EA Gideon

The EA Gideon is an Expert Advisor that trades ON NEWS and ON EVENTS that have a strong influence on the market, but do not occur regularly! That is the EA opens Sell Stop and Buy Stop pending orders in case of a sudden price change in any direction and closes them automatically with the profit that you wish. And we all know how often the price changes when a "successful" news appears, how far it can go up or down. Also, this robot protects your deposit by placing SL with customizable parameters.

Three strategies are built into the EA: 1) maximum, 2) normal, 3) minimum.

Each strategy can be configured individually.

Use of this EA eliminates the necessity to stay near your PC during news releases. Placing orders, opening, maintenance, closing or deleting orders — EA Gideon will do it for you.

  • This is not an autonomous expert, t is a complement to your experts.
  • The EA is optimized for the EURUSD M30. But you can configure it for any currency and timeframe.
  • It is recommended to choose ECN brokers and accounts with minimum spread.
  • VPS is required.
