Fx Splitter is a basket trading robot. It places individual trades at fixed intervals of time. When the next time slot occurs, Fx Splitter will place a new trade, or close an existing trade, or do both, or do nothing, according to the in-build trading algorithm and the current market conditions. Fx Splitter is a martingale trader. So, as the number of trades in the basket grows, new trades will be opened with the increasingly larger lot size. When the net profit of the basket reaches the given take profit level, the whole basket is closed, and the new one is started.

Fx Splitter EA Back Testing
The Fx Splitter website has a large amount of back tests published and has also loaded them into MyFxBook so you
can give them a more in depth analysis. The modelling quality is 99% which means that real tick data was used during
back testing. Interestingly the spread used in the back tests is not shown, I would have preferred this information to
have been included and preferably real variable spreads used. There is simply too many back test results to include in
this review but you can see an example below and view them all on the Fx Splitter website.
