Used tools and indicators

For the best results, trade with professional ECN/STP broker with MT4. If you can't trade with profit. Automatically copy the traders that are already profitable.

Exponential moving averages (EMA 500,250) Standard tool for trend identification. To establish trend, we will be looking for position of fast ema compared to slow.

Commodity channel index (CCI 100) Secondary trend filter. Adjust sell below (0) and buy above zone (0), to separate the market range and trend. The space between buy above and sell below zone is a no trade zone.

Parabolic SAR (max 0,05, step 0,02). Terciary trend filter. SAR will also work as a lead for our trailing stop.

Trailing stop (extra deviation 80 pips). Primary way of position liquidation. Extra deviation can be applied to cover extra market volatility and let the position roll a little bit further.

Candle signal (Min 30, max 150 pips candle size) Candle must meet the requirements for minimum maximum body size. This will filter out hesitant, narrow candles leading nowhere. Tall candles tend to provide more momentum after entry, covering the distance of trailing stop.

Max wick size (15 pips) We define maximum wick size on signal candle. Tall wick signalizes too much struggle between bulls and bears, lowering momentum and making the candle unsuitable for this type of entry.

Volumes. Signal candle must have more activity than previous candle (larger volumes). This signalizes growing interest of traders in trend continuation (comparing the effect/result of bearish candle and larger volume).

MAX open trades (30): Limits the number of maximum open trades per direction.

Adding to the winner rule: If trade exists new trade can only be opened if account profit is larger or equal than number of open trades*lot size*100.

Liquidation: We can also adjust profit and loss targets for expert advisor. Do not forget to put – (minus) before max loss input. When using this function in expert advisor, use this system on only one currency pair per account. We haven't used this function in our test (it was set unrealistically high).
