How it works:
places two pending orders at the distance of netstep from the current price
if one of them triggers, the other one is deleted
places one more pending order in the direction of the price movement at the direction of netstep, but with the lot multiplied by mul
etc. until it reaches the maxtrades number of opened trades or LotLim
after that it trails the stop losses and take profits in the direction of the price, i.e. the task is to catch the trend and not to lose on the flat
therefore, maxtrades, stop losses, take profits depend on the market volatility, and mul should be less than two, in order not to lose too much due to the accumulated margin
in short, the EA operation is the most stable when using the least possible values of these parameters

I ask for help of those who liked this EA or those who found it rational.
1. Large drawdown, you can put filters based on some indicators in order to close earlier, later or move stop losses, take profits
(I am unable to do that, or rather it does not get any better)
2. If anyone has a good experience of live trading, please, I would really like the EA to reach that state …
(for example, on fxstart demo it does not modify orders (in tester everything is normal), and on forex4u everything is OK)
I would be grateful for any feedback, comments and suggestions!
Send the modified experts, set files for different instruments, found errors
I will not lock or sell the EA, and I will send the latest versions to anyone who can make it work.
And I am against selling this EA!
(not because it is good/bad, but because IMHO only the author(s) have the right to do so)
