  1. Hi, Im interested in getting into automated trading system development. I've been trading a demo account for a little under a year and I’ve begun to study C# a few months ago. I still consider myself a beginner programmer but I’d like to start applying what I learn directly to my cause. The problem is I don’t know where to start. I understand I will be using .NET but I’m not sure how exactly and I have many questions. I’m currently on the chapter on LINQ so I look forward to learning how to work with data better soon but where do I get the data to begin with? And how do I start my own live, updating data collection (in Excel or something). I’ve heard of socket programming and FIX protocol, will I need to learn how to “socket program”? If so, how do I got about that (is that its own language)? I’ve looked into (open source) TradeLink and (expensive) RightEdge. In terms of actually coding the strategy, I noticed RightEdge has a code library that I could make use off. I’m not in the position to purchase their expensive software ATM but can I still use that library to author C# code in TradeLink? What about QuantLib? Can I use that library too ( or instead of ) the RE library . Are there any other code libraries? Also, is there a popular charting/backtesting software that I could use to backtest the data (once I figure out how to get it) using my algorithm (once I figure out how to build it lol) ? ( kind of like you can do with MQL in MetaTrader where it draws out historical data visually tick my tick and showing were trades would have been made). I’m currently reading “Pro C# and the .NET Platform”, about to begin the part of the book on .NET soon and was hoping someone can visit the link and go to “Look Inside” the book’s table of contents and let me know if there are any chapters/topics I will be using extensively, others rarely, or other perhaps not at all so I can safely skip them temporarily until I start doing more advanced things. I mean the book is 1500 pages for cryin out loud and I'm really trying to get up to pace and understand how all these things go together to build a trading system using C#. http://www.amazon.com/2010-NET-Platform-Andrew-Troelsen/dp/1430225491/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309922819&sr=8-1 Thank you so much in advances, I would really appreciate the advice.
  2. Anyone have a recommendation for a backtesting software and data feed that covers global markets? I currently dont have a TS account anymore but would like to backtest some strategies on my free time away from the office. Thanks.
