  • Forex Algorithmic Trading: A Practical Tale for Engineers (Publication)
    A few years ago, driven by my curiosity, I took my first steps into the world of Forex by creating a demo account and playing out simulations (with fake money) using the Meta Trader 4 trading platform. After a week of 'trading', I'd almost doubled my 'money'. Spurred on by my own success, I dug deeper and eventually signed up for a number of forums. Soon, I was spending hours reading about trading systems (i.e., rule sets that determine whether you should buy or sell), custom indicators, market moods, and more.
