    Hi guy,

    I’m becoming a bit worried as my built-in trading strategies do not provide me with good result anymore. So I think to start program my own ideas. Here is the question: which language to select: EasyLanguage or MetaStock or WealthScript. I’m extremely newbie in such sort of things. I think that WealthScript in for code gigs mostly. I was alos said that MetaStock formula language is not so flexible as EasyLanguage.

    So what you can suggest from your trading experience. Which language do you prefer?

    Thank you so much!
  2. I have both Metastock and Tradestation and like TS better (more flexible). Right now, however, I think I'm going to learn VB.net so I can roll everything into that...
  3. Good idea. You will be happy you did.

    Thank you. I've never heard about VB.net so will investigate.
