my 2 cents: You won't find a better backtesting platform as Amibroker. It is great piece of software. Highly customizable, stable, very fast and optimized C++ based. Way faster than institutional grade plataforms such as Deltix and QuantHouse. Amibroker is my prefered platform for prototyping (single and portfolio strategies). Moreover, you can call R and javascript form AB.

That said, it is not plug and play for real-time trading such as MC, NT, SC. There is a lot of coding between the backtest and live production. But depending on how good coder you are, there is no limit what can you achieve with AB.

I gave up using AB (though I have restarted) for those reasons, one of which was touched by JF.

This story about repeated orders is ridiculous.
If you do things as recommended by the manual, using Exploration, you can't unintentionnally trigger multiple orders for the same signal.
Amibroker users can/should read articles about Autotrading, e.g
which describes and give an example of autotrading using an exploration.
All of this is described in the User's guide.
And you barely need to know how to code.

Even if you insist on doing things the wrong way, there are solutions to avoid repetition (described in Amibroker Users' Knowledge Base).
Hint: use a static variable to store before last bar timestamp.
