It’s very rare for an EA to be consistently profitable for a long period of time. Market conditions change, so we’re always generating new strategies based on the most recent data from the broker/s. An EA may, over an entire 5 year period be profitable overall, but it will, a few times, go through draw downs. We try to avoid these draw downs by regularly analyzing our EAs and selecting the most profitable ones in current market. conditions.
This is probably a bit of a beginner question… but if the Robots are tested over a 5 year period, and deemed to be consistently profitable, why updated them every month? vs turning off robots that are in a loosing phase and then turning them back on again when their profitability has returned?
