I use algorithmic trading software to trade in Forex markets. The software routines decide when to put on positions, how to manage them, and closes them out when it is time to take profits. The system makes use of extensive risk mitigation methods, which include diversification and hedging. While the software takes care of the minute-to-minute trading functions, there is constant human oversight, with the ability to intervene should this be required.

Software development is a continuous effort. It is only when algorithmic routines have been tested to the limit that they are allowed to participate in live trading. 

Because it can place and close trades very quickly, as everything is controlled by our computers, my software's operation can be classified as High Frequency Trading (HFT). However, unlike some HFT traders, I do not engage in front-running, spoofing, or any other illicit practices such as those, for example, that are described in Michael Lewis's famous book, Flash Boys.

The software does have a trading edge, however. The edge gives it an above-average chance of making profits. It is derived (1) from the fact that computer trading software never gets tired or bored, and can indulge in repetitive actions that are profitable for weeks, months and even years on end; (2) from the vast amount of research that I carry out into historical price action and the trading characteristics of the Forex pairs I work with; and (3) from the continuous effort I put into the design and testing of our trading software.

I have been guided and inspired by the work that has been done in Chaos Theory by such as Edward N. Lorenz (2017 - 2008), and in Fractal Studies by Benoit Mandelbrot (1924 - 2010), as well as all the other great practitioners of mathematics, physics and engineering that have paved the way in the use of logic and systems. It is accepted now that those subjects, and all matters that have to do with attempting to benefit from what might or might not happen in the future are, at bottom, concerned with probability. My work in profiting from Foreign Exchange trading is devoted to getting probability on my side, and to making use of computer power as an enabler in this endeavour.

The MT4 / MT5 version of the algorithmic Forex trading software is now complete. This is a complete re-write, and not a bridge or an adaptor. The new software is now undergoing testing. Results so far are very positive.

When you open a managed account
, I send you a copy of my book. Then, as you monitor the real-time performance of your managed account, which is traded using our algorithmic, high frequency routines, you can see the forces that move the Forex market, the importance of timing and discipline, the effects of such things as support and resistance, and the impact of fundamental market-moving events.

You can also just sit back and observe the performance of the equity in your account.
