11.03.15 NEW PRODUCT RELEASE - SIX MONTHLY ROLLING PIVOTS

We are pleased to announce the release of a new six monthly rolling pivots MT4 indicator. This new product calculates the previous six months of pivot data and overlays them on any chart in MetaTrader 4. The trader can set up price action/pivot alerts and receive emails and/or on-screen popup alerts when price action comes within a specified proximity (in pips) of the target six monthly level. The indicator also gives the trader the option to plot last year's high and low on the chart.



A lot of traders are completely unaware of how important these long term pivot levels actually are - they only use Daily/Weekly and at best monthly pivots in their trading strategy. We have a quarterly pivots system as well as the six monthly version and they both add significant value to a trader's tool portfolio.

If you're unaware or not using long range pivots in your trading strategy.... you are missing a seriously important piece of the jigsaw!

20.04.14 ALL FX ALGOTRADER PRODUCTS BUILD 600 COMPLIANT

All products in the FX AlgoTrader portfolio now have an installer for MetaTrader build 600 or higher. Clients running pre 600 versions of MetaTrader also have access to pre 600 installers in the license management area

15.02.14 METATRADER MT4 BUILD 600 PATCHES RELEASED

We are delighted to announce we are now releasing stable Build 600 plus pathces for FX AlgoTrader products. Please contact us for more details on how to migrate to Build 600 and upwards

11.02.14 METATRADER MT4 BUILD 600 UPWARDS

Last week MetaQuotes released Build 600 and upwards of MT4. The new build uses a modified file structure to previous releases and also has a new compiler which is stricter than the previous version. Customers who update their MT4 build to 600 or higher will almost certainly find pre-build 600 indicators and EAs will no longer work. This is especially true if the EAs or indicators access library files or DLLs.

Nobody was given any notice about this fairly radical change to an MT5 file structure so we are working hard at creating a 600 patch for our existing customers. If you would like to work with us in testing the new build 600 patches please get in touch. We can do remote access sessions from 09:00-18:00 GMT...

13.09.13 PLATINUM AUTO TRENDLINE UPDATE

Dear Platinum customers,

(Update links sent privately)

This is an important update as there was a bug in the old version on the server which was preventing trades from executing. The installer link above will stay active for the next couple of days so please download your installer and back it up.

There are also some updates to the interface as you will see.

Could I request  customers who are experiencing issues with the system first check their basic set up before reporting potential bugs. For example please make sure the Platinum EA is running on the chart you are trying to auto trade from. The bug in the recent version was actually introduced by us accidentally in an attempt to solve a reported problem to do with trendlines not showing  up in the trendline dropdown box in java….. we changed the refresh frequency on the global variable scan function to try and resolve the reported issue but this actually injected the bug as GVARs were being deleted too quickly from the table with the corresponding trendline control files….. hence no trades and a warning in the experts tab saying “Cannot delete Trendline xyz  etc”. If you’ve seen any output like this in your experts tab you are running the version with the bug in it.

In terms of the installation process….. one or two  customers have been experiencing a lot of problems with file locking when they run the installer. When you come to install its important to do some basic housekeeping. To get a clean install without any problems please make sure:-

  • You exit the Platinum Java interface before closing MT4 – so click the close button in the top right hand corner of the Platinum Main Interface…  here

1
This will close down the Java threads which manage the interface.

  • Now close MT4
  • You are now ready to install
  • If the installer gives an error message mid way through there’s a possibility you could have a ghost MT4 image still in memory – go to the windows task manager and look for a file called “Terminal.exe” – if you see it close it…. It will look like this:-

2

  • If you still get a sticky installer – ie an error mid way through – make sure there are no java processes running. Look for any images with “java.exe*”  - close them (End Process)… they will look like this:-

3

  • Make sure you’re running the system on a licensed MT4 account and also make sure you enter the correct Ref number.
  • Another tip…. If you can’t get the interface to load after the installation – run the script called “Recover Platinum GUI” in your MT4 scripts folder – to run the script just click it and drag it onto your chart. The script deletes the file called “Platinum_Active.csv” in the MT4 files folder – if Platinum wasn’t shut down properly in the last session this file will still be present in the file system – so the interface won’t load as it already thinks the system is active.
  • Please don’t try and install the software on another machine by moving files around – it simply won’t work – you ALWAYS need to use the installer.

