An example of operation of the averager in an Exeprt Advisor in the MetaTrader 5 terminal: Exp - TickSniper.
Example of the averaging system in our TickSniper scalperUniversal trading adviser with the averaging function The X
Note: this is not an automated trading system . It monitors your deals and averages them in case of a drawdown until you get a profit.

How it Works?
- The Expert Advisor will open a position in the same direction after the specified number of points (Distance).
- The volume of the position is calculated as the volume of the previous deal * LotsMartin.
- Also the Expert Advisor modifies the common take profit for all deals setting it as "The point of zero line of all positions of the same direction" + TakeProfit points.
- Also it can modify the stop loss of all positions (if TrailingStopUSE = true) if the price breaks through the level "The point of zero line of all positions of the same direction" and goes behind it for TrailingStop points.
- The inputs parameters of the Expert Advisor include MaxOrders - the maximum number of deals for averaging.
The Expert Advisor works on the currency pair to which chart it is attached. For example, to turn on the averaging for EURUSD, open the EURUSD chart and run the Expert Advisor.
- MaxOrdersOpen - the maximum number of opened orders, 0 - unlimited.
- TakeProfitALL - total take profit for modification.
- AllTradeTrail - Allow modification of trailing stop\breakeven\take profit for all trades, including the ones opened by user. On the given currency pair.

Added information labels to the chart:
When activated ShowInfoAverager = to true, you will see the following information:
1. Average = Display the average (zero) line from positions of the same direction. If you move to a label, then there will be additional information about the calculation of the average line!
2. Next Average = Display the next averaging position, which will be open in this direction. If you move to a label, then there will be additional information about the distance!
3. Next Additional = Display the next position of additional opening, which will be open in this direction.
- Added custom lot parameters in xx.xx, yy.yy, zz.zz format
You can specify:
LotDifferent - lots separated by comma for averaging;
ADDITIONALLotDifferent - lots separated by commas for additional opening;
DistanceDifferent / ADDITIONALDistanceDifferent: Distance of new positions of averaging (against the trend) or additional opening (to the trend), separated by commas!
You can specify distance values in the format xx, yy, zz, aa
xx - Distance in points for opening the first position of averaging / additional opening;
yy - distance in points for opening the second position of averaging / additional opening;
zz - Distance in points for opening the third position of averaging / additional opening;
aa - Distance in points for opening the fourth and other positions of averaging / additional opening;
You can set any number of distances.
MagicNumber Magic number of positions (transactions) for tracking and accounting.
MagicNumber Magic numbers can be specified separated by commas:
🔘 0 - orders opened manually;
🔘 123,345,147 - all positions with MagicNumber numbers 123,345,147;
🔘 -1 - all MagicNumber, without exception.
🆕 - Added new variables:
🆕 CloseAveragingAfterCloseMainDeals - Close averaging positions (open against the trend) when the main positions are closed.
The function will close the averaging positions only when all the main positions (according to the current symbol and magic number) are closed!

DistanceAdditionalPoint / ADDITIONALDistanceAdditionalPoint - additional points to calculate the distance.
If DistanceAdditionalPoint = 5, then 5 points are added to each following distance.
DistanceMax / ADDITIONALDistanceMax - The maximum number of points in the distance.
If, when calculating the distance, the obtained value is higher than DistanceMax, then the Expert Advisor takes the value DistanceMax.
- Updated the operation of averaging;
- Updated the commission calculation algorithm;
- Added separate stop loss/take profit;
