Support - FAQs

  • What is Auto Forex Direct? Simply put, we provide "Automated Trading Signals", sometimes known as Signals, EA - Expert Advisors, or a Trading Robot. Once you have an account with a Forex Broker you can either learn how to trade (which can be quite complex and stressful) and place trades manually yourself, or use our system which links to your own Broker account to trade for you.
  • How does it work? Auto Forex Direct constantly monitors the (FX) Foreign Exchange market looking for the best trading opportunities. Looking for when to "Buy" or "Sell" a particular currency against another. When it spots an opportunity, it will send a "Buy" or "Sell" instruction (Signal) to your Broker account and place the trade for you. It will then watch for the best time to close that trade. Everything is automated, you don’t have to do anything.
  • What is Forex trading? Foreign Exchange (Also known as Forex or FX) is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another. The Forex Market is the largest financial market in the world, with a volume of $5 trillion traded daily, which is more than three times the aggregate amount of the US Equity and Treasury markets combined. Unlike other financial markets, the Forex Market has no physical location or central exchange – it operates through an electronic network of banks, corporations and individuals trading one currency for another. This lack of physical exchange enables the Forex Market to operate on a 24 hour/5 days-a-week basis. Anyone can trade Forex, but typical traders include governments, banks, currency speculators, corporations and other financial institutions. Although not all are involved for financial gain, this is what attracts many traders to the market.
  • Is this like an Investment Fund? Absolutely not, unlike an Investment Fund we never touch or have access to your money. We simply provide Automated Trading Signals to use with your own FCA regulated Forex Broker compatible with the cTrader software platform. Click here for a full list of compatible and recommended Brokers.
  • Is there a fee for using Auto Forex Direct? We recommend you try it risk free on your Broker’s demo account to make sure you are 100% happy before placing Live (real money) trades. Only when you’re satisfied Auto Forex Direct is for you and you are ready to start trading and enjoying the rewards from Live trading (with real funds), you will be required to pay a small monthly subscription of just £49* GBP.

    *Limited time offer.
  • Will my the monthly returns be compounded? Yes. Assuming you do not withdraw your earnings they will be added to your account balance as and when earned. The system then detects your new balance and places larger lot sizes per trade accordingly, therefore compounding your earnings. For example, on a £10,000 account, if you earned 10% in month one (£1,000) your new balance would be £11,000. Therefore 10% of this new balance for the following month would equate to £1,100 creating a new balance of £12,100 and so on.
  • Which brokers do you recommend and why? There are many Forex Brokers available online, and the majority are very good. However, Auto Forex Direct has been written to be compatible with the popular cTrader platform. Therefore, it is imperative your Broker provides the cTrader platform. Secondly, not all Brokers are the same when it comes to the commissions they charge, that is why we recommend ones which have a low or 0% commission of their buy and sell spread. It is also important you ensure your Broker is regulated. Our favourite Broker is ICMarkets, however click here for a full list of compatible and recommended Brokers.
  • How do I link my Auto Forex Direct subscription to my cTrader Broker account? For full instructions on how to do this, please click here.
  • Can I be notified each time a trade is opened or closed? Yes, we use the Telegram messaging app to send you real-time notifications. Click here to set this up.
  • What is the minimum amount of funds I need to trade? Auto Forex Direct detects the amount of funds (Equity) in your Broker account and places trades accordingly, for example, it won't place certain trades if it detects you don't have the funds to trade them effectively. The minimum you need in your Broker account is £1000 GBP, however we would recommend £5000 GBP or more for optimum trades to be placed, and higher percentage returns.
  • Can I see your trading history? Yes, we have recently set up a Demo account on MyFXBook so that you can see the results of our Automated Signals. We do not publish our internal Live accounts due to confidentiality.
  • Can I Pause or Stop trades being placed? Absolutely, Auto Forex Direct has been developed to make sure that you are always in control. Using the website features via your PC or Mobile Device you can easily set the Status to Auto Run, Pause, or Stop.

    Auto Run will open and close trades automatically as per our strategy.

    Pause will prevent new trades being placed but will continue to monitor and close trades as per our strategy.

    Stop will close ALL open trades and not place any new ones.
  • Can I place trades myself on the same broker account AFD is linked to? In theory yes, as you always have control of your own Broker account. However, we strongly recommend that you make a dedicated account for Auto Forex Direct to connect to as opening and closing your own trades could potentially confuse the system and result in errors being made.
  • Do I need to leave my PC on or have a virtual server? No, Auto Forex Direct links directly to your Broker's cTrader platform, meaning the connection is always in place regardless of whether you have your PC on or off.
  • What happens if I decide to cancel my subscription? You are free to cancel your subscription at any time. Should you choose to do so Auto Forex Direct will continue to open and close trades up until the last day of your subscription. After this date no new trades will be placed, but existing open trades will continue to be monitored and closed as per our trading strategy.
  • If this works as good as you say it does, why would you want to share it? We use Auto Forex Direct ourselves, but as a business we also recognise the value in allowing others to use it for a small fee. Top Hedge Funds have been using similar systems for years and will gladly take your money and charge you a high commission (sometimes more than 50%) for returning (in many cases) a much smaller profit.
  • No new trades have been added for a while, what's happening? Please check you have a balance of at least £1000 GBP in your broker account for our system to work.

    Providing you have an adequate balance then don't worry, be patient, this is totally normal. As tempting as it is to want to see lots of trades being added to your Broker account everyday, our system watches and waits to place the optimum trades which it believes will result in the maximum profit per trade with the lowest risk. This process can take days and in some instances no new trades may be placed for a week or more.

    You can see a our "Live System Statistics" showing current open trades and latest trades opened and closed at the bottom of our home page.

    Remember, it’s better to be patient and wait for the profitable trades, than have trades just for the sake of it.
