C++ versus EasyLanguage?

    Can anyone provide some examples of what can be done in a programming language like C++ versus what can be done in EasyLanguage?

    Does it make sense to first test and validate methods in EasyLanguage (using TradeStation), and then re-code any successful one in C++?

    That is quite a broad question Norm. Basically, given time and money you can do pretty much anything using C++.

    EasyLanguage however, is a very specialized language that will take you from 0 to 60 rather quickly and it is powerful enough to implement most trading systems :)

    Yes, that makes a lot of sense :)

    I hope that helps!

  3. Tradestation can do any type of analysis but without the processing speed of C++

    C++ used mostly for arbitrage, extreme scalping ticks, ...and building independent environment ,which tradestation Engine isn't designed for that purpose

    C++ Dll extension for TS is just for performing functions that not doable with easylanguage, however they won't speed up things in tradestation.

    you don't need to know C++, to become successful
