Avoid the risks of automated trading and extend your opportunity horizon
Most traders understand the risks of automated trading, and the substantial losses or unrealized profits that can be incurred when a system is left unsupervised. They also know that nothing could be more counterproductive than to sit in front of a computer screen for hours, waiting for trading signals; or anything more stressful than to monitor open positions with the ever present temptation to override the automated system, especially, when the market appears to be moving against you.
Does automated trading make it easier to trade financial markets?
Sadly, reality could not be further from the truth. Traders learn through bitter experience that automated trading has many pitfalls, including the risk of substantial losses and / or unrealized profits when a trading system is left unsupervised. Technical pitfalls include network failures, power failures, computer hardware failures, execution platform failures, unfilled orders, excessive slippage, automated trading strategy failures or glitches and operating system failures. Psychological pitfalls, including the powerful temptation to discretionary trade and / or override the automated strategy; especially, when the market appears to be moving against you. Let us not forget the added pressure of holding positions overnight, or at any other time you cannot be present to supervise them.
It follows that, in due diligence, many traders spend countless unproductive hours in front of their trading screens waiting for the automated system to generate trading signals. Much worse, however, there are many who leave the system unsupervised and vulnerable to the risks mentioned above. All things considered, for most traders, the scope of opportunity is limited to the relative convenience of local markets and time zones. But it does not have to be like that!
