Windrose

A fully automated trading Expert Advisor. Here: https://www.mql5.com/en/users/luka-fx/seller you can monitor how the EA trades on the Windrose_1 account.

The strategy is based on the fact that wherever the price goes, there are always corrective movements. The EA tries to profit from these movements. The first position is closed by a trailing stop - its stop-loss is trailed step by step, until the position gets closed. When the price moves against the open position, the EA opens orders for the smooth averaging of the total price of the positions, and then closes the positions with profit during corrective movements.

The EA will free you from routine manual trading and will save your nerves. You can enable trend following mode - the built-in two MAs based indicator will not let open a position against the trend direction. The indicator can be disabled for two-direction trading. The EA can manage orders opened manually.

If you have opened the wrong direction, which can happen often on the market, the EA will try to smoothly bring trades to profit even when trading against the trend! For this purpose, the EA applies three position closing algorithms, they are described in the METHOD_OF_CLOSING parameter.

The EA can trade cycles: when there are open positions, the EA trades until all positions are closed with a preset profit, after which the EA will complete operation. This will help assess trade direction and restart the EA.

After the accidental or deliberate restart of the terminal, the EA will not lose its orders, so you can trade from your home computer, switching it off on Friday and then switching it on on Monday.
