There is an other way to eliminate spread. Instead of opening buy/sell stop orders, ea can track bid price and when price touches one of your levels, ea open a market order.

So this prevents unwanted entries caused by high spread.

Thank you

If it's an ecn broker, spread has to be lower than 0.3.

If you don't pay commission, which means commission is included in the spread, maximum 0.8 is tolerable.

An EurUsd spread which is higher than these values means just one thing. Your broker is trying to screw you.

If it's an ecn broker, spread has to be lower than 0.3. (max 0.2)

If you don't pay commission, which means commission is added to the spread, maximum 0.8 is tolerable.

An EurUsd spread which is higher than these values means just one thing. Your broker is trying to screw you.

I am not recomending to use this strategy if you have spread 1-2 on your broker.
because this way you easily get lose or touch the SL.

TOday is a lost day.
open first and second trade, both trades lost today.

eventhough its cheaper but with this strategy, and your big spread, you can easily touch SL means you can lose more than you get.

I find ActivTrades super good.. low spreads, fast withdrawals, been running since 2001, regulated, and 24/7 support.

You can open a demo without a live account.

They are based in the UK.

Hi Zen

Yup loser day today but no big deal as system has delieverd a run of wins. To be expected. Could be tight market ahead of Fed Minutes at 2pm (US). The ATR had closed right into 11 this morning and I nearly didn't put the trades on because of this. Lesson for future maybe?

Has anyone managed to backtest this system using Amibroker? www.TrueFx.com offers free tick data for those who can code Amibroker and are able to test. This would be useful as by changing the candle times we could target the best performing hour (as you know I trade the US using this system 1.5hrs after the equity open, so 1600 UK time candle close. EurUsd not great at this time, but Eurjpy performs much better, albeit with 1.1pip spread - offset by larger ATR.)

I notice you recommend ACTIV TRADES . I'm thinking of changing my broker. I'm currently with ETX , the spread for EUR/USD is min 0.6 and average is 0.81. but Leverage is only 1.200,
I have look at ACTIV site and noticed the spread was better AND the leverage WAS 1.400
I would like to know if you've open a real account. And now you've found them with withdrawals. And do they mind you scalping.
I would appreciate any advice,
thank you.

Zen, taking the second recovery trade with triple lot size is not a good idea.

Now, you need 6 consecutive wins in a row .

One trade per day is more than enough.

Actually for this kind of strategy i recomended a broker which has less than 0.5 pips , because sometimes if you use BE +1 at 8 pips even 0.1, or 0.2 pips do counts. it keeps you on the trade, if your trade is too big, then its easier to get kick out of trade.
I myself use icmarkets. the spread for eurusd pair is 0 pips, sometimes 0.1 or 0.2 (mostly is 0 or 0.1 pips) which is very good.
the leverage is bigger , can use 1:500 .
so i think you can try to open the demo/real account.
You can use this link to open the account.

(using the link will give you discount rate on the commision)

Hope it can helps .
