Introduction and Background
Before 2021 all Expert4x trading Robots were main swing trading (periods of weeks or months) Robots. Expert4x recently had 2 trading competitions where the winners used our swing trading Robots to create day trading strategies with much faster settings and one directional approaches. This showed a great new way of trading Robots.
So we created 2 Day trading versions of our best Swing trading Robots. The Make Money Day Trader and the Trend Trader was born. Both were beta tested for a few months in our paid forum with very valuable input being received and improvement suggestions. The trend trader uses Price level concepts to enter trades and a Moving average to identify the trend.
This resulted in the new Trend Trader Robot to be able to be used in 3 ways.
- It can be used for short term (up to a month) swing trading
- It can be used as a Day Trader trading specific strategies less than 24 hours. All trades can be closed at specific times during the day.
- The strategies can very effectively be used to pass the Proprietary Trading (FTMO) qualification tests to become a professional trader (details below).
“….l am ready on real account”
“It will be one of the top EAs”
The video on the left shows the clear benefits of of the Trend Trader in terms of risk exposure and income creation. It gives the trader the ability to:-
- Set daily income and loss targets
- Close all deals at a specified time or when targets are reached every day
- Easily find the trend according to the trader's needs
- Limit open deals thereby reducing exposure to margin requirements
- Set trading zones if required
- Trade efficiently in an understandable way
Example of day trading options
(The chart to the right shows trading during a particular day)
- You can set price levels between which trading can take place
- You can set the time of day during which trading should take place
- You can set the evenly spaced distance between trading price levels
- Transactions can have unique targets and stops
- You can decide when you want all the trades for the day closed
- In this example trades are opened a trading price levels using the angle of the Moving Average
Set and forget traders use set files to trade the same settings over several weeks. Initially these set files come for the settings provided on the Expert4x free and paid data settings data bases. These are not plug-n-play settings you can blindly start trading.
These set files need calibration to trader’s own broker accounts using a process called the “I wonder” approach. Once aligned and reasonable back testing results have been achieved, experienced traders test 6 to 8 variations of the results on demo accounts for 3 to 4 weeks to make sure satisfactory results have been experienced. At that point only the best settings are selected for live trading.
More experienced traders create their own settings using a combination of optimisation, back testing, watching trading happen on charts and experimentation to create set and forget strategies. Because of their skills, they can start trading live sooner

Day traders often use the trading robots as tools to automate the trading that they would do manually or trading that happens so fast that it is impractical to do manually or to manage trading when they are away (sleeping).
So, they would use their own trading experience and strategies to identify trading opportunities amongst several currencies and timeframes. They would then activate a special set of settings for those trading circumstances and let the robot do the rest of the work of managing the transaction and exited as instructed.
Many of our recent Competition winners used this approach
Proprietary traders trade other people’s money. Anybody can do this. They would use the Robot to either use a swing trading or day trading approach to generate consistent income. They can trade up to $400 000 and keep up to 70% of the gains generated. All that is required is to go through 3 qualifying phases.
The returns required by this approach are not very high (5% to 10%) but traders have to have drawdown management and position sizing skills to succeed. The Trend Trader Robot provides the tool to meet proprietary trading requirements. There is currently an Expert4x proprietary trading competition where winners have generated success using approaches used by the Trend Trader. See this link for qualifiers who have meet the 5% requirement: -
As shown by the highlighted headings in the picture on the right and below the settings have been arranged in a logic order of trading decision making.
There is a detailed user manual providing detailed information about each setting and the drop down menus
- Back test and forward test any settings you propose to use until your experience profitable results
- Back test and forward test any settings you propose to use until your experience profitable results
- Use you positions sizing in conjunction with the above equity stops and target to create an optimum balance between these settings e.g. It you position sizing is too large you might be stopped out too often
- Experiment with different values of transaction stops and targets. Keep them realistic to day trading values – if neither are being reached in days, they are likely to be too big.
- The price Level Gap size setting is critical and should be related to the currency’s volatility. Experiment with values between 6 and 20.
- There are times of the day that are well suited to “reversal’ strategies and other time are best suited to “with the trend”. Generally, the low volatility times are good for reversals and the high volatility for trends. You need to experiment with this concept
- Make sure the Daily trading mode is activated when using the Day trading settings
- If you want to day trade with the same settings make sure "re-entry" is selected after close trade options (Target, Stop and time of day settings.)
- Some traders have found the MA shift setting very effect for catching good trends
- If you want to trade 2 sessions of the day e.g. use EAs on different charts
- Some traders have reported good results trading both the reversal and trending strategies at the same time. They seem to create a hedge
