Topic: Hello From USA.
My name is Jamil and I am from Virginia within the United States. I have been following forex since I was 16 years old watching over my dads shoulder. I have studied many strategies my dad has taught me, from price action trading and trend trading with EMA's and SMA's.
Using some manual systems my dad has taught me I have made some manual profits in the live markets once I was of age to trade with real money accounts. Over time I noticed that new implementations to the metatrader 4 platform would allow for auto trading strategies. I really became interested in automated trading because this form of trading seems to be useful for both expert and novice traders to incorporate with their manual trading strategies. It would be nice to be able to trust EA's fully and let them trade 24/5 with no intervention, but sometimes this is not such an intelligent idea because I have learned that some EA's can wipe an entire account over night.
We are still in the early stages of perfecting automated trading but I solidly believe that in the future automated trading will be superior in the trading arena. As Warren Buffet said the future of trading is automation.
Right now I only trust social trading networks like zulu trade to run completely unattended because I know that real live traders are placing trades. But still I must be cautious in which traders I pick to trade certain accounts in social trading because unlike EA's these traders all have emotions.
