      My name is Chingi, and I am very new to Forex, and to EA Forex Academy. I have taken the all-in-one pack and I am currently learning from the courses.Β  I have spent many hours reading the forum and decided to open this topic(sorry if similar one already exists).

      I want to know how satisfied are the traders with the automated trading software EA Studio? I have left 20 days now to use it, and I consider taking the Optimal pack, but I would really appreciate if someone shares with me if it really worth?

      Does it have any bugs that you see with the created EAs?

      Are the strategies generated real? I mean do backtest match actual trading?

      Welcome, Chingi!

      From my experience with EA Forex Academy and Petko Aleksandrov, I can assure you that you are on the right place to learn!

      I started without any education, and lost some money trying to trade. After IΒ  found the courses of Petko and EA Studio, I am much more comfortable, and I start to get some profits.

      Now, for me EA Studio is absolute must in trading. I would not imagine now trading without it! Really…I mean what we would do if we can not generate EAs? How would you know when to enter on the market, and when to exit? Simple question, but believe me, I am right!

      It is up to you, if you are going to continue with it, but for me is the best trading software!

      @Chingi-Welcome to the group! You’ll find that we are a happy-go-lucky bunch. πŸ™‚

      You’ll probably see a lot more of my posts on this forum more recently as I like to share my experience with EA Studio. Take a look at my post about 2019 being a great year and you will see my live account trading results. I’ve already made my initial trading investment and also my cost for purchasing EA Studio for 3 months. I just bought the 1 year license and I’m sure I’m going to make back that investment amount within the next 2 months or sooner. So, I’m looking at 10+ months of sweet, sweet profit for the rest of the year.

      I only do automated trading. I look at no charts whatsoever. I have a VPS right now, so I load my EAs on my MT5 terminal and let them go. As long as the markets are open, my EAs are trading. I’ve been involved in trading for about 2 years. I started out with Nadex binary options and loss more than I won some. I tried different outlets to purchase strategies, signals, etc. Nothing worked for me. I was led to Petko’s class because I was interested in trading cryptocurrency. After taking this class, the EA Studio automated trader in me was born. I hate staring at charts. I hate manual trading. Did I mention that I hate staring at charts? Cause I really do. Without EA Studio, I might have given up on trading as a way to make money and possibly replace my full-time job.

      I am very satisfied with EA Studio and I encourage anyone that wants to do trading to be sure to purchase this product. Yes, the strategies are real. Yes, I verified with the Strategy Tester that my strategies were about 99% matching ( the difference I found was like the time when a trade was opened and closed, but the end results were still the same). I have not seen any bugs with the performance of the EA generated (in either demo or live trading).

      Trading is always going to be a risk. But you can make excellent money in trading. You just have to be smart with your risk and money management (yes, these are 2 different things). Make sure that whatever money you put up to trade with is also money that you’re willing to lose. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. There is never a stupid question. Listen to Petko’s advice, be open-minded and creative, think beyond the box, and become an Expert in creating strategies with EA Studio. πŸ™‚

      These are all just my opinions as the choice is up to you. But know that you have a community here that is in the same boat as you.

      Great post, Jacpin! And you are right about it all!

      I forgot to mention that EA Studio is being updated all the time which is great. Since the first time I tested a trail, there are many new options and features. But the core is the same – it generates strategies, and we place them for trading. Easy peasy

      Andi, thank you for the fast replay. I see your point. I have never done trading and specially algorithmic trading. So what I do is to read all day and trying to learn much before start trading. I think I will go over all the courses from Petko, before having even a Demo account.

      It is interesting that you share your story, and your experience in trading. This way you will save a lot of time to beginner traders like me πŸ™‚

      Yes,Β  have been reading your post and from the others. and I was impressed that you share your trading results, and your experience. You seem to be very open minded person!

      I first started looking at some chart and analysis. I mean there are so so many places from where you can learn and all sounded too complicated. So I wanted something easier and automated. After looking for such a thing in Google, I came to the EA Forex Academy.

      After reading your post, I get more confident that I am on the right place to learn trading πŸ™‚

      And yes, for sure I will ask some stupid questions πŸ™‚



      Ps Can I use the automated trading software EA Studio on couple of browsers? I ran the generator and it worked!

      Welcome to the family. At the end of the day EA Studio and FSB are tools (I sound like Popov…). At the end of the day it takes time to get familiar with how to use them the right way. Take your time, ask lots of questions, you’ll find Petko to be a Very great resource if you get stuck.

      @Andi-Working smarter and not harder is the name of the game. πŸ™‚

      @ Chingi-Yes. I believe I have seen some other posts where people have 3-5 tabs up in Google Chrome with EA Studio running in all of them. I personally have ran EA Studio on Micrsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome all at the same time. I was running them for 3 different assets and timeframes. I have had no issues.

