Written in C++ for both Windows and Linux .. complete charting and analysis and trading platform written by a known published author [[The Encyclopedia of Trading Strategies (Jeffrey Owen Katz, Ph.D., and Donna L. McCormick; McGraw-Hill)]]
I dabbled with the original version, and bought the 'pro' sometime ago but never developed the software skills needed to properly give this software an install ... maybe I should have, except dont see it using tick or range bars . A friend was originally going to help me with this but he moved away and lost interest/time to assist.
Advertised as very fast and capable of using multicore, plus multiple instances on same computer without mention of virtual machines needed.
I'm curious too, I always like learning about new platforms to better know all my options.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

It looks like it doesn't actually trade, though. Not sure how important the speed benefit of using C++ on Linux is if you are just drawing charts.
If it had an interface to to the popular APIs (Zen/Rithmic, PATS, TT, IB, whatever) they would get my money tomorrow. Otherwise you have a bit of coding and certifying to do to get it to trade directly.
Or am I missing something? Worth watching this space though...
Trader.Jon have you actually compiled it to work directly on Windows or are you running it in a shell? Reason I ask is I just rechecked the documentation I have for the more popular APIs and the only ones that support Unix are IB and RTS Tango, neither of which is ideal for my own requirements.
I have not used it ... I was awaiting a better graphics package to be included (for Windows) which I have yet to see .. Dr. Katz did say he used IB to trade with this software.
Honestly I was looking at several platforms when I was looking at this one, and I got it because I was expecting to learn Linux at the same time but my Linux buddy moved away and I didnt have the time to do all else (ie NT got my attention because of the strong community built around it.) and had considered that this might be a tool to use alongside NT.
