im thinking about getting some software at some stage in which i can set my criteria and the software can scan the market for me, and i need a realtime live data feed.
im wondering what you guys use for software and for live data feed ?
metastock and amibroker seem to be the most popular softwares and iv heard IRESS is also good. Metastock is about $1,700 and Amibroker $229, is metastock worth the massive premium?
i also need a program where once i have developed formula for a system, i can backtest it over a certain time period decided by me
