Introducing the New TradeManager - HOM (Holistic Order Manager)

Guaranteed: Try it once, and you will never, ever like to trade without it.

Traders trading forex/futures instruments on MetaTrader4 platform usually spend considerable amount of their time entering their order and manage it. If you were looking for ways to automate all aspects of order life cycle, or if you were searching and waiting for some tool or expert advisor to do so, your wait is over. Holistic Order Manager (HOM) has arrived. HOM is very sleek, extremely responsive and simple to operate expert advisor. HOM is feature rich so as to allow you to focus and concentrate where your 100% attention is required – Technical Chart Analysis to make buy or sell decisions, and deciding order’s auto management style. HOM is extremely customizable, such that trader can adjust it their liking and trading style.

HOM is not just an expert advisor for MetaTrader4 platform, but it’s a complete system in itself. HOM runs inside only one chart, and can handle all aspects of order entry and management for all the instruments allowed and traded in the broker’s MetaTrader4 platform. You can predefine default initial risk method to open order entry controls. HOM can manage different trailing method for each order separately. There is no need to launch HOM expert advisor in separate charts for different currency pairs and different timeframes to manage orders. You have option to create phantom orders and they are saved internally in HOM on your machine. So, in worst case, if broker’s Metatrader4 platform is crashed/closed or internet connection is lost, and when platform is reopened later, it will start monitoring all phantom as well as live orders again. HOM can work in two instances concurrently (one in live/demo account and another one in strategy tester) without interfering with each other. This unique feature will allow you to do back testing in Strategy Tester during dull market hours, while your active live orders are managed by HOM. You don’t need to open two instances of MetaTrader4 platform in order to have live and tester mode run concurrently.

If you are serious about your trading business, and can spare about an hour of your precious time, we would like you to watch complete introduction to HOM video below. If you are short on time, please glance at all the features available in HOM with their very brief videos below.

HOM - Expert Advisor Input Parameter List

Holistic Order Manager Expert Advisor Parameters

  • Risk Model (%/L/$ [: split %+%... [: TrailCode [* RRRatio]]])

    Risk Model is the most versatile and important parameter of HOM system. This sets up the default behavior of HOM system. It is setup as text value. It has three parts, each separated by colon (:) character and in specific order. First part is required. Second and third parts are optional. If you need to define part 3, you must also define part 2 before it.

  • Allow Phantom Orders

    This parameter takes true/false value. If it has true value, HOM System will allow you to place all orders as phantom orders. That means no order will be entered into Broker’s platform until current market price reaches your entry price criteria. You can change any phantom order later on in the system before it is executed. If this parameter has false value, HOM System will not create phantom order, but based on order entry criteria, it will create pending stop or limit entry orders in Broker’s platform for execution.

  • Allow Auto Order Management

    This parameter takes true/false value. If it has true value, HOM System will automatically manage Phantom Stop and Target for all orders in the system. It will also move Phantom Stop based on trailing method specified for each and every live order in the system. If this parameter has false value, it will not manage any orders, and all orders will be closed by Broker’s platform based on Hard Stop and Target set.

  • Allow Rounding to Pip

    This parameter takes true/false value. If it has true value, HOM System will automatically round all order prices based on buy or sell order. For buy order stop and limit entry, as well as target prices will be rounded up to closest pip, and Phantom and Hard Stop will be rounded down to closest pip. It is opposite for sell order. If this parameter has false value, all prices will be at the prices based on where exactly the order is clicked on the chart. This works for each and every price control during order entry and modification. Even after setting default parameter choice, you can override it for individual price control during order entry and modification. You can press SHIFT key while changing any price, and it will do opposite of this parameter. If rounding is on, for example, and if you want to move Phantom Stop to exact price (1.30017) from current rounded price (1.30100), you press SHIFT while moving Phantom Stop control to 1.30017 and drop it. It will stick the control at exact price. It is opposite behavior if this parameter value is false.

