Features of Signal Factory.

The vendor does not reveal much info on the company and the developer/professional experts’ team. There is no info on the founding year, location, the expertise of analysts, phone number, etc. For support, the vendor provides links to the Telegram channel, Facebook, and Twitter pages of the company. The lack of info on the company and the support raises suspicion on the reliability of the service. 

Further, the website does not provide info on the signals and other services that the company provides.  The other products besides the signals that the company offers include a trade copier, a gold trade copier, and the Telegram news package. 

As main features, the vendor provides the following:

  • The effective alerts of the company make it easy to get the best results due to the tough conditions the team uses for generating the signals.
  • You can use your existing account for the alerts without having to open a fresh account.
  • There are no hidden costs present unlike other services that force you to use a specific broker.
  • This is an independent service that will keep the spreads intact without the worry about expensive expansion.

We could not find a money-back guarantee which raises suspicion on the reliability of the package. An Algobot trade copier, gold trade copier, and a Telegram news package are the pricing packages for the other products of the company. While the Telegram News package costs $49.99 per month, the other two packages cost $199.99 per month each. 

Trading strategy

As per the vendor, the experts’ team does not use the Martingale method or other similar methods that are considered dangerous. Instead of measuring a provider’s performance using the percentage or profit, the net pips change is calculated for assessing the performance. 

The vendor claims that only profitable accounts are displayed on the official site. Once an account loses its initial balance, the signals of the account provider are not offered until it turns profitable. There is no further info on the strategy. 

Furthermore, the vendor does not offer details regarding the recommended deposit, currency pairs, timeframe, etc. The lack of info raises a red flag for this service.

Verdict
Signal Factory claims to provide accurate alerts that help you obtain the best results with low risk. While the vendor boasts a global user community, there is not sufficient proof of good performance. The verified results indicate the account is performing poorly. Furthermore, there is no explanation of the approach used. The lack of vendor transparency, absence of adequate support, and no money-back guarantee are other downsides we found with this service.
