This article is a first part of 3 part series of articles about strategy testing in customized JForex. I’d like to show to readers how JForex libraries can be easily used in building custom strategy trader/back tester. The idea behind my articles is, that when one needs to implement some more complex trading algorithm containing tenth or even hundreds of Java classes, requires some custom UI, needs opportunity to debug it would be beneficial to break free from JForex back tester and develop custom program using JForex libraries.
The article series presumes reader has got at least beginner knowledge level of Java programming language, basic familiarity of Java Development Kit, and ideally PowerShell scripting overview or at least working Windows knowledge.
Personally I’m very interested in area of automated / algorithmic trading and as a professional software developer having good command of several languages I’ve found JForex platform like the best option to develop automated strategies on. In this first article of the series I’d like to show you how to download all necessary libraries of JForex and use them in simple Strategy implementation.
