Grid King LITE MT5

Grid King LITE is a budget friendly version of the popular Grid King EA, specially made for those traders that try to find an affordable, high performance EA.

The LITE version takes ones of the best performing setups from the original and has almost no parameters to set, which makes it a very easy plug-and-play setup.  

If you already own the original Grid King EA, you do NOT need this EA.


Live results so far:  https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/619924


NOTICE:

  • To properly backtest the full potential of this EA, you can run the test with the MT5 version, since only MT5 can do multi-currency pair backtests!
  • MT4 can only do single pair backtests, so you need to run all backtests for each pair seperate.


Grid King LITE is a grid system which can trade 29 currency pairs from a single chart.  The EA is loaded with safety features, including, but not limited to:

- Currency-pair correlation filter

- Spread Equalizer Algorithm

- Trailing TP Risk Minimization

- Max Loss safety system

- etc....


This EA can run on accountsizes starting from 2000$, though I would recommend a 3000$ account to trade more safely. 

I recommend using cent-accounts if you have a balance lower than 2000$.

Leverage of 1:100 or better is highly recommended.  MT5 account-type MUST allowed hedging. (so NO "netting" account)

The EA will monitor 29 pairs and trade price-breakouts and reversals.  It will use a clever grid algorithm for safe-landing trades when market turns against them.

If a grid should become too big, the EA will hedge the grid and slowly break it down.


SETUP:

  • Make sure all pairs are visible in the Marketwatch window, and have "some" history for H1
  • Open a EURUSD H1 chart
  • Launch the EA to that chart
  • If your broker uses a suffix, don't forget to add it to the parameter "suffix"
  • Select the pairs you which to run (running all is recommended) 
  • Set the desired risk mode


Key Characteristics:

  • Minimum starting capital: 1500$ (though 3000$ is recommended)
  • very stable growth curve as result of smart averaging techniques
  • "safety first" approach in development
  • ONLY grid-system on the market that passes   18 years of stress-tests on historical data on   multiple pairs
  • fully automatic
  • Not sensitive to spread, commission, or account type, but ofcourse a low spread ECN broker will work better and is recommended!
  • 29 Optimized pairs: EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY, EURJPY, GBPJPY, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, EURAUD, EURCAD, EURGBP, AUDNZD, EURCHF, AUDCAD, AUDJPY, GBPCHF, AUDCHF, CHFJPY, CADJPY, CADCHF, GBPCAD, NZDCAD, NZDJPY, NZDCHF, GBPNZD, EURNZD, GBPAUD and XAUUSD
  • One of a kind S.E.A. (Spread Equalizer Algorithm), which greatly improves stability for bigger spreads and slippages
  • Easy Plug-and-Play setup

Parameter overview:

  • Broker suffix: If you broker uses a suffix in the pair names, you must fill it in here (for example, if your broker uses EURUSD.pro, must must set "suffix" to ".pro", without the quotes)
  • Pairs to run: Here you can set which pairs the EA should run.  By default, it will run all 29 optimized pairs (recommended)
  • Use all pairs together in strategy tester: when enabled, the EA will run all pairs set in the "pairs to run" parameter together while doing backtests
  • Risk Mode: Here you can set the desired maximum risk for your balance, should a grid go wrong
  • StartLots: When using Manual Lotsize settings, here you can set the lotsize at which to trade (first trade of the grid)
  • Use Autolotsize: When enabled, the EA will use the LotsizeStep for lotsize calculations
  • LotsizeStep: easiest explained with an example: when lotsizeStep=5000, the EA will use 0.01lots for every 5000$ in the accountbalance.  so an accountbalance of 20000$ will trade at 0.04lots.
  • Magicnumber for strategy A
  • Magicnumber for strategy B
  • Magicnumber for hedged trades 
  • comment for the trade: comment that the trades will have
  • Infopanel Fontsize: will determine the overal size of the infopanel"
  • X_Scale_Adjustment: when using high resolution screen (like 4K), this will help getting the infopanel shown correctly (value for 4K is "1")
  • Y_Scale_Adjustment: when using high resolution screen (like 4K), this will help getting the infopanel shown correctly (value for 4K is "1")


Never forget that past performance is no guarantee for the future

I've used this EA since September 2019 and I am pleased with the performance. In September the return was 8.7%, October 16.3%, and November 10.8% using the medium risk setting. During this time the maximum equity drawdown was 17% from which it recovered nicely. It should be noted that running a backtest using the medium risk setting reveals that is possible to lose a large amount of the balance (80%) (according to my test this happened in August 2019). However, in the long run a profit was still made. Update 8 feb 2020: 2019 combined (Sep-Dec) return was 38% and YTD 12%. Update June 2020: After a bug in March which forced me to close a position (resulting in a balance DD of 20%) and more pairs being hedged than I was happy with, I would be more cautious to recommend this EA. Wim is very knowledgeable though, and provides good support for his products. I am still looking at a profit of 15% since September 2019 so I can't complain.

This EA runs excellent. I am very satisfied. I am very satisfied after 1 month run on a life account, and the support is also perfect. I started with medium lotsize step, but i reduce it now to conservative. I've made 21% profit in this month and that's incredible. Once the equity slipped to - 900€ for a few days but the price was on my side. And how Fabio just said: have some patient.

After testing without success a lot of EA's, some work in a given condition and fail explosively in others and losing a lot of money in this process; I can say that this EA is the real deal (not saying that there aren't other goods EA's, but I can say that this one was the only one I found). It can provide a steady flow of profits and recover from floating losses as an expert (pun intended). I am using it in a real account and can't recommend it enough!!! (I suggest the conservative settings, just have some patience and it will surprise you positively :)
