Hello all traders,
I made this trade manager as a way to handle my swing trading. It has adjustable features that i am steadily working on.
It handles multiple trades and pairs at once along with dropping sell/ buy pending orders in a grid of your choosing. 3.0 version.
4.0 version has pending drop orders at PIVOT levels.
It was hard to find something that that met my needs.
So i made one myself.
Hope FF can make some use out of it while making it better
I am always working on it but if anyone else wants to try it out and give me some feed back that be great.
Its free so work with me so I can make it better. I am actively using it myself on a demo account and live account.
Running this back testing will not work as it runs on the timer on your CPU and not off Tick events FYI..If you want to test this put it on a demo account to test its functions before real money is used or use the TESTER version I created.
USE THIS TRADE MANAGER AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! TEST IT TEST IT TEST IT before real money duh!!!
The close buttons are operational and everything is working as designed. Here is the new version. 2.0(41)
Found a few issues with pending orders. Also cleaned up some button operation. version 2.0(47)
Well you fix on thing find another. Nothing major but the trailing stop didn't seem to be right. It trailed but i didn't like it. Now i can see that its trailing and there is no delay. version 2.0 (53)
Here is the new update with just some fine tuning and better layout. version 3.0
I also put the "BACK TEST" version up as well.
I just put up the back test version of the 3.0. So far all is working well.
DON'T USE THIS ON A LIVE ACCOUNT. IT IS NOT THE SAME SETUP. BACK TEST ONLY!!!! Its the .ex4 labeled "TRADE MAN 3.0 TESTER"
Just put up the 4.0 version of this. Also included the indicator for the pivot levels but you dont need to load it on your chart. You just need to put it in your data folder. Once the EA is running and you click on one of the pivot level buttons, it will placing pending orders at them. You can adjust the offset of those orders off the pivot lines as well. Anyone who trades pivots knows that they dont always hit the pivots exactly and i like to move them around. Tester version is to follow.
Here is the newest update. Pivot points are setup for pending orders at 100/78/61/38 levels. Also i have been using the buttons with no back ground and i like it without. So you can type what font you want and the back ground color as well.
Test it on a demo 1st before real money as always!!!
If you are using Oanda they just put in a new FIFO rule that you cant set the same lot size with a stop and profit set. Has to be different lot sizes. I suggest remove your stops from the trade manager and when your pending get hit (make sure you have alerts) then add your stop loss when your in.
Found a issue with the buy buttons. Fixed and working well. New version 5.1
TRADE MAN 3.0.ex4
TRADE MAN 3.0 TESTER.ex4
TRADE MAN 4.0 TESTER.ex4
TRADE MAN 5.1.ex4
It runs on the timer on your CPU and not the tick, the only function that waits for a tick is the break even and the trailing stop.
a nice panel! thanks.
1, didn't find button of sell/buy limit? actually i set limit pending more.
2, one button could be ok for stoploss arrangement. users can adjust according to one's habit?
just a suggest.
sorry, i just find butten for limit orders. may be just change the name on the button so that to make it clearer.
Thx for the comment.
Working on a update that is not allowing the trades to be closed by the close buttons. All other functions are working great so far. Seems to be just a close issue.
The spread filter is only for the buy now buttons.
a button for pending order's all closing could be helpful? i think so. in case you want to replace them.
hi, by the way: sometimes we do need a magic number button, don't we? with different tf and pairs? i usually set it to differ sell and buy.
It runs on the timer on your CPU and not the tick???
My focus at the moment is the over all operation of the manager. I am going to start to work on the looks of it as well. I want to make the buttons easier to read and alittle more modern looking instead of the plain look it has now.
So far i have used this all day on my live account with no issues to report.
thanks. i run another sort of ea on mt4s over vps, the panel is used to open first sell/buy manually, leaving the rest job to ea then and if necessary, adjust the deals at home with laptop. just in case of confusion i used to set magic numbers for the running ea and myself.
i like your ea, it owns more function and easier to install on mt4 than other ones i ever found. hope to have the honor of having one of your final work?
thank you in advance.
I've been looking for something like this. I'll download and try it out.
Got some more updates to roll out next week. Nothing major but i am thinking the following:
-Add MOVE PD 1 or MOVE PD 2 for pending orders to move in xx pips in either direction when clicked. That way you dont have to delete the orders when prices moves the opposite way, you can keep moving them with the price. Adjustable of course
-Status messages for when buttons are clicked for operation confirmation
-Trailing stop updates to maybe have the button stay clicked until you unclick it
Anything ideas that you have feel free to post them and i will consider them into the system.
