I’m looking for a basic guide for beginners for algorithmic trading for forex and for stocks. It will be actually two guides one for forex algorithmic trading using MQL4/5 using the Meta Trader platform.
The second guide will be stocks algorithmic trading (not only stocks but also future, bond etc.). Since I don’t have a programming language and a platform in mind you’re welcome to choose a popular one. Using a common language like C# or Java and how to integrate to the broker using different API the brokers offer is perfect.
The target audience is people with basic understanding on programming interested in algorithmic trading so there is no need for a really basic guide on programming just for the basic algorithmic trading.
Each guide will contain 10 lessons, each of at least 1000 words including screenshots so the project will be 20 lessons overall.
Again, both guides are not connected to each other, each should show how to implement basic trading strategies and teach the basics on how to develop such programs.
Of course all content must be unique.
