ForexAutoPilot and ForexKiller are probably the biggest brand names in the automated forex trading system market. Both products are meant to help you make a profit out of the huge, lucrative market of currency trading, even without the knowledge a professional forex expert has. In this article I will compare some key points between the two products, in order to help you determine which of them suits you better.
- Mode of operation
Forex AutoPilot is a fully automatic forex trading robot. Not only does it decide what to trade – it can automatically issue the buy or sell order to your forex broker. In that respect, it can do the entire process for you, whether you’re out to lunch or asleep in bed.
Forex Killer does not issue automatic orders to forex brokers. It simply provides quick, ongoing analysis of the forex market and gives you recommendations. It is up to you to issue the orders to your forex broker. So you have some control over the process, and you give the final go – but it requires your intervention.
- Ease of installation
Forex AutoPilot has been getting some complaints about its installations process. Although the process s well covered in its users’ manual, it seems to be a consistent complaint and apparently the installation process is not straight-forward and smooth for some.
Forex Killer, to the best of my knowledge, does not get as many complaints about that.
- Credentials of creators
The creators of both Forex Autopilot and Forex Killer have extensive forex trading background.
Marcus Leary, the creator of Forex AutoPilot, is a senior forex trader by profession. He co-created Forex Autopilot with Steven Strauss, a mathematician who helped develop the mathematical formulas Forex AutoPilot uses.
Andreas Kirschberger, the creator of Forex Killer, is a former Deutche Bank forex advisor.
- Supported trading platforms
Forex Autopilot works on a single forex trading platform, Metatrader 4. While it is one of the most popular platforms out there, it is not supported by all forex brokers. You have to check with your forex broker whether he or she works with this platform or not.
Forex Killer works with every known trading platform, so in that respect it is more flexible. It is highly likely that your forex broker works with one or more of the platforms supported by Forex Killer (although it is always recommended to check).
Both Forex Auto Pilot and Forex Killer are highly acclaimed. They have gotten thousands of enthusiastic testimonials from users, and are considered world leaders in the automated forex trading software industry.
I hope this comparison helped you shed some light on both of these highly revered forex trading software products.
