I am looking for advice on how to quickly:
1. Learn the basics of easyLanguage in a time efficient manner, and
2. how to create strategies in TS 8.0

Would somebody know some good resources, training (preferably on-line) etc.?
Thanks

Yes

I too am interested. I know that tradestation have a easy language user guide/manual for 2000i that costs about $49 and for TS 8 a pdf user guide/manual comes free with the subscription. Not sure if such info is available elsewhere though.

I have downloaded the pdf user manual but although text is quite clear I find putting instruction in practice in TS 8 not very userfriendly. It almost seems as if the manual was written for an earlier version of TS which had less and different functionalities. No doubt it is only because of my "thickness" or inability to follow instructions (lol).
Nevertheless tips to resolve this issue would be most appreciated?

I learnt easy language by looking at the indicators already in the library in TS, it is really pretty straight forward. Start with looking at code for Moving Average and take it from there. All you really need is the Library in power editor as that gives you descriptions of all the functions.

Does anybody know how to change colour of an indicator in easylanguage due to set of rules, when that function is defined as a function and called as a function in the code?

There are some EasyLanguage online books available in pdf format at :
http://www.tradestationsupport.com/books

Apart from the first one, I think all the others are free to view.

There are also some tutorials at :

Thank you for tips, enough material to work on.
Sun, thanks tutorials are helpful and much quicker than the book. I had overlooked that feature.
TWalker, I will take your advice, sounds like good idea to use the existing TS stratgies to get a good grasp. Thanks
Jimvt, traders2traders seems a very educational site, thanks

Hi

besides a TS2000i easy language guide - as mentioned above, is it possible to get an actual TS2000i manual in .pdf or similar saveable format?

Thanks

jtrader.

I haven't seen this in pdf I'm afraid.

FWIW the original TS2000i product came supplied with 3 small books and a a set of cassettes. The books were:
"Learning to use EasyLanguage", "Trading with Tradestation 2000i" and "Trading as a Business" (by Charlie F Wright).

The first book is really redundant if you have downloaded the guide described above as the downloadable guide contains more information.
The second book, which you might conceivably want, gives an overview of the programs features, though there is no great detail here either.
The last book is available at spytrdr.com. The cassettes are just padding really and are just a recording of a presentation Charlie Wright gave somewhere on the contents of his book.
