I’m a Romanian in my mid thirties; I have a very strong background in programming with extensive reverse engineering experience. Even though my CV doesn’t sport an extensive financial section, I believe I have a rather good understanding of the Forex market, acquired since 2003 when I first started to gain significant interest in it. Forex caught my eye as early as 2001, but the only related activity I performed was sporadic demo trading until 2003. I’m not one of those self-proclaimed experienced traders, quite the contrary; however, I do have some trading experience (read: “I burned my fair share of money”). I completely stopped trading both manual and by EA in 2009, the chief reason being that it was exerting too great a psychological stress and I decided it’s just not for me. I have been working as a game programmer for over 10 years; starting with 2012 I am responsible with the automated trading aspect of tradable.
The abundance of commercial EAs was drawing my attention, so I started to check out this and that EA, do some backtesting, read deeper into what the authors are saying and so on, only to find out that the large majority are scams or copies. I figured that I’m probably a lot more qualified to do this than the average EA buyer, so I started this blog as a means to point a finger at shady EAs. I later decided to turn it into a means of pointing the finger at solid EAs, which is a much easier task, since there are so few of them. Hopefully, you will be able to find an EA you like and you will share your experiences with it in the blog comments.
While this started as a fully independent review site, after a while it became apparent that it just didn’t work that way, since it was eating too much of my time and I always chose to work on a paid project instead of writing a review. See the Times change… post for further information.
Although not all the EAs that are being reviewed here have been purchased by me personally, if you’re looking for cracked EAs or pirated trading methods, you need to start looking elsewhere – you will not find any EA or download link for any copyrighted material here.
In addition, if you see the review of an EA that you might want to run on your live account, my advice is: buy it. Do not use a pirated copy; by buying it, not only do you support the developer, but you also receive updates (in most cases) and have the certainty that the trading it’s going to do is genuine. Plus, if it performed well in my tests, chances are it’s gonna pay for itself.
Keep in mind that I’m open to critique. If you think I did something wrong or just didn’t perform a test that I should have, simply post a comment and let me know. I’ll be sure to update where necessary. Also, if you’re wondering why I did a particular test, ask. If you purchased one of the EAs reviewed, feel free to share your experience with it in the comments, even if it didn’t go as well as you hoped it would; I don’t intend this to be an advertising site, I’d rather like it to be an informative resource as it has been from the start. I won’t censor any comments as long as they’re respectful, on the topic and there’s no more foul language than I’d use myself.
If you’d like me to write a review about your EA, feel free to contact me about it, but keep in mind that I might choose not to write a review if your EA isn’t a very good performer.
Did you notice an EA that stands out from the rest and you’d like to read a review about it? Contact me and we’ll see if it’s worth writing about.
