Auto Trading Brokers

Recommended Posts

I am having mine account handled by aaafx...they have low spreads, no commission with the auto-trading platform, and the most imp. very low slippage with providers. I have also used alpari for some time but the combined cost of commissions and slippage was a killer for me.:crap::crap:

I'm leaning toward using MBTrading at first because they have low minimum funds requirements with no inactivity fees. Interactive Brokers is a close second, but has fees for inactivity.

Is anyone making money with any autotrading brokers?

 

If so, is it a managed account or are you running an EA or similar automated strategy?

 

I am :haha:

but I am my own account manager - meaning I choose who to follow and how much lots and open trades to follow with. :rofl:

Dear Forum,

I am thinking of using MBTrading for an auto trade program. Are they good?

Are there better brokers to interface to an excel program?

Thanks!

Mike

:cool:

 

I forgot to reply before, you can check as well zulutrade - the trading history can be excel exported.

I make money with forex robot but it is a robot that I programmed with meta quotes. I started trading manually few years ago and only after I had a clear trading plan with a positive statistics I started programming my trading plan and it works good for me- I don't believe in other automated platforms or services. Either way, you got to have a broker that supports forex robots, such as Alpari, FXCM or Sunbirdfx…Good luck with that!

I contacted MBTrading, they don't have rack space at any of the true exchange colocation datacentres. They only offer a VPS service, you can't actually put your own server in. This is bad because for true HF, you need a lot of CPU and memory which is not very cost effective to get on a shared machine using a VPS setup.

VPS service are really not that effective. Is there an alternate for this? vbulletin-smile.gif

 

Buying a dedicated server or hosting your own server near the broker's trading server.

 

But seriously, can you explain why a quality VPS service is not adequate.

 

HFT is probably discouraged on their retail platforms. you would have to go it alone if you desire sub-millisecond HFT.

The main challenge with zulutrade is that most 'investors' sort by highest roi. Many of the traders trade to make their stats look good long enough to entice investors. Then finally the blowup happens. The investor has no idea what happened. Even with some kind of equity stop loss, you are still trying to figure out if you should continue with the same signal or just find a new signal.

 

What is even worse is that the investor may be copying several signals at once, trying to "diversify". But without an understanding of the underlying strategy used in EACH signal, how can you even begin to manage the risk? I like the concept of zulutrade, but unfortunately they are mainly for show. Many blind-leading-the-blind there.

 

I've seen situations where the zulutrade bridge went offline with mt4. I do understand that MQ and ZT had a falling out. But social copy bridges do have some serious flaws and the bridge providers rarely take it seriously enough. Once they have their commissions (which they get on every trade), they tend to ignore any technological deficiencies unless they are major. The commission model also needs work, where at least myfxbook's autotrade only pays out on profitable trades. The current model encourages signal providers to churn out as many trades as possible, not necessarily profitable.

 

I was speaking to a funds manager about social networks, and he admitted that licensed fund managers and others with serious hedge funds do not use these services; way too much counterpary risk.

yeah they look similar, but are you sure you will be making good returns? At least with zulutrade we know that transactions are secured (as it is registered) and from the record and the volume of the trading - people are actually making money :2c:

    • Date : 18th September 2020.FX Update September 18 – A volatile 24hrs.The Dollar has scraped out a two-day low at 92.76 in the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex, with EURUSD concurrently pegging a two-day high at 1.1868, gaining quite sharply from yesterday’s five-week low at 1.1736. A steadying in stock markets today has seen the Dollar ebb back after finding safe haven demand during the worst of this week’s sharp sell-off across global equity markets.The Pound has come under modest pressure against most other currencies. Cable posted an intraday low at 1.2941. The WHO is warning of a serious second wave of SARS-CoV-2 in Europe¹ (Germany recorded 2,179 cases yesterday) on the back of a surge in new cases (despite data showing a continued very low rate of death alongside a relatively low incidence of Covid being listed on death certificates). In the UK, coronavirus cases and, with it, corona-panic are surging. Localised lockdowns are now affecting 10 million people in the UK, and the government’s scientific advisory group are, according to an FT report, advising the government to implement a two-week national lockdown. The embattled Health Secretary (Matt Hancock) this morning called it a “last line of defence” but “will do whatever is necessary”. This is a negative backdrop for the Pound, adding to the uncertainty surrounding the Brexit endgame, and with the minutes from the BoE MPC meeting yesterday affirming that the central bank is at full steam on contingency planning for negative interest rates (although stressing that it is not ready to do so yet).Elsewhere, USDJPY has settled in the mid 104.00s, testing the seven-week low seen yesterday at 104.52. Yen crosses have also rebounded out of lows. Both EURJPY and AUDJPY lifted above their respective Thursday highs. Japan’s core CPI came in at -0.4%y/y, matching expectations, but the NZDJPY was the biggest mover, moving over +0.6% as the Kiwi holds its bid.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Agreed. What makes them interesting or not is their jurisdiction and the regulatory authority. Those NEED to be good ans serious. Everything else is secondary.
    • Date : 17th September 2020.The Guppy dips to 135.00, having stalled at 136.00.GBPJPY, Daily Both the UK and Japan are in the middle of political upheavals, (the Brexit Trade talks and Internal Market Bill on one side and the handover from one political dynasty to his trusted lieutenant on the other. Earlier today we had the BOJ signalling No Change to current policy as the new PM Suga completes his first few days in the role. The BOE has just published their statement¹ and minutes from their latest meeting, and again it’s no change across the board, (excuse the pun), although the spectre of negative interest rates in the UK is more firmly “in the toolbox” than ever before. The BOE continues to negotiate the tricky ground around monetary policy with the backdrop of deteriorating UK-EU relations and the likelihood of PM Johnson overseeing a very limited trade deal with the EU, if one is agreed at all. The Brexit endgame showdown is very much “in-play”.BOE highlights include – “stands ready to adjust monetary policy”, and to“keep under review the range of actions” – taken as a nod to possible negative rates next year with the statement that the MPC has been briefed on the BoE’s plans to explore how a negative bank rate could be implemented effectively. It also “does not intend to tighten monetary policy until there is clear evidence that significant progress is being made in eliminating spare capacity and achieving the 2% inflation target sustainably.”Cable continues to rotate around 1.2900 today, whilst EURGBP jumped from 0.9090 to 0.9150 and GBPJPY plunged to 135.00 a level not seen since July 20, some 42 trading days ago.Always trade with strict risk management.