  • Hard Stop away from Phantom Stop (in points)

    This parameter takes integer value. It sets the distance in points for Hard Stop from Phantom Stop during initial order entry, and while auto adjusting Phantom Stop based on trail code set for order.

  • Hard Target away from Phantom Target (in points)

    This parameter takes integer value. It sets the distance in points for Hard Target from Phantom Target during initial order entry, and while auto adjusting Phantom Stop based on trail code set for order.

  • Adjustment from current chart price (in points)

    This parameter takes integer value. Sometimes there is difference between Bid price printed on Broker platform’s charts and the actual Bid price in the market shown on window when you click “New Order” to place manual order. Because of this difference you order will be executed before or after when it should get executed. If this is the case, you can set the difference in points here, and HOM System will open your order exactly when your entry price is at price in the market.

  • Open Slippage (in points)

    This parameter takes integer value. You can define the slippage in points allowed while opening the order. Usually during fast markets, your order may not get filled at your desired price. In that case you can set the worst price you will allow away from your entry price. If the market price moves away fast from your entry price, HOM System won’t execute your phantom order entry.

  • Close Slippae (in points)

    This parameter takes integer value. You can define the slippage in points allowed while closing the order. Usually during fast markets, your order may not get filled at your desired price. In that case you can more room for your order to get closed away from your Phantom Stop price. If the market price moves away fast from your Phantom Stop price, HOM System won’t execute your Phantom Stop loss, but let the Broker platform close your order at Hard Stop loss.

  • Workspace Area on Chart (in %)

    This parameter takes numeric value. Here you can define Workspace area for HOM System in which the menu is displayed. You have to account for the area need for order modification controls to be displayed. This is the percentage of whole chart’s real estate in which HOM System is running.

  • Pause TFs in Strategy Tester (Colon Separated)

    This parameter takes string value. Here you can set the times frames, separated by colon (:) character, available in strategy tester where you can pause the chart moving at fastest speed. You can use standard time frames allowed in the pre-entered field. You can remove the time frames code you don’t want to use from the list.

  • Color Scheme (Colon Separated)

    This parameter takes string value. Here you can define color scheme for HOM System. This parameter requires exactly 7 color codes separated by colon (:) character. The color codes can be set with RGB values or pre-defined color codes from following image.

    Read More..
  • Log Code

    This parameter takes integer value. It is set to default of 0 which mean no logging. In case of issues it can be set to different values to track down bug in the system.

HOM - Phantom/Pending Order Entry

Phantom/Pending Order Entry

Single-Click Order Entry Control: You have to press CTRL key while clicking anywhere on visible chart for order entry controls to appear. If the price where the mouse is clicked is below BID price, it will set order for stop entry short. If the price is above the current BID price, it will set order for stop entry buy. If you also have SHIFT key pressed along with CTRL key, when you click the mouse button on the active chart, it will set the order for limit entry short (if price is above current BID) or limit entry buy (if price is below current BID). It will automatically set the Phantom Stop depending on the default trail code visible in trail code field in the menu. If the value is OFF or MAN, it will be 10pips away from entry price. Hard Stop will be behind the Phantom Stop loss price at a distance defined in HOM parameters. Number of sub-lots and their profit targets will be set according to the default risk:reward ratio set in HOM parameters. You can move limit order price before Phantom Stop loss price, if you want to bracket entry price around current market prices. If current BID price reaches limit entry price before reaching stop entry price, the order will be place with better risk:reward ratio. You can move any order entry control on Chart area, and drop at new location. Control’s existing value will be changed to new value.

