About Perceptron: Dr. Mark Humphrys Single-layer Neural Networks (Perceptrons)

I referred to "Artificial Intelligence" as the logic of Perceptron.

2. Algorithm

2.1. Inputs

The w1, w2, w3 and w4 are weights which set the values decided by your optimization.

```input int    x1 = 0;//weight1
input int    x2 = 0;//weight2
input int    x3 = 0;//weight3
input int    x4 = 0;//weight4
```

2.2. Perceptron

For making a simple EA, threshold is zero. And output isn't changed "fires" 1, "doesn't fire" 0.

```double w1 = x1 - 100;
double w2 = x2 - 100;
double w3 = x3 - 100;
double w4 = x4 - 100;

//Perceptron before one bar 2017/03/18

double a11 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 12,PRICE_MEDIAN,1))/100-0.5)*2;

double a21 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 36,PRICE_MEDIAN,1))/100-0.5)*2;
double a31 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 108,PRICE_MEDIAN,1))/100-0.5)*2;
double a41 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 324,PRICE_MEDIAN,1))/100-0.5)*2;
double Current_Percptron = (w1 * a11 + w2 * a21 + w3 * a31 + w4 * a41);

//Perceptron before two bar 2017/03/18

double a12 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 12,PRICE_MEDIAN,2))/100-0.5)*2;

double a22 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 36,PRICE_MEDIAN,2))/100-0.5)*2;
double a32 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 108,PRICE_MEDIAN,2))/100-0.5)*2;
double a42 = ((iRSI(Symbol(), 0, 324,PRICE_MEDIAN,2))/100-0.5)*2;
double Pre_Percptron = (w1 * a12 + w2 * a22 + w3 * a32 + w4 * a42);
```

I use RSI in this EA, but I think that other oscillators are OK. RCI, W%R and so on.

2.3.Order Opening and Closing

When previous Perceptron under 0 and current Perceptron upper 0, if there is a short position, it is closed.

And EA sends a long order.

```if(Pre_Percptron < 0 && Current_Percptron > 0) //long signal
{
//If there is a short position, send order close
if(pos < 0)
{
ret = OrderClose(Ticket, OrderLots(), OrderClosePrice(), 0);
if(ret) pos = 0; //If order close succeeds, position status is Zero
}
//If there is no position, send long order
if(pos == 0) Ticket = OrderSend(
_Symbol,              // symbol
Lots,              // volume
0,            // slippage
0,            // stop loss
0,          // take profit
MagicNumber,// magic number
0,        // pending order expiration
Green  // color
);
}```

Conversely, when current Perceptron under 0 and previous Perceptron upper 0, if there is a long position, it is closed.

And EA sends a short order.

3. Optimization

Load "Slime_Mold_RSI_template.set", and You choose "open price only" for Model.

4. Comment and Magic Number

I set Magic Number the duration used for optimization, this EA uses Magic Number in comment.

`string Trade_Comment = IntegerToString(MagicNumber,5,' ') + "Days-Optimization";`

5. Related article (in Japanese)

Open two buttons on a chart, one for closing all shorts, one for closing all longs. The buttons labels display the current total profit for each type of order.
