Review of the robot constructor System Creator for MT4. Introduction
There are two options for developing an automated trading system: writing a code using a ready-made algorithm with input data and creating an Expert Advisor using constructors. The first option is easier, but you pay not only for creating the code, but also for its subsequent revision. You can optimize an Expert Advisor created on your own on the constructor for free as much as you like and you do not need to know the code.
System Creator is one of the best and most functional advisor constructors for MT4, with which you can create combined complex algorithms. The program is not easy, but the more interesting it is.
In this multi-part article series, you will learn about the following:
