Exp_Sinewave2_X2 – expert for MetaTrader 5

A trend-following trading system Exp_Sinewave2_X2 is based on the signals of two indicators Sinewave2 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 cross or touch each other. 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.

Indicators Sinewave2_Cloud_HTF in the EA are only intended for a more convenient visualization of trends in the strategy tester, and they are inactive in other operation modes.

For the generated EA to operate correctly, the compiled files of indicators CyclePeriod.ex5, Sinewave2.ex5, and Sinewave2_Cloud_HTF.ex5 must be in the <terminal_data_directory>\MQL5\Indicators folder.
