Euro Scalper MT4
The Expert Advisor calculates the width of the trading range for the last day and evaluates the price movements (pulses) on short time intervals. If the value of a pulse exceeds a specified percentage of the trading range, it opens a position in the direction of the pulse. Pulses are also filtered using a special algorithm.
The algorithm uses explicit control of bars - trading is performed on the formed bars only. This protects the test results from errors in the tick history and increases the speed of testing and optimization as they can be run in Open prices only mode.
