BF Smart Scalper EA

All genius things are elegantly simple. BF Smart Scalp EA is very simple, but it is based on the most proven trading principle since the markets exist – enter the market in the direction of a strong market impulse, after a reasonable correction is detected. In the core of this trading principle is our deeply encoded human psychology, which will never change. Our goal was to keep BF Smart Scalp EA as simple as possible in order to prevent the curve-fitting, which is the biggest enemy of the EA trading.

BF Smart Scalper EA Features

  • Strong, pure and simple trading logic
  • 24/5 trading, without any time restrictions – no GMT shift hassles
  • Reasonable TP and SL levels
  • Low drawdown
  • Small number of system parameters – easy optimization and no curve fitting worries.
  • Solid 18-year backtest performance
  • Multiple currency pairs support

Instructions and recommendations

You can use Auto MM=2% (low risk) up to 10% (high risk), according to the significance of your account and your risk and profit expectations.

Reasonable fixed Lot size is 0.05 on 1k account balance, or 0.5 lots on 10k account balance.

If you use multiple currency pairs, you should consider decreasing the risk accordingly.

Supported currency pairs: GBPUSD, EURUSD, USDCHF

The default settings are for GBPUSD. The robot can be used on other currency pairs, too. For other supported pairs and .set files, please check here.

You can run the EA on M1 or M15 chart – it makes no difference for the EA, as all used timeframes are hardcoded.

You can backtest and optimize the EA on M1 chart by “open price only” method – this will be correct enough and save you a lot of time.

Finally, please, bear in mind that Holy Grails in trading does not exist! Even the best system suffers some bad periods. BF Smart Scalp EA is using very reasonable SL levels, so they can get hit /even repeatedly/ in bad market condition. Please, do not leave negative comments after every SL hit, or losing trade!

For now very good ... I recommend .... I will update my review in a month. (I'm using the set provided by Lachezar Krastev with a lot of 0.01 to test it)

I've been in here for years, and this is my first review.. I must say, wow.. Finally an ea that's accurate, wins large trades, and loses small trades! The stop loss can say 50 pips, and the ea still only loses maybe 5 pips sometimes.. That's smart, and simply makes money.. Congratulations, and such a wonderful creation.

I have rented,bought, and tried well over 500 ea's in the past 6 years here, and this is the most impressive ea I've seen on a real money account.Thanks again..

muy buena ,seguiré probando

Hola ,continua probando el robot y cada vez me gusta mas ,pero para algunas configuraciones con TP mas amplios seria muy bueno que contásemos con un trailing stop ,seria posible esta mejora para una próxima actualización ?????

gracias y buen comercio para todos

5 stars product, it makes few trades but very well filtered and so far very profitable! The EA is also taking a good care of the position in case it goes in the wrong direction and from my observations closes it on the lowest loss possible. 5 stars for the developer as well, since he answers all the questions almost immediately! Thanks for this generous contribution Lachezar!

Thanks to the author for the opportunity but high degree of probability it will lose money over the medium to long term - 6 weeks or more. See my comments #5 and #7

Thanks a Lot for Share this free EA.

Backtest for GBPUSD and USDCHF looks well. Now i try on real Account.

I am not always so fast, but i tested your other Free EA BF Scalper EA also and he works well.

Not only one of the best free EA, i thing you could mess it easy with the most other sold Scalper EA.

Now i search for other Currencies with it.

thx thx thx
