List of Strategies

Download presets & tests

It's necessary to divide trading risks between presets that use the same strategy.
You can use a software like QuantAnalizer (free version) to merge different MT4 reports.

The EA is designed in a clear and logical way. All possible settings/strategies are customizable.

You don’t require low delay (latency) with your VPS and fast execution speed with your broker. Only the ‘NYClose trading’ strategy will require low spreads and an ECN account. For other strategies, the low spread is not important due to the fact they have a high expected value (mathematical expectation) in pips. Thus, if you don’t use ‘NY_CloseTrading’ strategy, you may use any account type.

Spoiler: Why the 'NY_CloseTrading' strategy uses a big stop >>>

For now (v1.78 September 2017), the Belkaglazer platform allows you to use 10 diverse strategies.

4-NY_CloseTrading
*Please read the note below
It is a classic mean reversion strategy. It places a pending limit order in the opposite direction of a short-term price movement at the end of the North American Session (New York). The MR strategy assumes the price is likely to reverse direction and move back to the mean (average) in the near future.

 

This strategy has a low TP/SL ratio!

 

It’s strongly recommended to switch off ‘NY_CloseTrading’ strategy during the high-impact Forex news events.

10-FrontRunning (Added: 2017.08.21 )
FrontRunning is a strategy that uses publicly available knowledge about the behavior of a certain large group of market participants (when they will enter or exit a market). For example, most ‘momentum’ traders will buy after closing a large bullish candle. Knowing this, you can enter the market a moment before such a large candle is completely formed, and you can catch the price movement that ‘momentum’ traders will create when they simultaneously buy a currency pair.

See Figure 3: Volatility during an hour

EURUSD 3-Market[M][PA][v1.787][FrontRunning]_EURUSD_M1.set This strategy has a very small average trade (1-2pips) and a short position holding time (max. 1-2min).

I recommend using it only for educational purposes.

It’s required a good broker with low spreads.


The MT4 StopLoss is temporarily disabled in the ‘NY_CloseTrading‘ strategy with cross-pairs (eg AUDNZD) for 1 hour during the ‘FX rollover’ (a low-liquidity time). Otherwise, the MT4 StopLoss can be activated due to the spread widening. If StopLoss will be accidentally triggered (for example, if a spread has widened from 3 to 40 pips for 1 Sec.) then this may lead to a big loss. The MT4 StopLoss cannot correctly protect your position during a low-liquidity time.

You can disable this option if your broker has a similar feature:

AlpariSettings Belkaglazer

Just set ‘DisableSL_Hour‘ parameter to ‘-1

You also can turn off this option if you are sure that your broker does not widen spreads during the ‘FX rollover’ time.

An example of the spread widening:
