Hi, I'm thinking of automating the way I trade into a black box but I have no idea where to start from. I trade all available futures markets on a daily basis (based on daily chart) and hold around 8 positions on average. I not only require trade entry, management etc, but also portfolio calculations on correlation and position sizing. Where should I start from? (BARE BASIC, I'm not looking to learn how to programme myself, but am going to either hire a programmer or get a programming firm to do it.) Which platform is the best for this? I'm currently trading on IB and have NinjaTrader subscribed to test it out. Am considering CQG. Suggestions?
