There was a thread he started detailing the performance of the EA which was regularly updated for some weeks but for some reason I can find no trace of it.

So the entire thread and all reference to it has gone, smells like lawyers at work.

Essentially the EA lost control of a gold trade that quickly consumed about 40% of the entire account balance before it was shut down.

Quite frankly i'm less than impressed with the company in general, can the program make money? yes. Much? For the huge sum of money you outlay, i highly doubt it from what we're seeing. Problems with T/P limits, Vortex lags that are like watching paint dry, login issues, pairs outright just not available when they should be, and the program turning off somehow, not by us, but they say not by them either...?? So who/how then?

Then there's the communication..... if your like me you ask in writing, so when you get the answer you can go back to it from your records at a later date, please dont ever expect a response, oh they'll call you, but then can deny telling you what they have at a later date.

Oh, read your contract, ask look into the ACT they quote, they lie straight to you about cooling off periods :/

FBM did get shitty, so the thread was hidden, however we will request it be reopened now that we know we haven't liable for anything... lol

p.s. on a side note, gold turned again and a small profit was made.

Interesting and yes did see gold returned but due to the lack of any stop loss the account was being driven into serious trouble by the algo, there should have been some escape mechanism triggered long before and I was wondering whether something had failed in the algo.

Hi There @DSheppard, yes FBM Experts program was going along slowly moving forward.

Unfortunately we are having more than one issue with the use of the program, i like the idea of an auto trader program, may have made a mistake with this one? Unsure.
Not keen on their management or contact skills either, but that's a whole separate issue.

Have you brought it? or just looking at this stage?

The Wife (Guest) thats my girl.

I cant get the post reopened to continue my story of discovery of the auto trader program, nor am i allowed to create a new post according to James from IG, who i had close my thread, due to the company not liking prices and pairs mentioned, it seems they had a few angry customers who paid more for less, not really my problem they arent good at negotiating deals, Its like buying a Car, no one pays the same sticker price on the window.

@davidbrister Thanks for the reply.  I've been running the demo, which has actually made 1.5% in 2 weeks, with 5% drawdown.  I have also had multiple sales people try to flog the the product multiple times.  I find them aggressive and pushy, which makes me think there is something dodgy going on.  I have had the same experience with regard to emailing questions and getting a call to respond. 

I haven't bought it yet, so think I've give it a wide birth.  

Thanks all for the feedback and knowledge.  Much appreciated.

    • Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG? I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?
    • US Dollar - The World's Reserve Currency: The US Dollar as the world's reserve currency is an issue which causes mix reactions and thoughts. When the US Dollar  became the reserve currency there was no Euro or Chinese Renminbi. Since their introduction it has eaten into the US Dollar's world dominance and as a result has led to it declining from the 70%-80% range to the 60% range. If one remembers, the UK Pound Sterling, once was the world's reserve currency but it now only accounts for around 4% at the moment. So things can change and it is not a given that the US Dollar will remain the world's reserve currency forever. It will have to earn that right which it may well do.  The US Dollar’s share of global central bank reserves hit a 5-year low, according to the International Monetary Fund. Now is this the beginning of a significant change here? Is the US, the world superpower it once was? There is no doubt it is the mightiest country in the world at this moment in time in terms of economics but imagine if the US Dollar lost its reserve currency status. This would have a large impact on the economics within the US.  I do not envisage the US losing its status anytime soon but if things continue to get worse and other countries find ways to conduct international transactions / transfers / payments without the need to hold US Dollars, and an alternative arises then who knows. 
    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
