Read here about the advantage of a completely automated trading system.

API trading advantages.

Forex trade via brokers trading platforms, provide advanced notice of your intentions. This occurs every time a limit order is created or a submitted. Your intensions and tactics are visible to others, and this can't be a good practice.

API (Application Programming Interface) trading platform hides the access to your exist strategy. Orders execute in Real Time and your intensions remain private.

Trade without fear of mistaking.

The automatic buy or sell orders are sent out to be executed in the market when a certain set of criteria is met. This fully automated system prevents you from being responsible for making an error because of poor judgment or misinterpreting market condition.

Increase the number of trades.

An automated trading software usualy generates more trades per time than a human trader usually does, and can replicate its actions across multiple markets and timeframes.

Psychological advantage.

A human trader will eventually be affected by certain events that accrues in his own private environment (death, birth, illness ...) or in a more big scale (war, global depression, tsunami...). As human, the chance of making a mistake due to pannic or being careless is greater than the chance to take advantage of the swing that will take place in the market. A mechanical model is more likely to "stay calm" and make a profit at the end of the swing.

Complex strategy implementation.

Fast calculation and ability to receive and process data, let basic models that rely on as little as a linear regression or moving averages, to make a decision weather to buy or hold in a much faster and efficient way than a human trader possibly can. Even more complex game-theoretic and pattern recognition or predictive models can also be used to initiate trading, as well as neural networks and genetic programming models.
