internet based software safe?

  1. Hi,

    If one would use internet based software like tradestation, are the systems you develop safe? If you have the software on your PC no one can access it, but how is this guaranteed on the internet? No one wants to have his strategies accessed for free I imagine?

    I am starting with building a futuresystem and are currently using and old tradestation version and testdata to develop a system.
    I wonder what the best strategy is for going life.

    I think I will use IB as broker since I will start trading electronic futures. What is the best software that I can use, and which real time data feed can I use best (E-Signal?).

    I hope you can give me a little help here, I appreciate it!
