I should have figured that with with over 150,000 bucks in prize money to the top four or five winners, that they were not going to be selling the EA package for 25 bucks. forexbob nailed the price at 999.
forexbob also asked the question if you had a profitable EA would you be selling it? Funny he asked that because I've been pondering that very same question for some time and I don't have an answer just yet. There is a lot to be said for each man and woman to go through the trials by forex fires to reach the point were as protradermopar said today or yesterday, all of a sudden you see it, you can't explain it but you got it. This is where the real deal is made and can't ever be taken away. Lukx has been there too. I don't think anyone who has been there would take anything in the world for this special experience. I wouldn't take anything for my experiences and insights learning about some of the secrets of the BuyZone. jb
all this seems always to pop up 1st on russian servers.
well nothing wrong with someone selling his EA or scripts or get donated for his efforts.(thats not for the money, but like a puppy sold is better treated then a puppy given away)
I would even cooperate in building something which is shared in a little group, but just been a lazy programmer the latest time
But with selling an EA i don't think this will work by doing mass marketing and sell an EA to the masses which have not a clue about trading. It is said that the guys behind fapturbo sold some 60.000 copies, and now are going to bring dedicated chinese and spanish versions of their EA.
If such a large number of people are going to place the same order on the same time it will influence the market. and it's questionable of the profitability of the EA is then still there.
Further i am sure, TRO and others are able to write a profitable EA, but just don't want to (at least not in public). And that is good , they learn people to realize what they are doing wrong, and if it clicks you will be gratefull for the rest of your life, and be able to extract money from the market instead of funding it.
So best maybe just to ignore all, and just continue what you are doing (assuming you are profitable with it)
