If the conditions are met, place an order to open a position (long or short) or close a position 4. Repeat step 2, continue to stare at the market, assuming that the second step is to open a position, that is, to find the conditions for closing a position 5. If the conditions for closing a position are met, close the operation, calculate profit and loss accounting to complete a cycle of transactions 6; 5 steps 7. If not trading, exit the foreign exchange client  Second, the machine manipulation process  Based on the above analysis, we already know that a complete intelligent trading system (commonly known as EA) in operation after the basic functions that must be achieved, is the above manual operation of 1-5 steps which is the basic working process of intelligent trading system, so the working principle of intelligent trading system is by the programmer with the help of a computer programming language, by writing program trading instructions to simulate the behavior of human traders to place orders to achieve the process of automatic machine trading the main execution process can be divided into: stare - > open positions - > stare again - > close positions, so the cycle of execution process  on the platform that supports automatic machine trading, the current foreign exchange market Popular on the MetaQuotes companys MT4 platform, because this platform is embedded in a MQL4 language, which provides access to server-side data and can carry out trading operations interface, program traders can write their own automatic trading system according to their own trading strategies, so as to achieve the automatic trading of machines, both to reduce the workload of humans and to overcome human But the current EA development, still in the early start-up phase, some still have defects, but I believe that with the development of technology, automatic machine trading will eventually gradually replace the human manual operation will then give traders a new choice  Third, the relevant MQL language knowledge  In order to achieve machine operation, and then look at the required MQL4 language related to the Knowledge:   1. master the basic syntax of the MQL4 language and the composition of the program, and the running process  For the syntax part, please refer the reader to the relevant information, which is omitted here  Regarding the composition of the program, for an intelligent trading system EA program: the main three functions are:   init(): the initialization function, responsible for program variables and data initial input; only once when the program is called in, generally do not need to rewrite the content  deinit (): counter-initialization function, responsible for the program exit, the data from memory clear; only once when the program exit, execute, generally do not need to rewrite the content  start (): start function, that is, the main function of the program, responsible for the EA program all transaction execution process, in fact, he is an EA transaction management and execution function every certain time, generally within a few seconds, executed once, that is, cyclic execution, until the program is terminated when it exits  running process: after starting EA, the programs INTI () start executing once, --> then START () cyclic execution ---> finally exit EA when deinit() is executed once  2. mql4 with trading-related trading functions:   open function:   intOrderSend(stringsymbol,intcmd,doublevolume,doubleprice,intslippage, doublestoploss,doubletakeprofit,voidcomment,voidmagic,voidexpiration,voidarrow_color)  This function is mainly applied to open positions and pending transactions  parameters:  symbol -currency pair cmd-purchase method volume-purchase lots price-close price slippage-maximum allowable slippage stoploss-stop loss level takeprofit-win level comment-notes text magic-order specified code can be used as user specified identification code expiration-order valid time (pending orders only) arrow_color-arrow color on the chart if the parameter is missing or exists CLR_NONE price value will not be drawn in the chart  Close function:  boolOrderClose(intticket,doublelots,doubleprice, intslippage,voidColor)  the order to close the operation if the function succeeds, the value returned is true if the function fails, the value returned is false to get detailed error information, see GetLastError() function  parameters:   ticket - order number lots - lots  price-closing price slippage-maximum number of points Color-chart marker color If the parameter is missing, CLR_NONE value will not be drawn in the chart  OrderModify function:  boolOrderModify(intticket,doubleprice, doublestoploss,doubletakeprofit,datetimeexpiration,voidarrow_color)  for the previous open or pending order to modify the characteristics if the function succeeds, the value returned is TRUE if the function fails, the value returned is FALSE to get the detailed error information, see GetLastError() function  parameters:   ticket-order number price-closing price stoploss-new stop level takeprofit-new win level expiration-pending order valid time arrow_color-allowed in the chart for stop/win If the parameter is missing or there is a CLR_NONE value, it will not be displayed on the chart  Fourth, the source code of the trading process analysis  The following source code is a moving average based intelligent trading system code, the entire program is very simple but the EA function is very complete, to achieve a completely automated by the computer to place orders and close positions, the entire program only uses a START() function to achieve  program code analysis  see the relevant comments in the code  //+------------------------------------------------------------------+ //---- inputparameters externdoubleTakeProfit=20;

The conclusion of this paper  From the above analysis, we can know that the so-called EA, is a computer simulation The specific steps are as follows:   1. When the user opens the foreign exchange client program, by the client program to call the user in the system has been preset EA trading system program 2. Repeat step 2, continue to monitor the market, assuming that the second step is to open a position, that is, to find the conditions for closing a position 5. If the conditions for closing a position are met, close the position operation, calculate profit and loss accounting to complete a trading cycle 6. If you continue to trade, EA repeat 2-> 3-> 4-> 5 steps 7. Set to disable the EA, or exit the Forex client
