    The Hull Moving Average (HMA), created by Alan Hull, is very fast and smooth. The HMA almost eliminates lag and manages to improve smoothing at the same time. The HMA accomplishes this by incorporating weighted moving averages and a square root of the period to adjust for the lag. This robot will automatically open and close positions based on this indicator.

    The Hull Moving Average is used by traders to identify trends and potential reversal points in the price of an asset as it is smoother than traditional moving averages and reacts faster to price changes, making it popular among traders who prefer less lag in their indicators.

    How is the Hull MA Calculated?

    The Hull Moving Average uses the weighted moving average (WMA) in its calculation, you calculate the WMA with the period (n / 2) and multiply this by 2, then you calculate the WMA for period “n” and subtract. The last step is to calculate the weighted moving average with a period sqrt (n) using the data.


    Hull MA= WMA (2*WMA (n/2) − WMA (n)), sqrt (n))

    ‘n’ is the period configurable based on the trader’s requirement.

    How Do We Capture a Trend?

    The robot will take a long position if prices are rising and the HMA is trending upwards and it can take a short position if the prevailing trend is falling. It also works very well as a reversal filter as the exit signals can be very reliable. The Hull MA is better than the other moving average indicators as it is more dynamic regarding price activity while maintaining a smooth curve.


    On-Demand Optimised Settings

    We can provide 1-set of optimised settings from the date you request them going 1 year back, this is to demonstrate the product on historical price data. This product requires that you understand how to both backtest and optimise your settings in the future.


    Advanced Risk Management Features

    Having an automated strategy that relies mostly on technical indicators will need some form of protection against high-impact market events like news releases or even low liquidity when the spreads are so high that when new positions are opened there could be many pips down from the start.


    1. Max spread - you can set a limit so that a position will not open if the symbol spread is too high.
    2. Stop loss and take profit.
    3. Trailing stop with pip step - when the price gains a set amount of pips to stop loss is moved (x) pips behind the price and as the price increases, it is adjusted to a set amount of pips (step).
    4. Trading hours #1 - you can set the hours you want the robot to open new positions, there may be times when it is best avoided, but open positions will still be managed, and this can be a morning session.
    5. Trading hours #2 - this can be the afternoon session.


    Trading Hour Sessions Explained

    We found that on certain symbols the best results are when using two trading sessions and avoiding lunchtimes and after 6 pm. High-impact news releases or other market events can cause losses.

    Instant Telegram Message Alerts

    You can configure this trading robot to also send instant Telegram alerts directly to your PC, Tablet or mobile phone.


    High-Impact News Event Manager Included

    We include a free copy of the news management robot which integrates into this trading robot to pause trading during high-impact news events.


    This Strategy Works With All Symbols

    We ran a back-tests on the following symbols using a broker that supports indices. When you load the example parameters you may need to change the symbol name if you are using a different broker.


    Adjustable Settings & Features

     We have made sure that you are not just buying a strategy that just opens and closes positions when the indicators are oversold or overbought, we have included the most useful risk management and alert features that you will need to get the most out of this robot.
