PZ Goldfinch Scalper EA
This is the latest iteration of my famous scalper, Goldfinch EA, published for the first time almost a decade ago. It scalps the market on sudden volatility expansions that take place in short periods of time: it assumes and tries to capitalize of inertia in price movement after a sudden price acceleration. This new version has been simplified to allow the trader use the optimization feature of the tester easily to find the best trading parameters.
- Simple input parameters for easier optimization
- Customisable trade management settings
- Trading session selection
- Weekday selection
- Money management
Tick scalpers are dangerous because many factors can ruin the payoff. Variable spreads and slippage decrease the mathematical expectancy of
the trade, a low tick density from the broker can cause phantom trades, the stop level undermines your ability to secure profits and network
lag means requotes. Caution is advised.
- The Expert Advisor uses tick data only. Please backtest in "every tick" mode.
- It does not use HLOC (high - low - open - close) data at all
- The timeframe of trading is irrelevant

- Breakeven Behavior: Choose either
a) Move the SL to open price or
