The name of the financial instrument on the accounts of the provider and receiver may differ in prefixes of suffixes. However, the names must match in the input parameters of the EA.

The EA automatically calculates and places the TakeProfit level. Step and TralingStop are used at Duration in minutes, and they can be equal to each other. TralingStop is desabled if Step is zero.

During the setup of the EA on the provider account only the first and the seventh input parameters are considered.


Limitations

The EA cannot be tested in the MetaTrader 4 Strategy Tester.


Recommendations

It is recommended to use the EA on the six major financial instruments: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF. The possibility of using the EA on other symbols as well as CFD is not excluded.

It is recommended to get positive results on a demo account before using the EA on a real account. Trading must be performed on a VPS server with minimum delay to the provider and receiver accounts. It is recommended to choose a broker with the minimum execution commissions or without them at all, and with tight spreads that allow unlimited scalping.
