How Move_Cross Expert Advisor Works ?

The Move_Cross Expert Advisor is a powerful Expert Advisor that identifies and trades in cyclical as well as trending markets. One of the advantages of this Expert Advisor is that it distinguishes both trending and cyclical markets and hence has a higher success rate since it knows when the market transitions from sideways to trending (and vice-versa) and protects profits appropriately.

The concept behind the Move_Cross Expert Advisor is using RAVI indicator (Rapid Adaptive Variance Indicator), in conjunction with break of the High and Low of the recent bars. It uses multiple time-frames, namely Daily, Hourly and 1-Minute.

How Move_Cross Expert Advisor open BUY trade/Order;

  • BUY trades are disallowed before Monday 7 am.
  • If a BUY position is already open, the rules for BUY entry are not checked.
  • If a SELL position is already open and a BUY signal is generated, then the SELL position is closed first and then the BUY trade is opened.
  • In the first step, we calculate the RAVI of 2 and 24 period Simple Moving Average (SMA) of the Open price on H1 period. If this value is less than zero, a Weightage of 10 is assigned.
  • In the second step, if the High of the previous candle and two candles ago on the Hourly chart is greater than the current Bid plus 5 pips, then the Weightage is increased by 7.
  • On the 1-minute chart, if the High of the candle is greater the current Bid plus 5 pips, then the Weightage is decreased by 50. This step is repeated for the recent 12 one-minute candles.
  • If the Close of the previous 1-minute candle is greater than the current Bid plus 5 pips, then the Weightage is increased by 50.
  • If the High of any of the recent fourteen Hourly bars is greater than current Bid plus 45 pips, then the Weightage is reduced by 50.
  • Finally, if the Weightage is greater than 50, then a BUY signal is triggered.
