ES Automation, Where to begin please?

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by LVtrader35, Oct 19, 2008.

  1. Looking for feedback please on which platforms you use for ES for automation trading? Do you use TS or Ninja and then code to your platform? I have some signals on TS but my ES broker does not have the ability to handle a code for automation.

    I have not traded with TS either so if you have done automation with them I would appreciate feedback.

    Thanks -
  2. Use the API for IB's TWS and write whatever you want.
  3. Try these folks for automation needs and brokerage recommendations:

  4. Obviously there are a number of great tools available to compile and execute trading strategies.

    As a first step into this area try using excel and excel add-ins provided by various brokers and platforms.

    ie. TT, IB, OEC etc....

    You should be able to grab a feed and start strategizing on your trading methodology. Do some quick and dirty mock ups and then you'll have a better guage on what tools would be best suited for running your system.
