Thank you for the post Julian. It's been a struggle getting to this point I must admit. But if the thread is still here in a week's time hopefully it will be here to stay.
I am the developer of the EAs for the EzeFX site. The first commercial EzeFX EA was modified from another commercial EA by agreement with the original developers but this proved to be not as successful as we would have liked. So I decided to write a completely new EA from scratch. This had a number of advantages including:-
1. I understood all the code, making user and coding problems easier to solve.
2. We did not have to pay royalties to the original developers, so the software prices could be reduced where appropriate.
I have been programming for more than 45 years and decided to program EAs because I liked the idea of my software benefiting me directly rather than someone else. Also because I will never be able to trade manually and EAs are, for people like me, the perfect solution.
Our current EA is EZE008 which is finishing beta testing this weekend. We are introducing new pricing which will allow EzeFX members to download and run EZE008 free. Bear in mind that EzeFX is a subscription site so there is a small monthly fee. This pays for support, updates etc.
So if EZE008 is a good and profitable EA, why will it be free to members? Because I've developed EZE016.
Most criticisms of EZE008 are that it is "slow" and "boring". Sorry about that. Here is a live account link.http://999cjb.mt4stats.com
This runs on 10% risk and the account balance is now $446. So, all being well, about 37% annual profit. This is one currency pair at low risk. If this is too boring for you, there are plenty of exciting EAs to be found elsewhere. Or you could wait for EZE016. This is EZE008 on steroids but it won't be free and it won't be cheap.
EZE008 only opens new trades during a narrow time interval so just a few trades each week. EZE016 trades all the time and runs multiple trades concurrently. But it takes six weeks to fully backtest each currency pair although I'm running some live now and "living in hope".
The EzeFX website is as boring as EZE008. No videos, no startling graphics and no dubious claims.
Are you still awake? If this post is still here by the end of next week I'll post some more stuff. Meanwhile, feel free to ask any questions.
