Hello to all, IÂ´been manually trading futures for some time (with X-Trader) and I normally can achieve like 70-80% of what my trading system stadistics really represent. I mean, I run my trading system on a charting program and I can view what is the amount of money that my system could achieve if I could perfectly fill the signals the system sends to me. But volatility and other factors makes that may be I canÂ´t buy/sell at the ticks my system says, so I donÂ´t have the exact profit/losses that my system could achieve. So, based in your experience with automated trading plaforms I would like to ask you 3 questions for those that use them for intraday trading (meaning that you have more than 10-20 trades everyday): 1) What is normally the difference (in %) between what your trading systems says and what the automated trading platform can achieve?. Do you for example win or loss like 80% of what your system will do if it could perfectly fill all the signals at the exact ticks?. How many ticks do you normally lose with your trading platform?. 2) Do you think that your automated trading platform is a better choice than if you were trading manually in terms of slippage or do you use it just for convenience and to forgot the stress of having to deal with the markets everyday (despite you lossing more money with the automated trading plaform than doing it yourself)?. 3) Does your automated trading platform gives too many mistakes, instability and other problems that makes you to have to be all the day looking at the screen checking it out that there are no problems (like the automated trading platform is holding an open position when in fact it has had to be a closed position, making you losing a lot of money) or you trust 100% on its stability and effectiveness andyou can go all the day out without worrying about it?. It could also be good if you say what is the automated trading platform you are using. Thank you! Regards.
