Zeus Classic

The EA uses a scalping strategy combined with support and resistance levels. This Expert Advisor is intended for trading EURUSD M5.


  • LossIncrease - StopLoss counterpart;
  • ProfitIncrease - TakeProfit counterpart;
  • StopTradeLevel - the value of the balance to stop trading;
  • RangeClose - the level of the price deviation from the opening price, at which the EA starts to exit the losing trade;
  • EAMagic - EA's magic number;
  • EAMagic2 - EA's second magic number;
  • TimeToClose - time in seconds, after which the trade is considered prospectless and is closed;
  • Risk - percentage of the deposit, used for the automatic calculation of the lot.
  • AutoLot - can be set to "1" or "0". When set to "1" the EA selects the lot size for trading depending on the balance value.
  • Lots - lot size is set by user, if the value of AutoLot is "0".
  • SpreadLevel - maximum spread, at which the EA will trade.
  • TerminalGMTshift - time shift of your brokers terminal relative to GMT.
  • SummerAdjustment - adjustment for daylight saving time (used only for testing, for more accurate results). In real trading should be equal to "0".

Default settings are recommended, but you can experiment with the optimization for your broker, if you wish.

Recommended broker - any 5-digit with the spread on EURUSD less than 20.

Make sure to test the EA on your broker before the purchase!

Trading had been performed with Risk=100 for several months, now the Risk is reduced to 50.

Below are the screenshots with different levels of the Risk parameter.

I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Despite to its really promising backtest in the last 2 years and the good live signal, this EA have an huge hidden risk inside that can seriously hurt your account! Threads that rised my attention where: author doesn't allow to make backtest before 2015 (why if it was a good EA?), the author have a live signal but ot use a cent account where his maximum risk is very limited (why if it had a good EA ?). Anyway the scintific prooof is that running the EA backtest with a specific tool to deptly analize risk, i found that, even if most of the trades closed with a good profit or a very low loss, several trade had a MAE (maximum advers escursion) very huge (more than 100 pips) this means that stop loss is very far and the backtest doesn't is statically valid to rappresent a true expectation of the future at all. Then my suggestion is don't buy this EA and be carefull to evaluate authors that put in sales EA with so relevant hidden risks.
