Hi -- I've used Tradestation 2000-i from Tradestation Securities (formerly Omega Research) for 7 years and have been happy with this program overall. Nowadays you have to open a brokerage account with them to get their latest version, but Tradestation is still pretty much the industry standard for system development. Easylanguage (based on Pascal) is the format used to develop and backtest your own custom systems with this software. Good luck.
