Forex Trading Robots Vs Manual Trading Which Is Best?

by kelly Price

Should you buy a forex robot and trust it to lead you to currency trading success or should you learn forex trading yourself and trade manually? Which is more likely to lead you to currency trading success?

Consider this question:

If forex robots make as much as they claim why don't banks and brokerages sack their fund managers and dealers and use robots?

Think about it - most of the forex trading robots you see claim to make as much, if not more than the best bank dealers, yet only cost a few hundred bucks.

So why don't the banks and brokerages sack their dealing teams that cost them far more? You could ask yourself as well - why bother working, when you can just sit at home, put your feet up and your robot goes to work for you?

The answer is of course the forex trading robots you see online won't make you money long term. Why? Well consider this, all the track records you see are made up in hindsight and simulated, there NOT real trading. Here is the typical disclaimer you will see:

"CFTC RULE 4.41 - Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown".

Think a track record with the above printed on it will make you money? Well try it and see!

These automated trading systems are designed to appeal to the greedy or naive investor and they really should know better - making money in any venture is not easy.

There is one advantage you have over any robot - you are capable of independent thought, no computer can think for itself and your brain is an amazing tool - if you use it correctly.

The rewards with manual trading are huge and you need to work smart and get a set of trading rules, to execute your trading system and have the discipline to follow it.

Forex trading offers huge rewards for the effort you need to put in and anyone can learn to trade - it's just a question of having the right mindset and right forex education.

Today, we marvel at computers and how they have enriched our lives - but in forex trading the appliance of science is not enough, as markets don't move to set formula's, there an odds game. However, if you learn how to trade the odds you can win.

So which is best using a forex robot or manual trading?

You know our view its manual trading although we have seen some robots that can make money (they are either expensive or require tremendous discipline) you can make more if you apply yourself correctly.

Forex trading is a challenge and one you win just keep in mind you can win have confidence in your ability and learn currency trading for long term gains and don't trust anyone else - especially not a forex trading system with a simulated track record!
