    Default Time triggered EA

    Hi

    I'm looking for an EA that opens two positions at the same time every day (let's say, GMT 8:00). These two positions go both long and short on the same chart (the same currency pair). Yes they are hedging each other.

    It is a very simple EA. All I need is to set time and lots. No programing for closing -- should be manually closed.

    Does anyone know if I can find it in this site or some where else?

    Thank you very much in advance!!!

    Because this strategy alone would have no result if lots are the same, i was wondering how you intend to use it, perhaps as a part of some bigger strategy?

    Have you looked at any of the news trader EA's? some of these 'straddle' long/short, it might be worth looking into.

    Guys, thank you for the tips. I think a straddle EA may help. But it's still not simple enough. All I need to to open two hedging positions on the same chart at the same time everyday (variables are time/hour and lots only).

    Yes this is a part of a bigger system that involves manual executions. It is quite risky, but profitable. I have been doing good, but only the problem is to stay up until London opens (it is 2am where I live --TX USA).

    Is there anyone that I can ask to write this EA? (of course I pay for it).

    Thank you very much!
    Happy Trading!

    Hi funyoo,

    When time permits, could you code an extern option to disbale the hours options.

    Basically if it can be coded, let the EA place trades again and repeat the process, when both instants order (hedged) have been hit via TP, TS or SL.

    As it stands, once the 2 instants orders have been hit the EA waits until the next hour. The stop and limit orders are ok no change there.

    Cheers.
