Ilanis is and Expert Advisor for stock trading, it can be used for trading on Forex and other markets, including commodities, metals and index markets.

To determine the market entry, the EA uses the modern and ultra-light adaptive indicator FourAverage.

Principle of position maintaining is similar to that of the popular Forex robot Ilan, using averaging. But unlike Ilan, Ilanis uses an accurate entry into the market. The robot pays a lot of attention to position control, if the price goes in the expected direction. This is done by increasing the lot based on Martingale (ExpLot coefficient can be set in the settings, usually from 1.1 to 1.8).

Trading is based on the idea that 80% of time the market is moving in a flat. Long trends can be dangerous for the Expert Advisor, but they are rare. Some extraordinary events, like war, economic collapse, etc., can cause such trends. Information about these events can be found on news sites. It is advisable to turn off the EA in such cases. If this fails, through a flexible system of money management the robot is able in most cases to bring the combined position (even those open against the trend) to profit, the amount of which may considerably exceed the initially planned one. Although risks are higher in this case.

The main rule when working with Ilanis: do not be greedy, do not increase the lot, use the settings obtained after a proper optimization. Do not forget to optimize parameters for the current market from time to time.

Hello, >Good day :)

Can I use in other currencies, or only EURUSD, DO i have to find setting for other currencies, or use the EURUSD file ? Can I make a portfolio or major currencies trading ?

I've been using it for over a year and it's fantastic. Slowly my account increases without scares.

I have tried many robots and this is the one I like the most and the most profitable.


Llevo utilizándolo más de un año y es fantástico. Lentamente mi cuenta aumenta sin sustos.

He probado muchos robots y este es el más rentable.

Thank you Mikhail

Excellent expert, stable and profitable! You just need understand what he doing, Congratulation, Very good EA . I use now for few months on life account but I found it works the best on Eur/Usd

Franki112 2019.04.17 20:17 

The ILANIS works after backtests since two weeks with a life acount. It works like a colony of ants - again and again small profits but continuous -great.

Thank you.

22.03.2018 Great EA as long as You don't get greedy. Stay with 0.01 and let it run. Stable results with minor differences on different real accounts (EURUSD spreads - 6, 12 and 18; interest-swap-balance terms included). Great ability to pick up broken strategy - I tried to screw it by manually closing EA-s winning trades in the middle and yet it always found a way to close a whole pot with a nice profit (semi-automatic trading). Nice play.

EDIT 10.05.2018. If You know what You do, then GET GREEDY. Different timeframes with optimization can give unexpected results. This EA is absolutely killer if You get to know and understand it.

FINAL EDIT 09.06.2018. I love that Ilanis EA, I really do! It is like having LEGO set of FOREX market - You can create and run Your own strategy tailored to Your needs, trading habits, risk tolerance, financial boundaries etc. Also You can play safe with default settings. Super!

I'm satisfied. It is good that everyone can optimize according to their needs.

Absolutely DANGEROUS EA, This will blow any account anytime! it make small wins constantly but when the loses came you better be ready. the DRAWDOWN IS HUUUUUUGE-MUNGUS!!! you are better of spinning a coin yourself TRUST ME.

jarednoynay 2017.04.06 17:59 

Works very well if you optimize the settings for conservative drawdown for each currency pair and time frame. I now have this EA on 5 pairs on the M5 timeframe with 0.01 starting lot each.

Tscheff 2017.03.31 09:27 

Ilanis is a state of the art EA. If you purchase Ilanis you definitely don't buy a pig in the poke. Author is very supportive and his professional way of describing optimisation processes on his homepage is worth reading through. I can only recommend to follow his instructions otherwise it'll be dangerous for your balance.

Furthermore, I can only agree with previous reviews that you have to be very tolerable (holding negative positions for a couple of days!) regarding drawdowns but it will pay off one day or another! Don't be too hasty and do not close positions manually.

Currently looking for conservative settings, so hints and recommendations welcome.

boand74 2017.03.19 21:26 

Very quiet with the default settings.

With proper optimization can be very profitable.

I'm having great success with this bot. I optimized a little and my winning trades are around 98%. I've been using small lot sizes and going up slowly. This is the only bot I use for 9 different pairs, it's a definite winner

I can give 5 stars to the EA with conditions.

- Works on life account and only for EURUSD 15 min

- I'm using it with the default settings

- don't be greedy, in my case runs on VPS with 0.01 lot size for 1000 USD account and 1:200 leverage


Rule #1 - make an optimisation to avoid drawdown,

Rule #2 - be sure you can afford drawdown higher then 50%

Rule #3 - don't be greedy, see rule #2

As I received couple of questions regarding this EA, I can re-confirm my review. It works very well with the default settings on EURUSD and M15. Just don't be greedy.

Здравствуйте, оптимизировал поставил, на реал ForexClub, баланс 250, спред 25 pips, результаты впечатляют, не супер прибыль, но торгует уверенно в плюс. Жду обновлений если будут.

Обновляю свой отзыв . Хотелось бы поделиться со всеми, по поводу оптимизации данного эксперта. Оптимизируем на М15, берем период полтора года,т.е восемнадцать месяцев, баланс берем именно такой, с какого будем начинать реальную торговлю (лучше всего 300$ и больше) и очень важно правильно выбрать начальный лот, в данном случае для депозита 300 мы берем лот для оптимизации 0.03, затем проводим оптимизацию все как рекомендует автор на своем сайте, получаем результаты и выбираем верхнюю строчку по прибыли, правой кнопкой мыши щелкаем по этой строке и выбираем установить входные параметры, затем заходим в свойства эксперта и проверяем установились ли наши входные данные и теперь уменьшаем начальный лот , ставим 0.02, и начинаем тестировать , у нас 18 месяцев, и тестов будет 18, т.е первый тест будем проводить с первого месяца потом со второго и так далее, если эксперт проходит все 18 тестов успешно то эти параметры можно использовать для реальной торговли, рекомендую оставить при выборе периода оптимизации оставлять в конце месяц , чтобы потом тестировать эксперта на периоде на котором он не проходил оптимизацию, если эксперт пройдет тестирование за этот месяц успешно это будет служить дополнительным подтверждением что оптимизация прошла успешна. Оптимизацию проводим каждый месяц берем всегда полтора года. Всем удачи.
