In the world of Forex trading, an expert advisor is a tool that tells when to place trades or even automatically initiates and executes trades according to preprogrammed instructions. With the help of automated trading systems, traders do not need to monitor the market searching for the best trade opportunity. Expert advisors do all the hard work for them. Robo expert advisor is one of the automatic trading software that excludes any human interference, thereby taking the ‘psychological element out of trading’. It promises to generate constant and ‘sky-rocket income 24/7.
The robot was created by a group of friends (who are they?) five years ago, who decided to put it on the market only in 2021. We neither know their names nor where their office is located. The one thing we know is that they are ‘software creators for MT4 & MT5 since 2016’. What are the other products they developed?
To get in touch with support traders need send an email to [email protected] There is also an online chat where traders can write their messages. For this, they have to enter their phone number (if they are from North America). In case they aren’t, they need to enter their valid email address.

On the Robo EA website, the developer has uploaded a video that shows the backtesting results of the robot being tested for 3 months! Really? It is ridiculous.

Trading Results of R0B0.1 Expert Advisor
Oddly, but the vendor failed to provide live trading results of Robo.1 expert advisor. This sort of information is highly important for every trader and although it is good that the vendor shared backtesting results of his robot, we’d like to see its profitability and efficacy in the present days. Nobody is interested in investing in a system based on backtesting data alone. It is important to know how the system performs in the live market.
We’ve conducted an additional myfxbook.com research and found 2 trading accounts of Robo.1 EA. One of them was broken.

Wrapping up our Robo.1 expert advisor review, we cannot say this EA is a good choice for traders. Not now. Although the backtesting report looks impressive, we cannot say the same about the live trading performance of the robot. It is a scalper, but this information is not mentioned on the website of the developer. If the vendor does want to gain a reputation among Forex traders, he needs to provide more transparency in terms of his team, trading strategy, and live trading results of Robo.1 EA. Until it is not done, we cannot recommend this robot to the public.
