Is anyone here using an EA to carry out their trades?
If so, do you use your own EA?
I would say people are lazy. Lazy people just buy some EA created by someone else without understanding how it works. As result they lose money twice - when they pay for EA - when they got loses on their account
That's why I never sell EAs. I do mirror trades from my account to theirs and get paid only where there is profit
I guess there is nothing better than manual trading, mainly because such types of trading activity can possibly bring you much more experience and skills rather than auto-trading. Of course, we shouldn't underestimate the work of EAs and it's quite spread across all the market, nevertheless if you haven't got enough experience, you would better stay off the idea of using EAs mainly because the main task for you is to learn how to trade professionally an earn money. The process of searching for EAs is quite long and you will just waste of your time I guess, nevertheless if you want, then you can try.

Of course, you will like manual trading because that's what you know. What if you are the one who made the EA out of the strategy that you're using to trade manually? Would you feel the same way? It's obviously useless to use an EA or a strategy without having any confidence on it.
I currently work on manual trading, I think it's good practice to have understanding of how to trade in order to use an EA. I am starting to work on EA's but it takes time to do the back testing to get the settings right to make any good money. I feel more in control when I trade manually so I think it is how I will trade going forward. Not against having an EA working in the background making a little more money though.
