Platform Question

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by alvinshaffer, Jan 15, 2010.

  1. I wanted to get the groups help in locating a platform that can accomplish the following:

    1. Build strategies based on common indicators
    2. Run the strategies during market hours (either on a web based platform or standalone software on my Pc/MAC)
    3. When entry and exit signals are met, email me with the data so I can make a call on entering or exiting the position.

    Now you might be saying - a lot of platforms do this, but I am looking for some that are easy on the budget. I could easily have Metastock run RT to do this but this is really outside of my price range. I don't mind reacting to delayed market data - RT is not a requirement.

    Optimally I would love to have an online service that ran on their servers do this , but I don’t mind starting up a program every morning. If an outright purchase is required, I would like to stay at or below $250 , if a subscription is required I would like to stay around the $30 / month area (give or take)

    I am a TD Ameritrade customer and Strategy Desk is supposed to do this but TDA can't seam to get the alerts feature working to distribute emails.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions on platforms.
  2. hello alvinshaffer, i m also finding the answers of these questions i had same ques bt now i have solution for this so i want to share this with you. I found that introduced in the market, a simple & fast method to Work on MetaTrader4 Trading platform for Forex, CFDs and Futures traders. It offers to Meta Trader users a powerful Excel trading application that provides an alternative to building trading strategies. It also provides live MT4 prices, Easy access to MT4 historical values and the best part is that there is no need to have knowledge of mt4 programming. I think you must try this even they give free downloads and easy examples to know how their Forex Excel works
