Thanks, planetmoto. I think that NinjaTrader is going to have everything that I need. I'll be setting it up in a couple of weeks to test out.

feel free to contact me
there are plenty of issues you may run into
from memory leaks to granularity of the current order state...

risingfire,

while this would not qualify your request of routing orders from Tradestation, you might want to take a look at Multicharts as it can support legacy EasyLanguage code and you could connect it to IB directly.

All the routing options I am aware of seem to only work with legacy EasyLanguage orders or issue orders only after the Trademanager reports them as filled.

Regards,

ABCTG

I second that. Multicharts can also connect to Rithmic and execute in a speedy fashion.
You will find it rather better than most external feeds, IMO.

We use TradeStation as an FCM and in the past connected it TS to many third parties.
Our best experience was with a platform called BlueWater Trading that integrated with TS directly.
It was 99% up time.

Thanks,
Matt Z

Thanks, Matt. My primary limitation is that I do not want to re-write the EasyLanguage strategies in another language. For now, the closer to the original testing platform and data source (TS), the better. Maybe. It depends on how many interconnectivty issues there are. And from the feedback in this thread, looks like I may have some.

So based on yours and ABCTG's response, I'm looking into Multicharts, also. That does look like a good option if the strategies translate and perform similarly to the way they do in TradeStation and it certainly can't hurt to try!

Thanks, rleplae. I appreciate your willingness to help and will certainly do that! Hopefully it won't be too nightmarish.

risingfire,

if you are using legacy EasyLanguage the chance is high that you won't have to do any modifications. If you are using OOEL you will have to try to substitute the functionality, which might not always be possible.

Thanks, I figured that would be the case. I do use OOEL for some things, but they are not critical to the logic of the strategy, so could probably be removed for Multicharts version.

I would be more than happy to facilitate your business or provide any help necessary.
My suggestion is to use @ABCTG coding services to adjust the code for Multicharts.
They may be minimal but I have customers who used him and all say he provides quality input.

If you want to discuss opening an account you may call us or email us.

Thank you,

Thanks, I think I'm good for now. I have a professional programmer/systems analyst background with many languages under my belt, so the coding is second nature. If I had time to re-write in C# or somesuch and test, I would do that. But... trying to take minimally disruptive path at the moment.
