Market Pulse

The Market Pulse Expert Advisor tracks volatility surges in the market. For this purpose, the EA uses built-in proprietary indicators which work directly with tick data. Therefore, you can run the Expert Advisor on any timeframe. The idea of ​​trading is to capture small movements when the market moves back to its normal state.

The detailed description of the EA operation is available at the following links: https://www.mql5.com/ru/blogs/post/694234 (in Russian) and https://www.mql5.com/en/blogs/post/694579 (in English)

Backtest results cannot be used for the optimization and evaluation of the Expert Advisor performance. The Expert Advisor uses the time value of tick arrival. This parameter cannot be obtained in the Strategy Tester. Therefore, the tick arrival time is generated randomly. In the testing mode, you can evaluate the operation of the volume increase system. This way you can assess possible risks during unfavorable periods.

The EA uses a system increasing the trading volume in case of drawdowns! There is an increased risk of significant losses! You should use the system at your own risk.


Operation Principles

  • Not dependent on a selected timeframe Works with ticks
  • The Expert Advisor avoids generation of too frequent trading signals in case of sharp volatility changes, for example after a news release
  • Flexible configuration of operation hours. A pause module, in which any time interval can be specified
  • An advanced spread filter. It filters out news releases, during which the spread is significantly increased. The filter prevents the EA from opening a deal until the spread is normalized
  • Trade volume increase system (see the detailed description for more information). The lot increase depends on the profit target and coverage percent. This approach is more flexible than using a multiplier
  • The volume increase system works simultaneously in several EA instances running on different symbols. So, multicurrency trading is executed by one Expert Advisor


Recommendations

  • A trusted broker with good order execution
  • Low spreads
  • When using the volume increase system, choose accounts with the maximum possible leverage
  • High-quality and fast VPS
