Who Am I?
Welcome to my website, my name is Luca, I have been working in the IT industry for over 10 years and been trading the markets part time for over 5 years now.
Because one of my main passions is automation, I have decided to apply automation to two things I know: Technology and Financial Markets.
I started creating my own scripts to speed up some task during trading. Developed some indicators to visualize price data and send alerts, starting from simple tools to some more complex one.
After I used my own tools I thought that other people might face some of my challenges and could benefit from the same, so I created this website to share the knowledge.
In this website you will find articles to learn about Metatrader and its MQL language and you can download many of the tools that I use in my trading.
I how that you will like it and you will find them as useful as I did.
Trading Automation has become a very important topic in the last few years, the majority of trades are in fact performed automatically by computers using complex systems. Retail traders like you and me can automate their trading as well and this is where MQL4TradingAutomation.com comes to help.
The purpose of MQL4TradingAutomation.com is to help the trader in learning, or improving, Trading Automation skill using MQL Language, the proprietary Language of the MetaTrader platform.
MQL is a great language which allows you to create custom tools that will improve your trading, it is free and used by the most popular trading platform in the world, MetaTrader, which is why I think it is the perfect starting point for your Trading Automation journey.
If you are new to trading we suggest you to start to be familiar with the MetaTrader platform, visit the MetaTrader Software category to get started. If you have never written code or if you are completely new to MQL I would suggest to check the basic concepts of MQL development, such as variables, operators, functions and so on, in the Basics section. Once you are familiar with MetaTrader and the Basics are clear you can move to the powerful world of:
The differences between the above are covered in the Basics section, but you will be impressed of the tasks you can perform. You will learn how to manage Events, File, Orders and Risk, how to trigger Alerts and Notifications, create Reports, Work with Indicators and Trading Signals and Backtest your Expert Advisors, and many other exciting things.
We believe that knowing how to code is pointless if the trading skills are poor so you will also find Trading Tips to help you improve your trading fundamentals.
I really hope that you will find useful material in this website, I am convinced that learning about Trading Automation will help you in getting closer to your trading goals, be prepared because it will not be an easy journey, learn how to code requires discipline and commitment, but anyone can do it with the right attitude.
