Redshift Characteristics

Redshift is designed by Marco Solito and published on the well-known EA’s platform (MQL5 market) on December 31, 2020. It was updated several times. The current version is 1.80.

Redshift: Characteristics

There are some features explained. It’s not enough to make a wise decision, but it’s at least something:

  • Redshift was designed to run charts automatically.
  • The robot was tested with 99.90% modeling quality, real spreads, and slippages. 
  • The money-management system covers all open deals with calculating and placing SL and TP levels.
  • The expert advisor can be used on every broker without any restriction.
  • The system requires an ECN account to work with the lowest possible spreads.
  • The same we have for a VPS service. It increases execution speed by 50-200 times compared with the home PC.
  • We can set the leverage on the lowest possible level 1:10 or increase it.
  • The minimum deposit can be $100.
  • If we write a testimonial (positive?), we can get another copy of the product for free.
  • There’s an MT5 version available as well.
  • We have a list of all settings grouped up: Redshift Settings, Money Management Settings, Indicators Settings, Trading Hour, Trading Days, Trading Directions, and Trading Settings.

Currency Pairs, Strategy & Timeframe

  • The MACD indicator that is used for trend trading can find the best Entry Points for new trades.
  • The robot doesn’t use Grid or Martingale, as the developers insisted.
  • It works with five cross pairs USD/CAD, AUD/USD, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY.
  • The time frame, according to the following backtest, is M15.

Conclusion

Redshift runs on a real account trend and counter-trend strategies. The presentation is short and doesn’t answer all our questions. The trading results show that the system isn’t stable for now. The robot should be checked for several months, not less, because it’s a young trading solution to invest now.
