The Overnight EA is a fully automated trading Expert Advisor, which uses technical analysis to take decisions based on various signals. It is originally intended to be used in the late hours of the night, where volatility is low, where we could scalp a few pips and avoid large drawdowns, however it could be used during any time of the day.
Overnight EA is designed to have a very high winning ratio, and low drawdowns. It averages between 5-7% monthly with a fixed lot size.
Using a VPS to run the EA is a must. A broker account with low spreads is also recommended.

Overnight EA has an optimization ratio which uses a variation of Sharpe and Sortino. It helps you get the most consistently profitable settings while optimizing, and gives you the ability to filter out any tests with a low trade count (The minimum accepted number of trades is defined in the input parameters). However, it is more reliable when the optimization period is longer (at least 1 – 1.5 years)

1) Past performance is no guarantee of future profitability.
3) This strategy always uses a stop loss, but its execution depends on your broker.
4) Night scalpers are dependent on good brokerage conditions, like low spread and slippage, which might be worse on high lot sizes.
