Hi MasterYan,

I personally use MC the easylanguage version. I have not tried tradestation so I cannot comment on the feature comparison/gap between the two.

I started with MC the .NET version and liked it except for the programming language. While I do/can program, learning yet another object oriented language syntax got to be a bit too much. Learning easylanguage which is a bit more natural language based was very easy to grasp. And extremely fast to develop on. And the fact that I then could use the code references from the existing easylanguage and tradestation body of knowledge available was a huge benefit to me. I get that easylanguage may not be the most efficient or powerful, but so far it is ok. And as I mentioned the benefits of the BOK is significant to me.

And lastly was the cost. The TS fees were quite expensive but it is also a Ferrari of a system and that has its place too. If I could afford it someday, maybe I will change to it.

MC has backtesting capabilities, multi strategy capability, and has a dynamic variable strategy engine that allows you to do real-time fitness feedback loop with the live strategy execution. I doubt my system could handle that processing need, however I see the value in having the capability.
