the link you need to register: http://ec.forexprostools.com/
the news filter settings will look like this:
1. On/off news accounting – is the inclusion of a news filter
2. news currencies – these are currency pairs that need to be taken into account using a news filter
write the currency pairs with a capital letter separated by commas as indicated in the photo, if you want to use a news filter for these pairs
3. How many minutes before the news do not trade =300
this means not to trade if there are up to 300 minutes left before the news on the specified pairs, maximum if 301 minutes before the news, then trades will be opened for pairs for which there will be news
4. How many minutes after the news do not trade=1440
this means that only after the expiration of 1440 minutes (days) it will be possible to open transactions on currency pairs for which there was news
the strength of the news is indicated by an asterisk * where one star * is weak news
two stars ** medium strength news.
three stars *** strong news that can lead to strong movements and break levels..
I would recommend using the setting as is only to include three stars *** true and the Expert Advisor will only take into account these news.. but this is just my opinion.. if you think that you need to use all the news from one to three stars, use everything then.
