The idea is based on breakthrough strategy.

Trade rules :

  • Find the maximal/minimal price values in the period from 14 to 16 hours (terminal time) and set pending orders for buy/sell at the maximal/minimal value.
  • We set orders only if the distance between the maximum and minimum is not more than 50 points
  • Take Profit is 30 points. Trailing Stop is 15 points.
  • Stop Loss defined at the price level of the opposite deal. Unused orders are removed at the end of the day.

Would the 14 to 16 hours be the same for me as they are for you? wouldn’t this time value be different depending upon your brokers timeframe? So if this is the case, this may not be a winning system if we are using different brokers than yours. Does this program take that into consideration? also what about DTS? Does it handle US vs Euro DTS offsets?

Why is that a limitation on the pip spread between high and low? What is the result if beyond 50 pips?

What pair does this work on? Is it good for multiple pairs?

Finally, why a pending trade? Why not simply wait for a confirmation value and enter the trade, if not, then do not place the trade?

Why is it that the code can be translated, but never the remarks or comments?

Very good EA! Can you add 10 or 15 pips above (for buy) or below (for sell) orders?

Tx and regards,
