Forex Kozachok Expert Advisor review:
This is a non-standard Forex Kozachok Expert Advisor, which can’t be attributed to any particular type. It adjusts to the current market situation. The EA uses time and price information, trades using pending orders. The number of trades can differ from a few deals per month, up to dozens a week, it all depends on the current market conditions, settings, and the number of financial instruments traded. VPS is required for stable operation, minimum deposit is 1,000 units of the base currency. Timeframe does not matter.
The RA places two opposite pending orders, STOP or LIMIT depending on its input parameters. Orders are modified following the price based on the timer in seconds. When one of the pending orders triggers, the other one is deleted. If the EA is running on several currency pairs with the same magic number, all inactive pending orders are deleted, and the EA then works only with the pair, where a position was opened. If different magic numbers are used, the EA works with each of the pairs separately, i.e. when an order triggers for one currency pair, pending orders of other currency pairs are not deleted.
Opening New Orders
If the price moves in the direction opposite to the open position, a pending order will be placed at a preset distance to follow the price. A pending order will be modified only if the price continues to move in the wrong direction. Thus, we achieve the most favorable positions of new deals. Multiple positions can be opened at one price depending on the EA settings and the price behavior.
If one position is in the market. The first modification of stop-loss is the breakeven level, then point-based trailing stop is activated and works till a distance specified in the EA settings “TrailingStop”. After passing the distance, trailing by previous Hi-Lows of bars is enabled. The timeframe and the number of bars for finding the extreme values are specified in the EA settings. The switching trailing stop allows to maximize the profit.
If several positions are in the market. All deals are closed by a common profit. Some deals can be closed with a small loss, but the total profit of closed orders is always greater than the loss. All positions are closed by trailing stop. Position closing prices may differ, depending on the speed of order execution on the broker side.
