Tioga is a trading solution that can be found on MQL5. The robot has a simple presentation. The dev doesn’t provide us with all required information about the system and what we have to expect from it when running on our account.
Is this robot a viable option?
We don’t think so. The growing chart doesn’t look smooth. It means that the system can lose much after the rough market moves.

Tioga is a trading advisor that has been working on a demo account for twelve weeks only. The system places insanely deep SL levels that force the account to lose much. We don’t know if the developer minds about changing them to more friendly levels to protect us from deep drawdowns.
