Here are the SioliBros: Paolo and Luca
SioliBros rocks the world during Smau 1998!
SioliBros is also member of SIAT,
the Italian Society of Technical Analysis
We were born in the 70's. Since we were young, we always have been attracted from information technology and the world of numbers. Our father worked in the SWIFT area of an important italian bank company, and he passed his passion for computers to us.
Our first personal computer was the great Commodore 64 (in 1983, Paolo was only 7, Luca was only 5), that let us to learn the fundamentals of BASIC language. We quickly passed to Commodore Amiga (in 1987), starting programming the WorkBench GUI and creating a lot of amazing computer graphics and animations using DeluxePaint software. We also used Amiga to compose a lot of soundtracks using the famous Sonix, Pro/FasTracker and Oktalizer. We know someone out there knows what we are speaking about... ;-)
During high school (institute for information and technology) we studied several programming languages, like Pascal and Cobol (on PC and AS400), focusing on development of accounting systems.
Finished the high school, Paolo completed with honours an information techonology graduate school, increasing his Cobol language knowledge. Cobol is a computer programming language designed for business use. It's primarily used in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments. COBOL is still widely used in legacy applications deployed on mainframe computers, such as large-scale batch and transaction processing jobs.
Due to our tech skills, in 1998 we won the important first place in the italian national competition "Premio WWW" (Information and Communication technology section), promoted from the famous italian economic newspaper "Il Sole 24 Ore". We were rewarded during the prestigious 1998 Smau edition in Milano. See image on the right ;-)
So in 2001 we founded officially SioliBros company, becoming finally indipendents as a software and educational company.
Till 2008 we worked hard as IT teachers and web application developers (accounting oriented) for major private italian companies and public administrations, using the most advanced software technologies and solutions. Just think that our first internal accounting system was developed to work immediately online as INTRANET in 2001...
Always one step ahead, from the beginning ;-)
Approach to forex world
In 2009 it was pure accident that we discovered the forex world. But instead of starting manual trading style, thanks to our previous database and programming skills we decided to approach the forex market in a very different way.
We are not pure Forex traders (and we'll never be), because we trust in automated forex trading using all latest available technologies.
We believe in a scientific research approach, using as much as possible different trading strategies and parameters, to suite our best risk profile.
Today over 90% of worldwide forex transactions are made by computers... so we think wer are on the right side.
After several years of significant progress, today we are experts in developing, evaluating, testing and optimizing forex expert advisors (robots) on Metatrader4 platform.
In 2017 we became a member of SIAT, the Italian Society of Technical Analysis.
