AnglerFish is one of the software products of the INTEGRAL project, where we have implemented the original scalping algorithm for trading in the foreign exchange market.

AnglerFish Expert Advisor trades inside price channels. Their amplitude and time interval are customizable.

The EA uses a number of custom indicators to determine the direction of the main trend, and waits for its retracement to make a trade in the direction of the main market trend. The main reference points are price channel borders the quotes touch during a retracement and trend continuation.

AnglerFish applies a Stop Loss order at each trade, as well as the smart system for managing trading risk that forcibly closes a losing trade if the price reverses against an open position.

You can assess AnglerFish operation on a real account using the following link: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/author/fibomen2

EA works as tested so far with excellent result.

Those that give low rating probably didn't do extensive testing and expect the EA to be always profitable. But if you did your testing, the EA will once in a while incur some drawdown. The good thing is that after sometime it will recover the losses. That's what happened in march.

Note: if you don't like big drawdown, use fixed lot or less risk in the setting

Bad risk control. This EA use a big stop loss as much as 160 pips , and it always waiting for price comeback until 160 pips stop loss was hit .Backtest with TDS is also bad results.

Last week it cause 2 big stop loss , GBPUSD has 160 pips loss and EURUSD has 60 pips in 2 orders .

I have decided to keep away from it , and I think in the near future the author will remove this signal due to bad performance because he has similar behavior on his other products.

Tested the ea in my real account 1st day made 3% and the next few day losses 20%. Like Cici0717 said the stop loss is too big and bad risk control, both GBPUSD & EURUSD last week hit the hard Stop Loss it might need more time to recover the losses. I've decided to stop the ea and hope the ea will improve the performance before i resume using it. Igot is supportive and provide good service but again result of the ea is also need to be good. 3 stars for now.
