The spread and execution time are not crucial for the EA, but the accounts with low spread can have better trading results. Trades are opened according to the standard MT4 indicators. Combination of indicators allows to find the best entry points. Money management is carried out in automatic mode, the working lot is selected by the EA as a percentage of equity.

Doesn't trade very often. If it trades you have more loss than profit trades

More losses than gains ... especially if it cannot recover when high volatility and price continues without reversal. Look in comments December 14th, 2016 during FOMC.

Тестирую советник у двух разных брокеров (Admiral Markets , RoboForex) . Логика и алгоритм достаточно понятна и интересна - что то от новостного,что то от торговли на обьёмах и вспышках волатильности.

Два брокера - два разных варианта (по цене) входа , но общий результат положительный , не большая , но прибыль . Автор писал советник под EURUSD , но стоит потратить время на оптимизацию и под другие основные пары.

У меня Octopus Scalp показал очень даже интересные результаты по AUDUSD . Вообщем , советник интересный , но не машына для печатки денег .Соотношение цена качество явно в пользу советника.
