Grid System

A grid system allows you to profit when a symbol is ranging rather than trending in one direction. Our implementation uses all the capabilities of our EA, e.g. can optionally stop/exit grid prior to high impact news. Buttons are provided on the panel to stop the grid and to close all trades.

Rule Descriptionquick load code
Four (configurable) levels up and down grid with optional exit prior to high impact news Rule Details g

Rules Based on Candle Size/'Color' etc, inc. Heiken-Ashi, Price Action

In addition to indicator values, rules can take action based on candle prices, whether regular candles or other types, such as the popular Heiken-Ashi  or Smoothed Heiken-Ashi. The high/low, open/close and candle color can all be used in the rule to decided what to do. It is also possible to look either at the candle just closed, or the last two or three (say).

Rule Descriptionquick load code
Alert/open when regular candle closes with sufficient body size (in pips) and with the right color Rule Details c-cc
Alert/open if candle opens pips above/below high/low Rule Details c-ohl

Automatically Setup Pending Orders plus Slant-able Pending Lines

Rules can also setup pending orders. The trigger price can be based on candle high/low/close/open, indicator values or on a price entered in manually on the EA control panel. It is also possible to configure slant-able pending lines, i.e. where a trade is opened when the price reaches/breaks through a slanted trend line. All pending orders are set using our hidden (virtual) pending orders.

Additional Exit Rules

Includes automatic exit just before a news event. Nothing can blow you trade/account out of the water more than a high impact news event. The market can even move beyond your broker stop loss in single tick. Similarly, not leaving trades open over the weekend is also important, as the market could resume after the weekend with a price gap beyond your stop loss.
