Bryan! I agree with your view as well. That is, the flaws in TS and MC are serious barriers for me as well. In my comments I addressed some benefits, and ignored the flaws. If TS and MC did not have these flaws, I would probably be able to trade profitably without following your proprietary development path. TS and MC are helpful, particularly in the historical data graphics and some aspects of intra-bar price path analysis in back testing but these still have serious limitations, even worse in my own view than the ones you cited. HFT has never been practical on “retail” trading platforms to the best of my knowledge. Which is, BTW, a main reason why I am a member of your Quantlabs! If you give me the dot net or C++ source code functions to call for writing the indicators and strategies I will be happy, whether you write them yourself or draw help to write and test them using MC dot net. Keep up the good work, you are saving me years of hassles with the retail platform software with your researching and reviews. https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/01/my-view-of-limited-retail-trading-platforms-multicharts-and-tradestation-vs-custom-dotnet-c-solutions-with-full-source-code/FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER.
