The HAPPY EA 

The Automated Envelope/RSI/SMA Double in a Day trader

The Continuously trading MT4 Expert Advisor that let's you to use the ENVELOPES, SMA and the RSI to enter high probability trades and then to use the DOUBLE IN A DAY technique to manage and exit those trades - ALL ON A SET AND FORGET BASIS !!!

Overview

The Double in a Day EA has been one of our most successful Forex Expert Advisors.  It does however require some skill and experience to identify and enter high probability deals. Many clients who are not manual traders have asked us to find a continuously traded , Set and Forget solution that uses the principles on the Double in a Day technique but can make its own entry decisions.

The Happy EA (watch the video below) trades continuously on a set and forget basis. It enters BUY Double in a Day trades  when the RSI is oversold and the price is touching the lower envelope at the same time. It enters SELL trades when the RSI is overbought and the price is touching the upper envelope at the same time. The SMA is an alternative entry technique. Nice and simple.

The inputs are also very easy requiring settings for the Envelope, SMA,  RSI and a selection of 12 pre-programmed Double in a Day Strategies.

The settings use the timeframe and currency of the open chart which should ideally be 15 Minutes charts. Settings for the GBPJPY, GBPUSD and EURJPY are  supplied.

EA Inputs

The inputs for this EA are extremely simple and are shown below

To keep the EA simple and easy to use there are 12 preformated Double in a Day Strategies provided

    Hi Alex,

    I am currently not a user of the DIAD system but I have been following your updates via email very closely. I the video you uploaded to YouTube where you did a backtesting of the Happy Envelope EA with DIAD trade management. That completely impressed me! My work requires that I travel for up to 80% of my time, so having a system that can run practically 24/5 is a fantastic find for me, more so if it can automatically enter and manage your fantastic DIAD trades.

    I have a couple of questions which I hope you can help me with though.
    1) Does the Happy Envelope EA also contain the DIAD trade management once the trade is entered? From the settings it looks that way. I’m just asking to clarify because I know you also have a separate EA for managing DIAD trades already opened.
    2) Is there a way I could help test this EA? From what I’ve seen of it so far, this looks like one of best (if not THE best) EAs out there! I’d love to be part of the process and contribute in any way I can.

    Thank you again, Alex – you and your team have given the Forex community renewed faith!

    Regards.

      How it works is that the Envelope and RSI create the entry signal and the DIAD manages the trade

      This is going to be the simplest EA possible – The envelop system which is against the short term trend system clashes with the Multiple Moving Averages system which is more of a trending system. There is however a buy or sell bias setting that will do the job that you have in mind.

    Wins were quite impressive, but perhaps it needs an extra filter. Trades were being taken when the RSI was still below the twenty or above the eighty. Look at 9:30 – 9:55 for an example. Definitely, the system is worth looking at, have never seen the envelope used in a system.

    I would hope that a future edition would also let us attach our favorite DIAD settings
    to experiment with. I am quite happy, if I can consistently even get a smaller percentage
    on a smaller move.

    It will be most interesting to see it work and also have it available for back testing.

    I have always maintained that a good trade manager is the most critical part of a trade
    and DIAD certainly does that very well.

    Good stuff Alex.

        In regards to different DIAD settings:

        If possible, something like a 40% in 40 pips Diad setting for short term trades, would be a nice addition.

        I would be quite happy making even 10% in a trade – if I could do it often enough.

        Doubling is a trade is certainly appealing and the DIAD idea is great, but sometimes less is more, especially
        if you can reliably get less a whole lot of times.

        Or does this undo the whole principle of DIAD?

          Possibly not practical to go for 40 pip trades using a continuous system that trades 24/7 – may produce too many losers.

    Noticed in your video intro you had the RSI levels at 80/20 period 8, but the EA settings show 70/30 period 4. Video envelope period 8 deviation .22, EA setting shows period 4 deviation .20. I imagine the EA operates independent of the chart settings? The results shown in the video are for the EA settings, regardless of what is shown on the chart? Or is there interaction and a wrong chart setting will give different results?

    since this is not an upgrade for current owners of DIAD ea, what is the cost? Would like to see more back testing videos

    and how much should the account balance be? your running 50k which is not realistic for most people. seems like 20 loss in a row would destroy a small account of under 1k before the win comes to put it back to starting balance.

    • info@expert4x.com

      Reply Reply November 13, 2014

      20 losses will destroy any size account. You don’t have to risk your whole account – as shown you don’t need to use your whole account – you can specify what portion you want to use. With micro accounts your account balance can be quite low. $200 to $300 should be plenty.

