EA Spike

Spike missed?

The EA_Spike reacts to spike and uses the RSI indicator as filter.

The trade selection and frequency is set with Barlength, TradesperDay and the RSI.

The expert advisor is open for many underlyings and all chart periods.

It feels most comfortable in a portfolio and can run on several charts with various settings at the same time.

You will find suitable settings with the optimization.
