Automated trading

Has anybody used spreadsheet trading in sierra chart and found other equivalent or better platforms to develop an automated system on?

I am thinking about moving to ninja trader, but I am not sure if their platform is as strong. There's so many little bugs that I am sick and tired of with Sierra. I got pushed an update and now my whole spreadsheet is blank, all gone the work that I've done for the past few weeks. And their support really, doesn't really instill confidence with me anymore.


Cheers

HI
I have not found any other to use spreadsheet for auto trading.

I certainly will not be using Sierra for any kind of auto trading.

It is great for discretionary, and I use it.

I have had spreadsheets disappear a few times among other strange things. I do not like to spend too much time troubleshooting and trying to keep things straightened out. It was too difficult to keep the spreadsheets straight and working properly.

Multicharts is my favorite due to the many included signals to experiment with. And it is easy to keep everything organized.

Ninja is nice because it is very easy to code an idea and test it . It has the dashboard for monitoring all of the strategies and excellent reporting and database capabilities. Unfortunately, it has many bugs.
SO it forced me to simplify everything which has actually helped. I mean simlplify codes to avoid errors.

I run them both. I have some code in Ninja that I have not been able to convert, and vice versa.

Multicharts does not save trade data to a database automatically, which I find to be a huge shortcoming.
If I crash ninja during a week of testing, at least all of the trade history is saves and I can still look at the results.

If I crash midweek with Multicharts, and have not manually saved the trade history to a performance report, then all of it is gone !
What do you think of that ? crazy , right ?
