The "Delayed Grid" Expert Advisor is a sophisticated trading tool designed to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the financial markets with a unique approach. This EA operates by employing a grid-based trading strategy, but with a twist. Unlike traditional grid EAs, the "Delayed Grid" takes into account price action before initiating either BUY or SELL orders, allowing for a more selective and conservative trading approach. This feature enables users to specify the number of grid steps to skip before the first trade is executed, thereby reducing the frequency of orders and the total lot size involved in the strategy.

One of the standout features of the "Delayed Grid" EA is its flexibility. Traders can configure the EA to their specific preferences, defining not only the initial grid step but also the take-profit levels and the lots exponent. This level of customization empowers traders to fine-tune their trading strategy to align with their risk tolerance and market expectations.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the "Delayed Grid" EA is its remarkable performance metrics. While many grid-based strategies often suffer from high drawdowns and less-than-favorable profit factors, the "Delayed Grid" defies these norms. It boasts a lower-than-average drawdown, demonstrating a commitment to preserving capital and managing risk effectively. Additionally, it achieves a very good profit factor, indicating that it generates profits consistently relative to its losses.

In summary, the "Delayed Grid" Expert Advisor represents a groundbreaking approach to grid trading that leverages price action to make informed trading decisions. With its user-friendly configuration options, it offers traders an unparalleled level of control over their trading strategy. This EA is an excellent choice for traders who seek both capital preservation and profitability, making it a standout performer in the realm of algorithmic trading.
Magic Number The Magic Number is a unique identifier for the EA's trades. It helps the EA distinguish its own trades from those of other EAs or manual trades. It's essential to have a distinct Magic Number for each instance of the EA running on your trading platform.
Grid Step Grid Step is the predetermined price difference, measured in points, between each successive trade in the grid. It defines the spacing between your orders as the price moves, and it's a critical parameter for controlling your trading strategy's aggressiveness.
Max Orders in Recovery Grid This input determines the maximum number of orders the EA can place in the recovery grid. Once this limit is reached, the EA won't open any additional orders. This is a risk management feature to prevent excessive exposure.
Number of Delayed Steps in Grid Skip Steps indicates the number of grid steps the EA will wait before opening its first trade. This helps the EA assess the market direction and potentially reduce the number of initial trades. A higher value may lead to a more conservative approach.
Initial Take Profit This parameter sets the initial Take Profit level in points for the EA's trades. Take Profit is the price level at which the EA will close a trade with a profit.
Average Take Profit Average Take Profit represents the expected average profit target in points for the EA's trades. It provides a way to balance the profit expectations with risk management.
Breakeven Breakeven is the price difference in points at which the EA will move the stop loss of open trades to the entry price. It's a tool to protect profits by ensuring that a trade doesn't turn into a loss once it has moved in the desired direction.
Risk of Balance If set above 0, this input defines the risk percentage of your account balance that the EA is willing to expose in a single trade. It's a way to manage risk dynamically based on your account's size.
Initial Lots This parameter sets the initial lot size for the EA's first trade. Lot size represents the volume or quantity of the asset you're trading.
Lot Exponent for Next Order Lot Exponent determines how the lot size changes for each subsequent order in the grid. A value of 1 means a fixed lot size, while other values can increase or decrease the lot size exponentially.
Slippage Slippage is the maximum allowable deviation from the intended price at which the EA is willing to execute a trade. It helps manage execution risk in fast-moving markets.
Order Comment Order Comment allows you to add custom comments or labels to the orders placed by the EA. This can be useful for tracking and distinguishing orders when reviewing your trading history.
