looking for a coder on a little project of mine!
idea pretty simple -
EA check's when NFP is due and
open's a SELL and a BUY order X minutes prior to the release -
lot size can be a dynamic pick, depending on the balance.
trade parameters are simple too - both have a TP - X pips OR the trade, that is in profit X minutes AFTER NFP release, is closed - the other trade gets closed at a TP ( should be 0 pips ) like a break - even AND have a time limit, like X minutes, or prior to midnight ( markets closing for the weekend ) or maybe the trade gets closed on monday, lets say 3am.
the TP for break-even should not be mandatory, since the EA might get both trades in a positive balance, so i suggest the trade to get closed prior midnight, or after weekend.
anyone interested, in checking the results out/coding it?
the ea should check for the NFP releases on its own, otherwise it gets tricky to test long term runs, due to day-light savings, holidays, and sometimes landing a friday, NFP day after the 7th date ( like just now, 8th january, 2016 ).