      @Roman-Ditto. Petko is an awesome resource.

    • #8331

      Hey guys, Roman, Jacpin, you are so kind calling me a resource πŸ™‚

      Jacpin, thank you for your advice, I will take the maximum of EA Studio running it on many windows.

      I think I even run it on many different tabs, even for one asset, it will just bring me more EAs…

      Hi Chingi Welcome to the family!

      I’m with Andi, go thru the courses from Petko and take notes or Favorite mark the things you would like to go thru again, this will save you a lot of time (and probably money) test all the platforms on Demo and when you feel conforteble go live with a very small amount just to test everything out.


      I’ve been in the EA community for about 1 year now and EA Studio is my final destination, will not look anywhere elsefor Algo setups.

      But I’m very new with EA Studio (14 days)


      I use to test and optimizeΒ  1 EA (Ichumoko) for usually about a week, and when building a portfolio and going thru FX pairs + non correlation that are profitble enough to fit my system it usually took me 2-3 months before I was completely done. With EA Studio it took me less than 48h to find a much more profitble setup than the portfolio I’ve been working on for months.


      With EA studio I can create multiple non correlatet strategies extremely easy so I can focus 90% on Money Management, Risk and new strategies (Markets, timeframes, assets) instead of putting in weeks of testing.


      Ask a lot of questings and read and study Petko’s (resourse) material with has helped me a lot on my jurney!

      Hello Dommech,

      thank you for being so kind!

      For sure I will test it all on Demo (at least I want to have an idea how it all works before putting real money).

      And yes, I will do my best to take notes from the courses, Petko is brilliant teacher in trading!

      I guess your experience in EA trading will help you understand and master EA Studio faster, that is great.

      Wow! I see so the automated trading software EA studio saves a lot of time just because it is automated doesn’t it? Even to experienced traders! Than I feel luck being here!

      Sure, I will ask questions on my way, and I will take the most out of the Forum and Petko’s courses and experience!

      Thank you so so much!

      For me, EA Studio was total game changer!

      I was testing strategies for about 3-4 years and never found a stable result.

      The worst thing when you test one strategy manually is that you do not know if it is profitable or now. You spend few months to come to the conclusion, which is always negative.

      When I found Petko’s courses, it all changed because I get to know EA Studio and I fell in love with that automated trading software.

      First, it is automated trading software, so we export strategies automatically

      Second, it generates strategies that are profitable!

      Third, it is easy to use and trading is just pleasure with it.

      Yes, there is some work to be done, but come on! We make profits over here!! πŸ™‚

    • #8415

      Hey Bob, thanks for sharing your story. I am sure you will motivate many new traders.

      The problem is that 95% of the traders get very skeptical after trading manually(just because they lose) and it is hard to believe that a software can bring you profits…however, thanks for the kind words, studding is needed, and I that is why I am here πŸ™‚

      Hey guys,

      pretty busy the last days!

      The automated trading software EA Studio has been my savior after I was scammed.

      It turned out that it is much better to learn to trade by yourself, and depend on your skills instead trusting someone.

      Of course, I wouldn’t do it without Petko, his courses, and his support.

      He has been very kind sharing so many strategies, teaching me 1:1, and basically having the chance to communicate with such a trader, gave me the power again to trade.

      As I said in other topics, already my profits are bigger than the losses I had, so I am very happy with EA Studio!

      Hello Chingi,

      I have experience with EA Studio since the time it was launched(before that was only FSB Pro).

      I can say that EA Studio is a must in algorithmic trading. I have about 5 years of experience in EAs, and I divide it all on two periods.

      First was the time when I started to try coding EAs and buying EAs which were expensive. Never ended with a good result.

      Second is when I found FSB Pro and EA Studio later on. Put my things together. Tested EAs for nearly year before going to live accounts, and saved some money. Now for the last one year I do this full time, so I can say that EA Studio and FSB Pro changed my life a lot!

      I do not have a boss over my head, I do not have working time, I take holidays whenever I decide, and most important I have time for my family now!

      So, how satisfied I am with EA Studio, from 1 to 100, definitely 101 πŸ™‚

      One word from me for EA Studio – BEST!

    • #8883
      User AvatarDesita

      Chingi, I think most of the people said all the nice things and benefits we get from using EA Studio.

      I will say it this way:

      Imagine you do not have EA Studio, how would you understand if one strategy made profit in the past or not? Traders get strategies from different courses, YouTube videos, and internet, and they start to test them on Demo.

      Manually we can not enter into every single trade. So even for some period this tested strategy is profitable, it might be a luck.

      If you have any EA, you can make backtesting in the MetaTrader, but there are no robustness tests to see if the strategy is over-optimized.

