A few backtests are present for the ATS on the MQL5 site. Here is one of the strategy tester reports:
From the strategy tests, we find that the test done from 2003 to 2021 had generated a net profit of 10268484.33 for a total of 8644 trades. The profit factor was 3.82 and profitability was 77%. A drawdown of 26.72% was present. From the high drawdown, we suspect a risky strategy was used.
What about Hippo Trader Pro real trading results?
A demo EUR account using the IC Markets broker and the leverage of 1:500 on the MT4 platform is present for this FX EA. Screenshots of the trading results verified by the myfxbook site are shown below:
From the trading stats, we can see the account has suffered a total loss of 25.53% and an absolute loss of 25.51%. The daily and monthly losses are 0.19% and 5.49%, respectively. A drawdown of 52.17% is present for the account. For a deposit of $10000, the profitability is 64% and the profit factor value is 0.72.
The system uses varying lot sizes ranging from 0.07 up to 1.20. The losses show a poor performance while the high drawdown and the big lot sizes indicate a high-risk strategy. Further, comparing the backtests with real trading stats we can see that the drawdown is higher in both results indicating a risky approach.
We could not find user reviews for this FX EA on reputed third-party sites like FPA, Trustpilot, etc. Although there are 12 reviews with a rating of 4.67/5 on the MQL5 site we cannot trust them. This is because the site promotes the product and hence there is a high chance of the feedback being manipulated.
