About the Moving Average Cross EA

The MA Cross EA (MA Crossover EA) uses two moving average to trade. A buy signal is generated if the faster moving average crosses the slower moving average from below. Vice versa for a sell trade.

MA Crossover is a very popular and simple trading strategy. This MA Cross EA allows you to trade Simple, Exponential, Smoothed and Linear-weighted Moving Averages for the fast and slow MA. You can also choose the Applied Price for both MAs.

    hi I am an EA ADX customer, I downloaded EA MA crossing in demo to try if it works well before buying the full version, because it only opens sell trades? Thanks for the reply

    1. Yannick says:

      By default it trades long and short (buy and sell). Optionally you can change these settings (pro version only).

  2. Pera says:

    How many order will it open? Only one ?

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, only one.

  3. salartime says:

    where is exit strategy in input? i dont see it

    1. Yannick says:

      This EA does not have an “Exit Strategy” but only a “Close on Signal” function.

  4. Dunna JAGDISH RAO says:

    Is it mandatory to provide Time to trade fields? And please explain the format of providing value for time to trade .

    1. Yannick says:

      It is optional. Read /school/functions.

    I’m looking for a similar EA but i prefer it to open a buy or sell trade after the whole candle including wicks has closed above or below the 2 moving averages. And a couple of other requirements.
    thanks Ken

    1. Yannick says:

      I guess then you should try the Moving Average EA (not cross) with a trend filter.

  7. siglas says:

    Could you please explian the Exit Estrategy in the PRO version of the expert?

    1. Yannick says:

      With the exit strategy is activated, the EA will close a open position at the next crossover. If the exit strategy is not active, the positions will only get closed by TakeProfit or StopLoss.

      1. DPS says:

        I’m having 3 MT4 accounts. Do I need 3 licence or 1 is good enough.?

        1. Yannick says:

          You only need one license.
