Actual Timer Robot

This is a classic strategy for trend tools. The trading robot finds maximums and minimums for the specified time period and allows you to define the traded range and trade the range's breakthroughs. This simple tactics implemented in Actual Timer Robot grants you statistical advantage.

It is believed that the simpler the strategy, the longer it works. Many successful strategies based on that tactics have already been implemented (boxes, trade session time, ranges before the statistics release) - they work both on Forex market and on gold and silver. I use this strategy when trading the most liquid futures of FORTS (Derivatives Market section of the Moscow exchange). Optimize multiple parameters, check your observations in the tester and launch the EA on a real account taking advantage of the found market inefficiencies!
