What is behind the NorthEastWay EA?
This EA can trade in multiple pairs using a single chart setup. It is not sensitive to spread, slippage, or other variables related to the broker. The vendor recommends using it on recommended pairs only and to test the multi-currency mode of the MT5 tester to test its performance.
There is an automatic money-management functionality that allows it to automatically calculate the lot sizes. There are two automatic money-management settings, namely conservative and aggressive. It also has a recovery mode where it closes a series of orders in profit.
The base currency pairs for this EA are AUD/NZD, AUD/CAD, and NZD/CAD. It can also trade in additional pairs like EUR/GBP, EUR/CAD, GBP/CAD, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/CAD. The vendor recommends loading the EA on M15 charts. According to the developer, you should have leverage of 1:200 or more. Based on the risk level, you should use a minimum balance of $1000 or $5000.
This EA uses a 100% automated pullback trading system which works well for pullback pairs like NZD/CAD, AUD/NZD, and AUD/CAD. The strategy is based on the assumption that the price returns to a certain level after experiencing a sharp movement in any direction.
Unfortunately, the vendor has not shared the historical test results for this EA. Backtests are conducted using several years’ worth of market data, thus revealing the robustness of the system. Without them, it becomes difficult for us to see whether the system was well tested pre-release and whether it had good profitability in the past.
The current price of this expert advisor is $9987. Compared to other EAs, it is extremely expensive. Although there is a free demo version for testing purposes, you don’t have the protection of a money-back guarantee.
