"But I don't know how to code!"

This is an objection I often hear from those who would like to become proficient systematic traders.

The truth is that not all coding languages are the same and some in particular allow you to write what a system should do in a very simple and easy way.

Find out in this video how I myself, not being a programmer, and many other people with no experience in this regard, managed to build their systems and make money.

Transcription

Hi from Andrea Unger.

I can't do this, I'm not a programmer!

This is a claim that I often listen to: "I cannot become a systematic trader because I can't program software!"

The good news is that I can't either, I'm not a programmer, I have no specific knowledge of computers, yet you see, systems are running here on my back, completely automated and the good news is that all the instructions to let them run, were written by myself, not being a programmer.

Why?

Because you don't really need specific skills.

We are not programming any software for the Space Shuttle to go to Mars or wherever, no!

We are using languages that are pre-built for trading.

Programming a Trading System: The Real Obstacle

There are still languages like MQL for Metatrader which are complicated for non-programmers.

So if you are not a programmer and you face MQL, you see a number of lines in your code which may drive you crazy, 200 lines to write a simple code!

Obviously, in 200 lines you can forget something if you are not a programmer.

While if you can write the same in five or ten lines, it's less probable you miss something.

Is it possible?

Programming a Trading System: The Solution

Yes, I use Easy Language from TradeStation or Power Language from Multicharts, which is more or less the same, and these are really easy.

I'm not claiming that today you don't know anything and tomorrow you'll know everything, no!

This is impossible, you still need to study, you need to understand, you need to train and to do whatever you need to know, to gain that knowledge that is necessary to build systems, but it is not the real obstacle to becoming a systematic trader.

It is not, because I've done it, if I've done it, everybody can believe me and it didn't take me that long.

The Benefit of Having the "One Year Target" Program

Furthermore, at Unger Academy, we have a specific program inside the One Year Target program, which addresses the language and how to interact with a machine.

We have a Facebook group where you can interact with us for any doubt, we have weekly coaching calls where you get all the answers to your questions, your technical questions.

So I mean, more than this you can't really find to learn what you need.

You won't be the next programmer for N.A.S.A., but you will be able to build your trading systems, considering also that you have scripts, pre-built scripts on which you have just to add something.

I mean, there is really a lot.

If you want to know more about all of this and if you want to understand how you can become a trader, what you can find in the One Year Target program, what you can find in the Unger Academy, what you would expect from yourself, for your expectation, for your desires, you can book a free call with one of our tutors.

You can find the link here and there you can really discuss your idea of trading, how that fits with our world of trading, and what can happen to yourself if you go further in your studies.

It's a good investment of your time, so I think you can really think about that.

Register, it's free, totally free and you can get many answers.

Maybe, later on, we meet again.

Ciao from Andrea Unger.

Andrea Unger

Andrea Unger here and I help retail traders to improve their trading, scientifically. I went from being a cog in the machine in a multinational company to the only 4-Time World Trading Champion in a little more than 10 years.

I've been a professional trader since 2001 and in 2008 I became World Champion using just 4 automated trading systems. 

In 2015 I founded Unger Academy, where I teach my method of developing effecting trading strategies: a scientific, replicable and universal method, based on numbers and statistics, not hunches, which led me and my students to become Champions again and again.

Now I'm here to help you learn how to develop your own strategies, autonomously. This channel will help you improve your trading, know the markets better, and apply the scientific method to financial markets.

Becoming a trader is harder than you think, but if you have passion, will, and sufficient capital, you'll learn how to code and develop effective strategies, manage risk, and diversify a portfolio of trading systems to greatly improve your chances of becoming successful.
