# Expert Advisor Studio ~ We developed plugins to make Fintechee compatible with MQL!

Hello everyone, long time no see! It's quite a long time that I didn't update my blog. For 2 months.

Let me tell you why I didn't update the blog...

Fintechee's FIX API individual version has released for several weeks. We did a lot of tests, and it became stable. So I thought it was a good time to promote it.

We have too few EAs and we need more EAs runnable on Fintechee to attract users.

So, I signed up an account in the MQL community and planned to seek developers to migrate EAs to make the EAs runnable on Fintechee.

MQL4 has stopped updating for a couple of months. It's surprising to find that there are still a lot of MQL4 users in the MQL's website. They are seeking jobs and some traders posted jobs to modify the trading strategies.

Clearly, MQL4 is not obsolete, and there are lots of users and EAs relying on this trading platform. Some Forex brokers still have white label s of MT4. But without updating and maintenance, any software can't live for long. In case that the brokers stop offering MT4, how will EAs based on MQL4 go? Will they be thrown away to trash forever?

I planed to develop some extension to support MQL4 just after I released Fintechee's first version in 2018. But it seemed not doable, because we had no idea about how to make expert advisors based on MQL4 runnable on Fintechee. MQL is similar to C++, and Fintechee is based on Javascript and has independent architecture. C++ and Javascript are different programming languages and not easy to work together.

But as long as it's a tech issue, there must be a solution to deal with it. And the number of MQL4 users is quite attractive and encouraged us to find a solution to make them run on the same browser.

Then we dedicated to developing a plugin(extension) during the period. The tech solution actually is very challenging and we encountered a lot of tech issues. Fortunately, we developed a plugin successfully. The plugin is entirely an open-source project. I will write docs and guidelines this week, and make it easy to use.

By the way, we will use neural networks, genetic algorithms on our trading. Please feel free to track our trading records.
