Most of the time, by automating our Forex trading strategies we discover that they do not work as expected. In this situation we get frustrated. We wondered what could have gone wrong if when we executed the operations manually the Forex system seemed to work well. Our calculations may not be correct, or perhaps the strategy only worked correctly for a period of time. But what if the error is in Forex programming?
Why is very important to select the right Forex programmer?
After a long time studying and setting your Forex trading strategy, you decide it is time to automate it because you want to program it as a MT4 robot. You are in a hurry. You want to see already the Forex trading strategy in action. Moreover, you want to hire the cheapest MT4 programmer trying to save until the last penny. Nothing can go wrong, doesn’t it?
When you receive your completed algorithm, you realize it is not working as it should and you are only getting losses. You try to contact your Forex programmer, but it takes several days to get a response or simply the MT4 coder does not reply your messages at all. After a considerable time, you must start over again with a new MetaTrader developer.
At the end, your cheaper Expert Advisor programmer has costed you the same or more money than if you would hire a more expensive professional MT4 programmer from the beginning. Even worse, you have lost motivation and trust on your Forex trading system.
Some people do not recover from these mishaps and decide not to move forward without even knowing if their trading strategy is good or not. After all, it would be sad not to succeed because of a Forex programming error.
