How to install SAR TRADER EA

Follow this guide to setup SAR TRADER ea


Each user receives a license to use the expert advisor on 1 real account and 1 demo account. If you want to use the EA on more accounts, you must buy an additional license.


If you change accounts in the future you can send us an email and we will move your license to your new account. We will move your license to a new account a maximum of 5 times for each purchased product. When we move your license to a new account, your old account will no longer be valid to use the expert advisor on.

 

Provide us with your account details:

During check-out when buying the expert advisor, you will be asked to provide us with account information for 1 demo account and 1 real account. We need the following information for both accounts:

  1. Account number.

  2. Account holder full name (Your full name).

  3. Account broker name.

If you did not provide the above information during check-out, please send us a mail at algolabfx@gmail.com with the necessary information to unlock your license. You need to provide us with your order number or send the email from the same email address as you gave us during check-out


Your personal copy or SAR TRADER:

Once we have received the necessary information form you, we will unlock your license and send you your personal copy of the expert advisor. This copy will only work on the two accounts you provided information to.


We guarantee that you will receive your copy within 2 business days after we have the necessary information from you.



Use the EA on a stable VPS with low latency and close proximity to your brokers server:

Expert advisors perform better with fast trade execution. It is therefore best to install it on a good VPS (virtual private server). We use FXVM and have no issues with connectivity or speed.


Choose the VPS server location that is closes to your brokers server. We use IC Markets and choose New York for our VPS server, as ICM has their trade server in NY.


If you do not have a VPS already and choose to use FXVM, we will appreciate if you use our affiliate link:

  2. Open 1 EURUSD chart - change it to the M15 timeframe.

  3. If you see a buy and sell button in the top left corner of the chart, right click on the chart window and unselect "One Click Trading".

  6. Go to the "Common" tab and make sure the check box to "Allow Algo Trading" is checked.

  7. Click "ok" in the bottom right corner.

If installed correctly you will see a blue "hat" icon in the top right of the chart, next to the name of the expert advisor and the EA will start placing pending orders if time is within the EA's trading session.


Note that the comments displayed in the top left corner of the chart only displays after the first incoming tick. If you load the EA during weekends or when the market is closed, you will only see a blue box with no comments. Once the market opens the comments will be displayed on top of the blue box.


If you have any questions or need help to set up the EA, you can book a personal setup call.
