PZ Safety Net EA

The PZ Safety Net EA turns your losing trades into winners using a unique imbalanced hedging strategy. Once your initial trade moves into negative territory, the recovery mechanism will kick in and place a predefined number of alternative pending orders above and below the current price, all of which will be closed with a combined profit or approximately breakeven.

  • Easy to set up and supervise
  • Controllable risk and net exposure
  • Risk and drawdown are pre-calculated
  • Trade easily from the chart buttons
  • Trade micro-accounts from 1,000$
  • All you need is a VPS!

The usage and configuration of the expert advisor is very easy.

  1. Load the EA to the chart
  2. Edit the settings until the risk is acceptable
  3. Start trading using the instructed lotsize
  4. Let the EA manage the trades!

It offers a complete trade management solution, from initial trade to recovery.

  1. First, the EA tries to perform break-even and assure capital preservation.
  2. Second, the EA applies a configurable trailing stop method.
  3. If the initial trade goes right into negative, the recovery mechanism kicks in.

Things to keep in mind

  • The EA is not NFA/FIFO Compliant. Do not trade with an US Broker.
  • The EA needs just one initial trade: buy or sell. Don't buy and sell at the same time.
  • You can use pending orders to enter the market. Once the first is executed, the EA will remove all others from the chart.
  • Never start trading with a dangerous risk profile. Adjust your settings first.
  • Do not add trades manually to the deal or close them, let the EA do its job.
  • The EA will manage all trades on the chart and interfere with other EAs you are running. Be careful.
  • Open trades without stoploss or takeprofit. The EA will manage the trade.
