Mercury Breakout Intraday Forex Robot

The Mercury Forex robot is an expert advisor, written for Metatrader 4 that captures intraday price breakouts by calculating the last local high/low prices.

The expert advisor makes use of what it terms a local high/low.

The Mercury EA’s algorithm initiates a breakout trade if the price exceeds a local high or low and a trend is registered if the lows are surging or the highs falling.

The EA is able to define within its code how it can spot a local high/low, using three candles price action.

The Forex robot utilizes an coded system that counts the number of times price has been tested and shows this count in a color scheme from white to red.

The EA made a $5908.64 profit on the EUR/USD pair 15-minute chart from an initial deposit of $10000.

It’s recommended to test the Mercury EA on the lower spread major currency pairs for best performance.

The default EA settings can be modified directly by editing the source code or changing the Forex robot’s input values.
