MarketScalper PRO Suite 2018 is a major update to the scalping framework, further improving the High Frequency Trading Mode through a new technology called Dimensional Intrabar Valuation (DIV) - this is an algorithmic extension that incorporates statistics, momentum, and price trendiness in its calculations to identify most probable short-term trading opportunities.

MarketScalper PRO 2018's Dimensional Intrabar Valuation - Technology Showcase

There are no graphical user interface changes or new parameters in this version of MarketScalper, the new technology has been passively embedded under the hood into the existing High Frequency Trading module of the framework. It affects the unfiltered HFT mode and its optional High Precision filter, which further qualifies only the most probable scalping opportunities. The regular, non-HFT Probability mode is unaffected and has not been modified because we were satisfied with its performance throughout the past year. As a reminder, HFT mode is activated by setting HighFrequencyTrading parameter to True. Once HFT is active you have the option of applying the High Precision filter by setting HighFrequency_Precision parameter to True.

Without further delay, here is a showcase of MarketScalper PRO 2018, running in High Frequency Trade Mode, augmented with the new Dimensional Intrabar Valuation technology.

As indicative by its name, the principle of High Frequency Trading concerns with employing high volume of trades to scalp small profits, cut small losses, or accumulate directional positions. This style of trading requires tighter Stop-Loss values and a broker with low trading costs (spread, commission, slippage). The alternative application for the HFT mode is to use it alongside a trend-following indicator like TradeBuilder or TrendSuite to build a more comprehensive trading system. You'd use trend-geared signals to open trades and MarketScalper's HFT signals to close, as soon as trend momentum begins to weaken.


Optional, Algorithmic Optimization

Clients looking to customize or further boost performance of MarketScalper can do so via our Software Development and Optimization service - the 2018 edition framework fully supports it. This process involves adding a special sub-algorithm to the main MarketScalper PRO framework, specifically developed with models that target behavior of client's requested market, time frame, or chart type. Since code is exclusively written for specific behavioral price patterns associated with the target market, the quality of signals is further improved. Clients interested in customization should contact us with details of their strategy or objective.


Fully Back-Compatible

The 2018 Edition of MarketScalper is fully back-compatible with older versions of the algorithm, such as v13 (2015 release). To make the 2018 edition emulate prior versions simply set Algorithm_Version parameter to either 13, 12, or 11, representing MarketScalper v13, v12, v11. An icon with the version number will be added to MarketScalper's dashboard indicating which algorithm is being emulated.


Expert Adviser (EA) updated to 2018

MarketScalper's EA add-on fully supports the new 2018 edition framework and its Dimensional Intrabar Valuation technology - it is also back-compatible with prior versions using the same emulation technique as described above.


Technical Improvements

The 2018 edition of MarketScalper was natively compiled in Metatrader 4 build 1090+ API environment. This improves technical performance (speed of calculations, memory management) and ensures that MarketScalper remains future-proof and compatible with upcoming versions of the platform.

The manual has been revised to cover all new features of MarketScalper 2018 (PRO, Mixer, EAs).
