Does Econ Power Trader become a scammer?

Today’s robot is Econ Power Trader. The presentation starts with a lie that the robot can made about 1500% of the profit for several months.

Every move through the presentation enhanced by the give us your email to get a spam ad. It’s so annoying and not professional. 

Econ Power Trader presentation

The main statements about the forex robot functionality tell us nothing about what strategy(-ies) is/are behind the system. LeapFx is beginner-friendly, has adaptive technology, has a stop-loss system, trades most major currency pairs, and a money-back guarantee is provided.

The next we see a lot of screenshots flipped aside to catch our attention. All of them are two years old.

Another “market annihilator” shows up. When we read statements like this we understand that devs treat us like idiots.

Devs tell many words. There’s a wall of endless text, but nothing about what strategy is behind. There provided just info like that: “With a radical and innovative automated tool that we created that uses adaptive intelligent news trading technology, also known as AINTT, you can now easily navigate the treacherous and unexpected volatility from financial news and world events.”

In the mid of the presentation, we’ve found explanations about the robot strategy. It’s a news trading EA. The system will open these orders usually a few days of every week since there generally are at least 1 or a few high impact news opportunities at least every day or every other day from one country or another.

From the one side, timing in putting pending orders is so important to get profit from the deals during news events. Positioning is the second part of successful trading. When opening pending orders for news trades it’s important that the orders are not too far, but also not too close to the current price action. The system is designed to pick the statistically most intelligent pending order positions, then open them, and manage them with impeccable timing. High impacts events start in about several seconds after placing pending orders. If the market doesn’t practically move, the system closes these orders.

The system enhanced by:

  • 15-20 pips stop-loss
  • 100 pips take profit
  • double trailing stop protection
  • doesn’t use a grid strategy
  • doesn’t use martingale
  • doesn’t use a cost averaging strategy
  • trades without leverage.

There are two accounts (fxblue and myfxbook) and screenshots from the third one.

Econ Power Trader fxblue

The real account on fxblue has been withdrawn, so, the account is dead at least four months.

Econ Power Trader Myfxbook

The second account is demo one and it’s offline too. The last update has been exactly on April 1 two years ago. It’s a demo account, so, devs could trade with any risk/reward ratio without having been afraid of losing the account. That’s why we can see this amount of monthly gain. The max drawdowns are 40% with 1:500 leverage is a 100% way to zero the real account. The robot traded through the FXPrimus brokerage company, with 1:500 leverage on the MetaTrader 4 platform.

If the robot trades via a news strategy why has it been stopped? We understand why it offline if the demo account has been grown by trading via an arbitrage strategy. We know nothing about the number of updates that a robot could get during two years of existence. The price is quite high too. Paying $300 to check it’s good in 2020 or not looks like nonsense, right? The developers have to provide everything to convince us that Econ Power Trader is a good robot to trade in 2020. So, we can’t say to you that a robot is an option. If you want to try it, it’ll be completely up to you.
