Automated Trading System (Again!)

Hi

I'm new to this forum but am hoping to be a regular.

I am putting together an automated trading system based initially on EOD.

I'm doing this for a couple of reasons:
1. I just don't have the time it takes to watch screens
2. I am a software engineer so have the skills on hand (plus the interest)
3. I can make it work how I want it to work. I've looked at other software and the one thing that makes an impression is just how un-intuitive it is (to me, anyway)
4. Emotion / psychology is a real problem, um, challenge. Automating it, in theory, should remove this.

I have a couple of strategies that I've modeled and am currently testing against my broker's data ( you got to be sure your calc's are calculating correctly!)

The initial strategy is based on Simon's Lazy Trading System for ALSI(info here). I'll follow this up with Lazy Trading for Indices and then something based on the Turtle Trading strategy.

Initially the system will just email / tweet / sms alerts. The aim would be to automate trades as well, but that will require more thought than I have put in to it currently (not the practicality of doing it, more the advisability :) )

If you've tried this / got some resources / got some thoughts it would be great to hear. I'm not getting hell of complex - in my case KISS rules.

For those interested it's C# and MySQL.
