Aggressive Grid Sniper

Attention Aggressive Grid Sniper Users:
Please see our Blog post for new Setting files and updates at this link: 
https://www.mql5.com/en/blogs/post/719832


This expert advisor will open and manage trades using a fixed or incremental grid system. Default fixed grid distance is set to 50 pips while the incremental system, if set to true will adjust your grid distance according to the amount of balance in your account from 50 pips down to 10 pips in increments of 10 pips.

  • Magic Number (Set to 0 for Manual Trading with Grid) - Using this Grid with other EAs must use the same magic number.
  • Grid system On/Off
  • Incremental grid distance (50-10) - This will automatically adjust the grid distance according to the amount of balance in your account. Set this to true for a more aggressive system.
    • If you Set to true then use only one pair in one account.
    • If you Set to false can be used for multiple pairs in one account.
  • Incremental balance for grid distance - The Grid size will automatically adjust from 50 Pips down to 10 pips distance incrementally from this starting amount.
  • Money Management
    • Fixed lots - This will force lot sizes to never change.
    • Lots increment - This will adjust lot sizes incrementally by this value when a trade is losing according to grid distance settings.
  • Starting lot - This is the starting lot size that will either be fixed or incremental according to the previous setting
  • Grid distance pips - This is the distance in pips for the grid setting
  • Virtual take profit pips - This will be the virtual take profit after the trade hits the break even point
  • StopLoss options
    • SL=__% of balance - This will make the stop loss a percentage of the current account balance
    • SL == X$(Open losses) - This will make the stop loss a fixed dollar amount of the current open losses
  • Max open trades - This is the maximum number of open trades allowed
  • Open by Candles - This will open buy trades when X number of bull candles are consecutive or sell trades when X number of bear candles are consecutive.
    • Open trade is X candle close high/lower on/off
    • Open trade is X candle close high/lower
  • Open by X pips in X seconds - This will open buy trades when the speed of the price is moving up X number of pips per X number of seconds or sell trades when the speed of the price is moving down X number of pips per X number of seconds.
    • 1st 2nd and 3rd open trades when speed is moving X pips in X seconds
      • On/Off Open trades by X pips in X seconds
      • X Open points
      • X Open seconds
  • Open by MA cross MA - This will open buy trades when the first moving average crosses up through the second moving average or open sell trades when the first moving average crosses down through the second moving average.
    • 1st 2nd and 3rd open trades by MA cross MA
      • On/Off MA cross MA Open trades
      • 1st averaging period
      • 1st averaging method
      • 1st applied price
      • 2nd averaging period
      • 2nd averaging method
      • 2nd applied price

The Aggressive Grid Sniper is an outstanding EA. I own over 200 EAs, and this one is among the best. This morning (8:30am Central, USA Session), for example, I ran the EA on 7 major currency pairs. Five went into profit in the first 90 minutes, and 2 just hovered around breakeven (which is often typical... not every trade is profitable). For the trades that don't go into fairly quick profit, I examine the charts and watch for price action clues (like pin bars going against me), and also check a few common indicators, like the MACD and Double EMAs. If I think the trades *might* go against me, I remove those trades before they become a drain. On the other hand, if my examination of the charts indicates that the trades could yet go into profit, I keep the trades going. Meanwhile, I let the already-profitable trades continue to run, and make some good money. I run the EA on daily charts using the set file called "AGGRESSIVE-GRID-SNIPER--2.5--OpenByCandle--Grid150--ContinuousTrading--D1." If there comes a point where I'm happy with the level of profit, I'll close all the trades before the EA closes them. I call this the "sip the suds" strategy. Instead of trying to drink the whole root beer (holding out for maximum profit), I sometimes "sip the suds" off the top of the root beer -- that is, I take my money and run with the profit I'm happy with, before the currency pair has a chance to move against me. The Aggressive Grid Sniper gets me going in the right direction (for most of the currency pairs), and then I grab my money and run, making some very good money in the process. By the time I grab my money, 4 out of 5 trades are in very good profit, and one is in a small to medium loss. Other times, I dare to drink the whole root beer -- I just let the EA run and grab its own profits, and it does very well. Experiment to see what works best for you. Highly recommended EA.

Not enough can be said about the developer, he is always helpful , and Patient , his ideas and systems are great. If you were to buy just the one ea , it should be one of his.
