IndEX EA drives trading signals based on the relative strength of a currency compared to other currencies.
For this purpose the EA calculates a strength index for EUR, USD, GBP, JPY and CHF taking into account ten different currency pairs. Based on the indices trading signals for the combination of these currencies are generated, however, not all potential currency pairs are actually tradable. The idea is to filter out the price action of the single currency pair by using the aggregated data of the indices to only trade significant price movements.
IndEX EA uses a take profit limit of 600 pips and a stop loss limit of 100 pips. Positions are often closed before these limits are reached. Based on the backtests the risk-reward-ratio is about 1:1.3 with a hit ratio of 45%.
The EA comes with a money management and can also be trade with a fixed lot size.
A Monte-Carlo-Simulation, based on backtests (2009-2018), with a lot size of 0.10, a starting balance of EUR 5,000 and 100,000 iterations, shows the following results regarding expected profits, expected drawdowns and the derived value at risk. Here the value at risk is expressed as the drawdown which is expected with a probability of 95% and 99% respectively not to be exceeded.
|Period||Profit||Drawdown||Value at Risk|
Based on the stop loss limit, the underlying strategy and the cost of the EA the starting balance should not be below 5,000.00 EUR.
