Silent Officer for MetaTrader 4 is a tool that brokers would like you NOT to have.
The Extended version has all functionalities of the Standard product, plus hidden pending orders. With the Extended version, you also get the Standard version for free as a separate product (see below for details).
It has been designed in response to three trader's requirements:
a) Trade setup and Risk management: setup a new trade in an instant and calculate the ideal position.
b) Hidden stop loss and take profit: keep your stop and take outside of the broker's order book.
c) Hidden pending orders: this Extended version also keeps your pending orders outside of the broker’s order book.
These functionalities can be used independently.

a) Trade setup & Risk management: setup a new trade in an instant and calculate the ideal position:
The script allows setting up a new trade in an instant and calculate the ideal position.
Based on a Risk, expressed in the account’s currency (for ex. number of dollars), and based on an Order Price Line and a Stop Loss Price Line, calculate the order size before passing this order.
Based on a Take Profit Price Line, calculate the expected profit (in account's currency).
Risk and Money management should be the essential key in any trading system. This tool allows to calculate the ideal size and to check if the trade should be taken.
If an order already exists, or if an order is created, either market or pending, the Order Price Line is replaced by the order’s price.
b) Hidden stop loss and take profit: keep your stop and take outside of the broker's order book:
If the Auto-Close parameter is switched on and there is an opened market order, then the order will be closed if either the Stop Loss Price Line or the Take Profit Price Line is reached. Your "soft orders" remain hidden from the broker at all times.
Keeping trade’s expectations and risk-tolerance private should always be included in a trading system, especially when contracting with retail brokers. Whether you trade with retail forex, spread betting or pseudo-ECN brokers, hard Stop and hard Take orders (i.e. Stop and Take values added to a MT trade) are red flags for brokers who try stop hunting and trades reconciliation.
The Stop Loss Price Line and the Take Profit Price Line can also be used as a trailing exit if you use trailing stop or trailing take strategies.
c) Hidden pending orders:
An additonal mode will set a pending entry on the chart, for a Buy Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Limit and Sell Stop order.
If the market meets this entry, then the script will create a market order. The order's lots will be the value that the script has calculated.
Keeping potential trade entries private should always be included in a trading system, especially when contracting with retail brokers. Whether you trade with retail forex, spread betting or pseudo-ECN brokers, hard pending orders (i.e. pending Stop and Limit orders sent to the broker) are red flags for brokers who try stop hunting and trades reconciliation.
Silent Officer is a tool that should be part of all trading plans using MetaTrader. Count on this tool to keep your trading plan running smoothly trade in, trade out.
The script is easy to use and customisable.
Difference between Silent Officer Standard and Silent Officer Extended:
The Extended version offers:
>> all functionalities of the Standard version
>> plus silent (offline) pending orders – Buy Limit, Sell Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Stop.
Implementing a policy of soft pending orders avoids broker’s stop hunting and limit avoidance.
When you buy the Extended version, you also get the Standard version if you wish to use them separately.
