FAQs for Automated Traders
Back to top
What factors should I consider when choosing an automated trading system?

When choosing an automated trading system, you should consider your own trading and investment goals. For example, if you are looking for a low risk investment, your automated FX trading system should be less aggressive which may have a lower potential return, but will match your personal risk profile. Once you have determined your own parameters, it is easier to select the system that matches your investment objectives.

How do trades move between the automated trading system and dbFX?

If you choose an automated trading system which runs on a commercially available charting package, you will be able to access pricing liquidity from dbFX. This can be split into four steps.

1. The charting package will receive live market prices from dbFX via a bridge. Based on these market rates, your trading system will generate trade orders to dbFX at the appropriate times.

2. A technology bridge will interpret the trade orders from your trading system to dbFX, providing a link between the two.

3. dbFX will receive your trade requests and execute your orders.

4. The charting package receives the executed orders and continues to monitor the trading system as applicable.

How should I evaluate an automated trading system?

You should evaluate the system by completing a thorough back testing of the leverage used, the swings in profits and losses, consideration of the maximum draw downs and profitably of the trading system after all costs, including any commissions, have been paid.

What resources can I access online to view and compare the performance of automated trading strategies?

There are web sites and FX providers that offer access to a variety of automated trading strategies. However, these sites typically charge an added commission. You should therefore look at the profitability of these systems after commissions have been paid and check exactly what services are provided, including the costs involved, and whether they truly meet their investment objectives. You should also be cautious trading on multiple automated trading strategies that they do not conflict with one another.

What system configurations are required to carry out automated FX trading?

If you are executing systems over a charting package, you should test the full end-to-end trade execution response time with a few small trades before starting to fully trade. The configurations of providers may involve three separate parties: the charting package, a link or bridge to the forex provider, and the forex provider providing the liquidity. You should fully understand which function each party provides and ensure that each function works smoothly with the other.

High volume traders who program directly to a forex providers API will expect smooth and efficient trade execution. When testing your systems, you should include a live test to ensure you have the appropriate response time and speed of execution.

What tools are available for an investor to develop and back-test their own strategies?

More advanced traders who have programmed to an API can obtain historical data from their forex provider and back-test their programs. dbFX offers several APIs, including the market standard FIX connection. As with any back-testing, you are only simulating the results and can not account for all factors influencing execution, such as slippage on stop orders. Consequently, you should understand that results from back-testing are not completely indicative of future results.
