    The cTrader Moving Average Crossover Strategy is a very commonly used system to help traders find the middle of a trend that defines price action in which prices move in a specific direction over a while.  Generally, trends are either upward or downward, as sideways movements are considered consolidation and not trends.  


    How Do We Capture a Trend?

    • Short-term trends can be captured using short-term moving averages.
    • Long-term trends can be captured using long-term moving averages.
    • An example is a 5-day moving average of the EURUSD crosses above the 20-day moving average of the same symbol.

    What Is a Fast and Slow Moving Average?

    The faster moving average is a short-term moving average. ... A moving average, as a line by itself, is often overlaid on price charts to indicate price trends. A crossover occurs when a faster-moving average (a shorter period moving average) crosses a slower moving average (a longer period moving average).

    How are 4 Moving Average Indicators Used?

    What makes this trading system so different is that you can choose the period, type and source for the fast and slow-moving average indicators which are used to enter a trade and again the period, type and source for the fast and slow-moving average indicators to exit and close trades, so you use 4 moving average indicators in total. you can turn off the feature of using moving average indicators to close trades and instead use another method.


    Email & PopUp Alerts

    If you turn on either the email or the popup alert then when a signal occurs and a position opens you will be informed that this event has occurred, you also have the option to turn off auto-trading and use this just as a signal system.


    Instant Telegram Message Alerts

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


    What Moving Averages Can You Choose?

    1. Simple
    2. Exponential
    3. Time-series

    How Can You Use This Automated Trading System?

    The chart below shows a position that was closed with profit using this trading robot, it shows a faster-moving average (blue line) with a period of 5 crossings above the slower moving average (green line) period 20, at this point a buy position open and closed when the fast MA crossed below the slow MA.


    Closing Only When the Two MA's Cross

    If you set your stop loss and take profit values to zero then the robot will close only when the two MA's cross, but there is a little bit more to it than that, it has some extra logic for a better performance show below. Please note that a single position will only ever be open at any time unless you turn off the Close on Crossover Feature.


    Rule to close a buy position

    • 1st fast MA must have crossed below the 2nd slow 

    Rule to close a short position

    • 1st fast MA must have crossed above the 2nd slow MA 


    Please note that the two moving averages that open trade are independent of the two moving averages that close a trade.

    Also, it is possible to have a buy and sell trade open at the same time, but not 2 trades of the same side.


    Trading Hours

    This is very important and will vary from symbol to symbol, with XAUUSD there is unpredictable volatility at certain times of the day, for example, heavy trading could happen in the morning or late afternoon, this is why the parameters we use are 09:00 - 13:00 GMT. If trading hours are used then the robot will only open positions during the set hours, but it will continue to manage the trailing stop, take profits and stop losses at all times.


    Adjustable Settings & Features

    We have made sure that you are not just buying a strategy that just opens and closes positions when the two MA's cross each other, we have included the most useful risk management and alert features that you will need to get the most out of this robot.
