The trading robot uses an advanced algorithm based on the idea of grid trading. Grid trading is a strategy that benefits from the fact that currency rates move in waves and always return to their long-term average. No other strategy is better suited to turn this so-called "mean-reverting effect" into profits as quickly and frequently as possible. An important part of the grid strategy of the robot is the so-called martingale approach, i.e. it increases the positions the further the price moves away from its expected mean. We allow our robot such multiple position increases according to strictly defined rules (lot size, maximum number of open trades, price ranges etc.), resulting in a grid of trades in the same direction. As the market moves in waves, an opposite overlapping price movement can make all trades of the grid end with a profit. Although this increases the likelihood that these positions will end in profit, at the same time, the risk of loss increases. Lot size is adjusted based on the account balance for proper money management and risk-averse market exposure.
Grid strategies work extremely well in phases without strong trends, but also in wave-like up and down movements within a broad trend channel. Such movements are typical in the foreign exchange market, where they occur 80% to 90% of the time. This makes it possible to achieve very high hit rates and far above average returns with grid strategies in the foreign exchange market.
In strong, panic-like trend phases (with fast movements without waves), grid strategies work less well. Therefore, we have developed a sophisticated Trade Filter system that identifies such phases based on volatility and may suspend trading if necessary. In other words, if the conditions are not optimal for us, then our robot "knows" that and will only trade once there are optimal conditions.
The robot includes settings and filters that always ensure the best risk-reward ratio in its portfolio. TradeRobo EA is designed with the following concepts and principles in mind:
The price in the Forex market typically moves in waves illustrated on the charts as up and down repetitive fluctuations resulting in certain volatility that affects the return on an investment. The larger such fluctuations are during a phase in the development of the market, the higher the volatility and the less predictable the return. The Forex market price movement phases have the following normal statistical distribution throughout the year:
TradeRobo is carefully programmed to precisely identify and actively trade during the first type of the above listed market phases taking full advantage of the fluctuations that are large enough for generating good and regular profits but still low enough to avoid excessive risks. The second and third type of phases can be characterised as abnormal market conditions causing bigger drawdowns in the system’s performance. Therefore, TradeRobo tends to avoid them or minimise their impact, limiting the number of open orders thanks to its strict filters. The use of these filters pays off eventually, even if it sometimes requires patience from the investors who should always have in mind that any avoided loss is also a performance gain! Inevitably, the profitable wave market phases come again.
Ignoring the specific nature of the Forex and stock markets explained above, novice investors usually tend to act impatiently during phases of low, flat or even negative gain and even stop using TradeRobo, cancelling their subscription after a few months and sacrificing long-term large profits for short-term flat gains or small losses. In contrast, the serious and well-versed investors accept such market conditions and are patient enough to reach their goals.
Although there is not a fixed time range for opening or closing orders, TradeRobo’s historical performance demonstrates that most of the trading activity is held between 7:00 and 21:00 GMT fully covering the London session.
Although TradeRobo EA can be universally implemented with a 5,000 EUR, USD or GBP minimum account balance, for the optimum performance of the conservative portfolio we recommend a minimum account balance of 10,000 EUR, USD or GBP. For the aggressive portfolio, however, a 5,000 EUR, USD or GBP account balance could suffice. Please note that the larger the trade size, the higher the profit expectations, but also the higher the risk involved. Having a bigger initial investment means that you may be eligible for better trading conditions and special offers by your broker.
With the recommended settings, starting from a 10,000 EUR, USD or GBP as initial investment, we would expect a potential profit of approx. 50% per year. In practical backtests for the period between 2009 and 2018, the trading robot achieved an average annual performance of 43.06% applying the conservative portfolio and 50.94% applying the aggressive portfolio. For a detailed breakdown of the backtest performance results for that analysed period, please refer to the tables below:
Please note that backtest results may vary based on the applied settings of a trading account with a broker and the real market conditions (such as execution speed, slippage etc.). Therefore, such stats could be used only as an indication but never considered as an assurance of actual performance. Nevertheless, the longer the history and the larger the amount of performed trades, the more precise the analysis and forecasts.
This trading robot is the result of years of trading experience and thousands of tests. It is programmed to earn as much money as possible at manageable risk. But the EA only realises its true potential in two recommended portfolios combining these evenly weighted currency pairs:
Conservative portfolio (larger, less volatile):
AUDCAD, AUDJPY, AUDNZD, AUDUSD, CADJPY, EURAUD, EURCAD, EURGBP, EURJPY, EURNZD, EURUSD, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPJPY, GBPNZD, GBPUSD, NZDCAD, NZDJPY, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDJPY
Aggressive portfolio (smaller, more volatile):
AUDCAD, AUDNZD, AUDUSD, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPNZD, GBPUSD, NZDCAD, NZDUSD, USDCAD
Thanks to the simultaneous trading of different currency pairs, a much higher performance can be achieved. Moreover, the risk is mitigated by diversification across those currency pairs without reducing the overall profit. The EA developers constantly monitor and improve the robot to ensure an optimal portfolio composition.
