It provides broad functionality for receiving real-time data, displaying graphs, and entering investment positions. Although it comes with a large number of pre-defined indicators, people can create and display their own indicators using the EasyLanguage integrated programming language.
TradeStation manages the development, testing, and automation of all aspects of trading. Trading strategies can be back-tested and optimized from historical data before being made operational and traded “in real life”. TradeStation can either be used as a test and research tool, or as a trading platform with TradeStation Securities acting as a brokerage firm.