As always, we absolutely welcome suggestions for modifications and improvements and obviously bug/performance reports…. However, please check the basics before you report a bug  - make sure the EAs are running on all your charts and simplify your set ups to test your logic before you report potential issues. Sometimes clients have so much going on in their MT4 platform they literally can’t see the wood from the trees. The more charts you try to trade from the more potential for error and confusion. So if you are experiencing problems with any MT4 software – it’s a good idea to take things back to basics – load one chart and check your set up. Then work through the functions in the EA/indicator etc… then if that’s OK load the software on a second chart and so on.  …… I saw one ‘trader’ with over 1000 indicators on his platform!!!!… he was literally obsessed with collecting indicators and reciting fanciful stories about how so and so made $$$$$$$ using them……. He wasn’t an FX AlgoTrader customer I’m pleased to say J

Please let me know if you have any problems

Happy auto trading

10.09.13 SIGNAL SERVICE UPDATE(STOCHASTICS)

You can now also track Fast and Slow Stochastic levels as well as crossovers. See the screenshot below which shows a signal set up for EURUSD H1 Crossing UP providing the Stochastic value is less than 20. If you layer in ADX data on the longer timeframes you are starting to create an effective entry  system. I am also thinking about MA analysis such as rising and falling filters as well as a triple stacked SMA options ie 10SMA>20SMA>50SMA etc. These are good for trend detection.

Dear Signal Subscribers,

I’ve added some additional functionality the service which is as follows:-

  • 50/200 SMA Crossover Detection
  • High Low Breaks for previous Day’s High/Low, previous Week’s High/Low and previous Month’s High/Low
  • Added an email change option in the active signals page so users can target another email address rather than the one they subscribed with
  • Added a Reset button in the Active Signals Page which allows the signal to be reset once triggered. After being reset the signal gets re-submitted to the CRON service which scan the real time data for entry conditions.
  • Added a real time data feed into the Alert Add screen under the ‘Data Value’ column on the far right hand side – there is a ‘flicker’ on the data as you will see and I’m looking into ways to remove this.
  • The inclusion of conditional logic using JQuery on the Alert Add and Edit pages – this now loads the appropriate controls for each filter in order to lead the user into selecting the correct criteria.

 

Next steps… broaden the universe of trackable asset classes – some of you are interested in stocks so I will implement all the CFD stock data which reflects the current market prices for a wide range of quoted stocks.

Medium terms plans are to create profiles of backtested strategies so that traders can deploy a pre-defined set of filters and associated settings which statistically backtest favourably. I also plan to include some of the FX AlgoTrader client side product data such as Index Gain analysis, shorter term breakout statistics and possibly pattern recognition based on Japanese Candlesticks. Some of you have expressed an interest in Stat Arb data but I’m not entirely sure how to include this as it requires two assets for computation.

Please let me know what you think of the changes. If you would like any additions etc please drop me a line.

TIP: When you first load the service – don’t press F5 (page refresh) until the auto refresh has completed. The Active Signals page auto refreshed every 30 seconds so as to pick up any signals which have triggered. I will endeavour to render this data using AJAX in the future which will remove the page refresh requirement which is a little bit ugly.

Please check any signal emails you receive against the data on your trading platform to ensure the integrity of the data. I’ve made a LOT of changes to the underlying code in the last few days so I am sure you will find areas which need improvement.

This is early days for this service but I am very optimistic about how powerful we can collectively make it. Essentially I very much value the opinion of early adopters.

Thank you for your custom, feedback and patience to date.

Regards

02.01.11 TRIAL SOFTWARE WITHDRAWN DUE TO ILLEGAL DISTRIBUTION

Unfortunately the idiots who insist on decompiling the FX AlgoTrader source code won't give up. We've spent a lot of time removing illegal software from various download sites and we are taking steps to take legal action against those responsible. With great regret we have made a decision to discontinue the free 7 day trials of our products - so a minorty of morons have ruined it for the majority of decent people!

