I personally had a very bad experience with a commercial automated trading system (Fap Turbo). I bought Fap Turbo back in January of 09, and a month later I was requesting my money back. I think the scalping part of the system might work in the long run, but I tried the "long term investment' strategy and that was SERIOUSLY FLAWED. My theory is that the people who develop those systems are not interested in making people money that use it; but rather making money by selling it. I have a feeling that the people who develop those commercial automated trading systems have probably never traded on the forex personally. You never hear successful traders selling their strategy to other traders. I think the best thing a person can do is trade on the forex manually. If you want to view my manual trades, go here: http://alexjbrandtfx.mt4stats.com I know the automated trading systems sound very appealing, but if your serious about trading and want to make money trading, you'll do it manually. I think that my stats prove that manually trading can be more profitable then any commercial system out there, and I didn't have to pay a penny to develop my own trading strategy, just had to use my brain!
But anyways, as a result of my experience with Fap Turbo, I decided to go and develop my own automated trading system. (mixed results) It would have a very nice string of winners, then a big losing trade would come along and wipe out all the profit. Thats when I decided to hang up the towel with automated trading systems. If you do want a commercial automated trading system, do not buy one. Rather, look for a privately developed system thats free. There are a fair amount out there, such as trading signals and some listed on forex forums such as
