Megadroid Pro edition is an add on to the popular Megadroid normal version. The pro version performs exactly like the normal version except for the fact that the pro version trades multi currency while the normal version only trades Eur/Usd pair.
The pro version introduces 3 more currency pairs into the Megadroid trading portfolio. These new pairs are:
If you are trading with Megadroid pro version with Eur/Usd, the backtest results generated in our opinion is exactly the same as the normal version. Pro version is not an enhanced version of the popular megadroid expert adviser. The strategy it trades with Eur/Usd is brought over to the other three currency pairs and basically strategy is left intact (certain trading parameters will be adjusted to suit each currency pair). The pro version is not for sale. You can download them only if you purchase a third-party product via their affiliate link.

The maximum drawdown component is taken based from 2005 to 2010 (individual years) and the highest maximum drawdown is used. Like wise for the ratio ROI : Maximum Drawdown, lowest ROI of the each individual 5 years is used so that it provides the lowest possible expectation system will achieve.

Weakesses (if Any)
Uses same support with Megadroid. Responses from their support personnels can be quite bad.
Their support has not been helpful at times and users are expected to be patient when conversing with them. Salespage shows over 2000% ROI which we believe is unacheaveable and undertaking too much risk. Apart from these two points, the rest are good. A promising system if you use it with proper money management, this system is likely to serve you well.
