I've been toying with the idea of somehow automating trades based on some rules and having the trade execute automatically on triggers of those technical indicators.
We've all ran backtest on our "strategy" and most of the time they yielded good results, otherwise why would we be trading? So rather than sitting infront of the computer all day waiting for the good entry/exit, is there a way to do it from a simple computer program that is linked to a broker?
Firstly, is this possible? If so, what brokers allows this?
Secondly, what level of programming skill is required to do this?
The benefits of this allows you to trade 24 hour markets. It takes away human emotions - especially taking a loss when it hits a SL or closing a winning trade without letting it run it's course. Set and forget and watch your balance sheet increase...
