The greatest skill in trading is the ability to take trades & stay profitable even when you're not at the chart.

Around 5 years ago, I decided I didn't want to spend my valuable time staring at a chart... waiting for trades to show up.

I embarked on a journey of coding my existing trading strategies into algorithms.

And it really paid off :-)

Since then, I've used these algos to take trades 24/5 and built a 6-figure trading account in the process.

But it's not just about the money... I ended up gaining back a lot of time to do things I enjoyed.

I'm able to keep trading consistently no matter if I'm traveling around the world, relaxing at the beach, or flying small private planes across the country.

In March 2022, I decided I wanted to teach that skills to other traders so I launched Algo Nation to my first group of students

We've had & still get an extremely high demand...

Through this, I learned what it took to teach regular folks to become profitable trading algos.

I usually only take up a small group of students each time... giving them my entire algo strategies.

Then, we coach them until they're profitable before I open it up to new people.

Fast-forward to today, we've got 389 traders who've learned how to set up automated trading strategies that take less than 2hrs/wk. to manage.

And today, I'm ready to take on a group of committed traders...

This is a program to help serious Forex traders with a full-time job/business that don't have enough time for trading…

It’s also for those that can't get profitable trading on their own and want to automate the entire process.

More specifically, I’ll help you make an extra $1k-$5k a month by running automated trading strategies that once set up, can be managed in as little as 2hrs a week.

All this without doing a bunch of backtesting yourself, having to come up with your own rules, or following unreliable signals...

You’ll be responsible for managing these algos.

We will show you exactly how that works... so you can earn even when you're not at the charts!

The returns you make with these strategies will entirely depend on your account balance and risk tolerance.

But even someone extremely careful could get these strategies running and collect a decent profit every quarter.

Here’s what this can look like:

With a bit of practice, you can stop relying on your own analysis & discipline and get consistent results by running strategies you can trust will enter the right trades at the right time... 

At first, you’ll learn the strategy rules so you can build your confidence. Then you might run those automated trading strategies on demo or a small account and make small gains until you build a portfolio.

But once you’re able to see those small & consistent gains every month…

Things can scale up pretty fast.

Students Who Use Those Strategies & Algos

Many of my students got great results once they set up the algos part of Algo Nation and started to automate their trading.

Such as Justin who shared his results after 2 months of using the algos with our recommended settings and continues to get results after 9 months.

Or Todd, who reversed his losing streak in a prop firm challenge right when he started using Algo Nation's "Secretariat" strategy!

Or Stephane, who made 9.5% and 11.8% on his first 2 months of using Algo Nation's BBR strategy!

These are just a few of the people who became part of “Algo Nation”, able to produce a big change by making their trading automated and more consistent.

But while the money is great… it’s the FREEDOM to do whatever you want in the day that’s the real treasure.

Who This Program Is For?

So, I’m looking for a maximum of 20 determined Forex traders with a full-time job or business who don't have a ton of time for trading like Justin, Todd, and Stephane who want to make an extra $1k-$5k/mo by running automated trading strategies they set up in as little as 30-60 days.

What will we do together?

You’ll learn how to run and manage trading algorithms, a skill that will save you time and many bad trades.

You’ll also discover how to transition from manual trading to an algo manager that can make good returns no matter how you feel or what you want to do that day.

Then, you’ll be guided through scaling up your automated trading business… and even using these algos we’ll provide you to pass prop firm challenges.

We've built on all the lessons we learned from the traders who joined in the initial launch of Algo Nation... so your experience in 2023-2024 will be a lot better!

There’s nothing fancy about it, but…

In as little as 30-60 days... some of our students are able make an extra $1k, $3k or even $5k/mo too.

Even while they’re out on the beach or living their best life!

Why Consistent Trading Didn't Work For You Yet

Now, when traders struggle to make a consistent income trading, it’s usually because they don't have a proven & tested trading strategy.

But even if you have a good strategy, it's tough to execute that strategy consistently when you have all these other ‘life commitments’.


2 main things are holding most people back from actually making good money in trading:

1. Not Having Diversified Strategies: because any trading strategy will eventually hit a drawdown and a lot of traders will get discouraged. What really helps is having 2 or more strategies that complement each other. When one is down, the other one is up. This is the thinking behind Algo Nation.

The other thing stopping them is...

2. Not Finding Good Strategies To Trade: whether you spend hours reading books or watching YouTube videos, you’ll realize good strategies are hard to come by. And often they’re the result of years of learning from the market and adapting the strategy to it. I’m going to give you my 2 best strategies so you don’t have to do all that work.

