PARKER EURUSD 1H Expert Advisor

Currency Pair:

The Parker Expert Advisor trades the EURUSD currency pair on the 1H timeframe.

Design Principles:

This robot was developed using machine learning algorithms to create a system that is extremely robust. By robustness, we mean consistent results with different broker data, solid and stable performance over many years with unseen (“out-of-sample”) data, and insensitivity to variations in system parameters (“curve fitting”).
During development a period of the past 6 years is used as historical data feed (2015 – 2021), while the backtest is performed over an extensive out-of-sample period, spanning from 2000 – 2015. So the backtests shown below include 15 years of out-of-sample data and 6 years of “known” data.

System Logic:

Robust systems typically have a simple trading logic. The Parker EA requires the Close of the most recent bar to be above its Smoothed Moving Average (Period 40) and the Stochastics Oscillator to be above 20 to determine the prevailing trend and then enters via Stop Buy or Stop Sell orders which are calculated from the previous bar´s High and the Average True Range indicator.

Trade Management:

The EA places a Stop Loss, which is dependent of the current market volatility (as measured by the Average True Range (ATR) indicator and utilizes a Profit Target of 45 Pips to exit the trade, based on the Average True Range.

Money Management:

The Parker EA is equipped with two money management options:

1. Fixed lot size:
With this money management strategy the expert advisor will trade with a fixed number of lots. This setting is typically used during the development of a new strategy as it allows to compare results between different systems. For real live trading, however, fixed lot size is not recommended since it doesn´t allow an EA to unfold its real potential by compounding profits.

2. Risk a fixed percentage of Account:
This is an advanced money management strategy that is recommended for real trading. The strategy will risk a given percentage of equity on every trade. This is a very effective money management strategy that will allow the expert advisor to increase the number of lots as the account grows. It is generally recommended to risk a maximum 2-5% of account equity per one trade.

Set “UseMoneyManagement” to false.

Set “mmLotsIfNoMM” to the Lotsize you wish (Default: 0.1 Lots).

2. Risk Fixed Percentage of your Account

This money management mode will never risk more than the percentage of your account you enter in the settings. But you will benefit of the power of compounding as the expert advisor will increase the lot size as your account grows.

Set “UseMoneyManagement” to true.

Set “mmRiskPercent” to the percentage of your account which you want to risk with any new trade. Recommended values range from 1 (low risk) to 5 (high risk).

You may set the “mmMaxLots” to any value you want. This is mainly determined by the size of your trading account and sets a maximum lot size that is being traded.
