Slow and steady continues to be the way with CTT – today was the biggest earner for a while with around .75% growth with another 2 trades currently ongoing.
All good though obviously and the more adventurous can up the risk settings if they prefer to try to attain the pre Christmas returns. I’m currently more than happy with the nice, steady returns. Having said that its still on course for a 10% monthly return which will make us a great amount of money in the next few years. 7
Nice start to February with the CTT EA – still at half risk levels but it has been mentioned that it is technically possible to increase the risk levels yourself in the back office of the account.
Today was a good day with just over half a percent gain for me so far – there were some issues with slippage for other members with some as big as 20 pips. When I checked mine I had positive slippage of around 10 pips so I came out ahead this time. Its swings and roundabouts with slippage though & next I might come out on the wrong side of it. Fact of life with Forex trading though.
Good day again with CTT EA- just short of 1% growth – nice to see it becoming more active and bodes well for the rest of the year.
Most common question I get asked is the obvious one re this EA – would you recommend it? The answer I’ve given to family & friends (who I’ve never recommended anything to before) is 100% yes – if you have £1000 you can invest then this is potentially a life changing opportunity. If its money you absolutely need then, obviously, no – but if its just more money gaining no interest in an account somewhere then it should be something you should look at.
Personally i’m still planning to grow the account until I’m able to take out my initial deposit. I’ve already taken out £1041 so just over 33% – made another £135 so far in January so need about another £1700.
Another .5% gained today which is totally in line with the expected growth at the moment – volatile day today with some big news announcements and further Brexit turmoil but the EA took 5 or 6 trades and made a profit in them all.

This was an announcement on Friday discussing the quiet period of trading we’re going through. Good to have this acknowledged and reassuring to have it confirmed as a short term thing & nice touch re the hosting fee.
Many people have questioned the level of trading activity.
January is predominantly a low volume trading month. This is because Market Makers, Banks, Institutions and Large Professional traders begin to re-enter the market having withdrawn positions at the end of 2018.
As we saw on Friday GBP activity increased and the EA trade conditions were met and we saw immediate trading activity.
The EA has not been altered in anyway and we will see increasing trade activity. However, as previously expressed the EA is designed for long-term investing not short-term high trade gambling.
Please note in anticipation of lower trade volume CTT have not charged the £15 hosting charge for January.
Close to .5% gain today for CTT EA to end the week with some more profit. No word on when the risk settings will change but its looking now like it wont be reviewed until the end of the month.
My total gain now is at 50.45% which is obviously great when you take into account that its only been trading my account for about 55 business days. Looking forward to the next 6 months, possibly back to full risk settings, to see some real growth again.
We’re still on half settings for the CTT EA – so its slow & steady at the moment but growth is growth and the EA is playing it safe in uncertain markets.
Yesterday was Martin Luther King day so was a holiday in the US which meant very few trades. Hopefully number of trades increases moving forward and would imagine settings will return to standard at the beginning of February at the latest
I personally made 90 pips today but there were connection issues this morning (which I believe were caused by server upgrades @ CTT’s end) which meant I missed out on this mornings trades for another 55 pips.
Settings are still at the 50% of standard level as they were before Christmas – which i’m ok with and may well be the case until the Brexit issue is more settled.
Apologies for the poor quality of the images showing my progress but that’s all the CTT site can produce at the moment. It does the job though.
Great start for 2019 – will try to find a nicer looking way to display the results but for the moment I’ve taken the balance back to £3000 and the pips gain is below. Think i’ll reset the % gain as well to zero
