We do believe that automated trading is performing better for most traders and it saves a lot of time. However, we have heard too many “Holy Grail” stories and there is no such thing. Trading with EAs is risky too and requires monitoring your account from time to time. By partnering with us we try to make the experience transparent and to set realistic goals.

We offer the featured EA’s at a 40% discount in case you want to trade it on a new account with one of our preferred brokers.
