Evgeniy has developed an automated system for GBPCAD and his performance is steadily profitable for over 109 weeks, close 2 years. He managed to recover successfully all his periods of stagnations. He is using a real account and is fully verified.

His communication is moderate but he updates his social page when it's necessary. His main Trader account is "EvgenDoga". He has been trading for 109 weeks and has generated a 27% annualized Return on Investment (ROI) while the Maximum DD is 1.1k pips. The overall NME is currently very low at 227$.

Let's meet Evgeniy and see how he started his trading journey in ZuluTrade.

  • Tell us about your trading background and how you got started trading

I have started trading about 5-6 years ago. I have seen information on the Internet and join a group providing useful information about Forex. Initially, it was an idea to have some additional income.
It was a time of wins and losses. I was very careful from the very beginning; therefore, my ratio was about 50/50. I realized that 90% of EAs and strategies (doesn't matter if they are free or not) are unprofitable and it is really hard to find a good one. I would say that after strategy tester (if possible) and demo accounts any EA should be tested on the real one and monitored about a year. That is why a lot of systems show great results at first and lose one time.
Sometimes, after loses, I was ready to give up trading but over time interest takes place. The further the more interesting.
Nowadays I'm trying manual trading and searching for max riskless automated systems.

  • When did you first discover ZuluTrade? What was it about ZuluTrade that got your interest?

I found out about ZuluTrade in the mentioned above group a few months later as a way to publish signals. But I have published my first signal much later. Evgendoga signal is fully automated EA which had more than one-year profitable trading history by the publishing in ZuluTrade already. It showed itself as a low-risk profitable system for more than two years by today.
I like ZuluTrade as investors oriented system. It is very important for traders to have good results in their systems.

  • Give us the basic structure of your strategy

I have two strategies published on ZuluTrade. The first is a more interesting one. Its name is Evgendoga.
It is EA which trades in automated mode. Trading on GBPCAD pair at night time. There are two types of settings. One type of settings use average in its algorithm and shows more profit than the second type. The second one uses SL and TP and safer. The system requires a quite small min depo at $250.
The second strategy (Evgendoga2) similar to the first one. The difference is that it is based on another broker by investors’ requests. And few more pairs are used. A few weeks ago I have added one more fully automated strategy Evgendogac3t2. The account exists almost a year and shows quite good results. It is based on averaging but has small DD and uses SL and TP. These two strategies are managed together with the author of the EA.

  • What’s your trade management approach – taking profit and exits, trade size and account- level risk management?

Two first strategies open orders at night and exit depend on their settings, with EA logic or TP/SL.
The third strategy has opened orders almost always.
About risk management, I prefer to use systems with SL and small DD, not more than 20% of depo. But sometimes I make an exception to the rule if the system is worth it.

  • How can your investors get the best by your strategy?

Of course, it depends on the strategy. If we are talking about Evgendoga or Evgendoga2, the most important thing is to select a broker with max low spreads on cross pairs. The best way is to use the same as mine also because of slippage.

  • How do you feel when you have a good and a bad trade? How are you dealing with this?

Of course, in the case of profit, I feel satisfaction. When I lose, I realize that it is not possible to win always. Unfortunately, it is not possible. All trading is a series of losses and profits. The aim is the right percentage between them.

  • Finally, if you could give some advice for the aspiring traders out there, what would it be?

The bits of advice are:
- Always remember about money management, not to lose all your funds.
- Do not give up in case of loss. All traders lose money sometimes.
- Select EAs for trading carefully.
- Use VPS services in case of EAs.
- There are many EAs which have profit on demo accounts only!
