Air Mechanic

The AIR MECHANIC is a software product of the "INTEGRAL" project, which implements convenient features to perform portfolio scalping with the ability to widely diversify trading risks.

The AIR MECHANIC trades one deal at a time, always uses SL that protects the trader's trade account, and never uses dangerous methods of money management, such as martingale, hedging and grid techniques.

The main idea of the EA is to provide the user with wide capabilities to compare and manage trading portfolios. With the EA AIR MECHANIC you receive the ability to:

  • Trade 12 currency pairs at the same time
  • Distribute trading risks among currency pair with low degree of correlation (for example, among - GBPUSD, EURCHF, AUDCAD etc), reducing the probability of receiving simultaneous losses
  • Diversify risks by distributing the potential losses on a specific currency among different currency pairs, thus decreasing the probability of receiving the losses (for example, the risk of receiving losses on EUR can be reduced by using currency pairs that include EUR: EURCHF, EURCAD, EURAUD, EURGBP)

IMPORTANT! By default, the EA AIR MECHANIC is configured for testing on the EURCHF currency pair, timeframe - М15 and GMT +3

Currently, the EA AIR MECHANIC is used by the "INTEGRAL" project as one of the constituent units of the "PUMPING STATION" trading portfolio: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/213123

You can also evaluate the independent operation of the EA AIR MECHANIC using this signal: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/246769

Parameters for using the EA AIR MECHANIC:

  • Timeframe for trading: M15
  • Pairs for trading: EURCAD, EURCHF, EURGBP, EURAUD, GBPUSD, GBPCHF, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, USDCHF, USDCAD, AUDCAD, AUDCHF
  • Trading time: 3-4 hours after the end of US session
  • Minimum Deposit : $100 or above
  • Recommended account type – ECN
  • VPS for 24/7 connection to the broker server

EA AIR MECHANIC complies with FIFO

The .set files for configuring the EA AIR MECHANIC can be downloaded on the monitoring page: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/246769

This EA is stable and performs well if you run: GBP/CAD, GBP/USD, EUR/CAD, EUR/AUD, EUR/GBP, EUR/USD and USD/CAD only with strategy 1. Unfortunately, it has no news filter, so you have to switch off affected pairs before high or medium impact news will be released. The function Auto_risk is hard to use. If you set Auto_risk for all pairs for instance to 3 or 4, this EA will trade with very different lot sizes. Therefore, I recommend using Fixed_Lot. If you run the pairs I mentioned above, it’s in my opinion responsible to use 0.1 lot per 1.000.

Total garbage, and the seller is extremely arrogant. My manual trading which will be provided as signal, is way better than this bot.

31/8/2017

Air Mechanic keeps losing trades, as usual, for about a month now. Based on the current market conditions, the majority of EA developers are now optimizing their EAs in order to work in similar conditions. They even started to provide the people who purchased their products with new settings and even updated versions, but the developer of this EA still insists that the EA is best and that the market itself is not good so it is the mistake of the market and not the EA.It seems that we lost the money we invested in this EA as there is no hope to receive an updated version which can last for years. in addition to that we lost more than 25% of our account balances.

18/8/2017:

The EA keeps losing trades resulting in a DD of 22% in almost two weeks. The strategy utilized failed to place a single trade with a decent profit in these two weeks, only consecutive loss trades. The entry point is not accurate and the risk/reward ratio is very high. The author has no interest to update nor to optimize the EA. I will keep updating my review weekly.

