TickStorm

TickStorm is the result of a 6 months team research and integrates a new approach in the art of ticks analysis.

The EA operation algorithm uses retracements velocity to decide if there is a trading opportunity or not. These retracements are spotted by analyzing several ticks matrices on different periods of time and confronting them together in order to gain an edge over the market.

We developed new tools to efficiently detect any unusual activity and we created an original and adaptive closing process that kicks in as soon as a position is opened. It also integrates our proprietary "Neutralizer Mode" in case of an erratic market movement.

The code has been heavily optimized to deliver fast execution speed despite its complexity. Check the screenshots for 99.90% modeling quality backtest results with realistic spread!

Warning: Because TickStorm works like a tick surgeon, high-quality database should be used to correctly backtest it. Keep in mind that forward testing is the best way to reveal its true potential.

TickStorm has been designed to trade GBPUSD M1, GBPJPY M1 and EURUSD M1. Set files are provided (don't use default settings).

  • Amplitude - define the sensitivity of the counter measures.
  • Iteration - numbers of up or down bars required before considering further analysis.
  • Tolerance - define the duration of the signal validity.
  • Reverse - if set to true, invert the decision process.
  • News Filter - this section is self-explanatory. For this to work, you must add this address to the allowed URLs under "Tools" → "Options" → "Expert Advisors": http://ec.forexprostools.com/.

this robot destroyed a 2500 euro account in one week. opened one lot of EURUSD and just let it run in the wrong direction until the broker closed the positions due to unsufficent margin. seller does not respond anymore. be careful, SCAM ALERT!

I am a newbie in the world of EA and i really appreciate the support and the help Edouard is giving in order to understand the use of TickStorm.

As Mr Jagger said earlier, this EA is selective about entry points, it opens trade safely after some requirements and does not open "in all directions", in my point of view this is a criteria of quality.

After a back test (with the help and explanations of Edouard on how to do it correctly), i took the 3 month rent and i am confident about the fact that this EA is going to pay for itself.

Thank you for the good job Edouard.

From time to time, I check the marketplace for promising new EAs.

Firstly, I look for EAs with detailed information in the Overview, with plausible results data, I where the Author is willing to help! Those EAs that pass this point, I then download and backtest.

Secondly, in backtesting, I want to see that I get similar results to the Author with the same setup and dates. I also check how the EA behaves on other date ranges (ones that the Author hasn't published!), with minor changes to the setup, and in different market conditions. I am looking for an EA that is not over-optimized and produces reasonable results in a wide range of Market conditions.

Thirdly, I consider the test results against the buy/rental price and ask: "Can this EA pay for itself?"

Tickstorm met these critria so I rented it for one month to do some real market forward testing.

The Author (Edouard) reached out to me to ask how things were going and quickly helped me to diagnose a problem on one account where trades were not being opened (broker stops too wide!).

Also, this EA is very selective about entry points, so you may not get trades straight away - is was about 2 days before I got my first trade on EURUSD. GBPUSD seems to trade more frequently.

It is early days to talk about long term results, but since September 8 I have green pips on EURUSD and GBPUSD, and since 1.4 was released on September 19 I also have green pips on GBPJPY. I do have a small number of trades open and in drawdown, but these seem reasonably under control compared to the profits already closed.

I have it trading on FXPro Instant (no commission - stops 10) and Alpari pro.ecn (stops 0) accounts. I do not get 100% the same trades on these accounts (I presume differences in spreads, etc.) but otherwise the EA seems consistent on the different account types.

Great support from Edouard and I am looking forward to the introduction of more trading pairs.
