Max,

Everything is just a lot easier in EasyLanguage. Often in C# it takes two or three steps where in EL it takes just one. This is especially true of DataSeries.

Plotting is also about 1 million times better on EL. One line of code can take care of multi-color plots whereas on NT it takes probably 20 lines of code per multicolor plot.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Answer

The big difference is easy language (and the underlying platform) hides all of the infrastructure, and exposes just what you need to get the majority of things done. So for most indicators you don't really need to do much. This also means the learning curve is much shorter and allows more people to try to do their own thing.

The trade off is that there are things that are not easily done or not possible because you do not have access to the low level internals of the platform. Most people do not need this level of complexity.

For the vast majority of people, this is a good trade off.
