  • I have tried different kinds of software in last one year. I lost my account balance with all of those crap (big scam actually)-usually in less then a day of trading . Now I feel fortunate enough that at last, I got this system named 'Mikes Auto Trader'>>(tr.im/mikeautotrader) . This is the only software that's ever worked for me. Right now I am happy with this.

  • I've tried loads of these products, and every single auto trader has cleaned me out. I have to admit, I've tried Google Trader system and had much more success, typically an 85% success rate daily on trades. If anyone wants free coaching on Google Trader go to http://po.st/googletrade and you'll see for yourself. I cannot recommend this service enough, everyone has been very helpful when I call. If you're serious about trading then this is the only option.
