    what is inverse strategy.. what happens if i change it to “True”

    1. Yannick says:

      See “If the InverseStrategy function is set to True, the EA turns the entry logic around. If the EA gets a buy signal, it will now open a sell position instead, and vice versa.” from https://quivofx.com/school/functions/

  2. vimalkumar says:

    hi yannick, recently i purchased supertrend EA… can i get supertrend indicator or i have to purchase that too?

    1. Yannick says:

      There is a free and a paid version of the indicator. They are different purchases.

  3. Brian Wallace says:

    I can’t back test I did everything it said to do all I get for final result is a big green line but no trades

    1. Yannick says:

      Do you see an error in the experts or journal tab?

  4. Rab says:

    The parameter “Max Open Trades” is the maximum open trade per pair, maximum open trades for all pairs, maximum open trades per direction, or what? Please explain. Thank you

    1. Yannick says:

      MaxOpenTrades per EA. It uses a combination of the Symbol and the MagicNumber to identify which trades below to which EA.

  5. sibin says:

    which pairs best for this ea?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can use it on any pair. I do not have any statistics of the performance of the different pairs and timeframes.

  6. Albert says:

    I am interested in the Supertrend EA. I have already downloaded the free version and run it on real to verify how it works.
    I expect that, if I have an open position and neither the stop nor the target is reached, but the supertrend changes color (at the close of a candle), the ea close the existing position and open a new position in the opposite side. It was not happened.
    I set all the parameters false, only trade color change is true.
    Maybe am I missing something?

    1. Yannick says:

      This is what the EA should do if you use the default settings. Maybe set “Supertrend as StopLoss” to false, TP = 500 and SL = 500, and test it on a demo account.

  7. Kos says:

    Can you add martingale function? Thank you.

    1. Yannick says:

      No, unfortunately not.

  8. Cyrus says:

    What is a candle trail?

  9. andrea says:

    1. Yannick says:

  10. Art Baker says:

    Are you available to preprogram any of your EA’s for me for maxium profit gain, willing to pay for this service, that way I don’t have to keep on guessing with parameters that I don’t understand or how they work, would rather pay you.

    1. Yannick says:

      Unfortunately, I do not offer any settings.

  11. Visualist says:

    I opened a post in the forum

    1. Yannick says:

      Ok, I’ll take a look.

  12. Visualist says:

    I downloaded the Basic version! Mt4 does not work! But the strategic tester works fine! Optimized!

  13. RoK777 says:

    Hi, now the signals set pending orders on chart. Can you implement that signals make market orders, please? Thank you very much. Good work so far!

    1. Yannick says:

      No, only the Trend Change strategy uses Market Orders. All other are set to pending orders.

      1. FRXROK says:

        Ok, i know, but can you change it in the code with the next update, please? Is that possible?

        Thank you very much

        1. Yannick says:

          I will most probably not make any updated on this EA in the future. But if I will make an MT5 version I will consider implementing more flexible strategies.

          1. Siamang says:

            When can we get the MT5 version? When it will available?

          2. Yannick says:

            I have already made some. They are in beta. I do not know when they will be available.

  14. Vasile says:

    Hello, I try to backtest SuperTrend EA Basic ( free) but the the result is ZERO. I tried also and download Supertrend Plus (Trend Trading Indicator) but nothing happened in backtest. Do I miss anything here?

    1. Yannick says:

      Hmm, no. It should just work. Do other of my EA work on your system?

  15. lindomarjs says:

    Hello, it was good to find your platform and how you treat your users caught my attention, I downloaded the expert-advisor – supertrend-ea, I’m testing since yesterday were closed 3 orders in profit and 2 with perca, I’m tracking his work and along with it I put the recommended indicator. I will continue testing and giving the feedback, if you have some EA from the list to indicate to be tested let me know it will be a pleasure to test it. As long as you feel safe, I will use the ones that are sold by you. Big hug and congratulations on your site !!! Lindomar JS

    1. Yannick says:

      Thanks. I’m very glad you like my site and my products.
      At the moment I do not need an EA to be tested for me. But thanks for asking 🙂

  16. Robbin says:

    Hi Yannick

      No, unfortunately not.

