Greetings everyone, and especially fellow Forex traders. You know, I really love Forex trading robots (aka Expert Advisors). There are numerous benefits that automated trading systems have to offer, but I think the number one benefit for me is that they take the frail human emotions out of the trading equation. There are of course other more obvious benefits but I shan’t get into that in this posting. I’m constantly on the lookout for profitable mechanical trading systems, and while working on something for this blog one of my google AdSense banners featured this tantalizing advertisement which for some reason sparked some impulse in me to scroll a bit more downwards to see the whole thing. Immediately after I read the “trade robots” my curiosity peaked. I immediately opened a new Firefox tab and typed in the URL at the bottom of the banner and investigated further. As you can see from the picture above, the name of the site is Forex AutoPilot.
The Forex AutoPilot System promo page has a very “marketing” feel to it, and I got the impression that it’s kind of hyped up in a sense. But, curiosity got the best of me and scrolled down even more. I came across the video testimonials which I found mildly amusing. The funniest one is where this “overhead stocker” guy says that “while you’re at home…these auto trading robots make moves on the STOCK markets for you.” Could such a monumental show of ignorance be proof that the video testimonial is genuine? Hmm, I wonder. Well, anyways, let’s move on. So I scroll down even more, going through each video testimonial and reading the marketing spiel, then I get to the bottom where the all important price is finally revealed.
Apparently the complete Forex Auto Pilot expert advisor package retails for $399.50, BUT they are giving 75% discounts which expire 3 days past Feb 14,2008. The funny thing is that today is the 17’th and I was still able to get the 75% off discount – so much for “hurry act now cause this offer expires blah blah blah.” So with the 75% discount my final price was around $99. I guess it’s not that much to pay to satisfy my curiosity. Maybe this one will prove to be a winner, then I can stop hunting through the forexfactory and forex-tsd forums for profitable expert advisors (EAs).
The package includes 8 Expert Advisors in total and two bonus items: a NFP (Non-Farm Payroll) trading robot & “Ultra Trend” indicator
Well folks, as of today I am officially starting the demo testing period. I will report my findings here on this blog as well as on my forex blog. Those of you who wish to join me in testing this “AutoPilot System” and can still get the package for $99 may wish to do so, or you can always wait for me to complete demo testing. In either case I am quite curious to see how these trade robots perform.
To those of you who end up purchasing these commercial expert advisors, I would really appreciate it if you were to leave a comment or two letting me know how your testing is going or if you found some settings that are really profitable 🙂 – you can even e-mail me if you’d like (click the “about” link at the top).
Cheers, and many pips to you!
