How did you start your Forex activity? Was it your education that sparked your interest in this market?
Yes, probably. I studied shares and
options at the university. I traded them for some time and then switched
to more stable work. Four years ago I became interested in that again
but I wanted to try the more liquid Forex market that time.
What market and shares did you trade initially? What platform did you use?
I have traded Lithuanian shares via
the platform offered by one of the Lithuanian banks. This was about 10
years ago. I became interested in Forex somewhere in 2008 and chose MetaTrader 4. I liked this platform. I know MQL4 language well enough. I did a lot of programming using it. When MetaTrader 5 was released it lacked the strategy tester at first. I wanted to
develop Forex robots in some new languages. Therefore, I learned Java.
