Volatility Factor 2.0 Review

Volatility Factor 2.0

We’d like to talk about another FXAutomater’s product today – Volatility Factor 2.0

Volatility Factor presentation

A robot has a 2.0 version and is advertised as “the most powerful EA on the Forex market.”

The robot has indicators that allow trading big market movements. Money-management tracks open deals to close them using a Trailing Stop Loss feature. Spread and slippage protections were designed to keep the deals in the best shapes.

Volatility Factor presentation

The devs systemized everything that will make our trading experience smooth and sound. There’s a simple installation, user guide, and other manuals, getting access to the members’ area, welcome and knowledgeable 24/7 support, one live and unlimited demo account package, and a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Volatility Factor 2.0: To Trust or Not to Trust?

The robot opens trades on the following symbols: GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, and USD/CHF. The system has received approval from NFA and FIFO. So, it’s allowed to be used in the US. This increases our trust a bit, but before we get sure that the EA is good to go, we have to check its trading results.

Features

Volatility Factor 2.0 Features

All features appear several times during a presentation, but this picture is the best way to mention all of them:

  • A Broker Spy Module can cover us from unique activities from the broker side.
  • The EA supports only four currency pairs: GBP/USD, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, and USD/CHF.
  • The system was sewn two independent from each other trading strategies.

Good 3rd-party verified Trading Results

Volatility Factor Trading Results

It’s a GBP/USD backtest on the M15 timeframe. A test was run for seven years. The modeling quality was 90%. An initial deposit of $2000 became $1,69M of the total net profit. The Profit Factor was 1.70. A maximum drawdown was little and amounted to (15.10%). The robot closed 9131 trades with a 78% win-rate. The average consecutive wins were 6; losses were 2.

The presentation is featured by widgets with “The Latest Optimized Settings,” but according to the chart, these settings brought a huge loss.

Volatility Factor works on a demo account through an Alpari RU broker with 1:500 leverage on the Meta Trader 4 platform. An account was created on March 26, 2020. For seven months, the total gain became +42.89%. A monthly gain is 5.41%, with 20.20% of the maximum drawdown. 

Volatility Factor 2.0 trading results

Last month’s trading results were horrible. Volatility Factor closed 622 deals with 1442 pips. An average win (10 pips) is almost twice less than an average loss (-17.77 pips). A win-rate for Longs and Shorts varies too. Longs’ one is 76%, Shorts’ is 65%. An average trade length is over three hours. The EA trades with a mediocre Profit Factor (1.30).

The Shorts’ direction was a loss bringer. It’s weird because usually, Short Trades are more profitable.

As we can see from the chart, a scalping pattern trades during an Asian market, the second one works for the rest of the day.

The weekly trading results look common.

The account is run with medium risks.

The last trades were unsuccessful. From the number of lost pips, we can be sure that something is broken in the money-management system. You can’t be profitable when the average trade brings +7 pips, and some of the losses -100 ones.

It’s how the trading results looked at the beginning. 

Volatility Factor 2.0 monthly gain

The annual chart shows that we can’t expect from the EA to be predictable. 

High Drawdown

It’s another one. We provide it to show that for the last three years since May 2020, the EA lost money.