What You'll Get From Algo Nation

In short…

You’re gonna learn to run my automated trading strategies that can make an you $1k-$5k a month in as little as 30-60 days... and realistically scale up to a full-time trading career.

It works even if you don’t know how to code, have never traded profitably before, or aren’t a fan of technology..

I don’t know how often I’ll open spots to join the project…

Because I want to make sure people who get their hands on the algos will all get profitable with them. My team and I are coaching each student along the way. It won’t work if too many people are onboard.

So it would be great if you could join us.

And here's what happens if you get started today:

You’ll get immediate access to the automated trading strategies online, as well as the Slack community for support.

INCLUDING: a self-paced course that will guide you through implementing the strategies quickly so you can start seeing the results right away.

  • You’ll save a lot of trial-and-error that I went through with algos.
  • You won’t need to wait at the chart for your setup to show up.
  • You'll have 2 solid trading strategies and won't need to search anymore.

Think about how that’s going to remove the frustration from trying strategies & techniques that don’t even work in the first place.

And you won’t feel drained from having to look at your trades in loss every day. If anything, I’m confident you’ll feel a lot more energized once you start seeing the momentum from the strategies in Algo Nation.

Here's a quick preview of what we'll cover in the course:

What Improvements Are Coming Up In 2024?

We've put massive changes into Algo Nation...

2023 has taught me a lot about teaching traders at any level to become profitable using algos.

My team and I completely revamped the process we have our students go through.

The entire portfolio creation process has been broken down & simplified... which means anyone can now start trading our automated strategies and create a portfolio of their own in a short time.

This is ideal if you hope to scale up with prop firms because your trades won't be the same as everybody else and you'll still be making great monthly returns!

We've also added more content on where our students got stuck so you can cut your learning curve in half and start seeing profitable results faster. 

As you'll see lower on this page, there are modules to guide you from start to finish on becoming a profitable algo trader using our strategies.

And in 2024, we're going even stronger :-)

What's Algo Nation Like In 2024?

  • Validated Trading Portfolio

    Every year we release a new model portfolio for our students where we do all the work of optimization and validating the settings. This is the portfolio that I trade in my account and you can get access to it NOW.

  • MT5 Version Upgrade

    We're making the transition from Meta Trader 4 to Meta Trader 5 (MT5) platform for improved performance and much faster testing. When you join you lock in your access to the updated MT5 version as soon as it releases at no extra cost.

Live Trading Performance Of The Strategies

Before I show you the stats of the strategies you’ll get in Algo Nation, there’s one thing I must point out.

You’ll be able to see what makes Algo Nation's strategies different from most algo programs out there.

Maybe you tried buying an algo in the past… only to have it lose money consistently after a few months.

So this leaves the question: “Why do so many algos fail?”

The answer is simple: Over-optimization & bad risk management

Most people who build algos do everything they can to make them seem flawless. They want this straight-no drawdown equity curve. That’s the reason why they blow up.

It’s not rocket-science but…

You can’t expect to be getting a consistent paycheck with an algo that’s built to look good.

It might work for 1-2 months… but eventually it will just start losing consistently.

The way I built algos in Algo Nation is different… because the rules of each strategy is based on my manual trading.

We didn’t optimize it at all. We simply designed it in way that can be adapted to the market condition at any given time.

All the settings we use are based on simple market logic.

So let’s get into the performance & live trading results of Algo Nation…

We have collected data on the strategies over a 2 year period up.

Check out this summary of both automated strategies combined:

Algo Backtesting

Walk-Forward (Live)

Since both strategies complement each other, we’re able to keep the max. drawdown very low (between 7.46% and 11.5%). In 2023, my max drawdown was right in that sweet spot.

Trading manually, my regular drawdown was around 15%, which is way higher!

But what about on a monthly basis?

Having the strategies part of Algo Nation running at the same time means you’ll take both trend and reversal trades.

There are very few losing months as you’ll see below and on most months the strategies made between 1.7-5% (given a low 1% risk per trade).

This is what a normal & healthy equity curve looks like in trading. Not like what you see on social media.

The reason it looks steep is we are compounding the returns. A non-compounded equity curve would be more choppy.

Here’s some more proof straight from MyFxBook (non-compounded).

Secretariat (day trading strategy) on EUR/USD 15min:

This strategy focuses on day trading trends. It works well on several Forex pairs with a win rate of 47%, but a reward to risk of 2:1 or more.