      The automated trading software EA Studio gives the solution to all above:

      1. You can see the actual performance of any strategy

      2. You can backtest any strategy and not lose time to test on Demo

      3. You can use the robustness tools to check if it is over-optimized

      4. You can generate strategies if you do not have!

      5. The key point is that you can export the strategies with ONE CLICK as Expert Advisors!

      I can not imagine trading without EA Studio, I wouldn’t know what to do really.

      Hello Desita,

      Thank you very much for the detailed answer!

      I start to realize how great is EA Studio, even I did not do any manual trading or with any Expert Advisors.

      I just wanted to learn trading, and I found the Academy and Petko’s courses. Which makes me think I am very lucky πŸ™‚

      The 5 points you say are really the key point I think as well!

      Thanks indeed!

      I took EA Studio sometime ago and I can say it is the best automated trading software!

      I have tested few, also spent a lot of money on Strategy Quant, but it did not bring me any profits.

      EA Studio is much more professional, it is being updated all the time, and the features are much more!

      And in the same time it is very easy to use.

      It is the best software for algorithmic trading. Saves a lot of time and opens new horizons.

    • #9225

      Hey guys, I am very glad that you all like EA Studio.

      I am glad that I decided to base some of my courses on it. It teaches a lot!

      Many traders realize that their trading systems were wrong when they build the strategy and see the actualΒ backtest.

      And it gives results, so you should be really satisfied from your work.

    • #9578

      Hey, Haliffa, than you for the kind words!

      I am really satisfied with what I do, especially when I see results from the students.

      I do my best in teaching, but all of you that already make profits with my systems have put a lot of effort, desire and practice.

      This means that it is because of you! All of you that study and practice hard.

      The results that everyone has is from what everyone does.

      EA Studio is the best strategy builder I have used. I used different ones in the future, but all is very basic compared to EA Studio.

      It has everything that the trader needs, and especially now with the update that was done in the acceptance criteria for In Sample and Out of Sample, all is complete!

      I was speaking with a friend trader who used Strategy Quant or something like that. When he described what is in there, I understood that it is years behind EA Studio.

      I think EA Studio will be number 1 automated trading software for many years. And they always improve it so maybe forever

    • #9754
      User AvatarDesita

      Strategy Quant has these ridiculous trading strategies that are generated and the trading rules are something like rsi multiplied by macd, and this value is used. I tried it but than I found EA Studio which creates logical strategies, and we can see the the indicators over the chart, and where the trades are opened and closed.

      I am not sure if all users of EA Studio realise how good it is.

    • #9945

      Hey Desita, you are right about Strategy QUant, I was testing it years back when I was choosing the strategy builder to use.

      At this time EA studio was not available, it was just FSB Pro. So comparing Strategy Quant and FSB Pro at this time, I saw that FSB Pro is much more advanced and detailed. Later EA Studio came up and I decided to use them both in the academy because they are really the top automated trading software pieces.

      I think Forex Software LTD with Mr. Popor are so good in what they do, so even someone invents something new and different, they will immediately add it to EA Studio and FSB Pro, so we will have it too as function.

      It is time for me to share my experience with EA Studio.

      I have found the Forex Academy after some struggling in my trading…

      First I lost one account trying to trade manually…I used three strategies that I bought, but I did it all wrong – missed many entries, risked a lot from the account, and finally, I got the margin e-mail from the broker.

      Second, I found one developer online and I sent him the strategies to make the EAs. He charged me 250USD for each one, so totally I paid 750USD. This took one month and 10 days. I was so happy when those were ready, and I just placed them on a new live account, because I Was sure that profits will be there. The account started to lose, and then I just stopped. I was so frustrated, no Idea what was wrong because I believed in those strategies. Obviously, they were sold to me in a very promising way.

      I found a video in YouTUbe how to make backtesting in Meta Trader, and when I did it, I realized the hard truth, these strategies were losing.

      I tried to optimize them, but without result.

      Anyway, at that moment I realized something very important. That having an EA for one strategy is the only way we can understand if this strategy is profitable or not.

      After that, I started to look for education about creating Expert Advisors without IT knowledge, because I am not an IT girl. This is how I found the courses of Petko and the Forex Academy.

      I took 3 of his courses here, and they were exactly what I needed.

      After that, I took EA Studio and FSB Pro. Now I am focused on EA Studio and hopefully, next month when I have a bit more time, I will work on FSB Pro.

      So what is my experience with EA Studio so far:

      • I can export the strategies as Expert Advisors, so I do not need to pay developers. Imagine I gave 750 for 3, not profitable strategies.
      • I can see the results of the strategies before exporting them, not after creating them(what happened with me)
      • I can generate profitable strategies without having any strategy as a base. The generator for me is the coolest thing with EA Studio.
      • I can create an unlimited number of strategies, and export them all as EAs

      Of course, I learned a lot from the courses because there are many tricks that Petko shares. Yesterday I took his last course with the AUDUSD where he shows how to use the EA Studio to avoid Demo trading. I liked it, and I will try this method for my currencies with small 0.01 lot.

