For automated trading systems aka ATS, you cannot use Excel for trading execution so use CSharp and DotNet

From another newsletter subscriber:

My 2 cents –
I am under the impression that  you are set out to develop ATS that can withstand time tests.  I don’t think one can develop reliable trade strategies using excel.
ATS by itself is complicated. I expect ATS to sit in middle layer between HFTs and day traders or retail trades.  In essence, I expect ATS  to be not smarter than
HFTs, but definitely it can incorporate day/swing trading strategies to deliver better results than day/swing Traders.  That means, ATS has to filter out triggers based
on well-known indicators  and strategies used by smart day traders & swing Traders.  At least, that’s my goal.  I posted this last night and today was break down in
market. ATS should be able to handle such break downs.
–> I am aware Excel is not to be used for execution. This is for monitoring purposes only.
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.

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
