Quantopian - Pretty dang cool, especially if you like Python

I did a quick search and didn't see anything about it, but check out:

https://www.quantopian.com

It's a hosted algo trading platform. You write your algos in Python (which is just an awesome language, imho), and you can backtest it against up to 10 years of minute data. Right now, it's limited to US equities, and like I said minute data is the best you'll get for now, but the product is still in beta. It's also FREE. Ultimately, they plan on extending it so that you can have it execute trades for you, which will be the paid portion -- sorta like the NinjaTrader business model.

The in-browser IDE isn't too bad either. It's also nice to not have backtesting taking up resources on your own machine (esp for those of us who have to sit in VirtualBox/Fusion to run our software).
