Not sure if you need a VPS? - scroll down to the bottom of this summary and see what value there is in course for you.


I will show you how to fully AUTOMATE your VPS. This means when a system CRASH does happen (and trust me - one day it will!) all your systems will be back online in a matter of minutes! Your Forex Robots will continue trading and your investments will not be stopped by a system CRASH.

This course is packed with exclusive BONUSES for students ONLY! I will provide you with proprietary tools to configure your VPS:

  • Windows Registry configuration tool;
  • And even a Watchdog EA to ensure uninterrupted MT4 connection

*** -------------------------------------- PROOF! -------------------------------------- ***

To prove to you that this guide adds immense value, at the end of the course I will simulate a disaster on MY OWN VPS. No kidding! I will knock out my VPS real-time, and YOU WILL SEE how the tools you get in this course will bring it back to life in a matter of minutes!

If you are not able to achieve the same outstanding result on your own VPS, you can request your money back. No questions asked.


Never ever used a VPS before? - No Problem! I used to be just like you and used my home computer run my MT4 Expert Advisors. Having a Virtual Private Server has been a GAME-CHANGER and has taken my algorithmic trading to the next level! I want to help you see the same result!

Forex Trading

Since 2007 I have been actively involved in the Forex market as a trader as well as running programming courses in MQL4. Forex trading is something I really enjoy, because the Forex market can give you financial, and more importantly - personal freedom.

In my other life I am a Data Scientist - I study numbers to analyze patterns in business processes and human behaviour... Sound familiar? Yep! Coincidentally, I am a big fan of Algorithmic Trading :) EAs, Forex Robots, Indicators, Scripts, MQL4, even java programming for Forex - Love It All!


To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about both Data Science and Forex Trading and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