9/8/2017:

I think it is time to confess that there is something wrong with the AIR MECHANIC trading strategy and its large stop loss limit (risk to reward ratio). The overall performance of the EA during more than six months is much lower than expected. In a week we lost about 18% which indicates that there is a serious problem with both entry and exit strategies, even if the market conditions have changed. Now it is time to say that it seems that I lost the money I invested in this EA. I also lost a big money due to the utilization of it as well. My decision now is to disable it until further notice. the author needs to review the whole strategy and to accept the comments of customers as he replies to comments in a not acceptable way (refer to his comments in the comments section). He should limit losses by using a dynamic stop loss system based on support and resistance limits as well as to include a news and volatility filters in order to reduce risks. He also did not evolve the technique nor the EA since January and he always insists that his EA is perfect in its current version which completely doesn't make sense . Why not to program the EA to trade with half lots after any loss (money management) or event to stop trading for three days after reaching a DD of 5% for example. why not to utilize more indicators which help to avoid trading in these market conditions?. This version must be modified and he should include more features including news filter, more indicators, dynamic stop loss, good risk to reward ratio and money management. I also advise the author to avoid toxic pairs ( not stable pairs) such as CHF. All these losses took place when the EA traded CHF pairs in the last week.

I will keep updating my review.

4/8/2017:

The EA is promising and proved its effectiveness over a time period of three months. With regard to the losses incurred in the last week of the last month and in particular the last three days, I think that the next version of the EA should be modified to include the below.

1- A Break even exit strategy or something similar (limited martingale-hedge)to protect your investment when things go against the opened trades.

2- Automated News Filter. I think it is a must.

3- Very Important: to limit correlated currency to a maximum of 1 or 2 pairs only (to be selected by the user). For example,two USD only in addition to two CHF only, and so on. This will prevent the EA from opening 5 pairs of USD which will significantly help when the USD goes against the strategy (this will save our accounts from huge losses).

4- A safe mode(dynamic SL) based on channel exit approach in order to reduce the very large SL utilized (400 - 900 points).

5- To add a protection system that gives an error message on the chart if you applied a wrong setting file to a chart.

6- All parameters should be re-optimized to consider the current market conditions and to avoid having such a big loss (11% in three days - Risk factor=1.1 (small risk)) in the future.

I hope you could include all of these points in your next version. They are really needed.

Thank you very much.

N.B: I will update the score to 5 once the next version is released.

Update: It needs a major update ( specially for exit strategy ) after several serious drawdowns. Its not safe as before anymore. I am waiting Igor to improve the algo and reduce the risk. Until than I put 1 *

Air Mechanic.. It's safe profitable and always working with stop loss. I am getting similar results of the author's signals with my broker Tickmill. Igor is also very helpful and well organized with very good set files. Its working so good so far. I give 5*****

Igor, I have owned and used your EA for quite a while past but I didn't do a review before because I don't like to sound negative. But you would have seen in my comments over the past few weeks that this EA was destined to fail and I was waiting for you to get some kind of wake up call. Actually, coming from a 15+ years trading back ground the way to fix this EA is not too complex or difficult. Quite a few of the night trader EAs have the same problem and the solution is applicable to all of those exhibiting the roller coaster draw downs.

1. Accept that people do not like big draw downs. On a 100k+ account 10-15% is not peanuts.Btw, I switched off your EA a few weeks ago

2. The easy fix is as follows: Allow a ceiling for loss protection and introduce dynamic lot sizes. The trader dials in what % of the account he is prepared to lose. EA then keeps its original stop loss but calculates the lot size to suit the % amount that trader has specified as max amount he is prepared to lose.

3.Immediately after the trade is opened EA looks on M15 for the nearest support and resistance level and moves SL to that level. This introduces dynamic stop loss.

These not too complex changes would allow you to reduce the initial stop loss (which for now is unacceptably super large and would reduce the lot size if using loss %). Smaller and more realistic SL provides larger lot size and greater leverage and profitability. Coming off the back of that you have a dynamic stop loss which is triggered at the entry point and one that is much more realistic and based on very real market support and resistance. Better to take a small loss than burn a hole in the account

Best of both worlds - dynamic lot sizes and dynamic stop loss. Should be easy for a programmer like you :)

I have experience with a few other night traders. Air Mechanic currently shows the best entry signal. Therefore it can stand the position longer open to get more profit. Of course you will get SL as well, but it hits more often than it looses. Some pair will loose , others will compensate. It opens regularly. Good for rebate service. Air Mechanic is able to enter the market early and to leave late. Also it makes fast profits. If profit or loss is not enough it may trade long into next day. So it is kind of a hybrid taking chances late evening and into next day. Trades are almost identically to the authors signal. If things change in will update. I miss a news filter at least for USD. I will update to 5 stars if things go well within next weeks.

