Black Night mt5
Black Night is more than just another night scalper. It is focused on safety first for a long-term stable growth:
- It keeps trading activity low in the difficult rollover hour when the spreads widen and liquidity is low.
- It starts trading one hour before the 'usual' night scalping time to take profit without swap and before spreads widen - if possible.
- If a trade is open it does not open trades in correlating currency pairs.
- It needs no set files and works fully automatically with the default settings in 10+ pairs.
- Black Night shows live trading results.
- Black Night allows to adjust the strategy.
- Black Night does not use dangerous strategies like martingale or grid.
It opens always just one order with hard StopLoss in a currency pair.
For lack of space here see setup and settings in short form in the mt4 version.
Backtesting and optimization for mt5 are explained in the blog >>
Version 1.4 is internally otimized for all pairs shown in the screenshots.

Version 1.5 will work better in more currency pairs.
See live trading (take a look at the signal description):
Now, between the years, meaningful trading is rarely possible. If there are any movements at all, experience shows that they are extremely unpredictable due to the overall thin trading volume. For this reason, live trading is deactivated until 4 January,
Many night scalpers had a hard time with heavy drowdowns since Thanksgiving - but not Black Night!
Black Nights advanced filter system and the exclusion of correlating pairs show effect.
Black Night 'knows' when important US holidays come, to lower then trading activity in USD related pairs.
First Black Night sets limit orders in many currency pairs. If a limit order is executed and turnes into a buy
or sell the EA deletes correlating limit orders and doesn't open new ones until the running order is closed.
