Is Volatility Based Trading the Best for Forex?

Market volatility is a term to describe the degree of the market's risk as a result of the amount of the next change in the currency price over a short period of time. The higher the expected amount of change, the more the market's volatility, the higher its risk.

With the ability to predict the most approximate value to the amount of the next change in a currency price, the market's volatility can be closely predicted and profits can be made from that, this can be achieved by a balanced use of specific tactics to exploit market's volatility and trend which is called Volatility Based Trading Strategy.

This strategy usually trades and takes advantage of the prevailing market direction except in few cases where it strongly expects a market correction and  then takes limited positions. Entry, StopLoss and TakeProfit values are calculated according to the market's volatility.

Trading Strategy

Volatility Based Market Algorithm & Money Management

Volatility Factor EA was designed to make 10-15+ pips per trade via its very powerful volatility based market algorithm.

This algorithm closely watches the market, so when a desired movement is detected in a certain direction, in a lightening fast reaction, it initiates trades with leverage to magnify the returns on the current market volatility.

The EA focuses on the medium term market's signals and with its powerful and sensitive money management system, it can keep your account safe and minimizes risk till the trades get exited.

Prevailing Level Detection

This is the corner stone for the volatility based trading strategy via a thorough view over the market to correctly predicting the currency pair trading range within which its price swings.

More over, thousands of sophisticated calculations are necessary to correctly map the channel and accurately identify the prevailing level, which are automatically processed by Volatility Factor EA.

Drawdown Correction

By applying the volatility based market algorithm, the EA can make important profits unless a genuine channel breakout has occurred that isn't inline with the algorithm's calculations, here the EA money management algorithms starts its action by closely watching the trades and systematically closing each position with an optimal profit level and a minimum drawdown to protect the account balance and keep it within the risk profile parameters.

Trading Frequency

With such strategy and profiting protocol, any system should end into a lazy one with slow trading rate, but via its lightning fast trading logic, Volatility Factor EA can quickly react with the market, analyze it and makes 3 - 4 profitable trades per session.

Spread and Price Slippage Protection

Volatility Factor EA has an advanced integrated protection system that is configured to minimize the broker driven price spread and slippage, so it's compatible with any broker and any account type.

Backtests

We have conducted a set of 5 year backtests from May 2011 to May 2016 on EURUSD and GBPUSD in addition to GBPCHF as an unsupported pair that became tradable since the version 7.1 using special parameter settings in the EA.

We used high quality 99% Dukascopy tick data for all of the backtests via a Tickmill ECN-PRO Demo account with a spread of 0.1 as a reference for comparison (the lower the spread, the better the results).

The variations we used in the backtests to expose the performance flexibility of Volatility Factor EA included different risks (AutoMM) of 1.0 pips as low risk, 2.0 pips as moderate risk, 4.0 as high risk, 6.0 as very high risk and 0 pips with FixedLots of 0.02 pips to trade with the minimum risk.

We applied these different risk levels on each pair alternatively with disabling additional trades (MaxNegAdds=0), and again with enabling additional trades (MaxNegAdds=3).