      So if someone reads this post before starting manual trading, I think I will save you a lot of time and money πŸ™‚

      As a conclusion, the automated trading Software EA Studio is the best choice I have done in trading so far, and it worths the money, because I do not need a developer, and I know which strategies to use.

    • #10028

      Hello Mary,

      very nice of you to share your story. I was in a very similar situation with developers, and not with just a few EAs, but many. I spent about 2 years working with developers before getting to know FSB Pro and EA Studio. That was the hardest period in trading for me.

      Anyway, good to know you are on your feet now.

      User AvatarMeryjonestexas

      Hey Andi,

      You are right, EA studio gives me the control to build my strategies with the entry and exit conditions,SL and TP, and to make optimization for the parameters. When I built the manual strategies that I used before I saw that the results were not what I expected. But when I optimized the strategies using EA studio I found the better parameters and I saw how I could improve these strategies.

      Hello Petko,

      Yes, to pay developers to automate your strategies is really awful. I have a very small experience with that but I really don’t want to go there again:-)

      So thank you for all your work and that you shared the good experience with EA studio and FSB pro in your trading courses, anyway I wouldn’t find it.

      Petko, everyone who tested EA Studio should appreciate it, the generated EAs just give profits.

      I am on 9 consecutive profitable months now. Before trading manually it was hard to get on profit at the end of the month…

      Of course, it is not only about generating of course, but with stable risk money management, strict control of the Demo and the Live, and all the other tips from you, it works!

    • #10181

      Glad to hear that, Jordan! Keep up the great work!

      That is why diversification with many EAs is needed. If you look at the statistic of a single Expert Advisor, you will see that there are always losing months. But when you combine many in one account, you can actually reach to consecutive profitable months, just as you did.

      I use the automated trading software EA Studio for 5 months now, and just now I have a better idea about it, and I can share what I experienced.

      First, it took me a long time as I am working fulltime(hope soon to depend on the trading only).

      I watched all of the courses from Mr Petko Aleakdnrov, and they are long. All in all about 50-55 hours of lectures. Don’t get me wrong, they are long but very educational and engaging. So it took me about 3 months to watch them after work.

      Since the beginning of 2019, I started with a small live account where I test Expert Advisors with EA Studio with 0.01 lots.

      In January I did +1189 pips. In February i did +1790 pips.

      I am happy with the results because I never did such results before. Like most of the traders here, before I was losing money with manual trading.

      It took me time, but I am satisfied with the results, I feel confident(not over-confident, I just control the EAs in my portfolio with strict performance criteria).

      Success to all!

    • #10330

      Well done, Bart! I like testing with 0.01 on live account the new Expert Advisors I create. This is the most realistic way of testing Expert Advisors.

      Now the most important thing for you is to build a stable risk money management system, so you will not be taking huge risks.

      Keep up the work!

      Hello traders,

      I recently joined the academy, took some of the courses, and now the software EA Studio. I am very happy with what I learn because for 2 years I was just loosing with some manual strategies, testing, small live accounts. One day I woke up and said to my self: Start looking for professional education because you lose!

      Then I found the website, read a lot in the forum, the blog, and really liked what I saw.

      Now I still learn but I hope soon to have a nice portfolio of Expert Advisors.

      Mr, Petko, please, do not stop recording! It is so useful and inspiring!

    • #10457

      Hey Deniza,

      I am glad to hear that you realized education is necessary for trading. Many people never come to this, and they keep loosing, until one day they give up and say: It is the market fault!

      Take the loses as a first step that taught you trading is not easy and made you realize you need to study.

      I believe everyone makes some losses at the beginning. The important is not to make it too dramatic, and to get crazy.


    • #10600

      This is just because people believe they know how to trade from the first day without taking a single class, and after some losses, they realize that it is not exactly like that. I am not talking about all the people, but I can say above 90%…

      I want to share my opinion on the automated trading software EA Studio as well.

      Positive side:

      • it generates strategies based on the criteria we want – fantastic
      • it exports the strategies with a single click – fantastic
      • has the robustness tools, which is not possible in manual trading
      • portfolio expert advisors are available – I haven’t seen that with any other strategy builder
      • detailed statistics for the strategy

      Negative side:

      • only the Meta Trader indicators are available(recently some others were added, I hope they will be more)
      • I can not use LTF indicators like in Forex Strategy Builder Pro

      but I am quite happy with the EA Studio, it worths the money for the license because after that I can do really a lot – export unlimited number of EAs every day and test them.

      Hello Shamasa,

      Great you pointed the some of the specifications in EA Studio.

