Settings file (*.set)

The settings file stores all parameters (and its values) of an Expert Advisor or Indicator in one file. This makes it easier to share settings with others or to store them on your computer for later use.

You can save and load setting inside the Inputs tab of your Expert Advisor or Indicator.

To open the Properties of an Expert Advisor, right click on the chart > Expert Advisors > Properties.
To open the Properties of an Indicator, right click on the chart > Indicators List > Choose indicator > Edit.

By clicking on the Reset button in the right below corner, the EA will use its default settings.

    The robot can work if I deposit only 100 usd?In settings the deposit is greater than 600$

    1. Yannick says:

      As long as you have enough margin to open a trade with your broker with $100, the EA will trade.

    I have recently purchased Stochastic Pro EA. It seems as if it can only close or open a trade at the closing of a candle. how do i set it to open or close a trade before the candle closes?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can change this with the parameters “trade on new bar” and “close on new bar”.

    Please I want to purchase your EA this week and I want to know if you accept Mastercard issued by Nigerian Banks. I also want to know if one can use your EA at default settings and achieve meaningful result.


    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, I accept MasterCard. No, you have to optimize the EAs first.

    Hi Yannick,
    I purchased your bundle of expert advisors.
    I tried to save my setting your guide on *.set file “save” and “load” so that I do not have to do the setting one by one on each pair. The problem, I am having is that when I click on save and window pop up with *set option but when click save nothing happen even if I added a name. Would you please provide us with a guide from the beginning to the end.

    1. Yannick says:

      You should simply be able to enter a “File name”. For example “MyEASettings1” (without *.set or .set). Then choose a folder to save and load it from.

    the ea i received in email does not have same settings you show. my question is what time frame and what pair is the email ea to be used on ? do you have pdf for the Chaos ea ?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can use all of my EA on any symbol and timeframe. Please check its product page and the functions glossary.
