The too many trades is if there are 300 algos, and I look in the order book and see different orders from different exchanges at the same price point, then I would be adapting to see what's happening, not myself, but there are people who watch order flows.
I don't paper trade, either it works in production with real money or not. Have to get a feel for spreads, commissions, and so on.
Also, in my case, I am hesitant to even use paid services as someone can be watching it, so most my tools are made by me. Good luck with your trading though, if it works out, let me know, I'd pay to use it along side my other trades.
