MT4 Auto Trading Question - Requesting Help


davidbrister

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 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 😊

    • Gold makes fresh #Leg 1 to the downside while electing the MAJOR bearish reversal of 1836.10. The nearest bearish reversals starts at 1814.10 and presents the current trading range.
    • Following on from with the NETW chart above showing the Gartley: Its VITAL for you to take the geometry 1 step further - you can wing it without, but to really nail things down, it would be prudent to understand and KNOW geometrical relationships  I've worked out all the geometrical relationships for all the ratios So for example If a market retraces to a 61.8% level and a ABCD is working out, its highly probable that the CD leg will reach 161.8% of the AB leg from C - that's because 1.618 and 61.8% are linked intrinsically - 61.8% is the INVERSE of 161.8% Take the NETW chart: Price retraced to exactly 50% level - this is NOT a Fib number its ratio related to the SQUARE - from the chart below have a stab in the dark of the number % that 50% is the Inverse of.............................................. That's right 200% - Once you know these ratios, you no longer have to scratch your head wondering why a market does things at certain levels Look how the market reacted once it balanced the prior main retracement of 50% at the 200% level - obviously important! Thought these markets were meant to be random????????????????????????????????????? The expectation would be a rally upwards from that zone THT
    • Hi @Irsa Welcome to the community and thanks for reaching out.   Different types of leveraged products The majority of leveraged trading uses derivative products, meaning you trade an instrument that takes its value from the price of the underlying asset, rather than owning the asset itself. The main leveraged products are: 1. Spread betting (UK only) A bet on the direction in which a market will move, which will earn more profit the more the market moves in your chosen direction – but more loss if it goes the other way.   2. Contracts for difference (CFDs) An agreement with a provider to exchange the difference in price of a particular financial product between the time the position is opened and when it is closed.
