Live accounts performance Q4, 2018

In September/October 2018 we launched forward tests on live accounts with real money using the best forex robots that we found from 3500+ EAs on MQL5.com marketplace. As well in October we started to use our own robots and here are the results.

Robot I

Maximum Drawdown 7.27% versus 23.13% of income. This bot still has set files to be optimized to improve performance.

 

Robot II

Maximum Drawdown 2.68% versus 15.33% of income. This bot already works after set files have been widely optimized, for now we will keep increasing trading volume for more gains.

 

Robot III

Maximum Drawdown 11.57% versus 0.16% of income. This bot still has set files to be optimized to improve performance. Furthermore couple days ago set files with the worst performance were removed from live trading.

 

Robot IV

Maximum Drawdown 3.08% versus 33.33% of income. This bot still has a huge potential for optimization and we keep working on it, meanwhile trading volumes a couple days ago have been significantly multiplied.

 

Robot V

Maximum Drawdown 0.89% versus 3.48% of income. Good Risk to Reward ratio, it’s time to increase volumes and keep adding new set files after wide optimization which finished a few days ago.

 

Robot VI

Maximum Drawdown 17.35% versus 0.17% of income. Same situation as with bot 03: it still has set files to be optimized to improve performance. Also set files with the worst performance were removed from live trading.

 

Robot VII

Maximum Drawdown 6.99% versus 25.32% of income. This bot still has set files to be optimized to improve performance. Meanwhile a few days ago we added new 20+ optimized set files and increased trading volumes.

 

Summary

Unfortunately, 3500+ robots from MQL5.com are only huge number of products, but not 3500+ sources of stable income.

Fortunately, there still are some systems that work with profits on live accounts, and it is only question of correct backtests, evaluation, optimization, control and improvement.
