Bird density scalper Forex Robot is a mean reversion system during the quiet hours of the day. It is similar to QuantFlow Scalper but optimized in a few ways to reduce slippage. For example, the entry logic was reduced to make the calculation faster and the exit is done via take profit orders, which can even lead to positive slippage on exiting a trade.
Additionally, it offers various paramters for optimization of entry conditions and other improvements.
It does not use martingale or grid and has a stop loss for every position.
