If you want them to.......yes robots can be programmed to take over manually opened trades.

Depend on the EA, if the EA is set to recognize some MagicNumber, then it won't take over manual trade, the EA will only trade it's own magic number.

Good luck :)

............... and some EA that was coded to set trailing stop, take profit and stoploss etc can take over manual trade.
