Hi All,

After many years of trading and 'adjusting' my entry & exit signals when in trades (guilty I know!), I have started to write software using Tradelink (see https://tradelink.org/) to force me to stay with my trading system when in trades. I'm an engineer and have many years programming experience, so Tradelink, which is more an open source software toolset will not be for everyone, but I am happy to share what I am doing and if anyone else is looking for a real-time open source platform (like NinjaTrader but free to trade - Nijatrader is free but they charge to do real time trades and it has a few restrictions Tradelink doesn't have) would be keen to share ideas as I learn.

So far I have compiled and run their example programs and written a very basic indicator. Most are US focussed and I trade mainly ASX, Forex, Options and Futures, it is a bit of a learning exercise to get the codes for futures and Forex tickers working - I also use Interactive Brokers, mainly because I automate my trading.

If anyone else is using Tradelink, I am keen to swap notes on what I have done to date.

Well, that's my intro, and I'll keep you posted as I get this real-time trading system going...

Cheers,

Hi there,

Haven't used Tradelink before but definitely keen to see how you go with this. How flexible is the code? I've been using Matlab for my backtesting, because i have specific ideas about how to compare and select between competing trades. Haven't been sure how the commercially available software handle it, and therefore haven't been willing to fork out the cash to find out.

Wish i knew about Tradelink before i invested all that time into learning Matlab, haha.

Looking forward to more updates.

Cheers,
Mark
