The Current Trend, Demand and Opportunity

One of the most dynamic and lucrative businesses today is the currency market with an average daily transactions of $4 trillion a day. Thousands to millions of dollars are being made or lost all around the globe. Algorithmic trading is becoming a popular way of trading among individual and institutional traders. In 2004, only 2% of FX trading was algorithmic. In 2010 that number changed to 45%. This is an exciting era of opportunity for those who innovate towards algorithmic trading.

Our services include creation of Automated Trading System (Expert Advisor), custom-built Technical Indicators and scripts (plug in).

Target Market

Everyone who is trading the FX and Commodities market and using the Metatrader Trading Platfrom 4 will be benefited by this system.

Revenue Generation Model

The company source of income will be twofold:
Firstly, the company will develop the "expert advisor" and sell it online and off-line through contacts. The end product will be sold at a price of $300 - $700 depending on the type and profitability of the system.

Secondly, we will offer MQL programming services, so that if a trader has their own strategies but has no knowledge on MQL programming, we will offer our customized coding service at a price that will start from $400 and depend on the complexities of the strategies the client wishes to apply.
