Financial Trading Articles

Learn how to create your own technical indicators and trading robots from the huge database of articles written by expert traders.

Share your trading and programming experience with those who are new to algorithmic trading, write an article about it and earn $200. In addition, we will translate your article to six languages.

Continuous Walk-Forward Optimization (Part 1): Working with Optimization Reports

The first article is devoted to the creation of a toolkit for working with optimization reports, for importing them from the terminal, as well as for filtering and sorting the obtained data. MetaTrader 5 allows downloading optimization results, however our purpose is to add our own data to the optimization report.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XXIII): Base trading class - verification of valid parameters

In the article, we continue the development of the trading class by implementing the control over incorrect trading order parameter values and voicing trading events.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XXII): Trading classes - Base trading class, verification of limitations

In this article, we will start the development of the library base trading class and add the initial verification of permissions to conduct trading operations to its first version. Besides, we will slightly expand the features and content of the base trading class.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XXI): Trading classes - Base cross-platform trading object

In this article, we will start the development of the new library section - trading classes. Besides, we will consider the development of a unified base trading object for MetaTrader 5 and MetaTrader 4 platforms. When sending a request to the server, such a trading object implies that verified and correct trading request parameters are passed to it.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XX): Creating and storing program resources

The article deals with storing data in the program's source code and creating audio and graphical files out of them. When developing an application, we often need audio and images. The MQL language features several methods of using such data.

Building an Expert Advisor using separate modules

When developing indicators, Expert Advisors and scripts, developers often need to create various pieces of code, which are not directly related to the trading strategy. In this article, we consider a way to create Expert Advisors using earlier created blocks, such as trailing, filtering and scheduling code, among others. We will see the benefits of this programming approach.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XIX): Class of library messages

In this article, we will consider the class of displaying text messages. Currently, we have a sufficient number of different text messages. It is time to re-arrange the methods of their storage, display and translation of Russian or English messages to other languages. Besides, it would be good to introduce convenient ways of adding new languages to the library and quickly switching between them.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XVIII): Interactivity of account and any other library objects

The article arranges the work of an account object on a new base object of all library objects, improves the CBaseObj base object and tests setting tracked parameters, as well as receiving events for any library objects.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XVII): Interactivity of library objects

In this article, we are going to finish the development of the base object of all library objects, so that any library object based on it is able to interact with a user. For example, users will be able to set the maximum acceptable size of a spread for opening a position and a price level, upon reaching which an event from a symbol object is sent to the program with the spread or price level-based signal.

Strategy builder based on Merill patterns

In the previous article, we considered application of Merill patterns to various data, such as to a price value on a currency symbol chart and values of standard MetaTrader 5 indicators: ATR, WPR, CCI, RSI, among others. Now, let us try to create a strategy construction set based on Merill patterns.
