  1. Hello everyone,

    I have no programming experience but been toying with the idea of building an algo.

    What is most used in programming;
    C?
    C++?
    XML?
    .NetFramework?
    PMP?

    Any info worth sharing would be appreciated.

    Thx

    Use the language which your trading platform supports. For the most popular ones that would be C# or EasyLanguage/PowerLanguage.
     
  3. Good answer but this forum is about low level programming, not about platforms. So in that regard we would prefer either C++ or C# for developing a trading system from scratch.

    I think you are going to need to change your question to "what trading environment do I want to use to program some scripts. I'm not a programmer" and ask it in another forum.. or you can accept my answer: Ninjatrader. Ninja is so well organized and documented that you can teach yourself to program it.
     
  5. Actually, I consider Tradestation Easylanguage and Multicharts Powerscript to be "ASL"s - Application Specific Languages.