      Actually, the first time it was released, it was a very simple online generator, but with the time many features were added. The good thing is that Mr. Popov does not stop to improve it and update it. I am sure many more features will be added with the time.

      Yes, when I took the EA Studio it had fewer features. There were no portfolio experts, walk forward and some other great statistics that are available now. I hope more things will be added but even now it is awesome software.

    • #10992

      Hey Bob. Glad you like the software. it took me quite a long time to choose which strategy builder to choose but I am happy with the choice. Glad the students like it too!


    • #10993

      Hey Deniza,

      yes the EA Studio strategy builder is being updated all the time. This is very useful and gives a lot of value to the license.

      same with me. I liked the EA Studio the way it was at the beginning, now I love it πŸ™‚ And I am sure these guys will improve it more and more.

    • #11171

      Of course. Now they develop the educational section at EA Studio. If you have noticed, there is an educational cap on the bar where you can read more about each feature:

      When you click on each feature, the information change. Also, videos will be recorded.

      I just saw the new updates in EA Studio. Actually, the best thing I can see now is that with the lifetime license we get all future updates for free.

      Most software needs to be paid again or to buy the new version on a lower price.

    • #12178

      Hello Haliffa,

      yes, this is one of the things I liked the most at the beginning when I was choosing which software to work with. I saw they update it constantly, and I am happy they keep on doing so.

      Hello all,

      I have been using EA Studio for some time now and here is what I think:

      It has some great features as the Reactor, the Monte Carlo, Walk Forward and all statistics. But it was really hard for me to learn it all. I am not a person that is lazy but I was expecting that by having the one click to export the strategy makes it all easy. The thing is that there is a long way to go before reaching to that point πŸ™‚

      Anyway, now when I know what I am doing is easy and I really enjoy it. But it takes time and a huge desire to learn is needed!

    • #12281

      Hello Sabastian,

      Thanks for sharing your experience. Well, I never said it is easy πŸ™‚ It really takes some time and it really depends on the experience.

      But you are right, once you are used with it, it is easy.

      What I took EA Studio I was excited about it that I did not sleep for 36 hours to generate, export and backtest EAs. It was crazy. πŸ™‚

      Today I am organized with it – I run the reactor all the time with the maximum criteria I succeeded to soak up the best EAs.

    • #12354
      User AvatarViolet

      I am trying to organize with it as well. I run 3 Reactors before going to work, and another 3 before sleep. Now I have a bit harder time to filter the strategies and decide which ones to use.

      But I am happy that I have strategies. Before getting to know EA Studio I was struggling a lot to find a single strategy that works. Now I have nearly 100 on my Demo. πŸ™‚

    • #12366

      Hello Violet,

      try to experiment as much as you can. Use different filters all the time, put it all in excel table and compare the results. This way you will find what fits best to your trading style. But do not stop to test. Even you find your method, keep on looking for a better method.

      And yes, the automated trading software EA Studio solves the biggest problem – finding strategies.

      User AvatarRoman

      @Violet – He means use Excel a microsoft product that you can use to keep track of different data. I use it to keep track of when i generated EA’s for which currency, and when i put it on demo to see how active it is.

      I will start doing that. I believe it will give me a better and organized work. Do not know from where to start, but I will just start typing in what I do daily with the Generator and the Acceptance criteria.

    • #12491

      Hey Van,

      yes, just start entering the values you use in the acceptance criteria, write the currency pairs and the time frames. The idea is to compare the results. See which methods will work better for you.

      User Avatarr0berdson

      Dear traders, I would like to say thanks to Petko, and his team. This is my first post in the Forum and was silent for a few months because I was skeptical to EA Studio.

      I took the license in January, and in March I ended with 43% profit of 1k account. April was 23% and May so far is at 33%. I am more than happy with these results, but I would not be able to accomplish that without the help of Petko in 1:1 classes and all his courses.

      Now I will be concentrated on improving the Generator settings and the Acceptance criteria.

      Hello Roberdson,

      your experience is very motivational. I currently test the EAs from a few courses and I am on the trial period of EA Studio. All looks great and it is nice to see that it works on a longer term as well. I have booked a class with Petko for next week, and I am quite excited about it.

      Kind regards,

    • #12610
      User AvatarRoman

      @Violet- I track as follows TimeFrame-Magic #- Date placed on Demo. So it would look like this: H1-03870864-Demo-02/05/19 and then this would go under the column assigned to the pair GBPJPY. This is actually a strategy I put live last month on GJ and is the top performing strategy I’ve generated to date. Using Excel like this also helps when I’ve changed my generator settings I highlight the first EA in the batch to track the performance, and note what settings I used on that date to refer back to if successful.

      @Rob- Welcome!

    • #12615

      Hey Roman, thanks for sharing how you use excel.

