Hello goodoboy,
For your situation and aims, sounds like Ninja would be a good first step. Looks like a lot of the more-traveled traders here have migrated to SierraChart (C++), but if you're comfortable in C# then yea stick to Ninja.

Check out Robert Carver's book 'Systematic Trading' and his blog: - TONS of well-qualified treatises written by him on the realities of designing/building/testing the core framework and strategies, as well as free access to his open-source trading platform, pysystemtrade (not 'beta' release-grade per his disclaimer; written in Python). I think he's got both feet on the ground in his philosophy and approach, versus some of the alternatives around the interwebs.

(Mod note: I'm not a vendor, not advertising Rob's book, just a recommendation)
