Tower Research founder Mark Gorton is HFT modern god as he is hiring like a mad man

These HFT founders looks solid compared to others. He was a developer of the infamous Lime Wire network but also built out Lime Brokerages. As this brokerage became the goto one for smaller HFT shops, I did not know he was connected to this shop:

Why I include Tradestation as a way to potentially lose money? Market maker or selling your order flow anyone?

Someone asked me:

Bryan sorry to hear that person had a bad experience with an FX broker. Serves as a warning that you need to be careful who you do business with (especially so in the FX world) but I see nothing in their comments that mentions ninja trader or Tradestation. What was your reason for including them?

From: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/06/will-retail-trading-platforms-like-tradestation-metatrader-and-ninja-trader-actually-make-you-lose-money/

My response:
Simple, Tradestation is tied to itself as the broker. Basically, I don’t try brokers so pick the least corrupt which is Interactive Brokers. Call it market making manipulation or selling their order flow.

Will retail trading platforms like Tradestation Metatrader and Ninja Trader actually make you lose money?

This comment below got me thinking:

tradestation

i have very bad expiriense with Jforex and Metatrader it dont really mater have you skills or not , back server will override you formula against you profit ok !!! in order to make money you have to have you own program and execute through FIX , not through the broker. takes time and money to find out plus extra experience i have with Jforex FXDD !!!!! Example try to open account deposit $2000-$5000 and withdraw it , some kind off problems starts , you will see how desperately system want you money any market or broker formula to make money , not to pay bills and no one on this world will ever do anything to help you make the money if you are c++ programmer if you better then average if you trade Fix not broker Api , my be you make little money sometimes Dont believe me , it takes time to prove it to you self – See more at: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2011/11/is-jforex-better-than-metatrader-mql4-to-develop-forex-and-quant-strategies/#sthash.tbXryNte.dpuf

Also, why trade like a sheeple? Why be a stock chaser? Why be part of the dumb money movement?

My conclusion, control your destiny by owning your own technology and infrastructure.

Hmmm…. is this why you need your own trading platform with source code? Control your own destiny? I can tell you that the most important traders on the planet I personally know are doing exactly this. This includes Ernie Chan who trades in the millions. Learn this through the only service of its kind on the planet.

My review of TradeStation and Easy Language programming for a potential trading strategy

My review of TradeStation and Easy Language programming for a potential trading strategy

My review is pretty simple from 30+ years of development:

Crap Stop Crap Stop Crap Stop.

Seriously. Where are the easy to get resources and tutorials? I can’t them nor do will spend any further time. Eeek.

This is all I could find:

No easy reference. Forget it.

Ok. I have a cryptic online reference for keywords:

This came in as a comment from one my of members

Bryan:

TradeStation 9.1, and their brokerage for futures, equities, and forex.
I once had several brokers, too much hassles with paperwork, so I consolidated with the “trader’s digest”.

I do little trading, mostly use it for writing and testing strategies for a few other people who do trade and do no want to fight with computer hassles. Really, I think trading and computers so not mix very well when one person tries to wear both a quant hat and a trader hat at the same time. Sometimes I trade a small size real time just to get a feel for what p’s off traders using a balky computer. Research is a much more laid back endeavor than trading.

TS has no binary options data, is not really HFT capable, but does have a good historical data cache. Can record quotes bid and offer, level 2 in real time into files, but cannot download historical quotes or level2. Now TS and Multicharts have 1 second time stamps, and with NIST utility you can set computer clock within tens of milliseconds. Still not good enough for HFT, but you need better than 1 second intervals under control even to simulate trades in low leverage swing trading or day trading styles.
Try the NIST widget to get a feel for using a synced computer.
http://time.gov/widget.html
Resetting your computer clock every few minutes enables you to count better time resolution than every second, and estimate those times when data comes in several milliseconds, seconds, or minutes late….bad time to use a market order. If the data comes in late, your order will arrive much later; you need to use anticipatory limit orders and non-anticipatory market orders at only the right times… I also use a radio tuned to WWV in background to know the time.
Other feeds with both quotes and trades data…Historical downloadable.
IQfeed, Nanex, tickdatamarket.
