Technical analysis algorithmic trading

Algorithmic trading – is a kind of market place marketing meaning automatical trade execution with the help of marketing robot within a framework of a definite algorithm, inserted in it by a dealer-in-goods.


Marketing robots

A computer program with inserted in it marketing algorithm executing dealers-in-goods and making other operations by itself in a stock market.


Kinds of robots:

  • Fully automated robot asking for no permission to open a trade. At the same time, the program takes into account all the market risks and possible losses.


Kinds of algorithmic strategies:

  • Execution strategy means buying/selling of large number of assets at a Volume-Weighted Average Price, maximally close to the price of the last executed trade. It gives a chance to a wide extent keep costs connected with positions‘opening/closing down and is mainly used by large-caps of a money market such as brokerage companies and  investment funds.

Marketing robot making

Firstly, it is necessary to download a special app having so called “algorithms' constructor”. Modern automatical marketing systems are very handy and even people not well-versed in programming can make a sound marketing system.



Algotrading advantages:

  • High accuracy –the robot uses in marketing the execution sequence you will insert in it.
  • Opportunity to get profit since its first days  Even newcomers who got a marketing robot from more experienced colleges can make money in algotrading.
  • Operational readiness – the program can wait patiently for opportunity 24/7 and it will not affect the efficiency of its activity.

  • Flexibility and scalability –robots made by experienced dealers-in-goods can be used everywhere, in every market and stock exchange. Moreover, if necessary they may be used and improved making algorithms more ideal.


Algotrading disadvantages

  • Processing complexity. Complexity lies in the program construction. The market is unpredictable and there are few people ever successfully made an ideal algorithm.
  • Expensiveness – is important for the people who do not work out algorithms by themselves (for free), and buy them from more experienced colleges. If a robot is really good it will take much money to purchase it.
