ATRA EA description & requirements
ATRA EA is based on our ATR Accelerator Indicator.
Strong Price Movements will be used as Trade entry.
ATRA EA gives you a really powerful framework to run your Trading-Strategies
· Different Exit Strategies
o Trailing Take Profit
o Exit by MA Cut
o Exit by Signal Change
· Risk & Money management
o Balance based dynamic Lot calculation
o Define your own Risk percentage of minimum free equity
o Track Long run Trades -> set new TP after a defined time
o News Filter integrated, to prevent miss trades on high news events
· Trade Options
o Classic – signal based – with or without lot multiplier
o Grid – with or without lot multiplier
o Hedging Mode (Stoploss function will be disabled, be carefully, running only with virtual TP & SL)
o Trade in both directions parallel
1. It is recommended to use an ECN broker with a low spread and VPS.
2. Use only five-digit accounts.
3. Small spread significantly increases the EA’s efficiency.
4. EA working internal with virtual TP & SL but set TP & SL on new Orders
5. If run in Hedging Mode, your broker must allow hedging and Orders without TP & SL
it is recommended to use the VPS chosen based on the closest location to
the broker to achieve the lowest possible ping, which provides better
conditions for the robot to place orders. Take your time to figure out
which Strategy is the right for you.
