You heard that right. I have decided to commit to a piece of software which is based on Excel worksheets with VBA. It can make life easier but execution is slower.

As a result, you can expect to see some exciting developments with screeners, decent visual charting, high level market views using Excel. It should be pretty fast to develop as well. Remember I also demoed how to integrate Matlab with Excel as well. Watch this:
