  1. JSystemTrader version 6.19 has been released.

    Among other features, JST now fully supports trading, backtesting, and optimization of strategies using sub-minute bars (such as 5-second, 15-second, and 30-second bars). Historical data downloading is also available in JST using two options: IB historical servers and OpenTick servers:

    Hi nonliner, just wonder can I import an price history file to run the strategy, also can I use the end of day data instead of the end of day data? Thanks.

  5. I tested the JSystemTrader using a paper trading account and found that when I close JSystemTrader and open it again, it does not remember the positions and it starts like there are no positions in IB.

  6. From the code I found that a strategy will keep running unless an exception occurs or the program is killed. There is no way to stop a strategy without stopping the program.

  8. if you want a c# open-source alternative, checkout TradeLink http://tradelink.googlecode.com. It's broker-neutral, supports quoting and algorithmic trading applications and works with IB and Assent presently. It's mainly being used by day-traders, so if you are holding positions overnight we'd welcome your testing help.
