Why trade other peoples systems?

  1. I went on this thread expecting people to share their systems.

    But it seems when it comes to Autotrading, people trade strategies they got off their broker or off some website??

    Why is it, when traders want to design a mechanical system that they will trade, they create and develop and test the system from scratch, yet, when it comes to autotrading, they think they can rely on somebody else to do the hard yards for them??

    Has anybody on here actually designed a system which they autotrade?
