some bad periods. GOLD Scalper PRO is using very reasonable SL levels, so they can get hit /even repeatedly/ in bad market condition. Please, do not leave negative comments after every SL hit, or losing trade!

==== Time Management Settings ====
These settings have been specially developed to help traders avoid certain hour periods during the trading week when the Forex market behaves more unpredictable.
- AllowedHour_ForBacktest: this parameter is only for backtesting! It helps optimizing the Time Management system. Here is how you can use it. During the optimization set start value 0, end value 23 and the step 1. You can optimize only one day per optimization. For example you want to optimize the forbidden hours for Monday, you have to disable other days bay settings TuesdayTrading=false ... to ... FridayTrading=false. At the end of the optimization the tester will show you the best hours for trading on Monday. You can add the bad hours in the parameter MondayForbiddenHours separated by comma, for example: 1,4,6.
- MondayTrading: true/false - enable or disable trading on Monday
- MondayHoursForbidden: forbidden trading hours for Monday (applies only when MondayTrading is enabled). You can set several values between 0 and 23 separated with commas. For example, if you set MondayHoursForbidden=9,10,11 the EA will not trade from 9:00 till 11:59. The hour values for this parameter are related to your broker’s server time (the Market Watch)!
- TuesdayTrading: true/false - enable or disable trading on Tuesday

How to backtest GOLD Scalper PRO
If you wish to back-test GOLD Scalper PRO, first you should download history from the MetaTrader history center: click Tools -> History Center, or press the "F2" key of the keyboard. In the list, find the XAUUSD (GOLD) currency pair and double click to expand it. Click "1 Minute (M1)" and then click "Download". When the download process is finished, double click on "5 Minutes (M5)” and "15 Minutes (M15)" to convert the M1 data (repeat this for the rest of the time frames). Close the "History Center" window. Restart the MT4 terminal in any case. Check the below image!
To open the "Strategy Tester" window click the "Strategy Tester" button of the MetaTrader menu, or press "Ctrl+R" on the keyboard. In the "Strategy Tester" window chose GOLD Scalper PRO, chose XAUUSD currency pair, chose M15 timeframe, chose the method "Every tick ...", as shown below. Click "Start" to start the back-test.
The back-test by "Every tick" is the most precise, but it is very slow. If you wish to save time you can run the back-test on M1 timeframe by "Open price only ..." method and this will be correct too.
