Features of mt4 steps manager

1. The basis of the whole expert lies in opening the grid in pairs with the multiplication of the lot by trend and against the trend. Based on this, various features were added.

2. Opening the grid in metatrader 4 EA:
50/50 – the grid will begin to open to that side, in which the first level will be affected.
Start Up – The grid will expand levels up.
Get Down – The grid will reveal levels down.

By pressing the trend selection button.
Opening immediately after closing the grid.
By direction indicators in your terminal.
When opening a single transaction in the robot itself or in the terminal.

3. The panel of single transactions:
It is quite simple and was added to the steps manager in order to open the grid when opening a manual transaction, without resorting to other experts. It also provides more opportunities for testing strategies.
You can also use the panel for manual trading, without grids.

4. Closing:
If you chose to open the grid when opening a transaction by you or the robot.
That robot can close the grid if the original transaction was closed.
If the grid closes before the original transaction, the grid will open again.

Close or rediscover the grid if you went in the other direction.

By the number of rollback levels – in order to make a profit.

Emergency closures – At a given grid level. By drawdown in the deposit currency.

5. Locks MT4:

the volume of the lock is full to stop the movement of profit and loss. With the possibility of multiplication, division.

Grid Levels MT4:

6. Lot multiplication:

Logical multiplication – the further the level, the greater the multiplication of the lot.

7. Magic numbers – Separate for single transactions up, down, pending. For the grid. For lock.

8. Statistics panel Mt4 – Analyze your grid strategies in the tester or in your account.

9. Prohibition of opening new grids by date and time. An open mt4 grid continues to evolve.

10. Grid visualization – Show you the following grid levels.
Particularly useful for setting arbitrary levels.

11. Indent from the level – If you trade against the trend in a large lot, then in a situation where the price breaks through a level or several levels. A pair of transactions (in trend, against trend) will open on a return in points from the level.
