GridZilla forex robot is a fully automated EA that uses a proprietary grid algorithm based on common inherent properties of Forex cross currency pairs. The main focus while developing the EA was maximal generalization to avoid a typical grid systems problem of overfitting to market data. To do that, the genetic annealing algorithm was used together with walk-forward optimization on over 100 years (!) of market data
The EA was developed using a walk-forward optimization methodology with in-sample data of only one cross currency pair (AUDCAD), using quotes for the other 5 pairs as out-of-sample data. That allowed us to use the same algorithm and the same optimization parameters for all traded cross pairs, thus solving the overfitting problem. So, instead of using generally useless Monte Carlo tests, EA’s robustness was proven in real trading for over 100 years of market M1 data, as well as on 60+ years of real tick data with variable spreads
Built-in proprietary general grid algorithm that is working the same way on all traded cross pairs, solving the problem of overfitting
Very stable growth curve, as a result of using smart algorithmic generalization together with classical market research
THE ONLY grid system that can pass tests on 100+ years of real historical data with the same parameters being used without any reoptimization
The same algorithm works at MT4, as well as MT5 – try it out now!
Easy setup and use – just set the lot size you want to use, and it is done
Currency pairs: AUDCAD, AUDNZD, NZDCAD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, GBPCHF
Each pair should be run on a separate chart with a unique magic number!
Recommended minimum deposit – $1000
Minimum leverage – 1:100
Recommended leverage – 1:500
StartLotSize – proportional lot size if EnableAutoLot=true and fixed lot size in case EnableAutoLot=false
EnableAutoLot – trading lot will increase with an increase in your account’s balance
FundsForAutoLot – here you can set the amount of balance to be used for every StartLotSize if EnableAutoLot=true. E.g.FundsForAutoLot=1000 and StartLotSize=0.05 means that for every $1000 there will be 0.05 lots opened
MaxLotSize – set the maximum allowed lot size if you don’t want the lot size ever to exceed this value
EquityStopLoss% – the EA will close all open positions when account equity falls to the specified percentage of the account balance
MaxNumberOpenPosition – if the maximum number of open positions exceeds this value, then the EA will not open a new trade. This option works as a filter. Set it to 0 if you want to disable this feature.
SpreadFilterPips – if the spread is bigger than the value specified here, the trade won’t be opened
MaxSlippagePips – works only for Instant live accounts (not ECN). Set here what maximum slippage you can take on your Instant account
GMT/DST_Offset_Auto – if true, the EA will try to find the correct GMT offset of your broker automatically. You must allow requests to https://www.worldtimeserver.com (Tools -> Options -> Expert Advisors -> Allow WebRequests for listed URL)
GMT_Offset(winter)_Manual – set your broker’s time zone (in winter)
DaylightSavingTime_Manual – if your broker uses daylight saving time, set it to true
OrderTakeProfitPips – the size of Take Profit in pips (1 pip = 10 points)
OrderStopLossPips – the size of Stop Loss in pips
GridMaxTrades – maximum number of averaging trades
GridMultiplier – averaging coefficient
GridStepPips – step in pips between averaging trades
GridCustomSettings – custom averaging coefficients separated by commas
BasicMagicNumber – add Magic number to trace trades you made with this EA. It must be less than 99999!
TradeComment – add any comments to your trades
