If you had your nerves made of titanium enforced steel... Yes, manual trading could be better than EAs as the subconscious might 'notice' some subtle signs of impending changes which a 'robot' cannot sense. Of course, after spending the mandatory 10,000 hours screen time to 'teach' the subconscious... (Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller: ''The Outliers'')
But the real question is: Who has those titanium nerves when 4-5 digit profits and losses are flickering on the screen...?
(Hint: It is not the same with demo, cent accounts and not even with 2-3 digits flickerings on a real account... If you ever get there you shall know and remember...)
