Most robust automation platform?

What is the most robust trading platform for indexes, futures and stocks going around?

I am looking for something well coded, highly stable, able to analyse many products live.

Currently using AMI broker and NT. Ami only for backtesting, Nt for discretionary trading.

Would like to try automated, not sure if there is something better for automated though?

I too would love to hear from other members on their viewpoints and inputs on the same question... I have begun exploring NT and another product (yet to begin exploring!) QuantXpress

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

I highly recommend MultiCharts (Powerlnaguage addition) and/or TradeStation.
We have done automation in both since we work with both platforms, and I could tell you that their backtesting capabilities are superior to many other platforms when it comes to accuracy of results and methods.

I suggest you run the same method twice on any given platform to see if you get the same results.
You will be surprised.

Also, the ability to look inside the bar is a major flaw that many platforms simply so not have.
This could give you misleading back testing results.

Lastly, stability for automation is key! When you go live with any platform, watch it like a hawk, and never leave your automation alone.

Thanks,
Matt

After having done a lot of platform testing and automation development i have chosen to develop my own engine.

It is not a charting engine, it's an automated trading engine.

The answer depends on your approach.

If you want to trade based on indicators, then the usual platforms have enough tools and even add-on's for that.
If you are looking at synthetic and portfolio approach, the platforms come a bit short in my view.

Tradestation

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

I know a lot of people prefer Ninja here, but for me Tradestation works really well. You have to know its limitations (like, don't try scalping with it).

Right now, I run live and do development work on the same desktop (1 instance of Tradestation running).

I have 14 workspaces running. 90 charts on those workspaces. 40-50 of those charts are running automated strategies, producing 10-20 orders per day (rough guess).

I almost never have major problems. Very rarely I have minor problems (position mismatch, orders not getting sent, etc).

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Thanks for the advice!

Sorry for the late reply - work has been crazy.

Ultimately I have no preference, and I'll try all the ones listed - likely the only way I will find out; but I appreciate the list, I have a start-point!
