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.

    • 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.
    • "....more broadly we have seen currency wars but these have not really captured the imagination of the MSM yet" Actually I'd argue we have had currency wars for some years already. History shows it goes in the following order: Currency war, Trade war, War. (Regrettably).  If I recall correctly the market falls of early 2015 (about 20% down) were blamed on Yuan being devalued by Chinese manipulation. Way before Trump! "....we suddenly get a super massive set of central bank policies that drop rates to zero" Again I'd say that has been going on for some years. Arguably you could say about 35 years since the Plaza Accord. Once fiat became unaccountable (no gold standard) the politicians proceeded to spend, spend spend =debt,debt,debt. Expect MMT  (US Democrats pushing modern monetary theory) to allow them to continue in that vein. Again history says these currencies will all eventually disappear, like species, approx 95% no longer exist.  Broadly I agree with what you say. The present financial system is critically sick that's for sure. It has propped up assets with huge doses of QE and zero rate interest policy (expect more of that when the ECB meets next month). You are correct about the size of stock markets. If the global market was a horse the bond market would be three legs of it! I digress.... However, if you are faced with massive debts then here are your options: 1) Default - Argentinian/Zimbabwe style. Not likely, at least until all other options tried - as that's the end game. 2) Grow the economy at a fast enough rate to meet and exceed future repayment obligations. In a global low anaemic growth environment? Unlikely. 3) Inflate like mad. It's the only viable option. You could, reasonably say, that after 3 massive QE sessions and ZIRP and now  NIRP that deflation is winning. Arguably it's all been a waste of time / money. Where's the kitchen sink? Presumably more of the same and then some helicopter money? It seems to me that this is more in line with Japan (targeted 10yr bond rate = 0%) which someone said in the 90s was  "...the dress rehearsal. The rest of the world will be the main event". Trying to get inflation without destroying the USD global reserve status is unlikely in my opinion and you can't help but feel that some sort of Bretton Woods global RESET will eventually emerge. It's certainly what Russia, China, Syria, Iran, Turkey etc are angling for.....and their central banks have been big buyers of bullion recently. That's why I'd recommend holding gold. Not as a trading strategy (which is what I appreciate this forum is). Nice sharing these thoughts with you>
    • So it looks like my crazy set of channels on the Daily chart is still holding well.  The breakout of the last channel line, which coincides with a nice zone of lateral S/R was retested but failed as I noted in my previous post.  I got Short off an initial rejection from this zone and Resistance line with a tight stop but price never came back so nicely in on a couple of Short positions and stop protected at BE.  Price moved back through the monthly lower channel line (purple) and put in a quick daily candle failed retest and dropped away.  It is possible we could see another retest of this resistance zone before any further move but a break below the 5760 level would be indicative that the Bear has resumed and obviously a break of the previous low around the $56 mark would once again bring $50 into focus.
