R Factor EA is a trading robot that scalps little profits trading on the M15 time frame. The developer hid detailed trading results so we don’t know about Grid and Martingale strategies on the board. We can’t be sure these two-year results are connected in any way to the robot that is just released. The pricing is high. The rent option was removed. There’s no money-back guarantee.
