The advisor NewsCatcher Free opens trades when the price makes
a reversal move from support and resistance levels. Market entries
should be confirmed by the Relative Strength Index (RSI). The RSI is
implemented as a tachometer.
NewsCatcher Pro automatically downloads calendars from 3 sources, opens both instant and pending orders according to the data received, allows to set up a strategy for each event and trails its trades.
NewsCatcher Visual automatically downloads calendars from 3 sources, including event descriptions, suggests a preferred direction for a trade, opens market and pending orders by the user's instruction and trails its trades.
NewsCatcher Free automates trades opened at price reversals which are spurred by economic data releases and rising volitality. It can also trail its trades.
It is recommended to use this advisor in a highly volatile market after a political event or a release of major economic data.
You can use this advisor in the semi-automated mode (the RSI performs
an information role) or in the fully automated mode (the RSI decides
when to enter the market). The timeframe for the semi-automated mode
should not be bigger than 30 minutes, for the fully automated mode - H1
It turns out that the semi-automated mode, when you locate the major
support and resistance levels visually, yields a better result.
You can move the thick line (the level chased by the price). The
price must touch the thick line at least once for a trade to be
possible. After that, a thin line appears. When the price crosses the
thin line a trade is opened. Keep in mind that the advisor opens a buy
only in a bullish bar, and a sell in a bearish bar.
You can change the timeframe to see how the current level looks like
in other timeframes. The advisor keeps the current level. To drop the
current level, switch off the buy or sell button.
There are 2 strategies:
1) The Buy Strategy.
The price moves downside and reaches the oversold zone. As you may
know, it is better to buy at the lowest point. But the price may go even
lower. How do you know when the price should make a reversal move? This
is when the advisor NewsCatcher Free comes in handy. If the
price continues to fall, the advisor pushes the thick line (support
level) lower. The advisor waits for the price to make a definitive
reversal move upside and cross the thin line. Only then it opens a buy.
2) The Sell Strategy.
The price moves upside and reaches the overbought zone. As you may
know, it is better to sell at the highest point. As in the buy strategy,
the advisor pushes the thick line (resistance level) higher until the
price makes a definitive reversal move downside. When the price crosses
the thin line, the advisor opens a sell.