      This is very useful because we trade with many EAs and if we do not do something like that we will lose the road.

      Hello all,

      My name is Simone, and recently I took the zoptimal Pack with EA Studio license and FSB Pro license. It turns out that I did not see all of the tools available when I used the trial period. For example, I did not see there is a Reactor. This tool really made my day happy because I realize just now that all is automatically generated and the strategies go over the robustness tests too.

      I am glad being in the Forum, and I am sure I will have some questions.

    • #12910
      User AvatarThapelo

      Hello Simone,

      welcome to the forum! Yes the Reactor is great tool, I use it every single day. If you succeed to make a plan and organize your day in a way that you can run it constantly will be the best. For example, what I learnt from the more experienced traders here, I run the Reactor before work for 500 min and then I run it one more time after work for another 600 min.

      This was the program works for you when you are not on the computer.

      and I run always 3 reactors simultaneously on my computer.

    • #13080
      User AvatarAndi

      Hi Simone, Welcome! Thapelo gave you the best piece of advice – organize your time and take the maximum of EA Studio.

      At the beginning I was doing that only during the weekend, I succeeded to create some nice EAs, but when I started running the reactor daily, I got much more profitable with more stable results.

      Feel free to ask questions. The Forum is the best place to learn.

    • #13297
      User Avatartraderbsgold

      Hey guys,

      thank you so much for the pieces of advice. They are precious to me. I was out of town for a business trip but now I am back and I will put a lot of energy into EA Studio, and when used with it, I will start using FSB Pro.

      I will try now to run the Reactor in the morning on 3 different tabs, and the same at the evening after work.

      I have already about 20 EAs on Demo, and I am very happy with the results they do.

    • #13340

      Hi Simone,

      the guys gave you a good idea from where you should start. I would also suggest you focus on EA Studio first, and then on FSB Pro. This way you will get easier with FSB pro too. But do not leave it behind. Great EAs could be created with FSB Pro.

    • #14305
      User AvatarHaliffa

      I started first with FSB Pro because this time EA Studio was still not available. However, it was really easy to get used with EA Studio after that. It has great features even you are a beginner.

      Simone, for sure you will learn from a lot from both programs

    • #14777

      Haliffa is correct, if you learn FSB Pro first, EA Studio will be much easier. But if you are a beginner you better start with EA Studio. And yes, the programs really teach you to trade, because they will show you what are the profitable strategies. And you will find that many strategies that you were using manually are losing, or at least they need to be changed.

      User AvatarThapelo

      Hi Centcel,

      It depends really. If I have enough strategies from the asset, I go to the next one or to another time frame with the same asset. When you find the good acceptance criteria for your data, you will have enough strategies every time you run the reactor.

    • #15488
      User AvatarIan Bibian

      The more you run the reactor, the more strategies you will get. That’s it. EA Studio changed my life. But of course, it took me time to organize my trading, the MetaTrader platforms, 2 computers, and 1 laptop. But I wouldn’t do it without the software for sure..

      User Avatardeenslavi

      Hello all,

      My name is Slavi, and I joined the academy a few months ago. I want to say that having EA Studio is one of the best purchases I have done in the last years. I am still on it, and I hope next month I will start learning more the FSB Pro.

      So far I have tested over 30 Robots from the market place with these fancy names, I have spent over $2k and my results were really frustrating. In the end, I decided to take the automated trading software EA Studio even I was skeptical about it. Now, I do not regret even a single day.

      However, I have a few questions:

      1. When exporting Portfolio Expert Advisors why there is no option for MT5?

      2. What is the difference between Walk Forward Optimization and Full Data optimization?

      Thanks indeed!

    • #15855
      User AvatarHaliffa

      Welcome to the forum DeenSlavi!

      You are absolutely right that EA Studio is an awesome product. It will improve your trading by 100%.

      1. The Portfolio eAs are only for MT4. Why? Because MT5 does not allow hedging with most of the regulated brokers.

      2. In Full data optimization, you are using the complete Historical data you have. With the Walk forward you have the option to use OOS. This stand for Out of Sample. If you select 20%, that would mean that you are using 80% to optimize and the rest 20% will be simulated trading. This way you can see how the strategy performed as you traded it.

      Guys, I can not imagine my trading without EA Studio…I just saw this topic again and I often read what people say in here but the truth is that once you get used with the strategy builder you really can not do it another way. πŸ™‚ I do not see an alternative at all.

      Before when trading manually I was so tense in my day and now I am so relaxed, the EAs do it all, I just think new methods how to generate better and better EAs.

      I am very glad I met Petko and learned about EA Studio from him.

    • #17314
      User AvatarHaliffa

      Dommech is pretty correct. With EA Studio we do not think anymore about the strategies really. It is all about money management and the way you will use the strategies and the EAs.

