Currency Strength Basket Trader 28 Pair Pro
The Automated EA program trades a basket of 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 in the direction of the strong currency. 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 closes the basket of trades once the Overall Profit Target is met. 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. Make sure to try the setting file located within Comment #1.
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.
