SmartForexExpert EAs / General Announcements
« on: October 18, 2019, 04:18:56 PM »
I'm gonna disable now GBP, EUR, CHF and USD currencies in NS and STE from now until Monday afternoon, to avoid potential big volatility between the close of this Friday and Monday opening.

Letter received from ICMarkets:

Dear Trader,

As you may be aware, in accordance with news announcements on 18 October 2019, the UK Parliament will sit in what could be one of the most important Commons’ sessions of the entire Brexit process on Saturday 19 October 2019, where it will consider the Brexit deal that Boris Johnson has now secured with the European Union with notable changes to the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration.

As such, we wish to provide our clients with this warning as the result of the Parliament sitting on Saturday may potentially cause turbulent markets on Monday 21 October 2019.  In addition, we wish to warn our clients of the increased risk of volatility with the potential for market gaps on the market open at 08:00 AEDT Monday, October 21st / 21:00 GMT Sunday, October 20th.

What should you do?

IC Markets urges its clients to take precautionary measures in relation to the UK Parliamentary sitting.

This includes:

●     assessing and reducing risk exposures;

●     setting stop levels particularly on the currencies of GBP and EUR related positions;

Furthermore, additional funding may protect clients from large adverse movements in the market.

SmartForexExpert EAs / SFE Stealth EA

SFE STEALTH

The system looks for signs of reversal, in hours when the market is not strong and the risk of high movements is low.

The system has the ability to work well with many symbols, and the correlation of the different symbols is generally very low, giving to the system a very high diversification, which reduces the overall risk.

The system generally launches several trades every day, which added to the high diversification, provides the opportunity to aspire to a relatively stable growth.

LIVE SETUP

The EA is very easy to setup, and can be used with the default parameters. Only parameters related with the GMT of the broker and the size of the orders must be checked.

The EA must be attached to ONLY one M5 chart. Use an EURUSD chart is recommended.

If the names of the symbols aren't the common in your broker platform, update the names in the Symbol List parameter.

The EA is very lightweight in resources demand, and can be used with other EAs.

SmartForexExpert EAs / Forex Calendar
« on: August 24, 2019, 01:48:41 PM »
I noticed that the most dangerous days to trade, seems the days when there are holidays in one of the main places, because this lack of liquidity has made very weird movements sometimes. For example the flash crash of the AUD/JPY currencies on January 3th this year can be related with this.

I add this to my queue of jobs, but if some user can help me explaining a but the calendar of Australia or Japan or posting a resource to get the information, will be a great help. I'm mainly interested in these calendars because the most sensible EA for this issue is probably the SFE Night Scalper, then, these sessions are the two most involucred.

I'm also working in get the big events in real time, like the interest rate decisions. Proably EAs like the night scalper is also better to disconnect in these events.

SmartForexExpert EAs / do you have a solution for such flash crashes?
« on: August 14, 2019, 10:39:56 PM »
I want to post this conversation here because is a very important question, a trader and me were talking in relation to the SFE Night Scalper, but is a general question that affects all the EAs.

Anyone who wants to participate sharing his experience or 'bad' experience problably in this case, is welcome.

"yes, I am aware of this particular big crash on all JPY pairs at the beginning of this year, and of some other flashes (like CHF) before and I know that even best EA can get catched into that. Your EA has been actually very lucky that the trades were closed at that prices, it went much lower.
For this particular JPY crash - it could have been avoided by not trading over Christmas and New Year. In generall this is the most dangerous time due to lov liquidity. also End of July - August is a time where it's good to have a break to be on the very safe side, ;-)

-> but in general, do you have a solution for such flash crashes, not only for your EA, but in general? I don't believe any stop losses can work in such situation, it's not controllable. what is your method?"



- the closes the day of the flash jpy/aud crash (the two currencies were affected, was a double crash!) , in some orders weren't in the worst price, but in others, I have closes in prices that never were exist, because I suppose that in some moments, the spread was ultra wide. Some of the orders were closed more than 100 pips far of the worst price....

SL is not controlable in this  kind of situation, but still acts as protection although the price goes much far.

What is the way for prevent? two, the first is what you has told, learn from previous experience and in this dates of very low liquidity deactivate the EA is very smart. My EAs don't control this kind of calendar situations for the moment, so for the moment, must be a manual action. Or for example, disconnect the EA the day of the brexit vote or similar....

The second, is diversify, diversify, diversify. In this sense I always work, I recommend to use EAs that works with different pairs / systems / timeframes... and if is possible, merge different good EAs the most uncorrelated possible, not use the 100% of balance in every EA obviously, and in this way, is virtually impossible to see your account with a big damage from one day to another. Can happens that if the systems don't works, you enter in a progressive losses, but at least, if you use systems very diversified, and still better, more than one system, you know that you are safe in this sense.

So, in systems like SFE Night Scalper, has been hitted 100% by the crash, but because is a very diversified systems which use a lot of pairs, this big loses in some pairs didn't were the wipe of the account, like happened with other systems that bets all on few trades or even worse, these sytems that never close the losing trades!

In the Night Scalper, after that day, I rebalanced the weight of the trades in the different pairs ,and the weight of the JPY and AUD trades was decreased because these two currencies are the more dangerous at these hours. I also changed the management of the opened orders, trying to exit more quick with exits in steps, this way the exposition at a punctual moment can be more little than previous versions.

And the day of the CHF crash some years ago, SFE Price Action were hitted also in some trades, but the same, is very diversified, and was a day with a big lose but was recovered in few weeks.

Obiously I can't guarantee continuous profit, and some of my EAs are currently in drawdawn or stagnation process, but in all these years, I don't have news that any of the users of my EAs has wipped his account. For this reason, I think that all this that I said is 'correct' and is confirmed by the facts.

SmartForexExpert signals / Myfxbook AUTOTRADE copier
« on: August 12, 2019, 07:20:35 PM »
SFE Price Action can be followed using myfxbook AUTOTRADE.

https://www.myfxbook.com/members/autotrade/sfe-price-action/1331484

The Expert is in the position 2 of the list of autotrade systems offered by myfxbook.



Using myfxbook autotrade is not our recommended way to copy SFE signals (or any signal), because the user pays a lot of commission (via extra spread) on each trade, so, although you are not paying a monthly fee, you are winning less or losing more in each trade.

SmartForexExpert EAs / SFE KISS EA
« on: June 16, 2019, 09:53:38 PM »
KISS is an acronym for "Keep it simple, stupid" as a design principle that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated.

This expert is the result of simplifying at maximum level the algorithms of the others SFE 'price action' based experts.

The use of the expert is very simple, and needs very low computer resources.

SmartForexExpert EAs / SFE Night Scalper EA
« on: June 10, 2019, 10:47:55 PM »
This system takes advantage of the stagnation of the market at the final of the New York session and the first hours after that close. It detects small deviations and enters in the contrary direction trying to close the operation in the level before that deviation happens. If the operation does not close with profit during the stagnation hours, the EA tries to exit in a favourable condition in the next hours, before the European session opens again.
