If you can make use of them in combination, nothing can stop you becoming a successful trader. Make use of your trading bot to eliminate emotions and your market instinct to avoid trading when not needed.

Machines can be helpful to execute mundane works with speed and accuracy. They are good at executing the given command perfectly no matter what. They don’t have a conscience, which makes it impossible for machines to decide the right thing to do in exceptional situations. That’s why we need a human to take control of these machines and programs. I agree with the fact that human emotions can be an obstacle to making rational decisions while trading. But without these emotions we won’t even have the motivation to take up a trade. For trading bots, they just know they have to take up a trade because they are programmed to do so. But they can never replace the power of an actual human brain. Artificial intelligence is there to assist us so that we can concentrate on doing more important tasks. They are not meant to take our position and do the important tasks on our behalf. So I would say it won’t hurt to use bots and machines once in a while but make sure the decisions are made by you using all of your senses.

In the modern forex trading world, I believe you would need a trading bot that will help you keep up with the market competition. The market is moving quite fast and you may not always be able to take advantage of them while trading manually. But with a bot, you can trade quickly as per your set conditions.

Imo, machines can be really helpful in making profits but one should also understand that they also have limitations and can’t be 100% perfect.

Because a human mind can produce machines, but no machine can make a human mind, the mind is always superior to the machine. A trader should always use his or her own intellect to trade rather than machines or automated bots because the human mind is the best analyzer and robots are merely there to help humans.

There's no substitute for the human mind. No machine can produce a genius mind, but all outstanding machines are the result of genius minds. However, although machines are beneficial, they will never be able to fully replace a human mind.

When it comes to trading, minds are better than machines. Because of the high volatility, the value of the currency pair can change at any time, and at such times, the human mind can analyse the problem and make a better decision whereas machines will have hard time adapting to the ever changing price movement and you will need to constantly tune the strategy to make it work every time you are trading with market.

A proper blend of the usage of mind and machine can generate huge profits. However, fully relying on machines is not a smart idea as the forex market is unpredictable and highly volatile.

It’s all about what you believe in. If you believe that a robot will be able to give you better results, you will accept all that it gets you. And if you believe that manual trading is better, you will do everything that it takes to make profitable trades.

I don’t see an end to this discussion because there will always be several debates in favour and opposition of both of these.
The best way a trader can make a decision for himself is by starting as a manual trader and using a robot after gaining some experience. When you will have results to compare, you will be able to make a better trading decision.

I would say both are better. If both used with full productivity will bring benefits to you only. But I would say no doubt world is heading towards tech side but all those things are made by mind itself.

I think both are equally important without mind you can’t use the machine properly and without a machine you remind can’t work efficiently. Both should be used wisely.

It leaves necessity for strategy-based trading. Traders should go ahead in a disciplined way and step by step improvement is needed. A trader should transform every mistake into a lesson.

EAs can be really profitable if the trader knows how to use them efficiently.

Nothing can stop you from being a successful trader if you can use them in combination.  Use your trading bot to balance your emotions and your market instinct to avoid  trading when it is not necessary.

Trading is an art, not a science. Trading manually can be very rewarding if you have the time, money, and dedication to make it work and can help you achieve success in the long term.

Why not both ? Machine can identify the trade while people can confirm the trade.

I am a price action trader. I use to miss my trade entry a lot of times because i could not stay with my charts. Some time I switch to a different chart or stay busy doing something and the trade entry pass away. Chasing the market is not my style. So i had no choice but to wait for the next setup, which takes a lot of time.
Then i converted my price action strategy to a Realtime scanner. Now at the right time i get entry alerts. Then i simply look at the chart for the final time and decide if i want to take the trade or not.
Only people who trade with swing structure breakout using two timeframe, will understand the pain of waiting for the breakout to happen and then again waiting for the test to happen before entering the trade.
The name of the tool i use is multipair analyzer. You can google it to know more.

Use both and double your chances of making money. To make money in the ever moving market, you need the speed of a robot along with your intelligence.
