    Default MA Filter for this EA

    I would really like to be able to trade the attached EA above or below a moving average so that it will only trade in direction of the trend.


    kind regards Pat

    Look at the attachment,
    This can trade for days picking up trades in the wrong direction. I cant get it to make a profit but it will draw down the account ok unless I set it to trade LONG ONLY or SHORT ONLY In the direction of the trend. Wont you get the same problem in a ranging market with or without a filter for trend direction. The problem is that this EA trades a basket [you need to look at the thread] and you cant manually controll each currency pair for trend, it needs to be done in the EA.

    Thanks for responding surtyoday and I hope you can help. Here is the link

    Hourly Trade EA

    ps Not all pairs may be ranging at the same time and I think this has some good potential.
