Presenting True Full Automation
We know what you’re thinking… “There are plenty of automated trading programs out there and some other brokerages even advertise them right on their websites. How is Automata FX different than any of these?” We’re glad you asked! In reality most of the “automated” trading programs found on the internet are nothing more than simple plug-in files for the MetaTrader trading platform, called EA’s or Expert Advisors. Usually, they are just a few simple lines of code installed in the “expert” directory of the MetaTrader software. These files are coded to identify a trading opportunity based on a specific technical indicator, a combination of indicators, or some other logic. When the market conditions identified by the EA are met, MetaTrader will then open a trade – and that’s about it. Exiting from the trade is done either using a stop loss when the trade goes bad, or a simple trailing stop, if a profit is reached. That’s pretty much all you get. There’s no trade management to speak of, and certainly no strategy to defend against a bad trade (other than with a stop loss).True trading strategists understand that this simply isn’t enough to be profitable in the long run. While, it’s true that some EAs can be profitable sometimes, the success an EA depends entirely on the quality of the signals given by the specific indicator or indicators it employs, and in today’s volatile and rapidly shifting markets, most technical indicators’ success rates have only been rated to be as predictably effective as a flip of a coin. Let’s face facts, if you’ve read this far, you’re not interested in those kinds of odds.
So why are some EAs able to advertise their amazing past performances?
This is a great question and it leads to the underlying reason that so many people suffer losses in programs that seem to have performed so well. The sad fact is that many EA developers simply over-optimize the settings of their preferred indicators to match up with a certain set of historical back data, and the EA is built purely on the hope that history will continue to repeat itself in the same way, over and over and over again. So what happens when next month rolls around, with fresh price data and new patterns? The market conditions change and that’s when most EA’s fail miserably. We all deserve so much more than that when it comes to making decisions about investing and trading our hard earned cash! That’s why at Automata FX, we offer real time access to our pre-built strategies, trading live in the market. Our traders have the option of taking their time and watching the strategies deal with the real time issues the market dishes out to us. You can’t get more transparent than that!
