QUESTIONS ABOUT DUCIBUS PRO
Here are some of the questions that anyone new to Ducibus Pro should know.
Although we are making our bot safer every day and in our lab we have setups that could be working with ESMA leverage, our recommendation is that you trade Ducibus Pro with leverage between 1:500 and 1:1000.
Leverage is your ally, but you have to understand what leverage consists of and what it is used for.
Remember that the 1:2000 leverage that can be set in RoboForex is automatically lowered to 1:1000 at market close, so your trading could be in serious danger if you trade at this leverage level.
Yes, the broker with which we operate accepts deposits, WITHDRAWALS, exchanges and BTC trading. Although BTC is a very volatile asset and our recommendation is to trade in Euros or Dollars, you can also trade in millibitcoins (mBTC).
If you are going to trade with BTC, we recommend that you increase the minimum amount to invest, for security.
It is also advisable that if you trade Bitcoin, you should be aware of the fluctuations of the cryptocurrency. A sudden change in its value could jeopardize your account.
Another option is to fund your trading account with Bitcoin and trade it in dollars or euros. When you withdraw money to your account, you can do so in Bitcoin. This will allow for more stable and less volatile trading.
Our current presets are designed for sustainable trading on Cent accounts (also called Micro or Cent) with a minimum balance of 20$, 20€ or its equivalent at current exchange rate in mBTC (millibitcoins) and minimum lot sizes of 0.01.
You can open your RoboForex account to operate under these conditions and Ducibus Pro.
With less money the risk increases considerably. You have to decide what your profile is: conservative, medium, risky or "eager".
The million dollar answer:
In backtesting, using "conservative" settings, we have averaged between 10 and 20% monthly returns. In our daily and public trading, we are obtaining similar returns.
Some daring users, who know the product well, combine Ducibus Pro with certain manual trading strategies designed for our bot. Others configure the Expert Advisor in very aggressive modes, which can help your account to reach returns higher than 100% per month, knowing that this type of trading has its days numbered and that we do not recommend it at all.
Please note that our laboratory tests, performed by professionals in the field of quantitative optimization and Artificial Intelligence of trading algorithms, and therefore our recommended sets, are based on past data analysis and do not guarantee that they will continue to work in the same way in the future.
Nevertheless, we take care to keep our configurations up to date through scientific processes of quantitative analysis and recurrent optimization.
You can, but if you want to do it, you will have to pay for a license.
In addition, our benefit comes from attracting clients to your platform. The commission that other brokers would pay us without having to charge our users does not cover the cost of covering the tool and continuing its development so that it can remain free.
On the other hand, we are happy with the way this broker manages its clients, the tools it offers us and its customer service.
Not only can you, but you should.
Keep in mind that trading in any financial market entails a certain amount of risks and that you are solely responsible for taking the risk of doing so.
Also, the best way to know if it is a product that suits you or not is to try it on a demo account.
The demo version allows you unlimited trading on demo accounts at any broker.
It is exactly the same as the real account version, so you can download it in the same way. You just need to log in to the website and go to the Ducibus Pro download.
The only difference between the two is that in order to use Ducibus Pro in real account, you must have followed a few simple steps that we will explain to you there, such as opening an account through our trusted broker where, by the way, you can also invest in cryptocurrencies.
With your demo version, you will be able to test its functionality, perform backtests and test the bot, operating it semi-automatically or taking advantage of its automatic capability using a set of sets designed by us or by yourself.
REQUIREMENTS to operate
Are you going to use Ducibus Pro but don't know what you need yet?
To operate with Ducibus you will need:
1. Open a standard account Pro-Cent in RoboForexset the leverage to 1:500 or 1:1000. You can get the account by clicking on the banner. This will allow you to open an affiliate account with us, which is a prerequisite to trade Ducibus Bot for free.
2. Validate your account and download Ducibus Pro from our website.
3. Know how the bot works, the risks, configurations, etc. You can go to the articles that make up the Ducibus Bot Manual. This is essential if you want to control the risk of the investment you make with the bot.
4. Consider whether you are going to use a VPS to keep your robot connected 24/7. Our recommendation is that you do so.
4. It is not mandatory, but we recommend that you join our community. To do so, please contact our Telegram Support.
Unless you are going to invest with a very large capital, you should use Cent accounts (also called micro or Centavo) that allow microlots of 0.01.
If you invest with respectable amounts of money, you can also consider trading with Standard accounts with Ducibus Pro, although you will not pay less commissions and your profit will not be higher.
You can obtain such an account in the broker we use.
You can also use ECN accounts, although in that case, Ducibus Pro is not free and you will have to pay for one of the licensing plans.
However, in our tests, we concluded that Ducibus Pro makes higher profits on Cent or Standard accounts than on ECN accounts. Although the latter have a lower spread, the commission for opening and closing positions is higher than that paid for the spreads and, in general, we end up with a lower profit.
Our recommendation is that you do so. The bot is active 24/5 (on weekends and some holidays the market is closed). That is why Metatrader is required to be online at all times with the bot running. By using a VPS we avoid a power outage or an automatic update of your system, leaving the bot down, which could be risky for trading.
We are using the Contabo VPS and so far, we have not had any problems.
The architecture of Ducibus Pro requires a higher CPU consumption than other Expert Advisors and the consumption depends on the configuration of the number of MetaTrader 4 instances you intend to use at the same time (one for each account number you are using).
The most basic configuration of a VPS to run Ducibus Pro requires at least 1 CPU and 1Gb of RAM, although it is a very tight configuration and it is preferable to go to something a little higher.
For example, in a Contabo Basic VPS with Windows Server 2012R2 or Windows Server 2019 operating system.
This VPS offers you, for 10€/month, the computing power of 4 CPUs and 8GB of RAM, more than enough for put several MetaTrader 4 to work with Ducibus Pro.
To give you an idea, with a VPS with 1 CPU and 1Gb of RAM (usually the most basic), it gives you enough power for a MetaTrader 4 with 3 pairs trading with Ducibus Pro.
Open the task manager of the VPS and check that the CPU consumption remains at a constant average of no more than 80% (although there may be peaks of more without problems). If this average consumption is higher, it is time to change VPS to a superior one such as the Contabo VPS we use.
10/month would be the price to pay for having a bot with so much control and so much instant information in a cloud operating system.
Of course you can. If you have a good internet connection and a stable power connection (you don't lose power every now and then), you can run MetaTrader 4 with Ducibus Pro on any PC you have at hand. But remember, if the power goes out at home or the router fails, your connection will be lost and that could jeopardize the bot's operation.
You can also ensure continuity of power and Internet connection by using a UPS to support your PC and router while the power is back on.
No. But it is more than recommended.
