Hey folks,
I'm in bitcoin since over a year for now. And a exessive trader from Dezember till April. During this time I learned a lot about technical trading. But I also learned that it cost much time ride all the waves the correct way, and I lost a lot's of my private life during this exessive trading time. (I guess lot's of you guy know what I'm talking about ;-))
That was the point I decide to get into the bot trading scene. :-)
....but I don't want to use one of the bots you can buy, when I don't understand the hole code. And as soon as I understand the hole code I'm able to create/optimize an bot the way I'd like to trade.

Is there anyone who can help me learning all I need to know about programming bots. ...and I'd like to use https://cryptotrader.org/ to build my bots. (if theres a point why I should not use their service please tell me)

....ah and for those of you think, why should I help a guy just to get more money: The most money I earn I won't just use it for myself. I prefer to earn money to be able to fund/support social projects.

You're interesting about building coins for justice or you want to become a profitable trader to be self-supporting and for supporting social projects?

If you want to learn about computer science in general there are lots of good online courses from coursera and edX available for free online.

....ah and I'm interesting in learning MQL4 to build my own bot able to trade at mt4 (forex). For this I found an easy written tutorial, it called "MQL4 Course by Coder's Guru".

Search for the basis of your bot code on github. After this building the code for your own strategy is quit easy. Built a bot that does not trade to often, because paying the spread and transaction fees will eat your profit away.

Start by writing/obtaining an api to communicate with the exchange you wish to trade on. Then implement your strategy/s using the api. If you need a database something simple like sqlite will probable do.

I am in the process of developing a trading platform. It has a host of facilities for communicating with exchanges, reading/writing to databases, etc.  which are accessed through scripts and plugins.

Unfortunately it is still some months from even being in an unstable beta state.

if your a noob coder, you can not make this bot...

your going to make a bug that will sell all your bitcoin or something

I wrote a java lib for various APIs, so he might get around the API implementation... Smiley

Try looking at courses on https://www.edx.org

You may want to focus on courses that have you write alot of code.  Also, try to focus on a language that you want to use (C, C++, Java, etc)

Steep learning curve.

Easier to use pre-existing one and pay someone to make a customizable module.