      The cost of the EA has not been finalized but is likely to be $200 with a 50% discount to existing EAFactory clients.

    Hi Alex – Have you explored the ability of user choice to permit trailing stops per topup?

    === Trailing Stops ===

    use topup_1 TS = True/False
    start topup_1 = value in pips

    use topup_2 TS = True/False
    start topup_2 = value in pips

    use topup_3 TS = True/False
    start topup_3 = value in pips

    This would help lock in more profits if topups never quite make target.
    Just a thought. I realize the object is to Double in a Day, but having the option of realizing better profits on a stop out is not so bad either. I suspect that you have experimented with this option and I was wondering what results you may have found. My best ~ Demi

    At same time I appreciate these EAs do take a lot of work and research. Could this be the one that’s profitable consistently?
    I’ve never managed to do much with DIAD. It’s still a pending project that I haven’t got around to. But I would be very happy with this run of trades. Suggest there could be some drawdowns rather worse than this but it is looking good !
    Best to All.

    Reply Reply November 15, 2014

    This looks very good but there is one small change that could be made to make this a little bit more profitable. I have heard this taught by all trading instructors except for very few. And that is…break even! It does not make sense to be profitable and not lock in at least one or two pips. I enter a trade to make money, not break even. You cannot get rich breaking even. So how about break even plus one or two pips?? The initial and top up stop losses may need to be set larger to compensate.

    Hello Alex and Mary,

    I think you could release the EA with the basic entry strategy that you have discussed in the video and not many other entry strategies suggested by other readers. You might have other entry strategies in later releases as options. With massive risk/reward ratio in the DIAD, entry strategy is perhaps not as much important as it is to put the odds in your favour by entering into more number of trades.

    Many thanks for the developments so far, it is indeed a new way of looking at trading the forex market.

    A couple of months ago Alex sent out an email which said that the RSI Envelope continuous EA wasn’t robust enough and wasn’t producing adequate results. I’m curious what changed since then to where now it is producing over 500% in 98% of the tests. Was it simply the settings used?

    Also, have you tested it on lower gains (going for 50 pip gains to make 50% on the account instead of 100 pip gains to make 100% of the account)? I’m just curious if the results would be better going for smaller pip gains and % gains rather than larger gains.

    My experience with the RSI is that it misses a lot of signals. Instead of using it, the usage of stochRSI yields better returns. The way I trade is if the envelope/bollinger band/keltner channel is going UP, I only go long and vice versa. The signal is triggered once there’s a crossover in the stochRSI. I could provide some parameters for testing if you wish. All in all is a small modification in the new EA that’s worthwhile. Would you be willing to test it? Thank you.

    Reply Reply January 15, 2015

    All channel indicator is a matter of opinion & perspective. The PERIOD and the top & bottom limit determines how sensitive the signal is. It “missing” signals is quite arbitrary & a matter of perspective. RSI period of 2 is proven optimal tested by peiple far superior to everyone on this thread. Top channel line of 90 proven superior. In fact 90 and up proved to outperform 80 and lower. For bottom line, 10 and lower proved to outperform 20 and upwards. So I have always used RSI period of 2. Top line at 90. Bottom line at 20. Default majoral seem to be 80 & 20. That produces far more signals. 90 & 10 produces less but tends to be far more accurate. And there is no predictable indicator that tells you what is oversold or overbought. We are all just playing the statistical averages.

    I see the balance allocation was started with 200 of 230$ and going down up to 50$ of 80$ but still open 0.08 Lot, is this possible? Suggested for new version to make The lot adjustment taken from % balance (example: 80% of balance) automatically or from risk % automatically. So the Lot open will always new & refreshed according to new balance available

      It is not the lot sizing that must update – it is the balance allocated to the trading that must update. All lot sizing runs off the account allocation.

        understand that your system required balance to be update frequently. What I am talking about is my suggestion when new version available to make input parameter in “% OF BALANCE”, so the lot size will be automatically update each new trade.

    Hi Alex and Mary, What happened to the offer of the EA for 69 dollars for previous owners of the DIAD EA. I just purchased the DIAD EA on December 27th 2014. I would like to exchange my DIAD for this one since I just bought it not even a month ago or at least know what happened to the documentation of the 69 dollar offer. I emailed you all about this early last week and never heard anything back.

