I don’t know, but many people want something for nothing and think that a magical strategy, indicator, EA or their own so-called discipline will bring them success. The so-called mentors and scam artists of Instagram offer a lot of motivational quotes that make people think that just because they “have the desire” that they will become wealthy. It’s garbage.
Building functional EAs is hard work that requires ongoing attention. Just because someone published an EA, it does not mean it is a gem and you’ll be surprised how the technical indicator strategies even with multiple filters can be rather unprofitable when performing testing with every tick included. It does not mean that it is impossible to make a profit, but it is a challenging development process and you have to have a handle for the programming languages. Testing over the course of 2007-Current is the best way to get a true sense of whether the EA works… check the drawdowns and breakdowns by each month, quarter and year. What’s the Sharpe Ratio? What’s the Sortino Ratio? These are important factors. Then you forward test, debug, go live (or publish) if you wish and you still have to make sure that it works properly given the market environment. EA creators may have to make updates based on APIs and platform software updates… there’s a lot that goes into this that is completely unappreciated.
