Algorithmic Forex Trading

#1
Hello everyone

I am a bit new to forex trading.
I started trading in this domain just a month back. Earlier I traded in stocks.
I have heard of an Algorithmic Forex Trading strategy to maximize profits. Could anyone tell me more about it?
I believe it takes the history of currency pair into consideration. I'd like to be guided as how to use it to get the best results!

Thanks
Alan

Hi,
Algorithmic trading has started to make its presence felt in the FX market and is expected to become adopted by many participants. However there is still much confusion about how algorithmic trading is defined and differs from traditional automated trading. Broadly speaking Algorithmic trading can be split into four areas:

Auto-hedging – where hedging orders are automatically generated according to a formula for dynamically managing risk levels.

Statistical trading – where orders are generated according to differentials in relative values or according to algorithms devised around macro portfolio models.

Liquidity Access – where a trading solution has been designed to improve access to multiple trading venues.

Algorithmic execution – where trading styles are automated to control and finesse trade execution.

But I stick to automated trading which provides me good result with Greenvault FX .
