Candle Shadow Advisor

Strategy of this EA is based on the assumption that the potential price movement depends on the time of day and day of the week. The EA calculates the most probable range of the price movement and rebound from the High and Low levels. If one of the price levels is achieved, the EA places a pending order (BUYSTOP or SELLSTOP). The pending orders follow the price, in order to buy or sell at the best price.


It is recommended to run the EA on the H4 or D1 timeframes only. It is also to run the EA on multiple instruments simultaneously (Recommended instruments are EURUSD, EURJPY, USDJPY. Maximum order volume - 0.01 lot per $150 when running the EA on 3 instruments simultaneously). Spread value less than 1.8 points is preferred. On average, orders on one instrument are opened once 3 days (using the default settings). The EA can be attached to any chart and used in conjunction with other trading robots.
