It has recently been pointed out to me by a sharp eyed reader of the Trading Gurus home page that Ray the Random Robot has been flatlining for quite a while now. Here's how his equity curve looks at this precise moment in time, courtesy of myfxbook:

Here at the Trading Gurus we often get asked to write MetaTrader 4 "robots". When asked "how much" we quote a random large number. We then add the rider "If you don't mind making your robot open source and letting us publish it on our community forum we'll do the job pro bono".  Nobody has ever taken us up on either of our generous offers. Until now that is!

As a couple of our more perceptive readers have recently pointed out to me, Ray the Random Robot's equity curve (the live version of which you can see proudly displayed to the left of this post) has recently suffered an obvious "blip".

If you're from the United States you may well never have heard of Buru Trader. However if you're a customer of Interbank FX Australia like me, you probably will have done. It's a bundle of two MetaTrader 4 expert advisors called "buru New York" and "buru Tokyo", which IBFX Australia have been promoting over the last few months.  On March 15th IBFX were inviting their customers to find out about:

That prescient title is a quotation from a presentation given by Professor Dave Cliff of the University of Bristol at the Innovation and Algorithmic Trading conference hosted by LMAX at University College London at the end of February. I was sat at the front throughout Dave's talk, and I found myself laughing frequently. Perhaps for that very reason any shots of the back of my head have been left on the cutting room floor in the videos that have just been made available on the LMAX Trader community website. Here's Dave's extremely interesting and even more amusing presentation from that event on the subject of "Robot traders and evolving markets":

Earlier today MetaQuotes Software Corp. published a tutorial on the MQL5 community website about how to create MetaTrader 5 expert advisors without needing to be a programmer. The tutorial covers how to use the  "MQL5 Wizard" that comes as part of the MetaTrader 5 client software to create your very own EA by just pointing and clicking with a mouse.  MetaQuotes also published today a tutorial for programmers discussing how to go about creating the software modules that users of the MQL5 Wizard are able to choose from when building their own personal forex "robot".  Unfortunately at the end of the day if you're not a programmer it seems as though you're still going to be dependent on programmers to provide all the tasty ingredients you might want to put into your own personal trading system "recipe".
