    Default Trading systems for a newbie

    So hello all, im a rather new trader and while still learning alot i came into a possesion of a friends trading system which he used to use. The system not costs 500$ and he says its making him money, so hes giving it to me for a few weeks to try it out and not be skeptical about his "making money with trading software which is impossible". So i did some ressearch and the software seems legit on my demo account it does indeed make money. So now im asking before you all start screaming "abbandon all hope ye who trade with software" does anyone have any info since i never traded with any trading software and im a rather new trader, if the account continues to generate profit for me should i invest say 500$ in it?

    This sounds excellent!
    Why do you want to only invest $500?
    You have the proof your friend is trading it and making money
    I would say the minimum you should invest is 10,000, even borrow if you have to, use your mothers pension as well if you can

    Step one should be to determine the largest drawdown that you can expect to incur over the next 12 months. Step two, multiply that by a reasonable factor, lets say by a factor of 3. Step 3 is to beg, borrow or steal every penny you can lay your hands on, and trade it for as long as losses don't exceed your drawdown limits.

    I have to say I'm amazed that anyone would sell a system for 500 bucks. It complete insanity to do so. Im even more amazed that anyone would consider investing such a minuscule amount on a system that they believe actually works.

    If you don't actually know how and why the edge works, then blow the 500 bucks in the nearest casino, I suggest placing the whole lot on a single spin of roulette, then walk away regardless of the outcome.

    You can certainly make money from automated trading, but its a great deal more complex than learning to trade a discretionary method, and the key thing to note is that in reality for most automated retail traders the profits are far from consistent, and it'll take more than a few weeks forward testing to determine if the method has merit.

    no, no link, i was just asking, i know how it all looks, and it's perfectly fine if you think so, the thing is i got it for a few weeks maybe 2 months max and so far (1 week) it's been doing a steady profit on larger time frames (4h).
    By all sane logic regardless of the trolling intentions from some people i do realize something like this needs to be tested first and seen for myself if it does actualy produce profits in the long run. The 500$ is cause thats what i can afford to lose right now (if it goes south). But for now it looks all well and fine and in profit.. So thats why i was asking around, i never used one and i don't want it to just start losing money for me, as all the reviews i read online aren't really "positive" in feedback...
