Python do it yourself coding vs 3rd party trading platforms like Multicharts

Questions from someone via my help desk:

Hope all is well. I am at a crossroads right now when it comes to choosing a platform, and coding the proper language for some strategies.  Im not interested in wasting too much time, for now. I do have interest down in the road when my time frees up to go through libraries of videos. I have accounts at Interacrive Brokers, and was planning on using Multicharts to execute trades to IB but have come across the open source you were posting about with tradelink. Does this seem like the route to be taking? Coding language for tradelink? I read about guys bashing people for not wanting to pay the $1500/lifetime but for what Ive paid for a lot of programming to get done Id be penny pinching these days just like anyone else and asking questions. Hindsight is 20/20 and I dont want to waste much more time and or money. Im looking to just begin trading and trying to open up avenues for business grow when that happens. Thanks for the time.

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
