The Expert Advisor is based on Japanese candlestick patterns. Each pattern can be enabled or disabled in the EA parameters. The EA works with up to three trend indicators. Each indicator has its own parameters which can be modified. Also it's possible to enable or disable the indicators or to combine the indicators together. The best way is to use one indicator at the same time.
The indicators are needed to determine if the trend goes up or down.
The EA trades any currency pair, metals and stocks. All timeframes are supported. It is recommended that you optimize the EA on the history data of the last 2-4 weeks. Pattern recognition, trailing and breakeven parameters should be used for optimization.
The best strategy is to combine some of the patterns and the indicator together and not to use all the pattern and all the indicators on the same time.
If the Stoploss is disabled(set to 0), the EA works only with the fixed lot for safety reason.
