4xlab.net in del.icio.us

Some pages have found their way into del.icio.us

The source code for the average true range indicator, my investorflix queue as well as the writeup on the channel breakout system were bookmarked.

see the 4xlab.net del.icio.us urls

Today I also suggested an entry to DMOZ.org in the section
Business / Investing / Commodities_and_Futures / Forex / Software /

The entry should look like this when published

4XLab.NET - Offers descriptions and source code for a forex trading simulator, mechanical trading systems and technical analysis indicators.

I am also getting ready to use the 4xlab google groups to send announcements to website members.

I have found the FxFisherman forex mechanical trading systems forums looking for a metatrader implementation of the STARC Bands (A moving average surrounded by two bands whose width is determined by a multiple of the Average True Range).

I have the code for the STARC bands implemented in the 4XLab.NET platform http://www.4xlab.net/cs/forums/17/ShowPost.aspx but I also wanted to see them in Metatrader. Their forums contained a MQ4 implementation.

Second CodeProject.com article

This week, I wrote the second article in the series:

Creating a Mechanical Trading System Part 2: Four Percent Trading System

This article takes a trading system straight from the 4xlab.net platform and enough of a gui and framework are wrapped around it to enable it to work. A working project is provided as well. The random walk algorithm is used to create the price data.
