    Trading the Alligator+Fractals Strategy

    Author: Maks Artemov

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Today, we will speak about one of the most popular Forex strategies called Alligator+Fractals. It was designed by a famous market psychologist and successful trader Bill Williams in the 20th century, however, it remains topical nowadays.

    Alligator+Fractals belongs to trend strategies, which means it does not work in the times of a flat.

    This strategy is multicurrency, however, observations show that it works better on instruments with a small spread, such as most basic currency pairs and metals. With high-volatile instruments, it may give false signals.

    You may use any timeframe; however, on smaller ones, signals will be multiple but their quality may worsen. On H4 and longer timeframes, signals will demonstrate better quality but appear more rarely. A trade will be working off for several days if not weeks. The size of Stop Losses on large timeframes may exceed the size allowed by your risk management. However, the profit may be huge compared to the Stop Loss.

    The Fractals and Alligator indicators: the base of the strategy

    This strategy is based on two indicators designed by Bill Williams and included in most trading terminals by default:

    1. Fractals
    2. Alligator

    Fractals indicator settings

    The Fractals indicator looks like an arrow above a Japanese candlestick or a bar and points at the price extreme. For a Fractal to appear, the following conditions are necessary:

    • The highs of the two first candlesticks are increasing.
    • The high of the third candlestick is higher than those of the preceding two candlesticks.
    • The highs of the fourth and fifth candlesticks are decreasing gradually.
    • If all the requirements are met, a fractal forms on the extreme.

    In the settings, you may only change the color and the width of the line. Other parameters are set.

    How to Use Mean Reversion Indicator: Settings and Trading

    Author: Maks Artemov

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Many traders use support and resistance levels in their trading systems and strategies. There are quite many ways of using them: they apply to market and pending orders, their breakaways and bounces off them may be used in market analysis; also, they are landmarks for Stop Losses and Take Profits. Moreover, traders pay attention to the overbought and oversold areas. For trading, a comprehensive approach may be used: tech analysis suits for detecting the levels and indicators help find the oversold and overbought areas. However, you might manage with just one indicator that will show everything. It is called Mean Reversion.

    Mean Reversion overview

    Let us look at the indicator in action and try to see into its signals.

    Mean Reversion belongs to the group of channel indicators. This means that on the chart it draws channels inside which the price moves and tries to forecast its behavior. The multi-currency Mean Reversion indicator in MT4 applies to all trading instruments. The developer states that it works on any timeframe and in any trading session. Theoretically, its application in Forex is unlimited.

    [​IMG]

    Mean Reversion

    Mean Reversion settings

    The indicator is drawn on the chart of the instrument and looks like seven lines, between which the price moves. The central line is the main one, above and below it six more lines constitute the channel. The main line is called the gravity center. It is calculated based on polynomial regression. Other lines show the overbought and oversold areas and are calculated as a standard deviation from the central one. For the sake of clarity, the overbought area lies above the central line between the grey and upper blue lines. The oversold area lies below the main line between the grey and lower red lines.

    Shooting Pips: Trading the Sniper Strategy

    Author: Andrey Goilov

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Today, there are plenty of trading strategies and work options for various markets both with indicators and without them. The Sniper strategy belongs to the second group: it consists of chart analysis solely, involving no additional indicators.

    Opinions differ about using just the price chart for trading. Some think that this type of trading is subjective, and several traders may see different signals on the same chart. Moreover, this trading method is hard to back-test, unlike the work of indicators, where you can study all previous signals rather easily.

    However, the Sniper remains popular among Internet users, experienced traders and beginners alike. In this overview, we will discuss the peculiarities, advantages, and drawbacks of the strategy.

    Description of the Sniper strategy

    The strategy is meant for intraday trading, which means positions are not transferred to the next day. Also, trades are not opened at the moment of the publication of important economic news. The strategy uses classical instruments of tech analysis, such as the support and resistance levels, sideways movements. The publication of news, in this case, may hinder trading the levels.

    [​IMG]

    GBP/USD price chart - Sniper strategy

    The idea is to open positions in the direction of the breakaway of the channel that was formed at night - using horizontal levels. As a rule, at night, volatility drops significantly, and flats form, squeezed between strict levels.

    Avalanche Of Profit: Testing the Expert Advisor

    Author: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Today, we will discuss an expert advisor for scalping: it works on H1 but makes a large number of trades. The Avalanche expert advisor is a high-frequency trading robot aiming at numerous trades even on large timeframes. The number of trades may amount to hundreds a day and thousands a month.

    The working principle of the Avalanche EA

    The trading algorithm of the robot is simple. For finding entry points, it uses 2 standard indicators: the Bollinger Bands and Relative Strength Index (RSI). The first one is a range indicator, hence, it may be used as a trend indicator for defining the general market direction. The second one is an oscillator, a special type of indicator which traders most often use for finding entry points. To put it simply, the expert advisor needs two signals from the indicators given simultaneously to open a position in a chosen point.

