Sid the Superstitious Robot Launched at the Royal College of Art

3

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!

The man who has broken the mould is called Shing Tat Chung, who is currently a student of design at the Royal College of Art in London.  For his part he gave us a specification for a "superstitious robot", which we ultimately agreed should be christened "Sid".  For our part we delivered an MQL4 expert advisor, which you can now download from the "Sid the Superstitious Robot" thread on the Trading Gurus community forum.

Shing has not only designed Sid's superstitious trading algorithm, but also the "Superstitious Fund" that Sid is currently managing as well. Sid even has a "Big Board" of his very own, also designed and built by Shing. As you can see, it displays in real-time the current value of the Superstitious Fund plus some additional information:

If you would like to see Sid and his Big Board "in the flesh" they are being exhibited at Testbed 1 on the RCA's Battersea campus for the next few days.  Sid will continue to manage the Superstitious Fund until June 1st 2013.

Any questions? Here's Sid's very own thread once again!

Last but not necessarily least, and just in case this provides a straightforward answer to your question:

Sid is sponsored by Trading-Gurus.com and supported by Microsoft Research, UK.
