Strategy software- are you happy-

  1. Hi. While evaluating strategy software, I am wondering, what strategy software are you currently using, what features you like about it, and what features are not there that you want?

    I ask, because currently, I am looking to use one, and they all seem to do similar things. Instead of asking "which one is best?" i would rather know what you are using now, what features does it provide / does not provide.

    also, I plan to automate trading. Besides using dynaorder, any software out there that backtests / forward tests / allows plug in to any quote provider (like how amibroker does it!) and allows sending orders directly (like a plug in, already there).

    As a sidenote, I have programmed my own strategy software in C++. This works well (i use IQfeed for data), but I have not automated yet. I am considering ordering a software product to "match" results vs. my own.