AUDUSD 1hr is one of my favorite pairs to run the Bollinger Bands Reversal strategy on:

Usually a higher win rate on AUD pairs, 65% in this case!

If you invested $10,000 with the algo 4 years, you’d have $154,535.31 in your account today given a risk of 1% per trade (compounded).

This translates to 5.3% per month on average.

Let's be clear: this is backtested data because I wasn't trading the algo 4 years ago. Also, I am not guaranteeing any results. You'll get the same tools & settings I use... yet it's your responsibility to use them how you want.

In 2021-2023, our model algo portfolio returned 85.48%

This means your earlier $100,000 would have turned into $185,482

More than 8x the typical return of the S&P 500 (or any hedge fund).

Want to see what that could look like in real capital gains?

Simply head over to the page linked below to see how the portfolio performed for me.

You can adjust the fields in blue for any starting capital or risk per trade and see what the results would look like for you.

But what about live results?

These are my live statistics verified by MyFxBook with the algos since March 2023 with our updated recommended settings and its been running the 2024 settings from January:

Click here to see detailed results on MyFxBook

If you had simply set up the algos with our recommended settings and let them run on MT4, you'd be up 44% by now! 

Not a bad year for hands-off trading!

You can decide to trade fewer or more pairs/instruments if you wish. That way you can create a portfolio you're happy with.

I hope you can see from these trading performance stats that:

  • The strategies aren’t over-optimized and therefore likely to work long-term.
  • You’re able to get a very good return for the risk
  • The portfolio will be tested again in 2024 for extra reliability

The 3rd point is especially important. These are the kinds of algo that could fairly easily get you funded by a prop firm if you set them up right!

If you want to pass a prop firm evaluation, we'd recommend reducing the risk per trade to 0.5% per trade or lower. And it's probably a good idea to focus on day trading over swing trading.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know how to code?

Nope. In fact, coding isn’t required in Algo Nation. I’ve built the algos for you with a team of developers and we added a lot of settings you can customize at your preference.

All you need to do is change the settings by clicking on a dropdown and choosing what works for you.

Remember… this really is a hands-off approach to trading :-)

Will this work for day trading or swing trading?

For both. There are 2 automated strategies in Algo Nation.

One is focused on day trading trends. The other is swing trading reversals. That being said, you’ll be able to use the strategies on any timeframe & pairs you want.

We’ll definitely be happy to give you our best settings if you want!

Do you have any proof of algo performance?

Yes absolutely, I want to be transparent with how the strategies in Algo Nation perform.

Scroll back on click here (algo performance) to see all the stats.

What platform/broker are the algos for?

The algos currently only run on MT4. We hope to support TradingView and MT5 in the future.

If you want to place trades on MT5 (eg: for a prop firm), you can copy the trades automatically from MT4 to MT5 with a free trade copier.

That being said, any broker offering MT4 as a platform will work to run the strategies.

What broker/platform can I trade on?

Any broker of your choice will do.

The Trading Strategy Playbook covers a wide range of instruments & timeframes.

You can go for a Forex broker or any other stocks/Futures broker of your choice that has the products you want to trade.

If you need suggestions, we'll be glad to assist once you join.

How much money should I put in my trading account for Algo Nation?

It doesn’t really matter where you start. If you focus on the Secretariat strategy (day trading), US $1,000 would be enough capital to get started.

For the Bollinger Bands Reversal strategy (swing trading), I’d recommend at least US $4,000 so the algo can take all the trades.

If the algos are unable to take a position that would respect your risk percentage per trade, they will skip the trade and wait for the next one.

How much capital do I need to make an extra $1k-$5k/mo?

It very much depends on how many pairs you trade (i.e. portfolio) and the risk you're willing to tolerate.

With a low 1% risk per trade, you'd need roughly $100k to $160k to make around $5k/month. I can't guarantee any results... but that's my estimate.

By the same logic, you could expect an account of a little over $25k to yield $1k/month on average.

These are estimates based on past performance.

If you don't have the capital yourself, there are prop firms that can fund you for up to $1.2M.

This would make reaching the goal a lot easier. 

Is there a guarantee?

Yes, I want to make sure you'll get positive results with Algo Nation.

There is an "action-based guarantee".

Do I need to buy extra tools/softwares?

The only 2 other investments I could think of are:

  • VPS if you want to run the algos 24/5 without leaving your computer open. Should cost around $15-20/month.
  • High-quality tick data for backtests: this is not necessary, we'll show you ways to get free high-quality data in Algo Nation but some people still prefer to buy specific data software which makes the process easier and faster. Max $400, but again not necessary.
