CrockPot

CrockPot is a fully automated multi-currency scalping trading robot.

Trading is performed by pending orders. The "Every tick based on real ticks" mode was used in testing.

It can be used on any currency pairs with small spread. Basic EA settings are configured for trading EURUSD H1. The EA uses martingale and averaging.

Each trade is protected with a Stop Loss; Take Profit is also used. Smart multilevel profit trailing allows taking the most out of every trade, while remaining in the comfort zone.

Setting Expert

By default, the Expert Advisor trades the currency pair it is attached to. But you can activate multicurrency trading.

To do this, set the howpair parameter to 2 or 3 (up to 28), i.e. the number of pairs for the EA to trade, including the current one. In this case, it is necessary to enter the currency pair names below this setting exactly as they are represented in the Market Watch (including prefixes and suffixes). For example, if the pair is denoted as EURUSD.m, specify it as such. Also, if your broker provides all pairs with an additional prefix, you can specify EURUSD, with the prefix specified in pairPrefix in the form of .m, as in the example. To do this, set pairPrefixYesNo = true.

Before using the Expert Advisor, be sure to test it in the MetaTrader 5 strategy tester, see how the settings work, select an acceptable risk level.
