Hi All, I would like to know your suggestion and opinion about 2 topics

(1) 'computer trading(algorithm)' fighting with 'human trading(manual)', Do you know which one will be the winner in the next 20 years ?

(2) 'Hedge fund' and 'Investment banking' use 'human trading' or 'computer trading' ? and why they do that ?

Thanks in advance

I, as an informatic engineer, strongly believe that algo trading is utmost succesful in the long term.Surely Human brain is far more flexible than a program, incredibly fast in information processing but dominated by feelings, stress, and more important... fatigue.
By now the most powerful firms invest in server farm and HFT, rather than skillful traders, makes sense...

Good point. There is definitely an argument for automation in terms of controlling emotions and fatigue, and for doing the spontaneous number crunching associated with money management. The problem with 100% automation is that it just keeps 'automating' regardless of current market dynamics, and that can produce dangerous results. Today's aircraft can take-off, cruise to destination, and land safely all on auto-pilot, but if something goes wrong it is nice to know that there is a human up front to take control. Of course, not much point if the person up front does not know how to fly!

Autotrading is something that every investor / trader wants to utilize to maximize their benefits. There are many traders developing their own EA systems for autotrading, some are successful some not.

But it has never achieved results on a consistent basis. If you scan through automated trading systems on this portal, you will see huge results and would also come across huge losses as well.

As @myfxpt suggested, it good to have a auto pilot mode, but when things go wrong there should be an intelligent trader to take control of the situation.


Be among the very successful Forex Account Managers.

Successful robust Algos with sustainable long-term profitability are created by people with absolute 100% commitment and dedication to a hard work and continuous improvements only.
NOTE: it’s always a team-work, one “brainer” alone will never succeed in this field.
Sufficient funding usually expedite the results substantially. Investor' patience is a plus.

Oh, wow. I stuck between 'algorithm trading' and 'human trading' more than 1.5 years.

After reading your suggestion, I understand my weakness and I understand myself better now. Your suggestion are very helpful to me.

Really appreciate your suggestion 😄

I am hoping there will still be a place for the human trader....Working on system development just in case there is not.

I think hybrid trading is the future of trading. I think trading along side of an EA gives you the best of both worlds.

You win some, you lose some.

Human traders work will offen have more profit wirh a lower count of trades.
But human traders needs an excellent knowhow.

A machine trader with an intelligent algorithmus works 5/24 and never needs a holiday session ;-)

My machine algo works fine with 64 currency pairs at the same time, and have an autooptimizing process includet.
Up to 500 trades at the same time, and up to 1500 trades a day.
Sometimes i think, its a commission machine ;-)

You can see at the account with JFD as extension in my test book.
All the accounts use the same algo-trader.
