Redshift Live Trading Account Review
We have a Redshift EA running on the real account.
The system executes deals on the real USD account with a 5% risk automatically. The broker is LMFX. It’s not quite known. It uses technical indicators data to spot trading opportunities on the MetaTrader 4 platform. The leverage is 1:250. The account has Verified Track Record and Trading Privileges Verified icons. It was created on February 01, 2021, and funded at $2,469.52. Since then, the absolute gain has become +16.7%. From the chart, it’s easy to notice that the system performs unpredictably. An average monthly gain is +6.68%. The maximum drawdown is 9.88%.
Redshift has traded 150 deals with – 958.9 pips. An average win is 14.76 pips when an average loss is -63.66 pips. The win rate is 87% for Longs and 91% for Shorts. An average trade length is a day. The Profit Factor is 1.73. It’s a good one for a trend system.
Two symbols still aren’t profitable. The most traded and most profitable symbol is USD/CAD with 40 deals and $196.47 of profit.
The system trades all day long, focusing on the high-impact news during Asian and American sessions.
Monday (38 deals) is the most traded day.
The expert advisor runs the account with acceptable risks to the balance.
We can see that some deals are profitable, much even closing after reaching SL levels. So, there’s a trailing stop loss feature.
We can even notice open deals floating on the market.
The robot works closing months with profits.
There’s still the last copy for $399 available. The next price should be $599.
Redshift costs $399 for a digital copy. We can follow a rental option to get it for a month for $348. The rental price is sky high compared with other similar products. We can demo download the system to test it on the MT4 terminal. The developer doesn’t support a deal with a refund policy.
Is Redshift Trading a scam?
Probably, it’s not. The system is far from running the charts smoothly and predictable. There are only two symbols that can make significant profits. The other three are useless to use. We can’t be sure that the system will be profitable in the future.
The presentation includes many negative feedback. It’s obvious that these posts were written when the system experienced losses.
