The Tinker

The Tinker is a scalping-based EA. It was designed for long-term traders who are not in a hurry in making money. It uses the power of Envelope to find the entry. This EA is very suitable to be used either during trending market or sideways market.

Since it is a scalping EA, each trade will be closed once the profit is "equal to a lot" for a cent account or profit "equal to lot x 100" for a standard account or profit "equal to lot x 10" for an account with lotsize of 10,000.

Recommended setting

  • Leverage = Any.
  • Currency = Any.
  • SecondOrder = Different pair will need a different value, do the optimization before use.
  • VPS hosting is recommended.
  • For a starter, try USDJPY with the SecondOrder value of 550 for a 5-digit broker or 55 for a 4-digit broker.


  • Lots - Value of lots to be used in trading.
  • SecondOrder - Number of pips for next layer of Martingale to be opened.
  • Maxrisk - This is for martingale user. Set this to limit the number of trade open. All trade will be closed after the limit was achieved.

Additional Features

  • No more trade will be open once the margin is above 70% of equity.
  • Once a number of martingale layer is equal to the Maxrisk value, EA will cut loss all open trade and will calculate the amount of loss.
  • Then, the amount lost will be divided by Maxrisk*2. Default value is 10, which mean a lot open for 10 trade after cut loss is intended to recover the loss.

Please take note that previous trading will never reflect the effectiveness of the EA. The results may vary in the future. You might score better or less depending on the market condition. Do not trade if you are using the money you cannot afford to lose.
