Counterstrike

After a strong price movement in one direction, an order is opened into the opposite direction. No martingale, no grid, no more than one order is opened, always with StopLoss - profitable and safe. The EA uses Vola Alarm indicator for its strategy in GBPUSD. When a M5 bar closes and exceeds the set 240% of the average price movement, an order is opened in the opposite direction. In few cases, an order is opened into the same direction as extra function that can be disabled. Two moving averages filter the signals. The hour, at which a signal is triggered, is important for the strategy - don't forget to set UTC correctly!

In some cases, the StopLoss is cut in half and the lot size is doubled, so the risk for the position stays the same but profit may double. Normally, no TakeProfit is used, a trailing stop as used in the Crashtrader (see video there) lets the profits run. In some few cases, a TakeProfit is used, as shown in the video.

The EA works quite efficiently with constantly growing profit and low drawdowns since 2010, as backtests show. The less trend GBPUSD has, the better the EA works. For that reason, the backtest result is getting better every year since 2010.

版本 1.50 - 2015.07.30
Inner settings adapted to current market improves trading result.
版本 1.41 - 2015.02.16
Entry and take profit have been improved. New setting ECN_noTP set to true avoids setting a take profit by a market order, which is not possible on ECN accounts. If the new setting TakeProfitFix is higher than 0, a take profit is set together with the stop loss after opening an order.
版本 1.40 - 2015.01.08
HrStart and HrStop determine when the EA should work. Improvements of the algorithm improve the trading result.
版本 1.32 - 2014.08.27
The new version's algorithm is more adapted to current low intraday volatility.
