RayBOT derives trading signals based on support and resistance zones. One main feature of the EA is that the trading parameters are automatically updated on a fortnightly basis after conducting a walk forward analysis to adjust the EA to current market conditions.
Take profit and stop loss limits are dynamically calculated based on the volatility. The average stop loss is at 35 pips with a maximum of 200 pips. Open positions are usually closed before the stop loss limit is reached if the trend weakens or a reversal is detected. Based on the backtests the risk-reward-ratio is about 1:1.3 with a hit ratio of about 50%.
RayBOT offers money management, but can also be traded with fixed lots. The EA updates the trading parameters from the servers of the developers on a fortnightly basis, manual adjustments are not required. However, it is possible to disable automated updates to manually set the trading parameters.
A Monte-Carlo-Simulation, based on backtests (2009-2015), with a lot size of 0.01, a starting balance of EUR 1.000 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.
