A quick search is bring up some pretty shady practices by Bitcoin Evolution including fake celebrity endorsements, characters involved in BE known from previous BTC bot companies shut down for scamming and references to BE being a clone to previous companies shut down for scamming. If a bot is the route you want to go down I think you should probably avoid BE and keep searching.

Thanks for reply, also do these "robots" actually exist (if so are there any recommended ones) as they claim to be faster than the human at making decisions when due to really powerful computers with upto 85% accuracy? I have read a couple of reviews but think that they maybe fake too?

There are many bots available, thousands in fact and for all different types of trading, most are EAs for auto trading on the mt4 platform. The biggest resource is on the MQL5 market place where at least there are user reviews posted and usually a free trial period and any disputes are resolved by the web site controllers.

The key to bots is not the speed but the relentless search for a particular setup and the systematic execution. That can be a disadvantage as well, bots are poor at reacting to changing market conditions, a bot written for a trending market will give back profits when the market starts ranging and visa versa.

Ask yourself one question: if you had designed, built and deployed a "bot" which consistently made money would you:

a: set up a business to manage other peoples money, build an infrastructure to keep track of positions, balances etc. then spend money on sales and marketing and above all ensure you comply with all relevant regulations regarding the running of such a business (i.e. very stringent if you are managing other peoples money).

or

b: keep it for yourself and trade your own money

I know what I would do 😉

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
