Hi, i trade currently for a prop firm. Im learning alot about how the market works etc...So im interested in learning more about this automated trading. How does it work? Can you just design your own program and then license it to go through a broker? Or what other options are there? I don't really have much of a knowledge in programming (a little java) but willing to learn if needed. What languages are best to learn for designing fast and efficient programs? Any help/advide would be appreciated.
