Arbitrage-news trading EA. Works at a user-defined deviation from the price during the news release (optional). The trade is opened when the fast broker gets ahead of the slow one by the specified amount of points. The trades are opened by the direction of the fast broker price movement, works both during the news release and without the news filter. The news filter automatically determines the time zone and the currency the news is released on.
To enable the news filter you need to do the following:
In the trading terminal of the Slow Broker (Priority = _SlowBroker) open "Tools" ---> "Options" ---> "Expert Advisors" ---> add "http://calendar.fxstreet.com" to the "Allow WebRequest for listed URL list" field.
Important! The EA cannot be tested in the Strategy Tester, therefore download the Demo version of the EA for testing.
The EA should be run on 2 trading terminals of different brokers. Choose the Priority in the EA settings – the EA priority, either fast broker (_FastBroker) or slow broker (_SlowBroker).
- _FastBroker – the EA stored the quotes in a file in the common folder for further analysis;
- _SlowBroker – the EA reads and analyzes the quotes received from the fast broker and opens trades.
The trading itself is performed on the terminal with the Priority = _SlowBroker (slow broker).
