The next method, add_new_position, takes the parameters necessary to add a new position to the Portfolio. Notably, it takes the add_price and the remove_price. I have not used the bid and ask prices here directly because the addition and removal prices will depend upon whether the side is "long" or "short". Hence we need to correctly specify which price is which in order to obtain a realistic backtest:

In a margin account, the broker uses the $1,000 as a security deposit of sorts. If the investor's position worsens and his or her losses approach $1,000, the broker may initiate a margin call. When this occurs, the broker will usually instruct the investor to either deposit more money into the account or to close out the position to limit the risk to both parties.

Almost all of the reviewed Forex robots here are for beginners and are newbie traders friendly. However we recommend trading with one or more of FxAutomater EAs that include WallStreet Forex Robot, Volatility Factor, Forex Diamond, Forex Trend Detector & Forex Gold Investor (New EA trading Gold via MT4), all of which are self dependent, totally automated, easily installed beside that they are making excellent results starting from 2018 as a continuation of their previous proven success over the past few years! They are currently offering price discounts on their EAs! FxAutomater group are highly experienced Forex System Developers with good reputation!
Overall, the Odin Forex Robot is a unique and according to the statements shared by the developer a profitable forex robot. It is reasonably priced and has some unique features such as the broker shield. It comes with instructions, support, updates and a money back guarantee. I would start on an mt4 demo account to begin with until I became familiar with the EA although keep in mind that demo account conditions can vary greatly from live account conditions due to the different price feeds and liquidity.
Well, Blessing 3 EA is an empty Forex robot, which means that it has a good strategy but misses an optimized set file to run safely on a real account and be able to make profits, I think that this is their way for marketing the paid version of the robot, and since we didn't test it previously we don't currently have an optimized set file for it (if this is what you mean by "our list") and can't recommend it too.
RISK WARNING: Iforexrobot is a software reseller, we do not offer investment advice or execute trades. The software we provide is a tool where the settings are input by the end user to design their own trading strategy. Trading forex and CFDs carry a high degree of risk to your capital and it is possible to lose your entire deposit. Only speculate with money you can afford to lose. As with any trading, you should not engage in it unless you understand the nature of the transaction you are entering, and the true extent of your exposure to the risk of loss. Between 74% and 89% of retail investors lose money with trading in CFDs. These products may not be suitable for all investors, therefore if you do not fully understand the risks involved, please seek independent advice.
What caught my attention at first glance, is its exaggerated price that doesn't reflect the profitability of the software in any way but gives it an important advantage as it won't be used by so many traders what will make its live market performance highly effective and successful if it was already well coded and configured, but for me, I won't risk a $2000 in a software without a clear refund policy. They say in the website that they provide 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee if the Robot doesn't WORK! which means that if the robot worked and was a loser, you don't have the right to request a refund, it finally worked on your platform regardless of its results.

In the last Forex Trading Diary Entry (#1) I described how to build an automated trading system that hooks into the OANDA forex brokerage API. I also mentioned that the next steps included constructing a portfolio and risk management overlay for all suggested signals generated by the Strategy component. In this entry of the diary I want to discuss my attempt to build a functioning Portfolio component and how far I've currently progressed.
Trading on a margin can have varying consequences. It can influence your trading experience both positively and negatively, with both profits and losses potentially being seriously augmented. Your broker takes your margin deposit and then pools it with someone else's margin Forex deposits. Brokers do this in order to be able to place trades within the whole interbank network.

Whether you have assets in a securities account or in a futures account, your assets are protected by U.S. federal regulations governing how brokers must protect your property and funds. In the securities account, your assets are protected by SEC and SIPC rules. In the futures account, your assets are protected by CFTC rules requiring segregation of customer funds. You are also protected by our strong financial position and our conservative risk management philosophy. See our Strength & Security page.


At this stage the "risk management" is rather unsophisticated! In the method calc_risk_position_size below we are simply making sure that the exposure of each position does not exceed risk_per_trade% of the current account equity. risk_per_trade defaults to 2% with the keyword argument, although this can obviously be changed. Hence for an account of £ 100,000, the risk per trade will not exceed £ 2,000 per position.
I am very interested in online Forex trading for the first time. I have been searching for a really good Forex Robot because I know nothing about technical. Although I am open to reasonable risk however I do not want to loose money for nothing. Any suggestion for a really good Forex Robot, that is easy to operate and works all by itself so that I do not have to do anything in decision making? Any suggestions about do's
Have been using many forex robots in the last years and I trade the Longbow EA with the H1 and M15 settings. This system needs time and since it uses very good risk settings i am very comfortable with it. Support is great and I can recommend it to those who are not looking for the holy grail but want to simply make good profits with low risk settings.

The FxPro Margin Calculator works out exactly how much margin is required in order to guarantee a position that you would like to open. This helps you determine whether you should reduce the lot size you are trading, or adjust the leverage you are using, taking into account your account balance. Select your trading instrument, your trade size, leverage and account currency, and click ‘Calculate’. Our Margin Calculator will do the rest.
In FX, the investor cannot attempt to buy on the bid or sell at the offer as is the case in exchange-based markets. On the other hand, once the price clears the cost of the spread, there are no additional fees or commissions. Every single penny gained is pure profit to the investor. Nevertheless, the fact that traders must always overcome the bid/ask spread makes scalping much more difficult in FX.
