Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Strategies that watch other instruments

I need to create a strategy that knows what other strategies are doing, as well as other instruments. Say I want to compare one stock to what the Dow is currently doing, or what other position my other strategies have taken.

I have been told this can be done with .txt and WriteLine()/ReadLine() files, and I would rather not if at all possible. I also have heard people have had success with ServiceBus implementations, but I can't wrap my head around it, and don't want to devote another month to that road either. So does anyone have any other implementations or ideas? Give me a place to start and if successful, I'll share the code with the entire community, consider it free work.
