Automated Trading With Mt4 Programming

  • Posted on August 27, 2017 at 7:41 pm

Meta Trader 4 is a software application that helps brokers and the general public to trade currencies. It is a charting & trading tool combined into one and allows the user to visualize charts, analyze the market, and eventually place orders, as well. It also has a built in communications tool so that the broker can inform the client of the latest news, analysis, and other messages. This makes it convenient and cost effective as e-mail or phone messages do not need to be exchanged. What makes this software so useful is the fact that an MT4 programmer can program it to write individualized trading strategies.

The basic MT4 programming is done in a language called MQL4 which stands for MetaQuotes Language and the four is the version number. The MQL is similar to C but has a number of built-in functions that allow MT4 programming to automate analysis with ease. Someone with prior knowledge of C can easily write programs in MQL. MetaQuotes is actually the name of the Russian company that built the system. An MT4 programmer can create expert advisors, custom indicators, or scripts in the system.

Expert Advisor is included in MT4 programming and automates the trading deals for the user. This means that it stops them, cancels them, or replaces these orders, depending on the instructions written into program. Custom Indicator is another program which allows the use of technical indicators and the script program executes a single function. Scripts are held only one time and not by ticks.

The MetaTrader Client Terminal is the one most people are interested in and use most frequently. It is a freeware that can be downloaded into the computer directly online and supports automated trading. A demo needs to be opened or there has to be a live account through a broker if trading is to be conducted. When the need arises, an MT4 programmer can be hired to write programs into the system so the individual strategies can be carried out by the software.

The MetaTrader Mobile and Smartphone are not freeware; they need to be purchased. But with their addition, a trader is free to trade from anywhere, even when they are on the move, provided there is a good internet connection. Finally, there is the MetaTrader MultiTerminal which is a more specialized tool. It allows money managers with multiple trading accounts to carry out trades on the same platform. Automated trading is not supported on this yet.

MetaTrader is a very powerful tool that both experts and beginners like to use. It has the convenience of built-in strategies for the novice, while the option to write personal strategies make it practical for the expert. Being a freeware for the end user, it is accessible to everyone with equal ease.

The Most Frequently Used Domain Ending On The Internet Today

  • Posted on August 27, 2017 at 1:09 pm

Sure, everyone thinks of .COM when they’re looking to buy a domain name, but the problem is that most of the good ones are taken. A lot of the big registrars are marketing other top level domains like .INFO, .ME, .WS (for website) or now, .CO (for COmpany or COrporation) as alternatives.

But just how popular are those domains anyway? Is it worth getting the .NET or the .ORG if the .COM you want is already taken? Will people take you seriously if your business website ends with some obscure extension? (like .TK which you can get for absolutely free.)

Is it worth getting a domain hack (where you use other domain extensions to spell your domain name)?

Del.icio.us is a classic example of a domain hack which uses .US for the States. (Del.icio.us now points to Delicious.com).

More and more country codes are getting used as alternatives to .COM domain endings. For example, people use .ME (Montenegro) for personal sites. Several radio and music sites use .AM (Armenia), .FM (Federated States of Micronesia), .CD (Congo) and .DJ (Djibouti).

We used Google as a benchmark to see how popular certain domain extensions were. Sure, the numbers change based on which Google data center you use and when you do the search, but you get an idea for which domain extensions are more popular: There are 14 billion .COM domain names listed in Google and around 230 million .INFO domain names. Does it really matter if the numbers are off by a couple of million in this case?)

Here are 6 things to think about when choosing a domain extension.

6. There are over 33 billion (33,706,342,951) domain entries showing up in Google (Aug 2010)

5. Today, the top 3 generic domains are .COM (14.5 billion), .ORG (1.5 billion) and .NET (1.4 billion)

4. The top 3 country domain names are .JP Japan (3.3 billion), .KR South Korea (1.0 billion), and the .UK United Kingdom (just under 1 billion)

3. ICANN, the non-profit organization that manages .COM domain names, publishes a list of .COM domain name registrars every month. As of April 2010, there are 882 accredited registrars selling .COM domains.

2. The number one registrar in the world (in terms of the number of .COM domains registered) is GoDaddy. They have registered over 25 million .COM domains. (The second place registrar is eNom which has only 7 million .COM domains registered.)

1. In looking at the Top 10 .COM registrars in the world, the average price to register a .COM domain is $21.44 USD per year. The most expensive registrar charges $35.00 per year and the best price (including promotional sales) for a .COM domain is $1.99 per year.

Feel free to speculate on where the internet is heading, and what the next popular domain name extension will be.

And you’ll have to decide whether you want to struggle to find an acceptable .COM domain name, or whether you can live with something creative or SIL.LY
