So, taking this to the next step, what’s to stop a software program from trading your trading model? The answer is Nothing!

How Are Automated Trading Systems Created?
How are Auto Trading Systems developed?
Automated trading systems are created by converting your trading rules into code that your computer can understand. Your computer then runs those rules through your trading software, which looks for trades that adhere to your rules. Finally, the trades are automatically placed via SolasPro.com
What kind of rules can be automatically executed?
You can define rules based on price patterns, market trends, such as fading or counter trends, price points, averages, any combinations of technical indicator, price level proximity or pivots as the input rules for trading.
Once you have coded these rules, you can back test the rules to validate their profitabality and robustness. This saves months of manual time paper trading, which increases your overall productivity. You will be spending your time conceptualisting and testing good trading scenarios, rather the non productive time, paper and manual backtesting, which is rarely accurate.

Do I need to be very technical to run an Automated Trading System?
