PZ Goldfinch Scalper EA

The PZ Goldfinch Expert Advisor is a pure mathematical scalper that trades tick data aggressively. It implements a simple and universal trading strategy which can be applied to any instrument. However, it is recommended to trade only low-spread and liquid forex pairs.

  • It trades EURUSD, GBPUSD or USDJPY and most forex pairs!
  • It has four input parameters (Signal, SL, TS and TP).
  • The EA works better with tight trading parameters.
  • It makes around 85% winning trades.
  • The average profit factor is above 2.5.
  • Minimal drawdown.


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. In order to trade this EA, you need the following.

  • A good broker, with low spreads and stop levels.
  • A good Internet connection.
  • A lot of stamina.


The Expert Advisor uses tick data. Please backtest the M15 timeframe in "every tick" mode and play to find the best parameters.

It is recommended to backtest this Expert Advisor on the MetaQuotes demo account.

If your broker can handle a tight trailing stop, the performance will increase.

I tested EA on the strategy tester, where the results were amazing. I then tested it on a demo account and the results are absolutely different in the wrong sense. How do I get my money back and my seller can not sell this EA?

Another Backtest Grail. You waste my money, you waste my effort, you waste my time... karma will get you back tenfold to what you've done to me and the others who share the same fate.

Wonderful backtest results but terrible if this EA is running real.

У автора очень много похожих советников ! На тестере - отличный результат , на реальном счету - убытки !

Он просто программист, но не трейдер ! Мониторинга у него в myfxbook.com нет !

Very sorry but the back testing will give you results you can only dream of but when you come to put it into live trading it is useless.

PZ should remove this file as its clearly a false expectation of how the EA should perform.

Very sorry don't waste your time with this

Broker - Roboforex. It was showing magical results in tester, but suckes on real account. Earn 1-2$ and lose 20-30$ at the same time at 5$ lots. EUR/USD spread = 17.

I've ran this ea for about 3 months; don't even think about using it, even martingale is better. It must perform some kind of magic on the back-test because it is full on shit in practice.

Полное ...оно!

Потерял неделю на тестах, в том числе и реальных ($-70)

Параметры можете даже не тестировать, это просто пустые строчки для оболванивания населения, они никак не связаны с кодом и при изменении - ничего не меняют в результатах тестов.

Работают только 2 параметра при тестах, трейд-сигнал в настройках и ручная смена спреда в тестере - больше ни на что не реагирует советник, в том числе и на смену таймфрейма!

Одно слово: мошенник автор, только не понятно мне - зачем это ему понадобилось?!

This is great EA, but using default is loser.

Set the parameter Trade Signal above 4.0.

If You backtest this EA you will see magical results and extremly low drawdown, but when You start test it forward You will see mixed results tending into a stable loss day by day. I think this EA works only in a highly theoretical and 100 % optimal environment(constant low spread, zero slippage and enough data thickness) that doesn't exist with any broker.

Just start thinking people !! if this EA were so nice, it wouldn't be FREE.

However I really appreciate Mr Lopez's effort to give this product to us, but noone should use this on a live account.

Backtest looks good. Have some Nice trades on realaccount so far. The problem is that in the current marketconditions the price is too choppy, without big moves one way. In a market With higer volatility I think it will perform much better. I will continue to test it on 8 pairs on a small liveaccount

На ECN не учтена комиссия. Неделю торговал на демке - слив. На стандарте не гонял.

Если разработчик выпустит новую версию с учётом комиссии, возможно будет 0, но пока слив!!!
