One of the most popular, practical and at the same time simplest indicators is the MACD indicator. As the name implies, the MACD is actually an oscillator to show the relationship between two moving averages.
This tool is used to identify moving averages that represent a new trend (whether ascending or descending). Our main priority in trading is to be able to find these trends, because the most profit is made in the trends.
Using Frustrader’s MACD ST Expert, transactions based on MACD strategy can be managed semi-automatically.

MACD Strategy Expert is a Semi-Automatic trading Expert that is for those who use the MACD-based trading strategy.

  • Strategy Method: The MACD Strategy Expert works in five Strategy Methods: 1.EnterLevel 2.ExitLevel 3.SignalCross_Level 4.MaxMin_Level 5.Follow The Trend

1.EnterLevel:In this strategy, positioning is based on Entering the sales or buy saturation area.

2.ExitLevel: In this strategy, positioning is based on Exiting the sales or buy saturation area.

3.SignalCross_Level : In this strategy, the positioning method is based on crossing MACD & signal line.

4.MaxMin_Level: This strategy, takes a buy or sell position based on leaving minimum or maximum MACD levels.

5.Follow The Trend: This strategy, which is less practical than other strategies, takes a buy or sell position based on entering higher or lower values of the trend line (level 50). (below-up or up-below)

Based on Selected Strategy Method, Fast EMA, Slow EMA, MACD SMA & Upper/Lower level input can be entered.

Applied Price includes: Close Price, Open Price, High Price, Low Price, Medium Price, Typical Price and Weighted Price. Each of these options can be selected for the price of expert positioning. Also its possible to select different MA types (Simple, Exponential, Smoothed & Linear Weighted) at MA Method section.

  • Select Trade Mode: In the Select Trade Mode section, the type of position that the expert can take is specified.
    In this section, the drop-down menu includes off mode, long position, short position and short and long position.
    If the off option is selected in this section, the expert will not make any trades and will not interfere in open positions.
    Our suggestion is that if you do not want to use Expert at a specific time, instead of deleting it, select the “Off” option so that you do not have to make all the settings again the next time you use Expert.
  • Select Execution Mode: In the Select Execution Mode section, the type of Candle Confirmation for Expert to take action is specified. There is two options: Candle Close Confirmation & Close Breakout. If the execution Mode is set on Candle Close Confirmation, the position will be Opened after Candle closes in the first turning point according to the client strategy. In Close Breakout Mode, the position will be Opened  after two confirmations. First turning point candle must be closed and the second candle also have to continue the same Direction and hit more than 10% length of the previous candle (first turning candle) till the position will be opened.

In close-break out mode, the position may be taken a little later and part of the profit may be lost. But it is also more reliable and produces fewer false signals.

As seen in the image below, in close break out mode, the price must hit as much as 10% of the signal candle length in the corresponding direction.

 

  • Lot Volume: In this part, the volume of trades in lots is given by the client to the expert, in order to open a position with that volume.
  • Stop Loss: In this part, the amount of loss that the position closes if it happens is determined in pips.
  • Take Profit: In this part, the amount of profit that the position closes if it happens is determined in pips.
  • Trailing Stop: This is a dynamic stop loss that moves with the price. Frustrader suggests that the amount of trailing stop is equal to the amount of stop loss. If set to zero, it will be disabled.
  • Add Trading Days: This section specifies the days when the expert is allowed to open a position.
  • Start Hour: In this section, the time when the expert is allowed to start positioning is specified.
  • End Hour: In this section, the time when the expert must finish positioning is specified.
