News Catcher Pro is a mean-reversion strategy that uses intraday seasonal volatility patterns caused by high-impact news events. It enters the market at a certain time shortly before a high-impact news event occurs. It does not trade frequently!

Supported currency pairs: GBPUSD, EURUSD, EURGBP

Recommended timeframe: M5

MT5 version can be found here

EA is FIFO compatible

The EA does not use martingale or grid, each trade protected by a stop loss!

To backtest the EA you should download the news events data file ‘NewsEvents.txt’ and copy it to the common MT4/5 directory – ‘\Common\Files’ (File – Open Data Folder -> Up to ‘Terminal’ – Common – Files). The data file can be found in the Comments section.
