EA Builder Review


Introduction -What is EA Builder?

The EA builder is a web-based application that provides a graphical interface for creating customized indicators and EAs. The application focuses on traders without any programming skills and it is compatible with MT4, MT5, and Tradestation. What is nice is that this app is 100% free for creating indicators, and you have to pay only if you wish to transform your indicators into fully functional Expert Advisors.

Creating an Expert Advisor (EA) Example

Here is an example of how to create a Forex Robot in 8 simple steps:

  • Step-1 Go to a ’New MetaTrader 4 Strategy’, open a new strategy, and name it
  • Step-2 Go to ‘Add condition’ (there are three available fields LEFT, MIDDLE, RIGHT) and enter some conditions for opening long trades
  • Step-3 Click the magic button to create the opposite conditions for a selling order (short trade)
  • Step-4 Do the exact opposite in order to close the trades (either long or short)
  • Step-5 Use the ‘Money Management’ tab to insert the lot size. The standard lot size is 1 standard lot (100,000 USD)
  • Step-6 Use the tab ‘Inputs’ and add more money management rules (if you wish)
  • Step-7 Add some alerts using the ‘Alerts’ tab
  • Step-8 The Expert Advisor is now ready, you can copy the source code at the last tab ‘Source’ and compile it directly on MT4

Negatives of EA Builder Review


Negatives of EA Builder Review

There is no crucial negative point for this system. We have used the system ourselves and we found it very easy to create our own technical analysis indicators for MT4. Nevertheless, in order to be fair these are some features that can be improved (as concerns EA Builder function ability):

(x) It could offer also SMS alerts

(x) It could offer more (ready-to-use) trade system examples

(x) It could focus more on cryptocurrency trading as more and more traders need advanced tools to trade crypto

(x) It could offer live chat (at least for those who purchased a full membership)

 EA Builder Review Conclusions

EA Builder Review Conclusions

Probably, EA Builder is the best application in the market to create indicators and auto trade systems without any programming skills. We have used the application ourselves and we found it extremely easy to create a customized signaling machine.

There is a ton of technical analysis indicators and functions, including even time intervals and money management. There are also a full series of manuals and video tutorials, explaining money management and strategy optimization. Customer support is available via email.

EA builder is completely free for creating MT4/MT5 indicators but in order to be able to build Forex Robots, there is a one-time payment of $97. The application is absolutely recommended for all trading styles and for all levels of trading experience (beginners, semi-advanced, and advanced traders).
