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.

Seer Trading Platform (

Anyone using Seer?

Trading Platform Software for backtesting & auto trading, for stock, futures and forex trading systems Seer

They bill it as an institutional grade multi-product/asset portfolio trading platform with built-in R and Perl integration, backtesting capabilities, portfolio view charting, etc.

Lots of videos on their site.


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.

Hi Mike,

I don't currently use it, but i have previously used it for over 12 months. I would recommend it for its speed and flexibility. It uses perl as the programming language, which i liked. You can do portfolio-level multi-symbol, multi-strategy testing and can code complex entry/exits. Its only drawback is the paucity of shared code due to its small user base, but i think its benefits far outweigh this consideration. I used it to code and test MP-related setups using 10 years of 1 minute bars.

I would definitely recommend seer.

Pros include R and Perl integration (love that) and high performance (though backtester is apparently single-threaded/core so that's "sub-optimal" for what I need unfortunately). They support FXCM and IB ($100/mo) which is also somewhat of a non-starter for me as I'd rather use Oanda (and IQFeed is only used for historical data?).

The big "oh no" for me though was the lack of range bar support - it immediately made me think of this as simply an upgraded Metatrader with some additional bells & whistles but nothing I can switch to from either NT or MC.

Again - sigh. Really wanted another option that had R support...
