Hi there Mike,

Mike, a while ago prior to me starting to use Ninja and MC I had been using a Open source program called TradeProject, which some or many people may have already heard of.

The TradeProject site is obviously located at Welcome to TradeProject

At first, it was too very to much scritpy for me and I just need some charting application that would give me connectivity with IB at the time. So I tried it out only to discover there some and many nice features and to me, TradeProject has the potential to eventually do what many other programs do that charge big bucks for.

Adding to the above, TP is both ready in both 32 and 64 bit for download

TradeProject is done by a fella named Daniel whom I believe is from Germany, and also has what appears to me the most Quiet forum on the internet, yet to this day still cannot believe how this can be so. Guess he doesn't market his site or program which I still very much appreciate.

So while I was there downloading an updated verison (they are not too frequent), I decided to Post on his forum to mention about your post and the futures.io (formerly BMT) community.

Now I am not trying to jump the gun here, but I feel there will be a great benefit to both Daniel and futures.io (formerly BMT) if everyone can get behind something as you say. I myself feel very strong about Opensource moving forward and that the power of a user base, be it programmers or traders who beta test to give feedback about bugs.


For quick reference and prior to updating TradeProject, I did a couple of screen shots of both My ASX setup for NT7beta 18 and TradeProject for readers and watchers to have an easy comparison, which I thought would be good to show for a side by side comparison. Also take in mind that there are still very many things not shown in Ninja Trader as well as many things still not shown in TradeProject screens accordingly.


Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).




From a simple mans perspective, TP has much of the stuff under the bonnet that most other programs have whom may I add, charge a wack for, included with the free bugs. Well, if you want some bugs which you can feel good about fixing for everyone to benefit, then I obviously would encourage you to at least check this out.

For those with a much higher mechanical knowledge than me, I suggest you be the ones who look under the bonnet.

My trial to MultiCharts has now near expired, and as much as there are so many great things about the program, to my surprise I am left not caring as it doesn't even have a DOM, let alone a few other missing things that one gets so very used to when using NinjaTrader. Seems with Ninja with or without bugs, it has Order Entry all over the Joint, a great feature yet just another feautre, but this is something that I have come to like about NT.

Many other readers will also no doubt bag the opensource platforms for where they are at or how far behind in some ways. Or, it may be that the simple truth is "Certain programs suit our trading styles and needs" which also could be worded as "Certain programs suit our Repetitious Task actions to achieve our goals". No matter which way you blend the words, we are all different, yet commonly have very similar goals.

So whether Daniel comes here and posts or not, I still encourage others to give the man some feedback as he quietly gets on with his goals and IMO has achieved some pretty Fantastic results thus far. (from my perspective). Please sound off on some feedback for those who wish to explore further.




ps: I attached my NT asx screen as well, as mentioned, both have many more features hidden under the bonnet. Please click the links below once, and then once more again for a full size preview which is best shown in a 24" screen (as I use 3 of them so dont notice)

They're apparently gone - the Google code page is also empty. Not very 'open' source - more like: thanks community for your contributions but now we're running with the project.

That was the funniest thing I've heard in a while.

i read in a german forum a few weeks ago, that this project is going commercial.
this software is a pure c++ application and an allinone solution. i will look for a link
or statement. this software was not really open source. the problem lies in the description of "open source".
the community is / was an one man show.

best regards

Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is a consequence of the first.

That seems to bring the question to TradeLink. Has anyone been successful coding and executing strategies with TradeLink?

ActiveQuant

Guys,

I speak for an open source project about automated trading. We have closed source connectors around the an open core. I am curious to hear about impressions and what you like and don't like. The project's name is ActiveQuant. Google it and you'll find it.

We achieve latency figures of about 3 microseconds for in-application messaging.

It's a very broad field ... so lot's of stuff to discuss. I am also looking for co-developers with some serious aspirations. Ping me and I can tell you some success stories, but AQ is quite something to chew.


Cheers,
Ulrich

I like the idea of open source trading software, but my biggest apprehension is that this is not being developed further at some point. I have seen this on many other projects around the web.

@ustaudinger: I must admit your software looks very well developed.

Are you talking about the product here : ActiveQuant GmbH that now seems to be a commercial product?

So much for OpenSource ...

Extra comedic factor considering @Jura's prophetic post is right above.

AQ is still open source, we just don't throw our source code around for nothing. I think you guys mistake Open Source with For Free.

Look, it's pretty straight forward, we figured that some projects take our source code, change the variable names and include it in their project. Why should we want this?



Let me ask you guys two serious questions.

1) If we give you source code and a working platform, what do you give in return that is at least half as valuable?

2) If you want to work with our source code, why not working with us directly?
