Update: Well it only took a few days but FRWC Fusion 1.1a has wiped it’s $1000 account. It now holds the record for fastest account blow up for us! Stay away from this one guys!
Update (April 10th 2010): Looks like there is a new FRWC Fusion 1.2 available. I may try it out on a new account with lower risk settings to see how it goes.

FRWC HiRider Strategy
HiRider is a scalping EA for the EURUSD pair. The robot is a combination of 5 trading strategies which
can open maximum of 10 trades at any time. The first strategy uses 0.01 lots regardless of the MM
settings specified. The other 4 strategies follow the lot size proposed by the money management
system. The HiRider Scalper will buy or sell with a target of between 5 and 12 pips when the extreme of
a move is detected and a reversal is expected.
FRWC Fusion Strategy
he FRWC Fusion-V EA is a great synergy of some of the best performing robots from the contest:
LMD-MultiCurrency, HiRider, SuperVolcano, Neg-Correlation and Straasha
FRWC says that “When combined together, along with some improvements by the experienced FRWC team, they
produce really great results. For example, the Straasha EA did not perform well during the live trading
phase because of some minor bugs, but it has great potential which was used in the FRWC Fusion-V EA!”
I guess we will see how great these results really are.
FRWC LMD Currency Strategy
LMD trades several currency pairs. It does not use any indicators, which is a good sign. The main signal is
based on the open price of a Daily bar inside the channel defined by the High/Low of the last several
days. LMD places a large StopLoss and TakeProfit values, however, it normally closes trades without
reaching either level. You can also use the special feature called “EquityProfitCloseLimit” to close its
trades when a certain profit level is reached.
FRWC Super Volcano Strategy
The SuperVolcano EA waits until the volatility is very high, as measured by the Chaikin Volatility
Indicator. When the volatility is high and the price has gone up, it sells. Similarly, when the volatility is
high and the price has gone down, it buys. It uses the same conditions for closing the positions, thus the
EA is almost always in play.
After a bit of research, there seems to be a lot of mixed results and views about each of the FRWC EA’s. I will update this conclusion when I start getting some more test results.
FRWC Fusion – Stay away from this one! Fusion is an account blower upper.
