HI Fxtrader
 
Autobahn (DB) is not an ECN they are a market maker!
Thanks for replaying & Sorry for the mixup. I dont care if i am trading ECN or market maker as long as he execute my trades.


Until now I used MT4 & Trade station as framework to build, and test the algo that are being used for trading...
I am trading today with ALPARI UK & GAIN CAPITAL. (Mt4 brokers)

I am looking to upgrade my capabilities. (Also since I want to start to involve into other markets, not just fx)

I posted some Q in the forum with no success, maybe you can give me couple of cents... :-)

Regarding the broker/ platform who you recommend me on ?

Regarding the framework:

Things that I must have in the platform:

1. The ability to work with Real time Data.
2. The ability to use my Owen Data feed (since I am not working on a lot of different markets).
3. High performance regarding Back testing and using Tick Data.
4. The ability to program algo that is trading from the Order Book.
5. A platform that can store a lot of Tick Data in flexible way (not so important as the others).
6. a good interface that can allow me as a developer to get info from the chats in visual mode.

The platforms that have general info are ::

OpenQuant, MultiChats, TradersStudio, Right Edge, Trading BLOX


And also there are the intestinal platforms….but there are to many, and I don’t know if they are worth the money. ?!@

Thanks at advanced ... anyone ?
