This is the second Expert Advisor for a large currency portfolio for Metatrader 5.
The Expert Advisor is based on the Bollinger Bands indicator, which shows not only the direction of the trend, but also the strength of the trend. An important feature of the indicator is giving a signal to close an open position.
Designed for EURUSD.
- Quantity of transactions per month 2-3 (medium-term strategy)
Each trade is supplied with a stop loss.
The work is carried out with trailing stop orders in order to catch a powerful impulse.
All dangerous tactics are not applied (grids, martingale, anti-martingale - no)
- Has long periods of stagnation, so it should only work in a portfolio with other advisors (for example, together with EA Favorite Ichimoku EURUSD. See how EA Favorite Ichimoku EURUSD + EA Not The Grail EURUSD complement each other)
- Very small drawdown.
- High Profit Factor.
- Work on classic, time-tested indicators (basic indicator - Bollinger Bands).
- Resistant to slippage and spread widening.
The Expert Advisor was created for the period from 2010 to 2018.
Further testing was carried out using the Forward test to exclude the possibility of fitting the results. 🔥 Please note: the advisor is not independent, it is created for portfolios of advisors and can have a long period of stagnation.
All brokers are 5 digits and 4 digits.
EA Not The Grail EURUSD - passed stability tests:
Passes checks on neighboring timeframes, as well as on similar currencies (GBPUSD).
This is done proactively for a changing market. Sometimes EURUSD starts to behave like GBPUSD. Sometimes EURUSD on the H1 timeframe can accelerate its movements and behave as if we are looking at the M30 timeframe.
The tactics were created for portfolio strategies, so the priority of work is not profit, but stability of work. This means that the worst thing that should be is long periods of stagnation, not losses.
Passes Monte Carlo checks.
The EA does not guarantee profit. The EA guarantees small drawdowns and indestructibility.
