The Reaper EA

SERVER D The Reaper EA 4.2

Forget nice looking backtests: The Reaper EA is already ahead of the curve!

Let's face the truth: The biggest problem with most of the automated trading systems on the market, is that all of them show very nice backtests, but only a handfull actually perform on live accounts.

This is very frustrating when you poured your hard earned money into them. (Not to mention the many EA's in the market, that use manipulated backtest results to sell the product... but that's another story.)

The origin of the Reaper EA is a strategy that has already proven for many years to be a winner. From there it just got better. Instead of relying on nice backtest results, "hoping" that the live results will match, this EA was developed using live trading and existing techniques as a starting point, and took it from there to make improvements.

The result so far is a very stable EA with already many months of live results to show.

This means that you'll be buying a product with a verified live track record, and not just a "nice looking backtests" EA.

QUICK SETUP: Run THIS SET on 1 EURUSD M5 chart and it will run all 14 pairs. Don't forget to fill in the suffix in the parameter.
Check out the live results here:
Since the start of the development, the EA has had multiple improvements and the current state of the EA is already a big improvement over the original first version, as you can witness in the almost 1 year of live trading results.


How to set up the EA:
  • When using AutoGMT, make sure your computer/VPS time settings are correct! (you can check this post)
  • Run on M5 only, 1 chart can run all 14 optimized pairs (OneChartSetup, EURUSD M5 recommended, don't forget to fill in suffix)
  • Optimized for 14 pairs: eurusd, gbpusd, usdchf, usdjpy, usdcad, eurjpy, eurgbp, eurchf, eurcad, euraud, gbpaud, gbpcad, gbpchf and audcad
  • It is recommended to run all these pairs to spread the risk.
  • It is recommended to use "Mode B" as it will be more stable on most brokers.
  • Mode B is more strict in entry, and uses a slightly wider Stoploss to prevent stop-outs due to spread widening.
  • Mode A has lower Stoploss and more trades, and can have very good results on brokers with a very low nightly spread.
  • I would recommend using "LotsizeStep" as AutolotMode. (automatic money management)
  • LotsizeStep values -> Low risk: 500; Medium Risk: 250; High Risk: 150
  • It is recommended to run the EA on a low spread ECN broker.
  • Minimum recommended accountsize: 250$ for running all 14 pairs, but you could run only a few pairs on 100$ as well.

Some of the features of the EA:

  • IMPORTANT: This EA only enters trades for 2 hours per day, from 1 hour before rollover, till 1 hour after rollover. For most brokers, that means from 23h marketwatch, till 1h.
  • The EA uses limit orders to enter trades. Slippage will mostly be positive on entry with this method.
  • The EA uses hard SL and TP levels, to minimize negative slippage on exit.
  • The EA will only open 1 trade per pair.
  • The EA uses multiple exit strategies, where it will limit the risk as time passes and the trades hasn't hit TP yet.
  • Safety first: this EA does NOT use grid, martingale, averaging down or any other risky trade management methods.
  • Real live results for many months already before the EA was released on MQL5.
  • The product is already in a very advanced state of development (bug-free, performance verified)
  • EA has been live tested on multiple brokers with success.
  • No set files needed. Only the Lotsize needs to be set.

DISCLAIMER: Never forget that past performance is no guarantee for the future. I always recommend to run first on demo account or very low risk live account, to understand better how the EA executes trades, and takes its profits and losses. This is to prevent having emotions of fear taking over during trading. It is very important to understand how a system works, and what are the ups and downs!
