MA Trend Catcher

MA Trend Catcher is an Expert Advisor based on two moving average indicators. It works in two modes. In aggressive mode, EA will place orders in every second depend on MA direction. While aggressive mode turned off, EA will only place orders during MA crossing or price pullback from MA. All orders are sent using pending order buy or sell.

This EA does not use dangerous techniques like martingale, averaging, or hedging. It is available for all pairs, also can be set on any time frames. It is recommended to use a broker with 5-digit quotes, low spread and low commissions.

I rented this EA and I wasted $30 basically. All it does is place pending orders and deletes them after few seconds. Once a week it will enter a trade and lose it. I tried both modes of the EA with the same pretty much result. I highly don't recommend this EA since I am 100% convinced that in its current form it is not market ready and it will only lose money. Forget the backtest -- placed live this EA is a very poor performer.
