MQL5 Wizard makes development of Expert Advisors even easier!

In late October 2010, as part of the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal, the MQL5 Wizard was released. This wizard is designed for automatic generation of an Expert Advisor code. With MQL5 Wizard, knowledge of programming languages is no longer a prerequisite for creating trading robots. Earlier it really was an impassable obstacle to creation of trading strategies, but the release of the MQL5 Wizard changed the situation radically. With the new Wizard, the programming experience is not required - the application will do all the necessary work to create an Expert Advisor.

MQL5 Wizard makes development of Expert Advisors even easier!

The main advantage of the Wizard is its convenience. The program allows to significantly simplify the process of trading robots development, creating different Expert Advisor modules for you. All you need is set the required parameters and select the necessary components - and the MQL5 Wizard will do the rest. The creation of trading robots has never been so fast and simple. Only four clicks - and the Expert Advisor trading according to your strategy is ready!

MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester!

Today we have released the beta version of MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester. This program is the integral part of the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal being designed for the purposes of testing and optimization of MQL5 Expert Advisors.

With the testing you can assess the qualities of your Expert Advisor on history data before launching it in real trading. Optimization allows choosing the most profitable parameters for your Expert Advisor making it a real efficient one. The Strategy Tester is an indispensable tool for developers of Expert Advisors. It is almost impossible to develop a profitable an error-free Expert Advisor without the tester.

As compared to the tester in MetaTrader 4, the new MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester is a more powerful and accurate tool. It has obtained the new function of distributed optimization that will be useful in work with compound Expert Advisors. Besides that, the Strategy Tester offers efficient testing of multi-currency Expert Advisors.

"The Strategy Tester is the last component from the set of required tools for efficient development of Expert Advisors. This set also includes the MQL5, MetaEditor, debugger and execution module in the MetaTrader 5 terminal. The absence of a tester was the last obstacle to the wide possibilities provided by the MQL5 environment. We hope that together with the release of MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester, the number of new MQL5 Expert Advisors will sharply increase", - the senior developer of MetaTrader 4/5 terminals and MQL4/5 said.

Automated Trading Championship 2009 Will Not Be Conducted

Dear clients,

Organization and conduction of the Automated Trading Championship is a very complicated and cost-consuming project. For the maintenance of this competition our company needs to involve tens of specialists from different departments. Among persons involved in the conduction of Championships there are developers of trading platforms and specialists of the software testing department.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Platform

As you might know, now we are engaged in the development of a new trading platform MetaTrader 5; its release is planned for this year. All our forces are now concentrated on the platform release, and soon it will be presented to you for beta testing. Focusing all our resources on this release, we don't want to be distracted from this target.

Besides, the new platform will contain a new environment for the development of trading strategies - MQL5 IDE. We find it more reasonable to conduct the next Championship using the new language. However, it is unlikely that potential participants will manage to learn MQL5 and write new Expert Advisors in it. Due to this the number of potential Participants may be much lower - this is sure to have a negative effect on the attraction of the Championship.

Taking into account all this we decided not to conduct the ATC this year. Instead of this we will concentrate our efforts on the release of the new MetaTrader 5 platform and next year we will conduct the Championship for Expert Advisors written in MQL5.

Esse desenvolvimento não estava à venda.

Assim começou o desenvolvimento de um novo sistema comercial, o TeamWox. Ele absorveu todo a nossa dedicação e experiência no campo de criação e uso de sistemas de trabalho em grupo (groupware). Este sistema é um instrumento simples, cômodo e, acima de tudo, funcional para gerenciar qualquer empresa moderna.

Sistema para gerenciar a empresa, TeamWox

No início de 2009, o sistema TeamWox fez a sua aparição no mercado, foi assim como começou a venda livre e difusão do sistema. A versão básica do TeamWox inclui o serviço gratuito de telefonia VoIP, o gerenciamento eletrônico de documentos, relatórios automatizados, uma única base de clientes com funil de vendas, bem como a integração entre os sites da empresa e o módulo de suporte técnico.
