Expert Advisors

What is an Expert Advisor?

A Forex Expert Advisor (EA) is a flexible automated Forex trading solution that can be added to the most popular and user-friendly platform, MetaTrader 4. More specifically, an Expert Advisor is a type of software that can completely automate trading strategies on your behalf or send you alerts prompting you to act on a Forex trade, when certain conditions are met in the market.

An Expert Advisor for MetaTrader 4 is written in a special programming language called MetaQuotes Language (MQL4). Programs like MetaEditor, which is already pre-loaded onto Metatrader 4, use this language to help traders build Expert Advisors.

How do you create and trade using an Expert Advisor?

Forex Expert Advisors are easy to create. MetaTrader 4’s easy-to-use interface combined with the pre-loaded program MetaEditor, allow traders at any level of experience to easily and promptly create an Expert Advisor.

But to get you started, the VT MARKETS MetaTrader 4 platform has many templates and popular Expert Advisors already included in the platform.

Just be aware that most EAs require your MT4 platform to run 24 hours a day in order to continue automatically executing trades on your behalf. If you don’t want to use a 3rd party VPS provider, MT4 has a built in service that you can check out on our Free Forex VPS page.

How to Obtain an Expert Advisor Directly From MT4

Instead of going to a 3rd party website that you know you can’t trust, VT MARKETS offers the ability to obtain EAs in a way you can trust.

Gain easy and affordable access to peer reviewed EAs through the MT4 market tab. Browse literally 1000s of EAs from verified sources where payment to developers is made directly through your MQL4 account.

No longer do you have to worry about the hassle of setting up your EA. When you make a purchase through the market tab of your MT4 platform, the installation and setup is at the click of a button.
