According to the vendor, this is an ultra-fast EA that places error-free orders instantly based on a proprietary strategy. They have also claimed that the drawdown remains under 20%, hence preventing large losses. The EA only trades in the EUR/USD pair, offering liquidity levels and preferable volatility. There is no minimum starting deposit, but the vendor recommends depositing at least 2500 Euros for best results.
It is recommended that you place trades through the Key to Markets broker and load the EA on M5 charts. There are not enough details about the trading strategy, which makes it difficult for us to accurately analyze the profitability of the system.
This backtest was conducted from January 3, 2016 to August 19, 2020. For this time period, the EA has conducted 14,662 trades, winning 70% of them and generating a total profit of $9,356.32. The daily and monthly gains for this test were decent at 0.09% and 2.8%, respectively. In spite of the high win rate, we think the EA was following a risky strategy since the drawdown was quite high at 53.30%. The average win and loss for this backtest were 8.08 pips/$2.69 and -24.24 pips/-$4.11, respectively.
Here we have a live trading account on Myfxbook that was launched on September 3, 2020. To date, the EA has conducted 67,768 trades through this account, winning 69% of them. The win rate is slightly lower than the one we saw in the backtest. It should be noted that the account owner has hidden some of the key parameters like balance, equity, profit, interest, withdrawals, and deposits.
Similar to the backtest, the account has a high drawdown of 53.32%. This indicates a high risk of ruin. At this moment, the daily and monthly gains were 0.10% and 3.20%, respectively. The account has experienced a growth of 78.19%.
From the trading results, we can see that the EA is prone to losing consecutive trades. The average trade length is 14 hours and 6 minutes. We cannot see the lot size for the trades since the account owner has hidden it.
There are no reviews for this expert advisor in particular. However, on Forex Peace Army, there are some reviews for Elite CurrenSea. In one of the reviews, a user has mentioned experiencing high drawdown with this EA.