    Thank you very much for all of your hard work and creativity.

    In the email from Nov 20th, it states that existing owners of the DIAD EA could purchase the Happy Envelope EA for $69 to “cover current and future development, enhancements and support.”. That being said, why did the price double to $135 for existing DIAD EA owners? Additionally, back in Nov after weeks and weeks of testing and backtesting, you said it wasn’t robust enough so that’s why you weren’t going to promote or sell it. Now all of a sudden it’s making 500+%, so what changed since Nov?

    Hi Alex. I’m trying to set up a happy ea demo account test on a 15min XAUUSD chart. With the demo a/c funded at $1000 (leverage x 500), I set AccountAllocation to 200. The rest of the setup is per the gold settings from the happy ea site. I get following error:

    I suggested you make forward test in an account with real / demo money in fxblue live so result can be verifiy in forward test, NOT BACK TEST, so it can be like live proof daily and increase confidence of trader to buy your good EA.

    Because I have also two different EAs with more than 90% tick data can turn 100$ into 4.5Million$ in 1 year during strategy tester, BUT looser on demo account from 1Million$ turned into 98K$ within 1 week only. Holy Grail during tester but Holy S*** in reality.

      I am rather skeptical that spending a few hundred bucks buying this EA can produce amazing results. Like making $millions out of a few $hundreds

      I spent huge amount of dollars buying a ton of EAs that turned out to be useless trash. Frankly, how many of us actually benefited and make money out of these EAs? Maybe made a few hundreds and lost a few thousands?

      I never believe in an EA that automatically trade and make money for you. That is for sure.

      The best is still to learn the skill and trade them manually. That is my believe. And I have done that.

        There is no difference between manual & automating your trading strategy. The reason many people fail with ea is because they risk too much. Almost all of them cannot tell you how to calculate a proper risk lot size. Ask them to calculate a 1% risk lot size & I guarantee you they won’t know how to do that. That is the problem.

      Hi Mark,
      Running some tests on a demo account to see how that goes. Currently have it on the GBPUSD M15 chart using the settings which were the top performer 2014 using RSI hook only for the Happy EA previous tests. These have good profit, low draw down and high profit factor.
      For reference they are Exit 10, RSI 2, OB/OS 4, Entry 0, BIAS 0.

      Will update my results next week and see how things are going.

        Hi Tim, Thanks for your enquiry. Are you crazy? We never recommend real money trading of any EA unless you have traded in a demo account and you are perfectly happy with the results you are getting. Further more it is an upgrade phase – so are you going to live trade the old version or the new one.

        All EAs are meant for demo trading only. In demo back testing you will win tons of money. Try trading for real, the results would be extremely doubtful. You will lost more than you win. I have been trading for more than 3 years and no EAs had done me any good.

    I think there is “success” in back testing only. You have to buy the EA to forward test. Only then the “stories” will come out.

      Another problematic general comment. Many people who love back testing tends to be newbies. Experienced traders hate back testing. Why? Because it is a curve fitting trap! You fiddle & tweak just to see good result on back data and think that will be great in live trading. That is the trap. When people should be happy with a proven strategy then only go forward in live trading!

    I feel that the double in a day core & exit strategy is excellent. However, entries all seem haphazard especially when looking at the indicators vs actual initiated trades. And trades seem to open immediately always. I think entries codes need re-examination & we need the 2% – 4% risk option not just 5%. As mentioned in your video. Either it needs different entry method or the codes need to be looked at by ea factory coders. Entries just do not invite consistency. Thank you for listening.

    I’m a new DIAD and Happy EA owner (but I have some experiance trading FX) and so I’m still going through all the material, but I’ve noticed that some of the DIAD weekly trades have anticipated trends of less than 100 pips, which of couse is to be expected, but none of the 12 preformated Double in a Day Strategies provided with the Happy EA are below 110pips. I guess I expected to see a few sub 100 pip options, such as 60pip/50% of account, or a 80pip/50% increase . . . or something like that. I know the Happy EA is kind of new and that you guys at Expert4X have done some great work in optimising and then selecting the 12 preformated DIAD strategies, but I would really love to see more DIAD strategies added to the Happy EA, especally some sub 100pip/50% type options if possible, I think there might be a way to do this by only having one or two top up levels so that the BE and SL levels have enough room to breath. . . . what does the Expert team think about that, or am I being unrealistic in thinking the Happy EA might still work accetably with sub 100 pip trends that happen every day with our prefered baskat of currency pairs?
