The Next Generation of Automated Forex Systems

If you are a currency trader, you want the best forex trading system you can get. And an automated forex trading system that really gets the job done is very hard to find.

The internet has made it easy for anyone to get involved in forex trading. All you need is an internet connection and a forex broker account. Usually $2000 is the minimum amount necessary to open an account.

Forex trading accounts aren't allowed to carry debt balances, so you can't suffer the excessive losses that are possible in a hedge fund. Still you don't want to see your balance reduced to zero, so you want a trading system that protects trading capital and is automated so that it can take care of your money when you don't have the time, even when you are asleep.

An automated forex trading system is at work 24 hours a day, which is something no person can do. And it has another advantage over humans. It doesn't base trading decisions on emotions.

There are certain things you should look for when choosing an automated forex trading system. The best next-generation automated forex systems use technical indicators such as MACD, RSI, stochastics, Bollinger bands, etc. But they don't stop there. They also apply principles found in scientific theories such as Quantum Mechanics, Chaos Theory, Fractal Geometry and Wavelet Theory.

The system you choose should be able to combine all of these elements to give an overall picture of the market and tell you in what direction prices are moving in the short term and in the long term. It should be able to do this for any currency pair. It should be adaptable to your trading style and effective for different kinds of trades, such as intra-day swing trading, arbitrage trading, etc. And it should manage your capital with tools such as stop loss orders.

The automated forex system you choose should be able to filter out the noise and tell you where the lines of support and resistance are. It should be able to tell you when to take profits as well as when to get out of a position that has already lost money before the loss becomes excessive.

So the perfect automated forex trading system would combine three elements. It should exploit technical indicators and the latest scientific theories to determine market direction. It should manage risk by determining price targets and stop loss placements for every position. And it should eliminate emotions from trading. That's the easy part for computers. What you want is a system that you can set up and leave in place without any more input from you than turning on your internet connection. You will still be determining what pairs to trade, how long to stay in a position, and what you are comfortable with as far as profit and loss settings. As long as your internet connection is on, the system will take care of the rest.
