About us

MT4Coder.com was founded by people who have been trading live automated expert advisors since 2008 on the Metatrader 4 (MT4) platform (and Metatrader 5 (MT5) platform to a smaller degree). Having a background in IT and programming, it was not long after his initial forex trading that the main founder started programming expert advisors to trade the retail forex market when commercial expert advisors failed, time and time again.

After the NFA regulations came into effect in 2010 and then having numerous brokers fall by the wayside (i.e. mostly banned for failing these regulations in one way or another), and very few brokers left that weren't a direct conflict of interest with traders (i.e. dealing desk). it became apparent that some of these winning strategies and tools could no longer be used in the US retail forex market. Having your hands tied (i.e. NFA regulations) and not having a broker you feel comfortable with tends to lead to other things.

The goal of MT4Coder.com is to take some of these past proven winning strategies and tools and make them available to people who might be in markets where they will work. We still trade live in the USA. Therefore, another goal of this site is to make winning strategies for US investors too and make them available. That's not to say they won't work in other countries, but they will be more stringent in following NFA rules. The last goal of MTCoder.com is to simply write code for whatever you can design, whether it be EAs, indicators, scripts, dlls, etc.
