    I am trying to write a simple EA but don't know Java and was wondering anyone could provide a simple EA

    I'm good at figuring what I need to do if I could have a look at any 'ol EA

    Any good links are also appreciated.....cheers!!! :D

    I have sort of the opposite problem you have. I know programming, but don't know the market. What's an EA?
  3. JSystemTrader is an open source Java ATS for IB.

    Go to and download the code.

    After you unzip the code all the indicators are in the JSystemTrader/source/com/jsystemtrader/indicator folder.

    The are EMA, HMA, SMA AND WMA among the many indicators available.

    Thank you very much for the link and information

    It looks like I still need to have some programming know-how and I have absolutely zero-zilch

    Is there any program you know of that will allow me to create an EA just based on moving averages?

    Essentially, I just want to create an EA where I enter a trade when the 10SMA touches the 20SMA and then take 60 pips in profit

    Cheers!! :)
  5. For what platform/broker you want to create it?
