The system scalps short profits on the market. It focuses only on the night hours to open an order. We decided to check it out from time to time. So, we saw the losses on the chart and figured out that it’s the right time to write a review.
What is behind FX Zipper?
The presentation is short but after a detailed analysis of the system we could gather some info that is not provided on the official dev’s website.

- The robot closes orders asap if the market is against them.
- It works with a scalping strategy.
- We can expect to get 6-12 pips averagely.
- The robot cuts out money from the rough market moves.
- We can expect that an order will be on the market for seven hours.
- We have a feature “postpones the opening of a trade by signal if it has become unprofitable due to a sharp price increase, requotes, or a fleeting increase of spread.”
- We have to work with the system on the ECN account only.
- We may use the system on a VPS service.
