My first experience with Robot Trading: Up $5 000 in Two Weeks


This article was posted on Saturday, 16:55, UTC.

Since I’m pressed on time with multiple obligations (job, familiy,, CCN, MoneyMakers) I decided for a couple of weeks ago to look into robot trading. I wanted to find one or multiple robots to do the trading for me. I ended up with downloading MetaTrader 5 and buying two different robots from their marketplace. I started with 16 000 USD on the trading account, and after two weeks the robots have made me $5 000.

That’s a whopping 31% increase within 2 weeks…!

My robots usually trade during the night, and I’ve decided to completely trust them. The 16 000 USD is a sum I’m more than happy to lose if I can learn anything from dealing with trading robots.

When that is said, MetaTrader’s interface really “SUCKS”. It’s so bad, I can’t understand why MetaTrader is considered the best trading terminal for robots. Maybe that’s a good business idea for someone out there? Disrupt MetaTrader.

So, which robots do I use?

I do not want to disclose that just yet, I need to test my robots rigorously before I can recommend any of them. And if this is a money making machine, we can laugh all the way to the bank.

Have a good weekend.

    Please provide more information. The BTC Robot that I am using is not so good. This stupid thing hardly breaks even 🙁 I wish you will provide some good lead on this subject for your loyal readers here 🙂

    I decided to develop my own bot, so I can put my programming skills to work, and to avoid to spend my life observing charts. I am doing a course for algo trading (a post. grad. certificate in Financial Engineering). I have already learnt many mistakes that I was doing, backtesting helps a lot in finding the right strategy. I have some code to do machine learning for classification and it seems the most performant solution. Usually, algo trading software outperforms traders, so you had a good idea to trade a bot. Everybody beware, most of the commercial bots are rubbish, and even bot’s stats are usually counterfeit.

      Agree. And, you propose to sell your own designed bot? Price? Thanks!

        I am developing it for myself, but if it will work, I will think about. I won’t sell the software, but a user could setup the API keys and the software could buy/sell.

    Guys, nothing comes without work on your own. Robots good to test but could be caused by several positive market conditions that worked for Jonas. With money to loose we can gamble… I do it too;) But if you wanna gamble, you can also try 48% increase in 3 months project here: I tested that and earned more then Jonas with robot. Again, with money to loose, not for living. Have a great day.
