Exp_CGOscillator_X2 – expert for MetaTrader 5

  • A+

The Exp_CGOscillator_X2 trend trading system based on the signals from two CG Oscillator 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. The signal is formed when a bar is closing if two conditions are met:

  1. Signals of the fast and slow trend match;
  2. Direction of the fast trend has changed.

The CGOscillator_HTF indicators in the EA are intended only 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 CGOscillator.ex5 and CGOscillator_HTF.ex5 indicator files to <terminal_data _folder>MQL5Indicators.

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 together with position opening. You can download more variants of the library at the following link: Trade Algorithms.

Default Expert Advisor's input parameters have been used during the tests shown below. Stop Loss and Take Profit have not been used during the tests.
