Please tell us about yourself, your occupation and how you've come to Forex.
from Italy, and I work as a software developer in an international
company, which deals with investments of funds into securities and other
financial instruments. I've been developing various software since
1996, I usually develop using Microsoft platforms and languages like C#
and others. I am also interested in other areas like Linux, opensource,
and web application in general.
When did you decide to try Forex trading? Did you start right with MetaTrader 5 or had you used MetaTrader 4 before?
Maybe I am the only participant of this Championship (or one of the few), who began directly with MetaTrader 5 and MQL5. I got interested in the platform only a year ago. A friend of mine, David (brainkiller)
introduced the forex world to me some months ago. Since then, I began
using MetaTrader 5 and developing my own Expert Advisors. I started with
the simplest ones moving on to more complex EA trying to get a profit
from the market.
