Open Source Trading Platforms (Master List)

Recommended Posts

For the uninitiated, the first question will be why do they need to go with an open-source project (OSP) after all? OSP can in no way compete with the support and timely updates of a commercial platform. The answer depends on your needs. A retail commercial platform such as Amibroker on Ninjatrader shall be able to address most of your requirements. But everything has limitations, and because their source code is proprietary, it can be hard to extend their capabilities. This is where people invest time/money to trade with an OSP. I started looking at options with the need to connect Amibroker with Sterling API.

 

I will be updating this list regularly, please add your comments.

The only one that I came across a while back is OpenForexPlatform, Its not limited to Forex as you can connect to several API, However you mentioned Sterling so Tradelink may be the best solution as the work is already done for you.

 

What have you decided on?

Yes traderlink is the best bet, though it will need some customization. But even with that Traderlink+Sterling seems to be a more efficient solution than Ninjatrader+custom interface+Sterling.

 

Though I will actually implement this after few months, currently have other priority.

I've been using ModulusFE's M4 platform for a couple years (Trading Application with Complete C# and C++ Source Code by Modulus - YouTube). I use this because the source code is open and commercially supported (you get 24/7 dev support). They have a new HTML5 web based trading platform that is licensed with source code although I have not used this web version and so I cannot comment on it - but Ican say the desktop version has been more than sufficient for my needs. ModulusFE also bought out OpenForexPlatform (and offered a commercial license to all the open source contributors); so now you can license OpenForexPlatform under a commercial license without the GPL license. I have tried the OpenForexPlatform version and didn't like it as much. I also use NinjaTrader for some of my trading. I tried TradeLink and did not like that platform at all and did not like the community. I would avoid TradeLink at all costs. I have been programming since the 80's and that thing was just thrown together in an incoherent way just like OpenForexPlatform. I'm sticking with M4 and some other software I have developed for myself. Sorry for the long winded reply but I recommend checking out ModulusFE's HTML5 platform. Again I have not used it but I have used their other products.

    • Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (July 23 - 27, 2018)          Here’s the market outlook for the week:   EURUSD Dominant bias: Neutral   Price made a bullish attempt on Monday, but started coming down afterwards. The support line at 1.1600 was tested and price bounced off it, closing above another support line at 1.1700. The market is neutral, and that status will continue as long as price oscillates between the support line at 1.1550 and the resistance line at 1.1800. However, the neutrality in the market will soon end, and ensuing movement could most probably favor bulls. This means a break above the resistance line at 1.1800 is possible before the end of the week.   USDCHF Dominant bias: Neutral This pair also went downwards at the beginning of last week, and then rallied around the middle of the week, only to come downward again at the end of the week. Price closed below the resistance level at 0.9950, threatening to go further downwards. The bias on the market is eventually neutral, and it would remain so until the support level at 0.9850 is breached to the downside. The most probable direction is southwards.   GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish GBPUSD is a weak trading instrument. Since April 14, price has been going downwards. Price moved briefly below the accumulation territory at 1.3000, and then rallied by 170 pips, almost reaching the distribution territory at 1.3150. The bias remains essentially bearish (but perpetual bullish effort could threaten the bearish bias). There are additional distribution territories 1.3200, 1.3250 and 1.3300.   USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish After testing the supply level at 113.00 several times, a bearish correction was started, which made the price close below the supply level at 111.50 on July 20 (a drop of 150 pips). The bias is bullish in the long-term, but going bearish in the short-term. Things will go completely bearish when price moves further downwards by another 200 pips, reaching the demand levels at 111.00, 110.50 and 110.00, and going further downwards.   EURJPY Dominant bias: Bullish   The market had been going upwards since June 28 until recently. The recent bias is bullish but there is a high possibility of price going bearish. Price has made a bearish U-turn, after almost reaching the supply zone at 132.00. It is expected that price will continue to go downwards this week, thereby rendering the recent bullish bias invalid and reaching the demand zones at 130.00, 129.50 and 129.00. Those demand zones may even be exceeded before the end of July.   GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bearish There is a Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, as a result of a drop of 300 pips last week. The drop has already generated a bearish signal in the market, brought about by the perceived weakness in GBP, and the strength in JPY. This week (even till the end of July), the outlook on JPY pairs is bearish, and that means GBPJPY also will experience further bearish movement, which would enable it to reach the demand zones at 145.50, 140.00 and 135.50.         This forecast is concluded with the quote below:   “A surprising insight for me in Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards was that most of the top traders he interviewed are 1-trick ponies: they do one thing — and they do it very well. Their success was built upon their ability to discover what others overlooked. I concluded that ‘doing one thing well’ would immediately simplify my trading life and could eventually evolve one thing into an important trading edge.” – VTI   Source: www.tallinex.com

    • Hi All, What trading platform do you prefer for US Equities? Pros and Cons? thanks! 
    • Very interesting question. Personally, I believe market swings in those sectors are influenced by other factors, not only the presidents' background or agenda. Having said that, it may be worth regressing the data for a firm conclusion.
