11 Important keys for your success!
1. The robot needs to run ALL the time from sunday midgnight GMT to Friday midnight GMT
2. You can trade manualy on top of the robot and the robot will automatically re-size the money is playing with depending on the exposition you are taking. It means if you are playing a lot manual, the robot will play less.
3 - We advice to test first the behavior of the robot in a demo account - just to let you the time to see what happen in your account. Let it run some weeks.
4 - When you are aware of the robot behavior, put a live account with the recommended amount of capital knowning the risk you are taking.
12 How to select one single pair 'ONLY' with the robots.
The recommended method to select a pair for example OnTheRiver with GBPCHF is to only display GBPCHF as instrument in your trading account. Select "Hide All" to go fast, then Symbols.
Then 'show GBPCHF' (in our examples). It's the best setting to be sure that only trades with GBPCHF will be played in your account and the "sure" way to do AND TO ATTACH THE EXPERT ADVISOR TO THIS PAIR.
Another other method is to enter in the settings of the expert-advisor the GBPCHF instrument in the instrumentfix field but we don't advice do that because you may forget to re-enter this settings if you move your EA....
