FXCipher is a trading advisor that has a simple and not quite informative presentation. The developers claimed that “One of them has been optimized since 2010 and is highly reliable. The other one has been optimized since 2017, which helped to increase the profitability of the robot.” Let’s see what the differences between versions are.
The presentation is short, and it was a challenge for us to get everything together.

- The main pairs to trade are GBPUSD, EURJPY, AUDUSD, USDCAD, EURUSD.
- “The EA has a special Preset selection mode. That means that after running the EA, you will be able to choose whether to use the mode with settings that have been optimized since 2010 and have a very high-reliability rate, or use the Preset with settings optimized since 2017, which provide higher profitability and require a lower initial deposit.”
