It was a long time since I’ve posted on my blog but that’s all about to change.
I got burned by eToro and I was planning to switch to ZuluTrade but in the end i gave it up. I just felt I needed a break from forex to pursue other ideas.
My plan from the beginning was all the time to build a bot to do my trading, but after a lot of time banging my head against the keyboard with MT4/MT5 I just gave up. The reason is that MQL is a dialect of C++, and i’ve never liked C++, not event when I worked as a C/C++ programmer. My favourite choice of coding language is C# and I did a lot of stuff to be able to do my EAs and Indicators in C# instead of C++, but in the end it wasn’t very productive. I could take a couple of days writing an EA to test a simple idea and even then i didn’t really trust it.
So this time around I won’t be using MetaTrader at all. I still haven’t decided if I will be using NinjaTrader or cTrader, but both are C# and that’s the important thing. I don’t really like the UI of NinjaTrader but it has lot more indicators than cTrader, but more importantly, it has forward testing. I feel a lot more efficient working with cTrader, so one solution might be testing all ideas in cTrader, and if I find anything promising i switch to ninja trader for forward testing. We’ll see,
I don’t want to go into details, just wanted to let you know, I’m back and I’m hungry!
