I've been trading with the Australian version of The Intelligent Trader for about 6 months, and in the spirit of full disclosure, I'll admit I was asked by them if I would post some comments on FPA, since this is completely new product/service to the US, and no-one there would have heard of them. But that's all they asked - these are all my own words.
The Intelligent Trader uses the same algorithm as I'm copying in Australia, and the results have been extremely solid. Very small draw-downs, continual (virtually daily) profits, and full access to my account means I can monitor at all times. Just under 4% per month on average, although I think with the limit on leverage at 50:1 in the US it may be a bit lower over there. However, the risk should also be lower, so it's a trade-off.
I can't say a bad thing about them, and again, given you have complete access to your account, you can easily instruct your broker to stop trading, and withdraw funds at any time. For me that was a big confidence boost and took away a lot of the risk.
I've already added more funds and am in the process of adding some of my superannuation (retirement funds) as well. Very impressive trading strategy, which seems to work in all market conditions. We've had some big moves in both directions on some of the currency pairs, but nothing the trading couldn't handle. Overall, extremely happy and can recommend them without issue.
