How much did it cost $100 or $6000 ? Think you really need a degree in Computer Science & programming - there are specialised boards on Yahoo etc. Personally I have a copy and copy of Easy language Data, programming and just about anything associated with it - It remains in my unused CD collection ..... enuff said... But then I'm just a thicky Forex Trader!!

Well it costs around 4000 pounds but that is the prosuite, which includes tradestation, and two more programs. :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

I'm not that bad in programming (I have a degree) but would like to know where to purchase EasyLanguage and is it really necessary to reprogram Tradestation.

EasyLanguage comes with Tradestation, so no need to purchase it separately. I'd start by reading the manuals that come with it, they will give you the a grounding in using TS2ki and how to program new trading strategies with EasyLanguage. If you're a graduate in computer programming, you'll find EL a doddle.

ilia king,

If you have a legitimate copy then you can register at https://www.tradestationworld.com/discussions/Category.aspx?Cat_ID=40

There are literally thousands of easylanguage indicators posted by users of Tradestation and you will also get support from Omega on the same site.

I have found it invaluable for writing code when I have got stuck with something. Writing the code is actually quite easy but occasionally there will be something that is a bit tricky and so I go to the site and post a question which normally gets answered pretty quickly.

Thanks Guys - I registered to TradeStationWorld, so far I'm exploring it. Are there any books on EasyLanguage - but I think the code is similar to VB or c++.NET. Also does it really help to program it to your needs

ilia king,

You only use Easylanguage to write indicators that you dont already have or maybe to modify or write a new one. I dont know of any books that would help but the Help file in Easylanguage is pretty good.

Ok. Thanks everyone, I'm going to order the book Rognvald recommended and finish reading the help files.

Another question that springs to mind :cheesy: is have any of you modified some of the indicators or re-programmed Tradestation? Did it help?

Thanks very much :cool:

Sharky - Easy Language comes with it - the Manual I believe is extra - Which I purchased on Disc. .......its extensive.

ilia king,

I have used Easylanguage extensively to make my own indicators and to modify those already supplied by Tradestation. I have also used it to provide combined signals and what if situations to develop a trading strategy.

Has it been of use ? Undoubtedly in my view but it all depends upon what you are trying to achieve.

Also I am not a progammer so if I can do it then I am sure others can.

ilia,
I think you can dl the pdf manuals (user and
reference) + help somewhere from the Tradestation site.
I am not sure of the exact link - sorry.

If you cant find them PM me.
