Dukascopy Smiles to Programmers, Launches Visual JForex

Swiss forex broker Dukascopy Bank SA  has released a unique tool for fans of automated trading – the Visual JForex, which, as its name suggests, allows programming in a more friendly, graphical way. Thanks to Visual JForex, you can now program your own automated trading strategy and use it on one of the most popular retail trading platforms out there – Dukascopy's JForex.

 
If you'd like to use this tool, you may want to have look at some of the video tutorials on Dukascopy's website first – they are pretty informative and you'll get an idea on what to do in about 20 minutes. Of course, some programming expertise is desirable. The next step is to simply click the “Launch Visual JForex” button and then the working environment opens. That's right - no nasty downloads, it's all web-based. 
 
Now, those of you who have ever had to deal with the programming environment of MS-DOS will understand my enthusiasm regarding the graphical user interface (GUI), which instead of a blinking black computer screen that one has to fill with numbers and letters, offers windows, icons and menus. And it's just so beautiful and intuitive! You can start dragging operators and variables straight into the so-called Repositorium – the panel on which the program is kind of “painted”. 
 
When your program is ready, you can see how the processing runs with the help of the “flow” feature – it shows via highlights in various colors how the algorithm works. There is also an option to stop the running of a strategy, correct it and debug it. 
 
My personal favorite option is the one that allows decomposing already existing strategies and using the components for building new strategies or performing some checks on the components themselves. It may seem like nothing special for you, but this is a real bugger for a programmer who has to deal with command line interface (CLI).
 
The team behind JForex claims that one can compose a whole program after a few mouse clicks, that is - several hours at most. 
 
By the way, you can test the successfulness of your strategies at the monthly JForex Strategy Contest, which comes with a prize pool amounting to $15,000. Cool, ha?
 
The launch of Visual JForex adds to efforts by Dukascopy to popularize the JForex trading platform and the last months have been particularly hectic in that respect. In March, the company signed partnership deals with Integral Menkul, Forex FS and AVA Trade to make the platform accessible to their clients. 
 
The Visual JForex seems to be an elegant and smart addition to the platform. I don't know about you, but I can say that I've found my new favorite toy and I intend to play with it.
