Features of the trading strategy
According to the method of Hilbert Raff, two channels are calculated. One channel is built on a higher timeframe, it recognizes a global trend. The second channel is built on a lower timeframe, it recognizes the current trend and determines the boundaries of the trading corridor. Transactions are allowed only in the direction in which the directions of both Raff channels coincide. Inside the fast Raff channel, John Bollinger Channel is being built, trading operations are performed in it. Transactions are concluded from one border of the channel in the direction of the other border, and only in the direction of global and local trends. Thus, most of the positions are closed with a profit. Unprofitable positions are averaged by additional transactions, which are calculated so that their aggregate is also closed with a profit. When trading, virtual targets are invisible by the broker. In case of technical failures, real protective targets are provided.
Recommendations for use
No indicators are required for the operation of the robot, all the necessary algorithms are contained in a single file of the robot. To control the operation of the robot, you can use the additional indicator Raff Channel indicator. The Bollinger indicator is included in the MT4 terminal kit. The parameters of the indicators should be set as the corresponding input parameters of the robot. The Raffa indicator showing the channel on the higher timeframe, it is desirable to set on a separate chart, where the higher timeframe is specified.
The optimal set files for some currency pairs are listed on the discussion page of this robot. The robot can be optimized to work on any currency pairs and timeframes.
