What do we have to expect when trading with this Forex robot? Keep on reading to find out the answers.
FX Classic Trader: Characteristics
We would like to start with a website presentation. It is poorly organized and has plenty of spelling mistakes. The developer needs to hire a good content writer with much better English to write a good quality website content, because what we see on their website has nothing in common with professional approach:

Currency Pairs, Strategy & Timeframe
The one thing we know is that their robot does not use Martingale and has a unique trading algorithm.
The robot decides when open and close trades, analyzing the market condition hourly. This EA was designed to work on the MT4 platform and trade only EUR/GBP on the H1 timeframe.
FX Classic Trader Trading Performance
There is a backtesting report on the FX Classic Trader website:
The backtesting started on January 2, 2017, and ended on March 30, 2020. The robot traded EUR/GBP on the H1 timeframe with a 90% modeling quality. An initial deposit was $499. For 3 years of testing, the EA has brought over $783K of the total net profit. The average win was $2295, while the average loss was significantly higher $-9124. The peak drawdown was 14, 78%. The profit factor was high and equaled 13, 23. For three years and 2 months of trading, the robot has closed 429 trades with 85, 64% win rate for short positions, and 86, 34% win rate for long positions.
The devs provide the live trading result on their website:
This account was added on fxblue on June 7, 2020:
This is a Real USD trading account deposited at $3,227. There is much free margin, so the margin level is 2,159.6%. For 7 months of trading, the total gain has grown up to 252.13% with a monthly gain of 20.49% and a weekly gain of 4.54%. Now, its balance equals $13 532 with $10 305 of the closed profit.
The peak drawdown was only -1.8%:
As you may see on the screenshot above, the robot trades smoothly and predictably. The robot has traded 185 trades with an average trade win of 67.6% (won 125 trades). An average trade frequency is up to 0.7 trades per day. The average win ($157.20) equals the average loss ($-155.75). The average trade length is 2.4 days. Its profit factor is much less than the one on the backtest (2.10).
The robot trades both directions equally by Profit Factor and Win-Rate.
The system uses only 1 strategy for trading:
It trades only 1 currency pair as it should be:
It trades daily, from Monday to Friday. The most profitable days for trading are Tuesday ($2, 852.47; 2,18 Profit factor), Thursday ($2, 662.27;2, 63 Profit factor), and Friday ($2, 820.19; 3, 80 Profit factor).
How much does it cost?
The robot was introduced it 3 different packages:
- Basik (what? Even the name of the package has a spelling mistake)
It is a lifetime package, which costs $109. It includes 1 Read and 1 Demo account.
It is available to buy for $129. It includes 2 Real and 2 Demo accounts.
The Premium pack costs $149. It comes with 3 Demo and 3 Real accounts.
Unfortunately, there is no word mentioned about the money-back guarantee. It looks suspicious. So, if we invest our money in this EA will we be able to ask for a full money refund in case we find the EA unprofitable? Why is this sort of info undisclosed on the sales page of the developer?
Reviews from customers
FX Classic Trader has an account on the Forex Peace Army website. However, it has a zero-rating and no customer review.
Should You Use FXClassicTrader Robot/EA?
|Backtesting results provided||Lack of vendor transparency|
|Live trading results provided||Undetailed trading strategy|
|Affordable price||Poorly organized website|
|No customer review|
|No money-back guarantee|
Wrapping up our FX Classic Trader review, we would not recommend this robot to the public. Firstly, the website is poorly organized and is difficult to read because of a bunch of spelling mistakes. Secondly, we are not provided with detailed trading strategy info. Although the price is not high, the absence of customer reviews and a money-back guarantee are the factors that do not allow us to say that this EA is worth trying. We are not ready to risk money and rely on the vendors who failed to disclose their identity and headquarter location.
