More and more of our Russian stock market has transformed from a peaceful, growing steadily in a very aggressive and volatile. Great fluctuations unknown in the past. Movement is quite decent, but investors did take from them can not. Therefore, more and more traders become, and the market becomes "for trader." The fate of the trader - is hard monotonous work. You can ease the burden by automating processes. And the latter is necessary for the implementation of advanced tools for the financial markets. The most popular of the proposed Russian broker is ITS QUIK. Last often does not comply with Russian traders. I will list some of the shortcomings of the system QUIK:
Limited number of graphical indicators;
The complexity of the automation of commercial processes and a critical shortage of ready-made solutions;
No possibility of testing automated trading systems;
Narrow and less accessible programming language QPILE (compared to MQL4);
The lack of complete statistics on the transactions;
The foregoing reflections, and motivated me to find a solution formula MetaTrader 4 + QUIK. The idea of \u200b\u200bthe project came to me in early 2007. Initially, the project was designed for personal use, but due to the interest in Russian traders, it was decided to sell this product.
Many traders who work only on the stock market, have no idea about MetaTrader 4 and its advantages. Therefore, here I will try to briefly list the pros and cons of the program.
Modern design, complete Russification, extensive charting capabilities (drawing lines Fibo, support / soprativleniya, etc.) - all this, taken together, makes trading even more fun, interesting and enjoyable experience. It should be added, MetaTrader 4 has a good help system in Russian, which will reduce the time to master it.
Complete statistics on transactions and individualization of each. Ability to save statistics to a file. Displays each application execution and conditional on the chart.
Probably the most accessible language indicators and automated trading systems (Expert Advisors) based at C ++. Very convenient, MetaEditor with excellent explanation of the function, the ability to download from the Internet database of ready indicators, scripts and advisors, fast compilation, etc.
In view of the availability of the programming language, the Internet can find a lot of ready-made indicators and experts for free.
The possibility of testing and optimization (selection of the best options) of automated trading systems in MetaTrader 4. Also, it is possible to visualize the sales process directly on the chart. This is a very useful feature, because you can see all the flaws of the test automated trading system, as well as the mechanism of transactions and fixing profits. During testing, all the statistics displayed for each transaction individually, a separate graph shows the drawdown of funds and profits. At the end of the report shows the total. The only drawback of the tester - a lack of portfolio testing, but there is the possibility of writing automated systems using the story of the additional trading tools.
Possibility of mobile trading in shares on the MICEX PDAs (Pocket PC) with support for Windows Mobile 2002 and higher. Suffice modern mobile terminal allows: to track the price chart and statistics account, make transactions, set foot (including moving trailing stops) and take profits, includes more than two dozen of the most popular graphic indicators lead alerts using sounds, duplicate transactions in QUIK (working in conjunction with the terminal on a large PC, the software package must be configured and connected to the Internet permanently).
