Glad I found this page. I have also had an aweful encounter with WWW.TRADINGAUTOMATICS.COM I emailed him my strategy after agreeing the cost. He did send me an EA but on reviewing the trades it appeared to not be trading the strategy I requested. It had various title and edits on it labelling another strategy I am aware of...... On asking Vladimir Ignatov to fix no end of errors and problems. He never got back to me. Only replying a month later (after a threatening email) with an updated version claiming his last email to me must have gone into my spam folder (something i check through meticulously). The new strategy again failed to do what I had asked, I didnt bother persue him any further as he is clearly a fraud / waste of space / ripoff and cant code. Simple as that.
Oh well I think I scared him off by asking him to send me the results! Never mind, I just saved myself £130. I've used another guy instead who charged me £40 and got it sorted in a day. Just a couple of little bits to iron out but SO much better! I think the moral of this thread is 'maybe not a wise idea to use trading automatics' !!! If he ever does get back to me I will be telling him his services are not required...
I recieved the back tests. Well, i say i recieved the back tests but they weren't actually the backtests or the screen shot that i'd requested. They don't appear to match up with my manual calculations at all, so i've asked for some more examples. (Preferably the one's i originally asked for) It's funny though, because the results that they've sent me are actually really profitable. I got really excited at first, before i checked if they matched up with my strategy...
Maybe i should forget the strategy that i aksed them to develop into an EA for me and go with the one they've created anyway? Na, don't think so...
I wait with baited breath for the next results....if i get them ...
I came accross this post after giving trading automatics my strategy. They say it's ready and have sent me the bill, but after reading this, i'm feeling very nervous about it! I've asked them to send me a screen shot of some back tests that i have the figures for (worked them out manually) and a screen shot of todays chart. Not going to send this guy any cash until i've taken a look! I'll keep you posted with the results.
jprize posted: I don't know what others have experienced, but I hired these guys to do some coding. The first draft was missing some of the features I wanted. They added those features for me, and asked me to let them know if it performs as expected. I have not had the opportunity yet to forward test it, but these guys seem very competent and professional from all that I've seen so far.
I must update my prior comments. The EA these guys coded for me (after being paid in advance) did not even come close to what I asked for. They, at first seemed quite willing to make the changes that were necessary. The second and third revisions were still completely useless to me, because they simply did not enter the orders that were specified. I sent them numerous screenshots that clearly showed that the EA was not behaving according to the rules that I specified...not even close. Their solution now is to do nothing and to stop responding to emails.
If you are considering sending money to these people, I suggest that you save time and just put it directly down the toilet.

Seriously ripped off so far. Gave this guy my code and never heard from him. He was low priced and that should have tipped me off. Address is a store front in London with no listing for Trading Automatics. Appears to be a fraud. Bujao, contact me and get an update on this guy's whereabouts. He's in Chicago, or so evidence has it. I think there's a way to get your money back.
Do not use this idiot. Vladimir Ignatov didn't deliver what I had asked. Not only was the EA not delivered on the agreed time. What was worse was that he just sent me a random EA that didn't have any trading logic close at all to what I ordered. As soon as I started questioning this, he stopped responding to emails. Paypal couldn't refund me since digital services is not included in their policies, so basically Vladimir stole my money and didn't do what he was paid for. He is a real jerk.
I seriously want to punch his cowardly face in. I have also read on other forums about other people that has experienced the same when hiring him.
