Automated Trading in MetaTrader 4

The MetaTrader 4 platform allows you the possibility of developing and using automated trading programs (Expert Advisors or EAs) to do the trading for you.

By using Expert Advisors, you eliminate the need to sit for endless hours in front of a screen watching the movements taking place in the financial markets. Instead you can use your time to do something else. However, forex is one of the riskiest investments available in the financial market.  The possibility exists that you could sustain a substantial loss of funds and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

The built-in MetaEditor allows you to develop such automated trading programs, while the Strategy Tester can be used for testing and optimizing your Expert Advisor.

But there is more to it than that. When using MQL4, the trading strategies programming language, you can also create your own technical indicators and use them on the MetaTrader 4 trading platform.
