A3C-AN - AUDNZD Trading with Engulfing
3 min read


A3C-AN Overview

A3C-AN is shared by Le Thanh Cong (Telegram: @LTCong), he is a member of the FXCE EA community.

A3C-AN trades DCA based on the idea of taking advantage of the short waves of the AUDNZD (also known as Aussie/Kiwi) currency pair. This EA only uses Engulfing candle under strict conditions in each candle.

AUDNZD is a currency pair that is less affected by major economic and financial events and often tends to last with sufficient volatility, so it is very suitable for DCA trading.

The A3C-AN configured on GigaFactory had been backtested from 01/01/2020 - 11/2/2022 with positive results of $1879.67 in profit after 34 months, which is almost 9 times than the biggest drop of $211.02.

A3C-AN's Trading Method

Trading strategy

The Engulfing candle set needs to comply with the following conditions:

  • The value of the 1st candle's body is 38 < x < 300 points

  • Candle 1 is a full-body candle with a body > 65% of the candle.

  • Candle 2 is a short-body candle with a body < 35% of the candle.

  • The value of the 2nd candle's body is > 14 points

When the abow set of candles appears, the EA will place an order based on the type of Engulfing

  • Buy Order: When Bullish Engulfing appears

  • Sell Order: When Bearish Engulfing appears

  • The trading volume for the first order is fixed at 0.01 lot and TP at 245 points.

Note: Because the spread of the AUDNZD pair can be up to 50-60 points, so only trade when the maximum spread is 35 points to limit the unfortunate slippage.

DCA Strategy

The EA will apply DCA up to 14 orders under the following conditions:

  • Each of the following orders will be separated by a certain number of points from the previous order, counting from the second order: 160; 85; 160; 160; 160; 160; 160; 200; 200; 200; 200; 200.

  • Starting from the 2nd order onwards, 0.01 lot will be accumulated for each order until the end of 14 orders: 0.02; 0.03; 0.04; 0.05; 0.06; 0.07; … ; 0.14 lots.

  • TP: 120 points.
