    Winners Edge Trading = Forex Catapult

    It is so laughable, ridiculous that you may take a look by yourself.

    Contact Us | Forex Catapult

    Please If you purchased this one, complain to the right FPA folder.

    May be the guys will go to jail.

    This people shows an account in myfxbook with 31.28% profit... but if you go to custom analysis and change the history time, the actual LOSS is something around 3%. They lost 28% in august.

    :p

    Amazing - just upload your bad results to myfxbook and apply filters to make your product look successful.

    The FPA has the results of a live account being traded by Forex Catapult here:

    Forex Catapult Expert Advisor Real test by ForexPeaceArmy.com

    Currently, it's lost a little over 3%, but has been running for just under 3 weeks. It's too early to call it a failure, but so far I don't see anything so far that makes me want to run out and buy a copy.


    I'm not sure how them being part of a larger company makes them a scam. AthenaFx, do you have some other info on Winners Edge Trading?

    First, let me say I do not have a lot of experience with ea's and more specifically, back testing them.
    That said, Forex catapult, gives a free limited version of their ea (it only works on the Eurusd pair). I downloaded and ran a backtest on three different broker platforms (running from 1/1/2011 to 10/21/2011), with the following results;

    total net profit:

    FXDD: $2064.73 59 trades
    UPFX: $6110.64 63 trades
    Smarttradefx: $3252.03 58 trades

    I found it very interesting to see how the results varied from one broker to another.

    I would certainly invite someone/anyone to double check my testing or run their own tests and post them.
