The maximum drawdown for the account was 21.54%. From the results, we can see that the profits are low and the drawdown is high revealing a risky approach.

Forex Enigma assures hassle-free and profitable trades with its innovative trading algorithm. Our analysis of this FX EA reveals several downsides that make it an unreliable system. To begin with, the trading approach is not explained properly. Other than mentioning the name of the approaches, there is no explanation of how they work. Although a verified live performance is shown, the broken link looks suspicious. Further, the low profits in real trading reveal an ineffective approach and poor performance. The lack of vendor transparency is another downside that makes this an untrustworthy EA.
