Advanced Algorithmic Basket Trader

The Automated EA program is able to trade multiple currency pairs at the same time on the same account. A total of 28 currency pairs can be traded with this program. Only the Currency Pairs that are set in the Input Settings are to be traded. The strategy is based on trading currency pairs that are found to have extreme bias in overall strength between the two currencies in a pair. When one currency is strong and another currency is weak, the resulting currency pair will trade when a change of strength is detected. The program is a fully automatic program requiring no user interaction once set up on a chart of choice. The program will open trades only when a strong signal exists between currencies.  The program is able to open and close any pair as needed when specific conditions are met. The program also allows manually closing of trades if desired.

Note, to test out this program, there is a DEMO version (https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/50705) which will only trade 0.01 lot sizes and has other limitations. After testing using the DEMO version, upgrade to this Premium Version for Bigger Trades, Flexibility, and Other Adjustable Parameters.

By having multiple smaller trades open at the same time in a partially hedged formation, a user is  better protected by market fluctuations. Trade open time will vary up to days with this program. It is recommended to pick a broker with low spreads and fast execution as they will play a role in both number of trades taken and profit earned.

Due to the nature of the strategy used to trade where multiple currency pairs are traded at once, please note that this program  cannot be backtested using the strategy tester since you can only backtest one pair of data at a time. Results may vary based on broker fees and other market conditions.
