Quote from profitloss999:
I have been wondering if it sounds too good to be true that an automated trading method makes money.
You do nothing, just relax and watch it making money.......
It takes a lot of skill, effort and time to develop a working automatic system (and as well to keep it profitable over a long run). That's the thing you invest.
The amateur level things you find in the net (like c2, etc.) are mostly worthless crap.
The origin of the profit depends on the specific strategies your algos are following ...
