New article Do Traders Need Services from Developers? has been published:

Algorithmic trading becomes more popular and needed, which naturally led to a demand for exotic algorithms and unusual tasks. To some extent, such complex applications are available in the Code Base or in the Market. Although traders have simple access to those apps in a couple of clicks, these apps may not satisfy all needs in full. In this case, traders look for developers who can write a desired application in the MQL5 Freelance section and assign an order. Just like this:


Order for Expert Advisor Consisting of 4 Custom Indicators

Generally speaking, this kind of order is pretty ordinary and straightforward in terms of programming, but it requires the developer to create a unique EA for the specific trader. Apparently, for the customer it is more convenient to work with such an expert and he is willing to pay for the job. There are many orders as such in the Freelance section, and this is a great opportunity to gain income through Freelance jobs in a short time, solving an interesting and unique challenge.

I am not sure this advertisement can have the right effect here. 

Actually most tasks are requested for 10-30 credits. If you mean to code for income seriously, you cannot accept such a cheap job. Other jobs, which are worth serious offer (>100 credits) are often booked ahead, or crowded with applications. It is obvious that the job creator takes the one of the 268 guys rather than a new applicant without record. So the goal should be extending the offer, rather than the coders count.

I suspect the jobs section is dominated by Asian coders where 20 credits is worth a lot more than it is in Europe and America, for example here are some things a coders could buy with 20 credits in India vs America

India

A motel room for 2 nights 

15 restaurant meals

50 loaves of bread

15lb boneless chicken breast

12 packs Marlboro cigarettes

America

20 credits is less than half the cost of 1 night in a motel room

2 restaurant meals (barely)

8 loaves of bread

5.5lbs boneless chicken breast

3 packs Marlboro cigarettes
