c# Automated Trading Software created by myself

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by shewenhao, Jan 28, 2012.

  1. Hallo Every Trader,

    I am a financial engineering and has tried to start my own trading. I love c# and designed a software based on that to help my self to check market and deploy automatic trading strategies. The thing I have done:

    1. Based on ActiveX API provided by Interactive Brokers known as a kind broker to provide consistent service. I use c# because it is easy to have some usable UI quickly and I could learn more support from anywhere on Internet. Totally abandoned any opensource, sorry.

    2. Try to develop a strategy on Forex and plan to deploy it as an automatic one on my software which will be installed on a seperate software dedicated for trading or on Amazon EC2.

    3. Please tell me any suggestion or recommendation on my plan:)

    4. Plan to develop strategies by using SAS data miner and Rapid-i because of its easy to use and lot of data manipulation and modelling tools.

    Thanks lot!

  6. Hallo, Bob 111,

    Thanks for your encouragement.

    You are right. It currently only helps me to read the chart and go to some finance websites I used to visit quickly. However, you may notice that I have simulation, live trading and report Tag above as well and I am building stategies now on forex pair. Please wait for my update through this thread.

    You like the chart-control? It is a visual studio package called DEVEXPRESS which is commercial and I am lucky to have.

    It's really easy to create such graphic i WPF, no need for 3rd parties imho.
    And the best thing... you get exactly what you need :D

    I can recommend http://www.apress.com/9781430224815 , very good book and after I read the interesting chapters for me it was very easy to understand the simplicity in charting.
