AmazingEA (Auto) is a Straddle Trading Program for MetaTrader 4 and 5 that places Buy and Sell Stop Orders respectively above and below the current price of a Currency Pair.
It has a timer and the idea is to setup a Straddle just prior to major News events.
From Version 8 onwards, event setup is automated.
The EA can download upcoming events from the Forex Factory News Calendar, and setup the timer for trading without intervention.
Although versions earlier than 8.00 were free, the Automatic version 8.00 onwards requires a license to use Live.
The Demo version is still free.
The EA will be delivered in EX4 / EX5 format and coded to a minimum 6 characters of text contained in the account name.

This means you can use it on multiple accounts as long as they have the coded text in the Account Name.
Licenses are available through the AmazingEA website, please see https://amazingea.wordpress.com/purchase for details.
The major new feature in Version 9 onwards is the ability to self load all settings including:-
1) Automatically load upcoming News Events from the FF Calendar
2) Decide whether to trade each event
3) Choose which Currency Pair to use
4) Load all Trading Parameters Settings
This means you can choose whether to load the EA on 1 chart and let the settings spreadsheet dictate which events to trade.
Or load it on multiple charts and restrict the News Events to just those Pairs.
Other settings can still be loaded from the Spreadsheet. From 9.02, by default, the EA will *not* load settings from the Spreadsheet. If you are a new user, I highly recommend that you don't use this self loading feature until you are comfortable with the basics of how to setup the EA.
