Very good if you are looking for high risk. Im running on four different accounts and are more then 100% after two months on all four. But had two drawdowns of 50% so treat it like high risk. I would not recommend running when market is low liquidity like near the big holidays.

I have rented for a month, and the first night three winning trades, I hope you continue this well in forward even with the news about Italy and Trump, Mark is very attentive and responds immediately with any questions.I will make a comment when I finish the product rental and if it is positive, buy the expert finally. I hope that Mark will continue to improve the expert advisor. Thanks

14.12.2018. I am very angry because the last day of rental of the EA, 4 BUY (Eur/Usd), when the market is in range or downtrend, in lost leave and the EA has closed them to me automatically to the hour in which it expired, I suppose, the rent. Practically the expert advisor has made the same operations as the cheaper Hamster Scalping and Hamster Lite that is free. Would be better Mark's support to say when to put the expert On or Off based on market volatility or high impact news.