If people spent more time learning how to trade they would easily be able to afford quality forex software and we could spend our time developing more products rather than trying to close down illegal download sites!

Some of the offenders were stupid enough to use the same email address on their forum postings as they used to download the software trial from our website....

We intend to replace the software trials with a series of in depth demonstration videos for each product.

30.11.10 REAL TIME CORRELATION INDICATOR RELEASED

The FX AlgoTrader Real-Time Correlation Indicator provides real time correlation data on MT4 charts for upto 30 FX pairs in real-time. The indicator will return the correlation data for the current chart timeframe ie hourly charts return 60 minute correlation data - 5 minute charts return 5 minute correlation data. The indicator uses a custom library function which calculates Pearson correlation data on the fly which is then passed back to the Correlation indicator for display. The algorithm uses data over 200 periods.

The FX AlgoTrader Real-Time Correlation Indicator provides the following trader definable external input paramters which allow customisation and fine tuning. These parameters are:-

  • EURUSD,EURJPY,GBPCAD,
    GBPAUD,NZDCHF,GBPUSD,
    GBPCHF,CADCHF,AUDCHF,
    NZDJPY,USDCHF,GBPJPY,
    CADJPY,AUDJPY,AUDNZD,
    USDJPY,CHFJPY,AUDCAD,
    EURNZD,NZDCAD,EURGBP,
    USDCAD,AUDUSD,NZDUSD,
    XAUUSD,EURCHF,EURCAD
    EURAUD,GBPNZD,XAGUSD

  • Customizable display options including:-
    • Trader defined positive and negative correlation thresholds

    • Define colours for pairs which meet correlation threshold requirements

    • Show only positively/negatively correlated pairs which exceed threshold

    • Define which pairs are submitted to the correlation calculation engine - allows the trader to customize the size of the correlation table. Program dynamically resizes table and data output.

    • Set colours for positive/negative/uncorrelated and 100% correlated pairs

    • Works with any MT4 account ie Standard, mini and micro. For mini and micro accounts some brokers use a suffix at the end of the pair data eg EURUSDgfx. The 'Pair Suffix' external input parameter allows any suffix to be added to allow full mini/micro account compatability.
  • 30.11.10 STAT ARB TIPS AND TRICKS

    Dear Stat Arb Customers,

    I thought I’d tell you about some product development which may be of interest to you. The current Stat Arb V2 engine is a passive system in that the hard work is selecting which currency pairs to arb. Several of you have suggested a system where an EA auto selects an arbitrage candidate pool which can then be fed into an EA so that it can trade in a fully automated fashion. Obviously there will be a comprehensive set of controls and filters which the trader would pre-define.

    The good news is I’ve developed the real time correlation calculation engine and also the filtering system. Some screen shots are below – the next steps are to develop a new EA which can take the candidate pool and auto trade it – this is the hard part!

    Some other ideas for improvements have been:-

    • Aggregated profit controls – where the EA aims to make a defined profit from
      multiple arbs in a day – once the profit is achieved all current positions would
      be closed and the system would sleep until the next day or overnight session.
    • Scaling options to allow multiple trades to be pyramided if the spread continued
      to diverge from the mean by x STDs. Effectively an averaging down process
      but not without risk…. LTCM!
    • Ability to trade negatively correlated pairs
    • Email alerts and position updates based at a defined frequency
    • Stationary spread analysis tools – the current version has an option
      called ‘Mean Delta Filter’ – when this was developed the idea was to try and
      identify stationary spreads – ie spreads which are pretty flat (not going up or down)
      – you tend to get these when there isn’t a lot of liquidity in the market ie during
      the Asian session. I am not particularly happy with the current mean delta
      filter option and I know most of you don’t use it as it’s too selective.
      This is an area I am particularly interested in developing.

    I would be interested in any additional ideas or suggestions for improvement
    – let me know your thoughts.

    I’m also considering setting up an arbitrage trading community on the website
    where arb traders can exchange ideas. Is this something you would be interested in?

