Auto Trading for rookies

I have been trading full time for about a year. I have seen success discretionary trading but I really want to learn how to auto trade. Are there free platforms to use or demo to practice and/or test out some auto strategies?

I would say about 75% of the people on here will tell you to try Ninja Trader. It's completely free for back testing, strategy analyzing, etc... however you wont be able to execute real trades until you purchase a live license. another good platform would be multicharts. It's a bit easier in my opinion and they offer a free 30 day trial...

Also search around the site a bit, there's a lot of good info right here on futures.io (formerly BMT)...

Auto Trading Help

Hello everyone. I'm pretty new to this site and from what I have found, this is a pretty good site to learn how to develop your own code. I have attached a very simple code that I created through Ninjatrader's Ninjascript editor using the slow moving average to trigger into a trade. I'm just trying to get a feel for how code looks and was surprised when I back-tested and saw that I wasn't triggered into a trade everytime the moving averages crossed. Additionally, the trailing stop doesn't seem to be working correctly either. I have attached the unlocked code here for any help you can provide.

Here is what I'm trying to accomplish with this strategy:

Get triggered into a trade when the small trigger lines cross above/below and the large trigger lines cross above/below each other. If filled, the have exit at 10 ticks and the second have a trailing stop of 15 ticks with a 50 tick profit target.

The other problem I'm having, which I think additional code would need to be written to do this, is to not reverse a trade I'm in even though the slow and fast cross. I know there will be resting periods before the trend continues and don't want to have extra trades triggered. Basically, I would like to cut out the noise when the instrument is clearly moving one direction. First trying to get the code correct for the first part. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
