Disaster – expert for MetaTrader 5

The author of the idea: Maxym Kondratiuk, the mq5 code author: barabashkakvn.

The trading strategy is based on the observation, which shows that if the price crosses the MA chart and moves a certain distance, the price is likely to continue its movement in the same direction.

The EA uses pending Buy Stop and Sell Stop orders. Pending orders are modified to follow the current price at the specified Distance from MA for setting a pending order. An action is performed every Timeout seconds. The EA only trails pending orders. Once an order triggers and turns into a position, the position will no longer be modified.

  • Stop Loss
  • Take Profit
  • Trailing Step
