Outrageous Predictions 2017 is out! In this call, high-yielding bond default rate spirals to 25% from less than an average 4% as the failure of central-bank policy leads to a mighty reckoning in the corporate space.

o$ama...I can't say I could recommend any specific books to you but may I refer you to Zefy/KOM/Qi2 onsite whom seem to be strong on the programming for MT4 which may the easiest route to building your algo. My systems run on a different protocol programme language (C+)

Hi o$ama, I hire engineers to code create my own platform, so I have almost no knowledge of coding. However if you haven't traded manually (on a demo) and found a successful strategy you want coded, its best to trade first. You should want to know exactly why and when you system will work. Then you can code the algorithm, there are two steps, first is all about the algorithm and why it works, then second is about execution, which helps you decided which platform and broker you want to use, as this can have a big impact on your trading success. But they are two very distinct steps and they are only employed once you have a proof your strategy works on demo trading.

At least this is my approach -)

Totally agree Qi2...then you need to look at control measures and reporting systems to maximise returns and reduce costs plus the placement of filters to eliminate rogue signals and parameters to cover trades when the market seems to be overheating and your profits are high you need something to automatically close the trade out.....ah the fun of algo's LOL.

A way to start might be to download the Metatrader 4 platform from http://www.metatrader4.com/en and this site also has coding tutorials. You can open a demo account through the platform from Metaquotes and that would let you demo trade and as you're an engineer, you could take a look at the coding environment.
