(NEW) Super Profit Indicator

Date Added: 17.04.2017

We have added a new trend indicator called super profit, you can download it free from this website if you search the indicators. It will reduce your drawdown and increase your profits.


Volume Replace by Lots

Date Added: 17.04.2017

The calculation using lots for the smart grid system is even better to produce more winning trades, it is also better for indices and shares.


Trade Control

Date Added: 09.02.2017

This new feature allows you to set how many losing trades are allowed each day, this is useful when the trade cycle is near the end on the shorter time-frame.

As soon as (x) amount of losing trades occur, all trading for that days stops until the next day where it automatically re-starts.


Price Targets

Date Added: 08.02.2017

We have added a new feature which had the highest vote amongst the users of the Switchback Forex cBot which now allows you to select a price target to stop trading and optional close of positions.

You now have the option to set a price target for either the Buy or Sell trades, when the target is reached the cBot will stop to prevent any losses, you will need to look at the big picture and decide if you wish to continue with the trade direction.

An example would be that a price target is hit for a Sell and the cBot would stop and close open positions, you then look at the charts and find out that there is a huge price reversal about to happen soon. You can turn off the "Include Sell" parameter in the cBot and only run with Buy trades until it is safe to turn the sell back on.

still grasping usable timeframes and dinapoli settings for shorter 3-15min timeframe trades

what would be really nice is to have the ability to modify parameter: include buy/sell option without bot stopping/changing/restarting

reason being, if one could use the switchback bot effectively on multiple pairs it becomes cumbersome to keep pace with a changing market while stopping/change buy,sell/ restarting each bot

but so far well done no bugs just learning curve
