    I may have missed it somewhere on the site.

    But I think that it would be useful to have a ratings section similar to the Brokers rating for trading software such as Tradestation, Metastock, etc.

    It's possible but it's much more complicated and time-consuming to build a software ratings system.

    Since there are so many types of software packages (real-time quotes, order-entry, scanners, etc.), a different set of ratings criteria must be built for each category in order for the ratings to be useful. So five categories would actually require five different ratings systems to be constructed.

    Like I said, it's possible, but I'll have to think about it for a while. In the meantime, it would be helpful if anyone could come up with the names of some major categories of trading software and any software packages they know that would fit into those categories.



  3. Baron,

    why not following the categories of stocks & commodities magazine ?
