Hi there I'm currently looking into developing an automated scalping system and I'd like to find out which language/platform is the most powerful for doing so. The system generates 1 minute intrabar signals based on Time & Sales setups and the average trade doesn't last more than a minute. Did someone on ET already develop such an ultra-fast system and if yes, using which language, platform, etc.... What is your experience with regards to system stability, speed of execution, CPU usage, etc. Thanks a lot for your replies. Regards PS: I'm using IB as a broker and therefore using one of their numerous API's wouldn't be a problem, the guy developing the system for me has excellent programming skills.
