Bobra Adept

This is a half scalping system that analyzes the market using a transmission function. The system can be scalping or not depending on the "takeprofit" and "stoploss" parameters.

This Expert Advisor is intended for trading on EURUSD, however it can work on other currency pairs. You should use timeframe M1 for trading.

You should optimize only two parameters: Seconds_to_move and TradePrice. It is sufficient to optimize Bobra Adept only once, for example, for a half year period. After that, Bobra Adept shows good results on a forward period (or backward in my case), this can be observed on the screenshots.

It was not optimized on GBPUSD as the results of testing appeared to be good without optimization.

Parameters Bobra Adept

  • UseManualLot - if it is false, the lot will be chose automatically. False on default.
  • Lot - lot, 0.1 on default.
  • Risk_for_AutomaticLot - lot is chosen automatically on the basis of the balance. The default value is 120 which is a hight risk.
  • Safe_mode - if true, this mode will allow decreasing maximal drawdown. At that, it will be possible to trade with a higher risk without being afraid for your money. I recommend to use it always, i.e. set to true.
  • Safe_coefficient - rate that is directly connected with Safe_mode, its value is used for dividing the volume of the first entry. I recommend value 4.
  • Compensation_mode - if true, then this mode will additionally increase the volume of the second entry. I recommend not using it.
  • Compensation_coefficient = 1 (max), connected with Compensation_mode, it determines volume increase for the second entry. It should suit gamblers.

The following two parameters are intended for decreasing drawdowns (currently, I cannot make any recommendation whether to use them or not):

  • second_in_SL - if true, then StopLoss will be set individually for the second entry, other entries will not be affected.
  • compen_SL - size of StopLoss for the second entry (values from 5 to 10, I recommend 5).

The following two parameters affect entering the market:

  • Seconds_to_move - 9 on default. You can changed the optimization range for the parameters as you want. This range is recommended: Start - 3, Step - 1, Stop - 20.
  • TradePrice - 5 on default. Optimization range: Start - 3, Step - 1, Stop - 20.

All the other parameters can be left unchanged. I think, they are good for trading on any currency pair.

  • TakeProfit - distance to fix profit. 22 on default.
  • StopLoss - distance to fix loss. 10 on default.
  • TrailingStop - distance at which the Stop Loss will be moved after the current price, but only if the positions is profitable. 5 on default.
  • Steptrail - step for the TrailingStop to trigger. 1 on default.

The screenshots demonstrate the parameters of Bobra Adept and the test results obtained with them. It is recommended to test this Expert Advisor with a broker that provides 5-digit quotes, or even better - with MetaQuotes-Demo.

Some Features of Bobra Adept:

  • Automatic detections of the quotes precision.
  • It considers the peculiarities of Market Execution (stop levels can be changed after opening the position).
  • It shows good results on forward periods.

Best EA on MT5 market. After many version and adjustments, this EA is the most consistent and profitable. Very safe trading with low DD and great growth.

Using it for a few days. Excellent EA, no losing trades yet. I feel you can easily earn 40% to 100% in a month.

EDIT: Some major losses recently. Dropped the rating to 2 stars. Will update it when fixed.

The burning money -70% :(

12 April 2016:

So far, so good.

I've been trading on this robot for the last week and a bit, and it's made a really nice profit (check profile for signal). It's made roughly 20% growth over the last week, and 32% growth since last week Monday (so 6 trading days).

I will update this review every couple of weeks with an update.

Some advice, to make this robot work...

1. Get a VPS. It just works better, and is worth every dollar.

2. Go with his recommended brokers (I use Activtrades).

3. Use Arnold's live parameter sets. Don't optimise them; you'll only screw it up. My results from 3/27 to 4/3 will show you why you should trust that the robot creator knows how the robot works. I lost money there, trying to optimise it to make more money.

The robot makes more money than you think. Just follow the instructions carefully, and stick with it.

I'll update again in a week's or two's time. If it is still profitable, I will update the review again, this time to 5 stars.

18 April:

The robot lost quite a bit of money since mid last week. I lost all the profits the robot made, and a bit more. Overall I'm not too worried, as I know losses will occur. However, something will have to be done to minimise the losses. I don't know how any trader could survive if you take 20%+ losses on a trading account. Dropped to 3 stars for now. Will continue to monitor and update my review. New version is apparently coming out this week, and the results looks promising.

26 April:

I stopped the robot about a week ago. I couldn't take the big losses any more. If Arnold cannot fix the big losses that this robot takes, I cannot recommend this robot. No forex trader can take 40% losses to their balance, and still expect to survive in forex. The robot is too aggressive. When you change the risk lower, it makes small profits, but the big losses eats up all the profits either way. You end up starting over and over again. Until such time as Arnold can fix the big losses that this robot takes, I cannot give this more than 1 star. Even the new version is take huge losses. So, the problem is not fixed.