For different account sizes, we adjust the height of the drawdown level by a step of -3500 EUR, USD or GBP. For the conservative portfolio, this adjustment step is set at an interval of every 10,000 EUR, USD or GBP invested in the account, while for the aggressive portfolio this interval is reduced to every 5,000 EUR, USD or GBP invested. For example, if you have a 20,000 EUR account running the conservative portfolio, you should set the drawdown value to -7,000 EUR, for an account with 30,000 EUR capital - to -10,500 EUR and so on.
The drawdown level is our last resort. It is good to know that it is there, even if you normally do not reach it. Thanks to the proactive approach and the numerous capital protection measures applied in the portfolio strategies, the drawdown threshold should never be reached.
Download the TradeRobo Installation Guide for self-installation instructions. Feel free to contact our team at email@example.com if you need any help. For help in installing the EA in a MT4 terminal on a VPS, please contact the Customer Support team of your broker or the VPS hosting provider.
You can install TradeRobo on as many terminals and devices as you wish, but it can only run on 1 device and in 1 terminal at a time. However, you can monitor the EA’s performance on an account on different devices accessing it via the provided investor password in any MT4 terminal (desktop or mobile). We recommend you using a VPS where you can run the EA on a selected account and monitor it on your preferred devices.
TradeRobo in Metatrader 4 must run on a computer that is always on and has a stable Internet connection. This is the only way to ensure that the EA can constantly monitor the market and trade according to the defined strategies. You either have to leave a permanently running computer at home for trading or use a VPS (Virtual Private Server). A VPS is a computer owned by the broker or a hosting provider and permanently connected to the Internet. You can install and run the MetaTrader terminal through an exclusive access to the VPS as if it were on your own PC at home. This is a very useful tool, but it may come with an extra cost!
Such an option is not available. We believe that you should have full flexibility and control over the costs and period of using TradeRobo Expert Advisor. Therefore, we avoid the “set and forget” mentality and commit to the ongoing support and enhancement of the service, allowing you to use it at smaller and much more affordable payment instalments with the possibility to cancel at any time.
Moreover, we are looking for a long-term win-win relationship with you as a client, meaning that we are committed to your profitability. Our logic is simple – if you are satisfied with our services, you will remain our client and we will generate revenue from your subscription fee. Applying such a model motivates us to constantly perform at our best to keep you as a loyal client. In contrast, one-off payments in comparison would guarantee us a profit no matter how long you are going to stay with us. They are more applicable to single products rather than to TradeRobo’s continuous service.
When you consider purchasing trading robots offering only a lifetime licence for a single payment, please have in mind that it is much easier and convenient for an EA developer to risk others’ money while earning from a one-off payment from clients for a product that promises quite attractive results.
There is absolutely no catch, no hidden or tricky refund conditions that require initial financial commitment on your side to use the free trial period. Indeed, thanks to it, you actually save money during the first year of your subscription. Allowing you to make an informed purchase decision is a priority for us, so take your time and join the growing community of TradeRobo investors risk-free.
TradeRobo’s strategy is built upon statistical observations and years of experience. It is always asking the same question: "How can I automatically achieve a regular profit with a reasonable risk?" The team behind TradeRobo is committed to protect your hard-earned capital and that is why it has optimised, tested and run the system with a relatively lower leverage of 1:100 or up to 1:200 (in the speculative version). At the expense of promising such high profits with a close-to-gambling approach, we strive to minimise the risk of losing money and ruining your trading account balance. We believe that smaller but regular profits are much better than big and inconsistent changes in your equity that put your capital at higher risk. You can always check the Risk of Ruin metrics for a strategy to get an overview of the risk associated with it.
TradeRobo EA automatically adapts the strategy according to your balance and the market fluctuations at the moment you started trading with the system and onwards. It is normal to see variations between accounts as every single case is different and addressed by the robot specifically. Orders may be placed at a slightly different frequency and on different instruments but following the overall logic explained on this page and in the EA’s detailed documentation. However, you can rest assured that the same strict risk management and performance optimisation rules apply to every account, including yours. The trading conditions offered by different brokers also may affect the performance of the robot on your account.
