I am not a believer in retail automated fx trading systems, in fact I dear say that most of them are scams.
We need to understand the larger motive of most of these forex marketers.
Their motive in my opinion, is not for the client to make consistent returns over long periods of time, but rather to wow unsuspecting investors into purchasing a system that seemed to have done well in the past. They are interested in selling as many EA's as possible, that is there main source of income.
On the other hand private written software that is designed for the account holder and account manager to make money will have a different motive. I am a manual but also an automated system designer/user.
I believe that will the necessary tools, skills and time almost any manual strategy can be automated.
But.... just as how any manual strategy can stop working over time as the market changes the same way an automated strategy can fail over time if the market changes.
Therefore it is the job of the system designer to update upgrade the system as the market modes change.
If any system manual or automated is designed for trend following and the market is in range both will get hurt.
If any system manual or automated is designed for counter trend and the market is trending strongly, both will get hurt.
So the point is that one cannot expect to just buy a system out of a box then press play and make consistent profit for the rest of their lives, if that were the case the world would be filled with forex billionaires, in fact there would not be enough money in this world to pay us.
Think about it, if FApTurbo performed as its back-test showed..... for the next 10 years on an account starting with 100,000, would have more than 200 billion dollars profit in their account. Let us say that 100 people did the same thing, worst yet the over 50,000 persons that bought the software.
Anyway I have designed many successful strategies, some that I have been able to automate or at least semi-automate that are making money almost every month for myself and my clients, some making from 5% to 25% to even over 300%, depends on risk appetite of the client/strategy/deposit and also the ability of the strategy to take advantage of the current market mode.
