Do Forex Robots Work in All Market Conditions?

There are a lot of talk of Forex robot programs in foreign exchange circles. Basically, a Forex robot is a software which trades on your behalf in the Forex market automatically. This can save you a lot of time, effort, and help you make a great deal more money. This, of course, is only true if you use the right program.

Some Forex Robots work better than others. It the same as in any other area of life. Some products are good and some aren't. As long as you test the program you get on a demo account before starting to trade real money with it, you have a great degree of security.

But there's another common question about Forex robots and that is how well they work in all market conditions. The truth is that market conditions have an endless range so that there's no way to cover them all. Even the best trading method could not have predicted the wild fluctuations in world currency value the recent financial crisis brought with it.

There's no telling how a particular forex trading robot will operate in erratic market conditions, but I believe this isn't an important factor in deciding on whether or not to use one. The reason is that markets don't turn erratic every 2 days. They do so very rarely. Furthermore, you can't expect any forex tool, system, or method to work 100% of the time. It just doesn't happen. What you need is something that works most of the time.

Once you have a forex robot that works most of the time, you have a statistical advantage over the rest of the market and can expect to make more money in the long term because you'll be making more winning trades than losing ones.

Also, often you can know in advance when the market is likely to fluctuate madly and so you just take a week or 2 off from trading until things get back to normal. Hey, even you got to rest, right?
