The selection of a trading platform is a significant and strategic decision. To take a decision merely because a data feed can be configured for one platform more quickly than another is absurd.
I agree, the end choice is indeed signicant and possibly detrimental. I do appreciate the discussion. However, it was just my first impression and is why I stated it might be a minor issue in order to give myself some wiggle room. I have found that more often than not, a program's ease of implementation is indicative of how well thought out the rest of the software has been developed. I cannot think of a more important aspect in order to sell your product than the initial impression. Isn't that the whole point of a trial period?
From my point of view, NeoTicker is not as intuitive to get up and running compared to some other solutions being considered, MT4 included. That doesn't mean it is the overall best/worst solution.
My objective is to have a successful model I can optimize and massage that can be traded via a mechanical system with the least amount of distractions possible.
