Exp_XROC2_VG_X2 – expert for MetaTrader 5

  • A+

The Exp_XROC2_VG_X2 trend-following trading system is based on the signals generated by two XROC2_VG indicators. The first indicator determines the direction of the slow trend based on the position of the main and signal lines. The second indicator determines the moment for opening a trade, when the lines are crossed or touched. An entry signal is generated at a bar closure if the following two conditions are met:

  1. Fast and slow trend signals coincide;
  2. Fast trend has changed its direction.

String variable containing the text in the code of input parameters are only used for better visualization of the EA input parameters window.

The XROC2_VG_HTF indicators in the EA are only intended for a more convenient visualization of trends in the strategy tester, in other operation modes they are inactive.

In order to provide proper operation of the compiled Expert Advisor, you should add the compiled XROC2_VG.ex5 and XROC2_VG_HTF.ex5 indicator files to <terminal_data _folder>\MQL5\Indicators.

Note that the TradeAlgorithms.mqh library file allows using Expert Advisors with brokers who offer nonzero spread and the option of setting Stop Loss and Take Profit during position opening. You can download more variants of the library at the following link: Trade Algorithms.

Default input parameters of the Expert Advisor were used during the tests shown below. Stop Loss and Take Profit were not used during testing.
