Automatic Forex Trading Systems - Finding the Best for Profits

By: Monica Hendrix
Automatic forex day trading systems allow traders to make money by simply following forex trading signals which are generated by the system they are following. It's time efficient and allows you to make money without much effort - but how do you find a good system?

If you want to get rid of 99% of systems advertised on the net which are destined to lose - look for the disclaimer below and pass it by.

Read the disclaimer carefully:

"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".

An automatic forex trading system that carries the above note in relation to performance ( or similar) means it has NEVER been traded for real and simply simulated in hindsight and that of course is easy. We could all be rich beyond our wildest dreams if we had tomorrow's price today, but forex trading is a little bit harder - we need to trade not knowing the future!

The forex trading systems that you see for a few hundred dollars and sold on the net with extraordinary track records always carry the above.



You can find some with real track records and these are the ones you should seek out.

Sure, past performance doesn't guarantee future results but if you are like me at least it shows the vendor has had the confidence to trade it!

If you do find one with a track record of real gains, make sure you are happy with the track record and you understand how and why the system works, so you can follow it with discipline.

A Better Way to Make Forex Profits

There is another route get your own together and trade it - building a forex trading system is not as hard as ,many traders think and we have covered this in our other articles.

You can of course get some free automatic trading systems and one of the best is Richard Donchian's 4 week rule.

This is a simple powerful system devised by the father of modern trend following - Richard Donchian and it's been used as a base by many of the world's top traders and is so simple:

All it postulates is the 4 week cycle can be traded in any currency or commodity.

All you do is buy a 4 week high and go long, or sell a 4 week low and go short - that's it!

Sounds simple - it is and you don't even need a computer package to do it, you can do it by hand. Does it work? Back test it and see.

Simple forex trading systems work as they are more robust than complicated ones with fewer elements to break. The above is simple - but don't think that it doesn't make money, it does.

If you want to follow an automatic forex trading system find one with a real time record but a better way in our view is to build your own or use a free one like the 4 week rule - the 4 week rule has made money and will continue to do so unlike the systems sold with simulated track records and of course it's free - look it up and test it and you maybe surprised at how much money it makes.
