RoboForex has embraced the evolving landscape of the algorithmic trading industry, launching new trading robots in its R Trader Platform. These will enable users to create their own unique robots, with opportunities to backtest and deploy complex trading strategies.
RoboForex’s latest development will look to empower traders, even those with little or no programming skill. Users can harness a compilation of free information regarding the market, as well as interactive financial charts and other resources, to create their own robots. R Trader is based on UMSTEL solutions, a fintech company that is developing a web-based multi-asset trading platform.

The integration of trading robots directly into the R Trader Platform constitutes one of RoboForex’s more innovative upgrades in recent months. Indeed: “The algorithmic trading industry is constantly developing, and the volume of transaction that are performed using robots is on the rise year after year. Even now, we can see that our clients are very interested in trading robots,” explained Kiryl Kirychenka, Product Manager at RoboForex.
What can you build?
Of note, R Trader-based trading robots builder will be made available for all RoboForex clients for free, accessible in both real and demo accounts. In particular, all developed strategies may be backtested based on historical data, via a robust database extending back to 1970.
Furthermore, the new upgrade will give clients improved risk management, due in large part to better monitoring of unrealized P/L (float) for each launched strategy. Users will be able to craft automated strategies for more than 8,700 trading instruments, including American and German stocks along with indices, currency pairs, and others.
Mr. Kirychenka commented on the integration: “In the past, we had some experience with trading algorithms in StrategyQuant platform, but our builder is more complicated and variable. After a while, we realized that there was a stable demand, which allowed us to switch to a simpler ‘cloud’ solution. R Trader platform, which combines a convenient robots builder and access to a great deal of different trading instruments (stocks, indices, Forex, ETFs) in the same web interface, is exactly the thing that can really ‘shake’ the market.”
