Paid for users on the Gold Plan get  in depth support and assistance/ templatesbasic advice get started advice and documentation structure delivered by drop box/ and data on the Platinum Plan we setup a server and a set of models/templates and mentor on how to approach/ backtest/ collate stats and  work on pre-production and sim/live trading models and and manage that process but it is always the trader who makes the decisions – we simply accelerate the learning curve and facilitate it all.

What is the Right Algorithmic Trading System Robot for me?

Over time – The right robot is one you have selected based on your direct experience and understanding:
You would have backtested, out of sample tested, traded in pre-production and selected for your style/ availability & capital
And you will have tracked all your systems/tests and collated all the data at all stages with notes so you understand what you tested in the past and why you arrived to the present – you will know which robot works when and why and you can match it to the current market phases and decide if its tenable to use etc
you will correlate it to market ranges/ volume/ trends and price cycles so you will know why and when to use it and when not to and you can have several – for example a breakout or a trend model and or mean reversions

The Tools are here for that: Automated trading

Getting Started:
we suggest starting with a simple robot – such as the MTDS SDK USAR – and understanding all the basic parameters – then moving to a MTu7 if required – MTU7 is a combination of MTDS7 + MTNTF7 signals indicators

GET STARTED with MTDS7
