Mr Lowry Pro

Mr. Lowry Pro is an automated trading system based on Scot Lowry moving average cross. This simple but effective method provides an optimal way to enter and exit the market by comparing the behavior of three moving averages, which combined with the advantages of an EA and the optimized parameters of SL and TP, results in a great automated trading tool.

Important: The default input values for the Expert Advisor are optimized with historical data for the last 18 years for EUR / JPY in Main Period of 240 minutes. When you use this EA you should be aware that the results in the past are no guarantee of success in the future and that no one but yourself is responsible for any decisions or investment you make in the market.

Tip: The EA uses only opening prices so it is not necessary to optimize each Tick, I recommend always optimizing with the open price model "Open price only" in 1M period, regardless of the "Main Period" defined in the input variables. Make sure you have complete information for all periods in the MetaTrader 4 history center.

2017.11.08 :

I don't have same backtests results as the author and contributors. Because I don't backtest with best quality and because I had it for free when it was and it seems well crafted, I wanted to give a try on demo.

I use EURJPY M15, GBPUSD H1, USDJPY M30, USDCHF H1 sets from the Google drive since october 20th (ICMarkets Demo01). It's a bit early to take conclusions but for now this is mostly (very) bad ( -320 pips).

EURJPY : 6 wins - 11 loss

GBPUSD : 0 - 3

USDCHF : 3 - 3

USDJPY : 1 - 5

Edit 2017.11.13 :

-420 pips. I'm going to stop it for the moment. I may come back on it later with other sets.
