People have been asking me about how to make your own EA.  Unfortunately, it is not easy.  But the best way is to use Algo Wizard and Strategy Quant.  This is a complex set of software with a steep learning curve.  And it is not cheap.  But, it is the best way to make your own.  Download the trial version and try for 2 weeks.  Make sure you have a high powered desktop as it takes a lot of processing power to run strategies.

Update: I just purchased Forex Strategy Builder.  This is another good way of creating EA's, but I am having a very tough time getting good data for testing.  If someone else is having issues, please let me know how you fixed it.  Otherwise, it is not usable.

UPDATE: Forex Strategy Builder is almost completely useless.  It creates EA's from reading bars and takes a massive amount of time to back test in MT4 or MT5.  And the reason you need to do a long back test is to prove robustness (10 year minimum).  It can pump out some great EA's based on what you are looking for and compile with no errors.  But, every single one I have created cannot pass a long term test.  I would not recommend buying this software.

SQX update: SQX has a new "Ultra" edition that integrates nicely with MQL5.  It is another $1400 USD, but worth it if you don't want to learn how to code...
