Trend Catcher Metatrader 4 Forex Robot

The Trend Catcher Metatrader 4 Forex Robot is an algorithmic trading software that uses three Moving Averages (200 period, 50 period, and 25 period) and the Parabolic SAR indicator as its default input variables for opening and exiting market orders in autopilot mode.

The EA has a martingale system added to it while the lot size is calculated in percent from a deposit based on the stop loss.

The set of logic that is used to trigger a buy signal entails the current price rising above the point of Parabolic SAR indicator current candle.

A sell trigger is initiated if the current price is below the point of Parabolic SAR indicator on its most recent candle.
