Neural Bot is a system that was released on March 26, 2021, on the MQL5 forum by Piotr Stepien. The system has got ten activations and 2916 demo downloads in total. The last update (1.30 version) was published on June 19, 2021.
We made a decision to take a look at it because of the many requests we have received in our mailbox. So, here it comes.
What is behind Neural Bot?
The developers didn’t prepare a great presentation to capture our attention. There’s a huge lack of minimum required intel:
- The system is a fully automatic trading solution that doesn’t require us to check it consistently.
- The only terminal to trade through is MetaTrader 5.
- There are Neural Network and Machine Learning calculations to decide when it’s time to open an order.
- The advisor is a low-frequency trading solution.
- We have to download settings apart from the advisor itself.
- Many clients simply cannot customize the robot right.
- The leverage level should be 1:500 or higher.
- The system can execute orders only on EURUSD.
- The advisor can be run on a PC or VPS service. It’s completely up to us.
- It monitors the market 24/5 looking for trading opportunities.
- It can update itself without our intervention.
- The advisor doesn’t use risky strategies to make more profits.
- The money-management system covers all orders with placing SL and TP levels.
- We may use leverage to balance calculations to predict margin usage.
- The developer would like us to use an IC Markets broker house.
- The system requires a broker to support a Hedge type of accounts.
- The robot can be updated for working with other cross pairs.
- We don’t know if an average person handles this.
- The package includes a user manual with proper details.
- It works automatically.
- The system trades with a low frequency.
- It allows us to work in any time frame. It’s weird because various time frames have different margin requirements.
- The minimum balance requirements are $300.
- The strategy details are not provided.
- It works with EURUSD on various time frames.
There’s a EUR/USD backtest report that was performed on the data between 2018 and 2021 years. The history quality was 100%. An initial deposit was set at $300. The total net profit has amounted to $2,215,481. The maximum drawdown has amounted to 19.70% ($316,353). The Profit Factor was 31.64. The recovery factor was 7.00. Neuro Bot has performed 1836 orders. The accuracy rate for Shorts was 100.00% (937 orders), when for Longs 99.56% (899 orders). So the directions were traded equally.
Neural Bot costs $600 for a single copy of a trading advisor. The pricing is insane. We have no idea why it costs twice more than other EUR/USD trading solutions. The offer 0include rental option available for $500 per year. We can download a free demo copy of the robot for checking the settings and execute a backtest.
