1. Description

The Martingale Sweet Spot Robot uses a well managed martingale strategy. it places alternative directional trades with increasing lot sizes until the initial trade is recovered, plus a profit.

  • Easy to set up and supervise
  • Controllable risk and net exposure
  • Risk and drawdown are pre-calculated
  • All orders are placed with a stop-loss
  • Filter trading by Forex sessions

The usage and configuration of the Robot is very easy.

  • Install then add an instance of the Robot
  • Activate the trading session related to the selected Symbol pair
  • Either set the maximum trades in the martingale sequence OR set a maximum account risk percentage
  • Set the width of the martingale zone in Pips

It offers a fully automated trading strategy.

2. How does the recovery mechanism operate?



Once the Robot have placed an initial trade, it will try to apply a configurable trailing stop. If the trailing stop is triggered and the position is closed in profit, a new initial trade is open. When the stop-loss for the first trade is hit, the next trade of the martingale is automatically opened. This process continues until the predefined amount of trades is reached or until the initial trade is recovered and a profit is realized. All trades of the martingale progression have stop-loss.

3. Input Parameters

When creating and instance of the Robot, you will be presented with a set of options as input parameters. Don't despair if you think they are too many, because parameters are grouped into self-explanatory blocks. Each functional parameter is explained below.

Label The Label allows the Robot to identify its own trades when reloaded or the platform restarts. As a rule of thumb, it should not be changed and it should be unique to the current Robot instance. The robot uses the Label and the Symbol pair as an identifier, so two robots having the same label but operating on different symbol pairs will not overlap
Initial Lot Size This parameter controls the size of the initial trade. A smaller lotsize decreases the exposure of the deal.
Reset Robot This parameter will force the martingale sequence to reset. Useful if you manually closed positions and want to the robot to start with a fresh sequence
TradeType for first trade This parameter controls the trade type of the first trade in the martingale sequence. It can have two values either "Buy" or "Sell"
TakeProfit (0 not used) Sets take-profit for the first trade in Pips. Not used during the martingale process. Set as 0 to ignore and use the trailing stop instead of a fixed TP value
Trailing Stop trigger (0 not used) The number of Pips in profit to trigger the trailing stop process. A small value is a tight stop, and a big value is a wide stop. This parameter only affects the first trade, not during the recovery process.
Trailing step in pips When the trailing stop mechanism is active this parameter sets how much the StopLoss will be set from the current price
Trade European Session If enabled, the Robot will start trades only during the European Session.
Trade Asian Session If enabled, the Robot will start trades only during the Asian Session.
Trade American Session If enabled, the Robot will start trades only during the American Session.
Max Trades (0 to ignore) Maximum amount of trades to place during the martingale process. A higher amount of trades means the total risk will be greater. Set as 0 to ignore and use the next parameter to set the risk and calculate how much trades it can take
Maximum Risk % (0 to ignore) The maximum amount of account risk the martingale process can take.
Zone in pips The zone is the distance in pips between the current order and the next order in the martingale. It is also the stop-loss for all trades, and the take-profit for the trades in the martingale.

6. FAQ

It is, because each trade is taken when the last one has been closed.
Yes, it is. Unlike the Hedging or Averaging versions, this Robot implements a martingale recovery process, as each trade is taken when the previous one has been closed, with increasing lotsizes and identical management parameters.
You must have your computer connected 24/5 or hire a VPS.
Please don't. Let the Robot do its job. All you can do is closing the deal completely.
It depends on the Label you set. If other trades have the same Label it will be managed by the Robot, off course this should not happen
Yes. But off course you need to need to monitor it regularly
