SERIOUS WARNING
  • Most Forex traders lose all their money.
  • Using the robot posted here in trading Forex does not guarantee success.
  • Trading this robot could lead to serious financial loss.
  • Trading this robot without understanding its underlying trading strategies guarantees traders will lose their money.
  • This is not a set-and-forget ea; there is no such thing and anyone who tries to claim there is, is either stupid or lying. This ea requires frequent manual intervention.
  • At best, a trading robot is only 90% as good as the manual strategy it trades. At best. At worst, it can be much less effective. If the strategy is rubbish, so is the robot.
  • To trade this robot, you have to understand:

MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS POST http://www.stevehopwoodforex.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=111241#p111241 There was a Forex bloodbath on Jan 15th 2015 that you need to know about.


You need the "SPB core library.mqh" file in your platform's Include folder. Download it from SteveHopwood @ Slopey Peaky Bob


Rangy makes a note of the daily open price, then measures the ATR. Rangy trades:
  • Buys when the setup is long and the market has fallen by the ATR from the daily open.
  • Sells when the setup is short and the market has risen by the ATR from the daily open.

The inputs:
  • EveryTickMode reads ATR and the open of each new TradingTimeFrame candle. Set this to 'true' if you want bang up to date values.
  • TtfAtrPeriod is the same as entering the 'Period' input when dragging the indi onto your chart.
  • TtfAtrMultiplier: most people use multiples of the 'raw' ATR values. This input allows you to do this. Enter 0.5 to use 50% of ATR. Enter 1.25 to use 125% of ATR, and so on.
  • CloseAtDailyOpen tells Rangy to close trades when the market has returned to the daily open price.

Rangy will only send a LONG/SHORT signal to TDesk when the market has moved ATR pips away from the DO. It will send a FLAT signal until then.

Idiotic bloop alert

Postby SteveHopwood » Mon Jul 01, 2019 2:51 pm

I just loaded Rangy onto my vps. He cheerfully started sending baskets of trades and then immediately deleting some pairs, then loading and deleting them repeatedly. Just whip over to your demo before reading on, and disable EA's so you do not annoy your broker.

I found the bloop as soon as I looked. It is fixed in post 1.

This is an easy DIY.

Go to: bool lookForTradeClosure(int ticket, int pairIndex)

Scroll down a few lines to:
if (betterOrderSelect(ticket, SELECT_BY_TICKET) && OrderCloseTime() > 0) return(true);

Add this underneath:
getBasics(OrderSymbol() );

Do a search for:
if (atrVal[pairIndex] >= dailyOpen[pairIndex])

Replace it with:
if (ask >= dailyOpen[pairIndex])

Do a search for:
if (atrVal[pairIndex] <= dailyOpen[pairIndex])

Replace it with:
if (bid <= dailyOpen[pairIndex])

Oops. :oops:
