Setup and configure the broker server and login to your trading account to begin trading. One of the key features of this trading platform is programming capabilities, beside able to do charting, store historical price data and execute trades.

Expert Advisor

The core programming language is MQL4 or Metaquotes language 4 is a C program look a like programming language. Its comes with program function structure, variable declaration, operands, conditional checks, calling of technical indicator, time date function, math operations and other features. All files end with MQL format and are editable using the editor that comes with the trading platform. These are commonly call expert advisor and are used to run on MT4 trading account.

Create EA

Before you start, you have to code your trading strategy into programming codes MQL and compile with no error. Or you can purchase third party codes and use it to run on your trading account. You need to decide the time frame and open the currency chart of your choice after you login to your Forex trading account.
How to load EA

First you have to copy the MQL file (Expert Advisor) into your MT4 program folder "experts". Then run MT4 and it will automatically compiled the expert advisor and it will appear in your "navigator windows" under the "expert advisor" directory. Simply select the desire expert advisor and move over to your currency chart. (Click and drag). You will see the name of the expert advisor at the top right hand corner of your currency chart. And look out for a smiling face on the right. If you see a cross then you did not enable EA trading.

Enable Expert Advisor

MT4 comes with an option to disable or enable the expert advisor trading on the top middle panel. Click to disable or enable it. You may have to set some parameters at the "tool" tab into "option" menu and go to "Expert Advisor" tab. You will see a list of tick box to select. In more cases, tick "Enable Expect Advisor", tick "Allow live trading", tick "Allow DLL imports" and tick "Allow external experts imports". And leave the box empty for "Disable experts when account changed", empty for "Disable experts when profile change", empty for "Ask manual confirmation" and empty for "Confirm DLL function calls". With the above set up, you should see a smiling face at the top right corner of your currency chart. You call load as many EA you want. My recommendation is limited 8.

If you need to change the expert advisor due to bug or program update, simply click on the name of the expert advisor, choose modify and it will automatically open the metaeditor for you to make changes. Once all changes done, simply compiled the program and it will automatically update the copies that is attached to run on your currency chart.

From Publishers Weekly

Douglas, president of the seminar firm Trading Behavior Dynamics, focuses on the psychology of successful traders. Instead of offering specific strategies, he advises readers, "The first step on the to understand and completely accept the psychological realities of trading." It may be too abstract for some, but given trading's risks, this book could assist experienced investors willing to engage in self-reflection. (Jan.)

From the Inside Flap

Even the most astute, highly motivated, well-grounded traders can be crippled by counter-productive thinking that leads to poor decisions and trading errors.  They suffer from an inability to stay objectively focused or lack the necessary confidence to execute their trades properly.  Or they let mental contradictions and misconceptions about trading or the nature of the market rule their trades.

In this book the reader will learn that maximizing the trader's state of mind is the key to successful results.  Douglas teaches traders to think in terms of probabilities and to adopt the core beliefs necessary to assuming the "winner's mindset."  Traders in the "zone" don't need to know ~ and don't care ~ what the market is going to do next.  They know what they are going to do next.  And that makes all the difference.

From the Back Cover

"Although I consider Mark a close friend, I still feel privileged to write a review for a book that has made such a substantial contribution to the development and success of traders all over the world.  Trading in the Zone is not to be read and placed on the shelf with the rest of the "trading" books. You'll find like many traders that its place is on your desk as a companion.  And it's not just about trading.  Trading in the Zone will also help you approach your daily life in a more positive and insightful manner.  I continually recommend to the traders that I mentor to read at least three pages of Trading in the Zone a day. I've found it has the effect of transforming a person's thinking in ways that allow them to trade without the kind of fears that can cause them to make trading errors or generally get in the way of their own success."

"Trading in the Zone is a must read for any serious trader. It offers extensive insights into the development of the professional trader's mindset by giving the reader practical examples of what it takes to think and perform like a consistently successful trader."

A common denominator among most new traders is that, within six months of launching their new pursuit, they are out of money and out of trading.

From the Back Cover

"The Goal Is to Teach All Traders to Think with the Mindset of a Successful Trader..."
While successful trading requires tremendous skill and knowledge, it begins and ends with mindset. What do exceptional traders think when they purchase a quality stock and the price immediately plummets? How do they keep one bad trade from destroying their confidence--and bankroll? What do they know that the rest of us don't?
"Some trades are not worth the risk and should never be done."
High Probability Trading shows you how to trade only when the odds are in your favor. From descriptions of the software and equipment an exceptional trader needs to high probability signals that either a top or bottom has been reached, it is today's most complete guidebook to thinking like an exceptional trader--every day, on every trade.
"It's not how good you are at one individual thing, but it's the culmination of every aspect of trading that makes one successful."
Before he became a successful trader, Marcel Link spent years wading from one system to the next, using trial and error to figure out what worked, what didn't, and why. In High Probability Trading, Link reveals the steps he took to become a consistent, patient, and winning trader--by learning what to watch for, what to watch out for, and what to do to make each trade a high probability trade.
"Why do a select few traders repeatedly make money while the masses lose? What do bad traders do that good traders avoid, and what do winning traders do that is different? Throughout this book I will detail how successful traders behave differently and consistently make money by making high probability trades and avoiding common pitfalls..."--From the preface
Within 6 months of beginning their careers full of promise and hope, most traders are literally out of money and out of trading. High Probability Trading reduces the likelihood that you will have to pay this "traders' tuition," by detailing a market-proven program for weathering those first few months and becoming a profitable trader from the beginning.

High Probability Trading shows you how to know the difference between low and high probability situations, and only trade the latter. It goes far beyond simply pointing out the weaknesses and blind spots that hinder most traders to explaining how those defects can be understood, overcome, and turned to each trader's advantage.
While it is a cliché, it is also true that there are no bad traders, only bad trades. Let High Probability Trading show you how to weed the bad trades from your trading day by helping you see them before they occur.
