Forex MegaDroid – What Works and What Doesn't


The Forex MegaDroid team seemed to think that the NFA's new FIFO regulations were going to cause their creation some problems. On July 5th they sent an email to their customers promising that:

We're working on a new release of Forex MegaDroid that'll allow it to continue trading once the new rules take effect.

We're a customer of theirs, but we never received that new release.  Instead we received another email from them on July 31st that outlined a number of problems the new NFA regulations would supposedly cause, including:

No way to open orders with StopLoss and TakeProflt levels

As we found out when we took a look at the Interbank FX version of MetaTrader, build 225 released on July 10th had no problem opening orders with built in StopLoss and TakeProflt levels. I can only suppose the Forex MegaDroid team never got around to testing their robot with that version of MetaTrader. If they had tried it, surely they would also have rewritten their email that forecast "Kiss Your FX Trading Goodbye"?

We wanted to do our latest Forex MegaDroid backtest using an account from an NFA regulated broker. However our mini account with Interbank FX wouldn't let us download historical data to allow us to do a comprehensive backtest – It complained that "There are no new data for a symbol 'EURUSDm'".  To get around that problem we opened a demo  account with Alpari US and downloaded their latest history data for the EUR/USD pair.  We again found ourselves running MetaTrader 4.00 build 225, and here are our latest backtest results starting from March 30th up until August 14th:

Forex MegaDroid post apocalypse backtest results

These results were produced using a GMT Offset setting of +2, and our "optimised" Risk Level setting of 0.3403. As you can see, version 1.11 of the Droid seems to still work as it always did, even after the FIFO rules came into force on August 2nd. As in all our previous backtests the Forex MegaDroid continues to produce significant losses from time to time.

We can only assume that Albert and John and the rest of the Forex MegaDroid team have great difficulty distinguishing fact from fantasy. They say that their Robot will stop working and it doesn't. Then, despite all the evidence to the contrary, they continue to claim that it can perform miracles, and has still "Had no losing trade since 20th March 2009!".
