GPS Forex Robot: Characteristics
The main video was telling us about Mark Larsen, who he is, and about his way of trading and making profits.
Next, we see a list of questions. Most profitable traders answered them much time ago, but for newbies, they’re hot ones.
Slowly but surely, we go to the core – an EA and trading system behind it.
There’s a 3rd-party account that belongs to a rich investor with the availability to deposit $1M in trading. Now, the account is tripled.
Also, the presentation includes many photos from exhibitions and so on, so those people should be real and influential.
Currency Pairs, Strategy & Timeframe
Let’s systemize what the developers told, first of all, about strategy.
- The EA opens intraday trade between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. depending on the broker GMT offset.
- A reverse strategy allows opening a trade in the opposite direction with increasing Lot SIze (we can manage multiplier or turn this option off) to cover previous losses.
- The robot doesn’t use Grid, Martingale, and trading without SL, only hedging.
- The robot works on the H1 time frame.
- The EA executes several times faster after receiving the 3rd update.
- We can change many parameters to customize the trading experience as we want.
- There’s a Trailing Stop Profit (but it’s a Trailing Stop Loss) feature to cover gained profits.
- It works with EUR/GBP, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/CHF symbols.

It’s hard to tell if it’s good or not. The main reason is that according to trading results, the EA can trade a single trade in one-two weeks. If you run a $100k account, one little trade that often can be good for a $150 price, but if you’re an average person with $1000 – $10000 on the account, just ask a question how long it takes to cover the price and make some profits for you. With less than 1% of the monthly profit, it’ll take half a year just to cover purchase for a $1k account. Comments vary, depending on the traders’ experience. Negative ones noticed that only EUR/USD looks like a currency to trade.
