FXCM just released its pricing for coding your EAs and indicators which is pretty cool as they should have enough know-how to do it quickly and efficiently.
If you remember more than a year ago I published that FXCM had a similar plan when they were offering to help you develop your strategies and also potentially introduce you to capital, I guess that plan didn’t work well enough as now they are offering this program. The price is pretty cheap if you think of it and I know a few traders who’d like someone to code their strategies but didn’t know how to do that themselves.
Of course there is the other side of this: people might be reluctant to share their ‘secret’ strategies with others, especially with brokers. For FXCM this can be a win-win though – sell additional service and potentially know how good a given strategy is and then know how to deal with it…
New York, July 14, 2010—FXCM Holdings LLC, (www.fxcm.com), a global leader in online forex and CFD trading,* is now offering Programming Services at fixed prices.
- Simple MT4 indicator coding is $300.
- Advanced MT4 strategy and indicator coding is $600.
Programming Services, which FXCM introduced last year, is a unique, in-house resource that builds automated trading strategies and technical indicators to client specifications. If a client can describe what they want their strategy or indicator to do, FXCM Programming Services can code it. And now, with this new pricing adjustment, it’s more convenient than ever for clients to implement their own customized trading strategies and indicators.
Leveraging over a decade of forex market experience and expertise, FXCM Programming Services codes custom strategies and indicators for clients in multiple programming languages, across several trading platforms and signal packages, including MetaTrader 4,† Strategy Runner, Ninja Trader, MCFX, and FXTrek. Moreover, with the upcoming release of FXCM Strategy Trader, FXCM’s first proprietary automated trading platform, Programming Services will program all automated systems for Strategy Trader at no extra charge.
At its core, FXCM Programming Service was developed to not only enhance automated trading throughout the retail trading industry, but to also eliminate the frequently contentious distance between programmers and brokers.
“Often, when traders have an issue with their automated strategy, they are stuck between their programmers, who blame broker execution, and their brokers, who blame the programmers’ code,” says Luke Quinn, FXCM Programming Specialist. “With the advent of FXCM Programming Services, clients can now use programmers that know execution. We ensure our work is able to execute to the strategy specified by the client.”
