In the first part of the thesis (Chapter 1 – 4) I introduce the Foreign Exchange Market and the basics of the high-risk trading on it. Speculation with technical indicators get increased focus. A few indicators are discussed in details.
In the second part of the document (Chapter 5) I introduce my chosen trading platform, MetaTrader 4. I recite its advantages, disadvantages, flaws. Being highly customizable and having an in-built programming language are great benefits, while the limits of the tester and its sometimes strange behaviour negatively affects my opinion of MetaTrader.
Finally in the third part (Chapter 6) takes place the software developed by me, which intends to replace the Strategic Tester of MetaTrader. The Chapter consists of four subsections: the description of the database, the documentation of the software, the way of conversion from MetaTrader’s language to Java and a brief assessment.
The database is Microsoft Access 2007 (32 bit), the development environment is NetBeans 6.7 (Java version: 188.8.131.52 - 32 bit).