I am changing my review because he seems like totaly changed his strategy. I need to congrate him because realized something is wrong, change and share it with old customers. New strategy going good. But i don't want to be prejudiced. I am giving 3 stars for now and re-evaluate it one month after.

Edit1: There was occured a problem with my broker. And my results diverged according to author's signal very badly. I will change the broker and try one month more.

I don't mind buying EA if it seems good and author or users published real account monitoring on mql5 signals. ====================

Tried the new version for 2 weeks. So far the performance is the same with Author's signal. Looking forward for next performance. =======

Update: Broker server was error, resulting bad trades. Still in communication with the broker to solve the problem.

Raphael Minato

The author contacted me to try a new version with a different implemented strategy. Will start the test today, and update my review according to the new results. Thanks you Arnold for your efforts to make a better EA. Let´s see how it performs in the next weeks.

Update: The EA is performing as good as the author´s signal. So I´m upgrading my review to 4 stars. If I see one more month a good performance, I´ll update again to 5 stars. Let´s hope the best!

Когда то я написал негативный отзыв на бобра, но теперь ситуация изменилась. Теперь сужу только по реально проделанной работе и ее результатах.

Проделан большой путь от чрезвычайно чувствительного к брокеру и качеству исполнения тикового скальпера, до действительно стабильного робота.

Брокер и качество исполнения отошли на второй план, проверено что у разных брокеров на одинаковых настройках входы практически одинаковые. Радует что тесты и результаты торговли действительно совпадают.

4/5 stars: New version of Bobra Adept could be what we are all looking for! Will update review as time goes on.


12/2/16: 5/5 stars: Amazing EA. Configurable and highly profitable. Check out my profile for signals/proof.

02/03/16: 5/5 stars... still an amazing EA.

Version 6.9 is great, EA now is easy to optimize and it keeps good profitability.

Апдейт на версию 6.9 получился отличный, советник легко оптимизируется и держит прибыльность.

Прошло уже 1.5 года с тех пор как я купил этого советника, и очень об этом жалею.

Excellent scalper for me. Using it on 2 different brokers and on two different VPS. Both with success. Big thanks to author.

2014.09.26 21:34 

Советник работает с начала июля по сегодняшний день, сделал все как посоветовал разработчик; профит не менее 5% от депозита в месяц и гарантировано в плюс. Для качественной работы действительно нужно "постелить"; кроме того, нужны волотильность и ликвидность. Большинство обучающих не рекомендуют и более того, предостерегают от торговли на новостях; советник - возможность скальпировать в эти периоды. Соглашусь с разработчиком, что профит зависит от качества исполнения ордеров брокером; зависимость от размера депозита и местонахождения брокера каждый в силах проверить сам.

five star! the EA is really good and the seller is helpful!

2014.09.11 19:10 

Я долгое время не писал отзыв на этого робота.

Робот полная параша. Поясню. Для того чтоб он работал, нужно гладко постелить.

1. Надежный и быстрый vps.

2. Брокер который не вставляет палки в колеса.

3. Подобрать настройки.

4. и еще 400 пунктов которые описывать не буду!!!!

Да простит меня Рамиль! Я положил на бобра 300 бачей! И ссаная разгоняйка, за 30 кредитов, заработала денег за все это время, больше чем бобер. (тест разгоняйки и бобра в течении 4 месяцов) Ну и зачем нам кузнец? Не, нам кузнец не нужен! В топку бобров!!!!! Всех!!!! Не, Я на самом деле в шоке. Кто эти 12 человек которые поставили 5 баллов? ВОТ ЭТОТ ЧЕЛ Michael Vilner МНЕ ПОРЕКОМЕНДОВАЛ БОБРА, А ПОТОМ СКАЗАЛ, ЧТО ПЕРЕСТАЛ ИМ ПОЛЬЗОВАТЬСЯ И ПРЕДСТАВИЛ СВОЙ ПРОДУКТ! Не ну это нормально?!Не видитесь!!!!

This EA is not compatible with brokers, any, and often brokers keep your money with this EA without your decision.

Very good EA. There is nothing to worry about because it has really small DD and huge profits. Just be patient and everything is gonna be fine. Recommended to all who cares about the money and do not want to risk a lot.

Arnol is very helpful person, naturally he answers as fast as possible. He shares all his ideas. There is nothing better you can imagine on the market at this moment.

The Bobra Adept is an Excellent Expert Advisor, I made more than 380% of profit in November, in December I have more than 11%, with a Relative drawdown of only 5% and equity drawdown of 0.83% . Arnold provide a very good support, he reply our question very quickly.

I use Bobra adept since the middle of November. The EA uses great movements. There are small losses and big profits. With positive results overall. I am on the way to find the best settings. I have used the recommendations of the seller to this day and the EA obtains profits with that overall.

In addition, the support is excellent by Arnold and he always responds very fast to all questions.
