Development of Forex Robot and technical indicators

Algorithm Trading (Automated Trading) is one of the most powerful components of Meta Trader 4 and allows you to develop, test, and execute specialized expert advisors and technical indicators. It removes barriers to analytical and trade activities.

The platform’s MQL4,5 IDE (integrated development environment) allows the development of specialized expert advisors (trading robots) and technical indicators of any complexity. At its core is MQL4,5 object-oriented programming language for the development of trading strategies. It offers high efficiency, flexibility and functionality.

Built-in meta editor designed to develop MQL4,5’s trading strategies. It also has troubleshooting

Compilation is also done in the editor. After that, the application will automatically move to Meta Trader 4, which can be tested or optimized in Strategic Tester, another MQL4,5 IDE component. The Meta Trader 4 platform runs trading applications, making it the ultimate component of the environment.

So, in Meta Trader 4, your index analyzes the market and a special expert advisor trades in them. But that is not all. You can use your finished product in several other ways.
