EA Vega: To Trust or Not to Trust?
The robot is too young to tell something for sure about its future performance and if it meets our expectations.
We know enough about strategy and settings:
- The system is based on the break-out strategy.
- It runs an “Ichimoku Kinko Hyo indicator for spotting a future price momentum and determines areas between support and resistance levels.”
- The expert advisor “opens and closes trades based on the candlestick bar ranges and top and bottom prices.”
- It can work automatically for us.
- The system is designed to work with all pairs from the terminal.
- The most-traded break-out pairs are EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY.
- It can work on the M30 time frame.
- The robot covers deals by settings hard Stop Losses.
- The risk shouldn’t be higher than 5% to the account balance.
- The system was backtested with insane risk (25%) and insane drawdowns (80%).
- The robot can work with fixed Lot Sizes which we set.
- The vendor provides settings files for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY.
- The robot doesn’t run risky strategies.
- We can use the system on the FIFO-regulated brokers.
- There’s a magic number to inform us where our deals are.
- The maximum Lot Size can’t be set higher than 100.
- The system has a low-trading frequency.
- If we’d like to wait, there’ll be an MT5 version of the expert advisor.
The robot was download free. Now, it costs $50 for a copy and $30 for a one-month rent. We can download it for free to check the system parameters.
