Not merging advisor mesh - Survivor Expert Advisor
Here is a brief summary of information from several Russian forums. Maybe everything below is written the truth and you'll like working with it.
Is it possible to combine a grid strategy with a safe trading style? In a general sense, the words: "grid" and "security" in the field of trading are antonyms. However, there is an exception - an adviser to Survivor, whose trading results say that such a combination is possible.
Using a deposit of 100 USD, this expert is able to double the account size within 1-2 months. At the same time, used in every deal SL guarantees that your funds will remain safe.
A non-merging adviser Survivor is a semi-skalping indicator expert using the principles of averaging and an intelligent system for controlling risks.
With the help of a whole set of indicators, Survivor controls the direction of the trend and selects the most suitable local corrections for making deals. Transactions are only in the direction of the trend, after which the multi-currency adviser Survivor exposes the physical SL and TP.
Further, if the price went to the side of the transaction, the position is closed by Take Profit or by the reverse signal of the indicators. If the price goes in the opposite direction, the adviser adds averaging positions and "jumps out" from the market at the first rollback on the reverse signal of the indicators, without waiting for the achievement of quotes SL and the moment of output of the total position in profit.
The entrance to the market is carried out by a signal from a large number of indicators Forex: Bollinger Bands, RSI, ADX, DeMarker, Moving Average.
If after the opening of the transaction the price went in "our" direction, it closes by take profit or according to the indications of indicators about the beginning of the price movement in the opposite direction.
If the price goes against an open order, then the order grid is built, which closes when it rolls back to profit.
The number of orders of the grid of Advisor Forex Survivor is limited by the parameter "MaxOrders". At movements on which the robot collects a grid of orders greater than specified in the "MaxOrders" parameter, a loss is fixed. Parameters of order setting, indicator properties and exit conditions are specified in the external parameters of the Expert Advisor and can be adjusted and optimized.
Due to the fact that this non-merging adviser concludes about 80% of profitable trades, the profit is enough to get a steadily growing profitability schedule, and to trade with a virtually absent drawdown by equity.
• Timeframe for trading - M5
• Currency pairs - EURUSD USDJPY GBPUSD USDCHF (as well as other pairs after preliminary optimization)
• Minimum deposit - from 100 USD
• Recommended lot for trade - 0,01
• It is recommended to use VPS for trading around the clock
• ECN-brokers are recommended.
Using a fixed lot 0,01, this adviser, trading on any of the recommended currency pairs, during the period from 2010 to 2017, was able to disperse the trading account from 100 to 1300-2500 USD, concluding in profit more than 80% of transactions with absent drawdown by equity (that is, with the absence of green "snot" on the profitability graph). If you use the Auto-lot option during the trade, you can achieve even greater results, since the adviser will increase the lot size independently after each doubling of the trading account.
To start using, it must be installed in the trading platform MT4 and load into it the required set-up file for the currency pair. After that, a minimum fixed lot of 0.01 will be set in the Expert Advisor and you can start trading.
In order for this adviser to get a more frequent and stable profit, we recommend using several currency pairs on the trading account. However, for this, the minimum deposit must be increased, allocating for each pair of 100 USD.
Also, we recommend trading ECN-type accounts for trading, which will help the robot to earn more efficiently than on a normal account type."
Before you place an advisor on a trading account, check it in the tester and on the demo account.
Examples of transactions below.
From the analysis of the EA Survivor EA's work, you can see that the robot uses a huge number of indicators.
And at first glance it seems that with the help of such an abundance of indicators, the robot analyzes the market in more detail. However, perhaps it's just an attempt to confuse the user and to distract attention from the fact that the robot often "overstays" the drawdown, opening the grid of orders in anticipation of a rollback of the price in our direction.
Although we must admit that the results of the tests on the history gave a good result, but the final conclusion on this robot can be done only on the basis of real trade.
