I like ninja trader. I particularly like the ability to create indicators and trading strategies in C#. This has facilitated implementation of some very complex algorithms that I was unable to get working on other systems. As for data provider, DTN IQ Feed. This is the ONLY data provider that I have found that provides accurate information on a timely basis. As for debugging and testing – that can be a bit complex. The website describes how to use Visual Studio to set “break-points” in the C# code, but I have never been able to get them to work. As a result, I write intermediate information to a log file and do analysis on that.

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