Update 2017/08/03 - I keep my 4 stars. Trades match the ones from vendor signal. My advice to all with higher balance accounts: reduce the risks to all pairs to 2% (maximum 4%) to protect balance. Of course true for most expert advisors in the market.

One month testing and all blown in two nights. This EA is by far not enough mature, it has not news filter or breakout detection against the trade. Also autolot is very difficult to set due every pair needs a different value to be set. I still have another month to run the EA, hope I can change my rating to a better one.

Update 1: No more chances, EA disabled. Luck for me I didn't enable EURCHF this week. So much DD in 3 days, I don't think the EA is capable of recover in the rest of month. I'm sorry for the just paid rent.

It started so very well, daily profits were small and stable, losses were reasonable. Then the EA committed suicide...

Stop losses are HUGE and although losses are not always that big, when it does finally hit the SL it normally wipes out weeks of profit.

Very disappointing as it does show promise. In my opinion it's a work in progress and it requires some additional safety features (I agree completely with Samer Gowid's review)

Ivan is a good guy, very helpful and polite and deserves success. I hope that he continues to develop and improve the EA

This EA is very bad. After one month using on IC Market ECN Account I have only loss. EA is using big SL, and today I have loss - 400 EUR and week ago -150 EUR. Onetime its huge move on EURCHF, now on CAD. what will be next? In backtest is perfomance not good as well. Author is helpfull, he is trying optimize settings every month, but what kind of EA it is? I can develop also some EA which needs to be opitmized every week but you cannot predict future based on the past and trying to optimize. EA should has some protection in built, and using great indicators. We be aware of this EA!!! The loss will come but you dont know when. I was using it whole july, almost 3 weeks i was profit in 500 EUR, I said waau, such nice EA, but then big loss. This EA is like casino, it haas nothing more. Just like cassino.

Mixed Results. Ran off Default settings at the beginning because I didn't know there were regular updates for set files

The default settings scored an impressive 17/17 trades 100% success rate.

Put on the adjusted and individual set files and loss's began to appear.

End of one month trial period author raised the price of the product but the product failed to deliver performance in line with pricing.

End of trail I was no better off than in the beginning after EURCHF and EURJPY were not handled by the EA satisfactorily.

In my opinion this has a lot of promise but fails to deliver when a loss begins.

It needs a break even exit strategy or something to protect your investment when things go south.

At $100 probably worth the money as long as you don't risk a large account.

At $449 I don't think it is worth the price by it's lack of consistency to deliver reliable results.

Советник показывает стабильную прибыль при небольшом количестве убыточных сделок. Не дает просадке расти, сам закрывает убыточную позицию. В рынке всегда стоит одной позицией по инструменту. Никаких усреднений и мартингейлов. Спокойная выдержанная работа. У брокера не возникает вопросов по работе советника.

Автору большое спасибо за отличную работу. Надеюсь, что данная стратегия будет еще долго приносить нам всем деньги.

Отличный, безопасный! советник.

Абсолютно безопасен для депозита, хотя иногда и ловит стопы (они есть, это уже хорошо), но быстро восстанавливает потери.

То есть имеем два состояния работы, это либо топтание на месте, либо рост, что в целом (долго срочно) обеспечивает рост депо.

Опять же гибкая настройка, можно поставить агрессивную торговлю и "разогнать" маленькое депо, а можно поставить на большой депозит и получать стабильно маленький процент(с минимальным риском).

Testing for two weeks now on two different live accounts with good results!

Version 1.8 - 2017.02.10
1. Added a trading algorithm for an additional strategy. Now the user can choose which strategy the EA should use: Strategy 1 or Strategy 2.
2. Manual setup has been simplified.
