Hi guys, hi from Andrea Unger. Today, I’d like to focus on a very interesting question: do you need to be able to code, in order to build trading systems?

Listen to “I Can’t Code, Can I Build Trading Systems?” on Spreaker.

You probably think that you won’t be able to build trading systems unless you are a programmer. Well, I’m not a programmer, so how is it that I’m here?

The point is that to program a trading system is not as difficult as one may think. We are not here to program the NASA computers or some Space Shuttle stuff. There is no rocket science in what we do. We just need to put some instructions together to get the code we want.

To learn these simple instructions is not that hard. In fact, there are some programming languages that are really easy to learn. Just to mention some of them, there are Easy Language, Power Language, Pro Real-Time scripts and many others. Obviously, if you want to program a trading system with Python or C#, then you will need some specific programming skills. However, these other languages are not that hard.

You don’t need to write the finest code in the world. It’s very likely that, when they see my codes, skilled programmers laugh at them because they are choppy or not very fast or whatever. But I’m not a high-frequency trader and I don’t need the fast execution of codes, so I don’t care.

I just need a code that works and does what I want it to do. I learned to do it, and it didn’t take that much. Also, I work with many friends who did the same and, today, we are all able to code trading systems.

So, “I’m not a programmer” is not a valid excuse!

Ciao from Andrea Unger!

Andrea Unger here and I help retail traders to improve their trading, scientifically. I went from being a cog in the machine in a multinational company to the only 4-Time World Trading Champion in a little more than 10 years. I've been a professional trader since 2001 and in 2008 I became World Champion using just 4 automated trading systems. In 2015 I founded Unger Academy, where I teach my method of developing effecting trading strategies: a scientific, replicable and universal method, based on numbers and statistics, not hunches, which led me and my students to become Champions again and again. Now I'm here to help you learn how to develop your own strategies, autonomously. This channel will help you improve your trading, know the markets better, and apply the scientific method to financial markets. Becoming a trader is harder than you think, but if you have passion, will, and sufficient capital, you'll learn how to code and develop effective strategies, manage risk, and diversify a portfolio of trading systems to greatly improve your chances of becoming successful.
