It is what I needed
I have used much software throughout the years and there was always something missing and I could get my work done like I wanted to. But everything changed when I found TradeStation; it made everything simpler and better
There is a QuickStart feature in TradeSation that helped me to recognize scope and complexity for navigating the stock, options, futures and forex markets.It is easily accessible from the Help main menu, and it presents an uncluttered window of iconic panes that took me to default workspaces that contain many of the trader’s necessary tools. Also, default workspaces include quote and chart windows, an order entry bar, and the TradeManager, which is used to monitor trade status. Support and training links also are displayed. QuickStart gave me a toe-hold, but actually it doesn’t eliminate the need to understand many features of the pre-configured workspaces.
Quick Trade Bar
In this program I like that Quick Trade Bar offers streamlined order entry graphics. It can be used with stock, futures and forex markets. TradeStation 9.0 has three distinct mechanisms for manual order entry: The standard order entry bar which is near the top of the desktop, the Matrix point-and-click price ladder order entry interface, long a favorite of discretionary day-traders and the new Quick Trade Bar. Maybe the only missing order entry feature is the ability to manually place and manage orders from within a price chart.
It leads the industry in promoting automated trade strategy development and execution for the retail and small institutional trader. TradeStation is the best because has EasyLanguage, a programming language reminiscent of a 1980s/90s programming language, and it has support for price charts, technical indicators, and order and account management, and this leads for the point of trade strategy development.
The easy programming language has a big reputation like excellent fast-prototyping tool for algorithmic trader. The trade ideas can be programmed and back tasted quickly in order to determine the efficacy. It can be taken to the foreword with additional development and live order execution development when the strategy looks promising.
One of the best things for the program is that I don’t need to check for new updates because the product includes automatic update. TradeStation charts and graphics always have been attractively and professionally rendered. The new 9.0 was given a face-lift with new graphics and icons while the overall application layout, has remained consistent.
Well I see a positive view of its hierarchical design, the trader, using a single subscription and internet connection, because it can configure any number of screens. The retail trader or small institution it also can cost-effectively build a sophisticated trading desk with banks of monitors. This is where I think that the key feature of TradeStation and underlies the overall goals of the product is that it gave me access to technology on par with the professional. Broadband internet and low-latency direct access networks help to make this a reality.
