We do not show any backtest results or make claims about the profitability of the Expert Advisors. We know we do not have any one size fits all systems that will satisfy all the people all the time. Take a look at any of the Expert Advisors and you will see they let you change many variables so showing some optimized backtest does not help you much for the future. For any system to be successful, it must fit your trading style, your psychology, and be within your risk tolerance. Learning, testing, modifying, and getting a feel for the system is crucial to becoming comfortable with a trading system. If you want a headstart on programming and automating a Forex system, we have code for you. If you want to try out a common system and build upon it to make it your system, we have systems for you. All of our Expert Advisors are available for free backtests on the MQL Market.
