an introduction

Welcome to the expert advisor Vikings guide.
In this article, I will review all parameters, and share some settings files.


Vikings It is an expert advisor that uses homemade indicators to analyze excess volatility.
When the EA finds a surplus, you can choose to run a trend, a reversal, or both at the same time.

The EA can work on any pair, mostly on large timeframes (I recommend H1 or more).

You will find attached groups of major peers added over time. The groups are downloadable at the bottom of this post.


The EA makes many trades. It works great with a cashback provider.

I have been using a cashback service provider for several years. This allows me to get back part of my commissions in cash, which is interesting for paying VPS and reinvesting. There is no need to create a new account, you can link your existing trading accounts. I have no issues with this provider, I am very happy with the service. It is well rated on Trustpilot, feel free to give it a try.
