She uses mixed trading approach employing both automated and manual trading, her approach is quite unorthodox, because she uses automated trading for trading long-term, whereas she is a manual scalper. Casey generated roughly 80% of her profits scalping, the rest of profits were made by her own EA, which she coded so it could trade and monitor the account even when she is resting. It is important to mention that Casey’s EA made 12 trades, all of which were profitable!
