How BrightTrio built-in Arbitrage Works?

How the strategy works: Let's say we have 3 accounts: A, B, and C. We have option 1 - opening the first lock at the start of the strategy (before the emergence of the arbitrage situation) or option 2 - opening the lock when an arbitrage situation occurs. 

Option 1 

The price on fast feeder and accounts A, B, C is the same. When the strategy is launched, the order is opened BUY on account 1 and SELL on account 2.

Option 2 

The price on fast feeder and accounts A, B, C is the same. When starting the order strategy, no openings.

brighttrio arbitrage step 2

Let's say there is a BUY arbitrage situation: the price for fast feed is higher than on slow accounts A, B, C by diff to open - this parameter is specified in the settings of the program. For each traded instrument, the program will open a BUY order on account A and applies Stop Loss (SL), Take Profit (TP), and Trailing stop to it. When the trailing stop is triggered, or TP, instead of closing a BUY order, the program will open a SELL order on account B, thus the most fixed profit and locks the BUY order.

There are no differences in the program actions when option 1 or option 2 is enabled. 

When a BUY arbitrage situation occurs: the price for fast feed is higher than for slow accounts A, B, C by the amount of Diff to open, the program will close SELL order on account B.

At the same time, the program will create a virtual BUY order at the closing price of the SELL order and applies Stop Loss (SL), Take Profit (TP), Trailing stop to it. Note that the virtual order exists only in the program memory and is not sent to the broker server. When triggering a trailing stop or TP, the program will open a SELL order on account C, thereby fixing profit and locking the BUY order.

When a SELL arbitrage occurs:  price for fast feed is less than slow accounts A, B, C by the amount of Diff to open, the program will close BUY order on account A.

brighttrio arbitrage step 6

At the same time, the program will create a virtual SELL order at the closing price of the BUY order and applies Stop Loss (SL), Take Profit (TP), Trailing stop to it. When the trailing stop is triggered, or TP, the program will open a BUY order on account B, thereby capturing the profit and locking the SELL order.

Conditions to mask arbitrage trading

Thus, several conditions will be fulfilled that will mask the arbitrage trade:

1. One account will never have both a BUY and SELL open trade instrument

2. The "life" time of the order can be indefinitely long and is configured in the program.

3. The pause between orders for one trading instrument shall also be determined in program settings

4. The value of the fixed profit (Min profit) is also determined by the program settings.

Thus, when analyzing the account, the dealer will not see more than one sign of arbitrage trading such as

1. Short-term orders

2. Multi-pip orders

3. Locking of profits in several pips, opposite to directed order

4. Frequent orders at a time of high market volatility
