    Hi Guys,

    I would like to automate my FOREX trading using a system I would like to develop.

    Since I'm a heavy trader, I am looking for a reliable server based solution, which can host my system and ensure its execution.

    I am also interested in programming my system (which I am now trading manually) to run on this server platform.

    Where should I begin my search?

  2. When you mention server based... are you planning on having the ATS server hosted by the exchange or the broker? Or are you just talking about getting a 10+ server farm racked up at your home/office?

    Another question is how comfortable are you with the IT stuff? More-so, what's your current setup?

    Considering that you're manually entering orders, I don't see a reason to invest in the hardware as of this moment.

    Develop the systems first. Once (While) it's developed, you'll find the appropriate setup you need to implement them.

    - In this time of age, manual trading is not exactly heavy...

    Any VPS works however some are more reliable than others, development depends on which language or platform you use, Tradestation/Ninjatrader/TWS, or hand built using data feeds which are ideal with C++/C# however for concept PHP can work with talib.
