Let's get straight to the point.

Installation Advisor:

The Expert Advisor is installed as usual: drag from the navigator to the selected chart of the currency pair. After you have installed the adviser, a gray button will appear in the upper right corner.



The button in the upper right corner is for   display / hide information. By default, the adviser works in data transfer mode. Writes the Ask price, Bid price, the size of the spread and the arrival time of the last tick to the file.  



Install the adviser on at least 2 different brokers.

On the lagging broker (presumably), enter the number (s) of the trading account to be connected (presumably the fast broker) in the field   ACCOUNT_NUMBER _1,2,3,4,5.



If you did everything correctly, then the chart will display information that comes from connected brokers.



DEVIATION is the current price deviation.

DELAY is the delay in milliseconds.

MAXIMUM, MINIMUM - the maximum and minimum deviation.

The maximum and minimum deviation should be at least 2 times larger than the size of the current spread, and the delay should be greater than the ping to your broker.

The red and yellow buttons (by default) are used to reset statistics and align quotes, respectively.

After you have made a visual analysis, determined which quotes you will work with, you will have to set deviations, set up closing orders and allow the quotation provider to start trading, the parameter  USE_DATA_FEED_1,2,3,4,5



After you allow the advisor to trade, additional information will appear about the speed of order execution and slippage.



 

This is important information that you need to constantly monitor. To automate this process, the advisor provides protection:  

The Expert Advisor will stop losing trading if the number of unprofitable orders in a row exceeds the specified value.
If the broker uses the plugin and deliberately slows down the execution of transactions, the adviser will automatically stop trading.
The EA will automatically stop trading if the slippage is greater than the maximum value you specify.
The EA stops trading if the profit or loss is equal to the specified maximum values.
 

Options:

 

TERMINAL_SLEEP_MS   - The function allows you to reduce the speed of reading the code in the advisor, but the faster the speed of reading the code, the more powerful the server you need. Set in milliseconds, recommended value = 20.

PING_TO_SERVER_MS   - Ping to your broker in milliseconds, you can see it in the lower right corner by clicking on the icon "Connection status";



ACCOUNT_NUMBER _1,2,3,4,5 - The number of the trading account of the connected broker, you can connect up to five brokers simultaneously;

AUTO_SHIFT_BID   - Automatic alignment of quotes. If the function is enabled, the Expert Advisor will automatically equalize the quotes when the time of the last tick exceeds the value   LAST_BID_UPDATE;

SHIFT_BID _1,2,3,4,5   - If a   AUTO_SHIFT_BID = false; manual quotation alignment settings are used;

USE_DATA_FEED _1,2,3,4,5   - What data to use for trading;

CHECKING_DELAY   - Check the delay before opening a transaction. If the function is enabled, and the delay with a “-” sign, the transaction will not be executed;

TRADE_DIRECTION   - The direction of trade.   BOTH   - both Buy and Sell orders,   BUY   - only Buy orders,   SELL   - Only Sell orders;

DYNAMIC_DEVIATION   - Automatic calculation of the value at which the adviser will go into the transaction;

DEV_COEFFICIENT   - Spread ratio to calculate the dynamic indicator   DYNAMIC_DEVIATION;

MIN_DEVIATION _BUY, SELL - The minimum gap in quotes in points, at which the adviser enters the transaction. (if a   DYNAMIC_DEVIATION = false);

MAX_DELAY_TICKS   - The maximum delay in the arrival of a new tick to complete a transaction is specified in milliseconds;

MIN_OPENING_INTERVAL   - The minimum interval between the opening of new orders in milliseconds;

MAX_OPEN_ORDERS   - The maximum number of simultaneously open orders for one trading instrument;

MAX_SLIPPAGE   - Maximum slippage when opening a transaction;

COMMISSION_CONTROL   - If your broker has a transaction fee, set the COMMISSION_CONTROL flag   = true. To check the commission, the adviser will immediately open a trade with the minimum lot per symbol. Do not be scared. This will happen only once;

MAX_SPREAD   - Maximum spread when opening a transaction;

MAGIC_NUMBER   - Magic number of the transaction;

ORDER_COMMENTS   - Comments of the adviser in the order;

WHEN_PRICE_EQUAL   - The function does not allow to close an order as long as the price gap between the fast and slow supplier of quotes persists. It makes it possible to increase the profit from each transaction by 2 times compared with the standard settings. When this mode is enabled, the advisor will close the deal only when the gap of quotations returns to the normal value (the gap will disappear);

CLOSE_MODE   - Order closing mode if   WHEN_PRICE_EQUAL = true

USE_MAX_TAKEPROFIT   - Use the maximum take profit, the value is taken from the maximum / minimum price deviation;

FIX_TAKEPROFIT _BUY, SELL -   Broker invisible take profit   in points if   USE_MAX_TAKEPROFIT = false;

USE_SHIRT_STOPLOSS   - Ability to use a very short stop loss in open orders;

SL_COEFFICIENT   - The coefficient that is used to calculate a short stop loss when the mode is enabled   USE_SHIRT_STOPLOSS   = true. Formula for calculating short stop loss   = current spread * SL_COEFFICIENT;

FIX_STOPLOSS _BUY, SELL -   Invisible broker stop loss   in points if   USE_SHIRT_STOPLOSS   = false;

MAX_LOTS - Maximum lot;

LOTS_SIGNAL_POWER - Lot calculation depending on the signal strength. When this mode is enabled, the adviser evaluates the quality and strength of the signal and increases the lot when a good signal arrives with a large gap of quotations. Limit the maximum lot can be variable MAX_LOTS;

MAX_LOSS_PERCENT   - With this parameter you can control the maximum loss on the account in% of the deposit since the launch of the adviser;
