In this course you will learn how to completely automate your trading coding a trading robot (expert advisor). We will develop an expert advisor from scratch that can trade on different financial markets, such as forex, cryptocurrencies, stocks, indices or futures.
In the first section we will review the Metatrader 5 platform (MT5) and have a first look at the MQL5 language and programs.
Sections 2 to 5 focus on the MQL5 language fundamentals. During these sections we will cover all of the language basic features, providing you with many trading-related examples and assignments that will keep the content engaging while brief enough to speed you up to the most exciting part of the course, sections 6 to 12.
In section 6 we will introduce you to expert advisors and a well-known and popular trading system that has been used extensively in the past.
In sections 7 to 11 we will apply all the knowledge acquired in previous lessons to develop a trading robot that automates a trading system and trades non-stop while the markets are open.
Finally, in section 12 we will backtest and deploy the trading robot in different markets to review that it applies the trading system correctly.
In March 2023 we made a huge update to the course, replacing more than 50 lectures and adding new ones to provide an even better learning experience!
Now is the right time to learn algorithmic trading.
In today’s modern markets, the share of algorithmic trading in volume terms stands around 70-80 per cent, and there are several reasons for that:
Algorithmic trading allows you to trade as many strategies or markets as your computing power provides, overcoming human limitations that constrain manual traders.
Automating your strategies frees up time from repetitive screening of the markets that you can then allocate to research, leisure, or other activities. Furthermore, robots can trade 24/7 which mean they can trade any session, at any time and without rest, which is impossible to do for a single human.
Emotionless and error-free. Algorithms read patterns and apply pre-established coded rules without experiencing fear or any other emotions, which means that robots do not commit mistakes, programmers do.
Algorithmic trading will not only automate your trading, but also it is the first step to trade like a quant, which means that every decision you take will be backed by data and statistics that will be provided by your algorithms and this will increase your chances of success in the markets.
Backtesting and optimization is much faster and comprehensive through algorithms than through manual means with spreadsheets, which will allows you to know the performance of a strategy in the past and, again, increase your chances of success in the markets.
