Forex trading robots are popular tools that help traders automate their trading process. Also known as expert advisors (EAs) or bots, they may help people take advantage of market opportunities without having to sit for our in front of their terminal. This article will look at some of the top MT4 and MT5 trading bots you can use to trade in 2022.
How trading bots work
Trading robots are software that analyses charts, find opportunities, and then automatically executes trades. Some semi-automatic bots don’t execute trades directly, instead, they send an alert, and then a trader can execute the trade manually.
Many bots have inbuilt risk management tools like stop loss and take profit that limits substantial drawdowns. In addition, users can select the maximum lot size for the bot to use when executing both buy and sell orders.
Bots are built to mirror popular trading strategies in forex. For example, trend-following bots combine trend indicators like moving averages and Bollinger Bands. Similarly, some bots are designed to identify reversals while others use scalping, grid, and arbitrage strategies.
Most bots are compatible with MT4 and MT5, the two most popular software in forex trading.
Indeed, MetaQuotes, the developer of the software, has a large marketplace where users can read reviews and buy robots. According to its website, it has over 10,000 bots in the marketplace.
There are several benefits of using robots in forex trading. First, they can trade more forex markets at once. In addition, they can work for an extended period since the forex market is usually open 24 hours per day, five days a week. So, here are some of the best forex trading bots for 2022.
