Expert Advisors On Trial At ATS


After seeing countless expert advisors being offered for sale I was wondering if any of them actually live up to their hefty claims and wanted to get to the truth. I decided it would be a great idea to set up a trial and run it through my website so I could be 100% sure of the results and would finally have a definitive answer. I wanted to provide real time tracking that could be viewed on the website so my visitors could follow along and watch their progress.

The ‘Big Dog Trial’ was born…

I sent emails to the owners of 10 of the most well known EA’s available and waited for a response. Who would be brave enough to accept my challenge? Well as it turns out there were actually more than I was expecting that quite happily took me up on my offer.

It’s only been a few days so others may come onboard but so far I have got , , and . Hopefully at least one or two more will respond in the coming days so we’ll see.

I also wanted to set the trial up in as favorable conditions as possible. Notice I said ‘favorable’ not biased or rigged. It just makes sense to me if you’re going to do a test then you may as well do it right. There’s no point trying to run these EA’s, or any EA for that matter, on your home computer. There are just too many things that can go wrong and I don’t know about you but if I’ve got my hard earned cash on the line I don’t want to run the risk of the local power company having an outage, which happens a lot round here unfortunately!

After doing tons of research I found a . Now the good thing about this, apart from the price of course, is they have a low latency. What that basically means is their vps machines are located in the same data center, or at least very close, as their brokerage servers. So time lag between the EA on the VPS giving the signal to the broker and the order being placed by the broker is minimal. That’s a MAJOR factor when running so make sure you check out where your vps is located in relation to your broker.

I’m still in the process of setting the whole thing up and it should be live in a few more days.

Just wanted to post an update as I have had many emails asking when the ‘Big Dog Trial’ will begin.
