Hello,

I have developed a nice system with the following results. (See below) The system looks nice, but I want to code it into tradestation because I did everything by hand. I hired a programmer so I can backtest further and verify everything. The problem is that I don't own tradeststion. I am thinking 2000i, does anyone have a source? I heard you can buy it overseas.

Thanks,

Andrew

I was with the tradestation brokerage a few years and you cant use there platform unless your a member of the brokerage. If somehow you did manage to find some sort of tradestation hack and convert your code to easylanguage you only can trade easylange through Tradestation anyway all other brokerages use differnent languages.

Although TradeStation is a good choice for backtesting, I would not consider TradeStation 2000i. Tradestation 2000 i was launched in 1999. Why would you pay for a product that is completely outdated (14 years old) and that will problaby not run on a 64-bit operating system?

Why don't you use NinjaTrader? The platform is free, if you do not execute through it. It comes with free EOD data. It is relatively easy to code a simple strategy and backtest it.

I agree, you don't want TS 2000i.

Tradestation usually is running a promotion of some sort. Just call them and ask.


And unless the strategy is really complicated, you can probably do it yourself in TS or Ninja. In fact, in the long run, that is the way to go.

Multicharts does what I need, but there isnt much documentation, unlike tradestation. I hope Ninja trader has more documentation, but I am not so sure.

Thanks everyone

You will find that NinjaTrader has far more support, in the documentation, shared indicators in both the official forum and here that are open source so you can look at how things are done to learn from, and forum support both here and the official forum than MultiCharts will likely ever have.

Also, since NinjaTrader is programmed in C#, you have all the documentation and tutorials available on the internet that are C# specific.... but in Ninja you are programming in C#, so they are directly applicable to many situations.

I own TradeStation from many years ago.... and I am using NinjaTrader today.... so should you.

You can download the help guide here, that is a thousand pages to start with.

https://www.ninjatrader.com/support/helpGuides/nt7/pdf/NinjaTraderVersion7HelpGuide.pdf

If you need further documentation, then you should use the forum, which is pretty active.

You could probably use your TradeStation documentation to code Multicharts. The forum and chat session with technical support team would be there to help you in your developpement

Like you, I hired a coder to write my first code, then I learned EasyLanguage by playing with it. If you got already a working code, you should be able to start with it without having to translate what you got to another language.

Good luck!

Martin
