Need to convert from TradeStation to a more robust platform to trade automated at many different fcms. I am cta and cpo that currently run a very successful pool. Want only to port software once.
The question is do I prepare program in c# or ninja script and then write to various API or do I buy another platform that can accept inputs from excel or vb? Any suggestions as to where to start. Also has to be able to be hosted by third party so need to worry about security

Really depends on what shortcomings you are facing in tradestation. We haven’t personally tried tradestation. But before you port, I’d recommend reading about the different available platforms like Ninja, OpenQuant, Right Edge etc. Each one has some positives over the other and each one has some down sides too.

Btw if its just Excel, IB and TT provide a mechanism to do that through VBA macro development.

We work together- www.microstructure-research. these off the shelf platforms are not great but depends on your strategy objectives

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
