My system rules are starting to become finalized. With minor tweaks here and there. There is the possibility that part of the system rules can be automated. However, I only have a novice level of programming experience. I've put it off over the year because I thought that my system wouldn't work automated. Now I see that it might be possible. I'm considering this now because discretionary trading has it drawbacks. Mainly, the first two type of algorithm I want to develop is an alert system so I don't have to monitor the market 24/7 to wait for my signals. And a risk control system because it's my weakness and a bot probably could do it better. How would I get started? What language and platform should I use? Are there any library code out there that you can buy or get for free? Thanks.
