Hey guys,

What is the best platform for automating strategies.
I am having heck of a time already trying to figure out how to grab the previous VAH VAL for market profile doing basic back testing.

Used Sierra Charts for a long time, but spreadsheet for trading running to circular reference issues with vlookup. Looking to see if there are better ways



Cheers

Check out Fred at SST - dude has some really robust things and I learn more about Sierrachart than I ever knew was there from his blog and watching his youtubes.

A must for Sierra folk!

Is Sierra the top platform for this? Any others you will recommend?
I want the platform that I start building on to be robust

I don't really know - I have used TOS, TT, and Multicharts and NONE of them have the capabilities for customization and automation that Sierra does from what I can see.

A steep learning curve for sure but worth it if you are stubborn and don't give up easily. If you want/need someone else to do shit for you then Sierra Charts is probably not going to be your things LOL

lol ya at the end of the day SC is a good platform used it for like 10 years now, just a pain to use with rithmic it's officially unsupported now that got me looking. And then probably 10-20 hours learning their ACSIL language and brush up on C++ on top of that. So want to get into this.

Yah, so spend an hour or two looking at what Fred has. So far I love his work and find it useful and like he says this is not a SYSTEM you bring that yourself and use his work to test optimize and make it work for you.

Check out a couple of his blog posts and youtubes - he is a hardcore Sierra gearhead and I guess you have to be if you want to get the full potential out of the platform. Worth the effort IMO!