      Before it was so hard for me to find a single strategy, now with EA Studio(I use it above 1 year now) I feel I am on the next level. Actually making profits πŸ™‚

      I see that there are the reset buttons now at every page in EA Studio. Much comfortable when I want to restart the settings!

      I see the program becomes “intuitive”. Normally the people do not notice it, but in programming that is a huge thing. It means the software improves in a way so the users can get used with it faster. The structure is very good, and I am sure now the traders get used with EA Studio faster. Also, the new free videos from Petko are awesome. I wish I had those when I started πŸ™‚

      User Avatarfxtalant


      I am new with the EA Studio and I am pretty surprised with what I see especially when backtesting Forex strategies. The free videos from Petko helped me a lot to get started.

      I have been trading for many years manually and it was taking me a lot of time to test strategies. After that with different parameters, adding indicators and most of the time it was lost time.

      I really like the editor in EA Studio. It is fascinating when I put indicators, change parameters and see the outcome at the moment. That would have saved me years.

    • #21377

      You describe just how I was in the beginning πŸ™‚

      If you are just starting with EA Studio you will be surprised with many more things with that software.

      When you have an Expert Advisor and you backtest Forex strategies with it, it is really nice, you see the results. But you do not get the bigger picture. With the editor in EA Studio you see every change you make and how it impacts the strategy. Let’s say you change the SL from 50 to 60 pips and one click you see the backtest, the Output with different parameters as Profit Factor, Max Consecutive losses, and many others. You can not really see that in MetaTrader…

      Backtesting Forex strategies has really improved and this software gives so many opportunities.

    • #21696
      User AvatarSharapova Sisi

      I have seen in some places that people say backtesting Forex strategies is useless because it does not guarantee future performance. Well, this is true, and everyone knows that there is no guarantee for future trading, but at least we have something, right?

      If one uses manual trading and does not have an Expert Advisor how he would know the performance of the strategy? Not possible. It is not possible to backtest looking at the chart. I know many try to do that but they are not familiar with the repainting factor.

      HavingΒ  Expert Advisors is the only reliable way we can do backtesting Forex Strategies and especially with EA Studio we can see so many details:


    • #21802

      Hello Sharapova!

      Very good post here. You are very correct that with manual trading we can not have such statistics for any strategy. Simply because we can not execute the trades from Monday to Friday without a miss. Or even one trade for 8 hours and hires another 2 to cover the other 16 hours. Imagine what would be 3 people trading for 1 strategy, or maximum 2-3 if they can do it simultaneously. And I know there are people doing that…

      Keep in mind that there are very good manual traders but they do not know actually there are Expert Advisors. Because they are so concentrated in their manual trading, no time to look for something new or an easier way to do the trading..

    • #21876
      User AvatarCone D

      Hey Petko,

      I am the perfect example of what you described. πŸ™‚

      If you remember when I first met you and we had the 1:1 class I told you my story. Here it is for the others:

      I was trading professionally with a couple of strategies. I can say 3 that were bringing my profits(not so constantly) but it was enough to cover the monthly expenses. Backtesting Forex strategies manually is nearly impossible as Petko says. It takes so so so much time. I was staying around 12 hours every day in front of the screens and at one moment I realized it is useless to do it because I do not have a life… this is why I started looking for algorithmic trading without programming and I found Forex Academy and Petko’s courses.

      I tried as well hiring a person with some basic knowledge but saw that he will need long long time to do the trading for me… so do not waste time and money with that.

      Now my life is totally different. I use the Expert Advisors from EA Studio. I spent about 2-3 hours a day to generate new strategies, place on demo and manage a Demo and 2 live accounts. Backtesting Forex strategies with EA Studio and FSB Pro is just a pleasure compared to do it manually. And it is precise! I have a lot of time for everything else…started a second business of my own with paintings..

      User AvatarThapelo

      Today I want to say a huge THANK YOU to Forex Academy team and Forex Software,

      Petko and his team are so responsive on the email and the forum. I doubt at the beginning before taking the Optimal Pack that ones I take it, they will not be so responsive, but just the opposite. I get answers to every question, Skype call if it is needed, and they help w lot if I am stuck with backtesting Forex strategies or something else.

      I will not talk about the value of the courses, I am sure everyone who took a course knows how valuable are they. Getting updates every month for free is something you can not really find anywhere else.

      On the other side Forex Software keep updating EA Studio all the time. Since I got the license there were some awesome uptdates, and R century we go the Normslizer. This is a tool I couldn’t fine in any other Forex software. It does not only improve the backtesting Forex strategies process but makes the strategies faster, simpler and more profitable. I really do not know how these guys invent all of that but it is just fantastic.

      thanks guys, you are pros

      EA Studio has been great for me during the last year. There is so much written in here but I want to point out a few things:

      1. I spent couple of thousands for ready EAs from the MQL5 market that never worked well. And now I make daily better strategies.

