Signal generation "automation" suggestion request.

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by Bad_Badness, May 8, 2021.

  1. Hi All,

    Looking for some suggestions that:

    Has a easy "build-dev" environment to setup (prefer not to deal with python VMs etc)
    Can be used to generate signals and counter signals based on price, volume and MAs.
    Does not need to do ANY order management.

    Probably more of a scripting language would be suitable. I don't want to get back into the "Development" business and focus more on the "Trading" business.

    Basically, I just need a glorified ALERT.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: Using IB TWS now, but does not need to be integrated. My fall back is the TWS Excel RTD interface.

  4. TOS has Thinkscript. MultiCharts and TradeStation have EasyLanguage.
  5. Thanks All, I went with MultiCharts. I will spend the next few weeks setting up a bare bones system, then test it for basic functionality. If all goes well, I will put in the error handling and scaling code and then test the bounds and stress level.
