Algorithmic Trading

What is Algorithmic Trading?

Algorithmic trading is the automation of specific trading strategies. It typically involves the application of a set of criteria, for example indicators and instructions, which can be programmed to a trading account, known as Expert Advisors. This allows a trader to identify and manage multiple transactions, in turn maximising opportunities whilst minimising involvement.

Advantages of building your own Expert Advisor

An Expert Advisor (EA) can be configured to trigger alerts or notifications and to place trades on your behalf. This saves time and effort, allowing you to concentrate on your strategies.

Algo Trading typically involves the application of a set of criteria (e.g. moving average cross) to identify trading opportunities, with automatic execution/action on your behalf when pre-determined criteria are met.

“Alert or Trade” feature

Configure your Algo Builder to trigger alerts/notifications to you or place trades on your behalf, saving you time and effort and allowing you to concentrate on your trading strategies.

Remember you need the MT4 trading platform to be installed on your computer prior to installing the Algobuilder.
