    Hello fellow traders,

    Can anyone suggest user-friendly platforms or technologies that I can use to rapidly build, backtest, and deploy automated options trading systems? I've looked at NinjaTrader, which doesn't appear to have too much support for options trading, and also TradeStation, which is a bit pricey as a standalone product. They also don't have a test product so I can't evaluate whether the added costs are worth the money.

    You can try Anvil as it has Option data feeds and direct connection to exchanges. The API will let you send order directly but I havent done this for Option. It also can be linked with Microhedge (Option Risk modelling and management platfom from Sungard)
