Hello, I have a Forex trading Robot Expert Advisor that alerts me when potential trades are imminent. The program is used with Dukascopy JForex Trading Platform, I have had the program custom developed, when I get an ALERT BUY or ALERT SELL from my Java program it creates an audible alert and a dashed yellow line is displayed on my trading chart, I would like this alert sent to my phone as a text message and email, mainly just text message but both if possible please, as I can then leave my trading screens and do other things around my home? I get an ALERT BUY or ALERT SELL, when the price moves by a set amount of pips from the 8EMA and then after the ALERT BUY or SELL is given my robot is then waiting for the price to move a predetermined amount of pips past my ALERT SELL or ALERT BUY line, I then get a final SELL or BUY line that appears on the screen and an audible alarm, this tells me to take the trade, I would also like the final BUY or SELL command alarm sent to my phone by text and email.
Would it be possible to also have a ‘Trailing stop function on its own individual activation button, so when my strategy is active and I turn the ‘trailing stop’ button on, it activates a trailing stop on my trades?
The Dukascopy trading platform default settings only allows trailing stop from 10pips of profit forward, I would like to have a trailing stop where ever I wish, so a trailing stop settings box would be useful, from zero pips to approx 100pips?
I ideally want a trailing stop loss to activate when I get to 5pips profit, to lock in my 5pips profit and close my trade should my profit drop below 5pips, although should the price continue beyond 5pips, this feature I ask for would lock in my trade profit until the price reversed, upon reversal of the trend the trailing stop would close my trade and bank my funds.
I run my strategy manually, I don’t not use the ‘enable trading’ function button at present, so I would like the trailing stop function to activate when the enable trading button is not activated, I already have a trailing stop function on my strategy/robot for when I have ‘enable trading’ active, this allows a trailing stop of less than 10pips, so the programming language that already exists may be of some use to us?
The ‘enable trading’ button completely automates my trading, buying selling, etc. As mentioned above I require another trailing stop function for when the enable trading button is not activated, but when my alert strategy is still running on my trading platform.
Please advise options and costings?
