ManhaTTan Club - out of 7 signals in this group, this should be rated the lowest. Some of the existing subscribers are voicing concerns about the copying problems. The way how we see this - with ECN broker and lower spreads on exotic forex pairs (EURAUD/GBPAUD), copying this one should not be such a headache. Trades remain open for atleast 40 min, therefore, VPS is not a concern - it's all about Your broker's offered spreads. The signal performs great with regards to maintaining reasonable level of risks, although there are other competitors that offer greater rewards for the same DD levels.
Retracer 2 pair - we hate Alpari's accounts because of random nature of deposits - impossible to tell whether the author is manipulating with his drawdown levels. On top of that, most of the trades are being opened just after midnight, when some brokers are not functioning at all. Despite everything, if a potential subscriber can secure reasonable spread on EURUSD pair between 0:00 and 1:00, this is a great strategy to copy.
MaxProfit2018 - similarly to previous signal, this one has no problems to keep risks in check and it also tends to generate reasonable, yet, not perfect, growth for the chosen level of risks. The main concern about this one - information about past's DD is lacking; despite that, it is not such a big of a deal, as there is information about ~1300 closed positions when the account was already linked with MQl5 platform.
REITAK Night Fast Money Safe - out of all REITAK's trading signals, we like this one the most. Except for that 1 case when DD broke above 25%, the signal has managed to keep risks in check and produce substantial gains. We would advise to reduce the overall risk level by 1/3, establishing stability of this signal even further. Despite that, the start of this signal has been very solid thus far.
GutsOverFear - despite having great growth/DD ratios and limited risks, this one lacks significant history (both in time and amount of trades) to be placed any higher. The fact that the trading is fully-manual doesn't help here as well - one should be very concerned whether the author will be able to keep up with such strong start.
DgEkvalC - this signal has displayed amazing durability and ability to profit throughout different times. Having in mind all of that, September's performance was a struggle, not to say least. If we were to analyze 6m or 1y performance, this signal would be higher, but with regards to 1m and 3m performance, we cannot place it any higher. For now...
Eagle EyE Ultimate - FX Sumo did analyze this signal a bit deeper than some other it's peers due to its tremendous uprising in terms of subscribers. Obviously, an enormous reason for this increase was our positive review in the last update, after which the signal managed to jump from 0 to 24 subscribers within 2 weeks. Somehow, we feel co-responsive for the performance of the signal, thus, in this update we will brake down our view about this one in more detailed manner. Let's dive into this:
If You did spot in the legend of analyzed signals, this is the one, which DD is calculated, from our perspective, wrongly. This trading strategy does not fear to use SL function, and there is no problem with that fundamentally. Mathematically, it rises questions about the true DD of the signal.
MQL5 determines drawdown based on maximum of the 2 - either balance DD or equity DD. Equity DD is determined by the largest slip-up of the unclosed trades (floating losses), while balance DD is determined by the largest slip-up of the closed trades (fixed losses).
Let's have a look on Eagle's DDs:
Equity DD - below 5%;
