Zenith is a new EA that was launched in March 2021, and has been activated seven times. The vendor states that its code is too big and hence cannot be self- learning like her other product, – HumbleBee EA. The robot is presented in the MQL5 website, and here, a list of all the input parameters it uses is provided. According to the vendor, the robot begins working from Monday at 12PM, and is sold 23 times monthly. We noted that the presentation of the EA is too brief.
Olena Skrynnik is the developer behind Zenith. However, we could not find any background information about her or even credentials. It is also not clear if she developed the EA alone or if other developers were involved. Based on her profile on the MQL5 website, Olena has other automated systems including Humblebee, Pepper, and TradeFields.

Zenith EA Trading Strategy Tests
The vendor states that the EA is based on an artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm. This is an optimization method that replicates the scavenging behavior of honey bees. Just like a bee colony which has 3 kinds of bees that perform different roles, the algorithm has various parts that carry out different tasks. These tasks include monitoring patterns, studying the graph to spot problems, preparing the network on received data, breaking down, and categorizing the patterns. This information is too vague and we still cannot tell the type of trading scheme the EA uses.

Regrettably, we cannot rely on these results, because they have not been verified by third party sites such as FXBlue, Myfxbook, or FXStat.
The account conducted 178 trades. It achieved win-rates of 47.19% and 52.81% for longs and shorts respectively. These results are very poor as they indicate that the profitability rate of the account is low. The profit factor is 5.52 and the monthly growth is 12.49%.
We could not find user reviews for the EA on the popular review websites like Forex Peace Army, Trustpilot and Quora. However, there are several user testimonials on the MQL5 website that praise the EA. These reviews are unreliable as we cannot determine their credibility.
