    Default Strategy Trader: Custom Indicator and EA Library

    FXCM's programming team and course instructors have been working on custom indicators and EA's for the Strategy Trader platform so I will create a library of indicators and EA's you can download directly from this thread. Each indicator and EA to a post so you will need to download the zip file, unzip the .FXD file for Strategy Trader, and then add it to the Strategy Trader platform using the Strategy Language Editor. I have included steps below on how you can access the Strategy Language Editor:

    Using the Strategy Trader editor to import EA's and indicators.

    1. Strategy Language Editor desktop icon.
    A Strategy Language Editor icon is automatically added to your desktop whenever you install Strategy Trader.


    2. Strategy Trader file menu:
    Can be found by clicking on File at the top left of the Strategy Trader platform.


    3. Strategy Trader main menu icon:
    Can be found at the top of the Strategy Trader platform in the row of menu buttons:



    Once the Strategy Language Editor opens, goto the top left of the window and click on File > Import.


    Table of Contents

    Clicking on the indicator/EA link will take you directly to the post containing that indicator/EA.

    Default Economic Calendar Indicator

    The economic calendar indciator will post economic news announcements directly onto the chart along with the actual figure released. The indicator will display any economic events relevant to the currency pair displayed in the chart. For example if you are viewing USD/JPY, it will display economic releases relevant to the US and Japan. The indicator pulls data from the DailyFX economic calendar.

    Default Ichimoku EA

    This strategy trades off the Tenkan/Kijun Crossover from the Ichimoku indicator. A new position is opened when there is a crossover, and the lot size is dependent on signal strength. For example, if a short signal occurs below the cloud (Kumo), then the strategy opens 2 lots since this is considered a strong signal. If a short signal occurs above the cloud (Kumo), then the strategy only opens 1 lot since this is considered a weak signal.

    This EA is coded compliments of DailyFX+ Course Instructor James Stanley.
