The book is offered to a wide readership interested in developing automated trading programs for MetaTrader 4 Clent Terminal. At the same time, however, thanks to the new terms introduced in the book, it will be also interesting for experienced developers of automated trading systems.

Sergey Kovalyov, the book author, thinks that «the development of applications for MetaTrader 4 Client Terminal requires the knowledge of MQL4. This textbook will equip you with useful knowledge about how to create your own Expert Advisors, scripts and indicators and, with their help, turn your ideas, your algorithms of profitable trading, into reality.»

Nowadays, the advantages of automated trading, a twenty-four-hour management of large amounts of data and complete automation of the trading process, are easy to see. Besides, an automated trading strategy doesn't include the human factor in trading altogether. For example, the recently held Automated Trading Championship 2007 demonstrated the opportunities provided by programming of traders’ own strategies. The leader of the Championship increased his initial deposit 13 times within just 3 months! The books tells about how to write your own trading strategy using MQL4.
