Forex trading is one of the most desired skill yet it poses so many challenges. Not only do you have to master your trading strategy and understanding, you have to master and control your human emotions and urges which is no easy task. The human element is the one which poses the most problems when it comes to trading and some have come to the conclusion that it is best to leave the trading up to a robot instead of doing the trading yourself.
Robot trading refers to coding a program with instructions on how and when to trade. In this program you list rules and stipulations that govern how the program will determine when to execute or end a trade. These robots remove the human element out of the picture when trading as the robot will not trade with human emotions. Of course it is implied that one must have a good understanding of programing and programing languages before you start, so a good programing background can be of use here. You must also be aware of the different indicators which will be used by your robot and how these indicators work together. You can go the long route of learning how to code yourself, or you can hire a programmer to write the code for you. There are some vendors out there who can sell you ready made trading robots as well, you just have to look for a reputable robot with good results.
You can either use the robot to trade for you without intervention from you the trader, or you can program a robot that helps you identify trading opportunities and manage your risk so you will still have to execute the trades yourself but the robot will perform some aspects of the trading process which you want done for you, e.g. risk management.
Whether you will be programing one yourself or purchasing a ready made robot, it is advisable that you find a broker which has small fixed spreads with exceptional execution speeds.
