Trend follower

The swiss knife for Day Traders

Developed by traders, for traders, Trend follower, SwingTrader and P/L optimizer are just a few examples of highly customizable Expert Advisor tools running on the Metatrader trading platform to assist in actively managing the traded funds, primarily to monitor and minimize risk exposure, while aiming at the desired profit target.
The above picture shows the TrendFollower EA in action: while analysing the daily trend of selected financial instruments, showing strategical chart information useful for the next trade, reporting all positions details and current overall Profit vs. Risk margin, it also takes care of trailing the set SL on the open positions and triggers new Traling Stops or closes positions as soon as the desired conditions are met, keeping user's inputs constantly alive for full control and real-time interaction. These are just a few example operations executed by the EA. For a full description of all available features, please refer to the user's manual or do not hesitate to contact us.
A full introduction, general trading coaching and live training sessions are offered free of charge on customer's request in order to explore the several options, optimize settings for each situation and exploit all benefits of our tools.

In the picture below you can see an example of a combination of the EA Trend Follower along with some of our in-house developed indicators and our keyboards while operating in a typical day trading session.

    Main features:

  • Especially suited for a hedging trading style, thanks to target-oriented SL trailing functions
  • Risk management tool, allowing to keep an eye on the current max loss/profit and automating the TS
  • Primarily tailored to Day Trading, as all metrics and notifications are referred to the Daily P/L
  • Applicable on different financial instruments at the same time
  • Option to execute on all open positions or only selectively on the ones open contextually with the EA
  • Can be used on any traded security, as long as tick and trading events exist
  • Customizable with on-the-fly changeable parameters
  • Bracket orders and OCO feature
  • Voice feedback, allowing to monitor current situation with a powered off screen
