Human intellect is better than a EA, but it is hard to take into trading only the intellect.
Feelings will affect your manual trading.
I believe in automated trading. No feelings and you can back test it + improve it step by step.

I totally agree.

You can't backtest your mind

On the contrary! You actually can. Just take a look on your trading results using a non mechanical approach. Take all of your broker's statements, concerning all the time you have been trading...

Anyway, since the topic is 'Robotic' vs Manual Trading, here's my 50c opinion:

For a LONG TERM profitable trading the only thing that it really matters is Capital (Risk and Money) Management. Yes, of course and I acknowledge the importance of a positive expectancy trading method / strategy. However, it is more well known in the trading community than the alphabet, that having even the best system in the world if you implement it with a poor capital management it will eventually blow your account to...Hell.

In algorithmic trading (the so called 'Robotic'), there's not any human feelings involved, at least in pulling the trigger.

Looking at the results is not backtesting
