I will have to concede to your point that once the human element is added to anything, there is confusion. Machines are more capable of consistent results and as you can see from these wave forms, they are very consistent. https://www.myfxbook.com/members/ForexAssistant/rise-audcad/578913https://www.myfxbook.com/members/ForexAssistant/passive-income-generator/685841
I could never do that. That is the point of my research, get a machine to do it. I make algorithms for the computer to take advantage of its strengths. I certainly do not want to sit and watch some dumb trades all my life. I got better things to do. I want a consistent returns on my investment like I get from my real estate. If I couldn't do that, I wouldn't be doing this. A live account can't show how a machine works any better than a demo but I can see your point about the human error aspect.
I guess the difference for some maybe that they think that everyone is trying to sell them something, but no one on this forum is really what I consider my market. I teach working class heroes how to retire and let a machine take over the working for a living and bringing in the paycheck. What good are all these advances in technology if we humans are still slaves to the daily grind?
My whole goal is to take trading out of the hands of humans and put it under the control of the machine. Systemic trading is for machines, no human could do what they do. But that is the point, I have eliminated the human element. Now, a trained investor can do what I did, and there are 7 billion potential students wanting what I have already got, that is “A way to make a living without having to work for it”.
But these debate about real vs demo is just BS. I posted a real account on the forum and was accused of falsifying the monthly reports. It's not about whether the account is real or not, it is all just another way tear down someone else. This whole debate on a difference in demo and live is just stupid. In fact, I think I will just drop out of it.
Here is that live account again from 2008, I don't care who sees this one as it is closed. https://www.forex-assistant.com/2008-2009.zip
