Sentry Expert Advisor

A new way to trade spikes! Sophisticated algorithm scalps like nothing else! Sentry works by bracketing volatility retracements. NOT the initial spike.

It works like this, if the market moves one direction quickly and then retraces (pulls back) a certain amount within a certain amount of time, Sentry places a pending BUYSTOP order above the high and a pending SELLSTOP order below the low. If one is filled the other gets cancelled using OCO orders (Order Cancels Order).

The logic is based around HFT (High Frequency Trading) algos and fast traders causing the first spike (after high impact news, break of support or resistance, big round number, trend line, etc..) and then taking quick profits (within seconds) which causes the initial retracement. Then immediately following the post-news traders and fundamentalists jump in and make the “real” move. Statistically if the high -or- the low of the initial volatility bar is broken, the trade will run for at least a few pips, more than 65% of the time (depending on settings).

The best part about trading spikes this way is we are avoiding the highest volatility moments, the initial push, when all the slippage, spread widening, re-quotes, bad fills, and broker manipulation happens. By avoiding the initial push with all the HFT algos and lack of liquidity (which causes slippage), we are taking much safer entries. Two stage spread filtering ensures entries are only taken during times with the highest statistical probability for profit.

Developed on the 1 Minute Time Frame EURUSD data. We only use the highest quality tick data and live testing for development. Many options and safety. Lifetime updates included.
