AlgoTrader Announce a New Open Source Algorithmic Trading Platform
AlgoTrader today announced a new open source algorithmic trading platform. AlgoTrader is an automated trading system that can trade any type of security on any market available through Interactive Brokers and/or the FIX protocol (real soon now!). All aspects of trading such as obtaining market data, analyzing prices, taking trade decisions, placing orders & tracking executions can be automated. The new platform uses the Esper complex event processing engine, and is based on Java SE 6.0, Spring, and a Model Driven Architecture.
An initial version of AlgoTrader is now available Open Source at http://code.google.com/p/algo-trader/
Features of the system include:
- Automates trading strategies based on trading rules (using Esper EPL)
- Automated execution via different broker interfaces
- Backtesting and simulation of trading strategies based on historical data
- Portfolio tracking & performance measurement
In the interests of transparency I should point out that I'm a member of the AlgoTrader development team. If you are interested in contributing to the project too then please get in touch.