    Unfortunately, I failed to find out how the expert advisor uses the indicators and what signals exactly it chooses. This is because the code of the robot wrote by the author is encoded and the working algorithm has a completely different style. All the sorts of the initial code I have managed to find are downloadable at the end of this article.

    Only basic currency pairs suit for this robot: EUR/USD and GBP/USD; you may try it with other pair as the trading strategy of the robot is rather universal, however, it has been optimized for the named pairs.

    The timeframe recommended by the developers is H1 as the strategy was designed for it. Frankly speaking, the timeframe is not that important: the Avalanche gives the same results on H1 and M5.

    The expert advisor can both work with a fixed and dynamic lot (the latter increases proportionally alongside the deposit). The developers assure us that the expert advisor does not need optimization; judging by its parameters, I would say it is true.

    Top-7 Trading Strategies on Forex in 2020

    Author: Andrey Goilov

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    In RoboForex blog, we have discussed a whole range of forex strategies — from the simplest to the most intricate ones, from those suitable for beginners to those meant for experts, those with and without indicators. Today, I will try to enumerate top-7 trading strategies of 2020, which will be especially useful for you if you have not tried some of them yet.

    Always keep in mind that however beautiful a strategy may seem, never rush at using it on real money. Start with a demo account where you can painlessly master the strategy, detecting its strong and weak sides. Only after you reach good results try trading on a real account.

    1. The Fishing trading strategy

    The Fishing strategy is meant for D1, however, you may try it on timeframes no smaller than H1. The trading strategy uses special indicators that you may download from the detailed description of Fishing.

    [​IMG]

    The Fishing trading strategy

    The trading strategy gives two main signals for opening a position: a breakaway of the trendline drawn by the indicators and breakaways of the special sales and buy levels. In short, the whole work of Fishing is based on the indicators built in the strategy.

    An obvious advantage f the method is trading on D1: you do not need to spend all of your time at the trading terminal; another advantage is that you trade the trend. The drawbacks are the lack of back-testing because the indicator draws the lines for the current moment only.

    2. Woodies CCI trading strategy

    The Woodies CCI trading strategy is based on an indicator with the same name — Woodies CCI. It will suit those who prefer analyzing the price chart themselves. The author offers various ways of trading by the indicator: using breakaways of trendlines, graphic levels, bounces off the zero line.

    Boosting Your Deposit with Bunny: Testing the Expert Advisor

    Author: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Today, we will get acquainted with a trading robot which is meant for small starter deposits but trades much faster and with a higher risk than, say, Piplaser. The Bunny expert advisor is a scalper trading flats; it uses the same technique of averaging as the Martingale method.

    Trading algorithm of the Bunny expert advisor

    The trading algorithm of this robot is meant for trading flats; many state that most of the time the market is moving in a trend. However, there is an opinion that trends take only 30% of the market time, while the remaining time is dominated by flats. By this theory, flats last roughly 2 times longer than trends. Even though many traders are sure that we should make money on trends (and so am I), but some try to prove the contrary. The Bunny expert advisor is one of their examples.

    Apart from being a scalping robot, the Bunny is also promoted as an expert advisor for small deposits; I have already discussed some of such robots in the blog. However, there is one point: the Bunny uses 2 risky techniques – the averaging of open positions and Martingale. The latter technique is used for averaging and consists of doubling the lot each time the trader opens a new position to average the already opened one.

    You may, of course, switch off Martingale in the settings of the robot; however, averaging is a part of the trading system meant for protecting form a movement. I do not know whether the Bunny EA uses any indicators; however, judging by the results of back-testing, it trades differently: sometimes it opens trades by the trend while in other cases it opens trades strictly counter it and, naturally, averages.

    After the expert advisor opens its positions, the market not necessarily proceeds in their direction, so it has to average frequently. Regardless of being meant for trading flats, the Bunny advisor keeps trading 24 hours a day, never “caring” about the price being in a trend or a flat. It seems like the robot does not even try to distinguish between them, opening trades for some other reasons.

    How to Set Up and Use the Accumulation/Distribution Indicator?

    Author: Maks Artemov

    [​IMG]

    Dear Traders,

    Today, I will get you acquainted with the Accumulation/Distribution (A/D) indicator. By the author’s idea, it must define and compare the buy and sell volumes of the asset. Such a comparison may help the trader to find the entry point to the market. For example, if buys prevail, the asset is likely to go on growing.

    Let us have a look at the settings and ways to use the indicator.

    Location and appearance of the Accumulation/Distribution

    The A/D indicator is included by default in most trading terminals, both the mobile and desktop versions. It is not extremely popular among traders, however, it is as worth as others.

    If you spend some time studying its principles of work, you may use it as a filter for ready trading strategies or along with other indicators. It might be used on its own, however, defining the signals may be difficult.

    In MT4, A/D can be found in Indicators – Volumes.

    [​IMG]

    Accumulation/Distribution - MT4

    This indicator opens in a separate window and looks like a curved line that almost all the time mimics the movements of the price chart. In the settings, you may change the color and width of the line. These are the only settings of the indicator.
