      Recommendations

      1. Before using on a live account, test the EA.
      2. Use VPS or hosting server with minimal network latency to the broker's server.
      3. Low spread + low commission + high quality execution are important when choosing a broker to trade.
      4. The EA is semiautomatic - monitor the news background.
      5. In case the spread on the selected instrument regularly expands, specifying a fixed spread for the account is worth considering.

      Depending on the chosen tactics, style and TimeFrame the input parameters of the EA can vary considerably.

      Version 1.1 - 2016.06.02
      - Time filter
      - On/Off buttons for breakeven and trailing stop
      - Trailing stop based on the Parabolic Sar indicator
      - The breakeven feature conflicts neither with the normal trailing stop nor with the stop based on the Parabolic.
      I.e. the operation of breakeven and either of trailing stops can be simultaneous.
      - The orders of the EA are assigned individual Magic numbers to avoid conflicts when working with other experts.