      2. The system from Petko that allows me trading with 100s of EAs at the same time is just impossible without the EA Studio

      3. Backtesting Forex strategies has never been easier and faster. I love the fact that I am not doing it on MetaTrader any more πŸ™‚

      Hi Petko,

      I saw some changes in the Generator in EA Studio:

      1. The graph shows the new strategies, and the old ones disappear in 5 seconds

      2. There is a change in the Backtest output. Does it show the difference with the previously generated strategy?

      Is there a change in the work of the generator is that is just a visual update on how the generator improves every new strategy?

      User Avatarjohnbrown7

      Hello Andi,

      Yes, it is just a visual update. I had 1:1 class with Petko yesterday, which was great by the way.

      So he explained that this is just for the traders to see how the new strategy is different from the previous one generated. It stays 5 sec and it disappears. But the one that disappears remains in the collection. It disappears just from the graph.

      Also, there is the could change the Backtest Output which shows the different parameters. Same with the Optimzer:

    • #53717

      Yep, exactly guys! It is just a visual presentation of how the generator works and what are the differences between the strategies.

      EA Studio gets better and better. With the Premium data, I feel like the last missing part is placed in the puzzle.

      It’s really the best strategy builder out there!

      Automated trading has always been a dream for me and it looked impossible since I can’t do any programming and I do not have enough capital to hire good developers.

      Using EA Studio for over 6 months now I feel my dream comes true. The last 3 months were profitable for me (Oct just 8%).

      EA Studio is super easy to use, but of course I did it all because I watched nearly all the courses from Petko πŸ™‚

      Hello all,

      I wanted to share how happy I am with EA Studio and how much I learned from it.

      I have programming skills a bit, but before using the software I didn’t really understand how the EAs work. I learned a lot from the code of the EAs as well.

      Thanks to Petko, Ilan, Desi, and the whole team for making great courses!

      Hi, I am new to EA Studio. Is it possible to use custom indicators in the EA Studio like ‘pivot points’?

    • #76824

      Hey Treleonbey,

      No in EA Studio you can not use custom indicators.

      Here is a topic where I explained why is that:

      Andi, which Broker do you use with the Premium Data?

      I use normally the Metatrader-Demo data history with JFD. The Backtesting in MT4 is exactly the same one from EA Studio.

      Today I asked Mr. Popov about the future of Metatrader-Demo and he told me that in one month the Metatrader-Demo will not be available anymore. Now, I’m searching the perfect Broker for the Premium Data. I have the feeling that the Premium Data is not from Dukascopy because are some differences. Please be so kind and tell us also the Broker which fits Premium Data.

      Hello Mentosan,

      You can use the premium data with any broker that has low spreads and commissions.

      Please, watch the video where I show how to fit the Premium data with the symbol settings from the broker:

      <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Suggestion/Enhancement for EA Studio:</span>

      1. While working in the Browser with EA Studio; if we can toggle between full screen and normal screen – Look and feel will be good!

      Thanks & Regards

      Hey Vijai,

      Glad to hear from you. Welcome to the Forum!

      Well…it doesn’t work because you have checked everything in the Reactor. It is like you are cooking and you put everything you have in the fridge and…the result wouldn’t be nice, right? πŸ™‚

      We include 1 or 2 maximum. For example, just the walk Forward, or the Monte Carlo. Or both together.

      Hi, I am new to EA Studio, and am absolutely blown away by this tool. I used to pay a developer 2-300 Euros per EA, wait a week for it to be written and then hope for the best that the back testing might match up to some minimal manual testing. Now I can generate hundreds of EAs in a matter of minutes. I have no idea how long it took to code and build, but I am so glad I found it. Amazing work, I haven’t had any serious results yet, but some early test accounts are showing encouraging gains. Thanks guys

    • #85456

      Hey Steve,

      Glad to hear that! I know exactly what you mean because I experienced it. Actually, today Mr. Popov (the main developer) is celebrating exactly 20 years since he started working on the backtest and the generator (at that time, there was no backtest in MetaTrader).

      So yes, it is a lot of work done, but the result is an amazing piece of software.

      Hey guys,

      Am I getting crazy or EA Studio got much faster when generating the EAs?

      I also see some updates which I love. Happy to see that they never stopped working on it…

    • #101328

      Hi Ivone,

      Yep, a lot of improvements on EA Studio, and you are not getting crazy. Many of the updates are in the code so we do not ”see” them.

      I know for plenty more coming up, but I will let it be a surprise. πŸ™‚

    • #110341

      I wanted to ask the community if it is happy with the free course on EA Studio? I am planning to record a new one, but I would be happy to know what is missing in the current course.
