We continue our article series on trading robots with another LeapFX product called Econ Power Trader. We have never seen such a lengthy presentation: 48 PC screen pages. We’ll try to go exclusively on its key points.
The presentation begins with a screaming headline promising us the golden mountains measured in hundreds and thousands of percent of benefits. The intro video is boring and not interesting. There were shown the text that the announcer describes, who we don’t see.
A little lower in the presentation, there are screenshots of the work of the program dated August 2018. They tell us nothing about that the robot worked with real money or on a demo account.
According to the presentation, the EA has got some brand-new futures like: “With a radical and innovative automated tool that we created that uses adaptive intelligent news trading technology, also known as AINTT, you can now easily navigate the treacherous and unexpected volatility from financial news and world events.”
Summing the strategy up we’d like to notice the most patterns work for opening several trades in a week when news shakes the market.
The robot is suggested for $297 for a year license and $497 for a lifetime one. The developers provide a 30-day money-back guarantee.

As for The Wave Scalper, there was any real or even demo Econ Power Trader’s account link. It’s another try of them to force us to trust them looking at the screenshots.
Mid trade results
The first EPT account is the demo account, with FXPRIMUS brokerage company on MetaTrader 4 platform.
