First off, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but is seems like there are a few it could go in, so i just put in main. Some quick background about myself- I have been trading for a few years now, but i have a full time job that keeps me from being able to trade as much as I might like. I am interested in learning more about Automated/Systems trading, and potentially adding this to my strategy. I have a pretty good amount market knowledge, and I have lot of different ideas for automated strategies, but I have very minimal programming knowledge. Basically I am looking for any books/websites that would have examples of a specific trading strategy with the actual code for the system that someone with little programming knowledge would be able to follow. Again, I'm not looking for a listing of different types of strategies. I am looking for a sort of "how to" to setup a strategy in code. So my questions are- 1. Does such a book exist? 2. If I was interested in learning programming specifically for finance/trading where would be good places to start? I am planning on checking out cooltrade, but I am more interested in learning how to build a system for myself, than having a third party do it. Thanks in advance for any help.
