Red Hawk is a trend-based trading robot that scalps little profits on the M5 time frame. Half-a-year trading results showed that the robot makes mediocre monthly gains. Anyway, they are stable and predictable.
The developer mentioned that there are no Grid or Martingale strategies on the board. He has 17 signals and 20 products in the portfolio. His rate is over 30,000 and this is much higher than other MQL5 developers have.
Alas, the robot is delivered without a money-back-guarantee.
