Night Hunter Pro is an advanced scalping system that is focused on long-term growth. It trades on multiple currency pairs and uses an M5 time frame for scanning the markets. The robot requires a hedging account which is quite suspicious as such systems can incur a high drawdown. We will go through each feature of the robot to see if it is profitable to be run on our live accounts.
