The EA has a mobile trading panel for managing auto-trading functions and the ability to open trades manually. All trades opened by the trader in manual mode will be closed with a profit using the DD Reduce Functions settings.

Trading ofFIBO Trend EA mt5″

The EA trades according to the *FIBO Trend PRO mt5 indicator by the same author.

The indicator automatically determines the level and trend of Fibonacci retracements and places trades that follow the trend or, depending on the conditions, against the trend.

In case of reversal, positions are stacked using the martingale method, but it also has a DD Reduce function (closes the order with the oldest bad profit and loss and the order with the latest profit and loss together).

*The FIBO Trend PRO mt5 indicator is sold for a fee, but the EA itself works without problems.

Operational feasibility on other time frames

Since there was a question mark in the long-term backtesting of AUDCAD M15 and GBPJPY M15, we considered it in MT5’s “Test on all Market Watch symbols" to clarify its operational feasibility on long timeframes (M30, H1).

The test conditions are NOZAX zero account (ECN), initial balance of $ 10,000, period January 1, 2008 – December 31, 2022, parameters: initial setting (0.01 Lot / $ 10,000).



  • GBPJPY broke down in the middle of both the M30 and H1 time frames. As for AUDCAD, it may be able to hold up if it is operated on H1. If you are conducting multi-currency trading, you may want to consider the time frame along with the selection of currency pairs and setting the allowable drawdown level.
