Trend Hour

At certain times, the market has a very strong volatility on all currency pairs. During that time, some currency pairs move stronger, and some weaker. The Trend Hour EA opens a trade on the most trending currency pair at a certain time. It determines the strength of the trend on multiple currency pairs and multiple timeframes using the Alligator indicator and ADX. Usually, the strongest movements happen on the currency pairs with the dollar in the middle of the US session. It is not necessary to keep the EA activated at all times, it can be attached at the hour when the currency movements are the most suitable for trading. Also, if the hour to close the trades is set, the EA must work during that time as well.


Features

  • This is a multi-currency EA - it analyzes from 1 to 10 currency pairs simultaneously, and also analyzes the situation on multiple timeframes;
  • The EA can operate only 1 hour a day - this frees it from using a VPS or a constantly working computer;
  • No need in a large initial deposit;
  • Does not use risky trading methods, opens only 1 trade on the most trending currency pair;
  • Always sets a stop-loss to preserve the deposit;
  • Both a fixed lot and a free margin percentage are used;

Recommendations for optimization: as this is a multi-currency EA, it can not be optimized for multiple currency pairs simultaneously. But the optimization works on the selected currency pair (if the EA was supposed to open a trade on another currency pair during the test, it will simply not open it at all). Therefore, it is necessary to manually select the currency pairs (that are added to the list) one by one and check the settings. The default settings are designed for 5-digit quotes and for the GMT+3 time zone, different time zones will have different best times for opening trades.
