I wonder if anybody can share one's approach to creating custom plots.
Initially, I thought Matlab would be an ideal solution, but it is expensive (and I cannot afford to lose money on both stock market and software). Octave (open source analog of Matlab) is mostly for Linux, and I need to stay on Windows, as I am not tech savvy.
So I started looking at custom libraries. I found Oxyplot for C#. It is pretty powerful, but requires some meaningful programming skill some knowledge of WPF and MVVM (for timely update of a plot).
I know many broker offer some scripting tools, but I expect my computations/transformations to be fairly intense, and I think I need some object oriented code to handle and graph it.
You need to look at R and Python. There is an R and Python section 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?
