I am looking to automate a strategy i have developed for the asx200 index based on intraday trading.
I have read many of the posts on automated systems but most seem to relate to equities and more particularly forex.
Can anyone tell me if the various software systems available for automated forex trading can be used for index trading?
I have backtested my strategy in excel and have used the spreads available to me through my existing IG account.
Im looking into wether MT4 via my IG account will alow me to automate my fairly simple strategy.
Also, any advice on the spreads available for asx200 related indexes (or indeed other indexes) from other brokers? obviously the smaller spread i can access the more successful my strategy is likely to be.
I have some very limited C++ coding experience but would not be confident to code even this simple strategy efficiently and properly, im hoping there is a user friendly solution that avoids need for coding, but if not i will pay someone to code the strategy for me.
Thanks in advance,
