Welcome to Big Mike's Trading Forum.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

BMT is fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Quoting 
How does the Network function?
MQL5 Cloud Network is a distributed computing cloud network. It means that computing tasks are distributed among the scores of computers registered in that network.
In case you need to perform plenty of calculations that can be parallelized, you can enter the network and distribute your task among all free CPU capacities. You can find technical details in our Help section.

Who can take part?
MQL5 Cloud Network is open for everyone and does not require any preliminary registration. You only have to download MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester Agent and install tester agents on your computer.

How can I create my own distributed computing task?
A task is a program written in MQL5. Distributed computing is usually used to get a large amount of results by applying the same algorithm to different input data. The tester in the MetaTrader 5 client terminal allows to perform such multithreaded calculations in the Optimizing Expert Advisors mode.

What programming language is used in MQL5 Cloud Network?
You should write a program in MQL5 programming language used for trading strategies creation to utilize MQL5 Cloud Network. The language stands very close to C++ according to its syntax and execution speed. That advantage allows to explore it in timely manner and use algorithms from another high level languages.
MQL5 language is included into the MetaTrader 5 client terminal. The community web site provides a great amount of educational materials in the Articles section.

How safe is it to provide my computer for cloud computing?
Every testing agent works in its own virtual sandbox in MQL5 Cloud Network. That sandbox blocks any requests from an MQL5 program to the outside. All DLL calls and file events outside of the indicated directory are forbidden.

Pretty interesting stuff.

I would like to see more innovation in this area by other platforms. You can imagine the benefit if platforms would allow for distributed computing for complex tests like backtesting/optimization, each computer in the network could take a small piece of what needed to be backtested (say 1 week of data) and it would exponentially speed up the calculations.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Yes, MT4 is a great program in my opinion if it weren't for the server side plugins!

Use a reputable NDD broker.
