Open Source Trading Platforms (Master List)


For the uninitiated, the first question will be why do they need to go with an open-source project (OSP) after all? OSP can in no way compete with the support and timely updates of a commercial platform. The answer depends on your needs. A retail commercial platform such as Amibroker on Ninjatrader shall be able to address most of your requirements. But everything has limitations, and because their source code is proprietary, it can be hard to extend their capabilities. This is where people invest time/money to trade with an OSP. I started looking at options with the need to connect Amibroker with Sterling API.

 

I will be updating this list regularly, please add your comments.

See wiki above for using with NinjaTrader

The only one that I came across a while back is OpenForexPlatform, Its not limited to Forex as you can connect to several API, However you mentioned Sterling so Tradelink may be the best solution as the work is already done for you.

 

What have you decided on?

Yes traderlink is the best bet, though it will need some customization. But even with that Traderlink+Sterling seems to be a more efficient solution than Ninjatrader+custom interface+Sterling.

 

Though I will actually implement this after few months, currently have other priority.
