Product - Advantage


Algorithmic Trading with MT4 made easy

Advantage helps traders develop algorithmic trading strategies as quickly as possible using MQL4 programming on the MT4 (MetaTrader 4) trading platform.

The automation inherent in algorithmic trading can benefit any systematic trading style, even discretionary / manual, by enabling the tracking of more setups or management of more trades than possible through human analysis alone.

Advantage takes the form of a zip folder containing a user guide pdf and a set of template programs (Expert Advisors, Indicators and Scripts) which link to 1000s of lines of supporting code (in Include and Library files).

Advantage is built primarily for Windows systems.
