RunwiseFX Configurable Strategy Automator

The product combines a manual trade panel with the ability to perform actions automatically in a highly configurable way. Actions include capturing indicator values and then based on those values raising alerts, open/close or partially close trades, scale-in, setting up pending orders, adjusting stop loss, take profit and more. On-chart controls can be configured, such as tick boxes and buttons, so can be fully interactive. The EA also handles money management, news events, hidden stop loss, take profit, pending orders, trailing stop loss, trade logging, etc. Multiple accounts are also supported.

Excellent Product. The Team at RunwiseFX, Best customer support in many years.

I see the benefits of using this EA for manual trading but it come into its own league when designing Automated trading. I think using freelance will not give you the level of support and built-in safety functions unless specified. Best investment for anyone willing to trade manually or auto, this in it self will save you money at the very least. Don't be afraid of the highly configurable setting, its quite straight forward once explained. It only hard until you know.

My experience - I've had this product for few months

I'm using this product to design an automated strategy. Whenever I needed support (even Sundays) I have been given quick and clear response. I've done various minor tweeks to my EA, The team were patience and glad to help. I have no complaints.

Its more of an investment, Great value.

Nice product. But its bit complicated to understand.

There is enough space for improvement.

Also seller should add success rate for some of the popular strategies mentioned in his website

Have only used the tool for a few days, have had numerous emails with Mark regarding a custom rule, handled promptly and more than happy to assist to get it right, despite my limited understanding. This is a very worthwhile $150, even if you don't use the rules, it makes trading much quicker. Highly recommended.

Update 27/7 - having now used the tool for nearly 3 months and exchanging numerous emails with support, all of which get answered promptly and in a language I can understand, I can say this product is truly awesome, it is so configurable, I have been able to build an almost automated trading system using my own rules, my own settings and my own risk management strategies. Runwise should surely be the platform that others build off, it can do manual trading, automated trading and everything inbetween. Plus its all configurable unlike other EAs. Cannot recommend enough!

Excellent support from Mark. I use a MacBook Pro Retina running Parallels and the GUI control panel needed resizing to make it usable. Straightaway, Mark sorted this out making it possible for the user to resize the panel.

He has provided an excellent product which allows for disciplined, measurable and consistent trading. I thoroughly recommend this EA.

Great product! It's a bit intimidating to configure at first when you buy it but you don't need to worry. Just shoot Mark a message with what you're trying to accomplish and he will be right back in touch with you in no time. They will write out the rules for you so it's basically plug and play. This Automator can be configured to do pretty much anything you want, even read custom indicators. Outstanding customer service!! I highly recommend this product! Thanks for all your help, Mark!

Great product. outstanding Cust service. Mark seems like a genuine guy who knows what he is talking about. When chatting with him you'll feel he 's got a genuine interest in his product and is proud of improving its performance. You'll feel a bit shy the first time you download the EA as there is a lot of options and buttons. But Mark made a great instruction manual on his website that will take you 15-20 minutes to go through and then you'll see what's under the hood! So, all in all.... Whatever strategy you might have, you can duplicate it in this EA without going through the coding procedure. As well, if you bought an indicator, and love your indicator, but you're feeling that with a few adjustments, you'll be able to have more from your indicators without going through the process of coding, so you're at the right place. This EA has so much to offer, and it looks like the author has a lot of idea in its improvement. Great Job, and Thank you.

This is a fantastic tool which can be configured exactly how you want it to work. It’s works well when using it with your favourite indicators to set up automatic trading.

It takes a bit of time to get used to, especially the programming but the support is very helpful and will help you with any problems.

Overall, it’s a fantastic tool and I couldn’t imagine trading without it.
