I had a problem with the scripts -send pending order- finally with help and support I was able to activate it. I recommend it. thanks

Great support. Prompt and to the point. As for the indicator itself. Sure you can a use an android lot calculation app running on emulator on pc, but how labor intesive is that! "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

This indi takes all that hassle away and for me as an intraday trader getting this Risk Reward calculator was a no brainer.

Well, it can be better than what it is right now, Bought but no refund so I have to keep it even I'm not using it! I'm using my own created tool

Great Indicator. Makes risk calculating and sl/tp relation very easy and fast. I especially like that it is an indicator and not an EA. Support is very friendly if you have any questions. Highly recommended!

darius.jessup 2019.09.26 05:06 

Ive been using this tool for 7 months now and I CANNOT trade without this thing. Amazing indicator to have! This is mandatory if you ask me. My RR was terrible trying to calculate proper position sizing and RR based on my stop loss. To have a tool that does it for me is a game changer. Good stuff Janusz!! A+++++++

I really like this tool and use it for many of my trades. It should have been built-in into Metatrader, since keeping an eye on your risk/reward ratio is so important. But gladly, this low-priced indicator (along with scripts to place the trades) is here to help out. Great work.

cpratg 2019.09.05 15:05 

Powerful and simple to use, it really helps you by calculating the lot size automatically as a % of your equity or balance, using lines that you can easily move with your mouse. Makes it a lot faster to place your trades while managing your risk without the need of calculating anything, a great tool that will help you focus on trading and price action rather than doing math. Highly recommended.

This indicator is quite useful and worth the price. The indicator saves risk reward calculation time and script saves order opening time. I wish I found it years ago. Moreover seller replied my question promptly. Thanks Janusz.

I use your indicator a lot! Makes it so much easier in taking positions. I don't have to go to a website anymore to calculate lots. Thank you so much for such a useful indicator :)

Incredibly useful tool/indicator for seeing on chart monetary risk in terms of percentage and also values at modelled stop loss and take profit levels. One time purchase is also better value than other 'subscription' based RR indicators. Works on all currency pairs and instruments available in MT4/5. Great time saver and highly recommended. The developer went over and beyond in reconfiguring the executable to be able to work on my particular Mac based virtual machine version of MT4. Exceptional.

Amadeus 2018.11.20 10:56 

if you''re a serious trader then this indicator must in your list . Recommended !

Simply the best Risk Reward indicator I have used, author also updates it and adds good features

bharatw 2018.10.23 20:30 

Very happy with the indicator. It does the job of what is says and does it rather efficiently. I have requested a feature for the ability to add comments automatically when sending market or pending orders. Developer is looking into it. No regrets on this purchase.

TMath123 2018.10.04 16:32 

Great tool I'd advise anyone looking to better their trading to buy. I Have only used it for a brief time but already I can see it being massively beneficial to improving the trades I take, and mitigating high risk trades. Something I have already learnt from this tool is the fact that although a trade with high reward may seem better on the surface, it is a lot better to take a trade with low risk, and add to the lot size. 10/10

I have been using this tool for almost a year now, I haven't experienced any technical errors and it has made it easy for me in terms of allocating my risk. I recommend it 100%.

Lasplanis4 2018.08.29 00:12 

After I have been using your product from my demo account, congratulation for such a wonderful product, you did a wonderful job. It help us to stay focus and more importantly, we know exactly how much we are risking and how much we are looking to get out of it. I am sure, if your product was not good, you would have received a number of criticism for it, but because it is not a deceiving product, you ought to be congratulated for it. Again, even I had paid for your product, I don't think that I can thanks you enough for this wonderful product, keep it up, thanks.

I've tried many risk management tools and this one has to be king! Highly recommended!

twoolf 2018.08.06 18:56   

Great tool, has everything I need. Especially being able to use money based risk is very useful to me. You can quickly set TP SL and enter trades with the scripts. Have not seen anything that offers it this compact!

I have been using this tool for the last couple of weeks and I had to leave a review. It does exactly what it says on the tin and is an extremely useful tool for quickly calculating your positions based on your risk. In addition to it being a great tool, the support is also excellent based on the one time I needed to contact the developer. Thumbs up from me!

kanibus 2016.03.16 18:10 

Exelent stuff! I always kept losing my money due to bad MM. I am not really good to calculate RRR. This tool is fantastic, does the job for me. Manual beautifully explained. Worth the money.

fxice 2015.06.18 12:03
