Automate Trades using EA or signals?

 
I am new to this website and found some ways to automate the trades using EA or signals. I'm not sure which one should I choose due a lot of options available in EA and signals tab. So which should suit for me as a beginner in following automatic trades, EA or signals?

If you are a beginner you may find EAs a little harder to setup and use, on the other hand signals its an easier way to see how trading works.

Since signals also have some risks, I would advise you to find a signal that interests you and copy it with a demo or a small real account to check how it works, before you connect it with more money.
