Double Trader Dashboard Mode
It uses the same features of the Double Trader EA, with the Dashboard Mode giving the opportunities to
- Open trades in several different pairs from the same chart
- Apply risk management properties on the whole account to prevent opening new trades when certain levels are breached
For each pair selected to be traded it will open simultaneously a sell trade and a buy trade on the selected instrument when no trades are active and keeps repeating this process.
By opening trades in both directions, you would always have one of the two directions reaching Take Profit, securing a good profit, while the other direction would be entering the recovery mode.
Once the trade that entered in recovery mode, completes the recovery, Double Trader re-opens the trades for the process to begin again.
