Looking for automating software

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by DblArrow, Aug 21, 2009.

  1. I am wondering if there is any software that will automate the following type of trade -

    9:30-10:00 trade bar - buy or sell one tick above or below with a stop and reverse at the opposite end of the bar; with the stop and reverse active until a certain time i.e. 2 hours then cancel, if not executed, that order and enter a exiting order at a particular time of the day i.e. 5 min before closing.

    Makes sense?

  2. Tons of software can automate that. Pick any one programmable trading platform.
  3. Thanks - I am NOT a programmer - looking for something plug and play, so to speak.

    Does your answer still hold true? If so how about a name or two.

  5. The answer holds true. YOu simply need to learn programming.

    This is like car reparis. Want to be a mechanic? learn it. Want to program strategies - bad news, knowing programming is part of the game.

    THat said, programming straetgies is a LOT easier than "real" Programming, as most application frameworks abstract away a lot of the complexity.

    TradeStation, NinjaTrader come to my mind for the lower end. OpenQuant is a little more powerfull and complex.
  6. I don't need to know how to fix a car to use it or dress it up, or change tires, outside of some minor mechanical understanding.

    But I do understand the need to learn strategy programming and I guess that is what I am looking for.

    An easy language to learn for non-programmers is rebol see example here (parsing Google Finance)
