  1. Thanks to much of the help on this forum, and many of the recommended reading, I have finally come up with a strategy that I think works. I've been going through the Ensign real time demo mode and have been sucessfully.

    I have seen on TV that Fidelity offers a program where you can test your strategies. Is the Fidelity program a good one? or are there better ones?

    Basically, I have written on paper several almost IF ---> THEN statements, like if MACD is x and the moving average is x you enter if prices breaks yada yada. Exits when yada yada happens.

    What would be a good software program to test this. I do not know any programming language except for a C++ course I took 1 semester long in High School, but I'm willing to really dig into learning to program.

  2. I never used it but I hear that tradestation is easy to program trading systems for nonprogrammers.
  3. thanks,

    do you know if NeoTicker is what I would be looking for. I see that all the reviews are extremely positive

  4. I just went to the web page, yes this is exactly what I am looking for
