Different Programming Languages

Postby PirataTM » Thu Feb 09, 2012 8:48 pm

Hi all, I'm new to this whole automated trading, I have seen that has a type ProRealTime package called ProBacktest platform for strategies or at least for backtesting. I have also seen that MetaTrader is a programming language called MQL. The question is, do people opted for one or other by language, by the platform, prices in commissions, spread ...? Why it's best automated trading, with SindicoreSDK LUA, MQL with metatrader, backtest? I know this forum is about the SDK, I just want information, because before you start teaching me how to program in one of the languages ​​I want to know which is better or which is more powerful. IF anyone can help would greatly appreciate it really.

Thank you very much.

I am a programmer and trader.
I long seek the best platform out there.
TS / Marketskope is it, in my opinion,
due to the intuitiveness, ease of order placement.

Commissions and spreads do not depend directly on the platform,
can vary from broker to broker.

In my opinion, the SDK is somewhere in the middle of the ease of programming.
MQ4 is generally much more complex has some limitations, though he has some good sides, and I personally do not like to use it, as end user or programmer.
