Details regarding the trading strategy applied by Vortex Trader Pro have not been disclosed. According to the developer the EA trades based on volatility, trends as well as price action and uses a variety of indicators to verify trading signals.
Vortex Trader Pro does not provide a money management and can only trade a fixed lot size. On default settings the stop loss limit is 110 pips and the take profit limit is 20 pips. Depending on market conditions profitable trades can be closed by the EA before the take profit limit is reached while losing trades will remain open until the stop loss limit is hit. The EA opens up to two trades at the same time.
Based on the backtests, Vortex Trader Pro reaches a risk-reward-ratio of about 6:1 which - combined with a hit ratio of about 90% - can be considered an acceptable value. However, and despite the relatively slow trading frequency the medium and high risk settings which are provided by the developer should be avoided.
A Monte-Carlo-Simulation, based on backtests (2009-2014), with a lot size of 0.10, a starting balance of EUR 1,000 and 100,000 iterations, shows the following results regarding expected profits, expected drawdowns and the derived value at risk. Here the value at risk is expressed as the drawdown which is expected with a probability of 95% and 99% respectively not to be exceeded.
