Dax40 EA is a powerful & exciting Index EA for MT4 that trades DE40 (aka DAX40/GER40) Index. It works based on proprietary indicators called “angel factor/period” (you can see this in inputs). Dax40 is a very low-cost instrument to trade, with most brokers quoting a 0.5 – 1.0 spread with small/no commissions.

It Operates by monitoring the movement & volatility of the DAX40 during market hours; once it detects a strong move, it will latch onto the momentum and open a trade at the next bar opening. This EA is traded during Dax open 9 am to 8 pm Frankfurt time.

It does not use dangerous trading methods like martingale, grid, etc. It only opens 2-7 trades a week, and it doesn’t hold in to trade for a long time. It uses hard stop loss and take profit of 40 – 50 points. Indices use points, not pips; one point is equal to 1$ using 1 Lot in most brokers.

This Index trading EA Uses a recovery function. EA will increase the lot size of the NEXT trade after the loss by x2 for 5 levels max(This is different from martingale). However, you can disable this feature by input parameters (increaselotafterloss = false).

Using a recovery factor after loss is very different from martingale. Do not get the 2 confused, this table compares the huge differences.
