I'm curretly working on a trading system using Excel. It's becoming unproductive to continue with Excel becasue of the time it takes to make changes to the system and test them. So i'm looking for something else.
I know very little about the software available. But I want something that I can convert my current excel system too and backtest over a longer period (current only using 3 years). I have a feeling its going to be a difficult task.
Is the coding for these programs pretty limitless? and is it easy to pick up?
Also what are the costs involved and where does the data come from?