  17. Tareq says:


    I bought the SuperTrend EA and when using the SuperTrend stop loss and the normal stop loss the winning trades failed to close in profit and so that the SuperTrend stop loss did not protect my profits. Can you tell me what if, anything, I was doing wrong?

    Thank you

    T. N.

    1. Yannick says:

      Can you please open a new topic in the forum and provide your settings?

    Yannick tu vives del forex con un EA?

    1. Yannick says:

      No. I’m a programmer. quivofx and forex in general are not my main income.

  19. Rony says:

    Hallo Yannik

    Bei EA kauf, muss ich separat die passende Indikatoren auch kaufen damit die EA richtig funktioniert?
    Sonst im allgemeinen sind Deine Angebote sehr interessant und kann mir vorstellen ein paar Systeme in Zukunft zu kaufen.
    Im Voraus Danke für Deine Antwort!

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, this is the case with the Supertrend EA. All other EAs use default indicators which are included with MT4.

  20. azly says:

    hello sir… can i ask u something? this ea can using on real account? and what time the best time frame using it? thx u

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, you can use it on a real account. I do not have any statistics about which timeframe works best.

  21. Joe Szabó-Szücs says:

    Hallo! I trade at Broker GKFX, only DAX, with Kolier SuperTrend….timeframe D1, on MT4.
    Your EA is OK for DAX, or only Forex?

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, it should work on all symbols.

    2. manuel says:

      Hi Joe I am testing Super trend ea on dax and I have no esult . Could you post the setting please ?

  22. Harman Le says:

    Hi Yannick,
    I am trying to understand the strategy of taking trades, e.g. pullback strategy
    How does it work? DO you have a description for it?
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Yannick says:

      It is described on the indicator’s page.

  23. Andrew says:

    This seems to work nicely on the AU H1. I would like to monitor each of the 4 strategies separately so looking for 4 magic numbers but it only seems to record one magic. Does each strategy have its own magic, or could you enable it to do so?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can choose the magicNumber for each EA. To track your trades based on magicNumber please use a 3part tool like myfxbook or fxblue.

      1. Andrew says:

        OK thanks Yannick.
        I was hoping that I could run just one copy of the EA and let it do its 4 different strategies; each with its own magic.
        But I guess you are saying that I need to run 4 copies of the EA, choose one strategy on each by setting that to true, and enter a magic for that copy. And repeat 4 times.

        1. Yannick says:

          No, you have to open 4 charts and attach the EA 4 times with different settings.

  24. J. S. says:

    Hi.. I tested the EA and I get no trades in the results. I am using the demo version.. Can you advise?

    1. Yannick says:

      Do you use the default settings? Does the smiley face in the top right corner of the chart smiling?

  25. Kelechukwu says:

    Good day sir. Please sir, this Ea and the Indicators can I use smartphones to install them because I don’t have computer thanks

    1. Yannick says:

      No, it is not possible to install 3part EA or indicator on the MT mobile app.

  26. francesco says:

    Good morning, because it does not make me the backtest on all the currencies,
    thank you very much and have a nice day.

    1. Yannick says:

      You can make backtest on all symbols and timeframes using the strategy tester.

  27. Doug says:

    Hi, I see you can enter a manual stop loss eg 30 pips on a 15 min time frame for example, but if you also set the super trend to operate as a stop loss which takes priority, please?

    1. Yannick says:

      If you use the SL and/or multiple trailing functions, the SL will always be the highest value of all. You can test it if the strategy tester.

  28. castillo says:

    1. Yannick says:

      No, you have to use a VPS for this.

      1. francesco says:

        ok, thank you!

  32. Sam Spacey says:

  38. Campfrie says:

    This EA opens an order with the next candle. I think it would be better if it were the setting would open a trade immediately at a signal. Just like their other EA

    1. Yannick says:

      It is not possible to change this, because the indicators works this way.

  39. Max Rene says:

    Works excellent in openings, important data or news !!

  40. mayank sharma says:

    Sir i am looking for this ea for long time, happy to see but it takes too much to optimize showing 3 days approximate time in open price category, is there any way to optimize easily?

    1. Yannick says:

      No, if it takes too long, maybe your selected period is too long or your computer is too slow.

  41. paulo says:

    the basic does not load .. i downloaded and MT4 does not want to load it

    1. Yannick says:
