Features of True Range Pro.

We could not gather much info on this FX EA as the developer provides very little info on the functionality and features. From the details provided the features of the FX robot include 100% automation, hard SL for each trading position, dynamic TP, high spread protection, and fixed and automated volume settings. 

This ATS works mainly on the EURUSD and GBPUSD pairs and uses the M5 and M1 timeframes.  There is no info on the recommended deposit. Weltrade, IC Markets Raw Spread are some of the accounts recommended for this FX Robot.

Other than mentioning the grid and night/intraday scalping approaches, the developer does not explain the strategy. This makes us suspect the reliability of the approach.

Trading results

The developer provides backtesting reports for this FX EA. Here is a strategy tester report for the EURUSD pair done from 2017 up to 2020. 

Backtesting result for True Range Pro.

The modeling quality for the test was 98%. We prefer the quality to be 99% or more as it provides a more detailed insight into important features like the slippage, spread, etc. A total net profit of 65363.12 was generated from an initial deposit of $3000. Out of 1914 trades, the profit trades took up 82.81% and the profit factor was 3.54. The drawdown value was 16.47%.

A real USD account verified by the myfxbook site is present. Here is the trading result for the account that uses automated trading with the leverage of 1:400 on the MT5 platform.

Advanced stats of real trading results for True Range Pro.

From the trading stats, we can see the EA has generated a total profit of 202.23% and an absolute profit of 190.05%. The difference between the two values makes us suspicious of the effectiveness of the approach used. A daily profit of 0.21% and a monthly profit of 6.49% are present for the account. The drawdown for the account is 23.11%. For a deposit of $2074, the account started in March 2020 has completed 682 trades with an 84% profitability and a profit factor of 3.33. 

From the trading history, we see a lot size of 0.11 or 0.12 is used for the trades. The big lot size and high drawdown further confirm that the strategy used is of a high-risk category. Compared to the backtesting report, the drawdown is higher which confirms our suspicion about the risky strategy.

Customer reviews

There are no user reviews for this FX EA on reputed third-party sites like Forexpeacearmy, Trustpilot, etc. We prefer feedback from such sites as they provide an unbiased view of the performance, support, and other pertinent features. The lack of user reviews indicates this is not a popular system. Although a few user reviews are present on the MQL5 site, since the site promotes the product, the feedback may be manipulated.

True Range Pro promises a profit of 10% up to 40% per month with its smart grid and scalping approach. Our analysis of the FX robot reveals several downsides that prove the claim of the developer is not true. To begin with, there is no proper explanation of the approach. While the developer provides backtests and real account results, they reveal a risky approach is used. While the EA is not overpriced, there is no money-back assurance which makes us suspect the reliability of the system. To conclude, we do find this is not a trustworthy FX EA.
