News Auto Trading

This is a news Expert Advisor trading by the economic calendar. It features the following working modes:

  • Manual – trader sets the news time on its own
  • Automatic – the EA takes the news release time and its importance from the news website

Several modes of customizable parameters allow the EA to conveniently adjust the EA to your trading strategy. The trading robot automatically determines the time zone, the news importance, the currency affected by the news release, displaying the news on a chart and much more. VPS server is recommended. Timeframes do not matter. The EA is launched on several low spread symbols simultaneously (for example, EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, USDJPY, USDCHF, USDCAD, NZDUSD, EURJPY, EURGBP, and EURCHF).

To let the EA work automatically, do the following:

In the terminal, open Tools ---> Options ---> Expert Advisors ---> add "http://calendar.fxstreet.com" to the "Allow WebRequest for listed URL list" field.

After that, configure the parameters to your liking.
