I am currently working on writing my own bitcoin trading bot.  I just want to know, is it possible?

My latest version can only beat the market by a very narrow percent, assuming perfect market conditions.

I have one which is working very well. To code such a robot you need knowledge of three kinds:
- coding obviously (I did mine in PHP, will move it to Python/C++ soon)
- autotrading/hft trading
- algos

You mind giving me some good resources on how to learn this stuff?  Wikipedia hasn't been helping me that much :-(

At this time it's pretty tough as the value is almost flat. Before the Mtgox crash it was doing +100% per week.

Thanks for narrowing the spreads / reducing volatility / predicting the future.

Welcome to arbitrage / trading!

It most definitely is. I'm an algorithmic equities trader and there are definitely super easy opportunities in the BTC market right now.

johnvm can you give some basic algorithm examples on how this works? I've always been very curious how one is able to predict ups/downs in the stock market (and I guess btc now as well :: )

I mean, logging in by using the postbacks for when you normally log into the site?

e.g. Login here -> https://mtgox.com/users/login -> https://mtgox.com -> to buy/sell your coins.
