The trader should not trade with advisors the work of which is based on the Martingale strategy. Such robots open minus orders more often than other ones.

Rules of working with forex advisors
  • Test the script. You can use a demo account and a special tester to fulfil this. It will allow you to identify drawbacks in the program work and to decide whether it is worth to use it.
  • Start trading with minimal lots. While testing, the program should show the efficiency of its work under such conditions. After that, the trader can increase the trading volume. It is better to start two robots with small deposit than to use one robot.
  • Choose the right leverage size. The trader can use the same characteristics, which he is used to setting when trading manually. When using the maximum size of leverage, it is necessary to take the placing of Stop Loss seriously and choosing the trading volume.
  • Follow the manual. If there is no instruction for the trading robot you like, it is better to refuse using it. Otherwise, you may not reach the desired result.
  • Control the deposit. There should be only funds required for trading on the trader's account. It is better to withdraw all the profit which has been made to the reserve account at the initial stage.
  • Use the robot safely. To minimise financial risks, it is better to confirm executed orders manually. The only case when such an option is not available is while scalping on M1 timeframe.

When following rules mentioned above, it becomes possible to make automated trading more effective.
