I thought it would be helpful to have an easy to find spot to see what the rules are on this forum, because there has been some confusion with them before (from me for sure, possibly with other people as well).

Just some short artricle about the following: How to Make a Trading Robot in No Time
Trading on financial markets involves many risks including the most
critical one - the risk of making a wrong trading decision. The dream of
every trader is to find a trading robot, which is always in good shape and not subject to human weaknesses - fear, greed and impatience.
Each newcomer wants to get or create a clear and strict trading
system that can be presented in the form of algorithms and completely
get rid of routine operations. Is it possible?
A trading system is a necessary condition
for entering the market and that system should be profitable, of
course. When newcomers come to the market, they are usually overwhelmed
by the great mass of information difficult to grasp. Books and trader
forums can provide some help in that case.
Unfortunately, not all authors are
successful traders and not all successful traders write books. Many
special web resources are created only to earn profit for their owners,
as it is much more difficult to trade your own money than to issue
forecasts and teach trading systems.
Each trader should independently pass all
stages of a trading system creation. There is a popular saying that it
does not matter what system you use for trading, the main thing is that
you should really trade according to that system. Otherwise, trading on
the market turns into a gamble with a predictable result.
And some new articles:
1. Applying fuzzy logic in trading by means of MQL4
"The modern-day trading cannot be imagined without automated trading
systems usually called Expert Advisors or robots. Most, if not all, of
them feature a clear, hard-coded trading strategy and money management
system. Their main advantage is a rigid algorithm excluding the human
factor. However, this advantage is also their main drawback since
trading robots lack flexibility. Regardless of the market conditions, an
Expert Advisor always applies the same trading strategy with the same
strictly categorized parameters. In other words, the system always acts
rigidly: average trend > enter the market with one lot, strong trend
> enter the market with two lots. No deviations!"
