If you were an average coder, and were just starting to look for a platform to be able to design and test your strategies, which platform would you buy?
I have one of these already, but I am thinking about changing due to the limitations.
I'm using NinjaTrader, because its free, easy to use, and I've found free data available. Which means I'm getting started sooner than later in developing strategies.
I have found issues with its backtesting (referred to as intrabar granularity problems), but as suggested, I've begun testing (backtesting and market replay) using a secondary time period (tick for me) for entries and, so far, I'm seeing more accurate results between the two. If the results are positive, I expect to being sim testing with a live data feed next month.
