Night Hawk is a robot with risky strategies on the board. Using Martingale on Grid on the EA with 75% of the win-rate is a bad decision. Several months were closed with losses. They were not huge, but only because of luck. The EA isn’t ready to be our key trading solution in 2021. We’d like you to keep checking its trading results because, now, the robot is far from being a safe and sound expert advisor.
