This EA requires a broker having Market Execution (ECN, NDD, STP accounts), low spread, zero StopLevel (or close to such level), no commission if possible (as it influences on the profit amount). Order executin time should be measured in milliseconds, not minutes, requotes and slippage should not happen too often.
Deposit: Minimum deposit is $50 (MinLot = 0.01) or $500 (MinLot = 0.1)
Recommended currency pairs: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, USDJPY, USDCHF, USDCAD
- No Martingale / No grid / No arbitrage.
- The SAFE function (protects the deposit from losses).
- The LOT is calculated basing on FreeMargin, RiskMM and StopLoss.
- Good for 5-digit quotes, worse for 4-digit quotes (less trades).
- Uses tight stops.
- Supports ECN accounts.
- Has 3 trading filters to choose from (Trade_Filter).
- The Commission parameter corrects the test.
- Works with brokers having symbols with suffixes.

- Function of monitoring positions not having SL. It detects and corrects SL before repeated modification of a position.
- Adapted for operation on accounts with any major currency pair (EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY).
- Broker error messages are displayed in the log.
- Function of correction SL & TP relatively to StopLevel.
- Control over trading activity based on percentage of the free margin (Min_Margin).

Fantastic concept that can turn $1,000 into over a million in 2 months in backtesting! When run on a live account, my broker told me to turn it off as it exceeds the maximum number of actions allowed by MetaTrader - 2,000 a day. This was making about 10,000 per instrument!!! 5 stars for the theory, zero for the practice.
