There are dozens of trade advisors in the public domain, but 99% of them do not bring profit. Trading systems have a period of life, after which they become unprofitable. If at the beginning a new trade adviser could still generate income, then as soon as everything began to be used by him, he would lose his effectiveness. Some brokers (AMarkets) offer free software, but their effectiveness depends on professional tuning. Some brokers offer robots for a fee (FreshForex), but do you agree to pay 100-400 dollars? USA for the “cat in the bag”?

  • Tip: develop your own trading system based on technical indicators, test it on a demo account, make its assessment. Does the system work? Order the advisor’s spelling on it!

Requirements for the formulation of TK:
