Call  020 7638 6996  or email  newaccounts@guardianstockbrokers.com  to discuss opening a trading account.

Why use algorithmic trading?


Let the algorithm do the work. Once set up, your algorithm can trade around the clock without any intervention from you.


Improve your algorithm with historic data.


React quickly to extreme conditions such as major drops or increases in a given market. Algorithms allow you to programme a reaction in the unlikely occurrence of these events.

Remove human intervention

 Let the algorithms predetermined instructions decide when to trade rather than your emotions.

What is algorithmic trading?

Simply put algorithmic trading allows you to use computer code (whether it be your own or a 3rd party off the shelf solution) to trade automatically when certain pre-determined conditions are matched in the market.


Algorithmic trading tools are available from trusted 3rd party providers including ProRealTime, Metatrader 4 (MT4) as well assign native APIs.
