PZ Goldfinch Scalper EA MT5

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.
  • It is free!


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.

На реальном счете сливает, убытки измеряются долларами, а прибыл 0 или несколько центов!

Thank you for this free E.A.

Is dll calling mandatory for the Goldfinch E.A.? MQL5 VPS doesn't allow DLL calls.

Very nice work.

Can you insert a new function, that could help to increase the performance.

Maximum Position Duration Time.

I testet it with a self created script acting like a "Scalp Wrapper".

If a position is open longer than the duration time, the position will be closed with loss/profit.

According to different parameters of the TradeSignal, the duration time of position becomes a higher interest.

I tried it for several months on demo, with different settings and risk but it never gains. I'm so sad to say that, this is one of the many EAs that work only in strategy tester (but this is normal for a scalper system, remember: a scalper can't be tested on strategy tester, test it always in live)

I tried this EA in real (of course with a 1% risk)

The results are worse than the backtest, small profits and big losses

I tried to optimize and modify the parameters but the result no changes
