One Plug-in, One Input, Endless Opportunities

FOREX and most other markets range approximately 80% of the time. Statistically speaking, that is a very large figure, and one definitely worth capitalizing on. That statistic is what gave Marko Nikolic the idea to create a highly specialized indicator that takes advantage of those bountiful market opportunities. We're not selling a robot or an automated trading system as we firmly believe that each trading strategy is as unique as the trader who uses it. Nor are we going to promise or guarantee any unrealistic returns. What we are offering, however, is a very effective trading tool that caters to your risk by seeking out qualified ranging, swinging, and retracing market behavior.

Unlike previous versions of MarketScalper PRO, version 10 comes programmed with a single user input - Probability. This parameter, although seemingly simple, in fact controls a complex set of algorithms that cater to user risk preferences. As suggestive by its name, Probability qualifies signals from least probable (value of 1, representing a minimum target success rate of 70%) to most probable (value of 10, representing 88% and higher).


The Anatomy of MarketScalper PRO


RAZOR-14 Scalping Engine

MarketScalper PRO 2017 features an all-new algorithmic framework. It is auto-adaptive, requiring just the user's risk appetite - all other calculations are automatically handled by the internal set of algorithms. The algorithms are quantitative and diverse in nature, considering multiple angles applicable to scalping, including price behavior, momentum derivatives, and extensive statistics before issuing signals.

Euro-Dollar: EUR/USD M5 with Probability set to 3

Dollar-Yen: USD/JPY H4 with Probability set to 2

Cable: GBP/USD M1 with Probability set to 3

Euro-Swissy: EUR/CHF M5 with Probability set to 4

Euro-Pound: EUR/GBP M5 with Probability set to 7

Dollar-Loonie: USD/CAD D1 with Probability set to 3


High Probability Mode

The High Frequency Mode (HFT) applies a completely separate algorithmic framework from the one used in non-HFT mode (Probability 1-10). The HFT algorithm is designed to track immediate momentum exhaustion in regards to broader investor interest, capitalizing on divergences between them. In other words, it looks for unsubstantiated (or unsustainable) price movement on a level more microscopic than strictly trend exhaustion. As result, MarketScalper PRO in HFT mode will issue an abundance of signals - many of them accurate within 1-3 bars of forecasted signal direction, but they require rapid action on trader's part.

Other applications of this mode include:

  • Binary Options with expirations set to 2-5 bars following the issued signal.
  • Swing Trading, by using HFT signals to close already open positions. For example, following an aggressive trend-geared indicator to enter a market (as price gains momentum), and HFT mode to exit, as soon as momentum exhausts and price action is on cusp of swinging in the opposite direction.

Below are some examples of MarketScalper PRO's High Frequency Mode

Scalping Dashboard

We took your feedback regarding older versions of MarketScalper PRO's dashboard (GUI) and rebuilt it to scratch. The redesigned dashboard is simple, fast, and only displays the essential information a scalper needs to know - namely, your Probability setting, inherent (background) market risk, succinct commentary (no metrics to decipher!), and icons representing your selected alert options. You can place the new dashboard in any of the 4 chart corners.


Continual Optimization

MarketScalper PRO's algorithmic engine (RAZOR), aside from being auto-adaptive, was also developed to be highly expandable. Algorithmic updates are published on quarterly basis, containing the latest behavioral market definitions and rules for the indicator to take advantage of. This process ensures that indicator performance remains optimal and at forefront of our algorithmic research. When MarketScalper PRO is attached to a chart, a message in the bottom-left will display the definition ruleset (Build) that the indicator is presently parsing. This text can be turned on or off.


Recently Added Features

  • Enhanced Alerts

    Email, pop-up, and push-to-phone alerts are now more readable, and include a PRICE LEVEL at which signal was issued. This was a widely requested feature by numerous clients.

    Audio alerts now also include options to assign a specific sound to each, Long (Buy) and Short (Sell) signal. There are 13 sound samples to choose from, including voice-overs announcing "Buy" and "Sell" conditions (both of which are defaults for their respective signals).


