  1. Hi,

    I am wondering

    What is the fastest execution trading plateform that could calculate pre and after tick and send orders instantly as much as possible..

    For an automatic scalping strategy that could be implemented in the second and subsecond territories

    Please name one or some and say your opinion.

    thank you very much
  2. I am not interested to the HFT domain. the fastest available resources for a retail trader

  3. Sorry, i have just forgotten to say that, i am only interested in FOREX..

    Any opinion will be highly appreciated
  4. Hey, let us make it simple

    Is Ninja , TS, Amibroker, Xtrader or Multichart is most suitable for automatic scalping on second time frame?

    Why Zen-Fire

    Introducing NinjaTrader powered by Zen-Fire Trading Engine!

    The Data and Order Routing Engine is co-located with the exchanges and core Internet carriers at one of the premier data centers in Chicago. This provides the network capacity to provide the maximum bandwidth, speed and reliability needed by all types of traders and institutions. The engine was built to support as much data as the exchanges can distribute and route orders in less than 100 milliseconds. Over 18 major Internet carriers are used to ensure network availability when individual Internet carriers fail.

    All hardware and network components were built with redundant backups configured to fail-over seamlessly in the event of hardware failure. Load balancing and scalability was a key design component resulting in a system that can accommodate 1,000's of users without issue.

    The first traders to get on the system were market makers and black box traders that scrutinize the speed down to the milliseconds. After monitoring the system for over a year, a trading platform (NinjaTrader) was written to the engine in order to allow screen traders access to the same market data and order routing engine used by those professionals.

    Features now include new compression techniques and technologies used to distribute the data across IP networks specifically geared toward remote connectivity (i.e. Internet connections) and an institutional grade order-routing engine shaving milliseconds off order entry and modification. Coupled with the NinjaTrader platform that offers advanced order entry types (automated brackets, trailing stops, chart trading, etc) and 24 hour network and IT monitoring, the end result is product now known as Zen-Fire.
