Learn about the MachineTrader™ Team

We are MachineTrader

MachineTrader™ is the world's only true low-code/no-code trading platform which means that everything (including the app itself!) is customizable without writing a line of python or C++. MachineTrader's founders have written millions of lines of code over the years, but we find that using our visual platform we can build trading algorithms up to 10x faster than writing code.
