“As of today, This EA is working great. The only one in the whole market that I tested through a live account that actually works.”
Edit March 17th: “I got consecutive losses that wiped out all my gain during the last week and a half. I had to stop the trades today as it kept buying EURUSD while it is now still dropping down (150 pips from initial buying position) and doubles up each time EA doesn’t recognize the market.” – A 1-Star review.
“Marco is a really helpful author, quick response, and useful suggestions. He deserves 5 stars. I test the demo for ten years, it got very good performance. I used this EA for three weeks, it got a 3% increase in the first week. 9% increase in three weeks. It is really good.” – A 5-Star review.
“Simply another EA martingale, Fair enough.” – A 2-star review.
So there are some positive and negative reviews, the creator has also been replying to some of the comments but not all of them. As the expert advisor is quite expensive, we would recommend getting in touch with the creator to see if you can get a more detailed demo version that will allow you to test it out prior to making a larger purchase.
