Hi, I'm new and I have been wondering, is there a system where there is automated trading? For example, is there a way for Metatrader to make automatatic trades when 2 Moving averages cross??? I was wondering because I'm not home for every cross, and I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I want to stick with my system but I never catch it on time when the moving averages cross.Thanks ALOT

only using SMA 21

Dear All

i always to try find the simplest system to play FOREX. i believe Holy Grail is our MONEYMANAGEMENT and DISCIPLINE.. so i found an idea, and i think it will be good with improvement and advise for all of you

okay here we go

1st. open GBPUSD 1H

2nd put SMA 21 on the chart

so the rule is... Buy when new candle open above 21 SMA

Sell when new candle open below 21 SMA

how about ranging market...? i suggest not using stop lost but we can have good idea from martiangle system... offcourse with good moneymanagement

example.. when we got BUY signal we entry with BUY 0,1 lot, but soon in next 3 candle it open below SMA 21, so we give SELL 0,15 lot.. and when it back again we can put BUY 0,2 lot...

in my observation, the maximum price ranging at sma 21 is 5 times

so we got 0,15 sell and 0,3 buy... we can put our target as $$$.. so if the target is reached, we close all, and start again

OR.. we can use higher time frame 4H

so come on guys, i think it will be great.... especially when we have EA for this system..

thx

To all successful traders

I wanted to know how the full time traders trade.

whatever system you are using if it is a manual one how long do you have to sit front of your computer or do you use alerts or what else. Please advise.

I find it hard to follow any system if it is a manual because most of the signals are generated when i am away. How to cope with this ?

thanks in advance

GBPUSD-EA-Help Please

Can someone please create an expert adviser based on the following indicater?

Buy or sell when the price crosses the blue line + 1point and spread on a daily chart. for example if it crosses to the up side at 1.9780 enter at 1.9785.

Take profit 40

Stop Loss 100

Would also like an alert of the price crossing the blue line. Thank you for your help.

High Low strategy

Hello,

I'm trying to develop an EA to do some testing to see if it is profitable or not.

The basic idea is this:

Once a daily low is made enter a long trade x pips above the daily low

Once a daily high is made enter a short trade x pips below the daily high

The idea is to make use of the daily range and trends, and that once a currency pair has travelled x pips from the high or low, it has enough momentum to keep going.

I would like to develop this EA to find out: a) whether this strategy is profitable and b) what levels x should be set to on different currency pairs

I have tried to create one, but it does not work (see attached files)

Could someone please help to fix the EA I have created OR help to create a brand new one ?

Much appreciated.

Anthony
