    This is an excellent idea and therefore please continue to make this more exhaustive for the benefit of all readers. I like this effort. Thanks.

    Though I am not into robotics or auto trade signals, it would be nice if it is available without too much extra effort.

    Personally I dont quite believe in robot EA. If programme is written by proven trader it would then convince me.
    In any case if FPA goes ahead with performance report I would prefer to Have ~ Best performance tests of the month by winning transactions.

    Hi Bill K
    Great idea - I'd like to suggest a list on something a tad IT technical which is the actual execution performance of broker trading account hosted on VPS's
    The reason I'm suggesting this was I bought Thor II this month based on reviews and persuaded by the discount. What I've found in reality when trading live is the execution time of live servers and the combination of broker accounts on different VPS's vary, not only due to the stated "latency" but also depends on where the server is located and where your VPS is hosted and obviously the type of trading account offered by the various brokers. I must admit I found it a bit of a minefield since you can never really be sure of execution time until you have a live funded account !.
    So a list on that sort of thing I think would be extremely useful
    Keep up the good work
    Cheers

    I'd like to thank everyone for the feedback, both good and bad, so far. Please keep making suggestions and also comment on the suggestions others have made. I want as much information as I can get before proceeding.

    About demos. I have a plan for dealing with those. I'm waiting for word from the programmers on some changes I've requested be made to the main Performance Testing section of the site to come through. Demos will be still be allowed in PT for EAs, but only under some very special limitations.

    Demos won't be eligible for any Top 10 listings in Performance Testing. That privilege is reserved for live accounts only.

    Good thoughts - I would like the best rated sites. It adds some human respondse to the stats.

    I believe that Best Performance Tests of the Month by profit/drawdown ratio for the month would be the most useful. I would stress especially a word drawdown here.

    Hi All,
    Personally I think, trading with EA's is a waste of time. It will consume your money in no time. EA's are for people who want to make a quick "buck", without making any efforts to learn the proper ways of trading. EA's are another "quick get rich" con.

    A wonderful idea. It'll make it easy to note performance easily especially long term performance
