Right now, all I know is C/C++ and how to scalp equities (which I'm still mastering).
Multicharts and Interactive brokers.
the best traders I know stare at the screen
and you want to have it all and not even stare at it
good luck, you will need it
and you won't get it.
I stare at the screen eight hours a day. I'm not dreaming of some program that automatically pulls money without supervision. I just know that, if I want to continue in this business into my 30s and beyond, I'll need to get into computer trading.
I don't want to be middle-aged and still stuck scalping stocks intraday.
Personally I see manual traders as the buggy whip makers of the current day. Trading Bot developers are having their share of problems as did the small auto manufacturers at the turn of the twentieth century but give it some time...
Check out the frostengine thread to see how bot developers are struggling...
