Recommendations

Screenshots of testing results on М30 or Н1 show the best financial instruments for applying the EA. However, it is also possible to trade other financial instruments and timeframes. It is possible to trade multiple financial instruments and/or timeframes simultaneously.

Trading should be performed on a VPS server with minimal latency. ECN/STP brokers with low or no commissions, tight spreads and no limits on scalping are preferable for trading. The Stop level and Freeze level should also be taken into account.

The EA is recommended for trading with market execution of trade orders.

Please test the EA in the strategy tester on a demo account before using it on a live account.

After a period of time testing ICMarkets platform, risk control is done very well, profitability is relatively stable, comprehensive look, the monthly profit rate of about 15-30%. Igor will also be careful to remind you to warn of closing EA before the important economic news releases, avoiding the risk of sudden slippage. On the whole, it's a nice EA program.

Version 4.6 - 2017.06.16
Version 4.6 introduces a number of additional risk managements features:
- Added three new input parameters responsible for automatic deletion of pending orders at the end of the day and restart on the next day, excluding Monday and Friday;
1. Daily Start Time - daily start time
2. Daily Finish Time - daily finish time (pause)
3. Use Daily Pause - use the daily finish (pause)

If 'Use Daily Pause' is disables, i.e. set to false, the EA works in the mode of the previous version 3.4.

- Manual management of pending orders using the "TRADING PAUSE" button, in case the trader decides to temporarily stop trading prior to unfavorable conditions on the market. For example, before an expected excessive volatility growth, a gap or a change of the margin conditions on the account by the broker.

Press the button to pause trading.
Release the button to resume trading.
Version 3.4 - 2017.05.26
Added the block responsible for extra security of open positions. The EA performs necessary actions leaving Journal entries marked "Safe Mode". To fully use the block, I do not recommend applying magic numbers in the EA.
