SFE Night Scalper

This system takes advantage of the stagnation of the market at the final of the New York session and the first hours after that close. It detects small deviations and enters in the contrary direction trying to close the operation in the level before that deviation happens. If the operation does not close with profit during the stagnation hours, the EA tries to exit in a favorable condition in the next hours, before the European session opens again.

The EA can work on M5, M15, M30, H1 timeframes, but the M5 timeframe is recommended.

Selection of the trading hours is the clue of this EA. Manage the 'open positions day hour' parameters to select these hours. In general, the last hour of the New York session and the first hour after New York has closed, are the profitable hours.

Disconnecting the related pairs in the days with major events is also recommended.

Main Features

  • FIFO compatible. Only one order at the same time is opened on each symbol. No martingale, grid, hedge techniques.
  • Can be profitable with several pairs and the correlation of the results between different pairs is very low. This means that it is profitable working with more than one pair at the same time.
  • Lightweight CPU consumer. The system only runs at the first tick of a new bar.


  • Fixed_Order_Size. Order size in lots. Used if the parameter 'FREE_BALANCE_FOR_EVERY_001_Lots' is zero.
  • Free_Balance_For_Every_001_Lots. If you set here a value > 0, for example 1000, the size of the trade will be 0.01 lots for every 1000 of free margin.
  • Autolot_Balance_Percentage. Define the percentage of your account balance to assign (0-100.0).
  • Max_Spread_pt. The EA will not open orders above this spread. Put this value in pips.
  • Start_Trade_Hour / End_Trade_Hour. At this hour (included), begins/ends the period for opening new orders (value between 0 and 23).
  • channel_period. Period used to calculate the signal channel. Values between 20 and 200 are recommended.
  • channel_size. Relative size of the signal channel. Values between 0.5 and 1.5 are recommended.
  • sl_multiplier / tp_multiplier. Multiplier applied to the SL/TP distance. Values between 0.5 and 2.0 are recommended.
  • use_waves. Select 'yes' for using the defined 'waves'. A 'wave' represents a set of parameters.
  • waves_channel_period / waves_channel_size / waves_tp_multiplier / waves_sl_multiplier. Enter the values for every wave separated by semicolon (;). The maximum number of waves is 9.

You can backtest since 2009, and you will see positive results. This EA has an advantage over the rest of EAs night scalpers and is its wide diversification, both because it works with many pairs and because each pair opens and closes as many operations as you want. Another advantage is that the TP is not 2 or 3 pips as in other similar AEs, so the spread will not affect as much

The EA is profitable with my own settings.

However be aware that if you use the author's settings, it will underperform badly compared to the results of his signal.

Ive been using this product for 2 months now, You need to know a bit about Forex, This is not just an EA that you run, You need to do alot of work before you can run it.

Well its performing nicely now and its running 24/5 currently but the EA comes with no setfiles so you need to setup and backtest everything yourself.

This is not a bad thing, If everyone is going to use this night scalper with the same settings its not going to work out on the long run so its better to have all different settings.

For me its a 5 Star, Like always the EA is top Quality and the support also top quality.

Okay.... after having being testing this on my live account for a month now. I'm ready to give this EA a 5 star... I will update my review if anything changes on my end.I start off with 0.01 lots on my live account and now I'm up to 0.04 and I'll increase the lot size to the recommended lot size as my confidence in the EA grows with time. But as of now... it's an excellent EA and gets my thumbs up!

Update: I've increase my lot size to 0.8, very good EA.
