If you want to gain an understanding of the benefits of Forex robots, spend some time reading genuine customer reviews online. Yes, they can scan millions of charts in just a few seconds, but a high percentage of them churn out incorrect information. They are only robots after all. And robots can only perform as well as their program, and they don’t have the ability to think creatively. Their functionality is limited to past performance and how they have been programmed.
We’d advise traders not to depend on one entirely for conducting all trading activity. Trading requires a high level of human observation and research. Humans are also much better at following economic conditions and keeping up to date with financial news. Robots usually pick out positive trends and trading signals. However, functionality can be hampered by jittery trends or incorrect information. There is also the risk of hackers and viruses messing up the plan.
If robots made it easy to make money trading Forex everyone would be jumping on the bandwagon, and nobody would need to go to work. We agree that a robot can make money, but it is usually for a limited time. Before long it will start losing money and you may even find your account being completely wiped out.
Forex trading requires more than an automated system
To be successful in the market of Forex trading requires more than a little good luck. The most successful Forex traders will have skill and knowledge, visually and analytically. Trading in the financial markets requires practice and is considered by many to be an art. Markets conditions change continuously and only an experienced trader can anticipate when to enter a market and when to steer clear.
We’re not saying you shouldn’t spend your money on robots or automated software, because at the end of the day the decision is yours. However, we would recommend you consider it very carefully, weighing up all the pros and cons. And spend some of your time and money learning about the different trading systems and possibly trying them out with a demo account, before trading for real money.
Robots are a tool for lazy traders, and surely they’re going to take all the fun out of trading? But promises of big profits with little or no effort – what isn’t there to like about that? All we can say is be careful and find out as much as you can before spending your cash. And remember that there is far more enjoyment to be had from trading in the Forex markets than pressing a few buttons and letting a piece of software do all the work.
