MT4 Auto Trading Question - Requesting Help

Question

Hi there, im new to MT4, but not new to the stock market or CFD trading.

I have downloaded MT4 with a live and a demo account setup.

Having seen the video below, which references MT5, how do you create the same robot in MT4 please? as it seems IG dont use MT5.

the help files are very vague on how to actual set up or create stuff, i can see the Auto trade button, i did assign a default Expert Advisor to a chart and the turned on Auto trade, but nothing has happened so far, is some one able to help me please make more sense of what seems a very powerful tool if i can understand it better?

Thanks

DJ

Hi @davidbrister,  the code for mt5 is completely different to mt4 so indicators and EAs are not transferable.

You will need to select an existing mt4 EA (free or paid) from the Metaquotes web site (for all things mt4 or 5), see https://www.mql5.com/en/market/mt4  or look to create your own, see video below.

Hi David, 

Agree with Cassy. 

Also, note for newbie. Automatic trading can be surprisingly different to manual trading. The computer will consider every tiny detail that often the human eye will miss or we choose to zone out and ignore. The computer wl only ignore something if you program it too. 

Automated trading is a fantastic aprrouch to the market but it takes time to learn the differencees and get used to it. Use a demo account until you are 100% comfortable you understand it.  I 

Good luck 😊

    • @Foxy No you cant just trade anything, its licenced, i believe there are 61 pairs/markets that the program can trade in. Each Pair has a retail price of $3300inc but i never paid that, i got my initial 5 pairs for $5500. For my $15K i got another 20 pairs, this time including Gold, and a couple of Index's.
    • If one was unsure about investing in specific funds and trusts then they could consider constructing an ETF portfolio based on these technology themes. The potential is there for higher returns on specialist funds and trusts due to stock picking and capital allocation strategies. However, an ETF, will be a lower cost option but not necessarily a better performing one.
    • Now I have openly shared that I have invested in Bitcoin via XBT Provider One in the SEK (Swedish Krona) currency as I am not sure what the future for the Euro holds with Brexit uncertainty and what any hard Brexit implications may be for other EU Member States. However, you can invest in this in EUR currency too. The same applies for in Ether as well. It now offers ETN's for XRP and Litecoin.  There is also the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust which is trading at a premium but if Bitcoin does well then this too could flourish for investors. This product is more for investing in Bitcoin rather than trading it. It presents a great way for an someone to gain exposure to Bitcoin in their portfolio without having to either physically acquire it and opening a Crypto Wallet, etc. or trading it. I believe nearly 3/4 of the demand from investors investing in this trust is from institutional investors including hedge funds based on the first quarter of 2019.
