Conduct testing in conditions as close to real. Use demo accounts for tests. Test at least 2-4 business weeks. For quality and reliable testing, use VPS servers whenever possible.
The program settings allow you to run several copies of the adviser in one terminal, use this feature. Testing the adviser in the strategy tester will not give you guarantees and reliable good results. Do not leave the advisor on 24/7, always monitor the work of the adviser and, if necessary, adjust the setting.

The site indicates that there is a free version available but the limitations or features of the demo version are not stated.
There are a massive 163 reviews at the time of writing which have given the expert advisor an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5.
“Honestly, this is the best EA I have been seeing in the market so far. It’s very stable and profitable. I have been using this expert adviser for three months now, and it generates steady and concise profits. I highly recommend it to everyone. I thank the developer for a great job, well done.” – A 5-star review.
”I’ve blown my account today (on EURUSD drop) after three weeks trading on Live. However, I leave a 4-star rating cause I think the EA just did what it’s been told. Although I have tested the EA on several demos with several settings, I think that I needed to learn more about the EA’s setting and parameter. I would recommend people get a lot of confidence of how this EA works before hitting the road. I will continue my learning on a demo account and maybe I will come back to the EA again.” – A 4-star review.
“I want to love this EA, but it has blown half of my account twice now. It will randomly take a trade that’s 60 times bigger lot size than others, and then I wake up to half my account gone. I used the developers set files for each pair. Very dangerous EA. Not recommended by me. I brought this to the developer’s attention and his response was just “Very strange! I also use these settings! But I have everything ok! Orders like yours closed with profit!” That response does not help resolve bad coding.” – a 1-star review.
So there is a mix of reviews, this is expected when using a grid-based expert advisor as they can easily blow accounts, there are also over 3,000 comments, the creator has responded to some of them but there are too many to reply to them all, we hope that the customer service once it has been purchased would get more responses. Due to its price, we would recommend contacting the seller to ask for a more comprehensive demo version so you can test it out to ensure that it meets your needs before making a purchase.
