A few backtesting reports are posted on the official site. We have analyzed one of them here.
From the above strategy tester report using the aggressive trading style, we can see a timeframe of H1 was used for the USDJPY pair using the EveryTick model. For an initial deposit of $10000, a total net profit of 956728.63 was generated. A total of 406 trades were executed for the test executed from 2015 to 2022. Profitability of 74% and a profit factor of 2.73 were present. The maximum drawdown for the account was 43.53%. From the results, we can see the drawdown is high which is not as claimed by the vendor. Such a high drawdown is indicative of a risky approach.
Live trading results verified by the myfxbook site are present. Here is one of the accounts working on the USDJPY pair and the leverage of 1:500 on the MT4 terminal.
From the above stats, we can see the FX robot has generated a total profit of 427.75% and an absolute profit of a similar value. The daily and monthly profits are 0.31% and 9.95% respectively. A drawdown of 22.86% is present for the account that started in August 2020 with an initial deposit of $1000. A total of 134 trades have been executed with 69% profitability and a profit factor of 2.31.
From the trading history, we can see varying lot sizes ranging from 0.10 to 0.34 are used. The big lot sizes, low profits, and the drawdown exceeding 20% show that the approach is risky and can harm your capital. Comparing the results with the backtests we find that while the drawdown is higher in the backtests, the profits are lower in real trading indicating the performance is below average.
Unfortunately, we could not find user reviews for this FX EA on trusted review sites like Trustpilot, Forexpeacearmy, etc.
