When you sign up with a broker, your money is gone the instant you send it in. What I mean is, if you try to take it out you have to supply them with your entire identity with card numbers, photos, addresses, etc. And, to make things worse, if you accept their “bonus” money that gets added to your account, you have to reach a certain trading volume before you can withdraw anything. So, if you deposited $500 and you get a $120 bonus, this comes to (500+120) x 20 = $12,400 before you can withdraw even one penny. With the results below, that will never happen.

Hey, I use this robot 7 weeks. The main thing which I like it's trading activity. I used several robots before and with some of them I wait few days to see at least one trade but with fapturbo I got 2-8 trades per day. Almost all of them profitable. I don't like that profits are too small but they close fast. At the beginning I got loss trade after one week and have sent them a message. After two days I finally got response but their answer was helpful. Also I got bonus their robot with ichimoku filter. Now I use it also. In general I can say that robot good and profitable but you always should be in contact with their support because they can recommend to change settings. I like their member area it's quite not modern but there a lot of useful things like videos, pdf and other. Hope they will improve their software to make updates with settings automatically and it will be not necessary to ask them about settings every month.

Monitoring is still required – While it might seem ideal to just get on with your day and let the program do all your Forex trading it is not a very realistic idea.

Failure to pick up such anomalies may result in duplicate or missing orders, or orders that are completely wrong.
One of my friends has developed an EA which is able to plot support/resistance lines on the charts. It doesn’t take any positions at all. So it is not an auto-trading robot. It just plots the lines. He wants to share it on LuckScout for free. It is a while that I am checking it to see if it is good enough to be shared on the site, and I have come to this conclusion that it can help novice traders learn technical analysis much easier and better. So I have decided to share it on the site. This is also the example of a good “white hat” robot. So in general I agree with you that some robots can help.
