What is Automated Trading?

The question is asked quite often, What is automated trading? Automated trading is using computer algorithms or computer models to develop the entry and exit points for a trading system. An automated trading program can take the emotion out of the equation and force discipline. One needs to test their automated trading program and truly believe in it. Otherwise they will not follow it. An automated trading program is the cornerstone of consistent trend following and compounding money over time.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. The risk of loss in trading futures contracts, commodity options or forex can be substantial, and therefore investors should understand the risks involved in taking leveraged positions and must assume responsibility for the risks associated with such investments and for their results. You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources.
