Algorithmic Trading In MQL5: OOP & Advanced Techniques
What you'll learn
- How to code from an object-oriented programming approach
- How to code classes and objects and implement them in an expert advisor
- How to send, modify and cancel pending orders
- How to use time to make the EA trade in specific hours or days
- How to use volatility targets
- How to manage position risk
- Basic knowledge of the MQL5 programming language
In this course you will learn how to code with object-oriented programming and some advanced techniques that many algo-traders use in their every-day trading, including your instructor.
This course is structured in three parts.
In the first part we will focus on how to code object-oriented programming in MQL5. We will cover the theory while maintaining a practical approach.
In the second part we will take the expert advisor that we built in the previous course, and we will rebuild that robot with classes and objects of our own. In case that you did not complete the previous course, there is a copy of that expert advisor available for download, so you can follow along with the lectures.
In the third part we will add new-advanced features to our rebuilt expert advisor.
First, we will cover everything about pending orders and we will create a version of our robot that trades with them. Next, we will code a trading timer and make our expert trade only during the time specified. Following that, we will learn about volatility, different methods to calculate volatility, and we will implement and use volatility in our EA. Finally, we will learn about risk management and we will implement a technique to manage the risk we take in our positions.