    I’ve also put together a few short cuts and frequently asked questions about
    the current version which may help you get more out of the product. This is by no
    means an exhaustive list – just the most front of mind things…..

    • Set up arb charts quickly – the Setup.exe program automatically installs a
      template called “STARB” – if you click ‘Charts’/’Templates’ and then select
      STARB you will get the EA, the STD indicator and the Price Trace indicators
      loaded automatically. The defaults settings are EURUSD and AUDUSD so
      you’ll need to change these.
    • The GVAR table – when the EA opens arb positions it loads a global variable
      onto the global variable table. The variable will be called ‘Pair1/Pair2 Filled’
      and will have a value of 1. So if you traded EURUSD and AUDUSD the global
      variable will be called EURUSD/AUDUSD. If you manually close arb trades
      during testing or when you’re live you must DELETE the global variable
      otherwise the system will not make any additional trades – it will think the
    • arb position is still filled. To access the GVAR table press F3 and then select
      the appropriate GVAR and delete it.
    • Mean Delta Filter – leave it set to false – it needs more work.
    • www.mataf.net  - this website has a pretty good correlation analysis area
      under the tools section – I have created a similar tool which runs as an indicator
      in MT4 and supplies real time correlation data based on trader defined pairs.
      I will release this shortly for traders who like everything in the MT4 environment.
    • Avoid false trades when you launch the system – Try turning your EAs off
      (the sad face in the top right hand corner!) when you set up arb charts –
      this will allow the system  to settle down and pull the chart data from the
      brokers server if you don’t have it locally. Once you’ve got a decent looking
      STD indicator spread trace and you’re happy with the STD multiple then
      activate the EA (smiley face in top right corner!) Also keep an eye on the experts tab
      in the terminal window – if you see a zero divide error it means you haven’t
      got enough chart data on your terminal.
    • Set realistic defined profit targets – if you are trying to make cash from trading
    • on 5 minute charts (not easy!) you need a stationary spread and very realistic
      profit targets ie 2-5 pips – you also need to be able to manually kill trades which
      don’t work out. Short term arbing is normally easier during the overnight Asian
      session due to low liquidity but if you stay in the market too long the spread can
      become mobile as the western markets start coming on line. This is where a short term
      arb can leave you high and dry if you stay in the trade.
    • Longer term arb trades are a lot safer but you also need to consider the fundamentals
      depending on your trading timeframes. I think the  EURUSD/GBPUSD breakdown
      presented some pretty good opportunities on the recouple. I didn’t trade it though!

    10.09.09 TRENDLINE AUTO TRADE MODULE INDEX COMPATIBLE

    We have just finished some code modifications to the current automated trendline trading package so that it can trade Indexes. The indexes on the MT4 platform are CFD based with minimum lot sizes of 1. The modified Automated Trendline Trader has manual input options to fix lot sizing on smaller accounts and therefore enable access to Indexes and non FX assets. The standard position sizing algorithm is based on a maximum risk volatility algorithm.

    We are pleased to announce the release of the flaghsip Daily Pivots indicator modules. The new system has nine price proximity alerts (one for every pivot levels) and has the same time shiftable pivot calculation basis as V2 along with variable line styling options.

    Editors note: Daily Pivots V2 Alert Plus has now been replaced with the Daily Pivots V3 Indicator. For details visit: Full range S3-R3 Daily Pivots indicator for Metatrader MT4.

    30.03.09 - NEW EXCEL INTERFACE FOR METATRADER MT4

    We are please to announce we are in the final stages of testing with a new Excel based interface for FX AlgoTrader Modules. Initially we have built the interface to work with the Daily Pivots Module but it will roll out to other products fairly quickly. We have found that using Excel as the primary interface for configuring custom indicators and expert advisers provides a far higher degree of usability compared to the standard MT4 parameters which are only accessible on the indicator or EA tabs. In terms of adjusting a pivot alert for price action the Excel interface is substantially quicker and easier to use than the conventional MT4 parameter based approach. We have attached a sample of the Excel/MT4 Pivots Interface below. For further details please Contact Us.
