BreakFractals

Trade strategy:

The Expert Advisor places pending orders above the high fractal and below the low fractal on the distance of "The point of creating order". When one of the orders triggers, the second is removed. Depending on the parameter "The number of orders in the series" the Expert Advisor works in two ways:

  1. "The number of orders in the series" = 1
    It is a breakthrough Expert Advisor. If the fractal broken through upwards, buy with fixed TakeProfit and StopLoss. If the fractal is broken through downwards then sell. In this case the Expert Advisor risks only with % of the deposit specified in its settings ("Percentage of risk").
  2. "The number of orders in the series" > 1
    This is the Expert Advisor with reversal orders. When one order triggers, another one is placed at StopLoss price with the other type and the increased volume (if there was a buy, a sell order is placed; in case the first order is closed by StopLoss, another sell order is instantly placed, etc.). The number of such reversals is limited by "The number of orders in the series" parameter.

When a new fractal appears, the pending order of the old fractal is removed. If the price is too close to the "The point of creating order" parameter, the pending order is not placed. The Expert Advisor includes a time filter for opening the orders.

The Expert Advisor displays messages in 5 languages (EN-English, RU-Russian, DE-German, FR-French, ES-Spanish).

Parameters ("Profit in point", "Loss in points", "The point of creating order", "Slippage") are set for 4-digit quotes. If the Expert Advisor works on a pair with 3 or 5-digit quotes, then the Expert Advisor multiplies the parameters by 10 by itself.

The Expert Advisor has flexible settings so each trader could adjust it to own work style. It has a custom optimization criterion (Custom max), which is an alternative for the standard optimization in the "Balance + min Drawdown" mode. A good solution for those who want to get a ready-made Expert Advisor for less money.
