  • Use Entry Confirmation: True/false of the option to use a second Matrix Arrow Indicator timeframe, in order to confirm the Working Timeframe's Matrix Arrow Indicator entry signals. For example if your Working Timeframe is M5 and your Entry Confirmation Timeframe is H1, when there is a new Matrix Arrow Indicator entry signal on the M5 timeframe, the EA will check if the Matrix Arrow Indicator entry signal on H1 timeframe is in the same direction, in order to open the appropriate buy/sell trade.

When Percentage of Average Daily Range is selected the EA uses the further down Stop Loss / Take Profit / Break Even / Trailing Stop Loss in % of ADR (Average Daily Range) levels for trading. These levels that are express in percentage of the average daily range of the instrument that is trades helps the EA in being more responsive to the changes and volatility of the market.

Video Guide: How to Setup Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 and Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 with provided set files


You can find the Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 set files and the Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 corresponding set files, along with detailed instructions and advice at the bottom of this guide.

If you want to see the same Matrix Arrows that the Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 will trade on each different symbol and timeframe, you should load the Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 corresponding set files.

Before you begin to setup your Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 and Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 on your MT4/5 terminal, make sure that you have lowered the number of max bars in MT4/5 >> Tools >> Options >> Charts >> Max Bars in Chart >> 1000 because if you have a setting of thousands or millions of max bars in chart, your Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 will be too slow, since it's calculating 10 standard indicators over all these bars and that takes a lot of time in thousands of bars.

Also check the server time of your broker in the Marketwatch window, because all Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 set files have been optimized on ICMarkets GMT+3 servers and if your broker is not GMT+3 you need to adjust the trading hours of all provided set files to fit your broker. If your broker's server time is GMT+0, you need to adjust all the trading hours 3 hours back, for example if:

Start Hour: 12

Start Minutes: 00

End Hour: 22

End Minutes: 50

you need to change it to:

Start Hour: 9

Start Minutes: 00

End Hour: 19

End Minutes: 50

Notice: If you load the Matrix Arrow Indicator MT4/5 on the chart with the default settings, you will see different arrows from those the Matrix Arrow EA MT4/5 will trade with each different symbol set file, so its advisable to load the corresponding indicator set files, as explained above.

Warning! If you plan to trade only 1 of the provided set files, you could leave the Risk % per trade to the default 5%, if you want to trade a few of the suggested set files, I suggest to lower the Risk % to 1% - 2% but if you would like to trade all set files, I strongly suggest to put the Risk % per trade to 0.5% - 1% per symbol.
