Here is a new version of our first example robot, ported to the beta version of FXCM's new Strategy Trader automated trading platform. FXCM refer to "robots" as "Strategy Advisors", no doubt influenced by MetaTraders "Expert Advisors"!
If you want to experiment with it at the moment you'll need to need to apply to FXCM to become a beta tester first. You'll also need to open an FXCM demo account, and make sure hedging is disabled.
We actually had quite a lot of trouble getting this initial port working properly. One essential thing you need to do beforehand is to set up a dual one minute bar chart, showing the ask price at the top, and the bid price at the bottom. It should finish up looking something like this:
Once you've done that, compile our source code in the Strategy Language Editor, drag it onto the chart from the "Strategy Advisors" section of the "Navigation" pane, and start playing!
