    I have been trading ESA and NQA manually in the 5-60 min timefrae for some time now and I would like to fully automate my trading and expand the instrument sI trade do about 15-20 (ETF's, treasuries, fx, and commodities). I have no experience with this kind of software and I was wondering which one is the best for:
    -multiple instruments (5-60 min timeframe)
    - low latency
    -strategy writing,
    -scanning for possible trading candidates
    - real time position risk management (risk adjusted position selection)
    - cost

    Comments are appreciated.

    Thank you.
  2. I use NinjaTrader. It's worked fine for me. I'm not sure how "simple" it is for those who haven't programmed before, because my work is the more complex type...but, like I said, works fine for me.

    I use NinjaScript a lot. Help and documentation is not bad, and because it is an extension of C#, you can use the huge documentation of Microsoft's C language family. NinjaScript comes with an easy-to-use wizard for simpler programs, where you don't have to actually write code.
