that depend your money if you use signal must more huge balance thats the trader. why? if the trader have huge drawdown small trader will die soon then the trader. thats :)
robot that depend the robot. bad robot bad gain. good robot good gain almost i see many mistake create the robot so no many gain or die
In my opinion it doesnt matter cuz both do losses.
I prefer the Robot, because there is no mental risks like hope or fantasy.
clear strategy with solid risk mmgt and high profit chance arethe true secret :)
EAs are inherently dangerous. There are a lot of things an EA will do in live mode that are bad and it may not do them in a back test. You need to know it will not re open a position that just got stopped out over and over again. I have seen positions opened and then closed hundreds of times in one minute. That is a lot of spreads and slippage to cover. You need to consider if the EA will have a position open over the weekend or when the market is closed or when the traders you are relying on to make a signal profitable are on holiday.
Manual trading has pitfalls. You need to NEVER vary the size of your trade by your feelings about a particular set up and ALWAYS trade the size you back tested for. etc.
An EA that can be trusted an easily notice trade setups and act on them 1000 times faster than following an indicator can.
The greatest benefit of trading with profitable EAs is that you can live your life in the world and not spend all day every day sitting at a screen being bored. If you can trade profitably at all you can trade more profitably with (Well designed and written) EAs.
thanks that was an interesting post / read.
if a signal provider deposit more cash to his/her account then the subscribers should add funds too
otherwise they will face a big risk
The risk is present from the moment the 1st transaction is initiates. I don't think that the majority of the subscribers align their account with the provider one.
It would be nice to have a sort of an alert system to notify the subscriber when the provider account face changes in terms of deposit/withdraw.
