Daily Engulfing EA
Daily Engulfing pattern is one of the strongest patterns in trading industry. This pattern predicts strong movement. The EA has special algorithm to prevent false signals. I worked on this EA several months.
This EA can find such pattern and open trade next day. User can set trading time (default 8-18.30). If you use this EA try to pick Open loss and Open target option true because in that case you can set stop loss and target alone. In testing mode stop loss/target is 200. Performance is excellent if trader controls stop loss and target in own way. The EA alows that trader to set additional trades which will be opened in the same time and then to set different targets and stop loss. The EA will not trade very often. It will be 1-2 trades per month per currency pair. I use this EA on all pairs when I trade. Better results can be made if a user controls trades and sets alone stop loss and profit. "Daily candle close" option can follow the trend or not. If the EA detects that trend does not follow the pattern, the trade will be closed next day.