  • Expanded CountBars Functionality

    MarketScalper PRO has always featured the CountBars parameter, whose purpose is to let you specify and limit the number of bars considered in calculations. MarketScalper PRO now incorporates a visual component to this feature - a labelled vertical line that shows exactly how far back the calculations go.


  • Non-standard Time Frames, Chart Types

    Since Metatrader 4 supports only 9 standard time frames (M1, M5, M15, M30, H1, H4, D1, W1, MN), numerous free and paid 3rd party scripts have been developed to enable creation of custom period charts. MarketScalper PRO now natively supports all non-standard time frame charts, meaning you can use it with any period. Shown here is MarketScalper PRO scalping a 8-minute EUR/USD price action:

    Furthermore, MarketScalper PRO is also fully compatible with all non-time frame charts such as Range, Renko, etc.


  • Support for Higher Time Frames

    A much requested feature has always been the inclusion of higher time frame compatibility. That request is now reality, courtesy of the new engine that features rules especially written for higher time frames. MarketScalper PRO still performs best in H1 and lower due to their mostly ranging behavior, but it is now also capable of effectively detecting higher time frame turning points (see EUR/JPY H4 example below).


  • Support For Gold And Other CFDs

    Futures markets, primarily commodities, are highly reactive to most economic, political, and corporate fundamentals (news, reports). It is precisely this volatility that makes MarketScalper PRO exceptionally compatible with Gold and other commodity markets. Extensive multiple time frame back and forward-testing has yielded positive returns.

    USD30 (Dow30 index CFD derivative) M30


Set-up And Operation

MarketScalper PRO (including Mixer) takes a minute to install and its operation is as simple as drag-and-drop..

  1. Installing and updating the indicator: MarketScalper includes an installation wizard, which automatically installs the MarketScalper PRO and Mixer indicator package in seconds. The same wizard also serves as an auto-updater for future upgrades. You no longer have to worry about which file goes where - just double-click and let the installer do the rest.


  2. Start Metatrader 4, add MarketScalper PRO to a chart, and input your desired risk via Probability parameter (1-10).


  3. Once a turning point is detected, MarketScalper PRO will issue a signal via arrow, audio, pop-up, and/or push-to-phone alert. All alerts are issued on confirmation - above a new bar once the prior period closes. MarketScalper PRO never repaints.


    You may additionally set up Push-to-Phone Notifications and Email alerts. The first option forwards all MarketScalper signals to your smartphone (iOS and Android) in real-time, while second delivers all signals right to your inbox.



    Push-to-Phone Notifications is a feature found in all Marko Nikolic Investment Research software. Push notifications allow you to trade signals generated by the desktop version of Metatrader 4 (onto which MarketScalper is installed) without having to physically be next to the computer. Think of your desktop as a signal server, and your smartphone as a signal recipient. Once you set up MarketScalper on the desktop, you can run it 24 hours and execute signals as they are sent to your phone – Metatrader 4 mobile hooks to your broker for order execution.

    Push-to-Phone Notifications is a reliable and fast way of receiving the signals while on the go. If you prefer more traditional methods, the e-mail forwarding functionality is also built-in.


    If you have concerns about your internet connection, may optionally install MarketScalper on a Windows VPS server. We offer such service through our ChartVPS subsidiary, but there are many other VPS providers out there. Just make sure the VPS hardware is adequate (CPU, RAM) and that redundancy connections are in place (99.5% or higher uptime recommended).

  4. (optional) Use multiple instances of MarketScalper PRO, each with different Probability values, if your trading strategy demands it. For example, you could use high value (higher probability of success) to open trades, and low value (higher frequency of signals) to close, as soon as market loses steam. Add multiple instances of MarketScalper to the same chart, each with different Probability setting. For example, you could configure 2 instances, one with conservative settings (high probability) and the other with aggressive (low probability). You would then take advantage of signal confluence, opening positions when both instances are showing the same directional signal (within few bars).
