VS2013/15 Express is fine. The API will be migrated to VS15 soon so might as well just go that route.

OK, so lets say you were going to build an installer for me, which app should I even be focusing on for my needs?

I envisioned a way to chart data, apply signals, and return a results spreadsheet or other analytical data. I wanted to then apply that towards portfolio's to see what capabilities already exist in the platform.

Take a look here at a Global Tactical Asset Allocation portfolio system as a good starting point, the aim would be to see how much can be automated in S#:

Mike

I'll take a look at the link.

Your vision is definitely doable with S# but an app is not written out of the box to do all of that. I'd like to get @stocksharp to chime in on this as well. I am less than 1 in S# years so I want to make sure I'm not missing things that I'm just unfamiliar with.

Taking a step back and looking at this from more along the lines of an end user's perspective (not a developer), S# is currently at the stage equivalent to the "guts" of a NT or MC but does not have the slick user interface pre-built.

OK, but am I right that Studio does the charting and reporting? I assume also the signal generation?

I guess the Data aka Hydra feeds the data.

I'm not following where the API comes in. Is this a command line interface? REST/JSON? Do I have to query the API to trigger trade signals and executions or is it part of Studio?

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.
6)

Let me answer the points

1. First of all - registration mails. Will check it. Actually didn't do that before cause for English users registration now is useless. The main products (Hydra and API) placed on GitHub and no need registration anymore. The discussion board as I ask you before here - on BMT. And in English version of welcome message the link on here topic instead of out own forum (where is 99% Russian only unfortunately).

2. Studio's latest release is out of date. I don't know will we continue to develop or stop that project. But the stuff like license (doesn't exist for now) is out of date.

3. Hydra (S#.Data) is a program for download or grab historical and realtime data. Download history from IQFeed, BarChart, Yahoo, Quandl, Dukas, GainCap etc. It is DO not related with trading robot. Hydra is a independent program for users who wanna automate data collecting. Data are stored into bin on csv formats.

4. As @Jasonnator said the main product is API. Yes, it is oriented for traders who develop in C# IDE (like VS). Studio is not yet completed (and no plans for now to finish, have another major tasks).

5. Mike, we can create something as a demonstration for you. If you looking some programmer who can help to do something useful for you - say me or Jason. Personally for me it would be great experience to create an app for you.

@Big Mike yes, Studio was designed to be an all in one charting, trading, analysis, etc platform. It has it's own connectors panel/window which allows you to connect to the broker of your choice. With whatever connector you choose, Studio can pull historical data independently of the S#.Data project (aka Hydra).

I have updated the 2nd post to hopefully clear up some of the confusion a first time user may run into.

The API is what Studio was built with. When I say API, it contains classes for example for the IQFeed connector which can then be used in any application. Same for buying/selling, automation, protective strategies, etc.

This link explains the architecture of S# and may better explain/depict.

BTW apparently the documentation.sln in the git repo isn't compatible with VS2015 or needs another program or something like that.

I can build everything fine with multiple versions of VS2015. It's been a while since I've looked at the documentation project but I think it uses SandCastle.

Update:

I have decided to go full custom on my platform but will be using some S#'s components/classes/etc. I still follow S# closely and want to help the BMT/FIO community where ever I can with this open source library. In my opinion, S# remains a fantastic API from which to build a NinjaTrader/MultiCharts/etc competitive platform. It's a ton of work and most likely won't be entirely free unless you're a savant developer but full control over a platform is just too tempting for me to pass up.

End result is this thread is not dead but may slow while I get my platform up and running. If members have information or contributions you would like me to add to the TOC 2nd post, I am more than happy to add it so everyone may benefit.

Jason
