Manual every time, as long as you can actually trade.

Unless you're using something exotic like a Martingale or opening multiple positions - but then systems like that have their risks and if you really wanted to you could use systems like this manually I guess.

Only reason I trade with EA's is because they suit my personality better than manual trading.

If you can trade manually, have the time for it and are making money stick at it I'd say.

In fact looking at your account, if you want to trade MY money as well then let me know 😄

11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

More than 5% of the NYSE's volume is traded by one company, fully auto.

https://www.tradebot.com/

That same guys also owns the third largest stock exchange in the world. Or a significant portion of it anyway.

https://batstrading.com/

They did all of that with automated trading systems. And are probably the leaders if not pioneers of high frequency trading. In other words these are the guys that mugg you when you try do a manual trade or even a slow black box trade on NYSE or one of the others.

I guess manual investing still works, but manual trading there are guys mugging you in 1/1000th of a second, where they see your transaction, buy what you were going to buy and sell it back to you at a higher price 1/1000th of a second later and you don't even know it happened.
 
Manual trading doesn't really stand much of a chance now days. That's what your up against. Super slick super fast black boxes with billion's behind them.

Recently I read a report where they were analyzing a strategy and determined for that strategy it was the most profitable if they traded every 1 second. Imagine, 1000 or 3000 stocks traded every 1 seconds!!

The debate is no longer what's best, but how to get into the automated side....

They should really stop HFT. Basically it means the game is rigged for a few privileged players. I'd rather go trade in China now days than NYSE....

But to answer the question. What is most profitable? Looking and Goldman Sachs and player like these I think the answer is very obvious.

Think these operators are not into fx? Goldman? If I remember correctly one of their fx portfolio's did 22 000% for a single year.

I just have the information to prove the stock side after it became a news event because of the flash crash. I assure you they're doing the same to fx. Just have to wait till they flash crash a currency.....then the names will pop up and it be the same people.

The dollar is probably where it is because a black box is keeping it there. It should have the same value as toilet paper. Fed's been printing money for months and the more you have of something the less valuable it should be.

If you ask me we're heading for a black box induced crack up boom. People who ran the systems made billions and will continue to do so as economies fail. No manual trader can cope with the scope and volume of what's happening automated. Fx or otherwise. Just not quick enough I'm afraid.

What were doing with MT4 is a joke. A company like Tradebot can run through their entire portfolio, 10 000 stocks or more, do several transactions per stock on the NYSE, quicker than I can put down a single trade.

Even though I do write EAs from time to time just to keep myself amused, manual trading has proved to be more profitable. I could do a bit semi-auto trading just to help me to get a good entry or exit if I'm away from internet. But yes, same as Steve, manual any day.

Cheers.