  • Stop Entry control for your order.
  • It will display if your order is for Buy or Sell. Whether Stop Entry or Limit Entry order. How many lots will be opened based on your risk criteria. At what price it will be opened if market price reach there. How much is the Risk to Reward Ratio for the order.
  • Phantom Stop control for your order.
  • It will display the price at which Phantom Stop is set for your order. It will show how much loss, in pips, dollar amount, and percentage, your order will have compared to Stop Entry price.
  • Phantom Target control for your order.
  • It will display 1st sub-order’s detail information. No. of lots in your order, desired target price, how much profit in pips, dollar amount, and percentage the order will make compared to Stop Entry price.
  • If you have defined phantom order to be split in Risk Model parameter, you will have multiple targets. In that cast for each extra sub-order it will display target control at twice the price location as first Phantom Target from Stop Entry control.
  • Just like No#06, it will display 2nd sub-order’s (if any) detail information. No. of lots in your order, desired target price, how much profit in pips, dollar amount, and percentage the order will make compared to Stop Entry price.
  • Hard Stop control for your order.
  • Limit Entry control for your order.
HOM - Modify Phantom/Live Order
  • Order control shows current order active for modification in workspace area. The text of order control is colon separated. First part indicates if it is Phantom/Live order. “G” means phantom order, where as any number means magic# of the live order in Broker platform. Second part is actual order number. Last part is the currency pair in which the current order is placed.

    If you want to modify any price parameter, simply drag corresponding control from workspace area onto the chart area at the price level you want, and drop it. It will round up/down the price and magnet to the closest pip in the direction of the trade. In buy order Stop Entry, Limit Entry, and Profit Target prices will be rounded up (e.g. 1.30012 rounded to 1.30020, and Phantom and Hard Stop prices will be rounded down (e.g. 1.29997 rounded to 1.29990). It is the opposite for sell order. If “Allow Rounding to Pip” is set to “true” in #HolisticOrderManager parameter list, and still don’t want prices to round, you can press SHIFT key while dropping the control to stick at the exact price where it is dropped.

    When any of the price control is changed, the order control will change color from yellow to red indicating change made. You can drag and drop the order control in chart area on the other side of cursor line. It will modify the order in HOM as well as in Broker terminal and reset the EA menu. For live order, if you want to partially close the order to book some profit or reduce some risk, you can enter the lot size you want to close at the end of order control text. You can right click on order control, select Text Properties, and update Text property. For example, 2:999999999:GBPUSD-0.10 means close 0.10L from order#999999999 with magic#2 on GBPUSD pair. You have to manually make sure that you don’t enter more lots than there are in order, otherwise it will display error message.

  • Stop Entry control shows where phantom order should be executed, or the price where current live order was placed. You can move this control only for phantom order modification.

  • Limit Entry control shows location where to place limit entry order price is. You can change Limit Entry to be active or inactive depending on its position. If the Limit Entry control is behind Phantom Stop or Hard Stop controls, then it is inactive. If it is placed ahead of Phantom Stop control, it is active and the market is bracketed with SE and LE prices. Order will get executed at better risk:reward, if current Bid price reaches LE price first. If current Bid/Ask price is between Stop and Limit Entry controls, and Limit Entry control is before Phantom Stop control, then the current market price is bracketed. In that case if current market Bid price reaches Limit Entry before reaching Stop Entry, order will be placed in the market with better risk:reward ratio.

  • Phantom Stop control shows location where to place the order’s hidden stop loss price is. This stop loss will not be visible in the Broker’s platform. It will be stored internally in HOM for active order management. This is the stop loss price where your order will be closed even before reaching your Hard Stop loss price.

  • Hard Stop control shows location where current order’s stop loss. This is the price entered in Broker’s platform. It is a last chance protection for your order. If in fast moving markets, if HOM is not able to close your order at Phantom Stop, Broker’s platform will close your order at or beyond Hard Stop price.

  • Profit Target control shows where your first target is located for phantom order. In case of live order it will show Phantom Target where if price reached, HOM will close your order at profit.

  • Profit Target control for split order 2 or more. This will be visible only if split orders are defined in #HolisticOrderManager Risk Model parameter.

If “Rounding to Pip” is true, for no. #2 to #7, you can stick to exact price by pressing SHIFT key while dropping control on chart area. It’s the opposite behavior, if “Rounding to Pip” is false. Pressing SHIFT key while dropping control on chart area will magnet prices to closest pip instead of sticking at exact price.
