"Be sure to participate in the Automated Trading Championships, where
you can get a truly invaluable experience!" - this is the motto of
contestant Enbo Lu (luenbo)
from China. He appeared in the TOP-10 of Automated Trading Championship
2012 last week and is now consistently trying to reach the podium.
Hello Enbo. Please tell us a little about yourself, how you got to the Championship and what ties you with algorithmic trading.
I have a master degree in communication
engineering and a major in signal and information processing. I live in
Shanghai. Now, I am working in a mobile communication corporation.
Trading is one of my hobbies. I also like swimming and reading in my
spare time. It was about two years ago when I opened my first account to
trade FX. Soon I found it was time and spirit consuming when trading
manually, so I started to think about using robots to automate trader's
It was that time I learned about
MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5. And I find it is amazing that anyone can
get whatever knowledge he wants to design a trading strategy in your
site and forum. Since I am very familiar with C and C++, so there were
no difficulties in learning MQL4 and MQL5.
I also want to note the Step-By-Step Guide to writing an Expert Advisor in MQL5 for Beginners
article which was very useful to me at the beginning. In fact, your
site has a lot of easy to understand articles that will be useful to any
newbie developer of trading strategies.
