Amount of lots per every 10,000 of free margin (risk)
This parameter is the risk factor. If the free margin on your account is 10,000.00 USD and if you set this parameter to 0.3, the EA will open per default a position of 0.3 lot.
All EAs have losses, if you choose a high value, your trading will be riskier. If you choose a lower value, your trading will be safer, but the gains may not compensate for losses. An optimum value can be selected between 0.3 and 0.5.
Martingale: Max levels (0: disable)
You can select the maximum level for the martingale (0 to 7). For each position, the EA set a virtual limit order ‘x’ pips above or under the price. This value is defined by “Delta for limit order” parameter until the maximum number of levels is reached or if the volume exceeds the “Volume max” parameter. Good results are obtained with a max martingale level greater than or equal to ˜5™.
This parameter defines the coefficient of the martingale. The martingale will be increased with this value: first step, volume = 0.3, second step, volume = 0.3 x 1.6 = 0.48, total volume will be : 0.3 + 0.48 = 0.78 lots, and so on.
Martingale: Delta for limit orders
This parameter determines the price where the virtual limit order will be set.
Martingale: Activation range if HI/LO detected
If the limit order is not reached but a fractal HI/LO is detected the martingale will be activated if prices are within a range defined by this value.
Trailing Stop Start Level (ticks)
The trailing stop maintains a stop loss at a precise distance below (long position) or above (short position) the market price. This stop loss is adjusted continually based on fluctuations in the market price. If you start the trailing stop as soon as the position become profitable, you will never do substantial gains.
