Look_Back_Time: This is the number of seconds that the Tick Speed Indicator will use to calculate the value.
Five_Digit_Broker: Change it to true if you Broker uses fractional Pip pricing, make sure you adjust your setting TP, SL, Step , etc to reflect the correct amount.
Expert advisor settings:
>Note: 4xPartner will only manage trades that have no Magic number, if you like to use 4xPartner in conjunction with another expert advisor, make sure the other expert advisor uses a magic number different from 0.
Stop_Loss: 4xPartner will use this value in PIPs to set the Stop_Loss for ALL manually open trades for the current pair. The S/L will not be modified by 4xPartner once you have your trade opened. If you want to change the S/L, just right click on the open trade > Modify or Delete Order then set the S/L value you wish.
>>Note: If your broker uses fractional pips you need to set the Five_Digit_Broker = TRUE for it to work properly. Also 4xPartner can only add a Stop Loss to a trade but it cannot change it, so if you like 4xPartner to manage your initial Stop Loss, when you open a new trade do it without a Stop Loss or Take Profit that way 4xPartner can immediately add this values for you when it detects a new open order.
Take_Profit_1: Set this parameter to the amount of pips you would like 4xPartner to close your position.
Take_Profit_2: Set this parameter to the amount of pips you would like 4xPartner to close your position in case the first goal (Take_Profit_1) is not reached in the period of time you set (TP_2_Time).
TP_2_Time: Set this parameter to the number of minutes you want 4xPartner to activate Take_Profit_2 in case the position does not reach Take_Profit_1.
- TP_1: 120 (pips)
- TP_2: 30 (pips)
- TP_2_Time: 75 (minutes)
In this example using the above settings, we will open a long position at 1:00 PM. Therefore, the limit of time to reach the first goal (TP_1) is 2:15PM
If the position does not reach the first goal (TP_1) 120 pips at 2:16 PM 4xPartner will set as a new goal (TP_2) 30 pips.
The objective is to try avoiding the Stop Loss when the target (TP_1) is not reached, giving to the trade a second chance with a lower price target.
If you decide to use only Take_Profit_1 set TP_2_Time at 9999.
Note: Take Profit 1 and 2 will be hidden to your broker, it will not be displayed at the Terminal windows.
Advanced Step Level strategy:
Use_Step: If set to true 4xPartner will use the Advanced Step System during the time you set for.
Safe_Amount: This is the amount in pips that 4xPartner will set your Stop Loss once your position is at or above the amount of pips in the Target parameter.
Target: This is the amount of pips that will trigger 4xPartner to activate the Safe_Amount.
>Note: The Target always has to be a higher value than the Safe_Amount
Example: If Safe_Amount=30 pips and Target=100 pips. When your position reaches 100 pips the stop loss will move so you have 30 pips profit locked in, therefore if the position moves against you will make 30 pips and if moves in your favor it will keep stepping up using the Step_1 and Step_2 values.
STEP_1: When the position reaches two times the value of STEP_1 4xPartner will set the Stop Loss to the value of the open price + Safe_Amount + STEP_1.
Example: If Safe_Amount=30 pips and STEP_1=175 pips. When your positions reaches 350 pips the stop loss will move so you have 205 pips profit locked in (Safe_Amount + STEP_1. ), therefore if the position moves against you will make 205 pips and if moves in your favor it will keep stepping up using Step_2 values.
STEP_2: When the position profit continues to increase and distance in pips between the current Stop Loss value and the current profit reaches two times the value of STEP_2 4xPartner will set the Stop Loss to the current price minus the amount of STEP_2.
Example: If STEP_1=175 pips and STEP_2=150. When your position reaches 505 pips (Safe_Amount + STEP_1 + STEP_2 + STEP_2) the stop loss will move so you have 355 pips profit locked in (CurrentProfit – STEP_2. ), therefore if the position moves against you will make 355 pips and if moves in your favor it will keep stepping up using the same formula.
Max_Minute_Step: Set this parameter to the number of minutes you expect to overpass the Target.
After the set time lapsed, 4xPartner will use the Take_Profit_1 and/or Take_Profit_2 values.
- Safe_Amount= 30 pips
- Target= 150 pips
- Max_Minute_Step= 120 minutes
- Take_Profit_1 = 75 pips
- Take_Profit_2= 20 pips
- TP_2_Time: 30 minutes
- Stop Loss: 350 pips
In this example using the above settings, If our position does not reach the Target (150 pips) after 120 minutes 4xPartner will use the Take_Profit_1 for 30 minutes, if after the 30 minutes the 75 pips mark is not reached 4xPartner will use Take_Profit_2= 20 pips. The position will keep open until getting this last goal or reaching the Stop Loss.
>Note: On multiple manually open positions of the same pair 4xPartner will manage all the positions of the current pair using the same parameters and if you change a parameter after the position opens, 4xPartner will change its behavior with the exception of the Stop Loss, as explained earlier the initial Stop Loss of a position will only be applied if the positions has no Stop Loss.
>Note: The default values are only examples and the user should find the best personal values. We strongly suggest that you start playing with the settings in a demo account and NOT with real money until you are comfortable with the usage of 4xPartner.
ReducePositition_at_Target: If true, the lot size will be reduced when the price reaches the target.
ReducePosition_on_Step1: If true, the lot size will be reduced when the price reaches the Step1.
You open a position of 1 lot size and want to reduce 0.20 lot size when the price reaches the Target and an additional 0.30 when the price reaches the Step 1. The 0.50 lot remaining will run under the parameters you specify in 4xPartner.
Disable_pop_up: If true, you will avoid the pop-ups that warn you if EA is enabled or disabled.
MAGICMA: This should always be set to 0. Experienced users can experiment using 4xPartner in conjunction with other expert advisor by setting 4xPartner’s Magic number to match the Magic number of the other expert advisor, this is only recommend for experienced users.
Clean_Screen: Set it to false will keep 4xPartner from deleting custom trend lines and indicator.
Update_Friday_Only: If set false 4xPartner will update as soon as the new version is released.
Alternative_GMT_Clock: If 4xPartner does not display the GMT time correctly, set this option to true.This problem is caused by your windows clock had been set with an incorrect GMT offset.
