Hi Five

Flexible, affordable and predictable Expert Advisor based on a great strategy - for both beginners and experienced traders. It is not too complex, yet not primitive. 

The strategy is based on the advantageous joint operation of 5 divergence indicators (MACD, ADX, BBands, StdDev and OBV) that are used to reconfirm each-other’s signal on the same bar, i.e. the signal for opening is triggered by two (2) or more concurrent divergences (in some instances, in combination with an additional reversal indicator HullMA). The Expert Advisor covers all known types of divergences:

  • classical divergences (entries at reversals)
  • "hidden" divergences (trend-following entries)

It features several smart filters to eliminate the influence of adverse market conditions and noise. The Expert Advisor is not a scalper, does not use Martingale and is good for any instrument. The recommended charts - M30 and higher. It has been developed in cooperation with the 'Top Gun' in MQL programming - komposter.

Special Offer

Clients who have purchase Hi-Five will get *$20 refund per set-file that produces the following results on a 5-year history:

  • profit factor: 4+
  • average annual number of trades: 25+

 *only one set-file per instrument/pair-TF(!) satisfying the above criteria will be accepted for a refund on a first-come, first-served basis. On our part, we will ensure transparency of all refunds against specific set-files.

Settings of the Expert Advisor

Available tools and features: 

  • Market Execution - allows you to open positions without SL and TP (so that the open price becomes known). The EA then modifies the open position by setting SL and TP targets according to the settings; 
  • Expert INFO - any useful textual information to be displayed on the screen;
  • Unique MagicNumber - for identification of trades;
  • StartTradeDate - specific day and time from which the optimization/testing should be performed;
  • AllowedDirection - Buy only, Sell only, or both;
  • IntraDayWorkTime - trade during desired sessions only (Asia- /Europe- /USA-). A separate indicator showing trading sessions on the chart is available upon request;
  • LotPercent - selection of 2 lot size options: (i) fixed lot size, or (ii) % of account balance;
  • Comprehensive Trailing Stop (“running knot”) - to maximize profits;
  • A comprehensive ADX filter filters out trades below ADX_Min (the market is too tight) and above ADX_Max (the market is too hot), as well as cancels all orders if incremental ADX gain on the previous bar is less than ADX_MinROST;
  • Comprehensive Support/Resistance filter using dynamic moving channels (a detailed description is provided with the Expert Advisor).

Additional Features

  • Automatic adjustment to 4 and 5-digit quotes;
  • Possibility to set up the cap on the max allowed slippage;
  • Special graphic markings for openings, closings and cancellations (indicating the reason for cancellation) for better visualization and analysis;
  • Calculation and printing of information on the average lifetime of all trades to a csv file.

Качественная машинка. Знаю точно, сам писал )

По всем торговым вопросам - к Александру, он общительный и знает свое дело.

Version 6.28 - 2016.07.22
Fixed the visualization of Alerts on the active signal (3 or more divergences).
Version 6.27 - 2016.06.30
1.) 6 new divergence indicators have been added (total number of diver-indicators 11):
- Adaptive Cyber Cycle
- Hurst
- Momentum
- AO Awsome Oscillator

2.) Search for "hidden" divergences has been fixed. Also added new Option: use "hidden" divers ONLY.

3.) Detailed information on all filters activities has been added to trading Log, including new entry: calculation of "average lifetime" of all trades (upon end of the test);

4.) Added new Log entry: "Profit-Index" calculation using a special formula which takes into account the following assessment criteria: "The number of winning trades vs. the total number of trades", "Total Profit vs. The number of winning trades", "Total loss vs. The number of losing trades".
Version 3.30 - 2014.06.10
Version v3.30 is featuring new opportunities for better performance-optimization as follows:

1. Zigzag Filter:
- cancel all Buy-orders if last/existing Zigzag ray is heading up;
- cancel all Sell-orders if last/existing Zigzag ray is heading down.

2. "Hidden" Divergences.
In order to activate more “Hidden” divers - set "EMA_Period" from 50 to 300.
Any value for "EMA_Period" above "0" will:
- cancel all Buy-orders below "EMA_Period" (deactivate regular divers), thus keeping "hidden" divers only in down-trend direction; and
- cancel all Sell-orders above "EMA_Period" (deactivate regular divers), thus keeping "hidden" divers only in up-trend direction.

3. Designated Support/Resistance section (under "Shi_Channel" name).
"Shi_Max_Distance_percent" defines allowed distance from current price to Support/Resistance:
- cancel all Buy-orders if price is closer to Resistance-line more than "Shi_Max_Distance_percent" % of actual width of S/R channel;
- cancel all Sell-orders if price is closer to Support-line more than "Shi_Max_Distance_percent" % of actual width of S/R channel.
Version 3.13 - 2014.05.19
Added "turbo-mode" - now the EA checks divergence signals to coincide on 2 bars (vs. 1 bar). As a result the total number of trades has gone up by 30-40%.
